Huge Box Set Featuring Dozens of Bob Dylan Albums Due Out in November

Columbia Records/Legacy RecordingsA massive box set gathering together all of the full-length Bob Dylan albums released on Columbia Records during his half-century career will be released on November 5The Complete Album Collection Vol. One contains a whopping 35 of the folk-rock legend's studio efforts, as well as six live albums and a new two-disc set titled Side Tracks that features a bevy of non-album singles and songs from various compilations and soundtracks.

Fourteen of the albums included in the exhaustive retrospective have been remastered especially for this release, while the 1973 Dylan album will make its North American CD debut as part of the package.  The collection also will feature a hardcover book boasting newly written album-by-album liner notes by Dylan expert Clinton Heylin.

In addition to being available on CD, The Complete Album Collection Vol. One also will be sold as a limited-edition USB stick shaped like a harmonica.  You can check out a trailer promoting the box set online at

In conjunction with the box set, four special digital-only compilations will be sold that divide Dylan's albums up by the decades in which they were released -- the 1960s, the 1970s, the 1980s and the 1990s-2000s.  In addition, another digital anthology, titled Bob Dylan -- The Original Mono Recordings, will be released boasting mono versions of the influential singer/songwriter's first eight studio albums.

Fans also can look forward to The Bob Dylan Complete Album Collection Vol. Two, which will arrive sometime in 2014 and will include every installment of Dylan's Bootleg Series.
