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 1971 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!

Various Artists - "Éxitos Juveniles [Teen Hits]" - 7" stereo promo EP, CBS/Lyra (no catalogue number) (Bolivia), 1971:

This very rare stereo Bolivian EP, bizarrely titled Éxitos Juveniles [Teen Hits], was made by Industrias Fonoeléctricas Lyra for CBS Records as was usual in Bolivia at this time (from the mid 1970s CBS records from Bolivia were made by another company, Heriba). It includes the following tracks:

Malas costumbres [Evil Ways] - Santana (edited version)
Lay, Lady, Lay - Bob Dylan (full album version)
La vida continúa [Life Goes On] - Sandro (the Argentinean artist who covered Blowin' In The Wind)
Cecilia - Simon & Garfunkel (edited version)

This EP was made to promote the EPs where these four tracks were included, and has the promo text "Disco promocional - Prohibida su venta [Promotional record - Not For Sale]" printed on the front sleeve and the record labels. There is no catalogue number. The rear sleeve shows the fronts of two of these four EPs (the Dylan EP below and Santana). There is also a handwritten date "1969?". This date is not correct - both tracks on the A-side and track 1 on the B-side were originally released in 1969 in their respective countries (USA and Argentina) but Cecilia (from the album Bridge Over Troubled Water) was not released until 1970, and because records in Bolivia were always released with so much delay, this EP could not have been released until 1971 (as was the Dylan EP). The record has orange CBS labels.

Thanks to Manuel García Jara for information and scans.


"Lay, Lady, Lay" - 7" stereo EP, CBS 20287 (Bolivia), 1971:


CBS 20287 (Bolivia) - front scan by Hans Seegers

This EP, pictured on the rear sleeve of the promo EP above, is one of the few Dylan items ever released in Bolivia and is very rare. The blue writing on the front of the other copy is from a Bolivian radio station.

A-side: Lay, Lady, Lay; One More Night
B-side: Tell Me That It Isn't True; Nashville Skyline Rag

The record was manufactured and distributed in Bolivia by Industrias Fonoeléctricas Lyra of La Paz on behalf of CBS Records. It has 1960s-style plain orange labels with a unique CBS/Columbia logo. All tracks are the regular stereo versions from Nashville Skyline.

CBS S 7092 (UK) - A-side of promo single (my copy)
Both tracks are from New Morning, regular stereo album versions. Again, this was the first stereo 7" Dylan single for many countries. For a 1972 US Columbia promo 7" single of If Not For You paired with Tomorrow Is A Long Time, see the 1972 page of this listing.

The UK single comes as both a white label promo with release date "5th March, 1971" and the regular release with orange labels in two styles. Gerd Germano's copy with a solid centre has stamped matrix numbers: A-side - S-7092-A1, B-side - S-7092-B1. They did not have picture sleeves.

CBS 7092 (West Germany) - B-side scan by Hans Seegers (promo and commercial copies)

These three releases all had different picture sleeves.

Stefan Haras has a West German copy in a promo "CBS-Blitzinformation" sleeve. The record is the commercial release. Hans Seegers has a West German demonstration copy with a stamp on the front in German "Unverkäufliches Muster [Sample Not for Sale]" (across Bob's cheek like a scar!). Again the record is the commercial release.

Hans Seegers has a copy of the Dutch single, the first stereo Dylan single in Holland, with a misprinted A-side label showing the track as Sing, Baby, Sing by Titanic! It plays correctly.

The French single sleeve has a "languette" - for more information about the unique French index tabs or "languettes" (few of which have survived), see 1965.

Thanks to Francisco Lima for information and to Hans Seegers for further information and scans.


"If Not For You"/"New Morning" - 7" stereo/mono single, CBS 7092 (Italy), Apr 1971:
Both tracks are from New Morning, regular stereo album versions.


CBS 7092 (Italy) - front scan by Hans Seegers
This "stereo/mono" single has orange CBS labels with an "SAIE" stamp from the Italian copyright organisation on the A-side. Stefan Haras' copy has a demo stamp on the B-side with text "DISCO CAMPIONE NON VENDIBILE [SAMPLE RECORD NOT FOR SALE]". The A-side of Stefan's copy is the same as Hans', with the "SAIE" stamp in the same position.

"Otra Mañana [New Morning]"/"Si No Fuera Por Ti [If Not For You]" - 7" stereo single, CBS 7092 (Spain), 26 Mar 1971:

NewMorning7SpFront.jpg (20832 bytes)
CBS 7092 (Spain) - front scan by Hans Seegers (both variants)

On the Spanish single New Morning is the A-side. The titles are translated as "Otra Mañana [Another Morning]" and "Si No Fuera Por Ti". On the Venezuelan single below New Morning is translated as the more expected "Nueva Mañana". There are two record label variants on the B-side - the more rare first variant gives the English song title incorrectly as "It not for you", the more common second variant has it correctly as "If not for you".

"Watching The River Flow" - 7" mono/stereo promo singles, Columbia 4-45409 (USA), 3 Jun 1971:
For more Watching The River Flow international mono and stereo 7" singles, see 1971, Mono 7" Singles & EPs 1970-76 and here. Thanks to Éamonn Ó Catháin for information from the Steve Hoffman Forum that the mono mix is different from the stereo mix, and not a reduction. Steve Hoffman says:
"The mono mix, as issued on the original Columbia 45 4-45409 (matrix number JZSP 155106) is tight, punchy with the drums pushed up a few db in the mix. Exciting, until you compare it to the stereo mix and remember that, after all, it's a Dylan song, not Leon Russell. The mono mix obscures Dylan's voice, lowering it in the mix and rendering it murky and slightly distorted. The stereo mix (J76412/BC546045) is more dynamic, actually has better & more delineated bass and even though the drums are a bit back in the mix, Dylan's voice is lifelike, with an unmistakable "breath of human" sound."

This promo acetate has the same track on both sides - the song was recorded at the Blue Rock Recording Studio in New York in Nov 1971 at the same time as the tracks for Bob Dylan's Greatest Hits Vol. II but never released at the time. It eventually appeared on The Bootleg Series Vols. 1-3 in 1991.

Both tracks are from Bob Dylan's Greatest Hits Vol. II (CBS/Sony SONP 50450-51). This single has a gatefold picture insert with lyrics (in both the promo and commercial versions) with price ¥400. I had the A-side previously listed as a rarity, but Larry Crum points out that the version on Greatest Hits Vol. II does not fade in after the applause for Tomorrow Is A Long Time, but just starts with no pause - there is actually no overlap. This A-side is therefore identical to the album version.
