Here is another one of those " to die for" European releases of the late 80's.  This 1987 GWW release boasts a slick, gatefold cover.  Incredible life-size photo of Bob on front.  Nice photo on back with information on the album.  The inside gatefold is a little weak ... just the song listings.... but on this incredible package who would complain? 
The albums are a beautiful marbelized purple.  Standard GWW cartoon Bob in scarf  label. 
The songs are a near perfect studio quality direct from the master tapes. CBS has rarely released a package this nice on Dylan. Had the songs been listed correctly, and the source tapes listed; [both VERY minor details in this instance] this package would have been true perfection. 

The sources are all Empire Burlesque sessions: 
Late July 1984 Delta Studios, NY except: 
* Cherokee Studios, LA   Fall 1984 
** Cherokee Studios, LA   Jan. 1985 
*** The Record Plant, NY  Feb. 1985 
+ These songs are the original mix prior to 
Authur Baker's remixing
