Here is my list...sorry for all the descriptive stuff at the end, its copied from a records list I have of all my records with all their information, for insurance purposes. I'm kind of OCD, lol, and have spent a lot of money is all.

1.) Bob Dylan – Bob Dylan (Sundazed Mono LP 5120)
2.) Bob Dylan – The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan (Sundazed Mono LP 5115)
3.) Bob Dylan – The Times They Are A-Changin’ (Sundazed Mono LP 5108)
4.) Bob Dylan – Another Side of Bob Dylan (Sundazed Mono LP 5121)
5.) Bob Dylan – Halloween Masque (Blind Boy Grunt/Philharmonic Boot)
6.) Bob Dylan – Bringing It All Back Home (Sundazed Mono LP 5070)
7.) Bob Dylan – Highway 61 Revisited (2) (Columbia Orig. Mono CL 2389/Japanese 70’s Import)
8.) Bob Dylan – Blonde on Blonde (Sundazed Mono LP 5110)
9.) Bob Dylan – John Wesley Harding (2) (Sundazed Mono LP 5123/70’s Stereo Repress)
10.) Bob Dylan – Exclusive (Saturday Evening Post Boot)
11.) Bob Dylan – Nashville Skyline (Sundazed Stereo LP 5124)
12.) Bob Dylan – New Morning (Columbia Orig. KC 30290)
13.) Bob Dylan – Greatest Hits Vol. II
14.) Bob Dylan – Planet Waves (Columbia Stereo PC 37637 Promotional Copy)
15.) Bob Dylan – Before the Flood (w/The Band)
16.) Bob Dylan – Basement Tapes (2) (Original Press and MoFi Release)
17.) Bob Dylan – Blood on the Tracks (3) (Two Original Pressings/80's German Import?)
18.) Bob Dylan – Blood on the Tracks (“The Freewheeler Tangled Up In Blood”/New York Outtakes Boot)
19.) Bob Dylan – Desire (2) (Two Original Pressings)
20.) Bob Dylan – Hard Rain
21.) Bob Dylan – Slow Train Coming
22.) Bob Dylan - Saved
23.) Bob Dylan – Oh Mercy (Columbia Original)
24.) Bob Dylan – Good As I Been To You (MOV)
25.) Bob Dylan – Time Out Of Mind (Columbia Stereo Orig. 1997 Mint)
26.) Bob Dylan – Love and Theft (MOV)
27.) Bob Dylan – Modern Times (Columbia 2006)
28.) Bob Dylan – Tempest (Columbia 2012 Stereo)
29.) Bob Dylan – Little White Wonder Vol. III
30.) Bob Dylan - Masterpieces

Also, a History professor and avid Dylan fan that my girlfriend knows well, used to work at a record store, but when they started going out of business due to demand decline for vinyl, he and his co-owner just took all the vinyl. He says he has a lot of original sealed Dylan records from different decades and is going to give me and her a list of them to buy, for good "not to make money, friend prices" as she put it. Can't wait for that. :)

You're an uncountable noun. By any reasonable nomenclature.

Not sure if it was that one so I cancelled the order, I'll investigate it further. Didn't want to end up with a green colour vinyl!!

It's probably the MOV one. Probably digitally sourced, but it sounds nice-I recommend it.

Thank you for your kindness in pointing me towards Steve Hoffman. I am sure he is a wizard in his field, and I promise I will seek his advice should I need an audio engineer. However, I must admit I’d never considered him to be an expert in English grammar, so - just as when I have a blocked toilet, I get help from a plumber, not a doctor (and vice versa if the blockage is intestinal) - when a linguistic problem crops up, I prefer counsel from Messrs OUP and CUP, Dr Partridge, or the Fowler Bros, rather than Mr Hoffman (with all due respect to him).

And I suggest you think twice before recommending Mr Hoffman in matters of English grammar - I did follow up your referral, and was led to the “Steve Hoffman Info Site” (http://www.stevehoffman.info/). If you go there, have a look at the caption under the photograph on the left, and see if you can spot the gaffe. It’s a good sheep/goats sorter for grammarians. (Yes, I realise it wasn’t written by Mr Hoffman, but he does endorse it.)

Yes--it's been advertised as the 1/2 speed remaster. But this is the third delay. I am losing hope.

My hope is dwindling as well. But! I did not know that it was a remaster of the half speed!? That jumps up my interest.

I have no doubt , and my correspondence with the company has influenced my doubtlessness, that these products will all make it to the market. Next on tap is the blonde on blonde, in march, and their last release was Jan. Timing the releases so they will actually get a return for the product is probably the biggest factor in the delays. I don't imagine freewheelin and another side sold as much as they hoped since a mono option is so much more desirable and affordable. In fact BIABH is the only one I've seen in the nonvirtual record stores. All in due time. I couldn't recommend the BIABH release strongly enough for those who are jonesing to make a Dylan purchase.

Seems that Mr Hoffman has now seen the light:
