(1975)

This page is part of a list of original releases by release date of international commercially-released regular stereo Dylan albums. They do not contain rarities or obscurities and are not eligible for the Searching For A Gem list. Nevertheless, their interest value or scarcity means they're worth listing here - as far as I know some are not included on any other Internet site. Promo releases of regular albums are now listed here and no longer in the former yearly Promo sections.

For releases of this album in CBS/Columbia multi-packs, see International Album Releases (Regular) - Multi-Packs.

Original US stereo 2LP set, Columbia C2 33682, 26 Jun 1975

After the success of Blood On The Tracks, Bob authorised the belated release of tracks from the 1967 home recording sessions with The Band in the basement of Big Pink. The photographs on the outside and inside of the gatefold sleeve were taken by Reid Miles in the basement of the YMCA in Los Angeles, CA, in 1975. Apart from Bob, The Band and various people depicting characters from the songs, guests include Neil Young and David Blue. The newspaper seller is the legendary Jimmy Berman from New York, the subject of Allen Ginsberg's Jimmy Berman Rag (R-0158, see 1974). Ringo Starr was thought to be on the cover wearing a Royal Air Force uniform, but Rod MacBeath in his article "Looking Up Dylan's Sleeves Part 3" in "The Telegraph" issue 52 (Summer 1995), says it is actually Richard Manuel.

Thanks to "Isis" 161 for the photos of the exotic jacket Bob is wearing on the outer and inner sleeve photos, which came up for auction by Guernsey-based PFC Auctions on Bob's 71st birthday, 24 May 2012. The jacket is made from a Chumash Native American blanket, a tribe that lived on the California coastline and on California's islands. The winning bid was £9,193 ($14.397/€11.492)!

Record organisation:

The record sides for The Basement Tapes are ordered in a specific way: Record 1 has Sides 1 and 4, while Record 2 has Sides 2 and 3. This arrangement was common at this time to work with "multi-disc auto-changer" record players, where the records were placed one on top of the other on a spindle, and Record 2 dropped down automatically after Side 1 of Record 1 had finished. After Side 2 (Side 1 of Record 2) had finished, you just turned the two records over together to play Sides 3 and 4! This is the only two record Dylan set I have that has this arrangement, it was not used for the four earlier UK double albums (Blonde On Blonde, Self Portrait, More Greatest Hits and Before The Flood on Island Records), and for none afterwards. (Some worldwide Apple/CBS releases of The Concert For Bangladesh or Asylum releases of Before The Flood have this arrangement too.)
An auto-changer turntable playing a two record set - Side 1 is playing, when it finishes Side 2 will drop down and start playing automatically

Tracklist (24 tracks):

Side 1: Odds And Ends; Orange Juice Blues (The Band); Million Dollar Bash; Yazoo Street Scandal (The Band); Going To Acapulco; Katie's Been Gone (The Band).

Side 2: Lo! And Behold; Bessie Smith (The Band); Clothes Line Saga; Apple Suckling Tree; Please Mrs. Henry; Tears Of Rage.

Side 3: Too Much Of Nothing; Yea! Heavy And A Bottle Of Bread; Ain't No More Cane (The Band); Crash On The Levee (Down In The Flood); Ruben Remus (The Band); Tiny Montgomery.

Side 4: You Ain't Goin' Nowhere; Don't Ya Tell Henry (The Band); Nothing Was Delivered; Open The Door, Homer; Long Distance Operator (The Band); This Wheel's On Fire.

Columbia C2 33682 (USA), 1975 release:


Columbia C2 33682 (USA) - front scan by Steven Fant (promo copy with sticker and timing strip)

The white label promo 2LP set has a radio station timing strip on the gatefold sleeve. Ulf Gyllenspetz's copy has it on the back, Steven Fant and Gerd Rundel's copies have it on the front. Steven Fant and Gerd Rundel's promo copies also have a white sticker listing the tracks. All promo copies have the outer top corners of the gatefold sleeve cut off. The records have Side 1 paired with Side 4 and Side 2 paired with Side 3 as my UK copy below (see auto-changer comments above). The matrix numbers of this copy are: Side 1 - P AL 33683-1A, Side 2 - P AL 33684-1A, Side 3 - P BL 33684-1A, Side 4 - P BL 33683-1A.

Columbia C2 33682 (USA) - spine with "X998" code, scan by Manuel García Jara


Columbia C2 33682 (USA) - detail of rear of gatefold sleeve, scan by Gerd Rundel (commercial copy)

Phill Townsend's white label copy has cut corners and a timing strip but no additional track listing sticker (and no residue to suggest there ever was one). The records of this copy have matrix numbers: Side 1 - P AL 33683-1E (stamped) 2T (handwritten), Side 2 - P AL 33684-1B (stamped) 1T (handwritten), Side 3 - P BL 33684-1B (stamped) 1T (handwritten), Side 4 - P BL 33683-1B (stamped) 1T (handwritten).

