R-0157    Going To San Diego (Allen Ginsberg) - this song is copyrighted to Allen Ginsberg even though Ginsberg publicly credited Bob with the musical arrangement

R-0158-2 Jimmy Berman Rag (Allen Ginsberg/Bob Dylan) - this track also appeared on a 1974 anthology Disconnected - The Dial-A-Poem Poets Double, Giorno Poetry Systems (USA), see 1974

R-0159    Vomit Express (Allen Ginsberg/Bob Dylan) - also released on Allen Ginsberg's 1994 Rhino Word Beat CD boxed set Holy Soul Jelly Roll, see 1994

In "Tangled Up In Tapes" Glen Dundas records that Bob may also have played on Tyger (the famous William Blake poem set to music by Allen Ginsberg) in New York on 20 Nov 1971 (Side 4, track 2). However, he states that this track may have been recorded at a later date without Bob, as indeed it was, in Feb-Mar 1981, as stated on the back page of the "Gallimaufry", where the actual musicians are credited.

Thanks to Harold Lepidus for news that this album has been re-released on CD and vinyl by Ginsberg Recordings and was launched at Housing Works Cafe, 126 Crosby Street, in Soho, New York, at 7 p.m. on Wednesday 16 Jan 2013. Lou Reed was one of the Ginsberg collaborators and colleagues attending. There was an exclusive limited seven track vinyl edition available at the event and online. For more details see here . Scans of the 2013 CD and 2LP vinyl releases will be added in due course. As the seven track vinyl edition has only R-0157 and R-0159, it has a separate entry in 2013.


Omnivore Records 7 DVCD-175 (USA) - front of sealed copy with sticker (2016, my copy)

A 3CD set, The Last Word On "First Blues", was released on Omnivore Records in May 2016, see 2016. This set includes the two LPs in this set as CDs 1 and 2, including the three tracks with Dylan, and a bonus disc containing four previously unreleased recordings with Bob: Nurse's Song, Spring (Merrily Welcome) and September on Jessore Road from these 1971 sessions, and Do The Meditation Rock from Rundown Studios, Santa Monica, CA, in Feb 1982. The versions of Nurse's Song and September on Jessore Road from Allen Ginsberg's 1994 Rhino Word Beat CD boxed set Holy Soul Jelly Roll, see 1994, are different recordings, Nurse's Song without Bob.


Keith Green - "I Only Want To See You There" - stereo vinyl LP, Sparrow Records SPR 1066 (USA), 1983; cassette - Sparrow Records TC BIRD 143 (UK), 1983:
Keith Green was killed in an air crash on 28 Jul 1982 and this album was released posthumously.

Sparrow Records TC BIRD 143 (UK) - cassette front scan by Kenneth Robson

R-0160 Pledge My Head To Heaven (Keith Green) - Bob plays harmonica on this remixed version of R-0153, the track from Keith's 1980 album So You Wanna Go Back To Egypt... (see 1980)

Thanks to Peter Gilmer for the information that Bob's harmonica is "all but drowned by an electric guitar" in this version, whereas in the original version it is very prominent. The version that later appeared in 1987 on the Sparrow Records Keith Green compilation The Ministry Years Vol. 1: 1977-79 (see 1987) is the original mix (R-0153). This album is therefore only for completists.

Thanks to Kenneth Robson for scans of the UK cassette release. Thanks to Jean-Pol Hiernaux for further information, including that this album is available for download on iTunes, although there has never been a CD release.

Columbia Opus 412.050 (Brazil) - front (my copy)

This compilation was exclusive to Brazil and contains two rarities.

R-0385 Baby Stop Crying - alternate mix from the version on Street-Legal, see 1978
Larry Crum says this track is slightly brighter with more treble than the original LP version, but is otherwise the same mix.

R-0075-3 A Hard Rain's Gonna Fall - live from The Concert For Bangladesh, recorded live with George Harrison, Leon Russell and Ringo Starr, Madison Square Garden, New York, 1 Aug 1971 (including introduction by George Harrison).
For the original Apple vinyl boxed set release, see 1972. For the remastered Epic 2CD version with a bonus track, see 2005. As far as I know this is the only time a song from the Bangladesh concert has appeared on an exclusively Dylan album from Columbia.

Another oddity of this release is that Mr Tambourine Man is credited to "B. Dylan/A. Grossman"! Lars M. Banke reports a rumour that this album contains a completely new mix of I Want You, but this does not appear to be true.

Tracklisting:

Side 1: Like A Rolling Stone; Lay, Lady, Lay; Baby, Stop Crying (alternate mix); Blowin' In The Wind; Mr. Tambourine Man; I Want You

Side 2: Hurricane; Just Like A Woman; If Not For You; Wigwam; A Hard Rain's Gonna Fall (live from The Concert For Bangladesh).

Note the label differences between Hans Seegers' copy and mine, both of which are promos. Apart from the colours of the background and the red text including the Columbia logo ring, the "C.G.C." numbers above the "Stereo/Mono" text are different.

Thanks to Alex Froemming from Brazil for the promo copy of the album! Thanks to Hans Seegers for scans and to Ronald Born for additional information.

R-0156 Angel Flying Too Close to the Ground (Willie Nelson) Infidels out-take, B-side of singles

The title of this song is shown incorrectly as "Angels Flying..." on backs of some sleeves and on labels. Also, some record labels attribute the song incorrectly to "Bob Dylan" and "Special Rider Music".


Jukebox strip scan by Sergio Mariano Romay
This CBS juke box strip was found inside a copy of Dutch single CBS A 3904 as above. Dag Braathen thinks that this was the intended B-side but no single with these tracks was ever manufactured.

