This is an incredible sounding Original Columbia pressing of what I consider to be Dylan's masterpiece. It comes with the burgundy card stock inner sleeve. I did a big shootout for this one recently and this was easily one of the better sounding copies, and beyond that the vinyl plays pretty quietly throughout. The sound is clean and clear with a really strong bottom end -- check out that solid bass on Simple Twist Of Fate. I'm pricing this one based on the great sound and quiet surfaces, you can certainly find one for cheaper but this one will beat most. For an album like this I want a copy that leaves no barriers to my appreciation of the music, and this one did the trick!
5 stars on Allmusic: "Dylan made albums more influential than this, but he never made one better."
Vinyl: EX (super clean)
Play notes: Excellent sound and quiet vinyl - a very strong copy!
