Product Description

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.

I held off for quite some time, but recently went for it and ordered the vinyl box set. I started with John Wesley Harding in order to hear tracks I had never had in mono. From the beginning I knew this set was going to be gold. I've had this album in stereo since it came out in 1968. I can honestly say I've never heard it like this. Charlie McCoy's bass jumps out and the whole sound is so tight. Next up is Blonde on Blonde. Looking forward to working through the whole set. If you really like Dylan, you've got to get the monos. If you don't have a turntable, I guess the cds will be almost as good.

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.

Those albums were made for mono and i've heard them first in mono in the 60s,

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..
