This page is part of a list of original releases by release date of international commercially-released regular stereo Dylan albums. They do not contain rarities or obscurities and are not eligible for the Searching For A Gem list. Nevertheless, their interest value or scarcity means they're worth listing here - as far as I know some are not included on any other Internet site. Promo releases of regular albums are now listed here and no longer in the former yearly Promo sections.

This page is incomplete - more international stereo releases of this album required. Because of the length of this page, Highway 61 Revisited CD releases are now here. For releases of this album in CBS/Columbia multi-packs, see International Album Releases (Regular) - Multi-Packs.

Original US stereo LP, Columbia CS 9189, 30 Aug 1965. For the mono release of this album, see Mono Album Releases.

The front photograph is again by Daniel Kramer. Thanks to Hervé from France for the poster from the "Bob Dylan by Jerry Schatzberg" exhibition at Banyuls-sur-Mer, France, 2011. This photo was taken in 1965 during the Highway 61 Revisited sessions.

For information on differences between the various releases of this album, see Roger Ford's "Electric Dylan" web-site (this link is temporarily unavailable).

This title is one of the fifteen Dylan albums released in Sep 2003 as a hybrid CD/SA-CD. This is playable both in stereo on an ordinary CD player and in enhanced stereo on an SA-CD player or a DVD player that also plays SA-CDs (Sony's higher range models all do this). Some titles were released in 5.1 surround sound, but not this one.

Like A Rolling Stone was produced by Tom Wilson before the rest of the Highway 61 Revisited sessions, which were produced by Bob Johnston. In his article “Tracking Dylan #17: The Like A Rolling Stone single” in “Isis” 182, Ian Woodward suggests that Like A Rolling Stone was not originally intended to be part of the Highway 61 Revisited album but a stand-alone single like Positively 4th Street and Can You Please Crawl Out Your Window? However, its chart success made it good commercial sense to include it! In his book "Like A Rolling Stone: Bob Dylan At The Crossroads" Greil Marcus also writes that pre-release copies of the album omitted Tom Wilson's name as producer of the song, but Bob Johnston ordered them to be withdrawn and Tom Wilson credited. Are copies of the album without the Tom Wilson credit in circulation?

The original American liner notes on the rear sleeve are the ones printed in "Writings and Drawings" (1974) and "Lyrics 1962-85" (1987). The only exception I can see is that "meaningful" at the end of the next-to-last paragraph is replaced by "meaningless" in the book versions (see illustration below). Thanks to Hans Seegers for information that rear sleeves with "meaningful" occur only in two stereo US releases: CS 9189 (1965), KCS 9189 (1975) and also in stereo Canadian releases. Since the 1977 release of KCS 9189, all US releases have had "meaningless". "Meaningful" also occurs on releases that were sourced from the USA, such as the Singapore and Philippines albums, and also on the New Zealand rear sleeve (although surprisingly not on the Australian rear sleeve).

Out-takes from this album have been officially released as follows:

Highway 61 Revisited (1965): original US and Canadian stereo pressings of the album, also all Japanese stereo LP pressings on CBS/Sony from 1968, contained an alternate take (take 4) of From A Buick Six with harmonica intro (R-0046, see 1965)
Take 4 has now been released on The Cutting Edge 1965-1966: The Bootleg Series Vol. 12 (6CD Deluxe Edition) CD2, track 19, and The Cutting Edge 1965-1966: The Bootleg Series Vol. 12 (18 CD Collector's Edition) CD6, track 4. Because the 6CD Deluxe Edition is widely available, R-0046 is no longer a rarity.

Thanks to Hanns Peter Bushoff for bringing to my attention what seems like an error by Greil Marcus in his book "Like A Rolling Stone: Bob Dylan At The Crossroads". On page 240 Greil writes: "Phantom Engineer. This frantic early version of the Highway 61 Revisited number "It Takes A Lot To Laugh, It Takes A Train To Cry" (one take was mistakenly included on some copies of the album) can be found on Dimestore Medicine (Joker bootleg), the 3CD Church With No Upstairs (Hanging Dog bootleg) and, from 25 July 1965, on Live in Newport 1965 (Document bootleg)." This is the alternate take released on The Bootleg Series Vols. 1-3 in 1991 (see below). I can find no evidence that an alternate take of It Takes A Lot To Laugh, It Takes A Train To Cry was ever included on any Highway 61 Revisited pressings, so I can only assume that Greil is confusing it with R-0046 (see 1965).

The title of the 1972 Steely Dan ABC Records album Can't Buy A Thrill is taken from the lyrics of It Takes A Lot To Laugh, It Takes A Train To Cry!

7" Singles (1965): Positively 4th Street; Can You Please Crawl Out Your Window? - early, slower, version released on a 7" single as Positively 4th Street by mistake and withdrawn very quickly (R-0044, see 1965, now released in stereo in Nov 2015 on the 6CD Deluxe Edition of The Cutting Edge 1965-1966: The Bootleg Series Vol. 12. Because R-0044 is in mono, it remains a rarity.

The Bootleg Series Vols. 1-3 (1991): Sitting On A Barbed Wire Fence; Like A Rolling Stone (alternate take); It Takes A Lot To Laugh, It Takes A Train To Cry (alternate take, wrongly listed by me until recently as R-0394, from Columbia acetates that surfaced in 1980)

Highway 61 Interactive CD-ROM (1995): several incomplete takes of Like A Rolling Stone from the recording sessions

The Bootleg Series Vol. 7 (2005): It Takes A Lot To Laugh, It Takes A Train To Cry (new alternate take, not the former R-0394); Highway 61 Revisited (alternate take); Tombstone Blues (alternate take); Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues (alternate take, previously unknown to collectors); Desolation Row (alternate take, already in circulation amongst collectors)

The 18CD set The Cutting Edge 1965-1966: The Bootleg Series Vol. 12 (Collector's Edition), released Nov 2015, contains remixed stereo version of every track recorded at the sessions for Highway 61 Revisited at Columbia Studios, New York, including the originally released album tracks as follows:

Like A Rolling Stone (CD4, track 4); Tombstone Blues (CD5, track 11); It Takes A Lot To Laugh, It Takes A Train To Cry (CD5, track 15); From A Buick Six (CD6, track 5); Ballad Of A Thin Man (CD7, track 19); Queen Jane Approximately (CD7, track 16); Highway 61 Revisited (CD6, track 29); Just Like Tom Thumb’s Blues (CD7, track 9); Desolation Row (CD8, track 11).


Vinyl and Tape Releases


"Highway 61 Revisited" - stereo vinyl LP releases, Columbia CS 9189 (USA), Aug 1965:

Columbia CS 9189 (USA) - front photo from eBay found by Christopher Casale (stickers and "360º Sound" logo)
The pictures of two sealed US LPs, courtesy of Christopher Casale and Gerd Rundel, show copies of the album still in the original shrink-wrap. Like the mono LP (see Mono Album Releases), they have a white sticker with violet text advertising Like A Rolling Stone - the single had been released before the album. They also have a red sticker with white text advertising that the package contains a free picture suitable for framing. The picture by "Lambert" is still in the shrink-wrap on the back of the album, covering most of the rear of the album sleeve on both copies. Gerd Rundel's copy also has a demo sticker on the front at bottom left. Thanks to Robert Kornovich for information from a book called "The Label: The Story of Columbia Records" by Gary Marmorstein (Thunder's Mouth Press, 2007) which says the picture was included by Columbia with the earliest copies of the album in one US region only.

Columbia CS 9189 (USA) - limited edition print, scan by Hans Seegers

The first release labels have the text "NONBREAKABLE", which is missing from the second release (which has the same sleeve as the first). Gerd Rundel's copy shown has matrix numbers: Side 1 - XSM111640-1A, Side 2 - XSM111641-1A as illustrated. William Henry Prince has a copy of the second release with matrix numbers: Side 1 - XSM111640-2F, Side 2 - XSM111641-1H. This copy was sent to a record store and has the text "DEMONSTRATION NOT FOR SALE" rubber stamped on the rear sleeve.Gerd Rundel's copy has a third white sticker with black text "FOR DEMONSTRATION USE ONLY NOT FOR SALE". The record of Gerd Rundel's first release copy has matrix numbers: Side 1 - XSM 110640-1A (stamped) S (hand-written), Side 2 - XSM 110641-1A (stamped). It comes in the sleeve shown with the "LIKE A ROLLING STONE" sticker and includes R-0046. Robert Johnson adds that his US copy with Side 1 matrix number XSM110640-1B also has the alternate take of From A Buick 6, as has Chip Ordway's US copy with Side 1 matrix number XSM110640-1C.

