Because of the previous great length of this page I have created four sub-pages, which can be found here:

1972 "The Concert For Bangladesh" ] 1972 "Greatest Folksingers of the 'Sixties" ] 1972 Steve Goodman ] 1972 "A Tribute To Woody Guthrie" ]

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!

"George Jackson"/"Lay, Lady, Lay" - 7" single, CBS 15.054 (Venezuela), 1972:
For all international promo and commercial 1971/72 releases of the regular George Jackson 7" single see 1971.


"Soledad Brother" - the book by George Jackson (the Venezuelan edition that came with the 7" single)
R-0084-3 George Jackson - "Big Band" version - lyrics on bobdylan.com here

The B-side is the regular version of Lay, Lady, Lay from Nashville Skyline.

Hans Seegers informs me this is the rarest world-wide version of George Jackson! This single came in an orange "DISCOS CBS" sleeve with a folded black-and-white insert with a copy of "Soledad Brother", the book of prison letters by George Jackson (shown on left) which is believed to have inspired Bob to write the song. There are two small label variations in that "P-1972" is either present below the catalogue number on the left or missing. Manuel García Jara has a copy of the book and single bought in Peru in 1973 which came in a brown paper bag with the Milton Glaser illustration. Both the sleeve and the A-side of the record have stamps with "EXP" indicating an export. The single label variant is the one without the "(P)-1972". R-0084 is not identified as the "Big Band" version.

This track was also released on an exclusive 1972 Venezuelan compilation LP, see below.

"Grandes Exitos De Bob Dylan [Bob Dylan's Big Hits]" - stereo vinyl LP, CBS CS-10.118 (Venezuela), 1972 (twice), re-released late 1970s:

ExitosFront.jpg (27294 bytes)
CBS CS-10.118 (Venezuela) - front scan by Hans Seegers (all releases)
This is a rare album with a quirky song selection released only in Venezuela! The front sleeve uses the same black and white version of the 1967 Milton Glaser poster as the George Jackson single above. There were two releases in 1972, of which the first is the rarest, Both use the same sleeve, but the record labels are noticeably different, both in the album title and the text left and right of the centre hole. The album title on the first release record labels is just Grandes Exitos [Big Hits], on the second release record labels it's Los Mas Grandes Exitos De Bob Dylan [Bob Dylan's Greatest Hits] while it's referred to in the rear sleeve text as Los Mas Grandes Exitos De Bob Dylan Vol. I [Bob Dylan's Greatest Hits Vol. I]. Sergio Mariano Romay has a copy of the second release with a front price sticker of 28.00 Bolivars ($6.51 at the official "non-essential" goods exchange rate of 4.3 Bolivars to the US dollar).

This track was also released on an exclusive 1972 Venezuelan 7" single, see above.
R-0084 is not identified as the "Big Band" version. For another exclusive Venezuelan compilation with this performance, see 1976. For all international promo and commercial 1971/72 releases of the regular George Jackson 7" single see 1971.

Tracklisting:

Side 1: Wigwam; Like A Rolling Stone; Blowin' In The Wind; Positively 4th Street; Rainy Day Women #12 & 35; Lay, Lady, Lay

Side 2: George Jackson - "Big Band" version; The Mighty Quinn (Quinn The Eskimo); It Ain't Me, Babe; If Not For You; Mr. Tambourine Man; Just Like A Woman.

The rear sleeve drawing had previously been used on a UK EP in 1966. The rear sleeve text reads: "Besides offering new recordingsGreatest Hits of Bob Dylan Vol. I confirms that Bob Dylan is the most important composer of his generation. This retrospective collection is essential for anyone seriously interested in music and culture of our times."

The record of Manuel García Jara's first release copy has matrix numbers: Side 1 - CBS-10.118-A 13-IV-72, Side 2 - CBS-10.118-B 13-IV-72 (dated 13 Apr 1972). The record of both Gerd Rundel's and Sergio Mariano Romay's second release copies have handwritten matrix numbers: Side 1 - CBS-10.118-A, Side 2 - CBS-10.118-B.

