    Both are great. I tend to lean "Highway 61 Revisited" just because it is a little tighter, IMO.

    I prefer hwy 61 and own that version. It's very nice btw. I'm sure blonde on blonde is as well, but buy the one that you enjoy more.

    Infidels is an underrated album but I would buy hwy 61 first. Also used copies of Infidels are cheap and decent. Check out Nashville skyline too

    Yeah, if we're throwing out other suggestions, "Bringing It All Back Home" is one of my personal favorites. Best of both worlds, wordy acoustic Dylan and newly electric Dylan. Great songs too.

    Highway. One of the best albums ever made opening with one of the best songs ever recorded imo. When I listen to it it’s as close to perfection as albums with lyrics get and it blows my mind that fans couldn’t get past his change in direction. Sublime.

    Go Highway 61 for the inaugural run. Then move on to BoB. A couple less trodden that you need to explore - Oh Mercy and Planet Waves.

    Highway! But whichever you get if you’re going Mofi get the mono ones, they’re frighteningly good!

    Okay so after noting that the Blonde on Blonde was 7.5 minutes a side, for 9 sides I decided that was too stupid for me to deal with, so I got Highway 61 Revisited which is like 10.5 minutes a side. Also they didn't have Blood On The Tracks because that would have been a close second. Thanks for the input y'all!

    Actually upon second glance they're pretty much the same per side, but this has one less and cost 50 dollars less so... It wins.

    I mean 9 and 10.5 is really just a semantics argument anyhow.

    This is a white whale of mine. It is one of the few records I would consider dropping a hundred on if found in the wild...

    That specific press? So why would you put that ahead of the Mofi version which is pretty easy to come by?

    It’s truly the white whale of that version. Dylan pushed the masters +2% and some change. It was mastered from the un-sped-up tapes. It’s the “real-ist” version.

    It’s really more of a white elephant than a whale, but as I understand, it the pitching that happened did significantly change the sound.

    If you have any concerns in Mono or Stereo gimme a shout, I'm collecting all the Dylan stuff on MoFi and did a bit of research into each title.

    Thanks mate will do. As far as I know mono is fine on a stereo cart, just better on a mono one.

    Monos been absolutely fine on my 2M Blue. Also if you want the Blood on the Tracks Mofi it is now out of print and getting scarce, jump on a good deal if you see one because the prices are only going to go in one direction.

    @Mather @JoeMac7 I'm more or less talking about the sources for the Monos or Stereos, some are actual cuts from the Original Tape, and some aren't. For example, Bringin' It All Back Home MoFi in Stereo is sourced from Original Masters, the Mono is a 3rd Generation Tape I believe.

    If a MoFi release says "Original Master Recording" On the banner. It's from the Original Tape. If it say "Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab" it's a secondary source, just keep an eye out for that while grabbing Dylans!

    @DeadwaxDude didn't realize that subtle difference in the banner was what identified original or alternative source. Interesting! All the MFSL albums I own are "original" but seeing now that Highway 61 only comes in generic MFSL. What's the consensus on that album then MFSL or does another pressing do the job?

    I have the MSFL mono 45RPM of Bringing It All Back Home and Highway 61 Revisited and regardless of the source they’re still the best sounding presses of any albums that I own.

    @uvwxVinyl pretty much what @JoeMac7 said! They do all sound great, but if you're a Original Masters junkie it's just some good info to know :)

    But yeah I don't think they ever got the Original Tapes for Highway 61. I've heard the Mono is a better source for that one though, and the way to go!

    I'll sum with this

    Preferred pressings in Mono:
    Times They Are A Changin'
    Highway 61
    Another Side
    Self Titled
    John Wesley Harding
    Freewheelin'