Jake Yahnker has a stereo copy on Columbia Records with the two eyes label. It has "NONBREAKABLE" under the "CS 9189" on the label as above. The unexpected matrix numbers are: Side 1- XSM110640 2B, Side 2 - XSM110640 1A (should be "641").

Columbia CS 9189 (USA) - detail of Side 1, scan by Zack Van Natta ("COLUMBIA MASTERWORKS" release)

Columbia CS 9189 (USA) - Side 2 scan by Zack Van Natta ("COLUMBIA MASTERWORKS" release)

Zack Van Natta has a copy of this album with "COLUMBIA MASTERWORKS" on the labels at bottom left. "NONBREAKABLE" is present on the labels. The rear sleeve is the variant with "meaningless" in the liner notes and there is a small "7" printed at bottom right.

Sergio Mariano Romay has a copy of the first release. “NONBREAKABLE” is present on the record labels and the rear sleeve is the variant with “meaningful” in the liner notes and there is a small “7”  printed at bottom right (this means the sleeve was printed by Modern Album Finishing Co., probably at Terre Haute, IN). This copy has stamped matrix numbers: Side 1 - XSM 110640-2A, Side 2 - XSM 110641-1F. Sergio also has a copy of the second release without "NONBREAKABLE" on the record labels. The rear sleeve is again the variant with "meaningless" in the liner notes. The matrix numbers of this copy are: Side 1 - XSM110640-3A, Side 2 - XSM110641-1J.


Columbia CS 9189 (USA) - detail of rear, photo by Michael Goodall
Michael Goodall has a copy of Columbia CS 9189 with a "MADE IN JAMAICA, W.I." sticker on the rear sleeve. It also has a small silver heart-shaped symbol at bottom right (this means it was printed at Pitman, NJ). The shrink wrap is heavier than for a US release and was probably put on after the sticker. The record labels are the second release without "NONBREAKABLE". This album was almost certainly made in the USA and exported to Jamaica, where the sticker was affixed.

Columbia CS 9189 (USA) - picture from eBay, fake record in white vinyl

Thanks to Geir Olsen for finding this copy of the Columbia US release on eBay with a white vinyl record. Unfortunately this is almost certainly counterfeit, as no copies with coloured vinyl records have ever been released officially by Columbia.

Tim Dunn has a stereo copy which seems to be a mix of the 1965 stereo and early 1970s versions:

  1. Catalogue number "CS 9189" on both the sleeve and record labels (not "KCS 9189")
  2. Record labels: as introduced in the early 1970s as shown for Gerd Rundel's copy below
  3. Sleeve exactly matches my copy with the alternate "From A Buick 6" (1st stereo release, 8/65)
  4. However: the liner notes have "meaningless"--not "meaningful"
  5. Matrix numbers: Side 1 - XSM110640-2F; Side 2 - XSM110641-1H.

Thanks to Hans Seegers, Gerd Rundel, Christopher Casale, Tim Dunn and Michael Goodall for information and scans.


"Highway 61 Revisited" - stereo vinyl LP re-releases, Columbia CS 9189 (USA), early 1970s, Columbia KCS 9189 (USA), mid 1970s:


Columbia CS 9189 (USA) - front scan by Sergio Mariano Romay (early 1970s release)

The early 1970s release has the same catalogue number but a new record label design with the Columbia logos in a ring round the circumference. The sleeve of Gerd Rundel's copy has an "A" on the rear at bottom right (this indicates the sleeve was made at the Columbia facility at Terre Haute, IN). The record of Gerd Rundel's copy shown has stamped matrix numbers: Side 1 - XSM110640-3C, Side 2 - XSM110641-1J.

Sergio Mariano Romay has a copy with a demonstration stamp on the rear sleeve, “FOR DEMONSTRATION USE ONLY. NOT FOR SALE”, stamped in violet ink, and a blocky "S" at top right (this indicates the sleeve was made at the Columbia facility at Santa Maria, CA). Both sleeves have "meaningless" in the liner notes. Sergio's record also has the 1970s style labels (without any demo indication) as illustrated and this copy has stamped matrix numbers: Side 1 - XSM 110640-3D, Side 2 - XSM 110641-1H. Grant Lloyd Willis has another  copy is from the early 1970s, with these new style record labels. There is a heart symbol on the rear sleeve, which means it was made at Columbia's plant at Pitman, NJ. It again has "meaningless" in the liner notes. The record of this copy has stamped matrix numbers: Side 1 - XSM 110640-3D (same as Sergio's copy), Side 2 - XSM 110641-1J (different from Sergio's copy).

Thanks to Gerd Rundel and Sergio Mariano Romay for information and scans.

"Highway 61 Revisited" - stereo vinyl LP re-release, Columbia PC 9189 (USA), late 1970s:


Columbia PC 9189 (USA) - front scan by Gerd Rundel (late 1970s release)

The sleeve of the late 1970s US release has "PC 9189" on the spine but just "9189" on the front sleeve while the rear sleeve still has "KCS 9189". There is an “S” to the left of the Columbia logo at top right (this means the sleeve was printed at the Columbia plant in Santa Maria, CA). The "STEREO"/arrows logo is missing from the front sleeve. The record labels have a ring of Columbia logos. The record has "PC 9189" on the labels, same as the sleeve spine, and the copy shown has stamped matrix numbers: Side 1 - XSM110640-3C, Side 2 - XSM110641-1H.

Columbia JC 9189 (USA) - front scan by Alan Tautfest (1980s release)

Betti Dockery's copy is a later pressing, with just "9189" on the front and rear sleeve. The "STEREO"/arrows logo is missing from the front sleeve. The record labels have the Columbia logo in a ring. Alan Tautfest has a copy of the same release, of which he says: "I purchased this copy new in 1988. When Columbia introduced the "Nice Price" series of mid-line priced LPs ($5.98) in 1979 they changed most of the early Dylan catalogue prefixes to PC xxxx. On your site you have some of the transitional copies that stickers with the PC xxxx catalogue number which were marked with gold promo stamps on the rear sleeves in 1980s and were given away as promotional copies. The list price of Highway 61 Revisited however did not change and had the JC prefix which was full list price ($7.98). The JC prefix is only on the spine and LP."

"Den" has a copy of this album with the same sleeve as the 2001 180gm release below with a bar code on the rear sleeve. It has similar labels to the 1980s release Columbia JC 9189, but with catalogue number of just "C 9189" on the labels. Gerd Rundel has a copy of the same album with handwritten matrix numbers: Side 1 - < B-4P > XSM 110640 G3A, Side 2 - XSM 110641 G2B. This copy has the inverted triangle on the Side 1 label that was introduced with Biograph in 1985.

This album reproduces the US front artwork from the 1980s Columbia JC 9189 above with just "9189" as the catalogue number on the front. The front sleeve has a white sticker with red text "LIMITED EDITION HIGH QUALITY 180GM VIRGIN VINYL FROM THE ANALOG MASTER".

The rear sleeve is the same design as previous US rear sleeves and has a bar code at top right. This bar code can end with "03" (Hans Seegers' copy) or "02" ("Den"'s copy). The record in the sleeve with the "02" bar code (which is not 180gm weight) has 1970s style labels with the Columbia logo in a ring (same as Gerd Rundel's C 9189 copy above) and catalogue number "C 9189"; the record in the sleeve with bar code "03" has the later plain red Columbia labels with catalogue number "PC 9189". This record can either be 180gm weight or regular weight, in which case the sleeve is without the front sticker. Gerd Rundel's copy comes without a front sticker and with later style record labels. The record of this copy has handwritten matrix numbers: Side 1 - <P AP> XSM-110640-G1A, Side 2 - <P AP> XSM-110641-G1A.

This limited edition high quality audio 2LP set plays at 45 RPM and comes in a unique gatefold sleeve.

