Otherwise known as a rip-off .

Any of you shopping for the recently released Dylan SCAD hybrids should know about this. Best Buy is currently selling Blonde on Blonde for something like $26.99. I held off buying until I could check it out, and sure enough, BB has mispriced the title. Amazon's SRP is $19.98 while Music Direct is showing the regular price of $18.98 .

I printed up the Amazon page & took it to BB, but no soap, BB computer say $26.99, that's what BB will sell for. I think BB has confused the hybrid edition with this older (& subsequently re-priced) SACD edition.

I purchased from Amazon for $14.99.

One more editorial comment; if you have any appreciation for Bob Dylan's LP's, you must take a hybrid for a test drive, they are incredible.

I saw this too and saw Amazon's price to compare. buy.com has it for $13.98 if you assume from the release date, it's the new sacd.
