As a long-term record collector, I have all of Bob Dylan’s LPs. I’m referring to the original vinyl on Columbia.
In the late ’80s I bucked the trend and managed to pick up many of his U.S. ’60s and ’70s white label promo vinyl releases in both mono and stereo (CDs were king, Dylan was out of favor, and nobody wanted LPs).
These were the very first pressings manufactured for DJs to play on the radio.
Of all his records, one underdog with The Band remains a personal favorite, Planet Waves. Asylum and Island Records released this one in 1974. Mofi made a hybrid SACD and 12″ 33rpm LP recently. All releases remains essential listening for me, but any copy will do…
