This page contains promotional and commercial releases of mono 7" singles and EPs with Dylan album tracks for 1970-76. These don't contain rare tracks, but they're included because it is no longer possible to buy mono versions of album tracks (for completeness, mono singles that did include rare tracks are now listed here, with their full entries on the yearly pages). There were no new Columbia mono singles after 1976, although there were some mono reissues of original 1960s singles, listed on the appropriate 1960s pages. Mono LPs have their own pages, see Mono Album Releases.

For illustrations of all the generic 7" single sleeves used by Bob's record companies from the 1960s onwards, see the 7" Single Sleeves page. (A single has much less value to a collector if it doesn't have its correct original sleeve.)

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!

"Wigwam"/"Copper Kettle" - 10" mono 45RPM acetate, Columbia Recording Studios, Nashville, TN, no number (USA), Jul 1970:

WigwamUSAcetateA.jpg (25392 bytes)
Wigwam US acetate - A-side scan by Hans Seegers
This acetate is very rare and unusual for two reasons: firstly it's 10" instead of 8" (the normal acetate size); and secondly because it's in mono. This was unusual because the promotional and commercial singles in the USA and Canada were all stereo, although mono versions were released in other countries. For stereo US and international singles with Wigwam/Copper Kettle see US & International 7" Singles & EPs 1970. For mono non-US singles with Wigwam/Copper Kettle see below. For the Self Portrait mono LP, see Mono Album Releases.

R-1091 Wigwam - mono version of Self Portrait track

R-1092 Copper Kettle (Albert Frank Beddoe) - mono version of Self Portrait track

WigwamUSAcetateB.jpg (26851 bytes)
Wigwam US acetate - B-side scan by Hans Seegers

These tracks could be reductions from stereo from the mono LP. However, Mark Easter informs me that Columbia mixed tracks from stereo-only albums in mono specially for singles up to 1970, so these mono tracks could be exclusive mixes for the non-US 7" single releases. They're also listed in 1970.

Thanks to Hans Seegers for information and scans.


"Wigwam"/"Copper Kettle (The Pale Moonlight)" - 7" mono promo and commercial singles, CBS 5122 (Ireland/West Germany/France/Italy/Spain), 13 Jul 1970; CBS 5122 (NL), 14 Aug 1970; CBS 33675 (Brazil); CBS SSC 1074 (South Africa); CBS BA 221757 (Australia); CBS BA 461296 (New Zealand); CBS 15005 (Venezuela), Jul 1970:
This was actually Bob's best-selling single in Holland! Wigwam was confusingly issued in mono in some countries and stereo in others - for the stereo singles issued in both 1970 and 1973 see US & International 7" Singles & EPs 1970. Thanks to Bill Hester for information about the New Zealand release, CBS BA 461296. See above for a comment about whether these tracks are mono reductions from stereo or mono mixes exclusive to these 7" singles. They're also listed in 1970. For the Self Portrait mono LP, see Mono Album Releases. Larry Crum has a copy of the German CBS 5122 and believes it be stereo, and also believes the Dutch CBS 5122 may be stereo also. The French CBS 5122 is definitely mono. Confirmation required!

The UK release was CBS S 5122 and in stereo, so is listed in US & International 7" Singles & EPs 1970.

R-1091-2 Wigwam - mono version of Self Portrait track

R-1092-2 Copper Kettle (Albert Frank Beddoe) - mono version of Self Portrait track
(On some singles Copper Kettle is either uncredited or incorrectly credited to "None" or "Traditional" instead of "Albert Frank Beddoe" - it is not in fact a "genuine" folk song, but was written in 1953 for a "folk opera" called "Go Lightly, Stranger".)

CBS 5122 7" commercial single (Ireland):


CBS 5122 (Ireland) - A-side scan by Ronald Born

This single had a generic orange/white CBS sleeve. It has the song on the B-side correctly credited but the title is shown incorrectly as "Copper Kettle (That Pale Moonlight).


CBS 5122 (Ireland) - B-side scan by Ronald Born (credited to "Alfred F. Beddoe" (not Albert), and with an incorrect title!)

