Street-Legal (1978)

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 stereo 2LP set: CBS/Sony 40AP 1100/01 (Japan), 21 Aug 1978/Columbia PC2-36067 (USA), Apr 1979.
This live album, recorded at the Nippon Budokan in Tokyo, Japan, on 28 Feb 1978 and 1 Mar 1978, was intended to be a Japan-only release but so many copies were being imported by Dylan fans elsewhere that it was given a worldwide release.

The sleeve and booklet photographs are by Joel Bernstein and Hirosuke Katsuyama. The liner notes in Japanese are in two parts: Part 1 is a 1978 Japanese tour 1978 review by critic Eiji Ogura and Part 2 is the story of the process of making the album by Heckel Sugano who worked for CBS/Sony Japan at the time. This includes: meeting Don Devito, the recorded shows were 28 Feb plus 1 and 2 Mar, the total tapes were as long as 5 hours, and mixing the tapes in Apr 1978 by engineer Tomoo "Tom" Suzuki, selecting photos with Teruhisa Tajima for the outer and inner gatefold sleeve. (Tom & Teru also did Miles Davis' live in Japan album Agharta & Pangaea).

Also shown is a copy owned by Wil Gielen of the tour book sold at the Japanese 1978 shows. The copy has been signed by Bob on Page 5. Wil has passed on these comments from the seller:

"We think that the tour book belonged to Shibuya Youichi who was the editor of "Rockin' On" magazine, and a well known music writer here in Japan.

There is no proof (no letter of authenticity etc) but the book – and others from the same era - was bought by the original seller directly from the office of "Rockin' On" who were clearing out some of their accumulated items. Other items belonging to Shibuya Youichi were included in this batch of items, his name & notes were included on some tour books that they offered (not this one though) and so we agreed that it’s most likely that they were originally his items. The original seller is a big and well known collectors store in Jinboucho in Tokyo, in the main book selling area of Tokyo and in the area where many music magazines have offices – so it is normal that they can buy items like this and I think we can believe the background information.

 

The other reason why I believe these details is because in Japan it is very hard for "ordinary people" and fans to get any access to artists, in Japan security and venues are very strict indeed. For an artist as big as Bob Dylan, I think only music business people would have the chance to receive an autograph directly.

 

As I said, we have no proof or documentation except what we are told, and I have seen the other Shibuya Youichi tour books from the same era so in my mind it is likely to be true. And of course, I would not buy a signed item from any source – only ones that I trusted, and who have access to such items.

 

I don’t know the exact date of the signature though – almost certainly it was signed in Tokyo (the Budokan is about five minutes walk from the collectors store and music magazine offices in Jinboucho)."

Vinyl and Tape Releases: 1978 (Japan, Australia, New Zealand only)


"Bob Dylan At Budokan" - 2LP promo/commercial releases, CBS/Sony 40AP 1100/01 (Japan), 21 Aug 1978:


CBS/Sony 40AP 1100/01 (Japan) - front with obi, picture from eil.com

The album was released in Japan in Aug 1978, and in Australia/New Zealand later in 1978, but not until Apr 1979 in the rest of the world. Hans Seegers informs me there was a counterfeit release available in Italy soon after the Japanese release, distinguishable only by the catalogue number.

As well as the regular booklet and poster (see below for my scans from the UK release), there is a magnificent gold, red, white and black obi, which has Bob's then album catalogue on the reverse.

Both the Australian and New Zealand releases have the same gatefold sleeve, poster and inner sleeves, presumably all made in Australia. The Australian release has a front sticker with "Recorded Live in Japan". The artwork is the same as the UK release and it includes the large poster, this time with the Australian/New Zealand catalogue number. The records for both releases are in picture inner sleeves and have orange/yellow CBS labels. The Australian records are numbered SBP 237313 and SBP 237314 and were made in Australia, the New Zealand records are numbered S2BP 220211, have the text placed differently and were made in New Zealand. Stuart Moore has a promo copy of the first Australian release in exactly the packaging as the commercial release, but with "PROMOTION ONLY NOT FOR SALE" printed on the record labels.

Stuart Moore's later Australian copy has the same sleeve but different record labels with longer CBS copyright info along the bottom circumference, as with other Australian vinyl releases, see the comments below.

Early Australian release labels 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. 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. Despite the fact that the first release of this album was in 1978, the first release labels still have the shorter text. The later release labels have the longer text. (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 (see 1978). Slow Train Coming from 1979 does have the CBS copyright.)

"Bob Dylan At Budokan" - promo/commercial stereo 2LP set, Columbia PC2 36067 (USA for Sweden), Apr 1979:


Columbia PC2 36067 (USA for Sweden) - front scan by Manuel García Jara

This US copy bought in Sweden has "Columbia" still visible on the spine, but the Columbia logo at rear bottom right is covered by a sticker with "SKIV GROSSISTEN [RECORD WHOLESALERS]" (in two words). The rear sleeve has a gold embossed promo stamp, identical to the one on Stuart Moore's US promo copy above. The record labels have red ring-shaped stickers with the text "SKIVGROSSISTEN" now in one word in yellow. The records of this copy have matrix numbers: Side 1: AL-36068-2B (stamped), Side 2: BL 36068-2B (handwritten), Side 3: AL 36069-2A (handwritten), Side 4: BL-36069-2B (stamped).

