Bob Dylan At Budokan
(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 US stereo LP, Columbia FC 36120, 20 Aug 1979

This album was produced by Jerry Wexler and Barry Beckett and recorded at Muscle Shoals Studio, Sheffield, AL. Thanks to Steven Fant for the photo from Jul 2009. The building is now called Cypress Moon Studios. Saved (1980) was also recorded here.

The front train/workman design is from a woodcut by Catherine Kanner. The rear sleeve photograph is by Nick Saxton and the inner sleeve photograph by Morgan Renard.

This title is one of the fifteen Dylan albums released in Sep 2003 as a hybrid CD/SA-CD. This is playable both in stereo on an ordinary CD player and in enhanced stereo on an SA-CD player or a DVD player that also plays SA-CDs (Sony's higher range models all do this). Slow Train Coming is also available on the SA-CD in 5.1 surround sound!


Muscle Shoals Studio, Sheffield, AL, Jul 2009 - photo by Steven Fant

The US inner sleeve is heavy glossy paper, otherwise the album is similar to my UK copy below. Stuart Moore has a white label promo copy with a gold stamp on the rear sleeve. Gerd Rundel's white label copy has handwritten matrix numbers: Side 1 - PAL-36120-1J, Side 2 - PBL-36120-2M.

Steven Fant's copy has a red sticker on the front sleeve with white text promoting four tracks: Gotta Serve Somebody; Precious Angel; When You Gonna Wake Up? and Do Right To Me, Baby (Do Unto Others). Gerd Rundel's 1980 copy has two stickers with one promoting the 1979 Grammy Award win for Gotta Serve Somebody (awarded 22 Feb 1980) plus Man Gave Names To All The Animals and a second sticker promoting Slow Train, Gotta Serve Somebody and Precious Angel. The record of this copy has handwritten matrix numbers: Side 1 - PAL-36120-1J, Side 2 - PBL-36120-2H.

The record of Stuart Moore's promo copy has white Columbia promo labels. There are two versions of the commercial record labels. The record of Gil Lamont's commercial copy has red Columbia labels with the yellow Columbia logo in a ring and matrix numbers: Side 1 - PAL-36120-1C, Side 2 - PBL-36120-2B. Stuart Moore's copy has slightly different labels with an ASCAP copyright below the "B. Dylan" composer credit. The records of Phill Townsend's white label copy have matrix numbers: Side1 - PAL 36120-1C, Side2 - PBL 36120-2A.

Lars M. Banke has a copy with a gold stamp "FOR MILITARY SALE ONLY" at top left of the rear sleeve. The record of this copy has handwritten matrix numbers: Side 1 - PAL-36120-1AC , Side 2 - PAL-36120-2AC.

The sleeve of Gerd Rundel's 1980s copy, Columbia PC 36120, has a wraparound sticker with a barcode on the rear and “PC 36120” on the spine. The record has catalogue number PC 36120 and handwritten matrix numbers: Side 1 - PAL-36120-1AD, Side 2 - PBL-36120-2AF. The labels again have an ASCAP copyright below the "B. Dylan" composer credit.

Stuart Moore's US songbook is published by The Benson Company, Tennessee, also listed on the back as "Exclusive Distributor to the Religious Trade", in association with Special Rider Music.

Thanks to Gil Lamont, Stuart Moore, Gerd Rundel and Lars M. Banke for information and scans.


"Slow Train Coming" - stereo vinyl LP release, Columbia FC 36120 (USA for export), 1979:


Columbia FC 36120 (USA for export) - front scan by Lars M. Banke
This copy of the US first release, Columbia FC 36120, was exported to Australia with "Columbia" erased with black marker pen in three places on the rear sleeve plus on the spine, and the ring of "Columbia" logos on the record labels obscured with black rings. The black rings on the labels look like they have been printed directly on the labels, they do not look like stickers as with all other export copies shown on the web-site.

"Slow Train Coming" - stereo reel-to reel tape, Columbia 1R1 7095 (USA), Jun 1980:

SlowTrainUSTapeFront.jpg (25898 bytes)
Columbia 1R1 7095 (USA) - box front scan by Hans Seegers
This album was released on reel-to-reel tape, in 4-track stereo running at 3¾" per second. All tracks are the standard stereo album versions. Not only was it the last Dylan album to be released on reel-to-reel tape, it was the first to be released on tape since Dylan in 1973! No tape versions were released of the Asylum albums or any of the six intervening Columbia albums!

