Audio: Mono 7" Singles & EPs: 1969 - Lay, Lady, Lay

This page contains promotional and commercial releases of mono 7" singles and EPs with Lay, Lady, Lay 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 these album tracks. Because of the length of the 1969 Mono Singles page, the other major 1969 singles are now here:

Statesboro Blues: The Early Years 1927-1935 (Blind Willie McTell) - 2005 Document Records 3CD set with Rough Alley Blues
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.)

Incidentally, the well-known line from Lay, Lady, Lay - "lay across my big brass bed", comes from the 1931 single Rough Alley Blues by Blind Willie McTell with Ruth Willis (also known as Mary Willis), and is actually sung by Ruth Willis. Rough Alley Blues is included on Willie's 2005 Document Records 3CD set Statesboro Blues: The Early Years 1927-1935. Scan of the original 78 rpm 1931 single required!

Manuel García Jara says that Lay, Lady, Lay is the most widely released Bob Dylan single, although it reached only #7 in the US charts (Like A Rolling Stone and Rainy Day Women #12 & 35 both reached #2). By 1969 CBS was established in more countries or had distribution agreements with other companies in countries where it had no presence. This is why it's possible to find Lay, Lady, Lay released in countries where Dylan singles were scarce, and sometimes it is the only Dylan release in that country. Apart from the usual countries, you can find releases of this single in Jamaica, Venezuela, Chile, Bolivia, Israel, Angola, Singapore, India and Pakistan.

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!

Thanks to Manuel García Jara for information and scan.


"Lay, Lady, Lay"/"Peggy Day" - 7" promo and commercial mono singles, Columbia 4-44926 (USA/Canada), 1 Jul 1969:
The tracks could have been reductions from stereo, since no mono mix was actually created for Nashville Skyline. However, as per Mark Easter's comments for I Threw It All Away/Drifter's Escape (see here), these tracks could have been specially mixed in mono for the 7" single releases. For mono versions of Nashville Skyline, see Mono Album Releases.

Columbia 4-44926 (USA) - jukebox strips scan by Manuel García Jara

The US promo single was released in three variants - two mono singles with white labels and one stereo single with blue/yellow labels. For the stereo promo single, see International 7" Stereo Singles & EPs 1960s. The first variant has the LP title "NASHVILLE SKYLINE" on one line, while the second splits it over two lines. The commercial US single also has the same two variants. The Canadian single was released with one version only - the one with the album title on one line.

The matrix numbers would indicate that Lay, Lady, Lay was intended to be the B-side because its matrix number is JZSP 150045, while Peggy Day has matrix number JZSP 150044. However, I have no knowledge it was ever marketed like that.

Manuel García Jara has a copy of the first variant of the commercial single in a generic sleeve with a set of jukebox strips.

Columbia 4-44926 (Canada), 1 Jul 1969:


Columbia 4-44926 (Canada) - A-side scan by Hans Seegers

The Canadian single came in a generic Columbia Canada sleeve. The record has orange labels with "PRINTED IN CAN." at the bottom.

"Lay, Lady, Lay"/"Peggy Day" - 7" mono singles, Columbia 4-44926 (Jamaica), Jul 1969, re-released 1970:


Columbia 4-44926 (Jamaica) - A-side scan by Hans Seegers (1969 release)
The 1969 Columbia Jamaican single is in poor condition - however it is extremely rare and therefore still very valuable. It came without a picture sleeve. Despite the white label it is not a promo, but a commercial release. This is one of the very few Dylan singles released directly in Jamaica (rather than being imported from the USA). It was manufactured and distributed by Record Specialists Ltd., Kingston, Jamaica, whose name appears at the top underneath the Columbia logo. The single was reissued in 1970, this time with red Columbia labels and black text. The name of Record Specialists Ltd., Kingston, Jamaica, is now printed at the bottom of the labels.

Manuel García Jara has two copies: one copy with a push-out centre) comes in a generic red/white 7" sleeve of the Gramophone Company of India Ltd., part of EMI (bought by Universal in 2012), who manufactured and distributed CBS records in India. The second copy had had the push-out centre removed to play in a jukebox - it has a demo sticker on the A-side. It also comes in a distinctive black/turquoise Gramophone Company of India sleeve.

"Lay, Lady, Lay"/"Country Pie" - 7" mono test pressings, B. Feldman & Co, London (no catalogue numbers) (UK), 1969:


Label scan by Arie de Reus (single-sided)
These single-sided mono test pressings were made for publishing company B. Feldman & Co, 64 Dean Street, London, W1. This combination of tracks was not used for a commercial single in the UK. Lay, Lady, Lay was paired with Peggy Day as below and Country Pie was the B-side of Tonight I'll Be Staying Here With You.

