Jeff Powell Tells the Story of The World's Most Expensive Record

Post by Hermann »

Interesting story from 2022.
Jeff Powell, a Memphis-based mastering engineer, was recommended by Gavin Lurssen for a project with T-Bone Burnett aimed at preserving the sound of fresh-cut lacquer records. Despite initial challenges, including noise issues, they successfully recorded Bob Dylan performing classic songs and auctioned off the unique record for $1.78 million at Christie's, marking it as the most expensive record ever sold.

Christie’s will auction Bob Dylan’s first new studio recording of “Blowin’ in the Wind” since 1962, from a special session with multi-Grammy winning producer T Bone Burnett, on the recently announced groundbreaking Ionic Original disc.
