It wasn't always this easy. Before the blogs, before the Idols, before the paparazzi, becoming a music legend involved equal amounts of talent and hard work. An aspiring artist had many roads they could choose to walk down, but selecting the right one was essential. For young Robert Zimmerman, that long road led from Hibbing, Minnesota to Greenwich Village, where, recast as Bob Dylan, he began working on his craft in earnest. His journey from Woody Guthrie acolyte to "voice of a generation" seems incredibly rapid in retrospect but that was the tenor of those changing times. Along the way, he inspired millions, infuriated many, went electric and became both "Judas" and hero. He also became the single most influential figure in the history of rock. In other words, he became a legend.

After appearing as a guest artist on albums by Carolyn Hester and Harry Belafonte, Dylan launched his recording career on March 19, 1962 with the release of his self-titled debut. A mix of traditional songs, covers and self-written compositions, it showcased a singular talent who was at once in step and miles ahead of the folk revival. With each subsequent album, Dylan expanded his style and lyrical scope, sometimes moving so quickly that he left even his most ardent followers scrambling to keep up. His often inscrutable lyrics led to endless speculation and gave his musical peers permission to tackle subjects beyond trite romantic themes. He also became one of the most-covered songwriters in history, with artists from all genres recording and performing their interpretations of his catalog.

Sundazed is proud to present eleven essential Bob Dylan albums. Not merely building blocks, these are cornerstones of the rock genre and must-have selections for any well-stocked music library. All titles have been painstakingly remastered from the absolute original session tapes, nine of them in miraculous mono! All are carefully pressed to the highest quality standards. Most importantly, each of these albums chronicles a key chapter in an unparalleled career that is still unfolding. We hope you'll join us in honoring that career by adding these albums to your collection and playing them frequently. By doing so, you will be part of a continuum which began in the early 60's and continues to find new converts every day. After you expose them to the "thin, wild mercury sound" of Bob Dylan's timeless music, there will only be one question left to ask: How does it feel?
Dylan, Bob

      Say the phrase "Dylan went electric" to a rock music fan practically anywhere on the globe and they will instantly think of his infamous Newport Folk Festival appearance on July 20, 1965. It has become one of the most oft-told tales in modern musical mythology, with any number of versions depending on the teller. Did the crowd boo Dylan because he dared to plug in or were they merely upset at the short length of the three-song set? Did Pete Seeger really grab an axe and try to cut the...

          In just three short years, Bob Dylan had gone from being a complete unknown to rock's poet laureate, with his every utterance and move mined for meaning, both hidden and overt. The cycle of album-tour-album was taking its toll, even as he released his triumphant "rock trilogy" of Another Side of Bob Dylan, Highway 61 Revisited and Blonde on Blonde. Just as it seemed there was no way out, fate intervened on July 29, 1966, when Dylan crashed his Triumph Tiger 100 motorcycle in Woodstock, New...

            Heavy weighs the prophet's mantle. By 1964, after three revolutionary albums, Bob Dylan was chafing at the "voice of a generation" accolades that were piling up in his inbox. He was equally resistant to those, especially the folk purist crowd, who tried to constrain him to a particular role, admonishing him if he stepped outside of what they deemed the "correct" approach. Dylan came to see their rigid mindset as being just as restrictive as that of the "straight" society they sought to escape....