"Lay, Lady, Lay"/"Peggy Day" - 7" mono promo and commercial singles, CBS 4434 (UK), 25 Aug 1969, re-released 1975, 1979:
Again, the tracks would have been reductions from stereo, since no mono mix was actually created for Nashville Skyline.

CBS 4434 (UK) - B-side scan by Peter Denzler (1969 commercial release, variant 3B - larger titles, push-out centre)

These UK singles did not have picture sleeves. There were three 1969 variants with plain orange labels.

The promo and first 1969 commercial releases have "U.S.A. Production" plus "MADE IN ENGLAND" and the CBS logo and UK trademark information along the bottom edge of the label. The text along bottom edge is missing from the second 1969 commercial release, which comes with both solid and push-out centres. The third 1969 UK commercial release has larger song titles and omits the words "U.S.A. Production" from under the song titles but restores the text along the bottom edge (the difference in the colours between the copies is probably due to scanner variations). It again comes with solid and push-out centres.

CBS 4434 (UK), 1975, 1979:


CBS 4434 (UK) - A-side scan by Hans Seegers (1975 commercial release, variant 1)

This single was reissued, still in mono, with orange/yellow CBS labels in 1975 and again in 1979. There are again several variants for each year. Manuel García Jara's copy of the second 1975 release with orange/yellow labels is different from Hans' copy because the text to the right of the centre hole is printed slightly higher, especially on the B-side. This can be seen in the detailed scans by looking at the circumference text.

(NL) - front scan by Sergio Mariano Romay
Tom Willems gives the Dutch release date as 1 Aug 1969. The front sleeve looks the same as the German front sleeve but has one minor difference - the "4434" catalogue number is above the CBS logo at top right. The sleeve opens at the top, as usual for Dutch and German singles of this period. The sleeve and record were made in Holland.

CBS 4434 (West Germany) - front scan by Hans Seegers (promo release)

The West German promo sleeve had a generic reverse side, see 7" Single Sleeves. The record inside the promo sleeve was the commercial version as shown.

The West German commercial front sleeve looks the same as the Dutch front sleeve but has one minor difference - the "4434" catalogue number is now below the CBS logo at top right.There are at least three different commercial rear sleeves! Two (which I've called variants 1A and 1B) have the same six CBS album illustrations including John Wesley Harding, but different text at bottom left. The first rear sleeve (variant 1A) has the following text in the lower left corner (translated): “Your record dealer will be happy to inform you about our extensive repertoire in popular, jazz and classical music”. The rear second sleeve (variant 1B) says (translated): “The record retailer will be happy to inform you about the international CBS star programme”. The third rear sleeve (variant 2) has six completely different album illustrations without a Dylan album, but has the same text at bottom left as variant 1A. All three have the same front sleeves, and except for the different record weights, the vinyl, the matrix numbers and the labels look the same. The record with the variant 1B rear sleeve is significantly heavier than the other two records!

For more information about the unique French index tabs or "languettes", see 1965. The second French release (my copy) has no languette and different record labels from Ronald Born's first release copy. The third release from Hans Seegers also has no languette, but it does have a 57mm cut-away strip on the rear edge. The record in this copy has brown injection "labels", which I'd date from late 1970s/early 1980s. For an injection label a thin coloured plastic ring-shaped layer is injected into the record itself, and the text/graphics cut out using a stamp so that the black vinyl underneath shows through, there is no paper label.

2 CBS logo on front is 20x20 mm, on the rear 19x19 mm, "gráficos reunidos-porto" in small letters on the rear, "Fabricado em Portugal" not printed on the rear. There are two sub-variants of this sleeve:

2A Overall length of "CBS é uma marca registrada da Columbia Broadcasting System, Inc., E.U.A." on rear sleeve is 83 mm.
2B Overall length of "CBS é uma marca registrada da Columbia Broadcasting System, Inc., E.U.A." on rear sleeve is 99 mm.

3 CBS logo on front and rear is 20x20 mm, "gráficos reunidos-porto" in small letters on the rear, "Fabricado em Portugal" not printed on the rear. (the front of Sleeve 3 is therefore the same as Sleeve 2).

