from our friends at SoundStageDirect

Bob Dylan Greatest Hits (MONO) by Bob Dylan

Released in 1967, Greatest Hits marked the end of the first prolific phase of Bob Dylan's career: five short years that saw the pop music world - and our culture in general - markedly changed by the songs contained herein. Including such seminal touchstones as "Like A Rolling Stones", "Subterranean Homesick Blues", and "Blowin In The Wind", this definitive pressing is presented on 180 gram vinyl, from the absolute original analog mono masters.