The tape reel comes in a black card box, hinged on the left, with a white wrap-around label and a separate label on the top of the box. Steven Fant's copy has a "FACTORY SEALED" sticker still partially attached to the rear of the box.

Thanks to Hans Seegers and Steven Fant for information and scans.

"Slow Train Coming" - 8-track stereo cartridge release, Columbia FCA 36120 (USA), Aug 1979:


Columbia FCA 36120 (USA) - top of tape cartridge, scan by Stuart Moore
This release has a dark grey tape cartridge with two separate labels - the rear label overlaps the spine.
Columbia FCA 36120 (USA) - underside of tape cartridge, scan by Stuart Moore


Columbia FCA 36120 (USA) - spine of tape cartridge, scan by Stuart Moore

The tracklisting has been revised to make the four programs of equal length:

Program 1: Gotta Serve Somebody; I Believe In You; Do Right To Me, Baby (Do Unto Others) (Part 1)

Program 2: Do Right To Me, Baby (Do Unto Others) (Conclusion); Gonna Change My Way Of Thinking; ; When You Gonna Wake Up?

Program 3: Precious Angel; Slow Train

Program 4: Do Right To Me, Baby (Do Unto Others); Man Gave Names To All The Animals; When He Returns

Do Right To Me, Baby (Do Unto Others) occurs twice, first split between Programs 1 and 2, and then repeated in full on Program 4! Because the split track is a rarity, it is also listed in 1979, along with the Canadian 8-track release, which has the same tracklist.

Thanks to Stuart Moore for information and scans.


"Slow Train Coming" - stereo cassette releases, Columbia FCT 36120 (USA), Aug 1979; Columbia PCT 36120 (USA), 1979-80, re-released late 1980s:

Columbia FCT 36120 (USA), Aug 1979:


Columbia FCT 36120 (USA) - outside of cassette insert, scan by Gerd Rundel (1979 releases)


Columbia FCT 36120 (USA) - detail of cassette insert, scan by Gerd Rundel (1979 release)


Columbia FCT 36120 (USA) - cassette Side 1 scan by Gerd Rundel (1979 releases)

Columbia FCT 36120 (USA) - detail of inside of cassette insert, scan by Steven Fant (alternate 1979 release)

The 1979 cassette release, Columbia FCT 36120, has a folded insert with details of other contemporary Columbia cassette releases on the flap and on the inside. The cassette is light grey with black text, there are no paper labels. Steven Fant's insert is identical to Gerd's on the outside, but has different Columbia releases listed inside. The last catalogue number listed on Steven's insert is "P2T 35564", while the last catalogue number listed on Gerd's inset is "JCT 35991" ("P2T 35564" is also listed). Neither list releases with catalogue numbers higher than "FCT 36120". The two FCT 36120 cassettes are identical.

Columbia PCT 36120 (USA), 1979-80, re-released late 1980s:


Columbia PCT 36120 (USA) - outside of cassette insert, scan by Gerd Rundel (1979-80 release)
The 1979-80 cassette release, Columbia PCT 36120, has a smaller insert that is blank on the reverse.


Columbia PCT 36120 (USA) - detail of cassette insert, scan by Gerd Rundel (1979-80 release)


Columbia PCT 36120 (USA) - cassette Side 1 scan by Gerd Rundel (1979-80 release)

Columbia PCT 36120 (USA) - cassette Side 2 scan by Gerd Rundel (1979-80 release)

The cassette looks identical to the 1979 cassette apart from the catalogue number change. The first Columbia US Dylan cassette to have a barcode on first release was Saved in 1980, so this must date from before that.


Columbia PCT 36120 (USA) - outside of cassette insert, scan by Gerd Rundel (late 1980s release)


Columbia PCT 36120 (USA) - detail of cassette insert with barcode, scan by Gerd Rundel (late 1980s release)

Columbia PCT 36120 (USA) - cassette Side 2 scan by Gerd Rundel (late 1980s release)

The late 1980s release has the same catalogue number and the same smaller insert, this time with a barcode instead of the names of five featured tracks. The cassette is now transparent smoked grey with white text, although the text layout looks identical to that of the previous release. All three cassettes have Dolby noise reduction.

Thanks to Gerd Rundel and Steven Fant for information and scans.


