Offered for sale is a still sealed copy of the Mobile Fidelity half speed mastered edition of Bob Dylan’s 1964 LP, The Times They Are A-Changin’.
Bob Dylan’s third LP, released in early 1964, was his first album of all original material and features the title track, which has become a classic of the folk-protest movement. Mobile Fidelity released this LP in the mid-1980s as a representative example of his early 1960s work.
Every title ever issued by Mobile Fidelity is collectible in its own right; their pressings from 1978 through 1989 were pressed in Japan by JVC on their proprietary Super Vinyl, an exceptionally resilient, dead-quiet vinyl compound. These records were mastered at half speed; both the tape and the cutting lathe were run at half the normal speed, allowing the cutting head to cut a more accurate groove in the acetate. The finished product featured dead-quiet vinyl, with improved dynamics, better imaging, and tighter bass. By their very nature, all of Mobile Fidelity’s titles were limited-edition pressings, and a few titles were limited to 5000 numbered copies.
This copy is still sealed in its original perforated loose bag, and is unopened, unplayed, and presumed to be perfectly mint. The cover has no dents, splits or tears. If you’re looking for a beautiful, sealed copy of this iconic album, you’ll have a hard time finding a better example.