CBS 5122 7" commercial single (NL), 14 Aug 1970:

CBS 5122 (NL) - detail of A-side, scan by Hans Seegers


CBS 5122 (NL) - B-side with generic centre, scan by Manuel García Jara

I previously listed the release date of this single as 13 Jul 1970, the same as the other European release dates, but Tom Willems says the book "Hypnotist Collectors" by Jean-Louis Dréau and Robert Schlockoff (Média Presse, France, 1989) gives the release date as 14 Aug 1970. The single did not enter the Dutch charts until 29 Aug 1970. It remains Bob Dylan's biggest single hit in Holland!

The rear sleeve of this single is a generic one with no record details, just pictures of nine contemporary CBS LPs. This single exists in an interesting mislabelled version, with the A-side shown as Why Can't I Touch You by Ronny Dyson! The B-side is correctly credited to "A. F. Beddoe". Manuel's copy has a non-standard plastic insert in the open centre. As stated above, this single may be in stereo. A definite stereo version with a completely different sleeve, CBS S 5122, was made in Holland for export to Denmark and Sweden in 1973, see US & International 7" Singles 1973. However, the 1973 release does not appear to have been released in Holland itself.

CBS 5122 7" promo singles (West Germany):

These promo copies come in the same promo "Blitzinformation" sleeve but the record is a regular commercial single in both cases. For the generic rear sleeve of these promo singles, see 7" Single Sleeves.

The first copy has "UNVERKÄUFLICH [NOT FOR SALE]" stamped on the A-side only. Copper Kettle on the B-side is uncredited (as commercial variant 1A). The second copy has a white promo sticker on the A-side with text "Unverkäufliche Musterplatte [Sample Record not for Sale]". Copper Kettle on the B-side is sub-titled "(The Pale Moonlight)" and correctly credited to "A. F. Beddoe" (as commercial variant 1C).

CBS 5122 7" commercial single (West Germany):

WigwamGerFrontBack.jpg (30787 bytes)
CBS 5122 (West Germany) - commercial sleeve scan by Hans Seegers (same front and back)

The commercial single was first released with the same writing credit mistake on the B-side as the first promo variant, then this was corrected but the title was misspelled as "COOPER KETTLE" - they got it right the third time!

On the second and third variants the B-side title is sub-titled The Pale Moonlight.

The West German label variant of CBS 5122 supplied by Peter Denzler has "BOB DYLAN" at the top of the label and the CBS logo on the left hand side! Copper Kettle is spelled and credited correctly. Peter says this single sounds as if it is in stereo, even though there is no stereo indication on the label. Peter also has a West German stereo copy with CBS mid-1970s labels, see US & International 7" Singles 1970.

CBS 5122 7" commercial single (France), re-released late 1970s/early 1980s:

WigwamFranceFront.jpg (25385 bytes)
CBS 5122 (France) - front scan by Hans Seegers (with languette on right)

The sleeve of this single has an index tab or "languette", unique to France. For more information about languettes, see 1965.

The record was released with four label designs, all in the same sleeve: two designs of regular orange paper labels, orange/brown injection "labels" and reddish injection "labels" (not shown), which I'd date from late 1970s/early 1980s. Jim Siddy has a copy of the single where the record has the first variant orange paper labels but "BOB DYLAN" and the song details are printed much lower down on the A-side. This is probably just a printing alignment difference.

Copper Kettle is correctly credited to "A. F. Beddoe" on the sleeve but not on the Side B record labels.

For an injection label a thin coloured plastic ring-shaped layer is injected into the record itself, and the text/graphics cut out using a stamp, there is no paper label.

CBS YD 245/YD 248 7" jukebox singles (Italy):

WigwamItalyJukeLabel1.jpg (21648 bytes)
CBS YD 245 jukebox single (Italy), first release - A-side scan by Hans Seegers

There were two mono Italian jukebox singles with Wigwam - CBS YD 245 had 25 Or 6 To 4 by Chicago on the other side, CBS YD 248 had Hi-De-Ho by Blood, Sweat & Tears on the other side. Each was released in two variants: on variant one of YD 245 the title "Wigwam" is 13cm in length, on variant two the title is 18cm. Variant one of YD248 had "SAPAR JUKE BOX VIETATA LA VENDITA [SALE FORBIDDEN]" on the right of the centre hole, while in variant two this was replaced by "JUKE BOX SERVICE JUKE BOX VIETATA LA VENDITA".

