"Bob Dylan At Budokan" - cassette release, CBS 40-96004 (UK?), 1985(?):

R-0314    Track timing differences (not separately listed)

This cassette has a different running order from the LP version (side 1, side 3, side 2, side 4) and three tracks missing (Ballad Of A Thin Man, One More Cup Of Coffee and Forever Young), even though the track listing and running order are listed on the insert as being exactly the same as the double LP. The running times of all the tracks as stated on the cassette insert are also different from the current CD, up to a difference of 40 seconds with The Times They Are A-Changin' - thanks to Ole Lien for information.


Lone Justice - "Sweet, Sweet Baby (I'm Falling) (Remix)"- promo and commercial 7" and 12" singles: Geffen TX 6426 (UK)/Geffen GEFA 12-6426 (NL)/Geffen GEF 12315 (Australia), 1985:

Geffen TX 6426 (UK) - 12" single front scan by Hans Seegers

R-0163 Go 'Way Little Boy - Bob plays rhythm guitar on Lone Justice's version of one of his unreleased compositions (an out-take from Empire Burlesque,)
The lyrics have disappeared from bobdylan.com!

Go 'Way Little Boy (listed as Go Away Little Boy on some singles) is only available in its original form as a bonus track on the B-side of the UK, Dutch and Australian 12" singles (but not the American Geffen 12" single as confirmed by an owner). Manuel García's copy of the UK 12" single (shown above) has a brown circular sticker with text "Featuring Go 'Way Little Boy specially written by Bob Dylan". The second song on the UK and Australian B-sides is Pass It On, which is the B-side on the UK 7" single. I previously said that Bob may also have played harmonica on R-0163 - however, it's clearly stated on the 1999 and 2003 CD releases of the song listed below that the harmonica was played by Maria McKee. Thanks to Jean-Pol Hiernaux for pointing this out. It is rumoured that Lone Justice also recorded Clean-Cut Kid from Empire Burlesque at this session, again accompanied by Bob, but that performance remains unreleased.

Go 'Way Little Boy was released on the Geffen compilation CD The World Is Not My Home: The Best Of Lone Justice in 1999 in a remixed version (R-0274, see 1999). R-0274 also appears on The Best Of Lone Justice: The Millennium Collection, see 2003.

Geffen GEF 12315 (Australia) - front scan by Kenneth Robson (promo and commercial releases)

The first song on the Dutch B-side is Don't Toss Us Away, with R-0163 as the second song. One copy of the Dutch 12" single shown has a sticker with text in German "Unverkäufliches Muster [Sample Not for Sale]" on the rear sleeve. This copy must have been exported to Germany as a promo. Manuel García Jara also has a Spanish 7" single with R-0163 as the B-side, catalogue number and label scans required.

Thanks to Tim Dunn for information, to Hans Seegers for the long-awaited scans of the UK single, to Manuel García Jara for scans of the Dutch 12" release (which explains the mystery catalogue number GEFA 12-6426), to Kenneth Robson for scans of a rare Australian promo release, and to Stuart Moore for scans of the commercial release, which has the same sleeve without the gold promo stamp.

The A-side with Bob was recorded at A& M Studios, Hollywood, Los Angeles, CA on 28 and 29 Feb 1985. This ensemble also included Bette Midler, who duetted with Bob on her version of Buckets Of Rain from her Atlantic album Songs For The New Depression, see 1976.

R-0631 We Are the World (Michael Jackson-Lionel Ritchie) - short version of R-0164 (3:00)
This edit is as far as I know unique to this very rare Argentinean 7" promo single! Normal length of R-0164 is 6:22. This version fades out before Bob's vocal part!

R-0632 We Are the World (Michael Jackson-Lionel Ritchie) - extended version of R-0164 (7:02)
From albums, see below.

