Maybe Bob Dylan’s Bootleg Series hasn’t sparked any completeist interest in your wallet. Well, Columbia Records and Legacy Recordings may have something that’ll light a fire under your AMEX. They’ve collected every (every) album Dylan has ever released and prepared The Complete Album Collection, Vol. 1.

All 35 of Dylan’s studio records — from 1962’s self-titled to last year’s Tempest — plus six live albums and a two-disc compilation of non-LP tracks make up the complete 43 CD collection. 14 of the albums are newly remastered, and this release marks the first time 1973’s Dylan has been pressed to CD in the U.S. The two-disc Side Tracks compiles 30 stray cuts from Biograph, greatest hits releases, and elsewhere, all arranged chronologically. Also in the box is a hardcover book with newly penned linear notes and rare photos.

Digital downloads of the albums broken into decades (’60s, ’70s, ’80s, and ’90s-’00s) will also be released, in addition to a new digital version of the first albums as Bob Dylan – The Original Mono Recordings. What’s more, The Complete Album Collection, Vol. 1, including all the artwork and everything in the book, will be available on a USB drive housed in a limited-edition harmonica-shaped case. Fancy pants.

Due out November 5th, the collection will be followed up next year with a Vol. 2 collecting the entire Bootleg Series. Priced at $279.98, pre-orders for Vol. 1 are going on now, with the USB drive available for $319.98.
