This page contains promotional and commercial releases of mono 7" singles and EPs with Dylan album tracks for 1969. Although Bob's original mono albums from Bob Dylan to John Wesley Harding were released on CD as The Original Mono Recordings in Oct 2010, the mono release of Nashville Skyline was a reduction from stereo so was not included. It is currently no longer possible to buy mono versions of the tracks from that album. Because of the length of this page, the major Dylan mono single releases for 1969 are now here:

For 1969 Dylan mono 7" singles and EPs with rarities see 1969. 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.)

Mono LPs have their own pages, see Mono Album Releases.

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!

CBS BA 301258 (Greece) - A-side scan by Hans Seegers

Dylan releases were very rare during the Greek "colonels" regime, and this must have been regarded as non-political. CBS records were distributed by a company called "Music Box" in Athens. This single contained the album tracks from Nashville Skyline, and had orange CBS labels. There are two label variations: the first (not shown) has no space between "Produced by Bob Johnston" and the CBS logo, the second (shown) has 4mm space. For details of the same single released in mono in the USA and Canada in 1973 in the "Hall Of Fame" series, see International Mono 7" Singles 1970-76. For details of the same single released in stereo in the UK in 1976 in the "Hall Of Fame" series, see US & International 7" & 12" Singles & EPs 1974-76.

For the CBS Greece "Music Box" sleeve for this record, see 7" Single Sleeves.

This single is part of the CBS/Sony "Airplay" series and has a "747" sleeve (see 7" Single Sleeves) with two alternate rear sleeves and a folded insert. The rear of the insert lists Dylan albums with release dates up to 1971, so it's possible this is a reissue - the catalogue number dates the single as 1969. It was available in both promo (yellow label) and commercial (orange label) releases. The front, rear and inside of the insert of Hans Seegers' copy have price "¥400". Both the promo and the first commercial records have three-spoke push-out centres.

Even though this was a stereo series, these tracks are still in mono, as the stereo mix of the A-side circulating amongst Dylan collectors has never been officially released. The B-side is timed at 3:15 and used to be a rarity (R-0488). However, R-0488 is included on the mono release of Highway 61 Revisited as part of the 9CD set The Original Mono Recordings in Oct 2010, so is no longer a rarity. For a mono single with the same two tracks released by CBS in 1966 before Sony took over the company, see 1966.

Manuel has two copies with a modified price of "¥500": both have two small stickers on the front and rear of the folded insert hiding the original price, but not on the inside of the insert as shown. The first copy has the orange colour record with the three spoke push-out centre, identical to the one already shown, as well as the same "Pan-Am" sleeve. The second copy has identical stickers but now the record has an open centre and it has a different "Air-Play/Pan-Am" sleeve, not preciously shown on the 7" Single Sleeves page.

Thanks to Hans Seegers and Manuel García Jara for information.

Bob Dylan/The Beatles - "Issues No. 2" - 7" mono flexidisc EP, Ambassador Records (no catalogue number) (Australia/New Zealand), 1969:


Flexidisc scan by Hans Seegers
This single-sided mono flexidisc was made by Ambassador Records in Sydney, Australia for the Christian Life Curriculum of the Joint Board of Christian Education of Australia and New Zealand. It plays at 33⅓ RPM.

Bob's contribution was The Times They Are A-Changin' as the first track on the A-side. The second track on the EP was She's Leaving Home by The Beatles.

Thanks to Hans Seegers for information and scans.