CBS 5122 7" commercial singles (Italy):

WigwamItalyFront.jpg (33073 bytes)
CBS 5122 (Italy) - front scan by Hans Seegers (both variants)

The rear sleeve of this single has the catalogue number and song titles, plus pictures of six contemporary CBS LPs including Nashville Skyline. There are two rear sleeve variants with different printer names printed vertically at bottom right - the first has "Stampa reparto grafico C.G.D." and the second has "Rep. Grafico CBS-SUGAR"). The record has orange CBS labels. Copper Kettle is uncredited.

There were also two record label variants, which as far as I know are not connected to the rear sleeve variants. The differences are to the right of the centre hole on both labels: the "R" in a small circle below the "SIAE" logo is missing, and "45" is positioned higher. Additionally Manuel's copy has a "SIAE" stamp on the A-side missing from the A-sides of both Hans and Ronald's copies (Ronald's A-side is not shown because it's exactly the same as Hans').

CBS 5122 (Spain) - detail of A-side, scan by Hans Seegers (stereo single -shown for comparison)

This single has the same sleeve as the Spanish stereo release of CBS 5122, with colour variation of the titles from dark blue to almost pink. The record labels differ from the stereo version of this single in not having "ESTEREO" to the right of the centre hole. Also, the B-side of the mono single always has 'CALDERA DE COBRE "Copper Kettle"' on one line, on the stereo single it can be on one line or two. The sleeve was printed by Offset ALG, Madrid. The mono single was made in Spain by Fonogram S.A. for Discos CBS, Madrid, as was the stereo single. Manuel García Jara has a copy from the first batch released that has the A- and B-side record labels swapped. This has been corrected with purple/white stickers with "WIGWAM" and "CALDERA DE COBRE".

CBS SSC 1074 7" commercial single (South Africa):

Wigwam7SASideA.jpg (19279 bytes)
CBS SSC 1074 (South Africa) - A-side scan by Hans Seegers (solid centre)

This single has orange CBS labels and comes in a standard sleeve. The B-side is correctly credited to "A. F. Beddoe". Hans Seegers' copy has a solid centre, Manuel García Jara's copy has a push-out centre.

CBS BA 221757 7" commercial single (Australia):

This record has orange CBS labels. The B-side is correctly titled and credited. Manuel García Jara has two copies with demo stamps on the B-side. The first has a very faint stamp with just "NOT FOR SALE SAMPLE RECORD", the second has a much clearer stamp with the same text plus four more lines in smaller print. This copy comes in a paper sleeve, not plastic as some Australian sleeves, in a dark pink colour, not orange.

The promo copy shown is identical to the commercial single on the A-side, but has both a small black stamp with "AMOSTRA INVENDAVEL [SAMPLE NOT FOR SALE]" and a large red stamp which says "Pertence à Rádio 9 de Julho" [Property of Radio 9 July] on the B-side. (Radio 9 July is a station in São Paolo.) Thanks to Alexandre Froemming for translating and explaining the red promo stamp! Manuel García Jara's commercial copy comes in the Discos CBS sleeve shown.

CBS 10472 7" commercial single (Costa Rica):

CBS/Columbia 15005 7" promo commercial singles (Venezuela):


CBS/Columbia 15005 (Venezuela) - A-side scan by Manuel García Jara (promo release)

These rare singles have orange CBS labels and come in a sleeve exclusive to Venezuela, see 7" Single Sleeves. There is an unusual “CBS/Columbia” logo on the singles. The A-side of each single is mistitled "WIGWAN" instead of "Wigwam", like the Costa Rican single. The B-side title is translated as "PAILA DE COBRE (COPPER KETTLE)", "(The Pale Moonlight)" is omitted. It is correctly credited to "A. F. Beddoe".

The promo single has “PROMOCIONAL [PROMOTIONAL]” printed, not stamped, and has different text to the left and right of the centre hole from the commercial single. Manuel García Jara's commercial single is the same as Hans’ but has the variable text offset to the left instead of being centred as on Hans' copy. The Self Portrait album was not released in Venezuela.