"Slow Train Coming" - stereo vinyl LP, Columbia FC 36120 (Canada), 20 Aug 1979 (two releases):


Columbia FC 36120 (Canada) - front scan by Gerd Rundel (both releases)

As well as the country of origin details shown on the rear, the sleeve has “LITHO IN CANADA” printed on the spine. Like that of the US release, the rear sleeve has a barcode. The record was made in Canada and has red Columbia labels with yellow logos in a ring round the circumference. Like the US releases above, there are two record label variants - the first is missing the ASCAP copyright below the song titles and the second has the copyright text. Both records shown have handwritten matrix numbers: Side 1 - AL 36120 1A 2GHZ, Side 2 - BL 36120-2 1A 2GHZ. The record comes in a printed inner sleeve.

Manuel García Jara has submitted scans of the same release.

This release with the same catalogue number as the US 8-track release has a black slipcase with a 99c "Bargain Bin" sticker. The tape cartridge is red and has one label overlapping the end. Like other Canadian 8-track releases, the rear of the slipcase is generic and the reverse of the tape cartridge is blank.

"Slow Train Coming" - stereo vinyl test pressing and commercial LP releases, CBS 86095 (UK), Aug 1979; CBS 32524 (UK), 1984, re-released late 1980s:

CBS 86095 (UK), test pressings, Jul-Aug 1979:


CBS 86095 (UK) - test pressing Side 1 photo by Bruce Mulle
Thanks to Bruce Mulle for photos of his UK test pressing. It has plain white labels and comes in a plain white sleeve. The only way of identifying it is by the handwritten matrix numbers: Side 1 - CBS-S-86095-A1, Side 2 - CBS-S-86095-B1.

Thanks to Gerd Rundel for finding a CBS UK test pressing on eBay from a German seller. The record is the same as Bruce's with plain white labels. There is a typewritten cover sheet on continuous stationery dated "030879" (3 Aug 1979) with all the record details. The sleeve has German text "Inhalt: BOB DYLAN [Contents: BOB DYLAN]" / "Unverkäufliches Musterexemplar [Material Sample Not For Sale]" plus "MADE IN ENGLAND". Hanns Peter Bushoff of Sony Music Germany has never seen anything like this before for Dylan or any CBS artists, and if such promo items existed, they'd also be seen in, for example, the Springsteen collecting world. Its authenticity therefore cannot be confirmed.

S CBS 86095 (UK) - Side 2 (1979 release)


CBS 86095 (UK) - detail of rear

The "LC|0149" code on the record labels is on the bottom text line left of the centre hole. The record of the copy shown (although bought on the day of release) has written matrix numbers: Side 1 - S-CBS-86095-A2, Side 2 - S-CBS-86095-B1 (presumably copies with -A1/-A1 matrices exist). The front of the inner sleeve with the Dylan picture has a small cut-away area at the top (not visible in the scan) to enable the record to be removed more easily. The inner sleeve has folded-under flaps on the side with text, which makes it the rear.

CBS 86095 (UK), early 1980s (two releases):


CBS 86095 (UK) - front scan by Gerd Rundel (early 1980s releases)

This releases must date from the early 1980s as they still have the old catalogue number and orange/yellow CBS record labels. They both come in the same sleeve. The front sleeve and inner sleeve are the same as mine. The rear sleeve has two differences as shown: “CB|271” in a rectangle has been added at top right with “57” in a circle below it; “LC|0149” in a capsule has been added at rear bottom right next to the CBS logo.

On the record labels the catalogue number to the right of the centre hole is now “CBS 86095” instead of “S CBS 86095”. The first copy shown dates from around 1981 and still has “MADE IN ENGLAND” at the bottom of the labels, and arrows below “STEREO” to the left of the centre hole. The "LC|0149" capsule is below "33 RPM" to the right of the centre hole. The song titles are still centred. The record of the copy shown has stamped matrix numbers: Side 1 - 01-86095-2A-4, Side 2 - 01-86095-1B-8.

The record labels of the second early 1980s release are again totally different from those of the first early 1980s release: there are no arrows below "Stereo", which is now in upper/lower case instead of capitals; "33 RPM" is now to the left of the centre hole; “LC|0149” in a capsule is now at top right instead of on the second line to the right of the centre hole; the song titles are left aligned instead of centred; “MADE IN ENGLAND” is now in the circumference text to the right. The record of this copy has handwritten matrix numbers: Side 1 - CBS-S-86095-A-2, Side 2 - CBS-86095-B-3.

CBS 32524 (UK), 1984, re-released late 1980s:


CBS 32524 (UK) - front scan by Gerd Rundel (1984 and late 1980s releases)

The 1984 release has a new catalogue number, "CBS 32524". The sleeve was again printed by Shorewood Packaging Co. Ltd. The record comes in a generic CBS “NICE PRICE” white inner sleeve dated 1984 with details of other albums in the series, so the printed inner sleeve from the 1979 release is missing. For this reason the musician and other credits from the front of the 1979 inner sleeve are now printed on the rear sleeve at top left. The CBS logo and the new catalogue number are printed in the top right corner of the rear sleeve and the copyright text on the bottom is different. The record now has red CBS labels and the 1984 copy shown has matrix numbers: Side 1 - CBS-S-86095-A-2 (handwritten), 32524 (stamped); Side 2 - CBS-86095-B-3 (handwritten), 32524 (stamped).

CBS 32524 (UK) - detail of rear, scan by Gerd Rundel (1984 and late 1980s releases)

The late 1980s copy shown comes in the same sleeve as the 1984 album. It has a different generic CBS “NICE PRICE” inner sleeve, now black. The record of the copy shown has matrix numbers: Side 1 - CBS S 86095 A2 (handwritten), 32524 (stamped); Side 2 - CBS 86095 B3 (handwritten), 32524 (stamped). The only differences that I can see between the 1984 and the late 1980s record labels are that the white CBS copyright information at the bottom of the 1984 label has been moved to the circumference text of the late 1980s label, which is now a much bolder white.

Thanks to Gerd Rundel for information and scans.

The promo copy shown was exported to West Germany with an accompanying orange "Plattenpass [Record Passport]" promo letter describing the release. It has a gold foil stamp on the rear sleeve with German text "Unverkäufliches Muster" [Material Not For Sale]".

The inner sleeve was the same as the UK release on the front but different on the rear. In the central text, below “Percussion: Barry Beckett…” there are nine lines of text, grouped in three paragraphs of three lines each (the UK inner sleeve edition has only four lines). Mark Knopfler and Pick Withers from Dire Straits appear courtesy of Warner Bros Records, as on the UK inner sleeve rear. The text at bottom right reads “© 1979 CBS Inc  86095” (UK: “© 1979 CBS Inc  CBS 86095”). The record of Sergio Mariano Romay's copy has matrix numbers: Side 1 - PAL-36120-1K (handwritten)  01-86095-3A-3 (stamped)  BH (faintly handwritten), Side 2 - 01-86095-1B-1.

The 1983 release has a new catalogue number, CBS 32524. The front sleeve is the same as the 1979 release, but there are differences on the rear sleeve at top right and bottom right, details shown. The record comes in what looks like the same inner sleeve as before, still including the "86095" catalogue number at rear bottom right. There is one change - on the 1979 inner sleeve rear Mark Knopfler and Pick Withers from Dire Straits appear courtesy of Warner Bros Records, on the 1983 inner sleeve rear they appear courtesy of Phonogram Island. The record still has orange/yellow CBS labels. The copy of the 1983 record shown has stamped matrix numbers: Side 1 - 01-86095-1A-5, Side 2 - 01-86095-2B-2.

The late 1980s CBS 32524 release comes in the same outer and inner sleeves and has an insert with other “CBS NICE PRICE” releases of different artists (not shown). The record now has red CBS labels, with the same text layout as for the 1983 record. The copy of the late 1980s record shown again has stamped matrix numbers: Side 1 - 01-86095-1A-5, Side 2 - 01-86095-2B-2.

"Slow Train Coming" - stereo vinyl LP releases, CBS 86095 (France), 6 Sep 1979 onwards:


CBS 86095 (France) - front scan by Hans Seegers (first release)
There were three releases of the French album. The first release was made in France and was in fact the last Bob Dylan album to be manufactured in France. The first release has "Made in France" on the rear sleeve. The rear sleeve of the second and third releases is identical apart from the text now reading "Printed in Holland", because the second and third releases were manufactured in Holland and imported to France. The second release has a front sticker in English promoting Gotta Serve Somebody and Man Gave Names To All The Animals. The third release had a front sticker in English promoting the track now called just "Animals" (Man Gave Names To All The Animals). Sergio Mariano Romay has a copy of the third release where the matrix numbers are: Side 1 - PAL-36120-1K (handwritten)  01-86095-3A-4 (stamped), Side 2 - 01-86095-1B-3 (stamped).