The late 1970s release comes in the same sleeve, but the record has orange/yellow "sunburst" CBS labels. The album title on the record labels is again Los Mas Grandes Exitos De Bob Dylan [Bob Dylan's Greatest Hits].

Thanks to Hans Seegers, Gerd Rundel, Manuel García Jara, Lars M. Banke and Sergio Mariano Romay for information and scans.

This performance also appeared on a 1995 Westwood One radio station broadcast about Dylan and the Beatles, see 1995.

Simon & Garfunkel - "The Sounds Of Silence"/Bob Dylan - "Lay, Lady, Lay" - 7" promo stereo single, CBS SSC 632 (Angola), 1972:


CBS SSC 632 (Angola) - front of sleeve, scan by Manuel García Jara (promo and commercial copies)

R-0475-2 Lay, Lady, Lay - 3:09 edit of album version (3:18)
This edit also appeared on a CBS Mexico 7" EP, see 1969.

This incredibly rare single, probably the rarest Bob Dylan single of all, was made for CBS by Valentin de Carvalho CI-SARL of Luanda, Angola, and dates from when Angola was a Portuguese colony. It is the only known Dylan release in this country, although there were some releases with Dylan covers. This is because there was only one pressing plant in the country and almost all records were imported from Portugal. Only Portuguese citizens in Angola could afford to buy records at that time! The record has regular orange CBS labels with two logos. Unusually the labels are each in four segments pasted on to the vinyl. There is a red stamp on the rear sleeve from a record shop in Lobito, a town in Angola. Apparently only 20-30 copies were pressed and sent to radio stations, but a few copies such as this one reached record shops. Both tracks are in very poor quality - Lay, Lady, Lay fades out at 3:09 after Bob stops singing (the album version is 3:18). The single originally came with a typewritten insert in Portuguese promoting Simon & Garfunkel's Greatest Hits album and Bob Dylan's Greatest Hits Vol. 2 and mentioning that both tracks were produced by Bob Johnston (who isn't mentioned on the record labels or sleeve).

Thanks to Manuel García Jara for information and scans. Thanks to Hans-Juergen Zollerg for photos of the Angolan commercial single with the same catalogue number that has two Simon & Garfunkel songs but no Dylan. The front of the single sleeve is the same as that shown except that it has a light blue CBS logo. The CBS logos on both rear sleeves are black.

Various Artists - "Broadside Ballads Vol. 6: Broadside Reunion" - mono vinyl LP releases, Folkways F-05315/FR 5315 (USA), released 1972, recordings 1962/63; CD releases: Folkways FH-5315 (USA), mid-2000s:

 
Folkways F-05315 (USA) - front scan by Kenneth Robson

Bob appears again as "Blind Boy Grunt" on this retrospective album with four previously unreleased performances from the 1960s. I previously had it listed as being released in Nov 1971, but both the sleeve and the record labels date the album as 1972. For the first Broadside album with Bob as "Blind Boy Grunt", see 1963. In addition to the blue and orange sleeves shown (a coloured slick pasted on to the front of a black card sleeve, also covering the spine and part of the back), Alan Hoaksey reports his copy of Broadside Reunion has a green sleeve - the explanation for the sleeve colour variations is given in the note to Broadside Ballads Vol. 1, see 1963.

Levine for information that iTunes US in Oct 2012 are offering a remastered version of the song from a company called Bacci Bros Records with a short intro, 15 secs shorter than the Broadside Reunion version, for more details see Online Performances (Other).

