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.