R-0633 We Are the World (Michael Jackson-Lionel Ritchie) - edited version of R-0164 (5:50)

"Desire" - "Nice Price" UK reissues, CBS 32570 (LP), 1985; CBS 40-32570 (cassette), 1985, Columbia 40-32570 (cassette), 1991:

CBS/Columbia 40-32570 (UK) - inside of cassette insert with "Nice Price" catalogue, scan by Kenneth Robson


CBS 40-32570 (UK) - Side 2 with R-0208, scan by Artur Jarosinski

R-0208 Oh, Sister (Bob Dylan/Jacques Levy) - unfaded version with an uncensored exchange between Emmylou Harris and Bob (she says "I f**ked it up!" - this is cut on the normal LP and CD version)

Note the different track order from the LP/CD - Oh Sister is the final track on Side 2 of the cassette instead of Sara, which is the final track on Side 1. Kenneth Robson's copy has "Columbia" on the cassette insert, but "CBS" on the cassette itself.

I'm informed by Ole Lien, who bought the cassette version of Desire on the strength of this listing, that the cassette currently available has the same catalogue number (40-32570) but a third running order - One More Cup Of Coffee is the last track on side 2 instead of Oh Sister shown above; Sara replaces it as the fourth track on Side 1, with Oh Sister in its expected place at the end of Side 1. Sadly Oh Sister on the current cassette release is no longer the unfaded version R-0208, so only cassettes with the running order shown have the rarity. I have now bought a 1980s CBS cassette copy with "CBS" on the insert, with this running order and an identical-looking cassette to the one shown, but it does not have the rarity!

Thanks to Keith Venturoni for the information about the vinyl Nice Price release of Desire, from "On The Tracks", 15 Sep 2000, in the article "Foreign Editions Of Bob Dylan Albums" by Lars M. Banke (page 40). The LP must have a hand-written matrix number of "CBS-32570-A5" on Side 1, as mine does. Keith bought a copy in the UK with the matrix number "CBS-32750-A" (without the "5"). This does not have the uncut version of the track, nor to my knowledge does any other vinyl version. The version with the rarity was apparently quickly withdrawn and replaced with the commercial edit. Thanks to Manuel García Jara for finding an eBay copy of the 1985 UK stereo vinyl release of Desire with the rarity, which I bought. For full details of the album, see International Albums (Regular).

"Tight Connection To My Heart (Has Anybody Seen My Love?)/We Better Talk This Over" - 7" promo and commercial singles, Columbia 38-04933 (USA - promo only/Canada), 24 May 1985; CBS A 6303 (UK - promo only), May 1985; CBS BA 3306 (Australia/New Zealand), Jun 1985; CBS 51.092 (Brazil), Jun 1985:
For the Tight Connection video release on laserdisc, see the
VHS & DVD 1980s page.

R-0166 Tight Connection To My Heart - 7" single edit (3:45, edited from 5:20)

Columbia 38-04933 (USA - promo only/Canada), 24 May 1985:


Columbia 38-04933 (USA/Canada) - front scan by "Dante" (promo and commercial releases)
The US 7" promo Columbia 38-04933 has the edit on one side and the Empire Burlesque album version on the other, as does the UK promo CBS A 6303. For the US commercial single with the 5:20 album version as the A-side, see US & International 7" & 12" Singles & EPs 1984-86.

I was wrongly informed there was also a 12" extended mix but this is in fact identical to the album track. For details of the 12" commercial singles with the album version see US & International 7" & 12" Singles & EPs 1984-86. For a 1985 US 12" promo single with the album version, also see US & International 7" & 12" Singles & EPs 1984-86.

The B-side of the 7" commercial single was We Better Talk This Over, the regular 1978 album track from Street-Legal (a strange choice, a track from Empire Burlesque would have been expected).

The "smiley face" sticker on the front sleeve at top right of this promo-only stereo LP is from "4TO", a Townsville, Queensland, radio station. The record comes in an inner sleeve promoting Sony audio equipment. The record has matrix numbers: Side 1 - MX215995-C, Side 2 - MX215996-B, and has a Dylan rarity on Side 1:

R-0167-2 Tight Connection To My Heart - 7" faded single edit (3:35)
Stuart Moore times this as 3:35 on Side 1 of the LP rather than the 3:40 of the second Australian 7" promo single above (which he doesn't have to compare it to), but I shall classify it as a second occurrence of R-0167 for simplicity.