This Broadside album is now available by mail order from Smithsonian Folkways All tracks are reportedly remastered and a vast improvement over the original album. However, they can only supply CD-R copies of the original albums. Thanks to Jack Guerreiro and Andrew Wellman for scans of the CD-R releases. The CD-Rs were originally housed in a Folkways slipcase as shown (the same for each title), and came with photocopies of the original artwork. Now they come in generic gatefold thick card sleeves with the original artwork on a sticker on the front and overlapping half the back. Thanks to Andrew Wellman for scans of the latest release.

Thanks to Jean-Pol Heirnaux for finding a Smithsonian cassette version on eBay. It comes in a black plastic case with the booklet folded in four inside. Jean-Pol also informs me that much of the Broadside/Folkways music is now downloadable from the Smithsonian Folkways site. However, none of the tracks by Blind Boy Grunt are included. Thanks to David Plentus for information that the entire album is now available for download for US residents only from Amazon.com (you can download just the Dylan tracks if you prefer). Thanks also to Herman Rechberger for scans of his vinyl copy.

Juan says this was originally intended to be an EP given away with the first Spanish release of Blonde On Blonde, with Positively 4th Street and Can You Please Crawl Out Your Window (never before released in Spain) and the live B-side version of Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues from Liverpool, 1966 (R-0054, see below). However the EP was never issued, although a few sleeveless copies left the factory and circulate amongst collectors (Gerd Rundel has a copy of the withdrawn EP in a generic CBS Spain sleeve, see 7" Singles Sleeves). Instead a single was released with the same catalogue number (perhaps by mistake) and a unique but misleading fold-out picture sleeve, with one song per side. The title of the single is misleading, because The Band do not play on Positively 4th Street. "CBS 9131" appears only on the front sleeve at top right, the replacement single does not have a catalogue number! Both the EP and single were manufactured by COFASA, Madrid, on behalf of Discos CBS.

The contents of the EP were:

A-side: Positively 4th Street; Can You Please Crawl Out Your Window?

The labels are dated 1971, but it did not appear until 1972. It has stamped matrix numbers: Side 1 - 850 9131*A*1, Side 2 - 850 9131*B*1. I mistakenly reported the second track as R-0513, the stereo version of this track, but Juan says the mono version was used by mistake so that both right and left stereo channels are the same. Because the single is badly pressed there is distortion between the tracks which was mistaken for stereo by early reporters. "Can You Please Crawl Out Your Window? was pressed with a stereo matrix made from a mono magnetic tape (that is to say, it had two sound ways, but with identical information in both), and if there was occasionally a certain stereo feel it was due to an uneven reading of the needles." The performance available on Masterpieces (1978) and Biograph (1985, remastered CD reissue 1997) and the 2000 Essential Bob Dylan/Ultimate Bob Dylan compilations is from the original single and still in mono! This means the only occurrence of the stereo mix before 2015 was a Columbia US stereo acetate, R-0513, see 1965. The single version released in Nov 2015 on the 18CD Collector's Edition of The Cutting Edge 1965-1966: The Bootleg Series Vol. 12 (CD10, track 12) is in stereo and has been remixed from the original tapes. R-0513 will still remain a rarity, because of the limited availability of this massive set.

B-side: Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues (live)

The title is misprinted as "Just Like A Thom's Thumb Blues"! This was intended to be Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues live at Liverpool with the Hawks, May 1966, B-side of mono I Want You US 7" single, (R-0054 from the B-side of the mono 7" Columbia/CBS singles of I Want You, see 1966). This live version, never released on a regular Columbia album, is also on the Japanese promo LP Mr. D's Collection #1 (see 1974), the Japanese promo EP Mr. D's Collection #2 (see 1976), the 1978 Australian set Masterpieces (see 1978), the Japanese Mr. D's Collection #3 promo CD (see 1993), the Japanese Dylan Ga Rock promo 2CD set (see 1993 and 2010) and the Capitol/EMI boxed set The Band: A Musical History (see 2005), and is also on the Columbia/Legacy USA/Europe 36CD set The 1966 Live Recordings, Nov 2016. All versions are still in mono as originally recorded.
Fred Muller says the version on the Columbia/Legacy USA/Europe 36CD set The 1966 Live Recordings is not only longer at 6:51, but slightly clipped at the beginning when compared with the versions on Masterpieces and The Band: A Musical History. This is confirmed by Peter Coulthard and Roger Ford, who say that the first two bars of the performance on the 1966 mono single and subsequent releases of R-0054 up to 2016 were spliced in from the performance of Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues from the ABC Theatre, Belfast, Northern Ireland, 6 May 1966! This means that track 8 on CD14 of The 1966 Live Recordings is not the same as R-0054, and now has a new R-number, R-1906.

