Jeff Bridges narrates Bob Dylan's road to Big Pink and 'Basement Tapes'

To get there, Dylan and The Band drove from a Manhattan hotel to that upstate New York house, known to music lovers simply as Big Pink. Now, fans can take a virtual ride of the route they traveled in a new short time-lapse film, From The Village to The Basement, narrated by actor Jeff Bridges. Watch, below. 'Big Pink is a pilgrimage for people,' Legacy Recordings' digital maestro Tom Mullen, who wrote and created the 180-second film, told Mashable."