Gerd Rundel's 2013 test pressing was made by RTI (Record Technology Inc.) for Mobile Fidelity Sound Labs. It does not have the alternate take of From A Buick 6 with a harmonica intro. Each record comes in a plain white cut-out sleeve. Sides 1 and 3 have generic RTI labels dated 19 July 2013, while Sides 2 and 4 have plain white labels. The test pressing records have handwritten matrix numbers: Side 1 - MFSL 2-422 A1 plus 22235.1 (3), KW @ MoFi opposite, Side 2 - MFSL 2-422 B1 plus 22235.2 (3), KW @ MoFi opposite, Side 3 - MFSL 2-422 C1 plus 22235.3 (3) (3), KW @ MoFi opposite, Side 4 - MFSL 2-422 D1 plus 22235.4 (3), KW @ MoFi opposite. In the matrix numbers, “KW @ MoFi” means that the records were mastered by Krieg Wunderlich of Mobile Fidelity.

Sergio Mariano Romay's 2014 commercial copy is no. 2257 of 5000. It comes in the gatefold sleeve with photos of Bob on the inside. The rear sleeve has the corrected "meaningless" text variation. The records have black Mobile Fidelity labels dated 2014 and come in the Mobile Fidelity inner sleeves shown. The record matrix numbers are the same as those of Gerd's test pressing.

There was also a 2015 hybrid SA-CD release.

"Highway 61 Revisited" - stereo 4-track tape cartridge, Columbia 14 10 0064 (USA), 1967:


Columbia 14 10 0064 (USA) - front of tape cartridge, scan by Hanns Peter Bushoff
This is a very rare item! 4-track was a short-lived continuous tape format, quickly superseded by 8-track. It has only two "programs" per tape instead of four as in 8-track (see below). The cartridge is in green plastic.

The running order is changed as follows, to make both programs of equal length. It Takes A Lot To Laugh, It Takes A Train To Cry and Desolation Row are omitted!

Program 1: Like A Rolling Stone; Tombstone Blues; Ballad Of A Thin Man

Program 2: Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues; Queen Jane Approximately; From A Buick 6; Highway 61 Revisited.

Thanks to Hanns Peter Bushoff for information and scans. For US 8-track releases, which also omit It Takes A Lot To Laugh, It Takes A Train To Cry, see below.

I bought the 1980s cassette in 1989 in Malibu, CA.

The insert has catalogue number "PCT 9189" but the cassette has catalogue number "CT 9189". The downward facing triangle first appeared on Side 1 of record labels and cassettes with Biograph in 1985. Gerd Rundel's 1980s copy has the same insert as mine with catalogue number "PCT 9189", blank on the reverse, but now has a smoked transparent grey cassette with white text, also with catalogue number "CT 9189". The cassette case has a record store sticker.

"Highway 61 Revisited" - stereo vinyl LP re-releases, Columbia CS 9189 (USA for export), 1965/early 1970s; Columbia KCS 9189 (USA for export), 1970s:

Columbia CS 9189 (USA), 1965 (second release exported to Scandinavia):


Columbia CS 9189 (USA for export) - front with "CBS" sticker, scan by Lars M. Banke (second 1965 release)
This copy bought in Denmark has shaped red "CBS" stickers on the front sleeve and the record labels. Unlike the 1970s copy below, no instances of "Columbia" have been erased on the rear sleeve, which is the variant with "meaningless" in the liner notes, and which also has a "7" printed after "New York, N.Y." on the bottom text line. (The "7" denotes that this was a reissue sleeve fabricated by Modern Album Finishing Co., probably at Terre Haute, IN.) The record labels are the second US release without "NONBREAKABLE" to the left of the centre hole. The record shown has stamped matrix numbers: Side 1 - XSM 11640-2A, Side 2 - XSM 110641-1G.

Columbia CS 8579 (USA for export) - Side 1 scan by Arie de Reus (copy bought in UK with same "CBS" stickers)

This export copy of the second US release was bought in New Zealand, although it is very similar to an export copy of Bob Dylan bought in the UK by Arie de Reus. It does not have the alternate take of From A Buick 6, and has the “meaningless” version of the rear sleeve. There is a small black printed “4” at rear bottom right (this means that the album sleeve was fabricated by Imperial Packing Co., Inc. of Indianapolis, IN). There are "CBS" stickers covering "Columbia" on the front and rear of the sleeve. The record labels have shaped red semi-circular stickers with three "CBS" logos and small "CBS" stickers on the bottom edge of each label covering "Columbia". The record of this copy has matrix numbers: Side 1 - XSM 110640 2C, Side 2 - XSM 110641 1D.

Columbia CS 9189 (USA), early 1970s (exported to Scandinavia):


Columbia CS 9189 (USA for export) - front scan by Lars M. Banke (early 1970s release)

This early 1970s copy bought in Denmark once had "CBS" stickers on the front and rear sleeve, but the front sticker has fallen off, leaving traces of glue. There is also a white sticker with the stereo catalogue number at top left of the front sleeve. "COLUMBIA" has been obscured with black marker pen on the bottom copyright line. There are also red ring-shaped stickers with black "CBS" logos on the labels hiding the Columbia logos. The record shown has stamped matrix numbers: Side 1 - XSM 11640-3C, Side 2 - XSM 110641-1H.

Thanks to Lars M. Banke for information and scans.

Columbia KCS 9189 (USA), mid 1970s (exported to Australia):


Columbia KCS 9189 (USA for export) - front photo by Christian Attfield (mid 1970s release)

This mid 1970s copy of H61R (KCS 9189 instead of CS 9189) has a white sticker across the top edge front and rear. “Columbia” has been erased with black marker pen once on the front sleeve and three times on the rear sleeve, once at top right and twice on the bottom centre text line. The ring of “Columbia” logos on the record labels has been overprinted in black, this time there are no stickers.

Columbia CS 9189 (Canada), 1960s releases:


Columbia CS 9189 (Canada) - front scan by Hans Seegers (1960s releases)

These releases have the then rarity, the alternate take of From A Buick Six with harmonica intro (R-0046, see 1965). The Canadian stereo album Columbia CS 9189 was released twice in the 1960s with a mono/stereo rear sleeve with a stereo stamp, first with the "STEREO"/"360° SOUND"/arrows logo on the record labels in black and secondly with the "STEREO"/"360° SOUND"/arrows logo on the record labels in white. The Canadian label with the STEREO/360° SOUND/arrows logo in black is much rarer and precedes the white text version. Both Canadian labels have the "NONBREAKABLE" text used on the first US label of this album. Both 1960s Canadian releases have "LITHO IN CANADA" on the front sleeve at bottom right. The same rear sleeve was used for the Canadian mono and stereo releases - the stereo release has an inked stamp at top left with text "PLAYABLE ON MONO EQUIPMENT. FOR BEST RESULTS USE STEREO NEEDLE". The record of Gerd Rundel's second release with the STEREO/360° SOUND/arrows logo in white on the labels has stamped matrix numbers: Side 1 - XSM110640-1A, Side 2 - XSM110641-1A. This record comes in the same sleeve as the first 1970s release below. Gerd also has a copy with mixed labels, first release on Side 1 with the black "STEREO"/"360° SOUND"/arrows logo, second release on Side 2 with the white "STEREO"/"360° SOUND"/arrows logo. This copy has the same "1A/1A" matrix numbers as the second release copy, and has the alternate take of From A Buick Six with harmonica intro.

Columbia CS 9189 (Canada) - Side 2 scan by Gerd Rundel (third 1960s release)

Anders Ydremark has a copy of the second 1960s Canadian release with a US sleeve ("LITHO IN CANADA" is missing from the front). The record of this copy has matrix numbers: Side 1 - XSM110640-1A, Side 2 - XSM110641-1A.

The third 1960s/early 1970s release comes in the same sleeve as the first 1970s release below. This release also has the then rarity, the alternate take of From A Buick Six with harmonica intro (R-0046, see 1965). This time "NONBREAKABLE" is missing on the record labels to the left of the centre hole. The record labels now have the song titles centred, with the writer credits on a separate line per song. This copy has stamped matrix numbers: Side 1 - XSM110640-1A, Side 2 - XSM110641-1A (the same as the US first pressing and the two 1960s Canadian pressings above).

Columbia CS 9189 (Canada), early 1970s release:


Columbia CS 9189 (Canada) - front scan by Gerd Rundel (early 1970s release)
This album was re-released in the 1970s with the same front sleeve, a rear sleeve with a printed "STEREO"/arrows logo and new style record labels with the Columbia logos in a ring round the circumference, manufactured by Columbia Records of Canada.

