This page contains promotional and commercial releases of mono 7" singles and EPs with Dylan album tracks for 1965. Mono LPs have their own pages, see Mono Album Releases. All Bob's original mono albums from Bob Dylan to John Wesley Harding were released on CD as The Original Mono Recordings in Oct 2010. Because of the length of this page, the major 1965 Dylan mono 7" singles and EPs without rarities are now listed separately here:

For 1965 Dylan mono 7" singles and EPs with rarities see 1965. For illustrations of all the generic 7" single sleeves used by Bob's record companies from the 1960s onwards, see the 7" Single Sleeves page. (A single has much less value to a collector if it doesn't have its correct original sleeve.)

If you have any entries to add to the list or additions/corrections to existing entries, please let me know! Please note I cannot value your Dylan rarities - see the Mission page for reasons why. Contact the dealers on my Trading page for assistance!

Bob Dylan - "Masters Of War"/Joan Baez - "Farewell Angelina" - 10" mono acetate, Editions Paul Beuscher-Arpege (no catalogue number) (France), early 1965(?):
I'm basing the above date on that of Farewell Angelina, which was recorded by Bob at Columbia Studios, New York, on 13 Jan 1965, and released by Joan in Oct 1965. I have been so far unable to discover the date on which Joan recorded the song, since her recording sessions aren't documented on the Internet as Bob's are.


A-side scan from eBay
This acetate, which is genuine and not one of the Italian fakes plaguing eBay, was produced by the French music publishers Editions Paul Beuscher-Arpege. The blank acetate is from a French company called Pyral, part of Rhône-Poulenc Systemes, and has a Pyral generic sleeve with handwritten text. For further examples of Pyral sleeves, see 7" Singles Sleeves. The record plays at 33⅓ RPM.

Bob's performance of Masters Of War is not the Witmark demo version, but the album track from the mono release of The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan. The acetate is accompanied by a two page printed sheet with the French translation of the lyrics of Masters Of War as "Maitres de Guerre" by Hugues Aufray and Pierre Delanoë. Hugues' co-writer Pierre Delanoë also co-wrote with Gilbert Bécaud the original French version of Let It be Me, recorded by Bob in 1969 for Self Portrait and in 1981 during the Shot Of Love sessions and released as the B-side of 7" CBS singles with Heart of Mine as the A-side, see 1981.

Farewell Angelina [Joan Baez] Vanguard VSD 79200 (USA, 1965)

Farewell Angelina was the title track of the 1965 Joan Baez Vanguard album, and also appeared in a live version from 1983 on her Vanguard anthology Rare, Live & Classic, which has several performances with Bob, see 1993.

Thanks to Gerd Rundel for finding this on eBay.


Bob Dylan/Gordon Lightfoot - "Unnamed Acetate" - 10" mono acetate, Editions Paul Beuscher-Arpege (no catalogue number) (France), early 1965(?):
I'm assuming that this acetate is from the same time as the previous one - the latest Dylan recording is I'll Keep It With Mine from Jun 1964, but the earliest Gordon Lightfoot date is Nov 1964.


A-side scan from eBay
This acetate, which is also genuine and not one of the Italian fakes plaguing eBay, was again produced by the French music publishers Editions Paul Beuscher-Arpege. The blank acetate is again from a French company called Pyral, part of Rhône-Poulenc Systemes, and has a Pyral generic sleeve with handwritten text. For further examples of Pyral sleeves, see 7" Singles Sleeves. The record plays at 33⅓ RPM. There are three Dylan songs (all Witmark demos) and three Gordon Lightfoot Warner Bros demos.

