Various Artists - "Sad Eyed Radio Of The Lowlands" - single-sided radio station LP, Mirrosonic CS-7225 (USA), 1970:


Mirrosonic CS-7225 (USA) - label scan by Hans Seegers (the other side is blank, and has a plain pink label)
R-0280 The Story Of East Orange, New Jersey - monologue from the "Minnesota Hotel Tape", recorded at Bonnie Beecher's apartment, Minneapolis, MN, 22 Dec 1961
This is reportedly based on a monologue called "State Of Arkansas" by Lee Hays of the Almanac Singers and the Weavers.

Hans Seegers says: "This is a vinyl "prototype" demonstration for a proposed progressive radio show made by RBC Radio networks (USA) in 1970. This vinyl LP was made in order to find financiers for the show. The "idea" of the show was to create a kind of "collage" of sounds, music, experiences  and as a matter of fact the introduction features mixes of the Jimi Hendrix Experience, sound effects, The Rolling Stones' 20,000 Light Years From Home , and a collage of The Beatles' Let It Be with the MC5's Kick Out The Jams! This demo LP also features  clips of songs by Joan Baez, The Who and The Band , interviews with Bill Graham and Alvin Lee, and a special short spotlight on BOB  DYLAN with the famous East Orange, New Jersey monologue (to my knowledge this has never been featured on a official record)  and a 27 seconds excerpt of Country Pie. Note also the nice title of the radio show as homage to Bob.  The record label has the text "PILOT PROGRAM - NOT FOR BROADCAST" and the disc comes in an audiodiscs, New York sleeve (this company specialized in acetates/test pressings)."

This item is mega rare, as only a few copies were ever produced! As far as I know the show was never actually broadcast.

Thanks to Hans Seegers for information and scans.

"Bob Dylan's Greatest Hits" - promo and commercial mono vinyl LP releases, CBS 37653 (Brazil), 1970:


CBS 37653 (Brazil) - front scan by Hans Seegers (promo and commercial copies)

This mono album has a has a fully laminated/pasted picture sleeve with a unique cover design with a photo by Daniel Kramer and also a unique tracklist including a rarity:

R-0007-2 Mixed Up Confusion - mono version, A-side of US Columbia single, 1962 - a stereo version is now on the 1997 release of Biograph (the 1985 release of Biograph had an alternate take)
The mono single version, which has the initial harmonica solo, appears to be the version of Mixed Up Confusion included here.

The other tracks are all the standard mono album versions.

"Wigwam"/"Copper Kettle" - 10" mono 45RPM acetate, Columbia Recording Studios, Nashville, TN, no number (USA), Jul 1970:

WigwamUSAcetateA.jpg (25392 bytes)
Wigwam US acetate - A-side scan by Hans Seegers
This acetate is very rare and unusual for two reasons: firstly it's 10" instead of 8" (the normal acetate size); and secondly because it's in mono. This was unusual because the promotional and commercial singles in the USA and Canada were all stereo, although mono versions were released in other countries. For stereo US and international singles with Wigwam/Copper Kettle see US & International 7" Singles & EPs 1970. For mono non-US singles with Wigwam/Copper Kettle see below. For the Self Portrait mono LP, see Mono Album Releases. WigwamUSAcetateB.jpg (26851 bytes)
Wigwam US acetate - B-side scan by Hans Seegers

R-1091 Wigwam - mono version of Self Portrait track

R-1092 Copper Kettle (Albert Frank Beddoe) - mono version of Self Portrait track

These tracks could be reductions from stereo from the mono LP. However, Mark Easter informs me that Columbia mixed tracks from stereo-only albums in mono specially for singles up to 1970, so these mono tracks could be exclusive mixes for the non-US 7" single releases.

Thanks to Hans Seegers for information and scans.

"All The Tired Horses" - mono 8" 45RPM acetate, Columbia NCO 101488/ZSP 154035 (USA), 19 Aug 1970/12 Apr 1971:
"NCO 101488" is a recording studio session number for Columbia Studios, Nashville, TN. (The song was recorded in New York on 5 Mar 1970 with session number "CO 101488", but dubbed and remixed in Nashville - information from Michael Krogsgaard.) "ZSP 154035" is the Columbia US pressing number.


Columbia ZSP 154035 (USA) - scan by Arie de Reus (dated "8-19-70")
R-0689 All The Tired Horses - mono version of track from Self Portrait (stereo version is not a rarity)

This and the 7" promo single below are the only appearances of this song in mono, as it was not released as a commercial single. These acetates are very rare. The mono version again could be a reduction from stereo, not true mono - for the Self Portrait mono LP, see Mono Album Releases. Mark Easter informs me that Columbia mixed tracks from stereo-only albums in mono specially for singles up to 1970, so this mono track could be an exclusive mix for a 7" single release.

HorsesMono.jpg (22407 bytes)
Columbia NCO 101488 (USA) - scan by Hans Seegers (dated "4/12/71")

Both these acetates have Columbia Recording Studios New York generic labels with handwritten text. The copy owned by Arie de Reus has the Columbia pressing number "ZSP 154035" and is dated "8-19-70" (19 Aug 1970). The copy owned by Hans Seegers has the Columbia Studios Nashville recording studio session number "NCO 101488" and is dated "4/12/71" (12 Apr 1971). Both have identical stickers with the same Staten Island, New York, address.

"All The Tired Horses" - 7" mono/stereo promo singles, Columbia AE 25 (USA), Aug 1970 (three variants):

TiredHorses7USPromoMono.jpg (21242 bytes)
Columbia AE 25 (USA), promo single mono side - scan by Martin Hoefermann (variant 1)

R-0689-2 All The Tired Horses - mono version of track from Self Portrait (stereo version is not a rarity)

These singles have the mono version (as above) on one side, and the regular album stereo version on the other. See above for a comment about whether these tracks are mono reductions from stereo or mono mixes exclusive to these 7" singles - for the Self Portrait mono LP, see Mono Album Releases.

