Dylan

Available as CD Box Set and Limited Numbered Edition Harmonica-shaped USB on Tuesday, November 5. (Includes special 2-disc collection of rare singles tracks.) Complete Bootleg Series will arrive next year.

Legacy/Columbia Records are prepping for the release of Bob Dylan Complete Album Collection Vol. One, a colossal box set encompassing the entire official discography of the American songwriter-performer who’s revolutionized folk, pop and rock music over the past half century with a profoundly influential catalog of songs and sounds. It will be available on Tuesday, November 5, 2013.

 Beginning with tracks recorded for his eponymous 1962 Columbia Records debut album, the Bob Dylan Complete Album Collection Vol. One follows Dylan’s restless transformations across six decades as a singer, a songwriter, a concert performer and a studio artist who’s continually finding fresh ways of expressing and exploring the varieties of human experience, worldly and other, with music.

 Bob Dylan Complete Album Collection Vol. One brings together for the first time, on two “Side Tracks” discs, a wealth of previously released non-album singles, tracks from Biograph and other compilations, songs from films and more.

 The CD boxed set contains 35 studio titles (including the first-ever North American release of 1973’s Dylan album on CD), 6 live albums, the 2-CD “Side Tracks,” and a hardcover book featuring extensive new album-by-album liner notes penned by Clinton Heylin and a new introduction written by Bill Flanagan.

 The Bob Dylan Complete Album Collection Vol. One will be available as a limited-edition harmonica-shaped USB stick containing all the music, in both MP3 and FLAC lossless formats, with a digital version of the hardcover booklet, housed in a deluxe numbered box.

 Each of the albums in the Bob Dylan Complete Album Collection Vol. One is being made available in state-of-the-art sound, with 14 titles* remastered especially for this set.

 Coinciding with the release of the Bob Dylan Complete Album Collection Vol. One,  four decade-specific digital album collections–Bob Dylan – The Complete Album Collection – The 60’s, The 70’s, The 80’s, The 90’s – 00’s–will be released as online downloads.  A fifth digital album collection, Bob Dylan – The Original Mono Recordings, the artist’s first 8 studio albums in mono, will also be released as downloads.

 Dylan is currently enjoying the critical and commercial success of The Bootleg Series, Vol. 10 – Another Self Portrait (1969-1971), the latest release in the acclaimed Bootleg Series of previously unreleased live and studio recordings.  The Bob Dylan Complete Album Collection Vol. Two, slated for release next year, will compile the entire Bootleg Series for the first time.