The Dylan songs, all also former rarities, are:

R-0030 Long Time Gone - Witmark demo, Mar 1963, released on Warner Bros Nine Songs Publisher’s Sampler LP, 1967

R-0035 The Death Of Emmett Till - Witmark demo, Dec 1962, released on Warner Bros Nine Songs Publisher’s Sampler LP, 1967

R-0037 I'll Keep It With Mine - Witmark demo, Jun 1964, released on Warner Bros Nine Songs Publisher’s Sampler LP, 1967

All three of these Witmark demos were finally released on The Bootleg Series Vol. 9 - The Witmark Demos 1962-1964, Oct 2010

Gordon Lightfoot's contributions are acoustic demos of New Day; The Last Hand; Don't Be Sorry Weep Not For Me from the unreleased "Warner Brothers Publishing Demos", recorded between Nov 1964 through Apr 1966. None of these appear to be officially released.

Thanks to Gerd Rundel for finding this on eBay.


"Bob Dylan's 115th Dream" - 10" mono acetate, Columbia (USA), Jan 1965:


Label scan by Hans Seegers
As far as I know this track from Bringing It All Back Home on a single-sided acetate was never actually released as a single.

Thanks to Hans Seegers for information and scan.


"It's All Over Now, Baby Blue" - 10" mono acetate, Columbia (USA), Jan 1965:


Label scan found by Sonny Boy McFitzson
This is not the regular album track from Bringing It All Back Home, it's the widely bootlegged alternate take officially released in 2005 on The Bootleg Series Vol 7: No Direction Home.

"She Belongs To Me" - 7" mono acetate, Columbia (USA), Feb 1965:


Label scan by Hans Seegers
This 7" single-sided mono acetate is the B-side of the single below (Columbia 4-43242). The size is unusual, in that Columbia acetates were normally 10".

Thanks to Hans Seegers for information and scan.


"The Times They Are A-Changin'"/"Honey Just Allow Me Once More Chance" - 7" mono singles, CBS 201751 (UK/Scandinavia), Mar 1965; CBS SSC.567 (South Africa), 1965:

CBS 201751 (UK), Mar 1965, re-released 1974:

Times7UKMonoPromoA.jpg (29955 bytes)
CBS 201751 (UK) promo single - A-side scan by Hans Seegers (title incorrect)
The UK single was issued twice with orange CBS labels, and again in 1974 with orange/yellow CBS labels. The A-side title on the 1960s singles is wrongly shown as just "Times They Are A-Changin'". The first 1960s UK single has a push-out centre so it can be played at home or in a jukebox. Thanks to Michael Bällstav for scans of a copy of the first 1960s release with a solid centre instead of an open centre. This single has stamped matrix numbers: Side A - A 5054-2A-1, Side B - A 5055-2B-1. Rene Kejlskov Jørgensen's copy of the 1965 single also has stamped matrix numbers: Side A - A 5054-2A-1, Side B - A 5055-2B-1 and comes in the first CBS UK generic sleeve (see 7" Singles Sleeves).

CBS 201751 (UK, stereo) - A-side scan by Hans Seegers (shown for comparison)

The second 1960s release also has a push-out centre and has text in a different type face and "BOB DYLAN" printed vertically to the left of the centre hole.

The 1970s singles have solid centres. The A-side title of the 1970s singles is now correct. Hans Seegers' 1974 copy of the single has a double circular groove as if the circle was going to be punched out, but then wasn't. Ronald Born's 1974 copy has a single circular groove, but is otherwise identical. For two generic picture sleeves sold in the UK to hold these singles, see 7" Singles Sleeves.

This single was also issued with the same catalogue number later in the 1970s in stereo, see International 7" & 12" Singles 1975.

CBS 201751 (Scandinavia), Mar 1965:


CBS 201 751 (Sweden) - front scan by Hans Seegers (unfolded)

The Scandinavian 7” singles were all made at the PolyGram pressing plant in Oslo, Norway, while the sleeves were printed in the individual countries. The Danish sleeve is plain white on the reverse and is of the pocket type open at the top. The Norwegian sleeve is also of the pocket type, but this time the opening is on the left. Again the reverse is plain white with one folded flap. There were two slightly different releases. In contrast, the Swedish sleeve is a single sheet folded at the bottom with the same design on both sides once it's folded. The Norwegian-pressed records have orange CBS labels with push-out centres and with the A-side title misprinted as "Time They Are A-Changin'" as the Norwegian sleeve and the two original UK singles. The catalogue number is shown as CBS 201 751 on the record labels and the Swedish/Danish sleeves.