"Slow Train Coming" - stereo vinyl LP, CBS 86095 (Italy), 6 Sep 1979:


CBS 86095 (Italy) - front scan by Manuel García Jara
The record has orange/yellow CBS labels and handwritten matrix numbers: Side 1 - CI 86095-1L 4-9-79 (pressing date 4 Sep 1979), Side 2 - CI 86095-2L/2  6-9-79  (pressing date 6 Sep 1979) and the original card inner sleeve. Both the sleeve and record were made in Italy. Although the CBS subsidiary in Italy was no longer called CBS Sugar, the placement of "MADE IN ITALY BY CBS" on the record labels shows the text had not been repositioned after "SUGAR" had been removed!

"Slow Train Coming" - advance promo stereo vinyl LP, CBS S 86095 (Spain), 1979:
Slow Train Coming, Saved, Shot Of Love, Infidels and Real Live (1979-84) are the only Dylan albums from Spain where promo copies were released with white labels.


CBS S 86095 (Spain) - front scan by Manuel García Jara (advance promo copy - generic sleeve with information label over cut-out)
This extremely rare advance promo release comes in a generic CBS Spain promotional sleeve with an information label on the front describing the album. The sleeve has a rear cut-out to show a record label, but in this case the record is in the standard inner sleeve, so the label cannot be seen (see below). Only 25-30 copies of this release were made, distributed to CBS commercial agents throughout Spain. The sleeve just has "CBS - DISCO PROMOCIONAL [CBS - PROMOTIONAL RECORD]" on the spine and the printer name on the back (Offset ALG, Madrid, as previous releases and the commercial copies of this album).

The front label reads "Adelanto Promocional. Nuevo disco de Bob Dylan Slow Train Coming. Incluye el single El hombre puso nombre a los animales [Promotional advance. New record of Bob Dylan: Slow Train Coming. Includes the single: Man Gave Names To All The Animals]". The record has white "1970s-style" CBS promo labels, different from Jordi Badell's later promo copy, see below. (These labels are actually the design that replaced the design used for the labels of Jordi's copy.) On Side 2 track 3 is wrongly titled as "When You Gonna Wake Me Up", this was corrected on the later promo and commercial labels. The record has matrix numbers: Side 1 - 86095 A, Side 2 - 86095 B.

Thanks to Manuel García Jara for information and scans.

CBS S 86095 (Spain), 1979:


CBS S 86095 (Spain) - front scan by Manuel García Jara (promo copy 1)
This release came with two sleeve variants - the first was withdrawn and is very rare. As can be seen, the rear photo is incorrectly cropped so that Bob's silhouette is much larger and the top of the ship's mast is missing. Both copies have the same card inner sleeve and record, as well as a promo insert with the song lyrics in English and a CBS Spain Dylan discography. The record has orange/yellow CBS labels. Both sleeve and record were made in Spain. The sleeve was printed in Spain by Offset ALG of Madrid, and the Discos CBS address shown is Avenida del Generalísimo 25, Madrid-16.

Manuel García Jara and Jordi Badell have later promo copies of this album than the one above in the first variant sleeve with white "1960s-style" CBS record labels (actually an earlier design than the labels above) and a promo booklet in Spanish. The record labels have the text "DISCO PROMOCIONAL PROHIBIDA SU VENTA [PROMOTIONAL RECORD SALE PROHIBITED]". Manuel's first copy has record labels which show the playing speed of 33⅓r.p.m. The record of this copy has matrix numbers: Side 1 - PAL-36120-1K  86095-A, Side 2 - PBL-36120-2F  86095-B. Manuel's second copy (the same as Jordi's) has record labels where the playing speed is omitted.

Lars M. Banke has a commercial copy of the Spanish release in the sleeve shown with slightly different record labels - the "SGAE" logo to the right of the centre hole is positioned lower than the logo on the labels of Manuel's commercial copy (actually the same position as on the Side 1 label of Manuel's second promo copy).

Manuel also has a copy of Slow Train Coming (CBS S 86095) made in Spain for export to Portugal with "SPA" (Sociedade Portuguesa de Autores) instead of "SGAE" on the record labels to the right of the centre hole - scans to be added.