Steven Fant points that the text on the spine of a sealed promo copy with the sticker with the “Bob Dylan & The Band” in an outline style text is: “C2 33682 Bob Dylan And The Band The Basement Tapes Columbia Stereo X998” (detailed scan above). On the spine of the sealed first issue with the different commercial release sticker is just: “C2 33682 Bob Dylan And The Band The Basement Tapes Columbia Stereo”. Manuel García Jara says the "X998" is a double album price code, but he doesn't know why it is on the spine of some copies, but not on others.


Columbia C2 33682 (USA) - detail of rear with Military Sale stamp, scan by Lars M. Banke

Lars M. Banke has a copy of the US 2LP commercial release with the same record labels as shown with a gold stamp "FOR MILITARY SALE ONLY" on the rear sleeve. This would have been for sale at US military PX stores worldwide, without sales tax.

Columbia C2 33682 (USA), late 1980s release:


Columbia C2 33682 (USA) - front scan by Gerd Rundel (late 1980s release)

The late 1980s release of the set comes in the same gatefold sleeve as the 1975 release. The “X998” code on the spine of the copy shown is obscured. The records have Side 1 paired with Side 4 and Side 2 paired with Side 3. The Side 1 (Record 1, Side 1) and Side 2 (Record 2, Side 1) record labels have an inverted triangle to the left of the centre hole, first introduced in the USA with Biograph in 1985. The records of the copy shown have matrix numbers: Side 1 - AL 33683-2A (stamped), Side 2 - <B-AD> AL 33684 G1C (handwritten), Side 3 - (HXAD) BL-33684 G1A (handwritten), Side 4 - <BXMP> BL 33683 G2A (handwritten).

Tim Norford has a copy of the US release bought in Switzerland with a "CBS" sticker on the rear sleeve and three shaped white stickers covering the ring of Columbia logos on the record labels. The stamped matrix numbers of this copy are: Side 1 - P AL 33683-1F, Side 2 - P AL 33684-1C, Side 3 - P BL 33684-1F, Side 4 - P BL 33683-1D.

Gerd Rundel has a  “USA for export” label variant with three shaped purple "CBS" stickers covering the ring of Columbia logos on the labels. The Side 3 stickers have been removed and the label shows clearly the Columbia logos and “PRINTED IN USA”. As expected, Side 1 is paired with Side 4 and Side 2 is paired with Side 3. The front of the gatefold sleeve has a black track listing sticker with white text like the Dutch and Greek albums shown below. The rear of the gatefold sleeve has a "CBS" sticker at top left, the same as Tim Norford's copy. The Columbia information at the bottom of the rear sleeve is not obscured. The records have the same stamped matrix numbers as Tim's copy.

Bob Dylan/The Band - "The Basement Tapes" - stereo cassette releases, Columbia C2T 33682 (USA), 1970s; Columbia CGT 33682 (USA), mid 1980s, re-released late 1980s:


Columbia C2T 33682 (USA) - outside of cassette insert, scan by Gerd Rundel (1970s release)
The 1970s single cassette release has catalogue number "C2T 33682" on the insert and the cassette. The insert has no barcode. The inside of the insert is blank. The cassette is grey with black text printed directly on to it, there are no paper labels. It has "MADE IN U.S.A." on Side 2.

The two mid-1980s single cassette releases shown are unusual in that they have three different catalogue numbers: "CGT 33682" on the insert, "GT 33682" on Side 1 and "C2T 33682" on Side 2! The insert now has a barcode. The inside of the insert is blank. The first cassette is again grey with black text printed directly on to it. It now has a different text layout on Side 1 including the upside-down triangle symbol introduced with Biograph in 1985. Side 2 is exactly the same as Side 2 of the 1970s release, even the catalogue number. I assume copies exist with the "correct" Side 2. Manuel García Jara's mid-1980s copy has exactly the same insert and layout of cassette sides, but this time the cassette is white, not grey.

The late 1980s release insert still has catalogue number “CGT 33682” while the cassette now has “GT 33682” on both sides - apart from colour, Side 1 is the same as the previous Side 1. The insert again has a barcode. The inside of the insert is again blank. The cassette is transparent smoked grey with white text, there are again no paper labels.

Bob Dylan/The Band - "The Basement Tapes" -stereo 2LP set, Columbia C2X 33682 (Canada), 26 Jun 1975 (two releases):

Columbia C2X 33682 (Canada) - first release:


Columbia C2X 33682 (Canada) - front scan by Gerd Rundel (first release)
Both the gatefold sleeve and the records of this stereo 2LP set were made in Canada. Like the US set above, the sides are in auto-changer sequence: Record 1 has Sides 1 and 4, while Record 2 has Sides 2 and 3.

Both the rear sleeve and the record labels of the first release have “COLUMBIA RECORDS OF CANADA LTD”. The colour of the first release labels are a much lighter red than the second release labels. The record of this copy have handwritten matrix numbers: Side 1 - AL-33683-1H-2HDK:, Side 2 - AL-33684-1H-2HD:, Side 3 - BL-33684-1H-2HDK:, Side 4 - BL-33683-1A-2HKD:.

