Good product. Uber-poor packaging by Amazon.de,
Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Original Mono Recordings (Limited Edition) [Vinyl LP] (Vinyl)
Apologies for not writing in german. I ordered this box from amazon.de, because at that point they had the cheapest price I could find. I regret this decision. I will never order vinyl records from amazon again. They do not pack vinyl with the care it demands, let alone collector's box sets. A single thin cardboard in immediate contact with the product is all this box set had for protection. From the way the middle of my box has bent inward one can conclude that it has had some heavy weight on top of it. It is impossible to say how much pressure the actual records have received. Inside the box, my copy of "Freewheelin" had a damaged cover. This means that the re-sale value had plummeted. All the damage could have easily been prevented with reasonable packaging.
Even so, I can't be bothered with all the hazzle to send this box back to Germany. Besides, the L.E. version is now sold out so how would they replace it? I'm also gutted that my simple complaint (in english) was never replied to.
So, my advice is - do not buy vinyl from amazon.de/uk.
Also, make sure you check out the sundazed versions of Dylan's mono recordings before you buy this. They are audiophile quality and now sell for much less than this. I was dumb enough to buy this simply because it was "collectible". On hindsight I should have gone for sundazed instead.

About the sound: The sundazed versions are highly recommended and sound terrific! I do own the sundazed vinyls and the Columbia box and for being honest, I don't hear much of a difference. Both versions sound quite good. If you already own the sundazed vinyls, there's no need to upgrade.
About the packaging: Unfortunately amazon does not handle vinyls records the way it should be. I've often have to send my copy of records back due to damaged covers because of a poor packaging. Other sellers do better!