Lars M. Banke says: "The sticker “Skivgrossisten” indicates that it is put on the label by the wholesale company that imports these records and sells them to retail shops. Why this wholesale company found it necessary to put the sticker on the discs, I do not know. Also I do not know why this one was not “stickered” like the other export copies – with CBS stickers or “neutral” stickers. The company “Skivgrossisten” was located in Skövde in Central Sweden and ceased trading in 2008. The purpose of the company was to “do retail business with music-related products like phonograms and other business in accordance herewith” [my translation]. A bit funny that it mentions retail business as the purpose when the name indicates wholesale business. “Skivgrossisten” was also in the 1970s the name of a (retail) record shop in Drottningsgatan in Stockholm. In fact it was a chain with three shops – mainly selling so-called “cut-out” LPs. So perhaps it is more likely that it was this “Skivgrossisten” shop who has put the sticker on the “Budokan” album? Or perhaps “Skivgrossisten” was one single company, meaning that the (mother) company in Skövde owned the three shops in Stockholm?"

Lars has copies of John Wesley Harding and Street-Legal bought in Sweden with the same “Skivgrossisten” stickers on the sleeve and record labels.

Columbia PC2 36067 (Canada for export) - detail of rear, scan by Lars M. Banke (copies 2 and 3 below)

Patrick Helfrich's copy of the Canadian release was exported to Europe and every instant of "Columbia" on the gatefold sleeve has been covered by a black sticker (even on the spine), while the labels have been pasted over completely with red stickers also omitting the Columbia name (one sticker has been removed by a previous owner showing the regular Columbia Canada label). Patrick's copy has the extra text in English and French in black at bottom right front as does Lars M. Banke's first export copy (copy 2 below).

Columbia PC2 36067 (Canada for export) - copies 2-3:


Columbia PC2 36067 (Canada for export) - front scan by Lars M. Banke (copy 2 with text at bottom right)

Lars M. Banke has two further export copies that were bought in Sweden. They both have gold stickers covering the Columbia logo on the rear of the gatefold sleeve at bottom right and gold ring-shaped stickers on the record labels covering the circumference only.

This fourth Canada for export copy from Gerd Rundel comes in a gatefold sleeve like Lars M. Banke's second copy above (copy 3) without the extra text at front bottom right. “Columbia” is not covered on the gatefold sleeve. The records have white ring-shaped stickers on the labels. The records of this copy have handwritten matrix numbers: Side 1 - AL-36068-1A-2HZD:, Side 2 - BL-36068-1A-2HZD:, Side 3 - AL-36069-1A-2HDZ:, Side 4 - BL-36069-1A-2HDZ: (the last two letters ("DZ") on Sides 3 and 4 are swapped compared with Sides 1 and 2 ("ZD").

This time the sleeve has three black circular stickers over the Columbia logos on the sleeve (front, rear and spine). The records this time have black ring-shaped stickers on the labels.

This sixth Canada for export copy again comes from Lars M. Banke and was again bought in Sweden. It again has a gatefold sleeve like Lars' second copy above (copy 3) without the extra text at front bottom right. This time the sleeve has two instances of "Columbia" obscured on the rear with black marker pen. The record labels this time have the ring of Columbia logos obscured inexpertly with black marker pen, there are no ring-shaped stickers.

Columbia PC2 36067/ CBS/Sony COL 467850 1 (Canada for Spain) - detail of rear with spine sticker, scan by Lars M. Banke

This very unusual album was bought in Spain in the 1990s. It has the usual Canadian gatefold sleeve with the Columbia logos obscured by white stickers, one on the rear at bottom left, plus a wrap-around sticker on the spine that also shows on the front. It does not have the extra text in English and French in black at bottom right front. The records are the 1990s CBS/Sony Spanish release with red labels, made in Spain by Tecnodisco S.A. for Sony Music, without stickers as the two copies above. For the labels, see the 1990s Spanish release below.

Thanks to Lars M. Banke for information and scans.


"Bob Dylan At Budokan - stereo 2LP set, CBS 96004 (UK), Apr 1979, re-released later in 1979, early 1980s, mid-1980s, late 1980s:

CBS 96004 (UK) - detail of booklet rear ("CBS 96004" at bottom left, compare with booklet of later 1979 release and Dutch release below)

This album has sumptuous packaging for a UK release, with a black/white 16-page booklet with sleeve notes in Japanese (untranslated) and lyrics in English and Japanese. I've not been successful in finding an English translation of the sleeve notes on the Internet. The album's inner sleeve has the text: "The more I think about it, the more I realise what I left behind in Japan - my soul, my music and that sweet girl in the geisha house - I wonder does she remember me? If the people of Japan wish to know about me, they can hear this record - also they can hear my heart still beating in Kyoto at the Zen Rock Garden. Someday I will be back to reclaim it."