Both the rear sleeve and the record labels of the second release have "CBS RECORDS OF CANADA LTD.". Columbia Records of Canada Ltd. became CBS Records Canada Ltd. in late 1976, so this release is after then. The copyright text on the rear of the second release sleeve is on three lines instead of one.

Bob Dylan/The Band - "The Basement Tapes" - stereo 2LP set, CBS 88147 (UK), Jul 1975, re-released later in 1975 (twice) and late 1970s:
Amazingly, the first copies on sale in the UK came from three sources, the UK itself, Spain and Holland!

CBS 88147 (UK), Jul 1975 (first release):


CBS 88147 (UK) - front with sticker, scan by David Burgess
This was the first UK Dylan album to have the orange/yellow 1970s style CBS labels on first release, and the records are ordered as described above: Record 1 has Sides 1 and 4, while Record 2 has Sides 2 and 3. David Burgess' copy of this album has a brown sticker with white text in the top right hand corner of the front sleeve.

Manuel García Jara has a copy where the records have the earlier style of plain orange CBS labels. This is extremely rare, only a small number of copies can have been made before the label style was changed. My copy below was bought on the day of release, and that has orange/yellow labels! His gatefold sleeve has the same sticker as David Burgess' copy, but was printed in England while mine was printed in Holland (see the Dutch releases below). Because of the label style I have designated this as the first release.

CBS 88147 (UK) - front of gatefold sleeve (second release, my copy - CBS logo on front)
As stated, this copy was bought in England on the first day of release. However, the gatefold sleeve of my copy was printed by Shorewood Packaging in Holland and has the CBS logo on the front at top left (the other UK sleeves shown here have the CBS logo on the rear at top right). "2xC" is printed in a lozenge on the rear at top right. The sleeve used for the Dutch 1975 and late 1980s releases shown below is exactly the same! The inside of the gatefold sleeve has "88147" at top right of the left hand side.

My UK records with orange/yellow CBS labels have two serial numbers: CBS S 88147 on the left, and S 80917/S 80918 on the right above the US serial number C2 33682. The matrix numbers are: Record 1, Side 1 - CBS-S-88147-A1  80917-A1 (Side 1), Record 1, Side 2 - CBS-S-88147-B1  80917-B1 (Side 4), Record 2, Side 1 - CBS-S-88147-C1  80918-A1 (Side 2), Record 2, Side 2 - CBS-S-88147-D1  80918-B1 (Side 3).

CBS S 88147 (Spain for UK), 1975:


CBS S 88147 (Spain for UK) - front with brown sticker, scan by Manuel García Jara (first release, both copies)

This release also exists in a remarkable variant made in Spain for the UK. I received scans from Gerd Rundel and Manuel García Jara at the same time, but Gerd is happy that Manuel's scans are used here. The sleeve was made in England and has rear text "Interpak II by Shorewood Packaging Co Ltd England" as the first release above. The records have plain orange CBS labels with "MADE IN SPAIN". Manuel García Jara has two copies, both of which were bought new in Manchester in Aug 1975. The sleeves are identical and have brown front stickers. Manuel's first copy has plain orange CBS labels with "MADE IN SPAIN" on each (identical to Gerd's copy), but Manuel's second copy has "MADE IN ENGLAND" on Side 1 and "MADE IN SPAIN" on Sides 2, 3 and 4! The "MADE IN ENGLAND" side is identical to the UK plain orange Side 1 label above. Lars M. Banke also has a copy of the same set with the UK sleeve and the "MADE IN SPAIN" labels. It too has a brown front sticker.

CBS S 88147 (Spain for UK) - detail of Side 1, scan by Manuel García Jara (first release, second copy "MADE IN ENGLAND")

The records of all three copies have handwritten matrix numbers: Side 1 - 88147-A, Side 2 - 88147-B, Side 3 - 88147-C, Side 4 - 88147-D. For a third release copy made in Spain for the UK market, see below.

Roger Billings has a copy of the first variant with all sides stated as "MADE IN SPAIN", where the sleeve has the "THE HISTORIC BASEMENT TAPES" front sticker and was printed in England by Shorewood. Record 1 contains Side 1 and Side 2 and has matrix numbers: Side 1 - 88147-A, Side 2 - 88147-C (crossed out) B. Record 2 contains Side 3 and Side 4 and has matrix numbers: Side 3 - 88147-D (crossed out) C, Side 4 - 88147-B (crossed out) D. Each matrix number is followed by a tiny circle containing the letter "A".

CBS 88147 (UK), 1975-76 (third release):


CBS 88147 (UK) - front of gatefold sleeve, scan by Gerd Rundel (third release - no CBS logo)
The gatefold sleeve of this copy from Gerd Rundel was printed in England like Manuel's and has the CBS logo on the rear of the sleeve at top right, not like mine where the CBS logo is on the front at top left.  The record labels are the same as mine except that they have the text "RECORD 1/2 OF A 2 RECORD SET" missing. The record matrix numbers are again the same as mine. It's possible both copies were circulating simultaneously.