Thanks to Stuart Moore for information and scans.

"When The Night Comes Falling From The Sky" - 12" promo single, Columbia CAS 2169 (USA), Nov 1985:

Night12USEdit.jpg (23036 bytes)
Columbia CAS 2169 (USA) - label scan by Magnus Sjöberg
R-0168 When The Night Comes Falling From the Sky - second edited version (4:18)
This is a longer edit than R-0591 - see above.
Unlike the LP version, the song has a "disco mix" intro and has been cut down to the verses 1, 4, 5, 6, 9 and 10. The alternate mix of the same length R-0629 is unique to the UK and has a quite different verse selection - see below.

This 12" promo has the edited version of the song on both sides.

Thanks to Alan Hoaksey for information and to Magnus Sjöberg for the scan.

R-0168-2 When The Night Comes Falling From the Sky - second edited version (4:18)

This rare promo single has white CBS labels and is blank on the B-side (several Spanish 7" promos are like this). It came with a compliments slip from Discos CBS S.A., Madrid.

"When The Night Comes Falling From The Sky"/"Dark Eyes" - 7" promo and commercial singles, CBS A 6469 (UK), Nov 1985:
There was also a UK promo - scans required!


CBS A 6469 (UK) - front scan by Hans Seegers
The first release of this single contains a unique rarity!

R-0629 When The Night Comes Falling From the Sky - third edited version (4:18)
This is the same length but a completely different edit to R-0168 - see above.
Here the song has the same intro as the LP version, not the "disco mix" intro, and has been cut down to the verses 1, 2, 3, 4, 9 and 10 (verses 2 and 3 replace 5 and 6). This alternate mix is unique to the UK and is very rare.

This was quickly replaced by:

R-0168-3 When The Night Comes Falling From the Sky - second edited version (also 4:18)
This is the same edit that was released in all the other countries listed on this page.

These two singles are physically identical - the only distinguishing feature is the matrix number on the vinyl itself: the single with R-0629 has matrix number A 6469-A1, the single with R-0168 has matrix number A 6469-A2!

Thanks to Hans Seegers for information and scans.

"When The Night Comes Falling From The Sky"/"Dark Eyes" - 7" promo and commercial singles, CBS A 6469 (NL)/CBS BA 3343 (Australia/New Zealand), Nov 1985:


CBS A 6469 (NL) - front scan by Hans Seegers

R-0168-4 When The Night Comes Falling From the Sky - second edited version (4:18)

The UK and Dutch singles have the same front sleeve but different rear sleeves. Also, the Dutch sleeve opens at the side, the UK sleeve opens at the top. Note the Dutch single has "new style" red labels, but the UK (above), Australian and New Zealand singles have the older style orange/yellow labels. Magne Karlstad has two mislabelled copies of CBS A 6469 - the first plays R-0168 on the A-side but has the A-side label for CBS A 6549, The Prophet by Dutch group The Prophet. The B-side label is correct. The second single has the correct label on the A-side, but the B-side label is again for CBS A 6549, Lorelei by The Prophet. It plays Dark Eyes correctly.

The Australian single came as a white label promo, and also a promo release with the commercial labels and a red promo stamp on the B-side. Three copies of the New Zealand single are shown - copy 1 has a "demonstration only" sticker on the A-side, copy 2 has the sticker on the B-side, and copy 3 is the commercial release without stickers. The Australian and New Zealand releases had no picture sleeves.

The 12" UK single with the same sleeve, CBS TA 6469, has the full album version of the song, along with Dark Eyes on the B-side, see US & International 7" & 12" Singles & EPs 1984-86.

Thanks to Hans Seegers for information and scans. Thanks to Bill Hester for information about the 7" New Zealand release.

