There is also a Sentimental Hygiene US promo 12" single (PR 2033) and CD single (PRCD 2033). These have just the album version and an edit of the title track and are therefore not Dylan rarities. For more US and UK singles with this track, see 1988.

All the European LPs have red CBS labels. The Yugoslav release was distributed by Suzy Records, the CBS agent in the country. The US LP has an orange Columbia label with the logo in a ring round the circumference. The Japanese release, CBS/Sony 28AP 3414 has a yellow obi with black text and price ¥2,800 (the "28" in the catalogue number indicates the price). The record has dark red CBS/Sony labels, again with the logo in a ring round the circumference.

The South Korean LP release is one of the few official Bob Dylan releases in that country and has unique brown CBS labels with the logo in the Columbia US-style ring. It has an insert in Korean with lyrics on the reverse side.

All these CD releases are out-of-print and very hard to find today!

CDs were released in the USA, Holland (made in Austria) and Japan only. The rear sleeve of the UK LP (see above) says the album is available "on cassette and compact disc", but apparently a CD was never released in the UK. However, it may have been intended originally to release the Austrian-made CD there.

The Dutch CD uses the first design from the CBS Austrian pressing plant.

"The Usual" - 12" promo and commercial singles, CBS 651148 6 (UK/NL/Spain/Portugal), 5 Oct 1987:


CBS 651148 6 (UK) - 12" single front, scan by Anthony Craig

Got My Mind Made Up from Knocked Out Loaded, the regular album version, was on the B-sides of both the 7" and 12" singles. Anthony Craig's copy of the UK 12" has a promo stamp - my copy of the commercial release is identical apart from missing the stamp.

The second song on the B-side of the 12" single is listed on the UK 12" as They Killed Him (written by Kris Kristofferson) from Knocked Out Loaded on the sleeve and label but plays Driftin' Too Far From Shore (also from Knocked Out Loaded, though actually an Empire Burlesque out-take). The sleeve and label are correct, the record was mispressed. The Dutch and Spanish 12" single have the same two tracks listed, and correctly play They Killed Him.

The front of the Dutch and Spanish 12" single (promo and commercial) has the extra words "MAXI SINGLE - 45RPM" above "BOB DYLAN".

Thanks to Anthony Craig and Hans Seegers for information and scans.

"Down In The Groove" (first promo release) - acetate, Precision Lacquer/Columbia (USA), 7 Aug 1987; copper master disc, Precision Lacquer/Columbia (USA), 16 Nov 1987; Sony PCM 1630 digital tape CD master, also promo cassette, Columbia CK 40975-2 (USA), 17 Nov 1987:
Thanks to Arie de Reus for the 1987 drawing by artist Rick Griffin (1948-91) as a preliminary study for the cover of the Dylan album then tentatively named Sheep in Wolves Clothing or Down In The Grove! The drawing is 12½" x 12½" in size.


Preliminary front artwork by Rick Griffin - scan by Arie de Reus

The Precision Lacquer acetate is double-sided and dated "08/07/87". The Precision Lacquer copper master is single-sided and of Side 2 only, dated "11/16/87". Shenandoah is misspelled "Shannondoah" on all three masters. The PCM 1630 cartridge is dated "11/17/87". PCM 1630 was a high-quality professional digital audio tape format that used ¾" tape in a videotape cassette - it was superseded in the 1990s by DAT, which uses a much smaller tape cartridge. For the second version, see below. I previously had this listed as the second release, but the dates on this (16 and 17 Nov 1987) and the other master below (3 Dec 1987) now show the correct sequence.

R-0195 Let's Stick Together (Wilbert Harrison) - slightly longer fade out (3:10 - released track is 3:08)

R-0196 Got Love If You Want It (James Moore - "Slim Harpo") - this was replaced by Death Is Not The End on the final release

R-0194 Important Words (Gene Vincent/Bill Davis) - this was replaced by The Usual from the Hearts of Fire film soundtrack (see above) on the second version of the album, and was itself replaced by the new version of Had A Dream About You, Baby on the final release in May 1988 - see International Albums (Regular).

The track listing of the first promo release was:
Side 1 - Let's Stick Together (longer fade-out); When Did You Leave Heaven?; Got Love If You Want It; Ninety Miles An Hour (Down A Dead End Street); Sally Sue Brown.
Side 2 - Ugliest Girl In The World; Silvio; Important Words; Shenandoah; Rank Strangers.

The first promo cassette of this album also had this tracklisting - scans required.!"

The rumour at the time was that Down In The Groove was intended by Bob to be a double album but was cut down to a single album by Columbia. Certainly promos were released with these two alternative track listings before the final track list was decided and the album was eventually released in Jun 1988. Got Love If You Want It, Important Words and The Usual (see below) were replaced, and there are several unreleased covers from the sessions in circulation which may have been planned for inclusion on a two disc set. However, I have yet to see any physical evidence of anything other than a single album, so any "culling" must have been done before masters were created.

Thanks to Arie de Reus for the scans of the acetate, and to Keith Venturoni and Larry Crum for finding the latter two items on eBay.

R-0191-3 The Usual (John Hiatt) - from the album Hearts Of Fire: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack (see above), this replaced Important Words from the first promo version (also see above)
Also appeared on singles (see above) and the 1993 Japanese promo CD Mr. D's Collection # 3 (see 1993)

The second promo release track listing (bold is new) was:
Side 1 - Let's Stick Together (longer fade-out); When Did You Leave Heaven?; Got Love If You Want It; Ninety Miles An Hour; Sally Sue Brown.
Side 2 - Ugliest Girl In The World; Silvio; The Usual; Shenandoah; Rank Strangers.

For mispressed Argentinean LP and cassette releases that have the same tracklist as this, see 1988.

Also shown is a test pressing from the CBS Records pressing plant in Carrollton, GA, dated "12-14-87". As can be seen it has generic labels from Carrollton that have not been written on, but there is a typed label on the plain white sleeve with details of the album and matrix numbers: Side 1: PAL-40957-1A, Side 2 - PBL-40957-3A. The final US release of the album was Columbia OC 40957. The handwriting on the label may not be contemporary. Thanks to Jeff Gold for scans of this pressing. There's no tracklist, but Jeff confirms it has the rarities above. For a test pressing of Oh Mercy from the CBS Records pressing plant in Carrollton, GA, see International Album Releases (Regular). Thanks to Arie de Reus for scans of a second release promo cassette from CBS Studios, New York. The cassette has a clear case with white labels. Shenandoah is misspelled "Sehnandoah".

Larry Crum has a copy from Australia of another second release promo cassette. There are no markings on the cassette itself, and the insert has a generic CBS insert with typed text. ("01-636-3434" is a London, England, telephone number in the then-used format, so I assume the origin of the cassette is the UK). Thanks to Arie de Reus for the scan. David Plentus has a cassette copy which is from the UK and is virtually identical (the words "NEW L.P." and "Dec '87" are missing).

The final track listing of Down In The Groove (blue is new) in May 1988 was:
Side 1 - Let's Stick Together (faded); When Did You Leave Heaven?; Sally Sue Brown; Death Is Not The End (1984 out-take from Infidels!); Had A Dream About You, Baby (remix of Hearts Of Fire track R-0193). 
Side 2 - Ugliest Girl In The World; Silvio; Ninety Miles An Hour (Down A Dead End Street); Shenandoah; Rank Strangers.
