Sound quality: Wonderful!Read more ›
However, I decided to give the "Best Of" disc a shot. Upon my first listen when it arrived last week, I became convinced of the value of this release and decided to go with the whole set. Even though Bob probably had little to do with the original production (aside from providing notes in response to an acetate copy of "Blonde on Blonde" while on tour in '66), it is worth giving ample credit to Hammond, Halee, Johnston, etc. for their efforts to present his work so well.
I would say that the mono mix of "Freewheelin'" alone justifies the purchase of this set. The subtle expressive nuances in Bob's voice are much more upfront when juxtaposed directly against the downstroke of his guitar. And it is also nice to hear Bob's spontaneous vocal asides during the harmonica breaks in "Bob Dylan's Blues" uninterrupted by the engineer trying to keep up on the panning dials!
Other highlights include the warmth of Bob's Nick Lucas Special in "Mr.Read more ›
I came to Dylan, through a friend, somewhere in the summer of "The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan" in 1963.Read more ›

|What is the MP3s download resolution included with Bob Dylan The...||
320 kbps, 44.1 khz. All 8 albums with artwork plus "Positively 4th Street." Be sure that you have a good connection, and that your hard drive won't go to sleep during the download, as it is a one-time use code. 320 is more than good enough for mono.

|Sundazed vs. Sony?||
The Sundazed issue of "Blonde on Blonde" played a hair slow. The Sony set plays at A = 440, which makes the songs feel more natural.

I'm pretty darn excited for this. We don't have the 2003/4 remastered Dylan album in shops here in Australia (although I've got a couple as imports), so it'll be great to have his best work in it's best mix.
I'm particualrly looking forward to Freewheelin' (guitar, harmonic, and vocals all in... Read More
