Just received one as a gift. Didn't even know it existed. Really?
Probably been out all Fall?

It's officially titled:
Special Collectors Edition - Rolling Stone - Bob Dylan - The Complete Album Guide

Quality presentation & nice layout. 100 pages. Nice photos.

Album by album short summaries & a few bootleg suggestions beyond the Series.

Makes me wonder why I'm hardly ever spinning the original releases in lieu of a billion recorded shows.

This would make a nice gift for someone expressing interest in Bob or someone who just likes this stuff.

Thanks for the heads up. It appears this is all new.
Cover is the same as current German RS:

From outside the UK, single issues can be ordered here (scroll down for the Dylan issue). The publication date is given as 7 December.

Oh, ok, this is new. I thought I was living under a rock.
(I mean, I never even heard of Adele till yesterday! Still not quite sure who she is...)

I see you posted some links on today's front page about this Rolling Stone mag thing, Joey.

The Dylan album articles are short & sweet, yet well written IMHO.
Worth obtaining.

Does everything get four or five stars?

I's a-gonna cry if CITH doesn't get 4 1/2, at least. :P
Are there plenty of ModBob photos?

They photoshopped the cigarette out of that image, I remember that well.

Depending on one's perspective (and perhaps a little creative thinking), every album would be 4 1/2 to 5 stars. After all, it IS Bob Dylan we're talking about.

I'd definitely awared CITH 5 stars. Out of infinity.

No star ratings. Just less page space.

The sixties albums get a couple pages of text each, plus photos, while the Gospels and many others are only granted 1/2 page. Time Out of Mind & Love/Theft get a couple pages each.

Xmas & Shadows still surprisingly get a 1/2 page when it should've been only 1/8 or maybe 1/4 max.

CITH is the only album that is not rated. According to my source, there aren't enough stars to give the album.

Considering the beauty, wonder, and awe inspired by Christmas In the Heart, that's the only reasonable explanation.

Most photos we've seen elsewhere.
They dedicate a two-page spread to that one of Bob reading a local rag in a 7-11 type store.
Funny.

There are some of the photo's from Paris in 2009. Including another of him in the Room by himself sitting on the chair with the Guitar and Harmonica Rack from a different angle and farther back.

I thought it was nice.

This is an older thread so maybe no-one is checking it, but ... I'd passed on this "magazine" before but I saw it in Target today and the little sticker said "Display until January, 2018". So, if you were interested - time may be running out ... :wink:
