This is part of a list by release date of international (now including the USA, which was once listed separately) promo and commercially-released stereo 7" and 12" singles and EPs for 1970 that have been referred to me but do not qualify for my Searching For A Gem list because they contain only performances which are available on officially released Dylan albums. Nevertheless, their interest value or scarcity means they're worth listing here - as far as I know many are not included on any other Internet site. Special thanks to Hans Seegers for many of these items! Stereo promo versions of commercially released singles that were formerly listed in the Promotional Items sections of the yearly pages are now listed here. Singles from this period released exclusively for promotional purposes are now here also.

If you have any entries to add to the list or additions/corrections to existing entries, please let me know! Please note I cannot value your Dylan rarities - see the Mission page for reasons why. Contact the dealers on my Trading page for assistance!

This was the first commercial US stereo single. For mono singles with Wigwam and Copper Kettle, see Mono 7" Singles & EPs 1970-76.

Both songs are from Self-Portrait. Copper Kettle is titled Copper Kettle (The Pale Moonlight) and correctly credited to "A. F. Beddoe" (Albert Frank Beddoe).

There were two releases of this promo single, with two label designs. The first design (red-orange) has two variants and the second design (blue/yellow) has three variants (the second of which is dated "July 6, 1970"). For three variants of the US commercial stereo single, see below.

This commercial single was issued in two label designs. The first design has a large "COLUMBIA", the second has a ring of Columbia logos round the circumference. The second design has two variants with significantly different text sizes of both "BOB DYLAN" and the song titles. For mono singles with Wigwam and Copper Kettle, see Mono 7" Singles & EPs 1970-76.

The single shown above right (an example of the first variant of the second release) is interesting in that it is still in a special display shrink-wrap with a blue/white card backing with the track titles, artist and price (78¢). There is a hole at the top of the card for the single to be hung on a display rack in a store. The single itself is in a generic buff Columbia US sleeve, folded at the top on both sides. Peter Stone Brown thinks this would have been for a supermarket rather than a specialist record store, who did not normally use this type of packaging or display for 7" singles.

Jeremy Mayle has a copy of the first variant of the second release with a jukebox strip. It comes in a generic Columbia US sleeve like the one illustrated. Thanks to Sergio Mariano Romay for details of a copy in a plain army-green sleeve with a Jul 1970 sticker on Side 1. This copy was pressed at Pitman, NJ, and has matrix numbers ending in "1G" on both sides. Stefan Haras has a second release copy with a variant 2 label on the A-side and a variant 1 label on the B-side!

Manuel García Jara has two copies of the first variant of the second release: the first is the same as David Plentus' copy but with the text centred instead of being shifted slightly to the right, the second is the same as the first but with a hole punched through it for use as a promo. Manuel also has a copy of the second variant of the second release where the text is centred instead of being shifted slightly to the left as on Hans' copy. The B-side of Manuel's copy is the same as Hans'.

Thanks to Hans Seegers, Jeremy Mayle, David Plentus and Manuel García Jara for information and scans.


"Wigwam"/"Copper Kettle (The Pale Moonlight)" - 7" stereo promo and commercial singles, Columbia 4-45199 (Canada)/CBS 4-45199 (India/Philippines), Jul 1970:
Wigwam was confusingly issued in stereo in some countries and mono in others! The USA and Canada also had the single in stereo. For the US single, see above. Before this 7" singles had been only issued in stereo in Japan and in the USA as promo only. For mono Wigwam singles, see Mono 7" Singles & EPs 1970-76.

Wigwam7CanSideA.jpg (21022 bytes)
Columbia 4-45199 (Canada) - A-side scan by Hans Seegers

The Canadian single is interesting in that it was first released with a misprint on the B-side - the Columbia logo on the right is reversed. It was re-released with a corrected logo. Both are shown.

Thanks to Gerd Rundel for finding the rare Philippines promo single on eBay. This was made for CBS Records in the Philippines by Mareco Inc.

The very rare Indian single is from CBS Records but has the US catalogue number. It has a unique black label with silver text. It was distributed in India by Symphony Salon of Bombay on behalf of CBS, and came in the purple/white sleeve shown with the CBS and stereo logos. For 1969 Indian singles of Lay, Lady, Lay and Tonight I'll Be Staying Here With You with the same label style, see Mono 7" Singles & EPs 1969 (the singles are actually on separate sub-pages). This label style was also used for the very rare Indian release of George Jackson, see 1971.

This Jamaican single is one of the very few Dylan singles released directly in Jamaica (rather than being imported from the USA). It was manufactured and distributed by Record Specialists Ltd., Kingston, Jamaica, whose name appears at the top underneath the Columbia logo. It was released three times, with orange labels, red labels and yellow labels. Record Specialists Ltd. also made a white label test pressing, and there was also a white label promo release.

Holland had a mono release of Wigwam in 1970, CBS 5122 (see Mono 7" Singles & EPs 1970-76). This stereo single was imported into Denmark and Sweden in 1973, see International 7" Stereo Singles & EPs 1973. It may not have been released in Holland itself.