CBS 88147 (Spain for UK), 1975-76 (third release):


CBS S 88147 (Spain for UK) - front scan by Manuel García Jara (third release)

This third release also exists in a variation made in Spain for the UK  market, the copy shown was bought new in Leeds in Jan 1976. The sleeve was made in England and has rear text "Interpak II by Shorewood Packaging Co Ltd England" as above. It did not have a front sticker. The inside of the gatefold sleeve is identical to the first release Spain for UK copy shown above. The records have orange/yellow CBS labels with "MADE IN SPAIN". They have handwritten matrix numbers: Side 1 - 88147-A, Side 2 - 88147-IV, Side 3 - 88147-C IV, Side 4 - 88147-D IV. The label design is different from both the UK orange/yellow copies above and the orange/yellow Spanish labels below. For first release copies made in Spain for the UK market, see above.

CBS S 88147/CBS S 80917 (UK) - Side 1 (Side 1 of record 1), scan by Gerd Rundel (fourth release)

Both Graham Sullivan and Gerd Rundel have what must be a fourth release copy of this album. The sleeve is the same as for the third release copy above. It is also an "Interpak II by Shorewood Packaging Co Ltd England" like Manuel García Jara's first release copy with plain orange labels and Gerd Rundel's third release copy above. The inside layout is the same as my copy. This copy has orange/yellow CBS record labels with a different text layout than mine. The record labels have the "LC|0149" capsule which means they date from the late 1970s, also they still have "MADE IN ENGLAND" at the bottom of the labels, later moved to the circumference text. Again Side 1 is paired with Side 4 on Record 1 and Side 2 is paired with Side 3 on Record 2. Gerd's copy has matrix numbers: Side 1 - CBS-S-80917-A2 (handwritten), 88147-A2 (handwritten), Side 2 - CBS-S-88147-C1 (stamped), 80918-A1 (stamped), Side 3 - CBS-S-80918-B2 (handwritten), 88147-D (handwritten), Side 4 - 80917-B1 (stamped), CBS-S-88147-B1 (stamped).

This release has the same sleeve as listed for the third and fourth releases above. Again Side 1 paired is with Side 4 and Side 2 paired with Side 3. The record labels have the "LC|0149" capsule at high top right and no bottom text. "MADE IN ENGLAND" is now in the circumference text to the right of the centre hole. The record matrix numbers are the same as for the fourth late 1970s release above.

CBS S 88147/CBS S 80917 (UK) - Side 1 (Side 1 of record 1), scan by Gerd Rundel (sixth release)

This is a very late 1970s copy. The gatefold sleeve is again the same as for the listed 1975-1976 copy and the first late 1970s copy above but the orange/yellow CBS record labels have a different text layout from the labels of the first late 1970s copy:

  • no arrows below "STEREO" to the left of the centre hole

  • the "LC|0149" capsule is below speed "33⅓ RPM" to the right of the centre hole

  • there is no space above “(P) 1975 CBS Inc.” to the right of the centre hole

  • CBS copyright info is now printed at the bottom of the labels and "MADE IN ENGLAND" has been moved to the circumference text on the right

Side 1 is again paired with Side 4 and Side 2 paired with Side 3. The matrix numbers are the same as for the fourth release late 1970s copy listed above. I assume there is a very early 1980s release with orange/yellow CBS labels like this but with the CBS copyright info in the circumference.

CBS 88147 (NL) - front with sticker, scan by Sergio Mariano Romay

Surprisingly these albums both have an identical gatefold sleeve to the UK first pressing printed in Holland, identical to my UK copy (see above). Patrick Helfrich sent scans of his 1980s copy with details from the sleeve, but they are again identical. The record sides are also ordered like the UK pressing. The 1975 records have orange/yellow CBS labels similar to the UK ones above. The records of Patrick Helfrich's 1975 copy have matrix numbers (all handwritten): Side 1 - 88147 - A II, Side 2 - 88147 - B II, Side 3 - 88147 - C II, Side 4 - 88147 - D II.

Manuel García Jara has a copy of the 1975 Dutch release sold in France with a French front sticker.

CBS 88147 (NL) - spine of gatefold sleeve, scan by Sergio Mariano Romay

The front of Sergio Mariano Romay's copy has a big sticker black with white letters, the same as the one on the US export copy above, and as printed on the Greek copy below. The matrix numbers (all handwritten) are: Side 1 - 88147-A IV, Side 2 - 88147-B, Side 3 - 88147-C, Side 4 - 88147-D II. All four sides also have “H” inside a circle, handwritten too.

