Bob Dylan – 1962 Stereo First Pressing ‘Bob Dylan’ LP With 6-Eye Labels / The First Dylan Album Anywhere In The World
A very clean stereo first pressing of Bob Dylan’s 1962 debut album, with the ‘6-eye’ Columbia label.
Dylan’s first album sold very poorly on release, particularly in stereo, which at that time only appealed to the specialist/audiophile market. Only the very earliest pressings of Dylan’s debut had Columbia’s ‘6-eye’ label, with the record company coincidentally changing their label design almost immediately after this album’s release.
The barely played disc is in Near Mint- condition, with a few very superficial silent scuffs, and plays Near Mint throughout, save for five very light ticks at the end of ‘Man of Constant Sorrow.’ There are no spindle marks on either label, but there is a small sticker pull on the Side 1 label. The stampers are 1B/1B. The thick original cover is in Near Mint condition, and is the earliest variation, without John Hammond’s producer credit.
A mint copy of this album sold in July 2020 for $4,239.
