"Just Like A Woman"/"I Want You" - 7" mono single in "Hall Of Fame" series, Columbia 4-33108 (USA), 25 Apr 1973; Columbia 13-33108 (USA), 1975, reissued early 1980s and 1987:

R-0323-2 Just Like A Woman - edit of album track from mono release of Blonde On Blonde (2:56, album track is 4:54)

For an appearance of R-0323 on a Japanese 7" acetate, see below. I Want You was previously reported to be the edited version R-0322 (see 1966), but here it is actually the standard mono album version at 2:57, see Mono 7" Singles & EPs 1966-68.

There were three label variations of Columbia 4-33108: without original release dates, with release dates in lower case, and with release dates in capitals. The third variant came with the jukebox strip illustrated. Unlike the UK single below, this single had no picture sleeve and used "Columbia Hall Of Fame" generic sleeves. All three variants came in shiny gold Columbia Hall Of Fame sleeves (see 7" Single Sleeves).

Columbia 13-33178 (USA) - detail of A-side of late 1980s release with Collectables logo, shown for information (my copy)

Columbia 13-33108 is much more easy to find and was first released in 1975: there were four label variants: with red labels and a sunburst to the right of the centre hole, with red labels without the sunburst to the right of the centre hole, with grey labels without a "Collectables" logo to the left of the centre hole, and in 1987 with grey labels with a "Collectables" logo to the left of the centre hole (not shown - a scan of another Collectables record label is shown for information). Earlier pressings came in non-shiny gold Columbia Hall Of Fame sleeves, later pressings came in yellow sleeves. For the 1987 Columbia Hall Of Fame sleeves and the Collectables sleeves, see 7" Single Sleeves.

For locations of other "Hall Of Fame" singles: those containing rarities, those in mono, and those in stereo, see "Hall Of Fame".

Please note that the black plastic clip shown in the scans by Kenneth Robson of Columbia 13-33108 is not an official CBS accessory. These clips were sold in record shops so that ex-jukebox records that had had their push-out centres removed could be played on standard turntables, especially automatic turntables that could play multiple singles or LPs (as an alternative to the plastic rings that could be placed on the turntable spindle in order to play ex-jukebox records).


"Just Like A Woman"/"I Want You" - 7" mono single in "Hall Of Fame" series, Columbia 4-33108 (Canada), 25 Apr 1973; Columbia 13-33108 (Canada), 1975; Columbia 13-33108 (Canada), 1997:


Columbia 4-33108 (Canada) - A-side (R-0323), scan by Hans Seegers (1973 release)
The original 1973 Canadian release of this single has the same label design as the first US single variant without the release dates, see above. This single was re-released in Canada in 1997 with a completely new label design. For details of the Canadian "Hall Of Fame" sleeve, see 7" Single Sleeves.

Just Like A Woman"/"I Want You" - 7" stereo singles in "Hall Of Fame Hits" series, CBS 1158 (UK), Apr 1973; S CBS 1158 (UK), late 1970s, 1979:

HOFWoman.jpg (20755 bytes)
S CBS 1158 (UK) - front scan by Hans Seegers (1973 release)

R-0434    I Want You - at 3:10 slightly longer than stereo album version

Just Like A Woman here is the full album version at 4:52! The rare 1973 release had plain orange CBS labels and came with an orange picture sleeve. The catalogue number was "CBS 1158" on the sleeve and "S CBS 1158" on the record labels. Two label variants are shown, one with a push-out centre and one with a solid centre. Later releases of this "Hall Of Fame Hits" single had orange/yellow CBS labels and generic sleeves. The 1979 release labels have the EU Label Code "LC|0149" in a capsule above the catalogue number to the right of the centre hole, missing on the late 1970s release. On all labels the name of producer Bob Johnston was misspelled as "Johnson". Larry Crum has a copy of this single with the orange/yellow labels and states that this appears to be the same as the original stereo version from the 1966 Blonde On Blonde LPs, although it plays noticeably slower, which may account for the extra length.

Even though this single had the same A- and B-sides as the mono US release above, the versions of the songs were both different!

For locations of other "Hall Of Fame" singles: those containing rarities, those in mono, and those in stereo, see "Hall Of Fame".

