I have it on an Edison cylinder. Definitely the best sounding of all.

Stop listening to the sounds and start listening to the songs.

I wouldn't be so fussy with most music but JWH is one of my top 3 fave Dylan albums so if there are any better versions I'd like to know what they are.

I've now heard the new MFSL 45 rpm vinyl set, it's very good, but it's mono, which may not be to all tastes.


My copy is Stereo (MFSL 2-423) and is excellent.

I think this is fair comment. One must avoid becoming obsessed with non-essential details. The man himself has been known to demonstrate new material to others on very primitive machines.

I don´t know about all this audio quality thing. The few times I have heard different versions of records, I cannot tell any difference. I cannot tell the sound of vinyl from the sound of a CD (unless I heard the vinyl cracks).
But I´m open to the fact that it might make a difference for someone with sharp ears (mine are good for nothing).
Mostly, I´m relieved I´m not into this, so I´m not chained to buying all different versions of a certain record in search of the best sound. I spend enough money on music as it is

Yeah, but if I make a trip to the Louvre to view the Mona Lisa, I want to see it for up close and in detail, not through the crappy security cam feed.

I didn't know they did a stereo 45 rpm set too.

For fun, here's a cassette version that has IDISSA switched with IBYBT to even out the side lengths and save tape. Back in the cassette days that practice was normal.

And the typeface is quite different.

As well as the ink quality!

IDISSA as the album closer is different, too. I kinda like it.

It blew my mind most bitterly that Blood On The Tracks, an album clocking in at almost an hour,wasn't given the 2-record 45 rpm treatment, it could benefit far more than something like the just under a half hour Nashville Skyline. With the latter, you're talking about album sides around 7 minutes apiece.
