Lowest ever retail price for a Dylan album?

Thanks to John Service:

“Record labels are slashing prices to combat depressed demand, so there are some spectacular bargains around.

“But I wonder if I’ve just paid the lowest ever retail price for a Dylan album? I just bought Dylan’s Time Out Of Mind and “Love And Theft” in the attractively packaged new Sony X2 series at my local Tesco supermarket, for the princely sum of £4 – that’s £2 per album. Remarkable.

“I couldn’t resist replacing two (worn-out) great Leonard Cohen albums while I was at it – the first release, Songs of Leonard Cohen, and the third, Songs Of Love And Hate. Same deal - £4, or £2 per album.”