The sleeve of this stereo single came in four colour variations. There were also two label variations. There was also a mono single with the same catalogue number and sleeve. The most common B-side labels have Copper Kettle on two lines, the B-side variant with Copper Kettle on one line (like the mono single, see Mono 7" Singles & EPs 1970-76) is very rare. Copper Kettle is correctly credited to "A. F. Beddoe".

CBS 5122 (West Germany for Austria) - A-side scan by Peter Denzler
These mid-1970s stereo copies of this single have "Austro Mechana" (the Austrian company for collecting copyright royalties) instead of the German "GEMA" to the right of the centre hole. The labels are in the CBS mid-1970s orange/yellow style. Peter Denzler's copy was made in Germany and imported to Austria, but Hans Seeger's copy was made in Austria itself. I've shown details from the B-side because the scan is clearer. The 1970 West German release of this single was in mono, see Mono 7" Singles & EPs 1970-76.

The sleeves for these singles are German, in orange with the slogan "Musik der Welt" (Music of the World). They also have the text "1963-73: 10 Jahre CBS Schallplatten Deutschland" (1963-73: 10 Years of CBS Records Germany).

"Take A Message To Mary"/"Like A Rolling Stone" - stereo 7" single, CBS/Sony CBSA 82070 (Japan), Jun 1970:

Mary7JpnFront.jpg (20275 bytes)
CBS/Sony CBSA 82070 (Japan) - front of insert, scan by Hans Seegers (commercial release)

This single is part of the CBS/Sony "New Folk" series of 7" stereo singles. The illustrated promo album on right was made by CBS/Sony in Japan to promote the "New Folk" series. It includes Like A Rolling Stone, the live version from the 1969 Isle of Wight Festival from Self Portrait (the B-side of this single) and Girl From The North Country, the duet with Johnny Cash from Nashville Skyline. The name of the series and the peace symbol appear on both sides of the insert for this Dylan 7" single. As far as I know, this is the only appearance of this song from Self Portrait on a 7" record. As stated, the B-side is the live version of Like A Rolling Stone. This is also its only 7" appearance.

Three copies are shown: a test pressing with white labels; a promo copy with yellow CBS/Sony labels (this must be the last time these were used for a Japanese Dylan release); and the commercial release with orange CBS/Sony labels. All three records have three-spoked centres. They come in generic CBS/Sony 7" sleeves with the folded inserts shown. Both the white label test pressing and the yellow label promo release have the red promo stamp on the front of the insert.

Bob Dylan/The Band - "Live At Isle Of Wight" - 7" stereo EP, CBS/Sony SONE 70119 (Japan), 1970:


CBS/Sony SONE 70119 (Japan) - front scan by Hans Seegers
This EP has the four live tracks from the 1969 Isle of Wight Festival in England with The Band taken from Self Portrait. There is a two page insert with lyrics in English and details of other 1970 releases. Both promo and commercial releases of the record have orange/cream CBS/Sony labels. (The promo record has a stamp to the right of the centre hole.)

The original handbill from the 1969 Isle of Wight Festival (10" x 5¼") has a picture of Bob from Nashville Skyline on the front with a list of the artists performing on both days, while the rear includes a form to use to order tickets. A two day ticket cost £2 10s (£2.50!).

Thanks to Dr. Kevin Jones for alerting me to this item and to Hans Seegers and Manuel García Jara for scans.

"Luna Azul [Blue Moon]" - 7" stereo EP, CBS EPC 1018 (Mexico), 1970:
These Mexican EPs are now very rare! All tracks are from Self Portrait.

CBS EPC 1018 (Mexico) - front scan by Hans Seegers
A-side: Luna Azul [Blue Moon]; Bella Isla [Belle Isle]
B-side: El Esquimal [Quinn The Eskimo (The Mighty Quinn)]; Olvide Mas De Lo Que Crees [I Forgot More Than You'll Ever Know].

The record has orange CBS labels.

The interesting point here is that only Record 2 of Self Portrait was released in Mexico, see International Albums (Regular). This means that Belle Isle and I Forgot More Than You'll Ever Know, which are from Record 1, were otherwise unreleased in Mexico.

Thanks to Hans Seegers for information and scans.

"Cabaña De Indios [Wigwam]" - 7" stereo EP, CBS EPC 1028 (Mexico), 1970:
These Mexican EPs are now very rare! All tracks are from Self Portrait.

CBS EPC 1028 (Mexico) - front scan by Hans Seegers
A-side: Cabaña De Indios [Wigwam]; Ella Me Pertenece [She Belongs To Me - live]
B-side: Caldera De Acero [Copper Kettle]; Tomame Como Soy [Take Me As I Am (Or Let Me Go)].

All these songs are from Record 2 of Self Portrait, so were available on LP in Mexico (see above). Copper Kettle is mistranslated as "Caldera De Acero [Steel Kettle]" - it was correctly translated in Spain (see above).

The record has orange CBS labels.

This was the last official Dylan EP to be released in Mexico, although the 1965 Like A Rolling Stone EP (see Mono 7" Singles & EPs 1965) was re-released several times afterwards.

This picture was also used for the 1971 Watching The River Flow singles with a rarity on the B-side, see 1971.