Sadly, because of a second error, the B-side actually contains the studio version of It Takes A Lot To Laugh, It Takes A Train To Cry from Highway 61 Revisited!

Gerd Rundel's copy of the EP has stamped matrix numbers: Side A - 850 9131*A*1, Side B - 850 9131*B*1.

The contents of the single were:

A-side: Positively 4th Street; B-side: Can You Please Crawl Out Your Window? (mispressed mono version as above)

R-0022-4 Blowin' In The Wind - recorded live by "Bob Dylan (and Friends)" at the Newport Folk Festival, Newport, RI, 26 Jul 1963, originally released on the 1964 Vanguard album The Newport Folk Festival - 1963: The Evening Concerts Vol. 1, see 1964 (stereo version)
Rob Carson tells me this is a different mix from the 1964 version - confirmation? If so, it could be the same as R-0818 released in 2007 on the 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. This makes Bob's vocals more prominent than on the 1964 release.

Soyo Records 0001 (NL, 1983) - recording without Bob

The song is abbreviated (1:17 playing time only) but the complete lyrics of the Ginsberg poem are included in the magazine. The poem is about the plight of refugees fleeing the Bangladesh War from Jessore in what was then East Pakistan towards India in 1971 - the same catastrophe that inspired George Harrison's "Concert for Bangladesh", see above and here. There are a total of 17 such tracks on the flexi-disc. Alternate takes of September On Jessore Road are available in full on the Allen Ginsberg 1994 Rhino Word Beat boxed set Holy Soul Jelly Roll: Poems And Songs 1949-1993 (R-0235, see 1994) and Allen Ginsberg's Omnivore Records 3CD boxed set The Last Word On "First Blues" (R-1650, see 2016). There is also a version recorded for Allen Ginsberg's 1983 album September On Jessore Road, but that version is without Bob.

Thanks to Hans Seegers for his diligence in seeking out this magazine and for scans, and to Larry Crum for clarifying that the 1994 and 2016 releases are different takes.

Part One:

WGPart1.jpg (20444 bytes)
Columbia KC 31171 (USA) - scan by Peter Gilmer

Bob's songs were recorded live with The Band, Carnegie Hall, New York, 20 Jan 1968 (afternoon and evening shows) at a concert to benefit the US Committee to Combat Huntington's Disease. The third concert was at the Hollywood Bowl on 12 Sep 1970 when Bob was not present. The original record release was on two separate LPs on different record labels - R-0064 to R-0067 were on Part One (Columbia), R-0068 was on Part Two (Warner Bros).

The order of the songs on the LPs is not chronological with Carnegie Hall 1968 on Part One and Hollywood Bowl 1970 on Part Two - the three shows have been edited into a "complete performance" so that performances from each appear on each album. Even though Bob is not credited on the Part Two sleeve, presumably for contractual reasons, best information (such as Glen Dundas' "Tangled Up In Tapes"/"Tangled") is that he does appear on the ensemble songs.

Part One contains:

R-0064 I Ain't Got No Home (Woody Guthrie) - Bob and The Band, afternoon show (Side 1, track 6)
This performance also appears on the Japanese Mr. D's Collection #3 promo CD (see 1993) and the Capitol/EMI boxed set The Band: A Musical History (see 2005).

