The Best Of The Original Mono Recordings
by Bob Dylan
Released: Oct 2010
If you aren't up to plowing through Bob's first eight albums to see how the mono versions differ from their stereo counterparts, then this best-of collection is for you. Because every one of these 15 tracks is a classic, you should detect the myriad differences between mono and stereo immediately. Take "Like a Rolling Stone" for example: Bob's voice/harmonica and Al Kooper's organ move to the middle of the overall sound, while the bass, drums and guitar push to the front. For those who have a hard time dealing with Dylan's nasally howl, these mono recordings will make more sense.
