Bob Dylan: 'The closest I ever got to the sound I hear in my mind was on individual bands in the Blonde on Blonde album. It’s that thin, that wild mercury sound. It’s metallic and bright gold, with whatever that conjures up. That’s my particular sound.'

This is the 2015 Legacy Edition of Blonde on Blonde from Columbia Records. This release is pressed on 180g vinyl and housed in a gatefold sleeve. The original album was recorded in Nashville in 1966, and stretches to double-LP length. Blonde on Blonde includes the fan-favourites Just Like a Woman and Sad Eyed Lady of the Lowlands.

Blonde on Blonde was for the most part recorded in Nashville, Tennessee, the home of country music, at the suggestion of producer Bob Johnston. It was an odd idea, but it worked. Johnston played a major role in assembling the band for the recording, which consisted mostly of Nashville studio musicians accustomed to backing country artists. The result is a more professional, polished sound. There is no doubt that the recording of Blonde on Blonde is professional, tastefully done. The obvious instrumental mistakes that can be heard on Highway 61 Revisited – out of tune guitars, missed notes, non-rhythmic rhythm guitar playing – are not present on this record.

Blonde on Blonde was the first rock double album, although double albums had appeared much earlier in other genres. Although it is a double album, it only contains fourteen songs. However, Sad-Eyed Lady of the Lowlands clocks in at eleven-minutes-and-twenty seconds, taking up one entire side.
