Bob Dylan
Another Side of Bob Dylan (in Mono)

  (Item #: dylananoth_1807_1) 

Our Price: $149.99

  • An excellent Mono copy of this early Dylan classic with surprisingly good Double Plus (A++) sound throughout
  • We were impressed by just how clear and present Dylan's voice sounded on this copy - this is the way you want to hear the man
  • Many classics are here: All I Really Want To Do, Chimes Of Freedom, My Back Pages, It Ain't Me Babe and 7 more
  • 5 Stars: "Another Side of Bob Dylan is a more varied record and it's more successful, too, since it captures Dylan expanding his music, turning in imaginative, poetic performances on love songs and protest tunes alike. The result is one of his very best records, a lovely intimate affair."

Our Price: $99.99

  • Wonderful sound for Jones' sophomore release, earning excellent Double Plus (A++) grades on both sides
  • Lee Herschberg recorded Rickie's debut smash album as well as this follow-up, and both can sound very, very good
