2010 nine CD collection. The Original Mono Recordings collects Bob Dylan's first records as he mixed them and as they were originally meant to be heard - in mono. The box set features his first eight albums, from 1962's Bob Dylan to 1968's John Wesley Harding, as most people heard them and as they were expected to be heard - as one channel of powerful sound, direct and immediate. These mono-version albums have never been available on CD and will not be released individually. The albums are packaged in paper sleeves and all fit in a deluxe slipcase. The package comes with a 64 page book with new photos, album information and liner notes from eminent Rock historian Greil Marcus.

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.
Good to rediscover that big sound for the rock numbers, and the center sound for the accoustic ones with just Dylan and his gtr and harmonicas..