Thanks to Anton Wennbom for pointing out that his Swedish copy of CBS 201 751 has a slightly different record label than the Norwegian label shown above. The text is generally crisper than on the Norwegian label, and "45" is positioned slightly higher than on the Norwegian copy. Hans Seegers' Swedish copy is in fact the same. Hans believes there is no evidence that this is a second run, just that the copies for different countries were printed on different presses. All copies have push-out centres, so that they could be played at home or in a jukebox.

CBS SSC.567 (South Africa), 1965:
 


CBS SSC.567 (South Africa) - A-side scan by Hans Seegers (solid centre)

The South African single also has orange CBS labels and occurs with both solid and push-out centres.

I previously dated this EP as 1964, but Ian Woodward has magazines from May and Jun 1965 confirming the release date of CBS EP 6051 as Jun 1965. Thanks to Olav Langum for the text from the rear sleeve, which is: "As folk poet, Bob Dylan is without peer among his generation. His songs or "stories" as he calls them, have been sung and recorded by Odetta, Marlene Dietrich, Peter, Paul and Mary, The Kingston Trio, Ian and Sylvia, The Chad Mitchell Trio, Bobby Darin, Pete Seeger and Judy Collins. Joan Baez is preparing an album of all Bob Dylan material. Dylan is a deeply committed young man who conveys his concern for the world around him through unique and poetic imagery that makes explicit the human condition. Many of his songs such as "Don't Think Twice, It’s Alright" and "Blowin' in the Wind" have not only attained best-seller status as recordings, but have become classic "standards" of American folk music. As critic Robert Shelton has noted, "Dylan breaks all the rules of song writing except that of having something to say and saying it stunningly.".

Four rear sleeve variants and six label variants are shown here - there may be more.

Olav Langum has two records, one with songs published "1963" and "1964" by Blossom Music (the same as Rene Kejlskov Jørgensen's copy above, and the other with all songs published "1965". The first release record labels have the name "BOB DYLAN" in much smaller text below the song titles. "EXTENDED PLAY" is on one line instead of two. The record has a push-out centre. Henry V. Bell's copy has been only partially cut out. The rear sleeve does not have a bottom text line and does not have a cut-out on the left. Paul Shenton has a copy with the same front sleeve and record with push-out centre, but the rear sleeve has bottom text on the left only. This sleeve also does not have a rear cut-out on the left.

The second release has the same record labels, but this time with a sold centre. The rear sleeve now has a bottom text line, but still does not have a cut-out in the left. Rene Kejlskov Jørgensen's record has matrix numbers: Side 1 - EP6051-A-1, Side 2 - EP6051-B-1.

Dr. Hanns Peter Bushoff's record is most intriguing because it looks like a first or second release copy, with a push-out centre, but now has "BOB DYLAN" printed vertically in large type to the left of the centre hole. The publication dates are still "1963" on the A-side and "1963/1964" on the B-side. "EXTENDED PLAY" to the right of the centre hole is still on one line. This single comes in the third release sleeve with the cut-out at rear left.

On the third release record labels "BOB DYLAN" is again printed vertically in large type (Like A Rolling Stone in Jun 1965 also had this design of labels). "EXTENDED PLAY" to the right of the centre hole is now on two lines. The third release rear sleeve differs only from the second release rear sleeve in that it now has a cut-out on the left opening side. Manuel García Jara has two copies of this release - the A-side record labels both have the text "EXTENDED PLAY" to the right of the centre hole printed further to the right than on the A-side label of Olav's copy. Manuel's second copy has noticeably darker record labels and has an A-side label on the B-side (which plays correctly). This label has been altered by a previous owner and the correct song titles handwritten.