The booklet was reprinted for the UK and has the UK catalogue number "CBS 96004". There is also a large fold-out poster, which again has the CBS logo and "96004" in the bottom right hand corner. The records have orange/yellow CBS labels and two catalogue numbers - on the left is "S CBS 96004" (both records) and on the right is "S CBS 83691 (40AP 1100 A/B)" (Record 1) or "S CBS 83692 (40AP 1101 A/B)" (Record 2). The record set numbering "Record 1/2 of a 2 Record Set" is printed above the album title. "BOB DYLAN" does not appear except in the album title (in all the releases below except the first the name appears twice). "MADE IN ENGLAND" is at the bottom of the labels. The matrix numbers of my copy are: Side 1 - 96004-A3, S-CBS-83691-A3, BOB (all handwritten), Side 2 - CBS-S-96004-B4, 83691-B4 (both handwritten), Side 3 - CBS-S-83692-A6, 96004-C6 (both handwritten), Side 4 - 96004-D3, CBS-S-83692-B3 (both handwritten).

S CBS 96004 (UK), second 1979 release:


S CBS 96004 (UK) - Side 1 scan by Gerd Rundel (second 1979 release)

S CBS 96004 (UK) - detail of Side 1, scan by Gerd Rundel (second 1979 release - these are the only UK labels with "S CBS 96004" to the right of the centre hole!)

S CBS 96004 (UK) - Side 3 scan by Gerd Rundel (second 1979 release)

S CBS 96004 (UK) - Side 4 scan by Gerd Rundel (second 1979 release)

Gerd Rundel has a previously unlisted UK Budokan copy with a label variant that must be a second release. The gatefold sleeve, booklet and poster are the same as for my copy. The record labels have a totally different layout from all listed copies and I suspect they may have been printed by a different company:

The record set numbering and the missing “BOB DYLAN” below the album title indicates that this is the second release (only this copy and mine don't have the second “BOB DYLAN”). On the Side 3 label all text is positioned much higher than on the other labels. "MADE IN ENGLAND" is at the bottom of the labels. The records of the copy shown have handwritten matrix numbers: Side 1 - 96004-A2, CBS-S-83691-A2, Side 2 - CBS-S-96004-B4, 83691-B4, Side 3 - CBS-S-96004-C5, 83692-A5, Side 4 - CBSS-83692-B5, CBSS-96004-D.

CBS 96004 (UK), later 1979 release:


CBS 96004 (UK) - front of gatefold sleeve (my copy)

Gerd Rundel's slightly later copy has a CBS/Sony sleeve which was printed in Holland. The front is the same as mine, but the rear has codes "CB|252" and "63" in a circle below the Side 4 tracklist, "LC|0149" in a capsule next to the CBS/Sony logo. Gerd's copy has a booklet but does not come with a poster, although this may have been lost. The rear of the booklet has only “96004” in the lower left corner while my booklet has “CBS 96004” in the same position. The record labels have a different orange/yellow design from mine with the text elements to the left and right of the centre hole arranged differently. This copy still has "MADE IN ENGLAND" at the bottom of the labels. Patrick Helfrich has an identical copy with the same record labels.

CBS 96004 (UK) - detail of booklet rear, scan by Gerd Rundel (later 1979 release, just "96004" at bottom left, compare with booklet of my original 1979 release above and Dutch release below)

The records of Gerd's late 1979 copy have handwritten matrix numbers: Side 1 - 96004-A3, CBS-S-83691-A3, Side 2 - CBS-S-96004-B4, 83691-B4, Side 3 - CBS-S-96004-C5, 83692-A5, Side 4 - CBS-S-96004-D4, 83692-B4.

The early 1980s releases, still with orange/yellow CBS record labels, are very complicated!

CBS 96004 (UK), first early 1980s release:


S CBS 96004/CBS 83691 (UK) - Side 1 scan by Gerd Rundel (first early 1980s release)

This variant, probably from around 1980, comes in the same gatefold sleeve as my first release (i.e. printed in England, not Holland), with the booklet but without the poster, which may have just been lost. All the record labels still have “MADE IN ENGLAND” at the bottom but the catalogue number to the right of the centre hole is now just "CBS 83691/CBS 83692" (missing the “S”). The records of the copy shown have handwritten matrix numbers: Side 1 - 96004-A3, CBS-S-83691-A3, Side 2 - CBS-S-96004-B5, 83691-B5, Side 3 - CBS-S-83692-A6, 96004-C6, Side 4 - CBS-S-96004-D4, 83692-B4.


S CBS 96004/CBS 83691 (UK) - detail of Side 1, scan by Gerd Rundel (first early 1980s release, second early 1980s release is the same)


S CBS 96004/CBS 83691 (UK) - detail of Side 1, scan by Gerd Rundel (first early 1980s release, still with "MADE IN ENGLAND" at bottom)


S CBS 96004/CBS 83691 (UK) - Side 2 scan by Gerd Rundel (first early 1980s release)


S CBS 96004/CBS 83692 (UK) - Side 3 scan by Gerd Rundel (first early 1980s release)


S CBS 96004/CBS 83692 (UK) - Side 4 scan by Gerd Rundel (first early 1980s release)


S CBS 96004/CBS 83692 (UK) - detail of Side 3, scan by Gerd Rundel (first early 1980s release - compare with late 1979 release Side 3 label above)

CBS 96004 (UK), first early 1980s release (mixed labels copy):


S CBS 96004/S CBS 83692 (UK) - Side 3 scan by Gerd Rundel (first early 1980s release with mixed labels - same as later 1979 Side 3 label above)
Gerd also has a mixed labels copy with Sides 1, 2 and 4 the same as immediately above , but where the Side 3 label has "S CBS 83692" to the right of the centre hole (the same as the later 1979 variant above).


