This album is awesomely good. The best Dylan album since Blood on the Tracks.

BUT, this latest (overdue, when you consider how much the original pressing has been going of on a certain auction site) pressing isn't perfect.

Both are relatively minor, but are irritating examples of poor quality control. I will live with the copy I have, but others should be mindful that 'Music on Vinyl' is no 'Mobile Fidelity'.