The 1980s records have red 1980s style CBS labels without the star next to the side numbers. The matrix numbers of teh copy shown are: Side 1 - 88147 - A IV (handwritten), Side 2 - 01 88147 20 4B1 (stamped), Side 3 - 01 88147 20 2C1 (stamped), Side 4 - 01 88147 20 4D1 (stamped).

As there is a 1990s stereo cassette release with the new catalogue number "466137 4" there may also have been a 1990s stereo 2LP release with catalogue number "466137 1" - scans required.

Thanks to Patrick Helfrich, Sergio Mariano Romay and Manuel García Jara for information and scans of the 1980s copy.

This two cassette set must be the last Dutch release of this album because it was made by Columbia, not by CBS. The two cassettes are separate with folded inserts with the track list on the inside of each. The set includes a separate folded insert with liner notes by Greil Marcus in the same typeface as on the inside of the gatefold sleeve of the vinyl release. The same text is printed on both sides. The cassette are clear plastic with red Columbia paper labels.

Manuel García Jara is proud to provide this very rare Spanish release with orange record labels and promo insert. It disproves assertions on some web-sites that the last Dylan album with orange labels published in Spain was Blood On The Tracks. Apart from the mono release of John Wesley Harding by Discophon, this edition with orange labels and promo insert could be the rarest Dylan album released in Spain! Although this album is not a promotional release as such (it has no promo stamp, sticker or white labels), it was made to send to radio stations and music journalists (similar to Blood on the Tracks with orange labels and insert) .The commercial album below was released simultaneously with orange/yellow labels. The front sleeve has the CBS logo on top left corner. The rear also has a CBS logo. The inner gatefold has the Spanish translation of the text by Greil Marcus, titles in English and credits in Spanish. It also has a printer credit of Offset ALG, Madrid. Although the rear of the gatefold sleeve has Spanish text, text in English below it has been obscured, including "Printed in Holland"!

The most interesting part of this album is the insert printed on pale yellow paper: eight pages written by the Spanish rock journalist Jesús Ordovás, who wrote the first Dylan biography in Spanish. This insert reproduces an article published in the Spanish rock magazine "Disco Express" on 12 Sep 1975. The front of the insert is illustrated with images of the sleeve and it has the title "BIOGRAFÍAS DE DISCOS CBS: BOB DYLAN "THE BASEMENT TAPES". The insert is reproduced in full here.

The album is made to be played on an automatic record changer, so Side 1 is paired with Side 4, and Side 2 with Side 3 as the UK and Dutch releases above.  The records shown have matrix numbers: Side 1 - 88147A, Side 2 - 88147C, Side 3 - 88147D, Side 4 - 88147B.

This rare second edition was released in 1975, after the promotional release with the 8-page insert and before the more common edition with orange/yellow labels. The outer sleeve has the usual round sticker of all double albums released by CBS in Spain in 1975 with "Album 2 Discos - Precio Especial" [Double Album - Special Price]". The value of this album is much greater if it still has all its original elements:

The inner gatefold sleeve is identical to the previous release. While the first release had Sides 1 & 4 on Record 1 and Sides 2 & 3 on Record 2, this release has Sides 1 & 2 on Record 1 and Sides 3 & 4 on Record 2. The record labels are plain orange with a different design from that of the first release: "Bob Dylan & The Band" is on two lines, and other details are also different. Despite the belief of some Spanish commentators that this album never was released with orange labels, there are actually two different Spanish editions with orange labels!

CBS S 88147 (Spain), 1975 - third release (orange/yellow labels):


CBS S 88147 (Spain) - rear scan by Manuel García Jara (third release)
The third release of the album came into record stores in Oct 1975. It entered the Spanish album charts on 13 Oct 1975 and reached the #12 position on 19 Jan 1976, remaining in the charts for 22 weeks.

It has the same gatefold sleeve except for the round sticker on rear with the text "Album 2 Discos - Precio Especial" [Double Album - Special Price]". Only the rear of the gatefold sleeve is shown, the rest is identical. This version does not have the promotional insert. The record labels are orange/yellow. Record #1 has Sides 1 and 2; Record #2, Sides 3 and 4. There is a misprinted song title on Side 4: "This Whell's On Fire".  The records have matrix numbers: Side 1 - 88147A, Side 2 - 88147 IV B, Side 3 - 88147 IV C, Side 4 - 88147 IV D.

Lars M. Banke has a copy of the third release with the same gatefold sleeve as before, but without the "Album 2 Discos/Precio Especial" sticker. The orange/yellow CBS labels, however, have several differences from Manuel's copy:

This is the original cassette release from 1975 with the first Discos CBS address in Spain, Calle Princesa 1, Madrid-13, printed on the inside, and with the first Spanish cassette design (insert with two panels, orange CBS paper labels) - this design was used until the late 1970s. As usual in Spain, double albums were released on two separate cassettes but they were not sold separately. Tape #1 of this nice set has the front of the vinyl gatefold sleeve, while tape #2 has the rear of the gatefold sleeve. The inside of both inserts are the same. The Side 4 paper label of this copy is distinctly skewed!

