Bob Dylan Contest

Last week, I was telling you about Eric Clapton's latest release, Complete Clapton. This week I'm going to fill you in on another great artist who is also releasing an amazing career retrospective: Bob Dylan. Here's the description, straight from Columbia Records / Legacy Recordings:
The DYLAN retrospective is available in a three-disc collection covering three distinct periods of Dylan's ongoing musical evolution (disc 1: 1962-1967 - "Bob Dylan" through "John Wesley Harding"; disc 2: 1967-1985 - "The Basement Tapes" through "Empire Burlesque"; disc 3: 1986-2006 - "Knocked Out Loaded" through "Modern Times"). The 51 track collection comes packaged in an 8-panel digipak with a 24 page full color booklet and liner notes by noted music journalist Bill Flanagan.

The three-disc version of DYLAN will also be available in a monumental deluxe collector's box set, housed in a keepsake cloth-covered box with each of the three discs presented in classic LP-styled sleeves featuring iconic Dylan and Columbia Records imagery. The DYLAN box set comes with a 40 page book with extended liner notes and rare photos as well as 10 limited edition postcard lithograph prints highlighting pivotal moments from Dylan's career.

In addition, DYLAN will be available in a special single disc edition, packaged in a standard jewel case with a full color 20 page booklet, featuring 18 select songs from the retrospective. The single disc edition includes special introductory liner notes and song-by-song annotations by Bill Flanagan.
I'm not even going to suggest that I need to summarize Dylan's musical exploits here. What I will tell you though is that I have some INCREDIBLE prizes for THREE lucky winners. Here are the goods:
1 Super-Duper Grand Prize Winner:
1 Dylan leather iPod case
1 Dylan poster
1 Dylan CD single disc edition

2 Still Super but not quite Super-Duper Prize Winners:
1 Dylan poster
1 Dylan CD single disc edition
All you have to do to be in the running is leave a comment (or e-mail me) with your name and e-mail address and cross your fingers (only if you're in the lower 48 states though, sorry!). I'll choose the winners next Thursdayish and notify them via e-mail. Perhaps I'll stage a virtual steel cage death match to choose the Super-Duper Grand Prize Winner. Or maybe I'll just pick a name out of a hat. We'll see how my day went next Thursday.

Awesome post, Dylan can do no wrong in my eyes. Just watched No Direction Home for about the 20th time the other day :)