S CBS 96004/S CBS 83692 (UK) - detail of Side 3, scan by Gerd Rundel (first early 1980s release with mixed labels - same as later 1979 Side 3 label above)

CBS 96004 (UK), second early 1980s release:


S CBS 96004/S CBS 83691 (UK) - Side 1 scan by Gerd Rundel (second early 1980s release - same as first early 1980s release)

Gerd Rundel has what must be a later early 1980s copy. The gatefold sleeve is the same as my first release (i.e. printed in England, not Holland), again with the booklet but without the poster, which may again have just been lost. Like one of Gerd's first early 1980s releases above, it again has mixed record labels: the Side 1 label has “MADE IN ENGLAND” at the bottom and is the same as the listed first early 1980s copy – all the other labels have “MADE IN ENGLAND” in the circumference text to the right of the centre hole, but are without text at the bottom. (There must be a Side 1 label with this design.) The Sides 1 and 2 labels have "CBS 83691" and the Sides 3 and 4 labels have "CBS 83692" to the right of the centre hole (same as Sides 1, 2 and 4 of the previous copy). There may be a variant release with a Side 1 label with the same design as these Sides 2, 3 and 4 labels! The records of the copy shown have handwritten matrix numbers: Side 1 - 96004-A2, CBS-S-83691-A2, Side 2 - CBS-S-96004-B5, 83691-B5, Side 3 - CBS-S-83692-A6, 96004-C6, Side 4 - CBS-S-96004-D4, 83692-B4.


S CBS 96004/CBS 83691 (UK) - detail of Side 1, scan by Gerd Rundel (second early 1980s release, still with "MADE IN ENGLAND" at bottom, same as first early 1980s release)

S CBS 96004/S CBS 83691 (UK) - Side 2 scan by Gerd Rundel (second early 1980s release, Sides 3 and 4 have the same layout)

S CBS 96004/S CBS 83691 (UK) - detail of Side 2, scan by Gerd Rundel (second early 1980s release - no text at bottom)

S CBS 96004/S CBS 83691 (UK) - detail of Side 2, scan by Gerd Rundel (second early 1980s release - "MADE IN ENGLAND" now in circumference text)

S CBS 96004/S CBS 83692 (UK) - Side 3 scan by Gerd Rundel (second early 1980s release)

S CBS 96004/S CBS 83692 (UK) - Side 4 scan by Gerd Rundel (second early 1980s release)

CBS 96004 (UK), third early 1980s release:


S CBS 96004/S CBS 83691 (UK) - Side 1 scan by Gerd Rundel (third early 1980s release)

Gerd Rundel has what must be a even later early 1980s copy because it has the same text layout as his listed mid 1980s red CBS label release below. The CBS copyright info is now at the bottom (there was no text there on the previous release), while "MADE IN ENGLAND" is in the circumference text on the right as on the second early 1980s release Sides 2-4 labels. Apart from this the layout is also the same as that of the first and second 1980s copies above. The gatefold sleeve is the same as my first release. This copy did not have either the booklet or the poster when bought, but it may have had when new. The records of the copy shown have handwritten matrix numbers: Side 1 - 96004-A2, CBS-S-83691-A2, Side 2 - CBS-S-96004-B5, 83691-B5, Side 3 - CBS-S-83692-A6, 96004-C6, Side 4 - CBS-S-96004-D4, 83692-B4 (same as the second early 1980s release).

Gerd Rundel has a copy dating from after 1986 where the records have red CBS labels. The record labels all have "S CBS 96004" to the left of the centre hole and "CBS 83691" or "CBS 83692" to the right. The CBS copyright info is now at the bottom of the label and "MADE IN ENGLAND" has moved to the circumference text. The gatefold sleeve is the same as my original copy. This copy again did not have the booklet or poster when bought, but it may have had when new. The records have handwritten matrix numbers: Side 1 - 96004-A2, CBS-S-83691-A2, Side 2 - CBS-83691/96004-B6, Side 3 - CBS-96004-C8, 83692-A8, Side 4 - CBS-S-96004-D1, 83692-B1.

Gerd has another copy with red CBS labels which he believes is later. The record labels now have "S CBS 83691" or "S CBS 83692" to the right of the centre hole, and the CBS copyright info that was at the bottom of the labels is now in the circumference text. The gatefold sleeve is again the same as my copy. This copy again did not have the booklet or poster when bought, but it may have had when new. The handwritten matrix numbers are the same as for the listed mid 1980s copy.

Thanks to Patrick Helfrich and Gerd Rundel for information and scans.