R-0065 Dear Mrs. Roosevelt (Woody Guthrie) - Bob and The Band, afternoon show (Side 2, track 3)

R-0066 The Grand Coulee Dam (Woody Guthrie) - Bob and The Band, afternoon show (Side 2, track 6)
This track also appears on two 1972 Columbia compilations (listed below on this page) and is now also available on the 2001 Japanese live compilation Bob Dylan Live 1961-2000: Thirty Nine Years Of Great Concert Performances, see 2001.

R-0067 This Train Is Bound For Glory (adapted Woody Guthrie) - Bob and The Band with Arlo Guthrie and ensemble, afernoon show (Side 1, track 1)
I misreported this song before - it is truncated on both the original album and the 1989 single CD release, with only the Arlo Guthrie introduction to the song remaining (Side 1 track 1). Bob and The Band are accompanying Arlo but the actual song with their vocal contributions is omitted! Glen Dundas in "Tangled Up In Tapes" (later published as just "Tangled") attributes this to the evening show, but Dean Chambers has tapes of both shows and says it is from the afternoon show. This is supported by Michael Krogsgaard in "Master of the Tracks", who attributes R-0064 - R-0067 to the afternoon show.

Thanks to Harold Lepidus for information in Dec 2013 that Bill Pagel of Boblinks fame is working with Nora Guthrie, daughter of Woody, and Bear Family Records to release all three of the 1968 and 1970 shows of the Tribute To Woody Guthrie in full. Bob appeared with The Band at Carnegie Hall, New York, Jan 1968, for three songs, I Ain't Got No Home, Dear Mrs. Roosevelt and The Grand Coulee Dam, and also participated in the ensemble finale songs This Land Is Your Land from the matinee and This Train Is Bound For Glory from the evening show. There was also a show at the Hollywood Bowl, Los Angeles, CA, in 1970, but Bob did not participate. Highlights from these three shows were released in 1972 on Columbia (Part One with the three afternoon show performances from Bob and The Band but only a truncated This Train Is Bound For Glory) and Warner Bros (Part Two with This Land Is Your Land), with songs from the three shows spread over both releases out of performance order. As these releases are unsatisfactory and omit Bob and The Band's 1968 evening performances a new complete release of the shows is well overdue.

Part Two:

Warner Bros BS 2586
(USA) - front scan by David Burgess

Part Two contains:

R-0068 This Land Is Your Land (Woody Guthrie) - Odetta and Arlo Guthrie with ensemble including Bob and The Band, afternoon show
Bob is present on guitar throughout the song and sings verse 6. However, the released performance does not include verse 6! This may be because the contractual arrangement between Columbia and Warner Bros did not allow Bob to appear explicitly on the Part Two album.

The 2017 Bear Family 3CD boxed set contains two books in a card slipcase, one with pockets for the discs on the inside rear. The 1968 and 1970 concerts are now ordered chronologically, so that all three of Bob's songs with The Band from the 1968 New York afternoon concert are together on CD1, with the ensemble This Train Is Bound For Glory (which is still sadly truncated, this time at 1:16) at the start of CD1 and the ensemble This Land Is Your Land at the end of CD1 (also still not in full). The 1970 Hollywood Bowl concert is on both CD2 and CD3, with material not released on the original 1972 releases including new 1970 ensemble versions without Bob of This Train Is Bound For Glory and This Land Is Your Land. There is no new 1968 material, and the extra 1970 material does not include any Dylan contributions, as he was not present.

R-0073 Sammy's Song (David Bromberg) - Bob plays harmonica, recorded Columbia Studios, New York, 5 Oct 1971
R-0073 is track 5 on Side 2.

