Offered for sale is a still sealed stereo first pressing of the 1967 LP Bob Dylan’s Greatest Hits by Bob Dylan, including the original poster.
About this copy: This copy of Bob Dylan’s Greatest Hits is a still sealed stereo first pressing, with the original KCS 9463 catalog number and the black hype sticker on the shrink wrap that lists both the mono and stereo catalog numbers.
Later issues had a maroon sticker, rather than a black one.
As the album is still sealed, the record is presumably new and unplayed. It should have the original Columbia label with the “360° Sound” logos (see photo for example.)
The shrink wrap is fully intact, with no rips, tears or holes. There are two small corner bends.
A hype sticker is attached to the wrap that says “CONTAINS GIANT FULL-COLOR DYLAN WALL POSTER.”
See photo for example of the poster.
A nice copy of a terrific LP and the only sealed original stereo copy we’ve ever seen.
Bob Dylan took some time off after releasing Blonde on Blonde in 1966, largely because he was recovering from a motorcycle accident. Columbia records took advantage of his time off by releasing his first compilation LP, Bob Dylan’s Greatest Hits. While the album was originally issued in both mono and stereo, the mono pressings were only available for about a year before being deleted with all other mono titles in Columbia’s catalog in early 1968.
Arriving in 1967, Greatest Hits does an excellent job of summarizing Dylan’s best-known songs from his first seven albums. At just ten songs, it’s a little brief, and the song selection may be a little predictable, but that’s actually not a bad thing, since this provides a nice sampler for the curious and casual listener, as it boasts standards from “Blowin’ in the Wind” to “Like a Rolling Stone.”