Apple A-10230 (Australia) - B-side with R-0281, scan by Stuart Moore

If the harmonica solo is Bob's, it was possibly recorded at George's home in Henley-on-Thames, Oxfordshire, in early 1973. There is nothing in Clinton Heylin's "Day By Day" book mentioning a visit by Bob to England in this period. Christoph Maus says the harmonica player is in fact George, who can also be heard playing harmonica on Apple Scruffs on his 1970 3LP set All Things Must Pass.

The A-side of the single comes from George's album Living In The Material World, which was reissued by Apple Records in 2006 with Miss O'Dell as a bonus track (both this B-side and an alternate take on which Bob may or may not play), see 2006. The harmonica player on Miss O'Dell is not credited.

The reverse of the French sleeve is plain black apart from the words "PATHE MARCONI EMI" and "Made in France" on the bottom and right edges.

Thanks to Éamonn Ó Catháin for information about the Irish Parlophone single, which does not have a picture sleeve. Thanks to Kenneth Robson for scans of his copy of the UK single, which does not have the UK picture sleeve shown but comes in a generic black Apple sleeve. Thanks to Stuart Moore for the scan of the Australian single, which also comes in a generic sleeve. Thanks to Manuel García Jara for scans of the Spanish single, where the B-side title is translated as "Señorita O'Dell". Thanks also to Tim Dunn for the precise single release date and to Christoph Maus.

This single was made in Israel by the Gramophone Company Ltd., part of EMI. The front and rear of the sleeve are identical. The record this time has black Parlophone labels with silver text.

Apple S7 BT-68 (Brazil for Paraguay), 1973:


Apple S7 BT-68 (Brazil for Paraguay) - front scan by Manuel García Jara
Paraguay is the only country in South America where no Dylan release was ever pressed or released. In fact, there was never a pressing plant in this country. Only some records, exported from Argentina or Brazil, were distributed there.

Apple S7 BT-68 (Brazil for Paraguay) - rear scan by Manuel García Jara

If Dylan really played on Miss O'Dell, this single could be the only record with Dylan involvement released in Paraguay. Both the sleeve and the record itself were made in Brazil by EMI and therefore it is identical to the single sold in Brazil except for the text, written in an attempt at Spanish, at the bottom of the rear sleeve: "Manofacturado en el Brasil por Odeón y distribuhido en el Paraguay por EMI Internacional Asunción [Manufactured in Brazil by Odeon and distributed in Paraguay by EMI International, Asunción]" There are two misspelled words (in Portuguese rather than Spanish): "manofacturado" (in Spanish it should be "manufacturado") and "distribuhido" (in Spanish it should be "distribuido").

Apple 1621 (Argentina), 1973:


Apple 1621 (Argentina) - A-side scan by Manuel García Jara (no Dylan)
This single was made in Argentina and doesn't have a picture sleeve. The A-side title is translated as "Dame Amor (Dame Paz Sobre La Tierra)".

Apple 7XCE 21724 (Chile), 1973 (two variants):


Apple 7XCE 21724 (Chile) - A-side scan by Manuel García Jara (first variant - no Dylan)
These singles were made in Chile and don't have picture sleeves. The A-side title is translated as "Denme Amor (Denme Paz En La Tierra)".

The text to the left and right of the centre hole is significantly different on the second variant labels. Also, "Gramophone" on the second variant A-side label is misspelled as "Graphmoone". This "mistake" must have been deliberate as it's an anagram of "Gramophone"!

Apple AP.1829 (Venezuela), 1973:


Apple AP.1829 (Venezuela) - A-side scan by Manuel García Jara (no Dylan)
This single was made in Venezuela and doesn't have a picture sleeve. The Apple Records label design always used the outside of the apple for the A-side and the inside for the B-side. Although Miss O'Dell is the B-side (AP.1829-B), this side has the A-side label! Also, the text on both sides is printed at 90° to the label design.

Chris O'Dell:


Chris O'Dell with George Harrison, 1973
The subject of the song, Chris O'Dell, who was the Beatles' secretary at Apple Corps, wrote a book called "Miss O'Dell: My Hard Days and Long Nights with The Beatles, The Stones, Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton, and the Women They Loved" (Touchstone Press, 2009). She was also one of the road managers on the 1975 leg of The Rolling Thunder Revue, and is mentioned in the closing credits of Renaldo & Clara (see VHS & DVD 1970s).

