I bought this new this year at a local cd shop. I love the detail when it come to the individual CD'S.
As for the CD's I thought the sound was superior in mono as compared to the remastered stereo releases except for one CD. BLONDE ON BPONDE. I'll admit I was surprised that I really didn't like the mono as much. Compare Visions of Johanna and Mobile Blues again. The drums and the "thin mercury" sound overall is better in stereo IMO. The fold out album is impressive though. But having the music the way it was meant to he listened to is a must have for obsessive Dylanites like myself.
