Editorial Reviews

The Bob Dylan Complete Album Collection Vol. One is a colossal box set encompassing the entire official discography of the American songwriter-performer who's revolutionized folk, pop and rock music over the past half century with a profoundly influential catalog of songs and sounds.

Beginning with tracks recorded for his eponymous 1962 Columbia Records debut album, the Bob Dylan Complete Album Collection Vol. One follows Dylan's restless transformations across six decades as a singer, a songwriter, a concert performer and a studio artist who's continually finding fresh ways of expressing and exploring the varieties of human experience, worldly and other, with music.

The Bob Dylan Complete Album Collection Vol. One also brings together for the first time, on two "Side Tracks" discs, a wealth of previously released non-album singles, tracks from Biograph and other compilations, songs from films and more.

The collection contains 35 studio titles (including the first-ever North American release of 1973's Dylan album on CD), 6 live albums, the 2-CD "Side Tracks," and a hardcover book featuring extensive new album-by-album liner notes penned by Clinton Heylin and a new introduction written by Bill Flanagan.

All 41 official albums, including 14 newly remastered titles
Also includes a 2CD compilation of songs not included on the original albums
All the original artwork reproduced
Hardcover booklet with extensive liner notes and rare photos

There are 47 cds in this box set. The cds are housed in cardboard sleeves that are like little LP covers. The cds are not individually shrink-wrapped. Unfortunately that is the way cds and dvds are packaged a lot of the time, just slipped into cardboard. I would have prefered digi-packs. Oh well. All the 2LP sets are 2cds except for Self-Portrait which is 1 cd. It's CD cover opens like the old LP set, as do all the other 2cd sets' covers.
The box is very sturdy. It says 14 cds are newly remastered but it's actually 15 including "Self Portrait" which was previously only available with the deluxe copy of Bootleg Collection #10. The 2 cd set of extra tracks, "Side Tracks" is also remastered. It includes all the tracks from "Biograph" that are not duplicates of LP/CD tracks, the six tracks from Greatest Hits II, One track from Greatest Hits III and a couple of others. Unfortunately it does not include "Rita Mae". The tracks on the 2 cds set are in chronological order.
Speaking of chronological, you would need to listen to Basement Tapes after Blonde on Blonde and before John Wesley Harding and "Dylan" after Self-Portrait and before New Morning to hear them in order.
For now, don't sell your old remastered copy of "Street Legal". It sounds much better than the copy in this box set. My guess is the copy in this box set is a remaster of the old original mix. The other digi-pack remaster is re-mixed and remastered and sounds much better than the copy in this box.
The cover art for "Shot Of Love" does not list "The Groom's Still Waiting At The Altar", but it is on the disc. "Shot Of Love" is remastered. There was pre-sale discussion that it would not be, but it is beautifully remastered and "Every Grain of Sand" never sounded so good.

I imagine there are two kinds of potential purchaser for this 47-CD collection of all Bob Dylan's official releases, including live albums but excluding the Bootleg Series (which perhaps will form the basis for a future Complete Collection Two). One will be the person who has discovered a liking for Dylan and will grab the chance to get a comprehensive collection at a decent price. The other will be the enthusiast who has to have everything. There is something here for both, though the enthusiast will be getting a lot that they have already.

The box itself is smart, solid, and surprisingly compact considering the number of CDs it contains. Each CD is in a cardboard slipcase with the original album artwork, but without any printed inner sleeves. The double albums are gatefold but annoyingly the opening for the CDs is on the inner fold making them awkward to remove.

You also get a bonus double CD called Side Tracks which collects the extra tracks released on compilations like Greatest Hits 2 and 3, and Biograph.

Finally there is a high quality 270-page book which has the original sleeve notes and song-by-song band credits, supplemented by photos some of which are previously unseen, and finishing with a 43-page album by album commentary by Dylan biographer Clinton Heylin.

A few words first for the more casual purchaser. While 47 CDs must seem like a lot of Dylan, personally I think it is worth it. There is nobody like Bob Dylan and his words and vocal delivery move me like few other artists. His career is full of changes too.

This is a monumental collection of all Dylan's non-bootleg albums and "side-tracks" which don't appear on the albums, over 47 CDs. It's all here, from 1962's Bob Dylan to 2012's The Tempest. It's a mighty body of some of the finest songs of the last half-century which formed the soundtrack to the lives of millions of people and defined the adolescence of many of us. I haven't always liked everything the man has done (it would be surprising if I did over this long and with this many albums to his credit) but the vast majority of his work is excellent and I think that there are works of genuine genius here - and I don't say that lightly.

But then, Dylan's music needs no review from me. What is worth saying is that this is an excellent collection, with each album presented as a mini-LP and, although it's a substantial investment, it works out at less than four dollars per disc. It's a cracker of a box, and I thought a full list of contents might be helpful, so I've listed them below.

Is everyone excited about this release?
I looked at the list on to try to guess the 14 newly remastered titles. If you don't count Self Portrait as it has already been released as a remastered title with the bootleg vol 10 deluxe, it seems the 14 newly remastered albums would be... Read More

will these be SACDs or regular cds?
Regular CD's. Sony itself no longer supports SACD, though they do license out recordings(stereo-only) for SACD release by audiophile release by labels such as Audio Fidelity & Mobile Fidelity.

Where did the USB version go?
Ipods can handle the 24-bit/44.1kHz files as long as they are in the Apple Lossless or WAV format. If you want to go the free route, you can download the free FLAC decoding software and convert the files from FLAC to WAV. You can then import these WAV files into iTunes and convert them to Apple... Read More

Why Vol 1? What is left for Volume 2?
He's not dead yet! May he keep performing and recording for another 50 years. :)

What to Scrap and What to Keep
Got this from the Examiner:

"Of course, during his 50-plus year career, Dylan has released many more rarities that could have been included here. Hopefully, a similar release will rectify this on "The Complete Bob Dylan, Vol. Two," based around "The Bootleg Series,"... Read More