Bob was not credited directly on the sleeve of this album, except in the "Thanks" line (see rear detail scan), but the liner notes to the 1998 Columbia Legacy compilation CD The Player: A Retrospective, on which this track also appears in a remastered/remixed version, state "Bob Dylan (harmonica)", see 1998. Kenneth Robson has two copies of the US album, the first has catalogue number "C 31104" on the front and rear sleeve and the record labels, while the second has "31104" on the front sleeve and "PC 31104" on the rear sleeve and record labels. The sleeve of the earlier album is rough textured card, while the sleeve of the later album is smooth. Scans of the mid-1970s record labels required!

David Bromberg - "David Bromberg" - stereo vinyl LP, Columbia C 31104 (Canada), 16 Feb 1972:


Columbia C 31104 (Canada) - front scan by Manuel García Jara

The Canadian release of this album has the same catalogue number and artwork as the US release. The rear sleeve has the Canadian copyright text and a sticker of a record shop from Edmonton, Alberta. The usual text "LITHO IN CANADA" is printed on the spine. The record has 1970s style Columbia labels, used in the USA since 1970 but not in Canada until this year, where they still used labels with the "360 SOUND STEREO" design: in fact, the Canadian release of A Tribute To Woody Guthrie Part One (above) still has labels with "360 SOUND STEREO", so this David Bromberg album must have been released later than the Woody Guthrie tribute album.

Thanks to Jean-Pol Hiernaux, Peter Gilmer and Jack Guerreiro for news that Spivey Records has remastered its archives and is reissuing this album amongst others by Victoria Spivey on CD for the first time, for more details, see here . This page incorrectly claims the Spivey session in Mar 1962 was Bob Dylan's first commercial recording - his first was actually the Carolyn Hester sessions in Sep 1961, followed by the Harry Belafonte sessions in Feb 1962 (for both see 1962). The CD release was expected on 1 Apr 2007, but has not yet appeared. Thanks to Hank Wellman for pointing out that the four Victoria Spivey tracks are the only performances listed in "Bob On The Side" that are not available on CD!

Photocopies of the flexi-disc rear by Lars M. Banke

Lars M. Banke writes: "I have a Canadian promo flexi-disc/picture cardboard disc issued by Columbia Special Products in Ontario, Canada, which includes a fragment of a Dylan track plus eight other fragments of other artists' tracks. Listeners are invited to identify the nine artists and take part in a contest which closes November 30th, 1972. Fifty winners will be drawn and each will win a Columbia LP of the winners choice. The purpose of the disc is - as far as I understand the liner notes - to promote the use of Columbia Auravision products in advertising and marketing campaigns etc. Unfortunately I cannot tell you the title of the Dylan track as my copy is unused. In order to play the disc you have to push out the centre hole which isn't done on my copy. I hope that it will be possible to identify the track without doing this!"

Information please!

Because of the length of this page, full details of these releases have been moved here.

R-0093 Somebody's Else's Troubles (Steve Goodman) - Bob plays piano and provides harmony vocals (stereo version)
This track had previously been released on a mono US single, Buddah Records BDA-326, in Oct 1972, see above.

The third US commercial release must have been issued not long after the second release because it still has a composite sleeve with a printed paper slick glued over the cardboard sleeve. The record labels are different from those of the promo and second commercial releases:

CD releases (1999):


Buddha Records 74465-99626-2 (USA) - front scan by Hans Seegers

This album was first released on CD by Sequel in the UK with the bonus Dylan track Election Year Rag (R-0111, see Oct 1972 above) in 1990, and in a remastered version with two bonus live non-Dylan tracks by Buddha Records in July 1999. I've included the 1999 release here instead of on the 1999 page because the Dylan content is the same as the LP releases above.

Buddah Records BDK-5121 (Canada) - front insert scan by Hans Seegers

There's some confusion about the spelling of the name of the record company. It was spelled as "Buddah" Records in the 1970s, but this spelling is in fact wrong. In the 1990s, when it was acquired by the BMG group, the label was given a new logo and the spelling of its name was changed to the correct "Buddha" Records. Thanks to Hanns Peter Bushoff of BMG (now Sony Music) for information.