Added to this, the record labels have two main variants, each of which has two sub-variants:

1 "(B. Dylan)" next to song titles, no date above "FACE 1/2":

1A No space between “prod. por Bob Johnston” and "<<Nashville Skyline>>"
1B “prod. por Bob Johnston” 2mm below "<<Nashville Skyline>>"

2 "(B. Dylan)" below song titles:

2A "(P) 1969" above "FACE 1/2".
2B No date above "FACE 1/2" as variants 1A and 1B. This exists in two variants, with and without a spelling mistake!

2B1- LP title incorrectly spelled "Nasheville Skyline" on A-side only (B-side was correct).
2B2 - LP title spelled correctly "Nashville Skyline" on A-side.

Thanks to Hans Seegers for (detailed!) information and scans.

"Lay, Lady, Lay"/"Peggy Day" - 7" mono singles, CBS 4434 (Israel), 1969:


CBS 4434 (Israel) - front with promo stamp, scan by Hans Seegers (first release)

This single was released with three sleeve and two label variants. The first sleeve exists in a promo version with a Hebrew language sticker on the front sleeve. It has two generic rear sleeve variants, each showing six different singles by other CBS artists. The second release sleeve has a differently printed front while the generic rear has six new other artist singles printed in purple. Both records have orange CBS labels, but the second label text style is completely different from the first. This was the second and last Dylan 7" single in Israel, the first was Like A Rolling Stone/Gates Of Eden, see Mono 7" Singles & EPs 1965.

There are three different label variants:

  1. Thicker, smaller "CBS" logo at top, normal text round circumference including "UNAUTHORIZED" (American spelling), last three lines of text to the right of the centre hole indented from left.
  2. Thinner, larger "CBS" logo at top, normal text round circumference including "UNAUTHORIZED" (American spelling), last three lines of text to the right of the centre hole indented from left.
  3. Thinner, larger "CBS" logo at top, bold text round circumference including "UNAUTHORISED" (British spelling), last three lines of text to the right of the centre hole centred (copy with solid centre bought in Hong Kong in 1970).

Manuel García Jara has a copy of the third variant single intended for jukebox use that has an open centre and comes in a generic lilac/white CBS sleeve without the insert.

The limited 3CD edition of The Bootleg Series Vol. 8 - Tell Tale Signs in 2008 included the book "The Collected Singles Sleeves". This single is listed there as "Made In Hong Kong" but apparently this is one of many mistakes in the book.

"Lay, Lady, Lay"/"I Threw It All Away" - 7" mono single, CBS BA 301258 (Greece), 1969:

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.

"Lay, Lady, Lay"/"Una Noche Más [One More Night]" - 7" mono singles, CBS/EMI Odeón SCMD-11028 (Chile), 1971:


CBS/EMI Odeón SCMD-11028 (Chile) - A-side
scan by Manuel García Jara (variant 1)
This mono 7" single with a unique B-side, One More Night instead of Peggy Day, was made in Chile by EMI Odeón for CBS Records. It comes in a generic EMI Odeón/CBS sleeve. The B-side of Hans-Juergen Zollerg's copy has a timing label stuck over it by a previous owner, but still plays One More Night. This copy comes in a different generic Odeón sleeve.

There were two variants - variant 1 has the matrix numbers "ALM 47308/1-2" at top right, with no track timings, variant 2 has the matrix numbers "ALM 47308/1-2" at top left and track timings at top right. The position of "(P) 1971" is also different as shown.

Thanks to Sergio Mariano Romay for finding this on eBay and to Manuel García Jara and Hans-Juergen Zollerg for further information and scans.

"Lay Lady Lay" - 7" mono EP, CBS EPC 978 (Mexico), 1969:
These Mexican EPs are now very rare!

MexLady69.jpg (21799 bytes)
CBS EPC 978 (Mexico) - front scan by Hans Seegers
This mono EP contains Lay, Lady, Lay; To Ramona; My Back Pages; It Ain't Me, Babe, from Nashville Skyline and Another Side Of Bob Dylan. Jim Siddy says all the tracks are faded out! Lay, Lady, Lay - 3:08 (album track is 3:17); To Ramona - 3:26 (album track is 3:52); My Back Pages - 2:13 (album track is 4:23); It Ain't Me, Babe - 2:12 (album track is 3:34). These are therefore rarities so the EP is also listed in 1969.

The sleeve is folded, not sealed, and comes with the record inside a clear poly bag. The record has orange CBS labels with text that looks as if it has been added with a rubber stamp, as it's become smudged, especially on the B-side.

Thanks to Hans Seegers for information and scans and confirming this EP is definitely mono. Thanks to Jim Siddy for further information.