Thanks to Hans Seegers, Manfred Helfert, Ronald Born, Peter Denzler, Manuel García Jara and Sergio Mariano Romay for information and scans.

Lay, Lady, Lay was released worldwide as the A-side of a mono single, see Mono 7" Singles and EPs 1969.

The promo copy shown of this single has "DISCO PARA DEMOSTRACION VENTA PROHIBIDA" [DEMONSTRATION DISC NOT FOR SALE] stamped on both sides. Manuel García Jara's commercial copy comes in a generic CBS sleeve with a printed price on the rear: "Precio I.V.A. $11,50.-" - (I.V.A. means "Impuesto al Valor Agregado [VAT - "Value Added Tax"], "$11,50.-" means 11.50 Argentinean Pesos (the dollar symbol was used in many countries).

R-0689 All The Tired Horses - mono version of track from Self Portrait (stereo version is not a rarity)
More details are in 1970.

This and the 7" promo single below are the only appearances of this song in mono, as it was not released as a commercial single. This acetate is very rare. The mono version again could be a reduction from stereo, not true mono - for the Self Portrait mono LP, see Mono Album Releases. As mentioned above, Mark Easter informs me that Columbia mixed tracks from stereo-only albums in mono specially for singles up to 1970, so this mono track could be an exclusive mix for a 7" single release.

These singles have the mono version (as above) on one side, and the regular album stereo version on the other. See above for a comment about whether these tracks are mono reductions from stereo or mono mixes exclusive to these 7" singles - for the Self Portrait mono LP, see Mono Album Releases.

The mono sides have a white promo label with red lettering, the stereo sides have a blue and yellow promo label with black lettering. There are three variants:

1   "BOB DYLAN" printed vertically
2   "BOB DYLAN" printed horizontally on one line
3   "BOB DYLAN" printed horizontally on two lines

"Watching The River Flow" - 7" mono/stereo promo singles, Columbia 4-45409 (USA), 3 Jun 1971:
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."

Five mono/stereo promo singles are shown here. The first two promo singles have white labels with red text and the title track in mono on both sides, the next three have a white label with red text on the mono side and a light blue label with black and yellow text on the stereo side.

"Rainy Day Women #12 & 35"/"Like A Rolling Stone" - mono 7" single in "Hall Of Fame" series, Columbia 4-33100 (USA), 1973; Columbia 13-33100 (USA), 1975 onwards:

These singles were used for jukeboxes and are most valuable with their pink jukebox strip - see below left. Both tracks are the standard mono versions: Like A Rolling Stone from Columbia 4-43346 (Jun 1965), Rainy Day Women from Columbia 4-43592 (Mar 1966).

The 1980s Collectables Records releases have grey labels, the 1997 releases have red/yellow labels. All variants of Columbia 13-33100 have "RAINY DAY WOMEN #12 & 35" on two lines:

Columbia 13-13100 (USA) - front of sleeve of copy exported to Belgium, scan by Francisco Lima

The black plastic clip shown in the scans of Columbia 13-33100 by Kenneth Robson is not an official Columbia 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).

Francisco Lima has found the sleeve of a copy of Columbia 13-33100 exported to Belgium. This looks like a generic sleeve used by an importer with the artist and song titles rubber stamped.

Columbia 4-33178 (USA) - A-side scan by Hans Seegers (1973 release, first variant)
Both tracks are from Nashville Skyline. I had previously assumed this single was in stereo. However, Mark Easter informs me that it is definitely in mono, and that the mono mixes are not stereo reductions. Columbia mixed tracks from stereo-only albums in mono specially for singles up to 1970, so these tracks could be from the mono 7" single releases.

Columbia 4-33178 was available in two label variants: one with the release dates just touching the white line above, and one with the release dates 5mm below the white line. The second also exists in a jukebox version with a pink jukebox strip similar to the one shown below for the 1997 release. All versions of the single had the text 'From the Columbia LP "NASHVILLE SKYLINE" - KCS 9825' under the song title on the A-side, even after that release had been deleted. KCS 9825 was the original US stereo release, see International Album Releases (Regular). These same two tracks had previously been released on a CBS Greece mono 7" single, see International Mono 7" Singles & EPs 1969. Jordan Preslar has a copy with the first label variant that has the labels reversed, the side with the Lay, Lady, Lay label actually plays I Threw It All Away and vice-versa.