"Bob Dylan At Budokan - stereo 2LP set, CBS 96004 (Ireland), Apr 1979:


CBS 96004 (Ireland) - Side 1 scan by Gerd Rundel (variant 1)

These rare Irish releases both come in the same gatefold sleeve as the UK release above, made by Shorewood Packaging Co. Ltd. The second copy also has the booklet and the large fold-out poster, although the first copy doesn't (these have probably just gone missing). The records were made in Ireland and have orange/yellow CBS labels.

CBS 96004 (Ireland) - Side 3 scan by Gerd Rundel (variant 2)

CBS 96004 (Ireland) - Side 4 scan by Gerd Rundel (variant 2)

The record labels of the first copy shown have both "Record mfd. in Ireland" and "MADE IN ENGLAND" at the bottom. The records of this first copy have handwritten matrix numbers: Side 1 - 96004-A2, CBS S 83691 A2, Side 2 - 96004-B3, CBS S 83691 B3, Side 3 - 96004-C2, CBS S 83692 A2, Side 4 - 96004-D3, CBS S 83692 B3.

The record labels of the second copy shown are identical but "MADE IN ENGLAND" is now missing - I assume this copy is later. The records of this second copy have different handwritten matrix numbers: Side 1 - CBS S 83691 A2, Side 2 - CBS S 83691 B3, Side 3 - CBS S 83692 A2, Side 4 - CBS S 83692 B3 (the "96004" numbers are missing).

CBS 40-96004 (UK) - outside of pack, scan by Manuel García Jara
The two cassettes are in cases with inserts mounted inside a special folded card pack. The buyer could send off for the booklet and poster that accompanied the 2LP set with a voucher on the inside of the insert of cassette 1. The cassettes are light grey with black text printed directly on to them, there are no paper labels. The Spanish two cassette release below has a slipcase with a similar design to this.

"Bob Dylan At Budokan" - single cassette release, CBS 40-96004 (UK?), 1985(?):

This single cassette release has a different running order from the LP version (side 1, side 3, side 2, side 4) and three tracks are missing from the tape (Ballad Of A Thin Man, One More Cup Of Coffee and Forever Young), even though the track listing and running order are listed on the insert as being exactly the same as the double LP. The running times of all the tracks as stated on the cassette insert are also different from the current CD, up to a difference of 40 seconds with The Times They Are A-Changin' - thanks to Ole Lien for information.

CBS 96004 (NL), Apr 1979:


CBS 96004 (NL) - front with sticker, scan by Patrick Helfrich (original release)

This set is the same as Gerd Rundel's second UK set with the exceptions illustrated. It has a sticker on the front of the gatefold sleeve and the same poster and booklet. The inside of the gatefold sleeve is the same as the UK set. The original release records have orange/yellow CBS labels and both the Dutch catalogue number CBS 96004 and the Japanese catalogue numbers 40-AP1100/1101 below in smaller text. The matrix numbers of the records of the copy shown are: Side 1 - 01-96004-2 A2, Side 2 - 01-96004-3B-1, Side 3 - 01-96004-3C-1, Side 4 - 01-96004-1D-2.

Gerd Rundel's copy does not have a front sticker, and comes without a booklet or poster (both may have been lost). The records have red CBS labels and those of the copy shown have stamped matrix numbers: Side 1 - 01-96004-2A-2, Side 2 - 01-96004-3B-1C, Side 3 - 01-96004-3C-2, Side 4 - 01-96004-4D-1.

This album was made in Spain for export to Holland. The gatefold sleeve was made in Spain, printed by Offset ALG, and the CBS address is Avenida del Generalísimo 25, Madrid-16 as for the Spanish release below. This sleeve is identical to the Spanish original sleeve, with text printed over some details of the Dutch sleeve as shown. It includes the poster and booklet, although there is no front sticker. The record labels have the same layout as the Dutch labels above including the "BIEM/STEMRA" Dutch copyright organisation logo, also the same as the first Holland for Germany set below, but they have "MADE IN SPAIN" in the circumference text. The records have matrix numbers identical to the first Spanish release: Side 1 - 96004 A, Side 2 - BL-36068-2A, Side 3 - AL-36069-2B, Side 4 - BL-36069-2G. This set could not have been sold in Spain because it does not have the "SGAE" logo or the Spanish "Depósito Legal" authorisation number as on the Spanish labels below.

CBS 96004 (East Germany) - front scan by Patrick Helfrich

This album was also released in the former German Democratic Republic (East Germany). The records of the East German set were manufactured at the Amiga pressing plant in Potsdam-Babelsberg (East Berlin) for sale in the East German Intershop "hard currency" shops. The set comes in the Dutch gatefold sleeve as above but without poster or booklet. The record labels have the German "GEMA" copyright organisation logo (unboxed) and "MADE IN GERMANY". Ronald Born's copy has stamped matrix numbers: Side 1 - 96 004 - 1A, Side 2 - 96 004 - 2A, Side 3 - 96 004 - 3A, Side 4 - 96 004 - 4A.

Hanns Peter Bushoff has an East German Amiga test pressing of Record 1 only. It comes in a plain white sleeve with a front sticker as shown dated 21 May 1980. The artist name and title are incorrectly written as "Bob Dylon: At The Bodukan". The record has white labels with the German text "Unverkäufliche Musterplatte [Disc Sample Not For Sale]", the catalogue number stamped in red, and the date "14 Mai 1980" stamped in black.

