This is part of a separate multi-year 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 1973 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! (As far as I know, no 12" singles were released in this time period.) 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. I would also like to include cassette singles here, but I don't have any, and none have been notified to me so far (I don't think any belong to this time period).

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!

"Just Like A Woman"/"I Want You" - 7" stereo singles in "Hall Of Fame Hits" series, CBS 1158 (UK), Apr 1973; S CBS 1158 (UK), late 1970s, 1979:

"Wigwam"/"Copper Kettle" - 7" stereo singles, CBS S 5122 (NL for Denmark/Sweden), 1973:
These two songs were the regular album versions from Self Portrait. For the Dutch stereo single, see International 7" Stereo Singles & EPs 1970.

CBS S 5122 (NL for Denmark), 1973:

CBS S 5122 (NL for Denmark) - front scan by Hans Seegers

Denmark had a mono release of Wigwam in 1970 (see Mono 7" Singles & EPs 1970-76) and this stereo reissue in 1973. This was imported into Denmark from Holland, with a sleeve unique to Denmark, although printed in Holland. Lars M. Banke adds regarding the sleeve of the Danish single, which I wrongly listed as being for school radio only: "The text means "The theme from TV's "Focus"". The story behind the single is that "Wigwam" was used as the signature tune or theme for a programme titled "Focus" broadcast by the Danish national television channel. And as there was only one national Danish channel when the single was released, there was no need to mention which channel on the sleeve - just "TV"."

Sweden had no 1970 release, mono or stereo, but did have a 1973 stereo release, again imported from Holland. Hans's copy has the name of the Swedish/Danish record store "FONA" printed on the rear sleeve at bottom right.

Manuel García Jara's Swedish promo copy has a green promotional stamp on the rear sleeve at top right, and the same stamp on the A-side label of the record. The rear sleeve doesn't have the "FONA" text. The Swedish record has a different text layout to right of the centre hole from the commercial single with the intro and total playing times in a much larger type face.

"Knockin' On Heaven's Door" - 7" single-sided stereo acetate, Columbia Studios, Nashville, TN (USA), Jul 1973:

KOHDAcetate.jpg (18358 bytes)
Picture from eBay
Un-numbered acetate with a handwritten stock label containing Knockin' On Heaven's Door (2:28) from the soundtrack album Pat Garrett & Billy The Kid. This is the A-side of the various US and international Knockin' On Heaven's Door stereo singles, see below.

Thanks to Gil Walker for finding this rare item on eBay. Gerd Rundel has also found on eBay a completely black single-sided 10" test pressing without a label. This has "E 322" stamped on the reverse, but no other markings.

Tom Willems has a copy of this with the B-side label on both sides! The record plays correctly. There is also a second variant with misprinted labels with the B-side label replaced by the A-side label of a single by Tanya Tucker called The Missing Piece Of Puzzle. Dag Braathen's copy has an alternate label design with the text in a different type face.

This record was made available for juke box use with three different strips: the first design is orange/black with a shaded background and the text "HIT" and "POP" on the centre line. The second shaded version omits the text and is in red/black, while the third is also in red/black with a white background.

For international commercial and promo stereo releases, see below.

KnockinUKPromoA.jpg (27789 bytes)
S CBS 1762 (UK) - promo A-side scan by Hans Seegers (push-out centre)

The UK stereo promo had white labels with the release date of "14th Sept, 1973", and the commercial single had orange CBS labels - neither had a picture sleeve. The black plastic clip shown in the scan by Kenneth Robson is not an official CBS accessory. These clips were sold in record shops so that ex-jukebox records that had had their push-out centres removed could be played on standard turntables, especially automatic turntables that could play multiple singles or LPs (as an alternative to the plastic rings that could be placed on the turntable spindle in order to play ex-jukebox records).

These two songs were the regular album versions from Pat Garrett & Billy The Kid.

The German promo single (which contained the regular record) had a promo "CBS-Blitzinformation [CBS-Lightning Information]" sleeve with release-specific text on the front and a generic rear sleeve. The German regular sleeve uses one of the Bangladesh Concert pictures of Bob from 1971.

The Italian and Yugoslav single have unique picture sleeves taken from the film of Pat Garrett & Billy The Kid. Suzy Records of Zagreb (now in Croatia) was a subsidiary of CBS Records. The record had orange CBS labels originally, but was re-released in the 1980s with the new design orange/yellow CBS labels.

Thanks to Francisco Lima for information about the Spanish release, CBS 1762. The titles are translated as "Llamando A La Puerta Del Cielo" and "La Caza Del Pavo", slightly different from those of the Mexican single below. The record was made in Spain by Discos CBS S.A. and had orange CBS labels. This single was re-released in the mid-1970s in the same sleeve, but the record now had orange/yellow CBS labels

Manuel García Jara's copy of the 1973 single is slightly different from Han's copy. On the A-side all text elements to the right of the centre hole are positioned lower and more to the right, e.g. "(P) 1973 CBS, Inc" is near to "EN" (text in the circumference) instead of the "o" of "Fabricado" and the "(P) is above the "RT" of "PUERTA" instead of "E". On the B-side the gap "(P) 1973 CBS, Inc" and "LA CAZA DEL PAVO" is noticeably bigger on Manuel's copy than on Hans'.

