Bob Dylan – French Mono “Blonde On Blonde” LP, With Unique Mixes, Alternate Album Cover

A beautiful French mono pressing of Dylan’s 1966 masterpiece double album, Blonde On Blonde, with unique to the French issue alternate mixes and a different gatefold sleeve.

As the superb Dylan discography website Searching For A Gem notes, “The French release is unique in that the gatefold sleeve has a completely different centre with French sleeve notes and pictures of earlier CBS France Dylan releases. All the pictures in the US/UK gatefold centre are missing. Stuck Inside Of Mobile With The Memphis Blues Again is here given as just “Memphis Blues Again” on the inside of the gatefold sleeve and record label. The records are unusual in that they have another set of mixes…(with the) US mix on Sides 1 and 4, but unique mixes on Side 2 and 3. (Expert) Roger Ford says: “The mixes unique to this release are of Leopard-Skin Pill-Box Hat, Temporary Like Achilles, 4th Time Around and Obviously 5 Believers. These mixes appear to be later than those on the Canadian mono album but earlier than those on the US mono.”

This example is in superb Near Mint/Near Mint condition, with the discs looking unplayed. This pressing is the early 70’s variant, as distinguished by the SACEM copyright designation on the labels. A beautiful example of a highly collectible—and outstanding—album.
