Carolyn Hester - "Carolyn Hester" - mono vinyl albums


Carolyn Hester - "Carolyn Hester" - mono vinyl album, Columbia CL 1796 (USA), May 1962:


Tradition Records TLP-1043 (USA mono, 1961) - front (my copy, no Dylan)
Bob plays harmonica on three tracks recorded Sep 1961 on this album produced by John Hammond - this is now known definitely to have been his first commercial recording session. Thanks to Tracy Zank for pointing out that this is in fact Carolyn's second self-titled album - the first (shown on left) was actually her second album and was released in 1961 on Tradition Records (TLP-1043) with a completely different tracklist including House Of The Risin' Sun and The Water Is Wide - Bob did not play on that album. Thanks to Tim Dunn for the album! The sleeve notes are by "Stacey Williams" (Robert Shelton), who wrote the sleeve notes for Bob's first album under the same pseudonym. For more details, see Honourable Mentions, which also lists Carolyn's first album, Scarlet Ribbons from 1957 on the Coral label, produced in her home state of Texas by Norman Petty, producer of Buddy Holly and the Crickets. These two albums are together on CD1 of a 2CD set, Carolyn Hester Introduces Bob Dylan, from Jasmine Music, released on 12 Apr 2013. CD2 contains Carolyn's 1962 Columbia album plus Bob's first album and what purports to be his first single. For more details, see Questionable Releases.
Jasmine Records JASCD 259 (UK mono/stereo, 2013) - front (my copy, includes Dylan)

The sleeve photograph of Carolyn on her first Columbia album is by Don Hunstein as is the photo of Bob on his first release Bob Dylan. Regular contributor to this site Bill Hester, who now lives in New Zealand, is Carolyn's cousin! The silver star sticker on the mono LP release with the words "A NEW STAR ON COLUMBIA RECORDS" is the same as the one that appears on first copies of Bob's first album Bob Dylan in 1962, see Mono Album Releases and International Albums (Regular).

Thanks to Jeff Gold for scans of two acetates of I'll Fly Away (R-0002M) and Swing And Turn Jubilee (R-0004M), both owned by John Hammond himself. As they were created before the release of the album, these are Bob's first recordings! Thanks to Ian Woodward for information about the acetate of Swing And Turn Jubilee being offered for sale. For more information, see here .

There are four variants of the US mono release:

First variant: The front sleeve has the silver star sticker. The rear sleeve has the number "3" at bottom right (this means the album was fabricated by Modern Album Finishing Co., probably at Terre Haute, IN). The record has the "6-eye" label design with the tracklist centred. Side 1 has all tracks below the centre hole with "Swing And Turn Jubilee" on two lines. Side 2 has two tracks above the centre hole.

Two US promo copies are shown, both with the first variant of the original "6 eye" Columbia record label. The first has "DEMONSTRATION RECORD NOT FOR SALE" printed in silver open text on the label, the second has a white demonstration label on the regular commercial label. Max from Italy also has a copy of the first variant with a red rubber stamp of "DEMONSTRATION NOT FOR SALE" on the rear sleeve and demonstration first variant 6-eye labels. This mono copy and Gerd Rundel's mono copy have the same generic Columbia US picture inner sleeve as the stereo copy below.

Second variant: The front sleeve is without the silver star sticker. The rear sleeve has "1" instead of "3" at bottom right (this also means the album was fabricated by Modern Album Finishing Co., probably at Terre Haute, IN). The record has the "6-eye" label design with the tracklist also centred. Side 1 has two tracks above the centre hole with "Swing And Turn Jubilee" in one line. Side 2 is identical to the first variant.

Third variant: The front sleeve is without the silver star sticker. The rear sleeve again has "1" printed at bottom right (again fabricated by Modern Album Finishing Co., probably at Terre Haute, IN). The record has the "6-eye" label design with the tracklist left-aligned and "CAROLYN HESTER" in much larger text than the previous variants. There are no tracks listed above the centre hole on either side.

Columbia CL 1796 (USA mono) - Side 1 scan by Manuel García Jara (first release variant 3B, commercial copy - same as variant 3A)

Thanks to Hans Seegers for information that the labels are from different Columbia pressing plants and all three date from May 1962. Gerd Rundel's third variant copy again has a "1" printed on the rear sleeve at the bottom right of the text box with track timings. The record has stamped matrix numbers: Side 1 - XLP-55910-1B, Side 2 - XLP-55911-1C. Manuel García Jara's third variant copy has an "S" printed on the rear sleeve at the bottom right, now above the text box. This means the sleeve was printed at Columbia's plant in Santa Maria, CA. The record labels are almost identical to those of Gerd Rundel's third variant copy except for the fact that the small black "CBS" under "COLUMBIA" is missing on Side 1. This must be a misprint, because the Side 2 labels are identical.

Fourth variant: This is a later release with the "2 eye" record label design, issued by Columbia from late 1962.
 