The promo version of the Italian single shown has had the words "CAMPIONE GRATUITO" punched through the sleeve (before the record was inserted!) instead of a promo stamp.

Thanks to Hans Seegers, Dag Braathen and Sergio Mariano Romay for information and scans.

R-0156-2
Angel Flying Too Close to the Ground (Willie Nelson) - Infidels out-take, B-side of singles

The acetates of this single are interesting in that the A-side is on a double-sided acetate with the original B-side intended to be Licence To Kill. The original B-side is labelled "B45" and has been crossed out - it is shown in US & International 7" & 12" Singles & EPs 1980-83. The replacement B-side with the rarity, on a separate acetate, is labelled "B452".

The title of this song is "Angel Flying...", not "Angels" as shown incorrectly on backs of the UK sleeves and on the record labels. Also, all the four UK single labels shown in the row below attribute the song incorrectly to "Bob Dylan" and "Warner Bros Music".

The second UK release has "injection" labels - a thin coloured plastic ring-shaped layer is injected into the record itself, and the text/graphics are cut out using a stamp so that the black vinyl underneath shows through, there is no paper label.

The two Spanish promo releases are shown for completeness because they don't contain a rarity, and don't actually have a B-side although they come in the regular sleeve - the B-side is blank as shown on the record label.

Thanks to Hans Seegers for information and scans.

R-0156-3 Angel Flying Too Close to the Ground (Willie Nelson) Infidels out-take, B-side of single

On these singles the song title is shown correctly as Angel and attributed correctly to Willie Nelson.

The Japanese single came in a generic 1980s CBS/Sony sleeve (variant 5 with orange printing, see 7" Single Sleeves) with a double-sided insert. Both the promo and commercial releases have orange CBS/Sony labels. The Australian promo single has white CBS labels, the Australia and New Zealand commercial singles have orange/yellow CBS labels. None of the Australia/New Zealand singles have picture sleeves.

The US single with the Infidels picture sleeve (Columbia 38-04301) had Sweetheart Like You as the A-side and Union Sundown as the B-side, both regular album tracks. For more details see US & International 7" & 12" Singles & EPs 1980-83.

"Mixed Up Confusion etc." - 1962 Columbia acetates (USA), surfaced Nov 1983:
These acetates were previously listed as Jan 1984.

This entry covers nine acetates which surfaced in Nov 1983. The acetates themselves were probably single-sided discs and did not circulate, but were copied on to tape. Each track sounds as though it was recorded from disc separately, rather than each set being a continuous recording from a single disc. Whoever had the discs just put the songs all together on a tape, probably in an arbitrary sequence. A further six acetates surfaced in Jun 1984.

R-0583 Baby, I'm In The Mood For You - out-take from The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan, alternate take to the one released on Biograph in 1985 (CO75717 - take 3), unique to this acetate, recorded Columbia Studios, New York, 9 Jul 1962 ( take 4)
This occurred as part of the early 1984 nine acetates, and then again as part of the Jun 1984 set of six acetates. R-0583 has now been released on the Sony Music Europe 4CD-R set The 50th Anniversary Collection in Dec 2012.

R-0576 Mixed Up Confusion - a mono mix from a US Columbia acetate of the original 1 Nov 1962 (take 10) alternate recording of this song (which was later overdubbed with different backing and released on the Japanese compilations Mr. D's Collection #1 (LP, see 1974) and Mr. D's Collection #2 (EP, see 1976) and the 1978 Australia/Japan compilation Masterpieces (see 1978) and (in stereo) on the original Biograph (R-0748, see 1985).

R-0577 Mixed Up Confusion - a slightly different mono mix of take 10 from 1 Nov 1962 (R-0576)

R-0582 That's All Right, Mama (Arthur Crudup) - unreleased 1962 out-take from The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan, then unique to this acetate, recorded Columbia Studios, New York, 26 Oct 1962 (CO76983 take 1 - the "slow" version)
This occurred as part of the early 1984 nine acetates, and then again as part of the Jun 1984 set of six acetates. R-0582 has now been released on the Sony Music Europe 4CD-R set The 50th Anniversary Collection in Dec 2012.

R-0575 Mixed Up Confusion - different mono mix, unique to this acetate, of R-0007 (original US single, see 1962)

R-0008-2 Corrina, Corrina (traditional) - B-side of Mixed Up Confusion single (see 1962), alternate mono take to The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan version, recorded at Columbia Studios, New York, 26 Oct 1962 (take 4 - version on The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan is take 6), still otherwise officially unreleased
R-0008 was not released on the Sony Music Europe 4CD set The 50th Anniversary Collection, Dec 2012.

R-0550-2 Gamblin' Willie's Dead Man's Hand [Rambling Gambling Willie] - mono version, recorded at Columbia Studios, New York, 24 Apr 1962 (take 4) from the Columbia test pressing and promotional copies of The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan, 1963. This mono version of Gamblin' Willie also appeared on a UK Emidisc test pressing from the late 1960s, see Questionable Releases.
R-0550(M) was not released on the Sony Music Europe 4CD-R set The 50th Anniversary Collection in Dec 2012.

R-0551M-2 Let Me Die In My Footsteps - unedited original version from the Columbia test pressing and promotional copies of The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan, 1963, the version released on The Bootleg Series Vols. 1-3 in 1991 has a verse missing
R-0551(M) was not released on the Sony Music Europe 4CD-R set The 50th Anniversary Collection in Dec 2012.

R-0578 Mixed Up Confusion - a second slightly different mono mix of take 10 from 1 Nov 1962 (R-0576)