Bob Dylan/The Band - "The Basement Tapes" - stereo 2LP set, CBS 88147 (Greece), late 1970s/early 1980s:


CBS 88147 (Greece) - front scan by Manuel García Jara

This 2LP set with gatefold sleeve was made in Greece in the late 1970s or early 1980s. The outside of the gatefold sleeve has the CBS logo on front and a big brown panel (part of the graphics, not a sticker) with the tracklist. The front also has Greek text in a circle (translation is "Special Price", not "Nice Price", "2 Records") It seems like a sticker but it is again part of the graphics. The rear of the outer gatefold sleeve has another CBS logo and a sticker of a record shop of Athens. The inside of the gatefold sleeve is brown monochrome with catalogue number "88147" above and the text "Produced in Greece for CBS Records of Greece S.A." at bottom. The record labels are orange/yellow and they are almost identical to the Dutch labels, even having the logo of the Dutch copyright organisation "BIEM". There are two record label variants, the second has small Greek text ("DESIGNED IN GREECE") as the last line of text to the left of the centre hole, on the first variant this is missing.

This is the very rare Israeli release of this album - this is not only the first release but the only release of this double album in Israel. It has a very noticeable sleeve and must be the only worldwide first release of a Dylan double album with a single, not a gatefold sleeve. In other countries, like in Spain, some double albums were reissued in the late 1980s with a single sleeve, but never on first release. This single sleeve is so narrow that it's better to keep the records outside the sleeve to avoid damage. There is no printer information but, for some reason, CBS sleeves made in Israel in the period 1973-75 have a lower quality than others made before or after: they are not laminated and made of fragile cardboard. It has "Bob Dylan & The Band" printed (not a sticker) on the front in unique blue slanted lettering; there is also a sticker with the text "SPECIALLY PRICED 2-RECORD SET": this album must have been sold at a special price because it did not have a gatefold sleeve. The rear sleeve is also unique: it is white with the tracklist, credits and the notes by Greil Marcus from the inner gatefold sleeve of other releases. The record sides are arranged regularly: Record #1 has Sides 1 and 2 and Record #2 has Sides 3 and 4, but the matrix numbers belong to a set with the usual arrangement at this time: Record #1 (Sides 1 and 4) and Record #2 (Sides 2 and 3). The records have plain orange CBS labels and the labels of Record #1 are correctly printed, but the labels of Record #2 are printed badly off-centre. The records of the copy shown have matrix numbers: Side 1 - PAL 33183-1G, Side 2 - PAL 33184-1G, Side 3 - PBL 33184-1F, Side 4 - PBL 33183-1G.

The gatefold sleeve of both releases is similar to the UK release except for the catalogue number and publishing details (see below). The publishing details on the rear of the 1975 gatefold sleeve look as if they are on a sticker. The 1975 release has a six-page folded insert which includes the lyrics in English and Japanese plus the liner notes by Greil Marcus translated into Japanese.

The arrangement of the tracks on the records is the same as the UK pressing.

The records of the first release copy shown have matrix numbers: Record 1, Side A - SOPJ-120A1 (Side 1), Record 1, Side B - SOPJ-120B1 (Side 4), Record 2, Side A - SOPJ-121A2 (Side 2), Record 2, Side B - SOPJ-121B2 (Side 3).

The 1978 release has a eight-page folded insert. Both the 1975 and 1978 inserts have pale text that I have darkened to make it more readable.

Bob Dylan/The Band - "The Basement Tapes" - stereo 2LP set, CBS S2BP 220171 (CBS SBP 234709/234710) (Australia), Jul 1975, re-released late 1970s (twice):


CBS S2BP 220171 (Australia) - front scan by Peter Lindberg (first release)

This set is essentially the same as the UK set - the sleeve is fully laminated and the record sides are again ordered for autochanger record players, numbered CBS SBP 234709 (Sides 1 and 4) and CBS SBP 234710 (Sides 2 and 3). The records of  the first release of this album had plain orange CBS labels with the album title and artists name on one line. Matrix numbers "MX176015" - "MX176018" are printed just above "THE BAND".

Early Australian release labels (as 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 Dylan records were manufactured by the Australian Record Company (Pty) Ltd. (A.R.C.) on behalf of CBS. A.R.C. changed its name to CBS Records Australia Limited on 17 Oct 1977, and after that date the longer bottom edge text includes the CBS copyright information. (Stuart Moore says that the label change may not have occurred till late 1978 or early 1979, Bob Dylan At Budokan from 1978 still does not have a CBS copyright nor does Masterpieces, Slow Train Coming from 1979 does have the CBS copyright.)