Intershop also sold East German pressed releases of Infidels, Down In The Groove and Dylan And The Dead. For an East German Amiga pressing of the Dutch 1966 version of Bob Dylan's Greatest Hits, see International Album Releases (Dylan-Only Compilations) 1960s.


CBS 96004 (NL for East? Germany) - front with sticker, scan by Manuel García Jara (first copy)
This is where the picture becomes very complicated! Manuel García Jara has two copies that come with a front sticker, poster and booklet. The sleeves were printed in Holland, and all the record labels have "MADE IN GERMANY". The first sticker is not the same as the Dutch sticker in one detail - the top text line has three stars instead of the word "LIVE".

The design of the record labels of the first copy is exactly the same as those of Patrick Helfrich's East German-pressed copy, but the records have matrix numbers as follows: Side 1 - 01-96004-2A-2, Side 2 - 01-96004-1B-2, Side 3 - 01-96004-3C-2, Side 4 - 01-96004-2D-1 plus "NL" stamped on each side. These are definitely Dutch matrix numbers (see above)! Hanns Peter Bushoff points out that the East German record labels have small recessed circles in the centre, while these labels have in addition a much wider recessed ring, like the Dutch labels above.

Manuel's second copy also comes with a front sticker, poster and booklet. The second sticker is now exactly the same as the Dutch sticker. There is also an owner's sticker from a collector in Hamburg in what was then West Germany (address and telephone details have been obscured to preserve privacy). All the record labels again have "MADE IN GERMANY", but this time there is an asterisk over the side number to the right of the centre hole. The records have matrix numbers as follows: Side 1 - 01-96004-1A-2, Side 2 - 01-96004-2B-1, Side 3 - 01-96004-2C-1, Side 4 - 01-96004-1D-1. No "NL" on each side, but still Dutch matrix numbers. The labels again have wide recessed rings.

Dag Braathen has a copy with a sticker, poster and booklet with variant 2 record labels (with asterisks). This copy has matrix numbers: Side 1 - 01-96004-2A-2, Side 2 - 01-96004-3B-1, Side 3 - 01-96004-3C-1, Side 4 - 01-96004-2D-1. "NL" stamped on each side of Record 2 only. These are again Dutch matrix numbers.

Ronald Born thinks that if these albums were made in Holland, as pointed to by the evidence, they would not have been sold in East Germany because of the cost in "hard currency".

Thanks to Ronald Born, Patrick Helfrich, Manuel García Jara and Hanns Peter Bushoff for information and scans.

CBS 96004 (Italy) - front of gatefold sleeve, scan by Manuel García Jara (1979 release)
This original release of this album in Italy has the UK catalogue number. The 2LP set with gatefold sleeve includes also the booklet and the poster. The rear sleeve has a small "CBS/Sony" logo at bottom right and a black printed panel, not a sticker, at bottom left with the text "CBS Dischi SpA Milano 1979 / Distribuzione CGD Messaggerie Musicali SpA Milano". The text "Printed in Holland" can still be seen to the right of it not completely obscured. The records have orange/yellow CBS labels and the copies shown have handwritten matrix numbers Side 1 - CI 96004-1L  28-5-79, Side 2 - CI 96004-2L  28-5-79, Side 3 - CI 96004-3L  28-5-79, Side 4 - CI 96004-4L  28-5-79. The text "MADE IN ITALY BY CBS" is not centred, but aligned as if the word "SUGAR" from previous Italian releases has been omitted. On these labels the recessed centre is much smaller than on the UK and Dutch record labels above.

Thanks to Manuel García Jara for information and scans.

"Bob Dylan At Budokan - reissue stereo 2LP set, CBS 96004 (Italy), 13 Oct 1987:
CBS stopped releasing vinyl albums in Italy in the early 1980s, Real Live was probably the last Dylan vinyl album to be released in Italy. For this reason, Italian albums of the late 1980s with red CBS labels are very scarce and they were published only as parts of series, for example Blood On The Tracks from the series "Il Rock" (1988). This 1987 2LP release could be also part of another series because the front of the gatefold sleeve has a big yellow sticker with Italian text in black "I Grandi Successi "Dal Vivo" Album Doppio" [Greatest Hits "Live" Double Album] This sticker also has the text "Disco TV. GLOBO Coordinamento per C. Benvenuti - F. Carraresi Jr." [TV Record. GLOBO Coordinated by C. Benvenuti - F. Carraresi Jr.) Globo is an Italian TV Channel and it could be the publisher of this series.

The rear of the gatefold sleeve now has a "CBS" logo at bottom right, although it still has "CBS/Sony" on the spine. The text at the bottom left rear of the gatefold sleeve is different from the first edition above, and there is no obscured Dutch text. The inner gatefold is identical.

"Bob Dylan At Budokan - stereo 2LP reissue set, CBS/Sony 467850 1 (Spain), 1991:
All Dylan albums for the CBS/Sony label were released in the last days of vinyl in Spain. For this reason, those albums were made in very limited quantities and, although they were sold in the "Nice Price" series, they often are the rarest and most expensive copies of each album to collect nowadays.


