Bob Dylan, "The Original Mono Recordings"
The bard's first eight albums as they were originally recorded and packaged, that's the selling point for this bountiful and meticulously packaged box, collecting releases from 1962-1968 including iconic titles like "The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan" and "Blonde on Blonde." For stereo-reared babies, the single-speaker-targeted sound is revelatory and intimate; for the less fanatical, and flush, among the following, a single disc version culling 15 tracks from the box is also available. (Amazon is also offering the set with a "bonus" live disc of a previously uncirculated recording of a show at Brandeis University in 1963.)
