I also owned it back in the s vinyl days probably on a stereo record but this new MONO pressing blew me away with it's body, soul and clarity. Suze Rotolo There be a whole lot of liner notes on the other side of the cover that you can actually READ.. It's all win-win with this vinyl.. You should already have the stereo cd box set anyway but when you are holding vinyl in your hands then you feel you have something truly substantial and lasting..
This is a work of art in all respects and you should own it. Excellent release on vinyl, which sounds great Fantastic CD of release inside package too.

This was Dylan's second LP dating from and is an audacious step-up from the previous year's "Bob Dylan" which saw the singer emerge almost but not quite fully-formed.
Here there's no 'Difficult second album' scenario as the set opens with the song Dylan is arguably most well-known for "Blowin' In The Wind". Dylan's peerless lyricism paints technicolor pictures, quickly becoming the anthem adopted by any protest movement you could care to mention and sealed Dylan's reputation as a protest singer.
A feature of the album is Dylan's appropriation of folk and spiritual melodies to his own ends, with "Blowin' In The Wind" based upon spiritual "No More Auction Block". This really isn't an issue as Dylan is following the folk tradition of re-appropriation and it's his lyrics that people principally buy his records for. Second track "Girl From The North Country" also follows that model, based in part on the well-known "Scarborough Fair", even recycling a few of the lyrics.
This is a major Dylan work. Running to nearly seven minutes this is supreme Dylan,. An astonishingly vibrant whole it's a powerful message yet full of mysticism, a true masterwork.

Never before has the resonance of his nylon guitar strings, fingerpicked notes, shivering harmonica fills, or plainspoken timbre possessed such clarity, openness, body, or realism.
With the advantage of wider and deeper grooves, the 45RPM pressing affords the opportunity to detect more information and lavish in extra richness. I'm pretty sure this record changed everything.