Columbia CS 9189 (Canada) - Side 2 scan by Gerd Rundel (early 1970s release)

This time "LITHO IN CANADA" is printed on the spine, not the front sleeve. The rear sleeve has the liner notes variation with "meaningful" rather than the later "meaningless". This release also has the then rarity, the alternate take of From A Buick Six with harmonica intro (R-0046, see 1965). The record labels again have the song titles centred, with the writer credits on a separate line per song. This copy has stamped matrix numbers: Side 1 - XSM110640-1A, Side 2 - XSM110641-1A (the same as the US first pressing and the three 1960s Canadian pressings above).

Columbia KCS 9189 (Canada), mid-1970s releases:


Columbia KCS 9189 (Canada) - front scan by Gerd Rundel (first mid-1970s release)
This album was re-released later in the 1970s as Columbia KCS 9189 with the new catalogue number on front and rear sleeves and the record labels. The record again has labels with the Columbia logos in a ring round the circumference, but again manufactured by Columbia Records of Canada. Columbia Records of Canada Ltd. was renamed CBS Records Canada Ltd. in late 1976, so this release is before then. The sleeve is the same as already listed for the first 1970s release except for the different catalogue number “KCS 9189” on the front, rear and spine. This release does not have the alternate take of From A Buick Six with harmonica intro. The record of the copy shown has handwritten matrix numbers: Side 1 - XSM-110640-1A-2-D, Side 2 - XSM-110641-1A-2-D.

This album was re-released later in the 1970s, but this time manufactured by CBS Records, Canada. Columbia Records of Canada Ltd. was renamed CBS Records Canada Ltd. in late 1976, so this release is after then. Apart from the new company name on the rear sleeve and record labels, this release is the same as the previous one.

The interesting item above right is said to be a picture disc edition of the Columbia Canada release KCS 9189. However, as far as I know, no Dylan picture discs have ever been released by Columbia worldwide. Thanks to Ed Ricardo for finding this item.

The second has a gold foil square sticker covering the Columbia logo on the front sleeve. On the rear sleeve it looks as if a similar sticker covering the Columbia logo at top right has been removed. The copyright text including "Columbia" at the bottom of the rear sleeve is untouched. On the record labels an unsuccessful attempt has been made to remove the ring-shaped stickers!

Tape Box "A", photo from eBay
This is a pair of original CBS ¼" stereo reel-to-reel tapes used to create LP masters in Europe, one for each side of the LP. The aluminium reels of BASF SM911 tape are unlabelled, and come in grey card boxes with white CBS identification sheets, marked only "A" and "B". Each tape has around 25 minutes of music, preceded by five test tones.

Thanks to Gerd Rundel for finding this item on eBay.

"Highway 61 Revisited" - stereo vinyl LP, CBS SBPG 62572 (UK), Sep 1965, CBS S 62572/CBS SBPG 62572 (UK), late 1970s to late 1980s; CBS 460953 1 (UK), late 1980s:
For the mono release of this album, see Mono Album Releases.

The British rear sleeve design is completely different from that of the US release with just one photo of Bob, different from any of the three photos on the US rear sleeve. The liner notes contain many minor differences from the American notes. For example, the characters "Savage Rose & Fixable" are here called "Savage Rose & Openly". For a complete list of these differences, see Rod MacBeath's article "Looking Up Dylan's Sleeves Part One" in "The Telegraph" issue 50, Summer 1994. I can only assume CBS UK were given an earlier version of Bob's notes. Even so, the notes do correctly have "meaningless" (see US sleeves above).

There were at least three different stereo releases of this album in the UK in the 1960s. Mick Robinson has a copy of the first release. The rear sleeve has "STEREO SBPG 62572" underneath the stereo/arrows logo at top left and the track timings at the bottom are not boxed. The record labels have "62575" above "(P) 1965" instead of "62572" - this must be a typesetting error. They also show the playing speed "33" instead of "33⅓" on the second release. The record has stamped matrix numbers: Side 1 - SBPG 62572 A//2-420 1:1, Side 2 - SBPG 62572 B//1-420 1:2. Gerd Rundel has a copy of the first release with "62572" correct on Side 2 only. The record has stamped matrix numbers: Side 1 - SBPG 62572 A//2 420 1 1  1, Side 2 - SBPG 62572 B//1 420 1 1  2. The front of the sleeve is laminated, the rear is matt and has three fold-over flaps. Gerd Rundel also has a copy with a variant sleeve where the catalogue number is incorrect on both first release record labels. The record of this copy has stamped matrix numbers: Side 1 - SBPG-62572-1A-1, Side 2 - SBPG-62572-1B-1.

Henry Bell's second release copy shown has a stereo sleeve with printed "STEREO"/arrows logo and the record has orange CBS labels and matrix numbers: Side 1 - SBPG 62572-1A-1, Side 2 - SBPG 62572 B2. The catalogue numbers on the record labels are correct with "62572" on both sides. The track timings at the bottom of the rear sleeve are in a box. Rene Kejlskov Jørgensen has a copy of the second stereo release record in a mono sleeve with a "STEREO" sticker on the rear sleeve. The CBS logo on the front sleeve is finer than that on Hans Seegers' mono sleeve. The record has matrix numbers: Side 1 - SBPG 62572 1A1, Side 2 - SBPG 62572 2B2. It has an orange CBS generic inner sleeve with details of recent CBS UK albums of artists like Marty Robbins, The Byrds, etc.

Sandra Bishop's 1960s copy has a third sleeve variant with the CBS logo and "Stereo" in a box front top left and rear top right. The musician credits at rear top right are not listed. The track timings at the bottom of the rear sleeve are no longer in a box and there is a new box with text about playing CBS stereo records. This sleeve was printed by Ernest J Day (listed here as "E. J. Day, London"). The record labels are the same as the second release labels above. Paul Shenton's third release copy is the same.

Robert Matthews has a copy bought in 1966 that doesn't fit any of the other ones illustrated here. The front sleeve has the CBS logo at top left with no writing, and a laminate that off the edge by 2mm. It has an original front sticker showing it was bought from "Boots Nottingham". The rear sleeve is the early version without the musician credits and has three folded-over flaps. The CBS logo at rear top right has the mono catalogue number underneath and the track listing is unboxed tracks. The record comes in an original orange advert inner sleeve. It has plain orange CBS labels with "33" as the playing speed and no stereo arrows. As shown above it has the wrong number on each side to the right of the centre hole - "62575" instead of "62572". The label is textured but the texturing ends part way in rather than close to the edge. The inner ring press overlaps the CBS logo. This copy has stamped matrix numbers: Side 1 - 62572-2A-1, Side 2 - 62572-2B-1.

Tom Willems has a fourth variant of the UK stereo release:

Front sleeve: identical to scan of Henry V. Bell (first and second release)

Rear sleeve: folded-over flaps, track list boxed as in the photo by Henry V. Bell, stereo arrow plus CBS logo with catalogue number underneath it as in the photo by Henry V. Bell, but: no credits for the producer or the musicians (like the scan by Gerd Rundel). The sleeve notes have the "meaningless" variant.

Record labels: orange labels, Side 1: "62572 A" (correct), Side 2: "62575 B" (incorrect), rest of labels identical to first release (scans by Gerd Rundel)

Tony Klein has a copy of the album which he bought in England somewhere between 1967-68 in a mono sleeve and with mono labels as listed in Mono Album Releases. However, both sides of the (stereo!) LP are actually from stereo matrices given as follows: Side 1 - SBPG-62572-1A-1, Side 2 - SBPG-62572-1B-1. More details of this album are on the mono album page. Éamonn Ó Catháin has a copy of what looks like the third release where the record has plain orange CBS labels. This copy has 1970s style matrix numbers: Side 1 - S 62572 A2, Side 2 - S 62572 B2. The record comes in a CBS "Inner Sleeve" issue 5 including details of Simon and Garfunkel's Greatest Hits, which dates from 1972.