All the original releases of this single have textured labels, but Ronald Born has a copy with a solid centre that has smooth labels. Those smooth labels were not used before 1967, but the EP still has the same label design and matrix numbers as the textured version (and is housed in an identical sleeve).

Thanks to Keith Owen, Hans Seegers, Olav Langum, Rene Kejlskov Jørgensen, Henry V. Bell, Ronald Born, Manuel García Jara, Paul Shenton and Dr. Hanns Peter Bushoff for information and pictures.

This mono 7" EP occurs with four rear sleeve variants, all with the same front sleeve. There also four record label variants, although the record of Manuel García Jara's copy with the fourth variant rear sleeve has slightly different labels than those of Hans' copy with the fourth variant rear sleeve, see below.

Detailed differences are as follows, courtesy of Hans Seegers:

  1. detail of rear: CBS logo 19 x 19 mm, "CBS IS A TRADEMARK OF THE COLUMBIA ......": 107 mm; labels: small "Allan's" logo: 8x 7 mm, song titles and credits on four lines, "BOB DYLAN" above song titles

  2. detail of rear: CBS logo 19 x 19 mm, "CBS IS A TRADEMARK OF THE COLUMBIA ......": 109 mm; labels: medium "Allan's" logo: 12.5 x 11 mm, song titles and credits on four lines, "BOB DYLAN" below song titles

  3. detail of rear: CBS logo 22 x 22 mm, "CBS IS A TRADEMARK OF THE COLUMBIA ......": 116 mm; labels: medium "Allan's" logo: 12.5 x 11 mm, song titles and credits on three lines, "BOB DYLAN" below song titles

  4. detail of rear: CBS logo 22 x 22 mm, "CBS IS A TRADEMARK OF THE COLUMBIA ......": 119 mm; labels: large "Allan's" logo: 13.5 x 13.5 mm, song titles and credits on four lines "BOB DYLAN" below song titles (these labels are also printed in a noticeably lighter orange)

Manuel García Jara has a copy in the fourth variant sleeve where the record labels may be a sub-variant of the fourth variant. On label of side 1 the "5" of "45" (playing speed) is above the "i" of "Times..."; there is less space between the CBS logo and the catalogue number/Allan's logo/Matrix numbers; on the B-side label the "5" of "45" is above the "T" of "Times..."; the space between the CBS logo and the Allan's logo looks identical.

Thanks to Manfred Endtner for initial information and to Hans Seegers, Stuart Moore, Gerd Rundel and Manuel García Jara for further information and scans.

CBS 1781 (Sweden) - B-side scan by Hans Seegers (correctly shown as 1781-B)

CBS 1.781 (Norway), May 1965:


CBS 1.781 (Norway) - front scan by Hans Seegers

The Norwegian single is very rare, only about 300 copies were made. The A-side is misprinted as 1781-B but the B-side is correct as 1781-B.

Information from Hans Seegers: "Until 1973 all Scandinavian releases were pressed at the PolyGram pressing plant in Oslo, but up to 1968 the CBS companies in Norway, Denmark and Sweden printed their own picture sleeves. The labels of these Scandinavian singles are therefore completely identical, and all have 710 in the matrix number. Until 1968 all Norwegian releases came with cardboard inserts unless stated otherwise. Note that the Norwegian inserts feature the song titles of the A-side only."

CBS 201781 (UK), 4 Jun 1965:


CBS 201781 acetate (UK) - A-side scan by Arie de Reus

CBS 1462 (Italy) - front of sleeve, scan by Hans Seegers (all commercial releases)
This single occurs with four label variations and an extremely rare promo sleeve. 1965 promo copies have the commercial record inside a sleeve with red lettering on the front instead of the black used for the commercial releases.

The labels of all the 1965 releases have "BOB DYLAN" as the last line of horizontal text and "45" to the left of the centre hole. The first release has the track times to the left of the centre hole, the second and third releases have the track times on the line with the writer credit. On the second release the "45" to the left of the centre hole is 3mm wide, on the third release it is 4mm wide and in a different type face.