CBS/Sony 467850 1 (Spain) - front scan by Lars M. Banke
This album was bought in Spain in the 1990s. It has a single sleeve that holds both records, not the usual gatefold, the inner gatefold pictures, poster and booklet are missing. Even so, this is the most sought-after release of this Spanish album!

"Bob Dylan At Budokan - stereo 2LP set, CBS SCBS 2335 (Rhodesia), 1979:


CBS SCBS 2335 (Rhodesia) - front with sticker, scan by Manuel García Jara
This release was made in Rhodesia by The Gramophone Record Co. (Pty), part of EMI, and the gatefold sleeve was printed there by Belmont Printers, Bulawayo. The front of the gatefold sleeve has a sticker with the text "SPECIAL PRICE SERIES 2LP SET". Unlike the South African release, this album doesn't include the usual poster nor the song lyrics printed on inner sleeves. The rear of the gatefold sleeve has the CBS logo, catalogue number and Belmont code ("4-D2") plus "125". Belmont Printers used codes starting with "4" for sleeves they printed for CBS Records, they used other codes for other record companies. The inner gatefold sleeve also includes the CBS catalogue number.

The records have white CBS labels with blue text and the CBS logo in a box, copyrighted 1978 and 1979. This design of labels was used in Rhodesia from late 1976 until 1980. Like the South African release, track 5 on Side 3 is misprinted as "All Alone The Watchtower".

"Bob Dylan At Budokan" - stereo 2LP set, CBS LP2S-83 (Mexico), 1979:


CBS LP2S-83 (Mexico) - front scan by Manuel García Jara

This album was made in Mexico. The front has a CBS logo and an "Estereo Sonido 360"/arrows logo at top centre. The gatefold sleeve is made from good quality card. The album does not include poster or booklet, but the lyrics in English are printed on inner sleeves. The records have dark orange/light orange CBS labels, with song titles translated into Spanish and the album bizarrely classified as "POP/COUNTRY". The translations into Spanish are correct except Going, Going, Gone - "Se Va, Se Va, Se Fue" = "He's Going, He's Going, He's Gone"; as the lyrics are "I'm Going, I'm Going, I'm Gone", the correct translation is "Me Voy, Me Voy, Me Fui". This mistake was originally from the Gamma/Asylum Mexican release of Planet Waves! The records of the copy shown have matrix numbers: Side 1 - 0211-13709-1A, Side 2 - 0211-13710-1A, Side 3 - 0211-13711-1A, Side 4 - 0211-13712-1A.

"Bob Dylan At Budokan" - stereo/mono 2LP sets, Discos CBS 138.140/141 (Brazil), 1979 (two releases):

BudokanBrazFront.jpg (23464 bytes)
Discos CBS 138.140/141 (Brazil) - front with sticker, scan by Manuel García Jara (second release - first release copy doesn't have this sticker)

These releases have the standard gatefold sleeve. The song titles on the sleeve and record labels are in English only. There are also inner sleeves with the English lyrics.

The first release stereo/mono 2LP set was made for CBS in Brazil by Tapecar Gravaçôes in Rio de Janeiro. The records of the first release have plain orange CBS labels and the copy shown has matrix numbers: Side 1 - 138140-A, Side 2 - 138140-B, Side 3 - 138141-A, Side 1: 138141-B. This is the last Dylan record worldwide to be released with plain orange CBS labels, and surprisingly, the earlier Brazilian release of Street-Legal (Discos CBS 138.084) had orange/yellow labels. There was also a 1976 Brazilian release of Highway 61 Revisited made by Tapecar Gravaçôes, that had orange/yellow Discos CBS record labels too. The album title is misspelled as "BON DYLAN AT BUDOKAN" on the Side 1 and Side 2 record labels. Track 2 on Side 4 is misspelled as "Knockin' On Reaven's Door".

The album's inner sleeve has a unique purple tinge and the message from Bob Dylan (see the UK release above) is translated into Spanish, as are the song titles on the rear sleeve and the Columbia record labels. Love Minus Zero/No Limit is rather lamely translated as "Por Siempre Tu Amor" [Forever Your Love].

"Bob Dylan At Budokan" - stereo 2LP set, CBS C2L-10 (Colombia), 1979:


CBS C2L-10 (Colombia) - front of gatefold sleeve, scan by Manuel García Jara
The records of this rare Colombian release have matrix numbers including the pressing date of "27-8-79" (27 Aug 1979), approximately one year later than "Street Legal" which has the pressing dates "2/8-8-78" (2/8 Aug 1978) in addition to the matrix numbers. This 2LP set has a gatefold sleeve, the outside of which is laminated. The inside of the gatefold sleeve is identical to that of other worldwide releases.