CBS Sbpg 62572 (UK), mid 1970s/CBS S 62572 (UK), mid 1970s:


CBS Sbpg 62572/CBS S 62572 (UK) - front scan by Gerd Rundel (mid 1970s release)
David Sandilands says: "I have a UK variant version of the LP which on the label has the 1970s CBS logo but says "(P) 1965". Also there is no "LC|0149 box" and "MADE IN ENGLAND" is centred at the bottom of the label. The matrix numbers are odd in that side A has "S62572 A2", while side B has "SPBG 62572 B2". There are differences also on the rear sleeve in that there are no extra boxes that say "LC|0149" or "CB|271"." My guess is that this is from the mid-1970s and precedes Manuel's 1975(?) copy shown below. Gerd Rundel's first copy shown matches this description and the record has the same stamped matrix numbers (with an error on Side 2 of "SPBG" instead of the correct "SBPG"). The sleeve is the same as Sandra Bishop's copy except for the missing printer name. "BOB DYLAN" is above the album title on the record labels. "MADE IN ENGLAND" is at the bottom of the record labels. There are no track times on the labels.

Gerd Rundel's second copy shown comes in the same sleeve but has different record labels with catalogue number "S 62572". The text layout looks the same as that of Éamonn's 1975 Ireland release except for the missing “Record mfd. In Ireland” text. The album title is now above "BOB DYLAN"! "MADE IN ENGLAND" is still at the bottom of the record labels. The Side 2 label is slightly darker than the Side 1 label. The record of this copy has matrix numbers: Side 1 - CBS-S-62572-A-3 (handwritten), Side 2 - SBPG 62572 B2 (stamped).

Thanks to Paul Shenton for pointing out the discrepancies in track times between the sleeve and the record labels:

Like A Rolling Stone: Sleeve - 5:59, Side 1 - 6:06
Tombstone Blues: Sleeve - 5:53, Side 1 - 5:55
It Takes A Lot To Laugh, It Takes A Train To Cry: Sleeve - 3:25, Side 1 - 4:03
From A Buick Six: Sleeve - 3:06, Side 1 - 3:11
Ballad Of A Thin Man: Sleeve - 5:48, Side 1 - 5:55
Queen Jane Approximately: Sleeve - 4:57, Side 2 - 5:30
Highway 61 Revisited: Sleeve - 3:15, Side 2 - 3:20
Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues: Sleeve - 5:08, Side 2 - 5:26
Desolation Row: Sleeve - 11:18, Side 2 - 11:18 (the only one that is the same!)

From this point all record labels that have track times have these longer times.

CBS S 62572 (Ireland), mid 1970s:
 

CBS S 62572 (Ireland) - Side 1 photo by Éamonn Ó Catháin (1975 release)

Éamonn Ó Catháin's 1970s Irish copy of S 62572 has the UK sleeve. The record has orange/yellow CBS labels that state "Record mfd. in Ireland" as well as "MADE IN ENGLAND"! Unlike Manuel García Jara's copy the labels have "(P) 1965" to the right of the centre hole, although they still have the "S 62572" catalogue number and the stereo arrows.

CBS S 62572 (UK), around 1977 (three variants):

CBS S 62572 (UK) - detail of Side 1, scan by Gerd Rundel (third 1970s release, "MADE IN ENGLAND" still at bottom)

CBS S 62572 (UK) - Side 2 scan by Gerd Rundel (third 1970s release - with spelling mistake)

CBS S 62572 (UK) - detail of Side 2, scan by Gerd Rundel (third 1970s release - with spelling mistake "REVISTED")

CBS S 62572 (UK) - detail of Side 1, scan by Gerd Rundel (fifth 1970s release, now dated "(P) 1965", "LC|0149" capsule on left)


CBS S 62572 (UK) - Side 2 scan by Gerd Rundel (fifth 1970s release - without spelling mistake)

CBS S 62572 (UK) - detail of Side 2, scan by Gerd Rundel (fifth 1970s release - without spelling mistake)

Gerd Rundel believes these variants must be dated between his listed mid 1970s copies above and Manuel's late 1970s copy below. He dates them at approx. 1977. The third release record labels are still without "LC|0149" in a capsule. The third and fourth release Side 1 labels have “(P) 1975” to the right of the centre hole while the Side 2 labels have “(P) 1965”. (Manuel's late 1970s copy below has this also.) Highway 61 Revisited on the third and fourth release Side 2 record labels is misspelled as "Revisted".

The third release record comes in the same sleeve as already listed for the mid 1970s releases and the record of this copy has stamped matrix numbers: Side 1 - S 62572 A2, Side 2 - SPBG 62572 B2. The matrix number on Side 2 is wrongly stamped “SPBG” instead of the correct ”SBPG”. (This matrix error is also listed for David Sandiland's release and Gerd's first mid 1970s copy).

The fourth 1970s release copy actually comes in the same sleeve as the late 1970s/early 1980s records shown below. The orange/yellow CBS labels still have “MADE IN ENGLAND” at the bottom. The labels now have the "LC|0149" capsule which is present on Manuel and Gerd's copies below. Highway 61 Revisited on the Side 2 record label is again misspelled as "Revisted". The record of the copy shown has handwritten matrix numbers: Side 1 - CBS-S-62572-A4, Side 2 - CBS-S-62572-B4.

The fifth 1970s release copy again comes in the same sleeve as the late 1970s/early 1980s records shown below. The record labels have significant differences from the third and fourth release labels:

The record of the copy shown again has handwritten matrix numbers: Side 1 - CBS-S-62572-A4, Side 2 - CBS-S-62572-B4.

CBS S 62572 (UK), late 1970s, late 1970s/early 1980s:
 

CBS S 62572 (UK) - front scan by Manuel García Jara (late 1970s/early 1980s releases)
Manuel's copy with orange/yellow CBS record labels is dated "1975" on the Side 1 label (but "1965" on the Side 2 label), but probably dates from the late 1970s/early 1980s because of the sleeve design.

CBS S 62572 (UK) - detail of rear, scan by Manuel García Jara (late 1970s/early 1980s releases)

The front sleeve is the same design as Sandra Bishop's third 1960s design above. The rear sleeve is also the same design as Sandra Bishop's third 1960s design above, with the text box about playing CBS stereo records, but with the addition of codes "CB|271" boxed plus "60" in a circle at top right and "LC|0149" in a lozenge at bottom right. The album title is above "BOB DYLAN" on the record labels. "MADE IN ENGLAND" is now in the circumference text on the right and there is no text at the bottom of the labels. Highway 61 Revisited on the Side 2 record label is again misspelled as "Revisted". The record of the copy shown has matrix numbers: Side 1 - CBS-S-62572-A4, Side 2 - CBS-S-62572-B5.

CBS S bpg 62572 (UK), late 1970s/early 1980s (two releases):
 

CBS S bpg 62572 (UK) - Side 1 scan by Gerd Rundel (first late 1970s/early 1980s release)
In contrast, Gerd Rundel has two copies that come in the same sleeve as that of Manuel's late 1970s release, but still have the old version of the catalogue number "S bpg 62572" instead of just "S 62572", which may mean these labels came from a different printing company.

CBS S bpg 62572 (UK) - Side 2 scan by Gerd Rundel (second late 1970s/early 1980s release - without spelling mistake)

On both sets of labels the arrows under "Stereo" to the left of the centre hole are now missing. The album title is again above "BOB DYLAN". Highway 61 Revisited on the Side 2 record label is spelled correctly this time (unlike on the Side 2 labels before and after). The "LC|0149" capsule is at high top right. Instead of being dated 1975, the Side 1 labels are now dated 1965 again.

The first copy shown still has "MADE IN ENGLAND" at the bottom of the labels. The record of this first copy has handwritten matrix numbers: Side 1: CBS-S-62572-A3, Side 2: CBS-S-62572-B4.

The second copy shown has the CBS copyright at the bottom of the record labels instead of "MADE IN ENGLAND", which is now in the circumference text. The record of the second copy has handwritten matrix numbers: Side 1: CBS-S-62572-A4 (same as Manuel's copy), Side 2: CBS-62572-B5 (missing "S-" after "CBS-").

There may be a third variant which comes between these two with "MADE IN ENGLAND" in the circumference text, but the bottom of the labels blank.

