This album was my first introduction to Bob Dylan, and still in my top 5 favourite Dylan-albums. The sonics are ok to me. No complaints.

I'm quite sure this will be the "definitive version" of this timeless rock album. Get it before it's OOP. Recommended.

With good marketing everything is possible. The best example are the "Beats Audio"-headphones by Dr. Dre. Let the people behind Beats Audio launch sacd, dvd-a or bd-a and there will be a market for (in combination with a download for portable devices). The problem is the lack from record labels.