The USA single was re-released with catalogue number 13-33178 in 1975, twice in the 1980s, and again in 1997. The late 1980s jukebox release on Collectables Records was licensed by Columbia. Thanks to Patrick Helfrich for scans of the Collectables Re-Issue 7" single. This copy has matrix numbers: A-side - ZSP-150045-IAH, B-side: ZSP-139975-IAH. Note the different positioning of the B-side label on Patrick's copy from mine, cutting away part of the song title!

A stereo version of this single was released in 1976 in the UK with a picture sleeve, see US & International 7" & 12" Singles & EPs 1976.

Manuel García Jara has a copy of Columbia 13-33178 similar to the 1987 release above with grey labels bought in Singapore in a generic sleeve. It has matrix numbers: Side A - P ZSP I50045- IAG, Side B - P ZSP I39975- IAE.

These singles were used for jukeboxes and are most valuable with their pink jukebox strip - see above and below right. Columbia 4-33221 exists with two label variants: the first has the original release date "MARCH 1965" only on the B-side. It's also available with a promo sticker "PROMOTION RECORD FOR BROADCAST & REVIEW ONLY/NOT FOR SALE" on three lines. Al Kooper's name is misspelled "Cooper" on all the A-sides (his real name is Alan Peter Kuperschmidt, although perhaps it should be spelled "Kupferschmidt" - "Coppersmith" in German).

This single was re-released in 1975 as Columbia 13-33221, twice in the 1980s and again in 1997, as Columbia 13-33221 (1975 release illustrated) Both releases give the B-side title as "SUBTERRANEAN HOME SICK BLUES" with "HOMESICK" as two words, split over two lines on the record label. The labels of David Burgess' copy don't have a black sunburst, while those of Kenneth Robson's copy do have one. The 1987 release of Columbia 13-33221 has grey labels, and there was also a late 1980s release with the same style labels by Collectables Records of Narberth, PA, including the Collectables logo. Stefan Haras has a copy of the 1987 release where the last three lines of text below the centre hole are missing. The B-side of this copy is printed normally.

Please note that the black plastic centre clips shown in the scans by David Burgess and Kenneth Robson is not an official Columbia 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).

For locations of other "Hall Of Fame" singles: those containing rarities, those in mono, and those in stereo, see "Hall Of Fame". For Columbia Hall Of Fame 7" sleeves, see 7" Single Sleeves. Original US releases had a gold sleeve (see above), which was later changed to light yellow.

Bob Dylan/The Band - "It Ain't Me, Babe"/"All Along The Watchtower" - 7" mono/stereo promo and commercial singles, Asylum E-45212 (USA/Canada), Summer 1974:
The US Asylum singles were made at three different pressing plants in the USA, each is identified by a code on the single label: "CSM" - Santa Maria, CA; "CTH" - Terre Haute, IN; "SP" -
Specialty Record Corp, Olyphant, PA. Labels from only two plants are shown. Some Asylum albums also have code "CP", which means the Columbia pressing plant at Pitman, NJ. The tracks are live with The Band from Before The Flood. The A-side is a reduction to mono from stereo, as no mono version of this album was released.

Asylum E-45212 (Canada) regular single A-side (mono 3:40) - scan by Dag Braathen

I previously reported this as a different performance from that on Before The Flood, but the story is more complicated! Les Kokay reports in "Isis" issue 102 that, while the performances are essentially the same, there is a noticeable difference on the last line of the third verse: on the album track and the regular singles (USA, Canada, West Germany, Spain) Bob sings "It still ain't me, babe"; here he sings just the expected "It ain't me, babe." Les' theory, confirmed by Bob Meyer, is that on this promo version the last three lines of the third verse are spliced in from the afternoon performance of the same date.

Canadian commercial single:

R-0555 It Ain't Me, Babe (3:40) - Before The Flood version with The Band, recorded at The Forum, Los Angeles, CA, evening show, recorded at The Forum, Los Angeles, CA, evening show, 14 Feb 1974, in false mono
This would appear just to be the "mono" version of the complete album track, which is indeed 3:40.

For more details, see 1974.