CBS S 62572 (UK) - Side 1 scan by Gerd Rundel (first mid/late 1980s release)

CBS S 62572 (UK) - detail of Side 1, scan by Gerd Rundel (first mid/late 1980s release - CBS copyright info at bottom)

CBS S 62572 (UK) - detail of Side 1, scan by Gerd Rundel (first mid/late 1980s release - "MADE IN ENGLAND" in circumference text)

CBS S 62572 (UK) - Side 2 scan by Gerd Rundel (first mid/late 1980s release - with spelling mistake)

CBS S 62572 (UK) - detail of Side 2, scan by Gerd Rundel (first mid/late 1980s release - no text at bottom)

CBS S 62572 (UK) - detail of Side 2, scan by Gerd Rundel (first mid/late 1980s release - "MADE IN ENGLAND" and CBS copyright info in circumference text)

The release above is from the mid/late 1980s. Strangely, the catalogue number has not changed to "CBS 32xxx" as expected but remains as "CBS S 62572". The sleeve is the same as Manuel's late 1970s/early 1980s release. The record now has red CBS labels, but they are not the same as each other! The record label text layout looks the same as Manuel's orange/yellow late 1970s release (with the arrows below "STEREO" restored to the left of the centre hole), however the Side 1 record label has CBS copyright info at the bottom and "MADE IN ENGLAND" has moved to the circumference text on the right, while on the Side 2 record label the CBS copyright info has been moved to the circumference also (this is normally a later design). An earlier mistake has reappeared - Highway 61 Revisited on the Side 2 record label is misspelled as "Revisted". The Side 1 label has "(P) 1975" while the Side 2 label has "(P) 1965"! The record of the copy shown has handwritten matrix numbers: Side 1 - CBS 62572 A5, Side 2 - CBS 62572-B7.


CBS S 62572 (UK) - Side 1 scan by Gerd Rundel (third mid/late 1980s release)

CBS S 62572 (UK) - detail of Side 1, scan by Gerd Rundel (third mid/late 1980s release - no text at bottom)

CBS S 62572 (UK) - detail of Side 1, scan by Gerd Rundel (second mid/late 1980s release - "MADE IN ENGLAND" and CBS copyright info in circumference text)

CBS S 62572 (UK) - Side 2 scan by Gerd Rundel (second mid/late 1980s release - with spelling mistake)

CBS S 62572 (UK) - detail of Side 2, scan by Gerd Rundel (second mid/late 1980s release - CBS copyright info at bottom)

CBS S 62572 (UK) - detail of Side 2, scan by Gerd Rundel (second mid/late 1980s release - "MADE IN ENGLAND" in circumference text)

This is the mixed labels counterpart to the mid/late 1980s copy listed immediately above. The sleeve is the same as Manuel's late 1970s/early 1980s release. For this copy the Side 1 label is the later design and the Side 2 label is the earlier design. Side 1 of the first copy and Side 2 of the second copy are the same design, Side 1 of the second copy and Side 2 of the first copy are the same design, so copies must exist with the labels matched! Side 1 of the second copy has CBS copyright info in the circumference while the second Side 2 has CBS copyright info at the bottom. Highway 61 Revisited on the Side 2 record label is again misspelled as "Revisted", so both Side 2 labels have the same mistake. The Side 1 label again has "(P) 1975" while the Side 2 label has "(P) 1965"! The record of this copy has the same matrix numbers as the other listed mid/late 1980s copy.

CBS 460953 1/CBS S 62572 (UK), late 1980s:
 

CBS 460953 1/CBS S 62572 (UK) - front with stickers, scan by Sergio Mariano Romay (third mid/late 1980s release)

CBS 460953 1/CBS S 62572 (UK) - first front sticker scan by Sergio Mariano Romay (third mid/late 1980s release)

CBS 460953 1/CBS S 62572 (UK) - detail of rear, scan by Sergio Mariano Romay (third mid/late 1980s release)

CBS S 62572 (UK) - Side 1 scan by Sergio Mariano Romay (third mid/late 1980s release - same as above)

CBS S 62572 (UK) - Side 2 scan by Sergio Mariano Romay (third mid/late 1980s release - still with spelling mistake)

CBS S 62572 (UK) - detail of Side 2, scan by Sergio Mariano Romay (third mid/late 1980s release - no text at bottom)

CBS S 62572 (UK) - detail of Side 2, scan by Sergio Mariano Romay (third mid/late 1980s release - "MADE IN ENGLAND" and CBS copyright info in circumference text)

This release was transitional between the CBS 62572 releases and the later 1980s UK stereo vinyl release with a new catalogue number, CBS 460953 1 (as per the cassette releases CBS 460953 4 below). There are two stickers on the front: “NEW AT MID-PRICE” and “Nice Price CBS”, even though the album was never given a “CBS 32xxx” mid-price catalogue number. The sleeve still has "65272" on the front, the spine and at rear top right. However, at rear top left there is another sticker, with the new catalogue number "460953 1" in a box, a barcode and "PA" also boxed. At rear top right there are codes “CB|271” in a box, plus “60” in a circle, plus “LC|0149” in a lozenge at rear bottom right. My guess is that the rear sticker should actually been at rear top right hiding this info, the boxes on the sticker are right aligned. The record has red CBS labels with “MADE IN ENGLAND” and CBS copyright info in the circumference text (Side 1 is the same as the Side 1 label of Gerd Rundel's copy with mixed labels above). The Side 1 label again has "(P) 1975" while the Side 2 label has "(P) 1965"! The record of this copy has handwritten matrix numbers: Side 1 - CBS 62572 A5, Side 2 - CBS 62572 – B7 (the same matrix numbers as the other listed mid/late 1980s copies).

CBS 460953 1 (UK) - detail of rear, scan by Paul Shenton (fourth mid/late 1980s release)

This is the late 1980s UK stereo vinyl release with the new catalogue number, CBS 460953 1. This number is now on the spine and on the rear, this time not on a sticker. There is no front CBS logo or catalogue number. There are again two stickers on the front: “NEW AT MID-PRICE” and “Nice Price CBS”. The track times on the rear sleeve are now unboxed. The bottom of the rear sleeve has "CB|231" in a box, "53" in a circle, "L||0149" in a lozenge and the new CBS logo at bottom right. As with earlier releases, the track times on the record labels are longer than the track times on the rear sleeve. The record has red CBS labels with catalogue number 460953 1, but they have the style of the second mid/late 1980s release of CBS 62572, with "MADE IN ENGLAND" in the circumference text to the right of the centre hole and CBS copyright info at the bottom of the labels, not the supposedly later style with both "MADE IN ENGLAND" and CBS copyright info in the circumference text to the right of the centre hole. On Side 2 Highway 61 Revisited is now correct, but there is a new mistake on Side 1 - Ballad Of A Thin Man is now "BALLARD OF A THIN MAN"!

The record of this copy has handwritten matrix numbers: Side 1 - CBS 62572 A5  460953-1-A5, Side 2 - CBS 62572 – B7  460953-1-B7. The same matrix numbers as the other listed mid/late 1980s copies above have been scratched out and new matrix numbers with the new catalogue number added.

"Highway 61 Revisited" - stereo vinyl LP 180gm reissue, Simply Vinyl SVLP 173/Columbia 62572 1 (UK), 2000:

Columbia 62572 1/Simply Vinyl SVLP 173 (UK) - front with sticker, scan by Lars M. Banke (2000 180gm release)
There was a 2000 Columbia stereo 180gm vinyl release in association with Simply Vinyl. The rear sleeve is similar to the original 1966 design without musician credits and the bottom boxed text. It has the original catalogue number, 62572. The record has orange 1960s UK style Columbia labels, of which there are two variants. There are two record label variants, both in the same sleeve. One has "Columbia" to the left of the centre hole, the other doesn't. Both labels have the "LC|0162" EU Label Code which represents Columbia. The record of Manuel's copy shown has matrix numbers: Side 1 - 62572 1A, Side 2 - 62572 1B.

Thanks again to Paul Shenton for pointing out the discrepancies in track times between the sleeve and the record labels of this release and the sleeve and record labels of previous releases! On this release the sleeve and the record label track times for once agree, but they are all longer than those shown above:

Like A Rolling Stone: 6:13, previous releases 5:59, 6:06
Tombstone Blues: 6:00, previous releases 5:53, 5:55
It Takes A Lot To Laugh, It Takes A Train To Cry: 4:09, previous releases 3:25, 4:03
From A Buick Six: 3:19, previous releases 3:06, 3:11
Ballad Of A Thin Man: 5:58, previous releases 5:48, 5:55
Queen Jane Approximately: 5:31, previous releases 4:57, 5:30
Highway 61 Revisited: 3:30, previous releases 3:15, 2 3:20
Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues: 5:32, previous releases 5:08, 5:26
Desolation Row: Sleeve 11:22, previous releases 11:18

"Highway 61 Revisited" - stereo cassette releases, CBS 40-62572 (UK), early 1970s, re-released mid-1970s; CBS 460953 4 (UK), mid 1980s:
David Burgess has a Jun 1970 CBS UK leaflet advertising the release of Self Portrait that lists an 8-track stereo tape cartridge CBS 42-62572. Scans required!