CBS 32524 (Spain), mid-1980s:


CBS 32524 (Spain) - front with stickers, scan by Sergio Mariano Romay

The sleeve of this release with the new catalogue number "CBS 32524" is similar to the 1992 CBS/Sony sleeve below, except that it does not have a barcode on the rear at top left. The front sleeve of this copy has a “PRECIO REDONDO de CBS” sticker in Spanish plus another sticker with the price of 795 pesetas, and the name of the record store El Corte Inglés. The rear sleeve and the spine have “CBS 32524”. The sleeve was printed in Madrid by Offset A.L.G., S.A. The record was made by CBS itself, and now has red CBS labels. The Discos CBS address on the rear sleeve is now Paseo de la Castellana 93, 28046-Madrid (Manuel explains that Discos CBS did not in fact move offices, that part of Paseo de la Castellana was renamed "Avenida del Generalísimo" during the Franco regime, but reverted to its previous name after Franco died).

"Slow Train Coming" - stereo vinyl LP, CBS/Sony 25AP 1610 (Singapore/Malaysia), 1979, reissued 1982:


CBS/Sony 25 AP 1610 (Singapore/Malaysia) - front scan by Hans Seegers (1979 release)
This release has the Japanese CBS/Sony catalogue number 25AP 1610 and was manufactured for CBS/Sony jointly in Singapore by EMI (Singapore) PTE. and in Malaysia by EMI (Malaysia) SDN. BHD. The names of both companies appear on the rear sleeve.  The record has the same inner sleeve as the UK release, with red CBS/Sony labels with CBS/Sony logos in yellow in a ring. There is a mistake on Side 2 - Do Right To Me Baby (Do Unto Others) is track 1 and Gonna Change My Way Of Thinking is track 2. Both the rear sleeve and the Side 2 record label have the regular tracklist.

CBS/Sony 25 AP 1610 (Singapore/Malaysia) - front with stickers, scan by Manuel García Jara (1982 release)
Manuel García Jara has a copy with a US promotional sticker on the front sleeve together with an EMI price sticker for $14.90 for West Malaysia only (that part of Malaysia on the island of Borneo). Manuel thinks this copy is actually from 1982 because he has Singapore/Malaysia copies of Desire, Saved and Shot Of Love with exactly the same West Malaysia price sticker. This copy has the same mistake on Side 2 with tracks 1 and 2 reversed, but the record label has the actual tracklist and there is also a sticker on the rear sleeve with the actual tracklist.

The 1982 record labels differ from those of the 1979 release in that the copy shown has "MADE IN MALAYSIA" added to the circumference text. Are there copies with "MADE IN SINGAPORE" on the record labels as with Blood On The Tracks? The record of the 1982 copy has matrix numbers: Side 1 - 25AP-1610A, Side 2 - 25AP-1610B.

CBS SBP 237339 (Australia) - front scan by Lars M. Banke (promo release)
The promo release of this album has a gold embossed CBS promo stamp on the rear sleeve and the text "PROMOTION ONLY NOT FOR SALE" on the record labels. The first commercial release of this album had a sticker with text "FEATURING THE SINGLE GOTTA SERVE SOMEBODY". The two pictures show that it was placed differently on each copy. The record has the same inner sleeve as the UK release, with orange/yellow CBS labels. The labels of the promo copy and the first commercial copy have songs credited to "Albert". The promo record shown has matrix numbers: Side 1 - MX 88296, Side 2 - MX 88297. Stuart Moore's second commercial copy has the songs credited to "Warner Bros" instead of "Albert", which dates it after 1981. The text elements on these labels are placed differently, for example the title and artist names are on two lines instead of one on the original labels. The sleeve is the same as the first release without a sticker.

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 from late 1978/early 1979 the longer bottom edge text includes CBS copyright information. All these record labels have the longer copyright text.

Thanks to Stuart Moore, Peter Lindberg and Lars M. Banke for information and scans.

"Slow Train Coming" - stereo vinyl LP releases, CBS DNW 2402 (Rhodesia), 1979; CBS DNW 2402 (Zimbabwe), early 1980s (twice), late 1980s:

The South African catalogue number was also used in Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe) but with different CBS labels. In South Africa the sleeve was made by Interpak and in Rhodesia by Belmont Printers of Bulawayo. Belmont Printers used codes starting with "4" for sleeves they printed for CBS Records, they used other codes for other record companies. Both the South African and Rhodesian releases were manufactured for CBS by The Gramophone Company, part of EMI (bought by Universal in 2012). I do not know if these releases had the faded out Slow Train.