The rear of the gatefold sleeve has the tracklist in Spanish and in English. Three tracks have not been translated even though they are tracks traditionally translated into Spanish in South America: Shelter From the Storm [Cobijo Contra La Tormenta], Blowin' In The Wind [Soplando En El Viento] and The Times They Are A-Changin'' [Los Tiempos Están Cambiando]. Other songs have been badly mistranslated: Like A Rolling Stone as "Como Una Canción Rodada [Like A Rolling Song]", I Shall Be Released as "Seré Publicado [I Shall Be Published]" (it's not possible in Spanish for a person to be published!), All Along The Watchtower as "Todos Al Frente De La Torre Del Reloj [All People In Front Of The Clock Tower] and It's Alright, Ma as "Está Bien, Ma". The records have orange/yellow CBS labels. The song titles are again translated into Spanish and there is a mistake in an English title on Side 4 - Forever Young is listed as "Foverer Young". The records of the copy shown have matrix numbers: Side 1 - COL C2L-10 DISCO 1 A 27-8-79, Side 2 - COL C2L-10 DISCO 1 B 27-8-79, Side 3 - COL C2L-10 DISCO 2 A 27-8-79, Side 4 - COL C2L-10 DISCO 2 B 27-8-79 (pressing date 27 Aug 1979 on all four sides).

"Bob Dylan At Budokan" - stereo 2LP set, CBS 100485 (Costa Rica), 1979:


CBS 100485 (Costa Rica) - front scan by Lars M. Banke
This rare release of the 2LP set has a very worn sleeve. It was made in Costa Rica by Indica S.A. (Industria de Discos Centroamericano) for CBS Records and distributed throughout Central America. All the text except "Estereo" on the sleeve and record labels is in English. The records have orange/yellow CBS labels numbered "100485-1" and "100485-2", and those of the copy shown have handwritten matrix numbers: Side 1 - CRS-100485-1-A, Side 2 - CRS-100485-1-B, Side 3 - CRS-100485-2-A, Side 4 - CRS-100485-2-B (the "CRS" should perhaps be "CBS" but all four instances are definitely a "R").

CBS/Suzy 96004 (Yugoslavia) - front scan by Manuel García Jara
This 1980 release of Bob Dylan At Budokan was the second Dylan double album to be released in Yugoslavia. Blonde On Blonde had been imported from Italy.

This set was released by Suzy Records of Zagreb (now Croatia) on behalf of CBS, but it also has the name of Dischi CBS SpA, Milan, Italy, on the rear of the gatefold sleeve, which has "CBS/Sony" on the spine. The set includes the booklet as the UK release, but Manuel's copy does not have the poster. The records were pressed in Yugoslavia by Jugoton, also of Zagreb. They have orange/yellow CBS labels and the copy shown has matrix numbers: Side 1 - ULS 614-1, Side 2 - ULS 614-2, Side 3 - ULS 615-1, Side 4 - ULS 615-2.

The Yugoslavian copy owned by Tom Willems does have a poster, but it is much smaller than the poster with his Dutch copy. A photo of the two is shown for comparison.

The 1987 CBS/Sony set comes in a double-width jewel case with a white, red and yellow obi with red and black text and price ¥4,800 (this was before sales tax was introduced in Japan - the "48" in the catalogue number indicates the price). The rear insert has the date "O-11-21" (21 Nov 1987). The 1987 copy shown is a promo with a promo panel on the rear insert and promo text in Japanese in the centre of the two CDs. There is a 36-page stapled booklet in English and Japanese. The CDs are silver with red panels and black text. The set was reissued in 1989 after the introduction of sales tax with a new price on the obi of ¥4,511 (¥4,380 plus sales tax).

The 1993 Sony set comes in a slimline 2CD jewel case with a black, white and red obi in the "Nice Price Line 31" series with white text and price ¥3,000 (¥2,913 plus sales tax). The obi has the date "93-9-22" (22 Sep 1993) and shows the original release date as "78-11-21" (21 Nov 1978), which doesn't tally with other information giving the date as 21 Aug 1978. The obi has a withdrawal date of "95-9-21" (21 Sep 1995). There is a 44-page stapled booklet in English and Japanese. The CDs are white with silver text (almost unscannable).

These reissue sets were manufactured in Austria for distribution Europe-wide. The CBS release comes in a double-width 2CD jewel case with a 36-page booklet  with song lyrics and album photos. The 1991 Columbia release still comes in a double-width 2CD jewel case with the CBS front insert, but apart from the rear insert the artwork and CDs are as my 1996 copy shown. The 1996 Columbia release comes in a single-width jewel case with a clear 2CD tray and a "Nice Price" sticker. The front insert is the 36-page booklet. The 1996 rear insert is double-sided with an inside picture. For some reason Columbia France had a different CD pressing with an error: "Love Minus Zero/No Limit" is wrongly titled "Medley: No Limit/Love Minus Zero"!

Thanks to Bill Hester for the scan of the Australian release of Columbia CDCBS 96004. The CDs themselves were manufactured in Australia, but the artwork is from the European release and was printed in Holland.

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. Bob Dylan At Budokan 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 "88691924312JK21" plus "DISCS 24&25".  This double album has been remastered, so is the sixth Dylan album remastered for this project. The CDs are different in detail, the US Bob Dylan At Budokan CDs have catalogue numbers "88691924312D24" and "88691924312D25", whereas the European CDs have catalogue numbers "88691924312-24" and "88691924312-25". 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.
