Columbia 3-10245 promo second release (ZLP 160777-2) - scan by Hans Seegers: mono side R-0448, "SPECIAL RUSH RESERVICE" above catalogue number on right (variant 2)

Stefan Haras has a copy with "DEMONSTRATION NOT FOR SALE" rubber stamped on the front sleeve in a different position from the stamp on the front of Hans Seegers' similar copy. The record is the second release variant 1B (mono/stereo) with "DJ RESERVICE" on the labels. Stefan says that the stereo side actually plays mono and the mono side actually plays stereo! I do not know if this is a common fault.

For world-wide commercial releases in 1975 and 1976 with Hurricane split over two sides of a 7" single (Part I = R-0126,  Part II = R-0127), and alternate versions of Hurricane Part I (R-0126) with a swear-word bleeped (stereo = R-0441, mono = R-0525), see below.

Thanks to Hans Seegers and Stefan Haras for information and scans.

Columbia 3-10245 (USA) promo single - front scan by Hans Seegers ("Demonstration - Not For Sale" in top left-hand corner)

These two different singles with the same sleeve (promo sleeve 2 above) have only the first part of the song on each side, both stereo and mono!

R-0525 Hurricane (Part I) (Bob Dylan/Jacques Levy): radio station edit (3:45) with swear-word bleeped (mono version)

This French 7" single comes in a Dutch sleeve, the third variant above with orange text, printed in Holland. The record itself was made in France. For some reason there is a gap in French 7" single releases in 1975, in that there were no single releases from Blood On The Tracks or The Basement Tapes, and this is the only French single released from Desire. (The French releases of Blood On The Tracks, Desire and Hard Rain were made in Holland.)

Thanks to Manuel García Jara for information and scans.

The West German commercial sleeve has the additional words "Part 1 + 2" below the red song title on the commercial front sleeve. The promo rear sleeve is generic without text, see 7" Single Sleeves. The commercial rear sleeve is the same as the commercial front. There were three commercial releases: the first two do not have an "LC|0149" capsule on the record labels. The first commercial release record has labels with the same text layout as those of the promo release - these labels do not have the CBS logo included in the circumference text. The second commercial release labels have new circumference text including the CBS logo as shown.

The commercial single was re-released in the late 1970s in the same sleeve but with one minor record label difference - it now has "LC|0149" in a capsule printed to the right of the centre hole below the "GEMA" logo. The circumference text is the same as that of the second commercial release including the CBS logo.

CBS 4603 (Spain) - front scan by Manuel García Jara

Like the Italian and Japanese singles below, the lyrics have "South Africa" instead of "South America".

The apparently attractive sleeve for the Spanish Hurricane single above is really a blatant fake. The "No. 1 in USA" logo (printed, not a sticker) is actually taken from Asylum Spanish singles like the Eagles example shown. The real CBS Spain "NO. UNO EN USA" logo is shown on a Spanish Chicago single. The Hurricane single actually only reached #33 in the USA, although the Desire album did reach #1 (and was sold in Spain with this logo on the front sleeve). Thanks to Manuel García Jara for the information and the Eagles/Chicago scans.

CBS/Sony SOPB 349 (Japan) - front scan by Ronald Born

This single had the lyrics on the rear sleeve in English and Japanese. There was a promo single with white CBS/Sony labels and commercial versions with regular orange labels. The promo single came in a blue generic CBS/Sony sleeve, see 7" Single Sleeves.

Like the Spanish and Italian singles, the lyrics have "South Africa" instead of "South America".

The first commercial single has the same text as the promo single, but the second promo single has "Engineered by Don Meehan" added above "Produced by Don DeVito".

"Hurricane (Part I)"/"Hurricane (Part II)" - 7" promo and commercial singles, CBS BA 222184 (Australia), Nov 1975, re-released ca. 1976:


CBS BA 222184 (Australia) - front scan by Hans Seegers (all releases)

The Australian single was released twice in the same sleeve, first with the 1960s-style orange label design, and then with the 1970s-style orange/yellow label design. Promo and commercial copies of each release are shown. Early Australian release labels like both shown had the text "MADE IN AUSTRALIA BY A REGISTERED USER OF THE TRADE MARKS" without a CBS copyright. This is because up to 1977 all Australian records were manufactured by the Australian Record Company (Pty) Ltd. (A.R.C.) on behalf of CBS, as shown on the rear sleeve of this single. A.R.C. changed its name to CBS Records Australia Limited on 17 Oct 1977, and after that date the labels have longer bottom edge text which includes CBS copyright information, not shown here.

The first record shown is a first release commercial copy with promo stamp ("NOT FOR SALE") on the A-side only, the sleeve is the same as shown. The B-side does not have a promo stamp, but the text below the centre hole is slightly higher than that of the first release commercial copy B-side.

The next record has orange/yellow labels, and this time has the same promo stamp on the rear of the sleeve and also on the A-side. Again, the B-side does not have a promo stamp but again has the variable text in a slightly different position from that of the second release commercial copy B-side. This time the text is lower than that of the commercial copy, e.g. in my copy the text "(P) 1975 CBS Inc." at top right is aligned with the second "R" of "RECORD" in the circumference text; on the commercial copy the text  "(P) 1975 CBS Inc." is aligned with the first "R" of "RECORD".

Both the promo and commercial records have stamped matrix numbers: Side A - ASS 2516, Side B - ASS 2517.

CBS 30037 (Bolivia) - front scan by Hans Seegers (with tape round three sides)
This very rare single also has orange/yellow Discos CBS labels and was pressed by Heriba Ltda of Bolivia on behalf of Discos CBS. The sleeve is made of thin paper and has what looks like a jukebox label on the rear. As well as sticking brown tape round three sides of the sleeve, the original owner has written his name on both sides of the sleeve and both labels! Sergio Mariano Romay has found another copy without the tape, the rear sticker and the handwriting!

