Bob Dylan-Original Mono Recordings

Recommended Posts



The Original Mono Recordings are comprised of these albums painstakingly reproduced from their first generation monaural mixes as the artist intended them to be heard: One channel of powerful sound, both direct and immediate. While stereo recordings had been available as early as the mid-1950s, mono was still the predominant – and often preferred – mode of recording and mixing by the top artists of the 1960s. As a result, artists like The Beatles, The Rolling Stones and Bob Dylan devoted their attention to the mono mixes, leaving the stereo mixing process to studio engineers.


The Original Mono Recordings are accompanied by a deluxe booklet, featuring vintage photographs of Bob Dylan and an expansive essay from renowned author and critic – and longtime Dylan aficionado – Greil Marcus. Each disc in the set comes in its own individual jacket which faithfully replicates the original album artwork, complete with labels and stickers that were found on the original 1960s releases.


Also includes a limited edition 18" x 24" Bob Dylan poster.


The eight albums in The Original Mono Recordings are as follows:


* Bob Dylan – 1962

* The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan – 1963

* The Times They Are A-Changin’ – 1964

* Another Side Of Bob Dylan – 1964

* Bringing It All Back Home – 1965

* Highway 61 Revisited – 1965

* Blonde on Blonde – 1966

* John Wesley Harding – 1967

looking forward to it....i vaguely remember listening to the mono version of blonde on blonde that circulates round the interwebs. theres definitely an audible difference there, especially if you know the tracks well. this plus knowing that dylan really did spend large amounts of time on the mono mixes (at least on BoB and H61) makes this quite a noteworthy release imo.