CBS 40-66509 (NL for Europe) - front of cassette box set (my copy, bought in UK)

This set was first released on 5 LPs or 3 cassettes - each LP was in a picture sleeve with song notes. In the cassette edition and in the slightly later CD edition the LP sleeves were included as a second 12" booklet. The UK 5LP release was sourced from Holland. The CD version was released in 1986 in a 12" square box and later in a 12" x 6" box in the USA (scans of the latter required). On the 12" US square box the top is hinged on the left, not separate. The centre picture is a 1965 photograph by Daniel Kramer. The pictures shown above are examples, for full details of these releases, see the Biograph page in International Albums (Regular).

R-0748 Mixed Up Confusion - stereo mix of the overdubbed version of an alternate take of the 1962 single A-side (2:22), originally recorded Columbia Recording Studios, New York, 14 Nov 1962 (take 10) and overdubbed later with different backing, probably on 8 Dec 1964.
This stereo mix is a few seconds shorter than R-0145, the same overdubbed take that appeared in a mono mix on the Japanese promo LP Mr. D's Collection # 1 (see 1974), the Japanese promo EP Mr. D's Collection #2 (see 1976), and the 1978 Japanese/Australian set Masterpieces (see 1978). It is not the original single R-0007 (see 1962). This take doesn't have a harmonica solo immediately after Bob's introduction "I've got mixed up confusion, Man, it's a-killin' me!".  While the overdubbed backing is much more clearly audible in this stereo mix than in R-0145, it is slowed down to just the same extent (a semitone, i.e. approximately 5%), suggesting that the slowing down was perhaps applied to Dylan’s guitar/harmonica /vocal track before the overdubbing took place.

For details of the various released alternate takes of this song, see 1962. Many thanks to Roger Ford, Les Kokay, Bob Stacy and Ian Woodward for all their information about these alternate takes, and for permission to reproduce their findings. The original version of this take, with the original backing musicians and at the proper speed (R-0576-2) has now been released, along with six other takes of Mixed Up Confusion, on the Sony Music Europe 4CD-R set The 50th Anniversary Collection in Dec 2012.

Mixed Up Confusion on the "corrected" 1997 edition of Biograph is a newly discovered stereo version of the original single. This replaced the alternate take on the 1985 release of Biograph (R-0748, see above). The original single (mono and stereo) has a harmonica solo immediately after Bob's spoken introduction "I've got mixed up confusion, and it's a-killin' me!", the alternate take used in 1985 doesn't. The stereo version of the original single was then retained in the "corrected" reissue. This means the stereo version of the original single take is not now a rarity, but the alternate take on the 1985 version of Biograph has become a rarity. However, thanks to Tom Willems for news that the 2011 European 3CD "ecolbook" release of Biograph contains the alternate take of Mixed Up Confusion from the 1985 release of the set (R-0748). If this is a deliberate change, and not just a "Columbia Cock-up" that will be corrected as in 1997, then the stereo version of the original single will become a rarity again, and has been allocated a new number, R-0888! Thanks also to Blake Eikenberry for information that the 2013's Side Tracks, released as a 2CD set as part of The Complete Album Collection Vol. One and also as a limited numbered edition 3LP set, also contains the alternate take of Mixed Up Confusion from the 1985 release of the set (R-0748)! It appears that Columbia have set this "Cock-up" in stone! I am keeping R-0748 listed here in case the situation changes again...

Hans Seegers has a Japanese 5LP promo release of Biograph: the records have red labels with promo stamps, and stamped matrix numbers: Records 1-3: OOAP-3136/37/38A1/B2, Record 4: OOAP-3139A2/B3, Record 5: OOAP-3140A1/B1. The box has a "Sample not for sale" sticker on the back of the box, a black, blue, white and yellow obi, and two books (scans required). Hans also has an original Japanese CD release, CBS/Sony 00DP 401-3 (1989) - this is a triple CD set in a slipcase with two books. It has a black/multicoloured obi.

Thanks to Patrick Helfrich and Anton Sylvain for other scans.


