    Highway 61 Revisited (Mono)

    Highway 61 Revisited on Numbered Limited Edition Mono 180 Gram 45RPM 2LP from Mobile Fidelity


    Dylan's First Entirely Rock-Backed Album Marks Sea Change in Sound and Potential of Popular Music


    Ranked #4 on Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time List


    Album-Opening Like a Rolling Stone Challenging, Bold, Revolutionary-And Arguably the Best Rock Song Ever Recorded


    Brilliant Collision of Evocative Poetry, Swirling Roots-Based Soul, and Hard-Driving Blues Sounds Incredible in Mono on Mobile Fidelity Vinyl: 2LP Set Strictly Limited to 3,000 Copies


    1965 Set Also Includes Ballad of a Thin Man, Desolation Row, and Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues


    Its title references the road that spans North Minnesota to the Mississippi Delta, and the formative blues, country, and roots sounds connected to its existence. The highway also lays claim to towering musical myths and deaths, many tied to the blues lexicon and narrative. All figure prominently on the revolutionary beacon that is Highway 61 Revisited, the 1965 set that overturned rules, upended preexisting limits, and utterly changed everything in its path. Ranked the fourth-greatest album ever made by Rolling Stone, its reach, power, and content boggle the mind more than five decades after its release.


    Mastered on Mobile Fidelity's world-renowned mastering system, pressed at RTI, and strictly limited to 3,000 copies, this restored analog mono version presents the life-altering music in reference-quality sound - so much so that the record's famous first lightning-strike note is now indeed the snare shot that sound[s] like somebody'd kicked open the door to your mind, as once described by Bruce Springsteen.


    Teeming with organic energy, palpable voltage, and countless textures, Mobile Fidelity's mono 2LP set faithfully recreates the instrumentation, moods, and events associated with the six days Dylan and Co. spent at Columbia's Studio A. While many people experienced Highway 61 Revisited in stereo even at the time of its release, hearing it in mono reveals even more definition, focus, and liveliness. In particular, Dylan's voice is surrounded by more space and atmosphere, and its forefront position makes the lyrics that much more powerful. This is the way everyone would've been introduced to Like a Rolling Stone on AM radio. There's no substitute for such authenticity.


    Recorded amidst a time of unfathomable turmoil and frustration that witnessed Dylan booed by fans, labeled a traitor, and call into question his work, Highway 61 Revisited roars and snarls, jabs and criticizes. Its bonfire of cynicism, fury, indignation, and absurdity forever transformed rock, what it could mean, and what it could do. Supported by a thundering, commanding band that included guitarist Mike Bloomfield and organist Al Kooper, Dylan hopscotches between tempos, moods, and melodies. The symmetry of the songs references a scattered hybrid of R&B, blues, folk, soul, gospel, vaudeville, and garage rock pieces that Dylan assembles in the shape of a brilliant, mind-teasing aural puzzle.


    Outside of "Like a Rolling Stone"-the six-minute-plus anthem that both challenged and chewed up all preconceived notions of an acceptable radio single by way of its length, ambition, and vitriol-every tune was captured shortly after Dylan's contentious performance at the Newport Folk Festival. The lingering impact of the hostility comes through in both the searing music and rich, literate, zinging poetry. Dylan's sneering tones, raucous arrangements, and unmistakable resentment toward both the establishment and counterculture that adopted him, and assume the form of songs such as "Ballad of a Thin Man," "Queen Jane Approximately," "Tombstone Blues," and the stupefying "Desolation Row."


    At its core, Highway 61 Revisited is about experience, reality, and the cruelties and truths that lie outside soporific safety nets and bourgeois ideals. These reasons-and the bold musicianship, ace performances, inimitable sonics, and vast lyrical expanses-are why the album means as much today as it did in the mid-1960s. Akin to Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band and Dark Side of the Moon, this is an album that everyone needs to own and hear in the best-possible fidelity.

