    I haven’t had a chance to read my copy of the hardcover yet (I have a young daughter so my reading time is minimal). But if the paperback has some more info about the various mixes, I’m going to order that and read it instead of the hardcover.

    I turned to my homemade “super deluxe” edition of Blonde on Blonde, which partly comprises excellent vinyl rips of the various stereo and mono mixes that have become available over the years. Therefore, my answer to your question is all of them!

    (They are not my rips. Alas, the only vinyl copy I own of the original US mono Blonde on Blonde is in pretty poor shape, and I lack the technology to rip it in any event.)

    Thank you for taking the time to reply to me and for undertaking what was obviously a labor of love.

    Daryl - would you know if the ebook version currently available is the revised edition? On the Apple Books app, it has the book being updated February 24, 2020. Thanks in advance.

    I tried to upgrade to the revised edition on Kindle but had no luck, for whatever that's worth.

    If it was updated February 24 of this year, then it should be the same version as the trade paperback edition.

    My paperback just arrived. I did a reread of the hardcover fairly recently after getting very into that “Nashville Cats” exhibit compilation. I thought I was going to read one chapter of the book, and ended up reading the whole thing again—and digging it all over again. I have the mono cd of Blonde on Blonde on outside, while I have some ribs slow cooking on the grill. Ready to read the paperback book—while bbq full—all over again tonight!
