This is part of a separate multi-year list by release date of international (now including the USA, which was once listed separately) promo and commercially-released stereo 7" and 12" singles that have been referred to me but do not qualify for my Searching For A Gem list because they contain only performances which are available on officially released Dylan albums. Nevertheless, their interest value or scarcity means they're worth listing here - as far as I know many are not included on any other Internet site. Special thanks to Hans Seegers for many of these items! Stereo promo versions of commercially released singles that were formerly listed in the Promotional Items sections of the yearly pages are now listed here. I would also like to include cassette singles here, but I don't have any, and none have been notified to me so far.

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!

1980


"Gotta Serve Somebody" - 12" "Special Club" single, CBS SDC 31 (France), 1980:


CBS SDC 31 (France) - front scan by Hans Seegers
This very rare "Special Club" France-only edition 12" single for DJs has the same track on both sides (the regular album version from Slow Train Coming). The reverse of the sleeve is blank except for the CBS France address, etc.

For 7" versions of this French single with Gonna Change My Way Of Thinking as the B-side, see below.

Thanks to Hans Seegers for information and scans.

"Gotta Serve Somebody"/"Gonna Change My Way Of Thinking" - 7" promo and commercial singles, CBS 8134 (NL), 31 Dec 1979; CBS 8134 (France), Jan 1980; S CBS 8134 (UK), 18 Jan 1980:

GottaServeFrFront.jpg (22813 bytes)
CBS 8134 (France) - front scan by Hans Seegers (commercial version)

Gotta Serve Somebody is mistakenly listed as being the 3:57 edited version issued on other worldwide singles (R-0148, see 1979), but it is in fact the 5:23 full album version! Thanks to Hans Seegers for notifying me of this error by CBS. However, Onno Mastenbroek informs me that his copy of the UK promo release of S CBS 8134 does indeed play the edited version (actually timed at 3:52). I've therefore added it to 1980. I assume the French and Dutch singles play the full album track.

Even though they had the same catalogue number as the Spanish single shown in 1979 with an edited A-side and Trouble In Mind as the B-side, these versions of CBS 8134 had the full album track as the A-side and Gonna Change My Way Of Thinking (album version) as the B-side. The UK singles (now also listed in 1980) had no picture sleeve and came in the generic CBS UK sleeve illustrated. The promo single is dated 18 Jan 1980.

There is a Dec 1979 French test pressing of CBS 8134 that correctly shows the timing of Gotta Serve Somebody as 5:23 - see US & International Stereo Singles & EPs 1979. The first French single has "injection" labels - in this case a thin brown 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 second has standard CBS orange/yellow paper labels.

Stefan Haras has a promo copy of the Dutch single intended for West Germany with rubber stamped text in German "Unverkäufliches Muster [Sample Not for Sale]" on the rear sleeve.

Thanks to Hans Seegers, Gerard Germano and Stefan Haras for information and scans.


"Knockin' On Heaven's Door"- 7" stereo single, CBS 8333 (Italy), 26 Feb 1980:

KOHDItalyFront.JPG (34929 bytes)
CBS 8333 (Italy) - front (my copy)
This single has the live version of the song from Bob Dylan At Budokan as "Version Reggae" and the original version from the soundtrack album of Pat Garrett & Billy The Kid as "Version Originale"! It was released in Italy in conjunction with a TV series "Nel Crepuscolo Del Western [In The Western Twilight]".

Thanks to Sergio Mariano Romay for pointing out that the original version is the A-side (CI CBS 8333-1N), and the Budokan version (CI CBS 8333-2N) is the B-side. The records of both Sergio's and my copies have the same handwritten matrix numbers: Side 1: CI 8333-1N  26-2-80, Side 2: CI 8333-2N  26-2-80.  "26-2-80" (26 Feb 1980) will be the pressing date, as usual in Italian matrix numbers. This single has therefore been moved from the 1979 stereo singles listing.

Because these singles contain a rarity on the A-side (4:15 edit of the full album version of 5:57), full details are in 1980. The US promo single also exists in versions with the A-side on both sides. There were two variants of the US commercial single. The Canadian single did not have a picture sleeve.

Thanks to Sam C. Visser, Tom Willems, Manuel García Jara and Stefan Haras for information and scans.