This acetate is completely plain with just a white typewritten sticker. CBS UK were going to issue this live version as one side of a 12" single, but it never happened, unfortunately.

CBS/Columbia CSR 0934 (Peru) - insert scan by Manuel García Jara
This incredibly rare single is actually in a generic sleeve with this monochrome insert (blank on the other side). The bottom text is "Fabricado por Industria Sono Radio S.L., Industria Peruana". The record has orange CBS/Columbia labels and the song titles are translated as "Huracán I" and "Huracán II". There were two releases, the one shown in early 1976 with the insert and one without the insert in mid-1976.

S CBS 3878JB (UK) - two variants:
Presumably the "JB" stands for "Jukebox".
Label side A says: "HURRICANE (Part I)" and plays on 45 RPM. Swear-word bleeped.
Label side B says: "HURRICANE (Part II)" this is not true, it plays the full-length version at 45 RPM which is stated on the label.

The 2nd variant is visually exactly the same (except for matrix numbers) but:
Label side A says: "HURRICANE (Part 1)" and plays at 45 RPM. Swear-word bleeped.
Label side B says: "HURRICANE (Part II)" this is not true, it plays the full-length version at 
33⅓ RPM  while 45 RPM is stated on label.

Tom Willems has a copy of S CBS 3878JB (variant 1) with a sticker with "FVH" over the "CBS" logo,  large "A" and "B" above the text lines to the right of the centre hole, and a large "698" above the song title on the A-side only. The letters and numbers have been added with Letraset. This has presumably been customised by a collector, rather than a radio station or library.

S CBS 3878 (UK) - first variant:
Overall length of "BOB DYLAN" on left is 20 mm.
Label side A says: "HURRICANE (Part 1)" with LP credits, 45 printed in large numbers. Swear-word bleeped.
Label side B says: "HURRICANE" with LP credits,
33⅓ printed in large numbers. "Full length version" on right.

S CBS 3878 (UK) - second variant:
Second variant: Overall length of "BOB DYLAN" on left is larger at 28 mm
Label A states: "HURRICANE (Part 1)" without LP credits, 45 printed in small figures. Swear-word bleeped.
Label B states: "HURRICANE" without LP credits,
33⅓ printed in small figures. It omits "Full length version" on right.

S CBS 3878 (UK) - third variant:
The third variant is again only identified by matrix numbers:
Overall length of "BOB DYLAN" again 28 mm
Label A states:" HURRICANE (Part 1)" without LP credits, 45 printed in small figures. Swear-word bleeped.
Label B states: "HURRICANE" without LP credits,
33⅓ printed in small figures. This is mislabelled, because it plays at 45 rpm! It omits "Full length version" on right.

S CBS 3878 (UK) - fourth variant:
Overall length of "BOB DYLAN" on left is 20 mm.
Label side A states: "HURRICANE (Part 1)" without LP credits, 45 printed in large figures. Swear-word bleeped.
Label side B states: "HURRICANE" without LP credits,
33⅓ printed in large figures. 'FULL LENGTH VERSION' on right (I have a copy of this one!)

S CBS 3878 (UK) - fifth variant:
Overall length of "BOB DYLAN" on left is 20 mm
Label side A states: "HURRICANE (Part 1)" with LP reference, 45 printed in large figures. Swear-word bleeped.
Label side B is the same as the previous single.

"Hurricane (Part I)"/"Hurricane Part II)" - 7" commercial single, CBS 3878 (Italy), Jan 1976:
This single is the same as CBS 3841, released earlier in Holland, West Germany and Spain. The UK single S CBS 3878 is completely different, see above.

Thanks to Paul Shenton for spotting that the lyrics on the rear sleeve have "Rubin's in South Africa" instead of "South America" in the sixth verse, like the Spanish and Japanese singles above! Thanks to Sergio Mariano Romay a copy with stickers from magazine "Omaggio Music" on the front sleeve and A-side and also for the information that Hurricane Carter fought in Argentina before going to jail. Dylan refers to the fight that Rubin "Hurricane" Carter starred in the city of Rosario (Argentina, province of Santa Fé) on August 5, 1966. This was Carter's last fight. He was defeated by the Argentine Juan Carlos Rivero (born in the province of Córdoba). "Two months after the triple murder in a bar in the town of Paterson, New Jersey, and his arrest for some hours as a suspect in the crime, Carter landed in Rosario to face Juan Carlos Rivero from Córdoba. The result was not expected by the American, possible challenger to the middleweight world title. He lost by points after ten intense rounds".

Thanks to Éamonn Ó Catháin and Sam C. Visser for information, and to Hans Seegers and Sergio Mariano Romay for scans.

This single came with an insert with the story of Rubin "Hurricane" Carter in Portuguese and the lyrics of the song in English.

CBS 45-7568 (Mexico) - front scan by Hans Seegers

In common with other Mexican Dylan releases, the title is translated into Spanish - this time as "Huracán". This single was previously listed for Nov 1975, but the label is clearly dated 1976.

There was also an Argentinean 7" promo and commercial single with this split, CBS 22828 - scans required.

The B-side was the regular album track from Desire.

Two label variations of the 1976 US single are shown, one with the catalogue number and credits in a white box. This single was re-released in 1987 with the same catalogue number with a different label and sleeve design. The Columbia "Hall Of Fame" singles were re-released in the late 1980s by Collectables Record of Narberth, PA, using a unique sleeve - the record label itself is grey and has the "Collectables" logo added on the left.

This single was also released in Canada in 1997 with a completely new label design.

Hanns Peter Bushoff has a mint copy of the US single with red labels released in 2006. It has a plain white sleeve.
