This page collects song performances from regular Dylan albums on VHS video and DVD included in films in the 1970s (I'm ignoring any editing or talking over them). I would be grateful for any additional information on these items and other material to place here. Films are listed by date of original appearance (in theatres or on TV), not when the VHS video or DVD came out, often some years later. For the audio soundtrack albums on which these songs often also appear, see International Album Releases (Various Artists Compilations).

For a full Dylan filmography, see "Expecting Rain" or "TV Talkin'" . For informed discussion of all Bob's screen appearances, see C.P. Lee's well-received book "Like A Bullet Of Light ".

All scans that aren't credited are from my own collection or amazon.com/amazon.co.uk.

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!

Fight the much-hated artificial and anti-consumer DVD Region system by making your PC DVD drive and software or your stand-alone DVD player region-free! For more information, see Inmatrix . Everyone can play all CDs worldwide, and it should be the same for DVDs! Also see DVD Codes .

Some studios are fortunately realising that they can maximise sales of individual DVD releases by making them region-free instead of having to manufacture multiple region-specific copies- click on the picture on the right to see the text.

Thanks to Harold Lepidus for information that the long-awaited DVD release of the complete 1978-82 US TV series WKRP In Cincinatti will be released for the first time in the USA by Shout!

Factory have secured the rights to 90% of the original music, including two contributions from Bob. Thanks to Dag Braathen for information that the episode "Hold Up" (Series 1, Episode 5, 16 Oct 1978) featured Like A Rolling Stone from Highway 61 Revisited and the episode "Mike Fright" (Series 2, Episode 7, 12 Nov 1979) featured Gotta Serve Somebody from Slow Train Coming.