This album was marketed and distributed by the Gramophone Record Company (Pty) Ltd., part of EMI. The sleeve is made of very flimsy cardboard. Instead of Interpak the rear sleeve has the "4-A" code of Belmont Printers at bottom right.

CBS DNW 2402 (Rhodesia) - detail of rear, scan by Gerd Rundel (first release)

The record has white record labels with a large CBS logo and blue text. This style of labels was used in Rhodesia from late 1976 until 1980. The record of the copy shown has matrix numbers: Side 1 - AL-36120  DNW-2402, Side 2 - BL-36120  DNW-2402.

The following releases are from after Zimbabwe gained independence in 1980.

CBS DNW 2402 (Zimbabwe), early 1980s (first release):


CBS DNW 2402 (Zimbabwe) - front scan by Manuel García Jara (first release)
Again the sleeve is made of fragile recycled cardboard. The rear sleeve has the same design as the South African sleeve with credits. In the bottom right hand corner is "4-A" (Belmont Printers code).

CBS DNW 2402 (Zimbabwe) - Side 2 scan by Manuel García Jara (first release)

The record has orange/yellow CBS labels, the style used in Zimbabwe in the early 1980s, and Manuel thinks they look very strange: He thinks the record had different labels before, maybe South African. These labels have been removed, but not completely and new labels were glued over the originals, there are many traces of previous labels; These can bee seen by looking carefully at the record but is not visible on the scans. "Speed 33" is printed above "Reveille Music" to the left to the centre hole (not present on South African labels). The record of the copy shown has matrix numbers: Side 1 - AL-36120  DNW-2402, Side 2 - BL-36120  DNW-2402.

CBS DNW 2402 (Zimbabwe) - detail of Side 1 scan by Manuel García Jara (second release, copyright text from a previous label faintly visible on circumference)


CBS DNW 2402 (Zimbabwe) - Side 2 scan by Manuel García Jara (second release)

Rhodesian/Zimbabwe records are scarce, so to have more than one version of the same album is very rare. The second release has an identical sleeve, but the rear has a white sticker with the text "Pop Shop", a record shop from Salisbury (now Harare). This sticker has been partially removed - under the sticker is "4-A", the record company code used by Belmont Printers. The record still has orange/yellow CBS labels but they are very different from those of the first Zimbabwean release. "BOB DYLAN" below the album title above the centre hole is in capital letters instead of lowercase letters, and these labels have one song title per line; the first release labels have the song titles in a continuous text (as the South African labels above). Again Manuel says that if you look carefully at the labels you will again see there were previous labels underneath - the detail scan still shows the copyright text of a previous label faintly visible on the circumference! The record of the copy shown has matrix numbers: Side 1 - AL-36120  DNW-2402, Side 2 - BL-36120  DNW-2402 (same as before).

CBS DNW 2402 (Zimbabwe), late 1980s:


CBS DNW 2402 (Zimbabwe) - front scan by Lars M. Banke (late 1980s release)
The late 1980s release of the album was this time marketed and distributed by the Zimbabwe Music Corporation. The rear sleeve again has the "4-A" code of Belmont Printers at bottom right. The record has marbled blue record labels with the new CBS logo and blue text, with a completely different layout from the previous Zimbabwe releases.

"Slow Train Coming" - stereo vinyl LP, CBS CLS-5661 (Mexico), 1979:


CBS CLS-1556 (Mexico) - front scan by Manuel García Jara
The outer sleeve of this Mexican-made release is of excellent cardboard. The front has a "ESTEREO SONIDO 360" logo at top right, unexpected for an album as late as 1979. The record is in the usual inner sleeve and the copy shown has matrix numbers: Side 1 - 0211-13787-1A, Side 2 - 0211-13788-1A. The labels are orange/yellow with translated titles, with the misprint "When He Returnes" on Side 2.

CBS CLS-1556 (Mexico) - front photo from eBay (fake promo release)
Thanks to Manuel García Jara for information and scans. Thanks also to Manuel for finding a fake Mexican promo on eBay. The record looks genuine enough, although it has a fake promo stamp, but the sleeve is obviously fake. You are urged to avoid buying such items!

The record was made for Discos CBS by Gravaçôes Eléctricas S.A. of São Paulo. On the Side 2 label track 1 is incorrectly shown as "GONNA CHANGE MY WAY OF THINKINS".