The record labels of the second release shown have orange/yellow CBS labels (Desire in 1976 was the first Australian Dylan album to have these labels on initial release) with the shorter copyright text. The album title and artists name are again on one line, and matrix numbers "MX176015" - "MX176018" are again printed just above "THE BAND". The third release shown has a blue sticker on the front of the gatefold sleeve with white text "2 RECORD SET SPECIAL LOW PRICE". The record sides are now arranged conventionally with Sides 1 and 2 on Record 1 (CBS 234709) and Sides 3 and 4 on Record 2 (CBS 234710)! The record labels of the third release shown have different orange/yellow CBS labels, still with the shorter copyright text. The album title and artists name are now on two lines, "MX176015" is now printed just below "(P) 1975" to the right of the centre hole and "STEREO" is much more visible to the left of the centre hole.

Scans of any later release with orange/yellow labels and the longer copyright text required!

Bob Dylan/The Band - "The Basement Tapes" - stereo cassette releases, CBS 2PC 171 (Australia), 1975:

BasementTapesAusCasFront.jpg (71167 bytes)
CBS 2PC 171 (Australia) - cassette insert scan by Stuart Moore (first and second releases)
The insert for the first two releases is a single card with just the track listing and an "Anytime Sound" list of current CBS Australia cassette releases, the reverse is blank. The first two cassettes are light grey with white labels. The only difference between the two cassettes are three raised buttons on the second, at top left, top right and bottom centre.

The insert for the third release is a shorter card, with the "Anytime Sound" listing on the inside, showing different albums. The cassette is still light grey, but this time it has blue text printed directly on to it, there are no paper labels.

Bob Dylan/The Band - "The Basement Tapes" - stereo 2LP set, CBS ASF-T 1850/1 (South Africa), 1975:


CBS ASF-T 1850/1 (South Africa) - front scan by Manuel García Jara

Like all previous South African albums with orange labels, this rare 2LP set with gatefold sleeve was made by CBS itself and distributed by Gramophone Record Co. (Pty.) Ltd., part of EMI. (Only the reissues and new albums with orange/yellow labels were made by Gramophone Record Co.) The outside of the gatefold sleeve is laminated with the album details and tracklist printed on the front, not a sticker. The rear has the CBS and Interpak logos. The inside of the gatefold sleeve is standard. The records come in printed CBS inner sleeves, also made by Interpak, the same for both records, with details of contemporary albums released in South Africa including Blood On The Tracks.

The records have plain orange CBS labels, both numbered "ASF-T.1850/1". The records of the copy shown have matrix numbers: Side 1- ASFT 1850 - AL 33683, Side 2 - ASFT 1850 - BL 33683, Side 3 - ASFT 1851 - AL 33684, Side 4 - ASFT 1851 - BL 33684

Bob Dylan/The Band - "The Basement Tapes" - stereo 2LP set, CBS/Suzy Records 88147 (Yugoslavia), 1976 (twice), re-released 1982:

CBS/Suzy Records 88147 (Yugoslavia), 1976 (twice):


CBS/Suzy Records 88147 (Yugoslavia) - front of gatefold sleeve, scan by Manuel García Jara (both 1976 releases)

The first pressing was released in 1976 by Suzy Records of Zagreb (now Croatia) on behalf of CBS. The records were pressed in Yugoslavia by Jugoton, also of Zagreb. Note the number "19376" on Sides 1, 2 and 3 and "24376" on side 4 in addition to the matrix numbers: these are the pressing dates - 19 Mar 1976 for Sides 1-3 and 24 Mar 1976 for Side 4. The record labels have the "SAKOJ" logo and "STRANA" instead of "SIDE".

CBS/Suzy Records 88147 (Yugoslavia) - Side 4 scan by Manuel García Jara (second 1976 release - Record 2, Side 1)

Although the first release records are labelled Side 1 and Side 2 on Record 1, and Side 3 and Side 4 on Record 2 in the tracklist order as stated on the inner gatefold, Record 1 actually plays Sides 1 and 4, and Record 2 plays sides 2 and 3, ordered for an auto-change record player (the side numbers have been corrected by pen). The copy shown has matrix numbers: Side 1 - ULS 198-1 ZP 19376, Side 2 - ULS 198-2 ZP 19376, Side 3 - ULS 199-1 ZP 19376, Side 4 - ULS 199-2 ZP 24376.

The second release shown must also have been released in 1976: Record 1 still has "SAKOJ" on the labels but Record 2 has "SOKOJ" ("SAKOJ" became "SOKOJ" during 1976). The sleeve is identical to the first album shown. This album plays the tracklist as stated on the labels, Sides 1-4. The records again have orange/yellow CBS labels and the copy shown has matrix numbers: Side 1 - ULS 198-1, Side 2 - ULS 198-2, Side 3 - ULS 199-1, Side 4 - ULS 199-2. The record sides are labelled "SIDE 1", "SIDE 2" (the "SAKOJ" labels) and "Side 3" and "Side 4" (the "SOKOJ" labels).

