The “Ionic Original” re-recording Of Bob Dylan’s early ’60s classic folk song “Blowin’ In The Wind” was sold for $1,769,508 at Christie’s in London.
The unique recording was done during Dylan’s special session with his long-time collaborator and multi-Grammy winning producer T Bone Burnett using groundbreaking Ionic Original technology last year.
The “Ionic Original” disc of “Blowin’ in the Wind” by Burnett’s company NeoFidelity, Inc. — presented in a custom-made walnut and white oak cabinet, is the only physical copy of the new recording.
According to Burnett, the new technology surpasses the sonic excellence and depth for which analogue sound is renowned, while at the same time boasting the durability of a digital recording.
The “Ionic Original” format marks “the pinnacle of recorded sound,” he says. “It is future-proof. It is one of one,” he added.
It was originally estimated to sell for $600,000-$1 million during Thursday’s auction.
Music lovers were offered an opportunity to listen to the “Ionic Original” recording of “Blowin’ in the Wind” during the pre-sale exhibition at Christie’s in London.
