(1985)

This page is part of a list of original releases by release date of international commercially-released regular stereo Dylan albums. They do not contain rarities or obscurities and are not eligible for the Searching For A Gem list. Nevertheless, their interest value or scarcity means they're worth listing here - as far as I know some are not included on any other Internet site. Promo releases of regular albums are now listed here and no longer in the former yearly Promo sections.

For releases of this album in CBS/Columbia multi-packs, see International Album Releases (Regular) - Multi-Packs.

Original US stereo album, Columbia OC 40439 (LP), OCT 40439 (MC), 14 Jul 1986.

Bob revealed in an interview that the album title comes from a blues song called Junco Partner, recorded by James Booker, and also by The Clash on their Sandinista album.

"Down the road came a junco partner
For he was loaded as can be.
He was knocked out, knocked out loaded
He was a-wobblin' all over the street
."

An interesting point about the front sleeve is that, although the Gregory Peck Western film mentioned in the lyrics of Brownsville Girl is "The Gunfighter" (20th Century Fox, 1950), directed by Henry King, Rod MacBeath, in his article called "Looking Up Dylan's Sleeves Part 5" in "The Telegraph 54" suggested that the illustration believed to be by Charles Sappington was of a scene from a different Gregory Peck western. This is "Duel In The Sun" (MGM, 1946), directed by King Vidor, which also starred Jennifer Jones. This is now known to be incorrect.

"The Gunfighter" was filmed in black-and-white, whilst "Duel In The Sun" was in Technicolor. The scene from "The Gunfighter" above right shows Gregory Peck as Jimmy Ringo, who's just been forced to kill a young punk who challenged him, as in the song lyrics.

In an interview to be found here , Charles Sappington said:

Q: Did you create the image for the album cover? Or just the design?

A: I created the package. However, the deal was at the time … I promised them I wouldn’t talk about it. There was a reason, and it was legal. They had some legal problems with that cover. I suspect enough time has passed, but I have to stick to my word unless I get approval from the Dylan camp. (Note: Dylan’s camp had no comment.) What I can say is that Bob Dylan supplied the original image and then we distorted it from there.

Q: Did you have much interaction with Dylan on the cover?

A: They originally had a photographer shoot some photos of Dylan and Tom Petty. I heard Dylan took a look and threw them all in the trash. The only thing he liked from the shoot was a Polaroid test shot, which is the first thing they gave me. I fiddled with that, but they didn’t care for it, and we went in a different direction. That’s the part I can’t talk about. But on the inside there were the thank-yous …

Q: There were a ton of thank-yous …

A: Yes, but it didn’t start out that long. It was about 20 names. Bob told me he didn’t want it in this typeset. He wanted it hand-lettered but not calligraphy. I knew exactly what to do. I turned it over to my now ex-wife. She was at UCLA in a landscape architecture program. She was into lettering on drawings, which I thought would be perfect. I sent Bob a sample, and he liked it. But every morning he called with new names to add to the list. The morning it had to go to press he called with five more names. My wife was headed out the door to go to her job, and I said, “Wait, you have to do this before you leave.” She sat down and did it.

However, "Isis" #175 includes Internet reports from Scott Warmuth and Fred Bals that the picture has nothing to do with "Duel In The Sun"! It originally appeared on the front of the American pulp magazine "Spicy-Adventure Stories", Jan 1939. The artwork is by Harry Lemon Parkhurst and illustrates a story called "Daughters of Doom", written by E. Hoffmann Price. This explains Sappington's later comments "They had some legal problems with that cover" and "Bob Dylan supplied the original image".

Harry Lemon Parkhurst (1876-1962) was a very prolific illustrator for more than 50 years of pulp magazines and comics, especially for "Spicy-Adventure Stories" as shown left and right. Edgar Hoffmann Price (1898-1988) was an equally prolific writer of stories for pulp magazines, best known for his contributions to the fantasy magazine "Weird Tales", where he collaborated with H. P. Lovecraft. He also used other names such as Clark Nelson and Walter Cook.


Thanks to Dag Braathen for a completely different possible title and cover for this album! "This is a concept design for a Bob Dylan album cover. After being approached by Dylan's management to develop the cover art, Rick Griffin listened to the music scheduled for the album and created an emotionally intense vision, contrasting the dark blue, rebellious cool of Marlon Brando in the 1953 film, "The Wild One", with the passionate red of the title lettering. Rick was "jacked up" at that period, having just bought a new Harley Davidson motorcycle, so an autobiographical reference element can be seen in the image. The album eventually came out with the title Knocked Out Loaded in July 1986. Rick worked on several Dylan projects through the 1980s."

Vinyl and Tape Releases


"Knocked Out Loaded" - stereo vinyl LP, Columbia OC 40439 (USA), 14 Jul 1986:


Columbia OC 40439 (USA) - front with sticker, scan by Gerd Rundel

Gerd Rundel's sealed copy has a front sticker promoting "The New Bob Dylan Album". The record has red Columbia labels with the logo in a ring round the circumference and a picture inner sleeve. The front of the inner sleeve has musician credits superimposed over a live picture of Bob on stage in Australia in Feb 1986 with Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. The rear of the inner sleeve has a long list of credits superimposed over a picture of an as yet unidentified woman - maybe one of Bob's backing singers? Bob is now known to have married backing singer Carolyn Dennis on 4 Jun 1986, so it may be her. Jeremy Mayle has a copy with a gold embossed promo stamp over the barcode on the rear sleeve.

Sergio Mariano Romay has a copy with a different front sticker. The record of this copy has handwritten matrix numbers: Side 1 - PAL-40439 – IC, Side 2 - PBL-40439 – IC.

Thanks to David Plentus, Gerd Rundel, Jeremy Mayle and Sergio Mariano Romay for information and scans.