"Knockin' On Heaven's Door"/"Turkey Chase" - 7" stereo singles, CBS 1762 (Sweden), Sep 1973:


CBS 1762 (Sweden) - A-side scan by Hans Seegers (open centre)

The record of the Swedish release CBS 1762 was made in Sweden as illustrated but it used the Dutch sleeve shown above. The Swedish single occurs with three variants: open, push-out and solid centres. Jan Halfdan Petersen's copy shown with the solid centre came in a 1973 CBS "THE MUSIC PEOPLE" generic sleeve (see 7" Single Sleeves), but it may be because the original Dutch sleeve for this Swedish single has been lost. Tommy Lidgren has a copy with the solid centre in a completely different sleeve with "THE MUSIC COMPANY", and also a copy with the open centre in a French sleeve as also shown above.

I understood previously that all CBS Scandinavian singles were pressed at the PolyGram plant in Oslo, Norway, and distributed throughout Scandinavia in locally printed sleeves. However, three Dylan 1970s singles including this one were pressed in Sweden at a different plant, and all have "MADE IN SWEDEN" at the bottom of the labels.

This single has orange CBS labels with song titles translated into Spanish. The Spanish translations of the song titles are slightly different from those of the Spanish single above. It has a generic "Exitos De... [Hits Of...] folded sleeve with a picture of Bob Dylan. The sleeve could be used for any Dylan single, but this was the first single for which it was used. The front has extra text "LADO A: [SIDE A:]" and "LADO B: [SIDE B:]" so that the song titles can be handwritten. There is a similar sleeve with "Exitos De Santana". "Radio Éxitos" and "Radio Variedades" are two radio stations based in Mexico City belonging to GRC (Grupo Radio Centro), the most important broadcasting company in Mexico.

Thanks to Éamonn Ó Catháin for finding a copy in a generic sleeve on eBay - the single is the same as shown. Another copy in the orange sleeve shown went for a high price on eBay, but although the record itself is genuine, the "picture sleeve" is highly suspicious - the photo used is a crop of one of Bob and Sara in Woodstock in 1965 taken by Daniel Kramer as shown, an unusual choice for a CBS company to use in 1973 when the other singles with picture sleeves on this page used contemporary photos.

Thanks to Manuel García Jara for information and scans.

This EP was legal in Thailand at the time of release, but there is no association with Columbia. These Thai releases are extremely rare and sell for very high prices.

The A-side of this EP has Heartbeat - It's A Lovebeat by The DeFranco Family and You've Never Been This Far Before by Conway Twitty. The B-side has Paper Roses by Marie Osmond and Knockin' On Heaven's Door by Bob from Pat Garrett & Billy The Kid.

Thanks to Hans Seegers for information and scans.

"Knockin' On Heaven's Door"/"Just Like A Woman" - 7" metal acetate, CBS/Sony (no catalogue number) (Japan), Aug 1973:


Front of sleeve, scan by Wil Gielen
This acetate in a plain white sleeve has the album track from Pat Garrett & Billy The Kid on the A-side and the 2:56 edit of the mono version of Just Like A Woman on the B-side. Because this is a rarity, full details are in 1973.

The test pressing dated "9-21" (21 Sep 1973) is a very rare item, with a completely different insert from other promo and commercial releases of the single. It has plain white labels with hand-stamped catalogue numbers and Japanese characters indicating a sample, plus red handwritten text in Japanese. The record came in a green generic CBS/Sony Japanese sleeve. For this generic sleeve, see 7" Single Sleeves. Francisco Fernandez has a copy with the same insert and CBS/Sony sleeve as Hans Seegers' copy and the same white labels, but with different Japanese handwritten text in red.

The promo single also came in a green generic CBS/Sony Japanese sleeve.

The commercial single is also comparatively rare. The record came in a generic sleeve with a folded insert - the inside of the insert (not shown) has the story of the film in Japanese and the lyrics in Japanese and English.

Thanks to Hans Seegers, Ronald Born, Sam C. Visser and Francisco Fernandez for information and pictures.

Columbia 4-45982 promo 7" single (USA) - stereo side with song wrongly credited to Buford Abner, scan by Hans Seegers
This promo 7" single has the same song on both sides, in mono and stereo. As both of these tracks are rarities, see here.

See here for a note about writer credits, as the song is often wrongly credited by Columbia to Buford Abner, but it was actually written by Bill Trader.

Thanks to Hans Seegers for information and scans.