"Bob Dylan Soundtrack: Pat Garrett & Billy The Kid" - vinyl album, Columbia KC 32460 (Canada), 13 Jul 1973:


Columbia KC 32460 (Canada) - picture from eil.com
Thanks to Lars M. Banke and Keith Venturoni for the information that the Canadian release of this LP (Columbia KC 32460) has the order of Billy 4 and Billy 7 reversed on the record itself but not on the sleeve or the label. However, the Canadian release does not have reverse stereo as previously reported, so it's no longer classed as a rarity.

Joan Baez - "Virgin Mary Had One Son" (traditional)/"Blowin' In The Wind" - 7" stereo promo singles, Vanguard Q-37 (Japan), 1973:


Vanguard Q-37 (Japan) - 7" stereo promo single front scan by Manuel García Jara (variant 1)
These stereo singles were given away with the 2LP compilation Joan Baez (Vanguard GEM 135-6), exclusively released in Japan in 1973, and made for Vanguard by King Record Co. Ltd., Tokyo, Japan. There is a great surprise! Blowin' In The Wind is not the live version by Joan previously released in 1967 (see Blowin' In The Wind Covers 1966-69)! It is in fact the version actually performed by Bob with Joan Baez just as an accompanying artist!

R-0022-6 Blowin' In The Wind - performed live with Joan Baez and Peter, Paul and Mary at the Newport Folk Festival, Newport, RI, 26 Jul 1963 (stereo version), released in 1964 on the Vanguard LP The Newport Folk Festival - 1963: The Evening Concerts Vol. 1, see 1964

This is a stereo version, identical to the mono version included in the UK EP "Blowing In The Wind" (Fontana, TFE 18010, also see 1964), with a noticeable difference: the mono version of the Fontana EP starts with Bob saying "We gonna sing Blowin' In The Wind", not present in the stereo version on this Japanese single. I have not allocated this a separate R-number.

The sleeve is the usual Japanese insert and the rear of the first variant has an image of the Joan Baez album with obi. The first variant record has white Vanguard promo labels including the Japanese characters for "SAMPLE" on the left below "45". Neither Bob Dylan nor the Newport Folk Festival are mentioned on the record labels. The A-side was recorded at the Newport Folk Festival 1959. The second variant record comes in a sleeve with a completely different rear, without the LP illustration, but with text in Japanese. The record now has buff Vanguard commercial labels with "JOAN BAEZ AT NEWPORT FOLK FESTIVAL" on the A-side and "JOAN BAEZ with BOB DYLAN" on the B-side.

Thanks to Manuel García Jara for information and scans.

filmstrip1973.jpg (21221 bytes)
Columbia Records #73-6771 (USA) - picture from eBay
R-0646 Bob Dylan biography including excerpts of songs, also with cues for changing film slides.
The programme is about 5 mins long, with song excerpts of Alberta from Self Portrait, Freight Train Blues from Bob Dylan and the cover version of Mr. Tambourine Man by The Byrds

The other side of the record is a similar biography of Miles Davis. This single is claimed to be extremely rare, but is presumably most valuable if included as part of the complete original pack with both filmstrips and any other class material that came with them.

Thanks to Keith Venturoni for finding this on eBay and to Tim Dunn for finding the item in the Bob Dylan copyright records.

Breakaway [Kris Kristofferson/Rita Coolidge] - Monument Records MNT 80547 (UK, 1974) with The Crippled Crow (my copy, no Dylan)

This track was recorded in Feb 1973 at the Jones ranch in Malibu, CA. Bob is credited as "Bobby" Dylan.

The record is housed in a card picture inner sleeve with the song lyrics on the reverse. Also shown are a US test pressing from Monarch Record Mfg. Co. (same both sides) and both promo and commercial releases of the US album.

A&M/Ariola 87387-I (Spain) - front scan by Manuel García Jara
This album was released in a few countries only and once again Spain was one of those countries. A&M records were previously made in Spain by Hispavox but at this time they were made by Ariola-Eurodisc S.A., a Spanish subsidiary of the German label Ariola, based in Barcelona.