"Knocked Out Loaded" - stereo cassette releases, CBS PC 8191 (Australia), 1986, 1989; CBS 467040 4 (Australia), 1990:


CBS PC 8191 (Australia) - front scan by Stuart Moore (both releases)
The original 1986 release, CBS PC 8191, has a single-fold front insert and a white cassette with blue text printed directly on to the case, there are no paper labels. It was re-released with the same insert but with a transparent grey cassette with ridges and with white text printed directly on to the case, there are again no paper labels. This ridged design is the same as other Australian cassettes from 1989.

The 1990 release, CBS 467040 4, has a wider two-fold front insert and (unusually) a black cassette with red CBS labels. CBS became Columbia in 1991, so this dates from before then.

Thanks to Stuart Moore for information and scans.

"Knocked Out Loaded" - stereo vinyl LP, CBS SBP 8191 (New Zealand), Aug 1986:


CBS SBP 8191 (New Zealand) - front scan by Bill Hester
As far as I can see, this New Zealand release has the same sleeve and inner sleeve as the Australian release above. There is no country of origin on the sleeves, but the record was made in New Zealand. This was the last Dylan album where the record was pressed in New Zealand itself, after this all New Zealand releases were imported from Australia.

This album was made in the Philippines by OctoArts International Inc. for CBS Records. As usual for the Philippines, the titles of four tracks have been added to the front sleeve, this time in white below "BOB DYLAN". The front sleeve also has the catalogue number in very small text at bottom left. The rear sleeve has credits printed on the left edge. This album can be seen to have been a sample because it has a punched hole at top right of the front sleeve and a promo sticker that covered the barcode has been partly removed on the rear sleeve. The record has orange/yellow CBS labels and the copy shown has matrix numbers: Side 1 - P (P)  PAL-40439-1B QCL-22251-A, Side 2 - P (P) PBL-40439-1B QCL-22251-B.

CBS ASF 3114 (South Africa) - front scan by Manuel García Jara
South African releases were originally made by The Gramophone Company, part of the EMI group (bought by Universal in 2012), and printed by Interpak and Rhodesian albums were made also by The Gramophone Company but printed by Belmont Printers of Bulawayo. In 1983, Infidels was made in South Africa by the same company but the sleeve was printed by Artone Press, while in Rhodesia it was printed by Belmont Printers of Bulawayo. And in 1986, Knocked Out Loaded was made in South Africa by another company, Gallo/GRC and printed by Artone Press, always with orange/yellow labels. This was the first album made by Gallo/GRC. It has a standard front; the rear sleeve has a CBS logo and a barcode. This is one of a few albums with the tracklist printed on the rear. It has the standard picture inner sleeve. The record of the copy shown has orange/yellow CBS labels and matrix numbers: Side 1 - ASF-3114-A, Side 2 - ASF-3114-B.

The promo copy of this album has a prominent slanted red stamp on the front sleeve with the words "Disco Para Demostracion - Venda Prohibita" [Demonstration Disc - Not For Sale". These words are also printed on the record labels on either side of the CBS logo above the "Discos CBS" text. The song titles are translated into Spanish on the rear sleeve and record labels. All are good translations (says Sergio Magnacca) except "Got My Mind Made Up" which is clumsily translated as "Cambie Mi Forma De Pensar" which means "Changed My Way Of Thinking" (surprisingly similar to the title from Slow Train Coming). You Wanna Ramble is also translated here as "Quieres Pasear" (see the entry for Mexico above). The record has orange/yellow Discos CBS labels and this copy has matrix numbers: Side 1 - AL 40.439, Side 2 -BL 40.439. Surprisingly, the front sleeve has the Columbia logo at bottom right.

The commercial version has the same front and rear sleeve without the red promo stamp. The orange/yellow Discos CBS labels are the same, again without the promo text, and the record of this copy has the same stamped matrix numbers as the promo copy, but also has “© 6” stamped on both sides.

Thanks to Sergio Magnacca and Sergio Romano Romay for information and pictures.

This massive set is the latest in a series of "Complete Columbia Album Collections" featuring artists such as Miles Davis, Charlie Mingus, Duke Ellington, Dave Brubeck and even Blue Oyster Cult. The CD version of the set includes 41 Dylan albums in card sleeves, 14 of which have been remastered for this project, plus a 2CD set of previously released non-album tracks entitled Side Tracks. The albums exclude all compilations and The Bootleg Series sets, but do include the deleted 1973 Dylan album, also see 1973, and the extra 2CD set Side Tracks includes one side of the 1971 single George Jackson (Acoustic version), R-0085, see 1971. The set is therefore listed in 2013. The set also includes a hard cover book with extensive new liner notes and previously unseen photos.

All the CDs come in card sleeves. The European sleeves are made of thicker card than the US sleeves, but they are otherwise identical, so are not shown. The catalogue number on the sleeve is "88691924312JK28" plus "DISC 32". This album has been remastered, so is the tenth Dylan album remastered for this project. Thanks to Georg Thoma for reminding me that the version of Brownsville Girl on the 2007 3CD compilation Dylan is a different mix from that of the original 1986 album and that mix appears again on the 2010 US Columbia/Legacy compilation Playlist: The Very Best Of Bob Dylan '70s, see International Album Releases (Dylan-Only Compilations) 2010s. This CD has a remastered version of the original 1986 mix. The CDs are different in detail, the US Knocked Out Loaded CD has catalogue number "88691924312D32", whereas the European CD has catalogue number "88691924312-32". The European CD was made in the EU (probably Austria). The US and European copyright details are printed at the bottom of the Bob Dylan CDs, and round the circumference for The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan onwards, so I haven't shown them for the later CDs.

For more details of the set, see International Album Releases (Multi-Packs) 2010s.
