R-0102-4 Big Yellow Taxi (Joni Mitchell) - from the now deleted album Dylan, see 1973

The other tracks on the EP are Handy Dandy from Under The Red Sky, Man In The Long Black Coat from Oh Mercy and Knockin' On Heaven's Door from Pat Garrett & Billy The Kid - all the regular album versions. Of course, Big Yellow Taxi is not a "Dylan Original" composition, although it can certainly be said to be a "Dylan Original" performance! J

The reverse of the front insert is blank, and the rear insert has details of Bob's concert dates at the SECC, Glasgow, and the Hammersmith Odeon, London, in Feb 1991. It also has details of nine older Dylan albums just released on CD in 1991 - these include Dylan (A Fool Such As I) (again see 1973), although as far as I know it was never actually released in the UK. The CD itself has the Columbia logo and "PROMO CD" vertically just to the left of the centre hole.

Thanks to Erik Grobet for placing this entry correctly in 1991.

Hervé from France has this EP in a limited edition box together with The Bootleg Series Vols. 1-3. Hans Seegers says this item, though very attractive, is actually unofficial.


"Special Audio Buyway featuring excerpts from Bob Dylan/The Rolling Stones" - in-store promotional cassette, Columbia 47382 (USA), Jan 1991:


Columbia 47382 (USA) - outside of cassette insert, scan by Gerd Rundel

R-0535 Excerpts of songs from The Bootleg Series Vols. 1-3 on promo cassette - the songs are as listed on the insert (below left) except for an unlisted excerpt from Suze (The Cough Song)

This cassette has Bob Dylan with tracks from The Bootleg Series (Rare & Unreleased) 1961-1991 and the Rolling Stones with tracks from Flashpoint. Commentary is by DJ Kid Leo, formerly of Radio WMMS, Cleveland, OH, but by then a Columbia Records employee. There is no interview material. This is not, as previously reported, a projected radio broadcast, but an in-store promotional item prepared by Kid Leo on behalf of Columbia Records - apparently there were several similar Columbia "Special Audio Buyway" tapes.

Thanks to Anthony Pignataro for finding this item on eBay and to Gerd Rundel for scans. Anthony's copy has the same insert but a plain white cassette with no text (not shown), Gerd's is as shown with a transparent smoked grey cassette case and white text. Thanks to Tim Dunn for the correcting the previous entry, and for the information that "Kid Leo" is now Vice President of Special Products and Artist Development at Columbia Records under his real name of Lawrence James Travagliante.

R-0203 Series Of Dreams - edit of track from The Bootleg Series Vols. 1-3 (4:52 - second verse missing, but with a clear start, not the cross-fade on The Bootleg Series Vols. 1-3)

Thanks to John Harju for reminding me that the Bootleg Series version fades in as the previous track, "When The Night Comes Falling From The Sky", fades out. This doesn't happen on the Greatest Hits 3 version. For all the officially-released versions of Series Of Dreams, see below.

The other 11 tracks on the sampler CD and cassette are the versions from the boxed set. The cassette has a clear plastic case with white text, there are no paper labels.

Thanks to Manuel García Jara for information and scans.

R-0203-3 Series Of Dreams - 4:49 edit of version on The Bootleg Series Vols. 1-3

Onno Mastenbroek reports that the Series Of Dreams promotional video had a different edit, not the same as this - any further information?

The 12" single version is reported to be the full Bootleg Series Vols. 1-3 version (5:52, without the cross-fade) - more information required! Alan Hoaksey also reports a promo 12" version - more details required also! The B-side of the 7" single and the second track on the 2-track CD singles was Seven Curses. Ralph Austin reports a rumoured 4-track CD single, CBS 656707-5, but it seems not to have been released. I have also had reports of a UK single CBS 656707-7 but I have not found it so far. My copy was made in Holland.

Thanks to Tom Willems for a "Sony Music Presents" promo letter sent out with the Dutch single from Holland to German addresses.

Thanks to Hans Seegers, Peter Good and Brian Clarke for information and scans.