CBS/Suzy Records 88147 (Yugoslavia), 1982:


CBS/Suzy Records 88147 (Yugoslavia) - front scan by Lars M. Banke (1982 release)

This third release from 1982 has the same gatefold sleeve as before but the records now have "SOKOJ" on all labels. The records of Manuel's copy are now correctly labelled: Sides 1 and 2 on Record 1, and Sides 3 and 4 on Record 2, but surprisingly Record 1 plays Sides 1 and 3, while Record 2 plays Sides 4 and 2 (see matrix numbers)! The record labels are different from both 1976 releases with some mistakes: Side 1 track 1 - Odds And Ends is credited to E. Dylan; track 5 - Goin'To Acapulco; Side 2 track 1 - Lo And Berold!; track 5 - Please, Mts. Henry; track 6 - Tears Of Rage credited to S. Dylan! The records of Manuel's copy have matrix numbers: Side 1 - 88147-A1-S1, Side 2 - 88147-C1-S1 (Side 3's matrix number), Side 3 - 88147-D1-S1 (Side 4's matrix number), Side 4 - 88147-B1-S1 (Side 2's matrix number).

CBS/Suzy Records 88147 (Yugoslavia) - Side 4 scan by Manuel García Jara (1982 release - Record 2, Side 2, but actually plays Side 2!)

Lars M. Banke has another copy with the same sleeve and record labels (with the same mistakes) where the record sides are equally confusing - Record 1 has the labels for Sides 1 and 4, but plays Sides 1 and 2, while Record 2 has the labels for Sides 2 and 3, but plays Sides 3 and 4. The records of this copy have matrix numbers: Side 1 - 88147 A 1 S 1, Side 2 - 88147 B 1 S 1 (Record 1); Side 3 - 88147 C 1 S 1, Side 4 - 88147 D 1 S 1 (Record 2).

This release from the former Yugoslavia was manufactured and distributed by Suzy Records in Zagreb (now in Croatia) on behalf of CBS Records, and comes as two separate cassettes. The first cassette insert has black lettering on a yellow background and the second cassette insert has the opposite.  The cassettes are black with yellow paper labels and black text. There are several mistakes in the song titles on the outside and inside of the inserts and the cassette labels.

Tape 1: "Goin'To Acapulco" (outside and inside of insert; correct on label); "Lo And Berold!" (outside and inside of insert plus cassette label); "Please, Mts. Henry" (outside and inside of insert plus cassette label); "Yazoo Street Soandal" (cassette label only).

Tape 2: "Crash On The Levere" (outside of insert only)

This original CD release came in a double-width jewel case. CD1 is CK 33683. CD2 is CK 33684. The first copies came in a "long box", for a picture of the spine, see here. The insert is a 12-page booklet replicating the original liner notes, with the foldout photo from the LP reproduced only in black and white.

Bob Dylan/The Band - "The Basement Tapes" - remastered 2CD set release, Digipak release: Columbia/Sony Music 88697082292 (Austria for Europe), 30 Mar 2009; Jewel case release: Columbia/Sony Music 88697347082 (Austria for Europe), 30 Mar 2009:
There must have been a US release of this remastered set - catalogue number and scans required!


Columbia/Sony Music 88697082292 (Austria for Europe) - front of digipak with sticker (my copy)

The limited edition of this release remastered by Steve Berkowitz comes in a double digipak which will be replaced by a standard 2CD jewel case when reprinted. The front of the digipak has a release-specific limited edition yellow sticker with black text. There is a 12-page stapled booklet. Both the digipak and the booklet have new pictures. The CDs themselves have the Columbia US 1970s record label design. The only difference between the CDs in the digipak and jewel case releases is the catalogue number.

Thanks to Tom Willems for scans of the jewel case release.

This massive set is the latest in a series of "Complete Columbia Album Collections" featuring artists such as Miles Davis, Charlie Mingus, Duke Ellington, Dave Brubeck and even Blue Oyster Cult. The CD version of the set includes 41 Dylan albums in card sleeves, 14 of which have been remastered for this project, plus a 2CD set of previously released non-album tracks entitled Side Tracks. The albums exclude all compilations and The Bootleg Series sets, but do include the deleted 1973 Dylan album, also see 1973, and the extra 2CD set Side Tracks includes one side of the 1971 single George Jackson (Acoustic version), R-0085, see 1971. The set is therefore listed in 2013. The set also includes a hard cover book with extensive new liner notes and previously unseen photos.

All the CDs come in card sleeves. The Basement Tapes comes in a folded card sleeve with the pockets for the CDs on the inside centre. The European sleeves are made of thicker card than the US sleeves, but they are otherwise identical, so are not shown. The catalogue number on the sleeve is "88691924312JK17" plus "DISCS 19&20". The CDs are different in detail, the US The Basement Tapes CDs have catalogue numbers "88691924312D19" and "88691924312D20", whereas the European CDs have catalogue numbers "88691924312-19" and "88691924312-20". The European CDs were made in the EU (probably Austria). The US and European copyright details are printed at the bottom of the Bob Dylan CDs, and round the circumference for The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan onwards, so I haven't shown them for the later CDs.

For more details of the set, see International Album Releases (Multi-Packs) 2010s.