CBS 40-62572 (UK), early 1970s, re-released mid-1970s:

 CBS 40-62572 (UK) - cassette Side 2 scan by Manuel García Jara (mid-1970s release)

The first UK CBS release has a folded insert with the sleeve notes on the inside. The cassette is light grey with orange CBS paper labels. The sides are reversed, so that Side 1 is the vinyl album Side 2 and vice-versa!

The second UK CBS cassette release can be dated to 1976 or earlier because Phonographic Performance Ltd. (PPL), the UK music licensing company and performance rights organisation, moved from Oxford Street in London to Ganton Street in 1977, and the inside of the cassette insert has the Oxford Street address. The insert is much shorter and just has the track listing on the inside - this was on the folded flap of the earlier release. The cassette is light grey with black text, there are no paper labels. The sides are still reversed as on the first release.

CBS 460953 4 (UK), mid 1980s (two variants):


CBS 460953 4 (UK) - outside of cassette insert, scan by Tom Willems (late 1980s releases)

The third UK CBS release can be dated to the late 1980s because it has the new CBS logo and new catalogue number, 460953 4. The inside of the cassette insert now has the PPL Ganton Street address. The cassette is again light grey with black text, there are no paper labels. The sides are now correct!

CBS 460953 4 (UK) - cassette Side 2 scan by Tom Willems (late 1980s releases)

There are two variants, both with the same outside insert and cassette. The difference is in the track timings (see the comparison of sleeve and record label times above). As far as I know the cassettes themselves play exactly the same.

Like A Rolling Stone: Variant 1 - 5:59, Variant 2 - 6:06
Tombstone Blues: Variant 1 - 5:53, Variant 2 - 5:55
It Takes A Lot To Laugh, It Takes A Train To Cry: Variant 1 - 3:25, Variant 2 - 4:03
From A Buick Six: Variant 1 - 3:06, Variant 2 - 3:11
Ballad Of A Thin Man: Variant 1 - 5:48, Variant 2 - 5:55
Queen Jane Approximately: Variant 1 - 4:57, Variant 2 - 5:30
Highway 61 Revisited: Variant 1 - 3:15, Variant 2 - 3:20
Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues: Variant 1 - 5:08, Variant 2 - 5:26
Desolation Row: Variant 1 - 11:18, Variant 2 - 11:18 (the only one that is the same!)

In all cases Variant 1 has the previous record label track timings, Variant 2 has the previous rear sleeve track timings!

CBS changed to Columbia in the UK in 1991, but I don't yet have a UK Columbia cassette release.

Thanks to Tom Willems, Manuel García Jara, Henry V. Bell and Paul Shenton for information and scans.


"Highway 61 Revisited" - stereo vinyl LP releases, CBS CS 9189 (Singapore), 1965:

CBS CS 9189 (Singapore), 1965 ("meaningful" sleeve, two variants):

CBS CS 9189 (Singapore) - Side 1 scan by Gerd Rundel ("Nonbreakable" missing)


CBS CS 9189 (Singapore) - detail of Side 1, scan by Gerd Rundel ("Nonbreakable" missing)

CBS CS 9189 (Singapore) - Side 2 scan by Gerd Rundel ("Nonbreakable" missing)

The first pair of these releases exported to Singapore use the US stereo sleeve without any stickers over the Columbia logos. Both records have the same US sleeve with "meaningful" in the liner notes and a small "7" printed at bottom right of the rear sleeve, which means the sleeve was fabricated by Modern Album Finishing Co., Terre Haute, IN. The pressings have the standard version of From A Buick Six, not the rarity. The records have red CBS labels with three logos and the same handwritten matrix numbers: Side 1 - XSM-110640, Side 2 -XSM-110641. The earlier record label has "Nonbreakable" to the left of the centre hole, on the later label it's missing. On this label the mono matrix numbers “XLP 110640/XLP 110641” are printed to the right of the centre hole. The later label has the correct matrix numbers: "XSM 110640/XSM 110641".

CBS CS 9189 (Singapore), 1965 ("meaningless" sleeve, two variants):


CBS CS 9189 (Singapore) - front with sticker, scan by Lars M. Banke (US stereo sleeve, first copy)

The second pair of these releases exported to Singapore use the US stereo sleeve with white "CBS" stickers over the Columbia logos on front and back, although the stickers are different - one set has black borders and the other does not. Both records have the same US sleeve, now with "meaningless" in the liner notes, and again a small "7" printed at bottom right of the rear sleeve, which means the sleeves were again fabricated by Modern Album Finishing Co., Terre Haute, IN. "Columbia" is obscured at bottom right of the rear sleeve on one copy only. The records have red CBS labels with three logos and the same handwritten matrix numbers as those of both copies above. The record labels of both records are the same and are the design without "Nonbreakable" to the left of the centre hole, as the second copy above.

CBS had a record pressing facility in Singapore from 1967, so records after that were sourced locally.

CBS CLS-5144 (Mexico) - front scan by Hans Seegers
This album was manufactured in Mexico in 1966. It has a new title in Spanish and a unique rear sleeve with country-specific sleeve notes in Spanish also. The Dylan sleeve notes are missing.

Gerd Rundel has a different 1967 Dutch release which comes in a fully laminated sleeve with two differences on rear from Rene's sleeve shown above: the "B" is missing to the left of the catalogue number and CBS logo at top right, and it has “NL PRINTED IN HOLLAND” printed vertically in the bottom right hand corner. The record labels are the same as Rene's 1967 copy, but the record has stamped UK matrix numbers: Side 1 - SBPG-62572-1A-1, Side 2 -SBPG-62572-1B-1. It's possible the record was pressed in the UK and then sent to Holland to be given Dutch labels and put in a Dutch sleeve. Simon Blokker has a copy in a sleeve which still has the "B" at rear top right, but also has “NL PRINTED IN HOLLAND” printed vertically in the bottom right hand corner. The record of this copy is the same as Rene's, with matrix numbers: Side 1 - S 62572-A, Side 2 - S 62572-B.

The record of the 1970s release now has orange/yellow CBS labels with catalogue number "62572" (no "S"). The rear sleeve has the vertical text “NL PRINTED IN HOLLAND” at bottom right but now has “Y” in a circle at top right. The record of the copy shown has handwritten matrix numbers: Side 1 - S 62572-A, Side 2 - S 62572-B.

CBS S 62572 (NL), 1980s:


CBS S 62572 (NL) - front scan by Gerd Rundel (1980s release)
The 1980s Dutch release again has "CBS S 62572" as the catalogue number on the sleeve. The rear sleeve has "60" in a circle and "CB|271" in a box at top right. The record now has red CBS labels with the catalogue number still just "62572".

Thanks to Paul Prince for photos of what appears to be a 1980s Dutch release on gold vinyl with red CBS labels. Thanks to Hans Seegers for information that this is an unofficial release that was not released by CBS Holland, but may have been privately pressed. Thanks to Gerd Rundel for scans of the regular 1980s release on black vinyl. The record of Gerd's copy has handwritten matrix numbers: Side 1 - S 62572-A, Side 2 - S 62572-B.

Patti Fultz has a picture disc with catalogue number CBS S62572 with the cover picture on Side 1 and the liner notes/rear photograph on Side 2. This comes in a clear plastic wallet and claims to have been manufactured in Canada, but is again definitely unofficial.

The rear sleeve has a barcode at top right plus “CB|231” in a capsule and “52” in a circle to the left of the CBS logo. "LC|0149" in a capsule is printed at rear bottom right. The record has red CBS labels with the new catalogue number "CBS 460953 1", and the copy shown has matrix numbers: Side 1 - 01-62572-2A-1 (stamped), Side 2 - S 62572-B (handwritten).

"Highway 61 Revisited" - stereo vinyl LP releases, CBS SBP 233279 (Australia), 1967, re-released 1969 and twice in 1970s:


CBS SBP 233279 (Australia) - front scan by Stuart Moore (1967 and first 1969 release)
The rear sleeve of this album is similar to the US rear sleeve. The 1967 sleeve is the same as the first 1969 release shown except that it has folded-over flaps. The 1960s records have solid orange CBS labels while the 1970s records have orange/yellow CBS labels. The 1967 record has the Allan's logo on the labels.