"The Bootleg Series Vols. 1-3 [Rare and Unreleased] 1961-1991" - 3CD boxed set, Columbia 468086 2 (Europe)/5LP boxed set. Columbia 468086 1 (Europe), Mar 1991:
These sets were made in Austria for distribution throughout Europe. Some sets were packaged with a free T-shirt - see below.

R-0212 Series Of Dreams - edit (5:37) This final track is 5:37 on the UK CD version of this boxed set (in the 12" LP-sized box), but 5:52 with a longer fadeout on the cassette and vinyl version. I'm informed by Tracy Zank that the US "long box" format of the set has this track at 5:52.

Thanks to Derek Davies for confirming that the track on his copy plays at 5:37, even though it is listed as 5:52 on the CD3 rear insert and CD3 itself.

Columbia 468086 1 (Europe) - scan by David Burgess of sleeve of LP5 of vinyl version, showing timing of Series Of Dreams at 5:52 (not the rarity, although the vinyl version is a very sought-after collector's item)

The 1994 single album Bob Dylan's Greatest Hits Vol. 3 has the 5:54 version (see 1994 for the CD-Plus release), as has the jewel-case 1997 UK reissue of The Bootleg Series Vols. 1-3. For details of these, see  International Albums (Regular). The regular CD singles, Columbia 656 707-2 (Australia) and CBS 656 707-5 (Austria for Europe) and the 12" single have the regular full-length version, but without the cross-fade start, as now on Greatest Hits Vol. 3 (see International Singles 1990s.

To summarise, there are three officially released takes of Series Of Dreams (two from 1991 and an alternate take that appeared in 2008). The first take occurs in five versions!

1    The regular US album version which occurs in five variants as follows:

1A    5:52 with cross-fade start on the US CD and other releases (not a rarity)

1B    The version on the UK CD version of The Bootleg Series Vols. 1-3, 5:37 edit of (1) with cross-fade start (R-0212)

1C    The 12" and commercial CD single version, 5:54, (1) without cross-fade start (not a rarity because it's on Greatest Hits Vol. 3)

1D    The first promo CD and 7" single version, 4:49-4:52 edit of the album version (1) with second verse missing and without cross-fade start (R-0203)

1E    The promotional video edit of (1) (4:22) (R-0676 - appeared on a Brazilian DVD in 2004, see Questionable Video)

2    The second promo CD version from the European 5-track CD sampler above, full-length alternate take with lyric differences, also without cross-fade start (R-0204, 5:52)

3    The second full-length alternate take (6:27) from The Bootleg Series Vol. 8 - Tell Tale Signs: Rare And Unreleased 1989-2006, released in 2008

There are also two more unreleased alternate takes that circulate amongst Dylan collectors, one of which matches the published lyrics (which the officially released takes don't) and a so-called "fast" version. This is how I understand the situation, if anyone has any further information, please let me know.

Thanks to Peter van der Kerk and Michel Pomarede for information and to Hans Seegers, David Burgess and Derek Davies for further information and scans about the 3CD release with the free T-shirt.

3rd Bass - "Derelicts Of Dialect" - CD release, Def Jam/Columbia CK 47369 (USA), 18 Jun 1991, reissued as Def Jam 314 523 502-2 (USA), Jul 1994:

R-0230 Herbalz In Your Mouth (Bob Dylan-Paul Huston-Peter Nash-Michael Berrin) - a sample of I'll Be Your Baby Tonight is included in this track and Bob is credited as co-author

Many expert ears have listened to this track and failed to identify the Dylan song (which is not specified in the copyright registration)! However, in "The Bob Dylan Copyright Files Supplement 1", a June 2001 addition to his book "The Bob Dylan Copyright Files", Tim Dunn identified the song, based on his knowledge of SESAC work numbers, as I'll Be Your Baby Tonight from John Wesley Harding.

Thanks to Jack Guerreiro for the scans.

The artwork for the cancelled album also circulates amongst collectors.

A re-recorded version of the song without Bob appears on the US Hallmark 2006 Beach Boys compilation of unreleased tracks, Songs From Here & Back.

According to Rob van Estrik this release is remastered and thus recommended over the version on the original album.