    Another Side Of Bob Dylan (Mono)

    Dylan's Second 1964 Album Expands Songwriting Themes and Adds Levity


    Mono 2LP Mastered from the Original Master Tapes: Strictly Limited to 3,000 Copies, Vinyl Delivers Whimsical Feel, Surrealist Lyrics, On-the-Fly Fluidness in Sound Dylan Intended


    Includes I Shall Be Free No. 10, It Ain't Me Babe, My Back Pages, Chimes of Freedom


    The ever-evasive Bob Dylan never explicitly stated exactly what represented the another side of himself referenced in the title to his second 1964 record. Yet the whimsical moods, hallucinogenic prose, humorous angles, transparent mistakes, and noncommittal themes give a pretty clear idea at what the Bard hinted as he emerged from being labeled as a reluctant generation spokesperson and folk savior after releasing two highly intellectual, socially pioneering sets replete with protest songs. Dylan needed to take a breath, step back from the drama, and reevaluate his surroundings. Experienced in mono, Another Side of Bob Dylan is all that and more.


    Mastered from the original master tapes, pressed at RTI, and strictly limited to 3,000 copies, Mobile Fidelity's 180g 45RPM 2LP set illuminates Dylan's emotional condition - he laughs in the midst of songs, experiences a few false starts, hits a couple of bum notes, occasionally sings as if he's stumbling down a Manhattan sidewalk after having one too many at a smoky pub, prizes rawness over perfection - with microscopic accuracy and unparalleled directness. The preferred mix at the time of the recording, the mono version presents Dylan as he and his producers originally intended. Since the separation of the stereo versions isn't as sharp, this mono edition places Dylan's vocals in the heart of the musical action and as one with the accompaniment. It paints listeners an incredibly accurate portrait of the attention-getting, concrete mass of sound that features no artificial panning and straight-ahead immersion into the music. This is how almost everyone first heard this timeless album - making the mono mix all the more historically valuable and truthful.


    The uninhibited joie de vive is discernible in the rattling piano lines on Black Crow Blues, seemingly subconscious ramble of the hysterical folk rhyming of Motorpsycho Nightmare, bluesy dream sequencing throughout I Don't Believe You, and intentionally out-of-tune yodeling during All I Really Want to Do. On a majority of the prized set, Dylan lets his guard down, but does so in clever manners that speak to his surrealist imagination and biting wit. He possesses the rare ability to make planned strategies appear spontaneous, to challenge audiences with stinting wordplay and minimalist melodies that provide a deceptive false security.


    And so the apparently autobiographical and self-aware My Back Pages, one of the earliest examples of Dylan's immersion into symbolist prose and abstract metaphor, remains controversial for its on-the-surface denouncement of his earlier condemnations of social institutions and injustices. Peeled back, the tune is a brilliant release - an essential escape hatch for Dylan to both relieve himself of unneeded pressures and distance himself from pundits. As an indelible piece of art, it succeeds in masquerading obvious meaning while simultaneously forcing listeners to question their own actions.


    As is the trifecta of relationship-themed compositions that closes the record, as well as the eternal Chimes of Freedom, the standard that journalist Paul Williams dubbed Dylan's Sermon on the Mount. Its inseparable conjunction of apocalyptic imagery, personal emotion, allusive lyricism, balladic alliteration, and inclusive sympathy signaled that, having already eviscerated the rules associated with pop and folk music, Dylan had just begun his assault on our consciousness, making Another Side of Bob Dylan that much more mysterious, unequivocal, and requisite.

    The Mono Vinyl Box Set (Awaiting Repress)

    Bob Dylan The Mono Vinyl Box Set on Limited Edition 180g 9LP Box Set


    Cut from the Original Analog Mono Masters by George Marino at Sterling Sound: These Records Have NEVER Sounded Better in Any Format


    This is the ULTIMATE AUDIOPHILE Dylan LP Box: Don't Miss Some of the Most Timeless and Crucial Music Ever Recorded in Sound That Rivals What Was Heard in the Studio Control Room


    Each Disc Comes With Individual Jacket Replete With Original Artwork and Inserts


    Hear Dylan's Most Definitive Albums As They Were Meant to be Experienced: In Mono


    Includes Deluxe Booklet + Rare Photos and Greil Marcus Essay


    Bob Dylans first eight groundbreaking albums are returning for the first time ever in a limited edition box set of newly re-mastered mono versions on fully analog 180-gram vinyl.


    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.


    As is fitting for a box of this magnitude, 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.


    Cut from the original analog mono masters by the legendary George Marino at Sterling Sound, we guarantee this is the best you will ever hear Dylan sound. This set is simply unprecedented--some of the most important and timeless music ever made, now in jaw-dropping sound that rivals what was heard in the studio control room. Don't miss this!


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