Here’s something for Bob Dylan’s Zoomer fans.
A rare stereo copy of Dylan’s ‘Freewheelin’ with since-deleted tracks is atop the list at Heritage Auction’s July music sale.
“Freewheeling” was Dylan’s second studio album, released in 1963, giving us songs like “Blowin’ In the Wind,” “Girl from the North Country,” and “Don’t Think Twice It’s Alright.”
The one going to auction includes four tracks that were deleted and ultimately replaced by others before the album was distributed. It’s thought almost all of the mono and stereo copies the original musical lineup were destroyed.
Dylan, who is now 81, has never has spelled out why the original songs were removed and then replaced with others so the mystery remains.
The bidding starts at $60,000.
The album goes to auction July 9th.
