Bob Dylan – “Blonde On Blonde French Pressing With Unique Mixes & Inside Gatefold
An original 1960’s French Mono pressing of Bob Dylan’s 2 LP masterpiece, Blonde on Blonde, with alternate mixes and an inner gatefold unique to the French edition. French Mono Blonde on Blonde albums have the regular mixes on Sides 1 & 4, but for some reason have otherwise unreleased mixes and edits of the songs on Sides 2 & 4. The cover’s inner gatefold too is unique, dispensing with the usual photographs in favor of French liner notes, a photograph of Dylan, and cover minis and track listings of earlier French releases. (for more on the alternate mixes, see this exhaustive breakdown: http://www.rdf.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk/BobPart1/BobPart1.htm )
The earliest pressings have openings for the discs inside the gatefold near the spine, with BIEM publishing designations on the labels; this is a slightly later edition with openings for the discs at either end of the cover (as in other countries) and SACEM publishing credit on the labels. The cover is NM, the discs EX. Scarce.