The record labels shown have round the circumference at the bottom the text "MADE IN AUSTRALIA BY A REGISTERED USER OF THE TRADE MARKS" without a CBS copyright. This is because up to 1977 all Australian records were manufactured by the Australian Record Company (Pty) Ltd. (A.R.C.) on behalf of CBS.

Each of the 1960s front sleeves has a different "Stereo" logo at centre top, although the record labels are very similar. The first rear sleeve doesn't have the text box at the bottom, the subsequent rear sleeves all have it.

None of the 1969 releases shown or the 1970s releases have the Allan's logo on the labels, although all the songs are still credited to Allan's. (Allan's were music publishers in Australia for Bob Dylan records from 1965 to 1969.) The record with the final 1960s/early 1970s labels comes in the same sleeve as the third 1969/1970s releases. The labels are different from the previous labels because "BOB DYLAN - HIGHWAY 61 REVISITED" is now on one line like the new design 1970s labels. Also "Allan's" under the song titles is no longer in brackets. The second 1970s record labels have longer copyright text along the bottom edge. A.R.C. changed its name to CBS Records Australia Limited on 17 Oct 1977, and after that date the longer bottom edge text includes the CBS copyright information. (Stuart Moore says that the label change may not have occurred till late 1978 or early 1979, Bob Dylan At Budokan from 1978 still does not have a CBS copyright nor does Masterpieces, Slow Train Coming from 1979 does have the CBS copyright.)

Thanks to Stuart Moore, Peter Lindberg and Hans Seegers for information and scans.

PC 279 was included as the only 1960s release in a 1989 CBS Australia boxed set called A Collection, see International Album Releases (Multi-Packs) 1980s. The cassette insert looks identical but the case is now transparent smoked grey with a unique "striped" appearance and white text printed directly on to the case, there are no paper labels.

These releases use a mono/stereo sleeve with both catalogue numbers printed on the rear and on the spine and the US rear sleeve design. The sleeves and records were made in New Zealand. Like the first US and Canadian releases, the rear sleeve has "meaningful" instead of "meaningless".

The first New Zealand pressing of this album comes in a mono/stereo sleeve with a silver foil stereo sticker on the front. The record labels are plain orange with the Allan's logo to the right of the centre hole. (Allan's were music publishers in Australia and New Zealand for Bob Dylan records between 1965 and 1970). The record of the copy shown has matrix numbers: Side 1 - MX146549  SBPG233279-1, Side 2 - MX146550-B  SBPG233279-2.

CBS SBP 473233 (New Zealand), early 1970s (two releases):


CBS SBP 473233 (New Zealand) - front with silver foil sticker, scan by Bill Hester (early 1970s release)

The front sleeve of Bill Hester's early 1970s copy again has a silver foil "STEREO" logo sticker. The early 1970s records have plain orange CBS labels in two variants without the Allan's logo from the 1967 release and now have "MADE IN NEW ZEALAND" instead of just "MADE IN N.Z.". The labels of Bill Hester's copy have more widely spaced song titles and text to the right of the centre hole than those of Lars M. Banke's copy, which does not have a "STEREO" sticker on the sleeve. Phoenix C thinks these albums date from around 1972.

"Highway 61 Revisited" - stereo vinyl LP releases, CBS CS 9189 (Philippines), 1969(?); CBS/Sony LP 1598/SOPL 225 (Philippines), 1974:

CBS CS 9189 (Philippines), 1969(?):


CBS CS 9189 (Philippines) - front scan by Arie de Reus
I'm dating the first release as the late 1960s because the first release of John Wesley Harding in 1968 had a different record label style, while this release has the same label style as the second release of John Wesley Harding as shown.

Like John Wesley Harding, this release was made in the Philippines by Mareco Inc. for CBS Records. It has a US stereo/mono sleeve with three folded-over flaps and the "meaningful" variant in the liner notes (see US releases above) with a couple of differences: the brown logo/catalogue number and album title on the US front sleeve are here a reddish brown, and on the rear sleeve the placement of the stereo and mono catalogue numbers at top right are different as shown with a CBS logo replacing the Columbia logo which appears on the front. The record has orange CBS labels and the copy shown has stamped matrix numbers: Side 1 - XSM 110640-2A, Side 2 - XSM 110641-1A.

CBS/Sony LP-1598/SOPL 225 (Philippines), 1974:


CBS/Sony LP-1598/SOPL 225 (Philippines) - front scan by Lars M. Banke
From 1970 to 1981 Dylan records were released in the Philippines by the Blackgold Records Corporation under licence from CBS/Sony, Japan, this release being based on the Japanese 1974 release SOPL 225, see below. The record has CBS/Sony labels and handwritten matrix numbers: Side 1 - LP 1598 A, Side 2 - LP 1598 B. The detailed scan has heightened contrast to show the circumference text more clearly.

"Highway 61 Revisited" - stereo vinyl LP, CBS/Sony SONP-50345 (Japan), 1970; CBS/Sony SOPL-225 (Japan), 1974; CBS/Sony 25AP 273 (Japan), 1976:

H61RJpnLP.jpg (35401 bytes)
CBS/Sony SONP-50345 (Japan, 1970) with side obi - front scan by Hans Seegers
Like the first US stereo pressing above, these albums contained a then rarity, R-0046, an alternate take of From A Buick 6 with a harmonica intro - see 1965 for more details. CBS/Sony SONP 50345 had a different rear sleeve from the US release, with Japanese text and without pictures. The regular rear sleeve formed the front of a 4-page folded insert. There was a red side obi with price ¥1, 800. The promo record had black/white CBS/Sony promo labels and the commercial record had orange/cream CBS/Sony labels. CBS/Sony SOPL-225 had a buff top obi with price ¥2,000 and an 8-page booklet. The copy shown has black/white CBS/Sony promo labels and part of the obi is cut away - this was a token to collect to get a free record.

There were two releases of this album in Japan in 1976 with catalogue number CBS/Sony 25AP 273, both at price ¥2,500. The first had a gold side obi and the second had a dark red/white side obi. Note the apparently anachronistic 1976 picture of Bob from Hard Rain on the second 1976 obi. In fact the rear of the obi was generic, and lists the 19 Dylan albums then available in Japan, with Hard Rain the latest.

Thanks to Hans Seegers and Wil Gielen for information and scans.

The record for the 1971 album was made for CBS by COFASA, Madrid. The sleeve was printed by Offset ALG, Madrid. It has sleeve notes in English with "meaningless" (see the US releases above) and copyright text/credits in Spanish. There is an inner sleeve with green text with song lyrics in English.

The 1971 record has orange CBS labels dated 1971 and the copy shown has matrix numbers: Side 1 - XSM-110640-1A, Side 2 - XSM-110641-1J. The song titles are in English in a set of continuous lines and on Side 1 From A Buick Six is mistitled "From A Buick". On Side 2 "Approximately" in Queen Jane Approximately is misspelled "Aproximately". The Side 1 matrix number is the same as the USA first pressing, which implies it may have the alternate take of From A Buick 6 (R-0046, see 1965). Confirmation required!

Gerd Rundel has a copy with alternate record labels as shown. Each song title is centrally aligned on its own line and also the text to the right of the centre hole has a different layout. The record has stamped matrix numbers: Side 1 - XSM 110640-3A, Side 2 - XSM 110641-1J. The sleeve is the same as Manuel's with the additional text "PRINTED IN SPAIN" (in English) at bottom right.

CBS S 62572 (Spain), 1974:


CBS S 62572 (Spain) - front scan by Manuel García Jara (1974 release)
The 1974 release has exactly the same sleeve as the first 1971 release (without "PRINTED IN SPAIN") and the same lyrics insert with green text. The 1974 record was made by Discos CBS S.A. and has orange/yellow CBS labels, still dated 1971. From A Buick Six on Side 1 is still mistitled "From A Buick". On Side 2 "Approximately" in Queen Jane Approximately is still misspelled "Aproximately". The copy shown has matrix numbers: Side 1 - S 62572 A, Side 2 - XSM-110641-1J. For the corresponding 1974 CBS Spain stereo cassette release, see below.

The labels are almost identical to those of the 1974 release, although the text of the word "Cara [Side]" to the left of the centre hole on each label is noticeably thinner.
