Dylan's iconic Blonde on Blonde

Highly desirable Blonde on Blonde promotional album signed perfectly on the front cover in black felt tip by Bob Dylan. In fine condition. The back cover is gold-stamped “DEMONSTRATION / Not For Sale” and both records are included. Accompanied by a full letter of authenticity from REAL and a letter of provenance from Jeff Rosen, president of the Bob Dylan Music Company, in full: "I represent Bob Dylan and have done so for many years. In 2017 he signed a number of individual albums on a rare and limited basis, including the album photographed here. I can say for certain that it is Bob Dylan's signature. The chain of custody is directly from Bob Dylan to myself." The album itself is from the personal stock of Jeff Rosen and Bob Dylan.

Often ranked as one of the greatest albums of all time, Blonde on Blonde represents not only one of the first double albums in rock history, but also the culmination of Dylan's influential 1965-1966 period that included Bringing It All Back Home and Highway 61 Revisited. The genre and boundary-crossing brilliance of Blonde on Blonde—recording sessions were split between Columbia Studios in Nashville and New York City—was praised by critics and the public alike, with the album attaining double platinum status on the strength of singles 'Rainy Day Women #12 & 35' and 'I Want You.'

A sensational example of one of Dylan’s greatest albums, signed in a controlled environment, for his trusted business manager of 30-plus years. An unprecedented event, especially for the ever-elusive Dylan.