"Biograph" - 3CD "ecolbook" edition, Columbia/Legacy/Sony Music 88697 85648 2 (Europe), 28 Mar 2011:


Columbia/Legacy/Sony Music 88697 85648 2 (Europe) - front with sticker (my copy)
Thanks to Tom Willems for news that this 2011 European 3CD "ecolbook" release of Biograph contains the alternate take of Mixed Up Confusion from the 1985 release of the set (R-0145 see 1962 and above). If this is a deliberate change, and not just a "Columbia Cock-up" that will be corrected as in 1997, then the stereo version of the original single (see 1962) will become a rarity again! The "ecolbook" is the size of a DVD case and contains spindles for the three CDs plus a bound-in booklet. The tray artwork is new for Biograph.

Thanks also to Blake Eikenberry for information that the 2013's Side Tracks, released as a 2CD set as part of The Complete Album Collection Vol. One and also as a limited numbered edition 3LP set, also contains the alternate take of Mixed Up Confusion from the 1985 release of the set (R-0748)! It appears that Columbia have set this "Cock-up" in stone! I am keeping R-0748 listed here in case the situation changes again...


Various Artists (Artists United Against Apartheid) - "(Ain't Gonna Play) Sun City"/"Not So Far Away (Dub Version)" - 7" & 12" singles: Manhattan (various catalogue numbers) (Worldwide), Dec 1985; "Sun City" - LP & CD releases: Manhattan (various catalogue numbers) (Worldwide), Dec 1985
Bob contributes vocals to this charity song. For the Dec 1985 VHS video The Making Of Sun City, see VHS & DVD 1980s. Thanks to Bill Hester for clarifying that there are in fact four versions of this song with different times (which explains the gap in the R-numbers as two were added later), also for information about Australia and New Zealand releases.

Because of the length of this page, full details of all entries containing the charity song (Ain't Gonna Play) Sun City by Artists United Against Apartheid are here.

Manhattan B50017 (USA) - 7" single front, scan by Manuel García Jara

R-0170 (Ain't Gonna Play) Sun City (Miami Steve Van Zandt) - 7" single version (4:58)

The US promo 7" single and most worldwide 7" singles time the A-side at 4:58, but the US commercial and West German 7" singles time it at 5:09. Is this really a slightly extended mix? The B-side of the 7" single is Not So Far Away (Dub Version) by the Artists United Against Apartheid ensemble from the album below, but not including Bob. Where front sleeves are not shown these are the same as the Dutch single.

R-0518 (Ain't Gonna Play) Sun City (Version II) (Miami Steve Van Zandt) - second album version (5:42)

This Argentinean promo single is unique in that it has the album version from Side 2 (5:42), see below as the A-side, not the single version (4:58). The B-side is an unrelated track by an Argentinean artist. It has dark-yellow promo stamps on both labels with text "VENTA PROHIBIDA PROMOCIONAL" (sale forbidden promotional).

Unlike the other 12" singles illustrated above, including another Australian 12" single, Manhattan GOOD 95, this single has the 7:10 album version of the song. It was distributed in Australia by EMI. The sleeve has a white background instead of the usual black.

Thanks to Stuart Moore for information and scans.

R-0611 (Ain't Gonna Play) Sun City (The Last Remix) (Miami Steve Van Zandt) - 12" extended remix (9:37)

The B-side of the 7" and 12" single did not include Bob, nor did any of the other tracks on the album. The Canadian 12" sleeve has the sun on the front in pink rather than red. The UK 12" single came in either a picture sleeve of a generic Manhattan sleeve. The Japanese 12" single had a picture sleeve dated "I-12-5" (5 Dec 1985) and a red/white obi with price ¥1,400. For an explanation of Japanese year code letters from 1985 to 1991 see International Albums (Regular). There is a single-sided insert and the record is in a clear plastic inner sleeve.

There are two Australia/New Zealand 12" singles, Manhattan GOOD 95, which has R-0611 (9:37) on Side 1, and Manhattan ED-155 above, which has R-0171 (7:10) on Side 1. GOOD 95 was also sold in New Zealand.
