Bob Dylan’s influence on popular music is incalculable. As a songwriter, he pioneered several different schools of pop songwriting, from confessional singer/songwriter to winding, hallucinatory, stream-of-conscious narratives. As a musician, he sparked several genres of pop music, including electrified folk-rock and country-rock. And that just touches on the tip of his achievements. Dylan’s force was evident during his height of popularity in the ’60s, but his influence has echoed throughout several subsequent generations.

Comes housed in a unique & fully silk laminated picture sleeve with pinched spine & scalloped flipbacks. Notoriously tricky to find for Dylan collectors, even in Japan, this is a Very Good example overall. The sleeve [VG] remains a nice off white but is fragile, & so has signs of ring wear creasing. Note: there is a small 1" paper tearin the middle of the spine & near the top right corner of the top flipback, both of which do not spoil the print. All text is legible & there is no writing. The vinyl appears clean & grades VG/VG+ with great playback. There are clearly some faint hairlines, spindle marks & signs of repeat use but playback reveals no jumps or heavy pops, just mild surface wear in the quiet sections. Normally in excess of £295, this would make for a suitable collection filler! YS-672-C)
