What's All This Then

Why should I care what this guy has to say?

The correct answer is that you shouldn’t. We’re all entitled to our opinions. Develop your own. I try to be sane and rational, but that may change with the level of caffeine intake. I’m just telling my stories in the hopes they may amuse and/or inform others. And... I Confess... I'm showing off my bitchen collection a bit.

Dylan - A Tale of Two Blondes

Blonde on Blonde.  Dylan's classic album from 1966.



The outside unfurled


And the inside photos


A while back, I found a mono pressing.  It was a bit of a surprise to find different pictures on the inside gatefold.





I have a late '70's pressing in stereo.   Sad Eyed Lady of the Lowlands sounds extremely muffled.  Not so on the mono version.  The mix on all the other sides is stellar.  Even though there is a bit more surface noise, the loud pressing and the mix make this my go-to version of Blonde on Blonde when I'm in the mood.   Side 3 is currently my favorite Dylan side.  Side 2 has the hits.
