Oh Mercy
(1989)

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.

This page is incomplete - more entries required. For releases of this album in CBS/Columbia multi-packs, see International Album Releases (Regular) - Multi-Packs.


The Bootleg Series Vols. 1-3
(1991)

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!

US release, Columbia 46794 (LP), CT 46794 (MC), CK 46794 (CD), 11 Sep 1990.

The album dedication to "Gabby Goo Goo" is now thought to be to Desiree Gabrielle Dennis-Dylan, Bob's daughter by Carolyn Dennis, born on 31 Jan 1986. At the time it was thought the front photograph was taken in Israel, but it was actually in the Mojave Desert in California. The rear photograph shows Bob on a front porch somewhere in the USA, with a US flag in one of the flower urns. Both photographs are copyrighted by Bob himself, but credited to Camouflage Photo, which doesn't actually exist!

Thanks to Dag Braathen for scans of a Columbia US promo leaflet punched for storage in a ring binder and sent to record stores with details of promotional activities and album ordering information, and also for photos of a 24" x 12" poster with additional text ""Happy 50th Birthday Bob! May 24, 1991". Thanks to Steve Joyce for information from a Don Was interview that, although uncredited, all the accordion playing on this album was by Bob himself.

Out-takes from this album have been officially released as follows:

The Bootleg Series Vol. 8 - Tell Tale Signs: Rare And Unreleased 1989-2006 (2008): Born In Time (original version from Oh Mercy - two alternate takes); God Knows (original version from Oh Mercy).

Both promo and commercial records play exactly the same tracks as all other worldwide releases.

The album title on the front is in Spanish only, while the vinyl release has the title in both English and Spanish. As on the vinyl release, the song titles are translated into Spanish on both the insert and the cassette, with the English titles on the outside of the insert only.

"Under The Red Sky" - CD releases, CBS 467188 2 (Austria for Europe), 10 Sep 1990; Columbia 467188 2 (Austria for Europe), 1991:


CBS 467188 2 (Europe) - front of jewel case with sticker (my copy, album title in black)
This release, manufactured in Austria for distribution throughout Europe, is the same as the US release apart from the catalogue number. The front of the jewel case has a purple sticker with pink text promoting the guest artists. The sticker has the same text as the LP sticker and the US CD sticker shown above.

The front insert is a stapled multi-page booklet. The producer's name "Jack Frost" (a pseudonym for Bob) is misspelled as "Jack Forst" on the CBS CD, which is silver with red panels and black text. The Columbia release has a slightly different front insert, with the album title in red, and a redesigned CD text layout with seven song titles beneath the centre hole instead of six - the producer information is now missing. This is the release on sale today.

Thanks to Hans Seegers for scans of the Columbia European release.

Columbia 467188 2 (Australia) - front scan by Stuart Moore (first variant)
The Australian Columbia CD has a completely different design from the Australian CBS CD, which was made in Australia by Disctronics. Stuart Moore has two different copies of Columbia 467188 2 with the second release CD, distinguished by the fact that the inserts on the first copy are much darker, the CDs are the same. The differences between the three Columbia CDs, which were made in Australia by Sony, are:
  1. Red Sony Music Australia text to right of centre hole on three lines.
  2. Red text on four lines, "MUSIC ENTERTAINMENT" on line three.
  3. Red text on four lines, "ENTERTAINMENT" on line three.

Columbia/Legacy/Sony Music 88697742502 (Austria for Europe) - front of slipcase


Columbia/Legacy/Sony Music 88697742502 (Austria for Europe) - rear of slipcase

This release comes as part of a 3CD set Original Album Classics: Bob Dylan containing three not as yet remastered albums: Empire Burlesque (1985), Down In The Groove (1988) and Under The Red Sky (1990). As the price per set is only £8.99 it's very unlikely these have been remastered now. Other artists in this series include Miles Davis, Charlie Mingus, Patti Smith and Jeff Buckley. The three albums are in card sleeves inside a CD-width slipcase. The individual albums are numbered 88697742502CD1, 88697742502CD2 and 88697742502CD3.

The picture on the front of the slipcase comes from 1986's Hard To Handle video of Bob live with Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, see VHS & DVDs 1980s.

Thanks to Steven Jump of Badlands for the information.

Columbia/Legacy/Sony Music 88691924312-36 (Europe) - detail of CD36, scan by Manuel García Jara

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 "88691924312JK32" plus "DISC 36". This album has been remastered, so is the twelfth Dylan album remastered for this project. The CDs are different in detail, the US Under The Red Sky CD has catalogue number "88691924312D36", whereas the European CD has catalogue number "88691924312-36". 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.
