Kyodo

Sony Music Labels Inc. decided Friday to increase production of Bob Dylan CDs after receiving over 10,000 orders following the announcement that the U.S. singer-songwriter had won the 2016 Nobel Prize in literature.

The CD “Dylan The Best,” released in 2007, has been particularly popular among these orders, according to Sony Music Entertainment (Japan) Inc.,

“We would like to conduct a campaign to pass on Dylan’s music to the next generation,” an official of the company said.

The company will release a 36-disc box set in November featuring Dylan’s concerts in 1966, the official said.
