Bob Dylan 2013 The Complete Album Collection Vol. 1 (47CD Box Set)

Columbia Records and Legacy Recordings certainly have the ball rolling on the remarkable ouevre of Bob Dylan. Hot on the heels of Another Self Portrait, the rapturously-received tenth installment of The Bootleg Series, the labels have just confirmed the November 5 release of a Dylanologist’s dream: The Complete Album Collection Volume One. Yes, they’re all here – each one of the core, full-length live and studio albums released by the former Robert Allen Zimmerman on the Columbia and Asylum labels between 1962 and 2012. It’s a tour of people and places, real and imagined, all filtered through one singular perspective. By the numbers, that’s 35 studio albums (including the much-maligned 1973 LP Dylan in its first North American CD reissue), six live albums, and a new 2-CD collection of odds and ends entitled Side Tracks for a total of 47 discs. It, of course, adds up to a visit with Silvio, Isis, the Jokerman, Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum, Lily, Rosemary and the Jack of Hearts, and even the man who carried on his shoulder a Siamese cat – by way of Brownsville, Duquesne and Highway 61.

Following similar sets for Tony Bennett and Johnny Cash, Dylan’s whole career arc can be found on The Complete Album Collection Volume One. And what an arc it’s been, from convention-defying, folk-singing, protest-slinging “voice of a generation” to electric rocker to country crooner to born-again musical preacher to elder statesman to self-described “song and dance man.” Along the way, Dylan challenged notions of what a song could express, and paved the way for every young kid with a guitar and a dream to make his voice heard. Even today, there may be “another side of Bob Dylan” waiting to be revealed on record. Who else would have followed a genuine tribute to the Tin Pan Alley tunesmiths of yore on 2009’s Christmas in the Heart with 2012’s dark, brooding and very appropriately-named Tempest? Even as he criss-crosses the world over and over again on a so-called “never-ending tour,” Dylan remains the epitome of an enigma. But if there are answers to be revealed, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a better place to start than The Complete Album Collection Volume One.

After the jump, we’ll explore exactly what you’ll find here! Plus: pre-order links and a complete album listing with discography!

Of the 41 original stereo albums contained here, 14 have been newly remastered for this box while others utilize the most recent CD remasters. The freshly-spruced up studio titles include Self Portrait (also include in the deluxe edition of the latest Bootleg Series volume), the film soundtrack Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid, the outtake-centric Dylan, 1978’s swaggering Street Legal (presented here in its original mix; a previous remaster in 1999 boasted a new mix by producer Don DeVito), 1980’s faith-based Saved, three underrated eighties sets (Empire Burlesque, Knocked Out Loaded, Down in the Groove) and a further three from the early nineties (Under the Red Sky and a pair returning Dylan to his folk roots – Good as I Been to You and World Gone Wrong). Of the live albums contained in the box set, Hard Rain (1976), At Budokan (1979) and Real Live (1984) have also been newly-remastered.

The box set is rounded out by a new 2-CD anthology, Side Tracks. Its 30 tracks have all been previously released on CD, with more than half of them having originated on the 1985 box set Biograph. Other Side Tracks selections include the Oscar-winning “Things Have Changed” from the Wonder Boys soundtrack, the unique material on Bob Dylan’s Greatest Hits Vol. II (“Tomorrow is a Long Time,” “When I Paint My Masterpiece,” “Down in the Flood (Live),” “I Shall Be Released,” and “You Ain’t Goin’ Nowhere”), one unique cut from Greatest Hits Vol. 3 (the alternate of “Dignity”), a handful of singles (including, naturally, the non-LP hit “Positively 4th Street”) and even a Bootleg Series track (“Series of Dreams”). Side Tracks does include the acoustic version of 1974 single “George Jackson” but not the rarer big band version; a handful of other single sides and previously-compiled tracks are likewise absent. Dylan has also officially released a number of other live, one-off and soundtrack performances over the years, which may be fair game for a future compendium.

The Complete Album Collection Volume One represents one of the most significant bodies of work in American popular song to be collected in one place. Its accompanying hardcover book features new album-by-album liner notes by Clinton Heylin, author of such Dylan studies as Revolution in the Air and Still on the Road, plus a new introduction penned by Bill Flanagan. For the digitally-inclined, the box set will be also be available in a limited, numbered edition as a harmonica-shaped USB stick containing every track in both MP3 and FLAC format with a digital version of the book. Four decade-specific digital releases will also be issued on November 5 to coincide with the release of the box set: The ‘60s, The ‘70s, The ‘80s and The ‘90s-‘00s. The Original Mono Recordings, containing mono versions of Dylan’s first eight albums, will become available in digital download format on the same date.