The next release, Discos CBS 138.718, can be dated from late 1986/early 1987 from other Discos CBS catalogue numbers. Hans Seegers' promo copy had a CBS promo stamp "AMOSTRA INVENDAVEL" and the record had handwritten written matrix numbers Side 1 - 138.718 A AL-36120, Side 2 - 138.718 B BL-36120.

The front sleeve has a “THE NICE PRICE” sticker. The rear sleeve of the copy shown also has a record store sticker from Blumenau, Southern Brazil. The rear has the new catalogue number at top right, and also has the new cassette release number at bottom right. The copy shown does not have a picture inner sleeve, but it may just be missing. This time, the record was manufactured by Discos CBS itself in Río de Janeiro. The labels are still orange/yellow, but there are considerable differences: track timings are now included and also Gonna Change My Way Of Thinking on side 2 is now correct.

The record of the copy shown has handwritten matrix numbers: Side 1 - AL-36120  138.718 A  1-1-4, Side 2 - BL-36120  138.718 B  1-1-3.

The original Argentinean cassette release has only the Columbia logo on the insert and the cassette labels with no mention of CBS. The folded insert is blank on the inside. The cassette was made in the USA and is white with orange Columbia paper labels.

Two copies are shown of the 1980s cassette release, which is also on the Columbia label with no mention of CBS. The "Nice Price" logo on the front of the smaller insert is printed, not a sticker. Both insert fronts are the same, but the inside of Sergio's copy has the text in black, while the insert of Manuel's copy has the text in purple.

"Slow Train Coming" - stereo vinyl LP, CBS 14-1304 (Colombia), 5 Nov 1979:


CBS 14-1304 (Colombia) - front (my commercial copy - promo front is the same)

This rare album has a standard sleeve (untranslated album title) but no front logo. There is also no inner sleeve - the record is housed in a clear plastic bag. The record itself has orange/yellow CBS labels with the song titles in English and Spanish. As with many other South American releases, the Spanish translated song titles differ from those of other Spanish-speaking countries, such as those from Argentina above.

The record has handwritten matrix numbers: Side 1 - "COL 14-1304  A  5-11-79", Side 2 - "COL 14-1304  B  5-11-79". As an American style date of "May 11, 1979" would be before the US release, I assume this is the European style date of "5 Nov 1979".

Columbia CK 36120 (USA) - front of "long box", scan by Hans Seegers
The first CD release of the album in the USA came in the "long box" shown.

These releases were on sale in the USA and Canada until replaced by the hybrid SA-CD edition in 2003 (see below). The front insert is a single folded card. The Canadian CD itself was manufactured in the USA, as there was at that time no Columbia CD pressing plant in Canada.

Columbia COL CD 32524 (Austria for Europe) - CD

CBS CDCBS 32524 is from the end of the 1980s and the CD was made in Austria. It is silver with red panels and black text.

The 1990s release Columbia COL CD 32524 has a stapled multi-page booklet as the front insert. The picture in the centre of the booklet is the same as the one from the inner sleeve of the LP. The difference in the colour of the sky in the two reproductions of the rear LP sleeve picture are very noticeable - the sky on the rear insert is tinted pink, while the picture on the back of the folded front insert is tinted blue. Keith Schweiger has a copy of Columbia COL CD 32524 with a red CD tray and a "Nice Price" front sticker. The insert booklet has a "Nice Price" promotional catalogue stapled in the centre, which my copy doesn't have. The CD is the same as mine.

Thanks to Keith Schweiger for information and scans.

"Slow Train Coming" - advance promo CD-R, Columbia/Sony Music Entertainment CH 90322 (USA), 18 Jun 2003:


Columbia/Sony Music Entertainment CH 90322 (USA) - promo insert scan by Hans Seegers
This CD-R for radio play only comes in a clear plastic wallet with a single-sided paper insert dated what looks like "6/18/2003". I assume because it was sent to radio stations the CD-R has only the CD layer of the hybrid SA-CD release below.

Columbia/Legacy/Sony Music 88691924312-26 (Europe) - detail of CD26, scan by Manuel García Jara

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 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 "88691924312JK22" plus "DISC 26" (because Blonde On Blonde, Before The Flood and The Basement Tapes and Bob Dylan At Budokan had two CDs each). The CDs are different in detail, the US Slow Train Coming CD has catalogue number "88691924312D26", whereas the European CD has catalogue number "88691924312-26". The European CD was 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.