The mono side has a white promo label with red lettering, the stereo side has a blue and yellow promo label. As can be seen, there are at least three different variants of this promo single, probably from different Columbia US pressing plants. The stereo side variants have the same text layout as the mono sides, e.g. with “BOB DYLAN” printed vertically, printed horizontally on one line, and printed horizontally on two lines as shown.

R-0071 New Morning - early copies of the album have Bob saying "OK, here we go" at start of title track, this was later deleted from the US album, but UK and some other worldwide releases retained it.
For more details of all vinyl releases with R-0071, see the New Morning page of International Album Releases.

Note the completely different Columbia US KC 30290 label style of the first copies compared to later copies! "NEW MORNING" is printed above "BOB DYLAN", one song listed above the centre hole, and the typeface and tracklist layout is different.

CD copies of New Morning don't include the intro - R-0071 appeared for the first time on CD on a six song promo CD released by Columbia Records to promote the publication of the first part of Bob's autobiography "Chronicles Volume One" by Simon & Schuster in the USA, see 2004.

The only cassette release that contained this rarity was from Spain in 1971.

Thanks to Gerd Rundel for information that the 2014 Mobile Fidelity US 180gm vinyl release, MFSL 1-425 does include R-0071.

Various Artists - "The Best Of The Newport Folk Festivals" - stereo vinyl LP releases, Vanguard VSD 8003 (West Germany/NL), early 1970s(?):

BestNFF.jpg (37710 bytes)
Vanguard VSD 8003 (West Germany) - front scan by Hans Seegers (all variants)

This album was made in West Germany by TELDEC (Telefunken Decca Schallplatten GmbH) of Hamburg. There is no release date anywhere on sleeve or record labels, nor are any of the songs dated. Some Internet sources date this LP as 1965, but the early 1970s is more likely. The sleeve is laminated on the front only on all copies except the one where the record has third variant labels. On the rear sleeve and the record labels both Ye Playboys And Playgirls and With God On Our Side are incorrectly credited as "traditional". Blowin' In The Wind is credited correctly. The rear sleeve of my copy has a Dutch record store sticker at top right. The record of my copy has the same labels as Dag Braathen's and stamped matrix numbers: Side 1 - VSD-8003-A, Side 2 - VSD-8003-B. "Manufactured in West Germany" is also stamped on each side of the record. Ronald Born has three copies of this album, the first is the same as mine and Dag Braathen's, but it has a partly removed price sticker from Inelco, a Belgian/Dutch record store chain of the time. The second copy has the same sleeve but different record labels as shown, and the third copy has a fully laminated sleeve with a third design of record labels, also as shown. The credit mistakes on Ye Playboys And Playgirls and With God On Our Side are repeated on the second and third variant labels.

Manuel García Jara also has a copy identical to mine bought in Amsterdam in 1971 with the INELCO Dutch/Belgian sticker, this time intact and on the rear sleeve. A second copy bought in Hamburg in 1970 has record labels with a fourth design - the record was still made in West Germany and has German circumference text on the labels (different from the three German copies), but has the logo of the Dutch copyright organisation "GEMA", not the German "BIEM". The sleeve was laminated on the front only and has different TELDEC text at bottom right on the rear.

R-0022-4 Blowin' In The Wind - recorded live at the Newport Folk Festival, Newport, RI, 26 Jul 1963, from the Vanguard album Evening Concerts At Newport Vol. 1, see 1964 (stereo version)

R-0020-2 Ye Playboys And Playgirls - with Pete Seeger, recorded live at the "Topical Songs" workshop on 28 Jul 1963 (stereo version), from the 1964 album Newport Broadsides (Topical Songs) (see 1964), now also on the Vanguard Sessions: Folk Duets CD (see 1998)
This song has always been thought to have been recorded at the afternoon workshop on 27 Jul 1963, but sources such as Glen Dundas and Derek Barker (in Appendix 1 to his 2008 Chrome Dreams book "The Songs He Didn't Write: Bob Dylan Under The Influence") now think it took place on the following day.

R-0023-3 We Shall Overcome (Zilphia Horton/Frank Hamilton/Guy Carawan/Pete Seeger) - Bob performs with the Freedom Singers and ensemble, recorded live at the Newport Folk Festival, Newport, RI, 26 Jul 1963, from the Vanguard album Evening Concerts At Newport Vol. 1, see 1964 (stereo version)

R-0311-2 With God On Our Side - with Joan Baez (stereo version), from the Vanguard album Newport Broadside (Topical Songs), see 1964
This performance is now known to have been recorded during the morning workshop on 27 Jul 1963 and is not the performance from Joan's set at the evening concert on 28 Jul 1963 (R-0021), and also not the performance from the afternoon workshop on 26 Jul 1963 as originally stated here. The real R-0021 was not actually released until 2005 - for video footage of this performance see both the 2005 US Columbia/Legacy DVD No Direction Home - Bob Dylan (see VHS & DVD 2000s Part 3) and the 2007 US Columbia/Legacy DVD The Other Side Of The Mirror: Bob Dylan Live At The Newport Folk Festival 1963-1965 (see VHS & DVD 2000s Part 4). The performance released in 1997 on the Joan Baez Live At Newport CD is from 1964 (R-0253, see 1997). The performance from the Newport Broadsides (Topical Songs) album (see 1964) has been renumbered R-0311. Thanks to Larry Crum and Bob Stacy for information.
