"A Fool Such As I" - radio station promo stereo/mono 7" singles, Columbia 4-45982/JZSP 159121 (USA), 19 Nov 1973:

FoolUSPromoStereo.jpg (21177 bytes)
Columbia 4-45982 promo 7" single (USA) - stereo side with song wrongly credited to Buford Abner, scan by Hans Seegers (first variant)
This promo single has stereo and mono versions of the same song. There are three major variants, illustrated here by the mono sides. Two of the variants have differences between copies, also shown.

R-0099-4 A Fool Such As I (Bill Trader) - stereo album version from 1973 Dylan album

R-0099M A Fool Such As I (Bill Trader) - mono version not available on 1973 Dylan album, see 1973 (this is presumably a mono reduction of the stereo source)

This release wrongly credits A Fool Such As I to Buford Abner. See the note about writer credits in 1973 and here. For the US commercial singles, see below.

Label variants are:

  • Publishing credits spread over five lines, "NOT FOR" on sixth line, "SALE" on seventh line
  • Publishing credits spread over five lines, "NOT" on sixth line, "FOR SALE" on seventh line
  • Publishing credits spread over four lines, "NOT" on sixth line, "FOR SALE" on seventh line

The publishing details are of course incorrect! Also, the type face used is different on the second and third variants.

Thanks to Ole Lien for the initial information and Hans Seegers for the scans of all the variants.

R-0099-5 A Fool Such As I (Bill Trader) - Self Portrait out-take recorded at Columbia Studios, Nashville, TN, 26 Apr 1969

R-0097-4 Lily Of The West (Traditional, arranged E. Davies/J. Peterson) - New Morning out-take, recorded Columbia Studios, New York, 3 Jun 1970

The US and Canadian releases of the single had no picture sleeve. For a test pressing of the US single, see above.

There are three variants of the US single with the same type face changes as the promo singles above. The first two variants have A Fool Such As I wrongly credited to "B. Abner", the third has been corrected and has the song correctly credited to "B. Trader". Also shown is a copy of the first variant that has "DEMONSTRATION NOT FOR SALE" stamped on the A-side, and two jukebox strips, one using a pink "HIT POP" strip, the other white.

The 1974 Canadian release of Columbia 4-45982 has orange/yellow labels and credited the A-side correctly. A promo version of this single was released using the commercial copy with a promo stamp on the A-side, dated "FÉV 14 1974" (14 Feb 1974).

Thanks to Hans Seegers for information and scans.

"A Fool Such As I"/"Lily Of The West" - stereo 7" single, CBS 2006 (Canada for export to the Far East), 1974:


CBS 2006 (Canada for export to the Far East) - A-side with R-0099 correctly credited to Bill Trader, scan by Dag Braathen

This intriguing single was made in Canada but has plain orange CBS labels, the UK CBS catalogue number and UK trademark information. It was probably made for export from Canada to a Far East country.

Thanks to Hans Seegers for information and to Dag Braathen for scans.

"A Fool Such As I"/"Lily Of The West" - stereo 7" singles, CBS S 2006 (West Germany)/CBS 2006 (NL), 11 Jan 1974; CBS 2006 (Sweden), 1974:
The Dutch and West German singles were released on 11 Jan 1974, the UK single below on 25 Jan 1974 - I don't have precise dates for the other European singles. The success of this single in mainland Europe is the reason why the short-lived CD release of the 1973 Dylan album (see 1973) was retitled (A Fool Such As I) in those countries!

For the generic "CBS-Blitzinformation" rear sleeve of the West German promo single, see 7" Single Sleeves. The West German singles had R-0099 correctly credited to "B. Trader". However, the Dutch single has it wrongly credited to "B. Abner".

Hans Seegers and Lars M. Banke inform me that for the Swedish release of CBS 2006, the record was made in Sweden but used the Dutch sleeve shown here. This record was unique in that R-0097 was the A-side! Again R-0099 was wrongly credited to "B. Abner". I understood previously that all CBS Scandinavian singles were pressed at the PolyGram plant in Oslo, Norway, and distributed throughout Scandinavia in locally printed sleeves. However, three Dylan 1970s singles including this one were pressed in Sweden at a different plant, and all have "MADE IN SWEDEN" at the bottom of the labels.

Thanks to Hans Seegers and Lars M. Banke for information and scans.

This single was made in Italy by CBS Sugar SpA. The promo copy of  CBS 2006 has the same sleeve design front and back. The records have orange CBS labels. Manuel García Jara's promo copy has a stamp "DISCO CAMPIONE NON VENDIBILE" ["SAMPLE DISC NOT FOR SALE"] on the B-side. R-0099 on the A-side was wrongly credited to "B. Abner".

The Spanish single CBS 2006 has orange CBS labels and the titles translated as "Tan Loco Como Yo" and "Lily Del Oeste" - compare these with the Mexican translations below! R-0099 was wrongly credited to "B. Abner", as it was on the Italian single. The single was made in Spain by COFASA S.A. for CBS.

"A Fool Such As I"/"Lily Of The West" - stereo 7" single, CBS 2006 (Portugal), 1974:

The Portuguese single has a front sleeve with a very faint blue design - it is also shown with artificially high contrast to make it more prominent. R-0099 is credited to "C. Trader" on the A-side label but correctly to "b. trader" on the rear sleeve.

Thanks to Hans Seegers and Francisco Lima for information and scans.

Columbia 13-33259 (Canada, late 1980s) - B-side scan (R-0099) by Hans Seegers

R-0099-10 A Fool Such As I (Bill Trader) - Self Portrait out-take recorded at Columbia Studios, Nashville, TN, 26 Apr 1969, from deleted 1973 Dylan album
The B-side label correctly credits the song to Bill Trader. The song length here is given incorrectly as 3:37 when it is really 2:38. 3:37 is actually the length of
Lily Of The West, the B-side of the single shown above!

This single was re-released as Columbia 13-33259 in 1975, with three variants (all shown above):

  1. With black sunburst, matrix numbers: A-side - T ZSS 157664 1F (stamped), B-side - ZSS 159122-1J (written).
  2. Without black sunburst, rubber stamped "DEMONSTRATION - NOT FOR SALE", matrix numbers: A-side - ZSS 157664 1AA (stamped), B-side - ZSS 159122-1J (written).
  3. Without black sunburst, matrix numbers: A-side - ZSS 157664 1AB (stamped), B-side - ZSS 159122-1K (written).

On the variants without the sunburst, the original release date ("July 31, 1973") is printed slightly lower below the white line.

It was later released twice in the 1980s, again under licence by Collectables Records in 1993, and again by Columbia in 1997, still mono. Manuel García Jara has a copy of the 1987 release with grey labels with a "DEMONSTRATION NOT FOR SALE" stamp on the A-side. The 1974 Canadian release of Columbia 13-33259 has the red/black design without the sunburst. It was re-released in the late 1980s with unique Canadian light blue/lilac labels with text in English and French. The B-side is correctly credited to "B. Trader" and the song length is correct at 2:38.

Thanks to Patrick Helfrich for the scans of the Collectables Re-Issue 7" single. This copy has matrix numbers: A-side - ZSS-157664-IAA, B-side: ZSS159122-1K.
