Sony Music Entertainment confirmed that a number of titles in its upcoming series of classic albums by Columbia Records artist Bob Dylan on hybrid Super Audio CD (SACD) will be issued in 5.1 multichannel surround sound. These titles are the first Sony Music hybrid SACD releases produced in the U.S. and will be available mid-summer.

Two titles originally announced for the first series of releases—Royal Albert Hall and Time Out of Mind—will now appear later in the series. Planet Waves and Blonde on Blonde will take their places in the first group of releases, with Blonde on Blonde debuting as a multichannel 5.1 release, superceding the original stereo SACD version of the recording. Another five titles—Another Side of Bob Dylan, Bringing It All Back Home, Blood on the Tracks, Slow Train Coming and Love and Theft—will also be released as 5.1 multichannel releases with accompanying stereo mixes.

The first 15 titles will also be the first Sony Music recordings to be released on hybrid SACD and will be produced on a new this month at Sony Disc Manufacturing’s flagship facility in Terre Haute, Ind. "The release of these classic Bob Dylan albums on hybrid Super Audio CD will extend the benefits of this exciting format to a much wider audience," said Jeff Jones, senior VP at Legacy Recordings. "Each of these Dylan titles will be painstakingly remastered and reproduced to the highest quality standards."