Columbia CL 1796 (USA mono) - front scan by Manuel García Jara (second release, same as first release variant 3A)

Columbia CL 1796 (USA mono) - front with price sticker, scan by Manuel García Jara (sealed copy)

Columbia CL 1796 (USA mono) - front with price sticker, scan by Manuel García Jara (sealed copy)

The fourth variant shown has the later plain red US Columbia "GUARANTEED HIGH FIDELITY" mono record label. The sleeve is the same as the third variant with a "1" on the rear at bottom right. Also shown is a sealed copy with an unusual Singer price sticker advertising two mono LPs for $5 or $2.98 each (stereo LPs at that time were dearer).

Thanks to Hans Seegers, Jeff Gold, Gerd Rundel, Manuel García Jara, Arie de Reus and Tim Norford for information and pictures.

Columbia CL 1796 (Canada mono) - detail of Side 1, scan by Manuel García Jara (1965 release)

Columbia CL 1796 (Canada mono) - Side 2 scan by Manuel García Jara (1965 release)

The sleeve is essentially the same as the US album, apart from two differences: it has the text "Litho in Canada" on the front, but the text "PRINTED IN USA" on the rear sleeve is obviously not present. There is a "1" on the 1962 rear sleeve at bottom right. The Canadian record labels are a variant of the first US "6 eye" design, with silver text and logos on a brown background. There is also a 1965 Canadian mono edition with record labels with the "2 eye" Columbia logo design. Apart from not having a "1" at bottom right on the rear, the 1965 sleeve is identical to the 1962 sleeve.

Thanks to Manuel García Jara and Arie de Reus for information and scans.


Carolyn Hester - "Carolyn Hester" - mono vinyl album, CBS BPG 62033 (UK), Jul 1962 (two variants):
Bob's first album released in Jul 1962 was CBS BPG 62022.


CBS BPG 62033 (UK mono) - front scan by Arie de Reus (both releases)

The UK promo copy has white labels dated "July" and the commercial copies have regular orange CBS labels. Arie de Reus' commercial copy was made by Philips and Manuel García Jara's commercial copy was made by CBS (probably pressed by Oriole, as CBS had no pressing plant in the UK at the time). Both sleeves appear the same, with the rear having three folded-over flaps. The Philips labels have "BPG 62033" to the right of the centre hole, while the CBS labels have "BPG 62033". Also, on the Philips-made record labels to the right of the centre hole underneath the music publisher credits the matrix number is shown as “BPG 62033 1L” or “BPG 62033 2L” above the text “"RECORDING FIRST PUBLISHED 1962”. On the CBS release the matrix numbers are “BPG 62033 A” or “BPG 62033 B” above the shorter text of “(P) 1962". (The “L” on the Philips label meant Mono, with “Y” for Stereo.)

CBS BPG 62033 (UK mono) - spine photocopy by Paul Shenton (copy made by CBS - "CL 1796" missing)


CBS BPG 62033 (UK mono) - spine photocopy by Paul Shenton (copy made by Philips - "CL 1796" on right)

Thanks to Paul Shenton for spotting that Dink's Song (Bob's version of which is now released on The Bootleg Series Vol. 7: No Direction Home, Sep 2005) on Side 1 is mistitled as "DRINK'S SONG" on both the Philips and CBS mono releases. This mistake was rectified by both companies on the stereo Side 1 labels. Thanks also to Paul for photocopies of the spines of both the Philips and CBS mono releases showing that the US catalogue number "CL 1796" is present on the spine of the Philips release and missing from the spine of the CBS release. Paul has two copies of the Philips release with the same spine text positioned slightly differently.

Thanks to Hans Seegers, Arie de Reus, Gerd Rundel, Manuel García Jara and Paul Shenton for information and pictures. Thanks to Jeff Gold of Record Mecca for the photos of John Hammond's personal 10" single-sided acetates of R-0002M and R-0004M (I assume these acetates are mono).

CBS SBPG 62033 (UK), Jul 1962 (Philips and CBS releases):


CBS SBPG 62033 (UK stereo) - front scan by Kenneth Robson (both releases)

This album has different front and rear sleeve designs from the US stereo release. Arie de Reus' commercial copy was made by Philips and Kenneth Robson's commercial copy was made by CBS (again probably pressed by Oriole). Both sleeves appear the same, with the rear having three folded-over flaps. The Philips labels have "SBPG 62033" to the right of the centre hole, while the CBS labels have "SBPG 62033". Also, on the Philips-made record labels to the right of the centre hole underneath the music publisher credits the matrix number is shown as “SBPG 62033 1Y” or “SBPG 62033 2Y” above the text “"RECORDING FIRST PUBLISHED 1962”. On the CBS release the matrix numbers are “SBPG 62033 A” or “SBPG 62033 B” above the shorter text of “(P) 1962". (The “Y” on the Philips label meant Stereo, with “L” for Mono.) Unlike on the mono Side 1 labels, Dink's Song is correctly titled on both Philips and CBS releases.

The album is now marketed as a joint Hester/Dylan album! It had already been released in Japan in 1966 with a more honest sleeve, see above. Hans Seegers' promo copy has black and white CBS/Sony promo labels, Arie de Reus' promo copy has commercial CBS/Sony orange and cream labels with a promo stamp. Arie suspects this album was never actually released commercially. Thanks to Wil Gielen for the correct date based on the label style and "SONP" catalogue number. Scan of the rear sleeve required!