"Solid Rock" - promo 12" single, Columbia AS 798 (USA), May 1980:


Columbia AS 798 (USA) - 12" promo single, front scan by Patrick Helfrich (black sleeve)

This white label promo had Solid Rock from the Saved album on the A-side and Are You Ready? and What Can I Do For You? on the B-side. It was in a plain black or white card sleeve, cut out to show the record label, with a promotional sticker with the words "Three songs from 'Saved', Bob Dylan's forthcoming album" on the front and a gold promo stamp on the rear.

The Italian single has the same tracks and catalogue number as the Dutch and Spanish singles, but a different front design (the picture that was used as the album's front sleeve in the USA from 1985, see International Albums (Regular) ). Thanks to Guiseppe Gazerro for this single!

Both tracks are the album versions from Saved. As far as I know this is the only international release of this single, which did not have a picture sleeve. The promo releases had white CBS labels while the commercial release had orange/yellow CBS labels.

One promo copy owned by Hans Seegers has the release date of "23 Sep 1980" stamped on the A-side. The promo copy owned by Manuel García Jara has a date of "24 Sep 1980" stamped on the A-side. All three promo B-sides are identical. The B-side is the full 6:03 version from Saved, not the 4:35 edit that was paired with Solid Rock, see above and 1980.

CBS A1640 (UK) - proof artwork for withdrawn sleeve with "Lennie" misprint, complete scan by Hans Seegers

For Dutch and Spanish releases of this single with the same tracks and catalogue number but with Dead Man, Dead Man as the A-side, see below.

Both tracks are the regular album versions from Shot Of Love. For singles with a live version of Dead Man, Dead Man from 10 Nov 1981, see 1989.

This UK single also exists as a very rare variation with the title on the sleeve misspelled as "Lennie". These were withdrawn before release when the mistake was discovered, but some copies "escaped" into the public domain, as the one from Michael Gray shown. The single inside is correct. No other countries have this variant because it was unintended!

Hans Seegers has a unique proof copy of the artwork for this misprint sleeve - it is a single sheet of white card approx. 14" x 21½", with black printing and an annotated sheet of tracing paper in front, plus a cover sheet. The rear of the sheet is black with the "CS10" design shown - this is the name of the manufacturer of the card, not the printers, whose name doesn't appear.

Thanks to Magnus Sjöberg and Hans Seegers for information and scans of the promo single. Thanks to David Burgess for information about the commercial single, and thanks to Hans Seegers for scans. Thanks to Michael Gray and Hans Seegers for information and scans of the "Lennie" misprint.

"Hombre Muerto, Hombre Muerto [Dead Man, Dead Man]"/"Amor Submarino [Watered-Down Love]" - 7" promo single, Discos CBS DEP-200 (Argentina), 1981:
This translation of "Watered-Down Love" causes amusement amongst Spanish speakers - "Amor Submarino" means "Underwater Love"! A closer translation of "watered-down" would be "diluido" (diluted). The Argentinean Shot Of Love album release, Discos CBS 20.251, has the same mistake.


Discos CBS DEP-200 (Argentina) - A-side scan by Hans Seegers
This single with orange Discos CBS labels was promo only and is very rare. As far as I know it came in a generic sleeve.

Information from Eduardo Gomez Kodela, further Thanks to Hans Seegers for information and scans.

"Jokerman" - promo 12" singles, CBS 51.030/CBS Especial 620.074 (Brazil), 1983:

The first version shown above left has the picture from the inner sleeve of the Infidels album on the front of the sleeve, lyrics of the song on the reverse, and has identical black and white record labels on both sides.

The second version shown above right has the picture from the front of the Infidels album on the front of the sleeve and a rubber stamp with the words "EDIÇÃO LIMITADA" [LIMITED EDITION]. Usually these singles with the same track on both sides have two identical labels, but on this one the sides are marked as "A" and "B". Jim Siddy says this was a "private enterprise" release by some CBS Brazil staff members rather than an official Discos CBS Brazil release!

"Union Sundown"/"Licence To Kill" - two-sided test pressing, CBS (no catalogue number) (UK), Nov 1983:


A-side scan by Hans Seegers
This very rare double-sided test pressing is unique in that it was not released commercially in this form. The B-side of this record (labelled "B45") was replaced by the Infidels out-take Angel Flying Too Close to the Ground (R-0156) and has indeed been crossed out. The replacement B-side on a separate acetate (labelled "B452") is shown for completeness. For the commercial UK single, see 1983.
