An eagle-eyed poster on the Bob Dylan news site Expecting Rain found an Amazon.com link to Sony Legacy’s “The Original Mono Recordings,” the as-yet-officially-unannounced boxed set of Dylan’s first eight Columbia studio albums in mono. The retail site lists the release date as Oct. 19; list price on the package is $129.98, while Amazon is pricing it at $116.99.
According to Amazon, the collection will include a 60-page book with notes by Dylan authority Greil Marcus. The individual albums — Dylan’s oeuvre from his eponymous 1962 debut to “John Wesley Harding” (1967) — will be housed in digipaks. No packaging art is displayed.