The sleeve is essentially identical to the German sleeve above, except for the details shown (note the slight difference in catalogue number). The record comes in the normal card inner sleeve with Spanish copyright text on the rear. This album was released in Spain in early 1974 as stated in the copyright text at the bottom of the rear sleeve, even though the record labels have "1973" as the date of release. These labels have the new A&M design and they were also used in the rare Spanish single below taken from this album.

These commercial A&M US stereo 7" vinyl singles have R-0094 as the B-side. They have generic A&M sleeves as shown. The white label promo 7" single shown has Wild Fox on both sides - mono A&M 1487, stereo A&M 1487-S (same catalogue number as the commercial stereo single with R-0094 as the B-side).

Booker T. & Priscilla Jones - "Wild Fox"/"The Crippled Crow" - stereo 7" vinyl single, A&M 1.487 (Spain), 1973:


A&M 1.487 (Spain) - front scan by Manuel García Jara
This very rare 7" stereo single is unique in having a picture sleeve - the photo comes from the front of the LP inner sleeve. It was made by Ariola-Eurodisc S.A., Barcelona, for A&M Records. Although there is no promo indication on the sleeve or the record labels, it probably was used as a promo because there is a promo card inside the sleeve and there are signs of a sticker having been removed from the A-side to the left of the centre hole.

Thanks to Manuel García Jara for information and scans.

A cassette version was long available in the USA, but it was deleted in the UK much earlier.

Lars M Banke has vinyl copies bought in Sweden of both the US and Canadian releases, with "CBS" stickers covering the "Columbia" logos on the sleeve and labels. Dr. Walter Roedl has a vinyl copy bought in Austria which is a standard Columbia US release except for a white sticker which folds over the top corners of the front and rear sleeves with the CBS logo and the Dutch catalogue number "CBS S 69 049". It has the red sticker from the US release. Unlike other export copies, the record labels are standard Columbia US design. Spain appears to be the only country where this album was released between 1973 and 1992 with three different catalogue numbers - the 1992 release was well after the album was out of print in the rest of the world!

CD releases:


Columbia COL CD 32286 (NL) - CD front insert (my copy)
Dylan was not released on CD in the USA or UK until 2013, although CD versions were released in Japan in 1990 and mainland Europe in 1991 (both now deleted). The CD release of this 1973 album was renamed Bob Dylan (A Fool Such As I) in Europe, but remained Dylan in Japan. A cassette version was still available in the USA until the early 2000s. CD copies of this album command a very high price, despite the perceived poor quality of its material.
Sony Records SRCS 6163 (Japan) - CD front with obi, scan by Wil Gielen (1990 release)

Thanks to "Isis" magazine, Dec 2012, for news of the The Bootleg Series Vol. 10, a 2CD set of out-takes from the Self Portrait and other sessions, not including any tracks from the long-deleted 1973 Dylan album. For more information, see . The 1973 Dylan album has now been released on CD in a remastered edition as part of The Complete Album Collection Vol. One (see 2013).

R-0097 Lily Of The West (Traditional, arranged E. Davies/J. Peterson) - New Morning out-take, recorded Columbia Studios, New York, 3 Jun 1970

R-0100 Can't Help Falling In Love (Hugo Peretti/Luigi Creatore/George David Weiss) - New Morning out-take, recorded Columbia Studios, New York, 3 Jun 1970, this track was reportedly also the A-side of a South Korean single, see Questionable Releases

R-0098 Sarah Jane (traditional) - New Morning out-take, recorded Columbia Studios, New York, 1 Jun 1970

R-0104 The Ballad of Ira Hayes (Peter La Farge) - New Morning out-take, recorded Columbia Studios, New York, 1 Jun 1970
Ira Hayes, a Pima Indian from Arizona, was one of the six US Marines photographed by Joe Rosenthal on 23 Feb 1945 in the iconic World War 2 photograph "Raising The Flag On Iwo Jima" (see ). After the war he succumbed to alcoholism and died in 1954. His story is told in the 2006 Clint Eastwood film "Flags Of Our Fathers", where he is played by Adam Beach. (He's previously been portrayed in films by Lee Marvin and Tony Curtis!). Bob's recording of this song by Peter La Farge, himself a Native American, is a highlight of this album. According to Ian Woodward R-0104 was scheduled to be included in a tribute album to Peter La Farge to be released in 2007.

R-0101 Mr. Bojangles (Jerry Jeff Walker) - New Morning out-take, recorded Columbia Studios, New York, 1 Jun 1970

This track also appeared on a 1991 Columbia promo CD single Dylan Originals (see 1991)

R-0099 A Fool Such As I (Bill Trader) - Self Portrait out-take recorded at Columbia Studios, Nashville, TN, 26 Apr 1969
This is the stereo version, a mono version (presumably a reduction from stereo) was released on Columbia 7" singles (R-0099M, see 1974) This song was written by Bill Trader, but is frequently wrongly credited on releases of this album and Columbia singles to "B. Abner" (Buford Abner) - see authorship note here!

R-0096 Spanish Is The Loving Tongue (Charles Badger Clark/Billy Simon) - band version with backing singers, Self Portrait out-take recorded at Columbia Studios, Nashville, TN, 24 Apr 1969, not the solo version R-0072 (stereo)/R-0072M (mono) released in 1971 as a single B-side, which was a 1970 New Morning out-take. R-0072(M) has three verses, this version omits the second one of those.
See the note about writer credits for this song in the entry for R-0072 in 1971.
This take is also different from the take released in 2013 on The Bootleg Series, Vol. 10 - Another Self Portrait (1969-1971).

The Blu-Spec CD2 specification CDs come in card sleeves with printed inner sleeves and "SONY MUSIC" instead of "COLUMBIA" on the discs. Bob's 1970s albums from Self Portrait to Slow Train Coming were released in Japan on 23 Apr 2014 in card sleeves as Blu-Spec CD2 discs numbered Sony Music SICP 30482 to SICP 30500. The 2013 remastered Dylan is SICP 30488.

If this album is released as a separate remastered CD in the USA/Europe I shall remove it from the Rarities listing!

"Gold Disc" - vinyl compilation album in gold foil sleeve, CBS/Sony SOPN 25 (Japan), 1973:
I previously had this listed for 1972, but Hans Seegers believes it to be from 1974. Confusingly John Shaw says he purchased his copy in Japan in 1973, a date of which he is sure. Wil Gielen supports the 1973 date. Presumably catalogue numbers starting with "SOPN" are later than the "SOPI" release from Dec 1973 above. Sadly scans of the gold foil outside of the gatefold sleeve of this compilation, Vol. 17 of a series of "Gold Disc" compilations exclusive to Japan, cannot do it justice.

The first release has a price of ¥2,200 on the yellow, black and white obi, but the second copy shown has a blue sticker on the obi changing the price to ¥2,400. Apparently this was done in 1975 prior to reprinting the obis. John Shaw's copy is priced at ¥2,200, the same as Hans'. Sergio Mariano Romay's copy has a red sticker on the obi with the new price of ¥2,400, although this has not been changed on the rear of the obi. On the rear sleeve of this copy a sticker over the original price of ¥2,200 at bottom right has been removed, with some sleeve damage. The record comes in a gatefold sleeve with a 12" stapled booklet inside the sleeve. The booklet has a reproduction of Milton Glaser’s 1967 poster; a Bob Dylan biography (in Japanese only), the lyrics of the songs (in English and Japanese); and a centrefold that reproduces the main photo of Self Portrait, CBS/Sony C2X 30050 (inside of the gatefold sleeve, left side). The last page of the booklet has a photo of Dylan from the Concert for Bangladesh from Bob Dylan’s Greatest Hits Vol. II, CBS/Sony KG 31120 (again inside of the gatefold sleeve, left side). The inside of the gatefold sleeve has the tracklisting on the left and a Dylan discography on the right. The record comes in a paper inner sleeve with illustrations of other CBS/Sony releases in the "Gold Disc" series including Dylan. The copy shown has stamped matrix numbers: Side 1 - SOPN–25A1, Side 2 - SOPN–25B1.

Thanks to Hans Seegers, Shawn Chambers, John Shaw, Ulf Gyllenspetz and Sergio Mariano Romay for information and pictures.
