World Gone Wrong
(1993)

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 Columbia multi-packs, see International Album Releases (Regular) - Multi-Packs.


MTV Unplugged
(1995)

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 CK 66783, 15 Nov 1994.

For liner notes commissioned from Christopher Ricks that were omitted from the final release, see The Liner Notes That Sank (these notes were for an album with a slightly different tracklist).

Dignity, released here for the first time, was a previously unreleased 1989 out-take from Oh Mercy, although the version here was remixed in 1994 by Brendan O'Brien. For promo and commercial CD single releases with a radio edit of the version of Dignity from this album, see 1994. The original 1989 version of Dignity was a rarity when released on the Touched By An Angel soundtrack album in 1998. It was later released in the UK and elsewhere on The Best Of Bob Dylan Vol. 2, see 2000, on European releases of The Essential Bob Dylan, see 2001 and 2003, and finally on the 2007 3CD compilation Dylan, which meant it ceased to be a rarity.

Tracklisting: Tangled Up In Blue; Changing Of The Guards (original 6:36 version from the 1978 release of Street-Legal); Jokerman; The Groom’s Still Waiting At The Altar (1981 single, now included on the CD release of Shot of Love); Hurricane; Forever Young (slow version with The Band from Planet Waves); Dignity (out-take from Oh Mercy, remixed by Brendan O'Brien, exclusive to this album); Silvio; Ring Them Bells; Gotta Serve Somebody; Series Of Dreams (from The Bootleg Series Vols. 1-3); Brownsville Girl; Under The Red Sky; Knockin' On Heaven's Door.

Except where noted, all tracks are from the original studio albums. For international albums with the title Bob Dylan's Greatest Hits Vol. 3 with different tracklists, see International Album Releases (Dylan-only Compilations). For the CD-Plus edition of this album, with additional features accessible on Windows or Macintosh PCs, see 1995.

"Bob Dylan's Greatest Hits Vol. 3" - compilation 2LP set, Columbia 477805 1 (NL), Nov 1994:
This set was manufactured in Holland, and released in Holland and France. Was there a UK vinyl or tape release? (I only have the UK CD release.)

Columbia 477805 1 (NL) - Side 3 scan by Hans Seegers


Columbia 477805 1 (NL) - Side 4 scan by Hans Seegers

The front photo is by Ken Regan, the rear photo is by Morgan Renard and the third photo (in the cowboy jacket, and on an inner sleeve here) is by Randee St. Nicholas. This 2LP set is in a single sleeve and the two records have picture sleeves. The information sticker on the front wrongly claims Dignity is a "brand new" song - it was of course from 1989, and the original version had been in the hands of Dylan fans since at least 1990.

Thanks to Peter Pearson for information and photos, and to Hans Seegers for further information and scans. Hans Seegers' copy has plain inner sleeves. Gerd Rundel's copy has an alternate round sticker with the same text as my UK CD copy below.


"Bob Dylan's Greatest Hits Vol. 3" - compilation stereo cassette release, CBS/Sony 477805-4 (Spain), Nov 1994:


CBS/Sony 477805-4 (Spain) - outside of cassette insert, scan by Manuel García Jara

CBS/Sony 477805-4 (Spain) - inside of cassette insert, scan by Manuel García Jara

CBS/Sony 477805-4 (Spain) - cassette Side 1 scan by Manuel García Jara
This is one of the last Dylan items released in Spain by CBS/Sony when this company no longer released vinyl. It has a long folded insert with song credits on the reverse (although CBS had changed its name to Columbia everywhere else in Europe in 1991 after Sony Music bought the rights to use the Columbia name outside North America from EMI, the Columbia name was separately owned by RCA in Spain, so Sony used the Japanese CBS/Sony name in Spain in the 1990s). The insert is virtually identical to that of the US release but with Spanish copyright and, although it has all the panels, the song credits on the reverse are not complete (Tangled Up In Blue is missing!). The cassette is transparent smoked grey with white text, there are no paper labels.

Thanks to Manuel García Jara for information and scans.

Columbia 477805 4/MJM Music MJM 391 M (Poland) - cassette Side 1 photocopy by Paul Shenton
This cassette was released in Poland by MJM Music on behalf of Columbia Records. The long folded insert is virtually identical to that of the US release but with some Polish text and this time the song credits for Tangled Up In Blue are present. The cassette is transparent smoked grey with black Columbia paper labels.

Thanks to Paul Shenton for information and photocopies.

Columbia 229.045-6/1-477805 (Brazil) - detail of rear, scan by Lars M. Banke

This 2LP set is again in a single outer sleeve like the Dutch vinyl release above but the two records now have plain inner sleeves and there is a double-sided insert with the same artwork as for the Dutch inner sleeves. The records have orange Columbia labels and are numbered "229.045" and "229.046". They have handwritten matrix numbers: Side 1 - 229045 A 1 477805, Side 2 - 229045 B 1 477805, Side 3 - 229046 A 1 477805, Side 4 - 229046 b 1 477805. Although it says "(P) 1994" on the labels, the records have "(P) 1995" handwritten in the vinyl after the matrix numbers.

Thanks to Lars M. Banke for information and scans.

The design on the inside of the front insert is from the front photo, and the design on the inside of the rear insert and on the CD itself is a crop of Bob's hands from the rear photo. The front insert is a three-fold card. As far as I know these releases are still on sale in the USA and Canada.

Thanks to Gil Lamont and Jack Guerreiro for information and scans.

"Bob Dylan's Greatest Hits Vol. 3" - compilation CD release, Columbia CK 66783 (USA for Japan), Nov 1994:


Columbia CK 66783 (USA for Japan) - front with obi and sticker, scan by Keith Schweiger
This copy of the US CD release was imported into Japan by the Shinseido record store chain, who have added their own black and yellow obi with white and black text in Japanese and English with price ¥1,893. This is cheaper than the Japanese release, which cost ¥2,300 (see below). There is a light blue sticker in English promoting the "new" song Dignity. Other Japanese record chains like HMV did not package their US imports with obis, so this copy is very collectable.

Thanks to Keith Schweiger for information and scans.

GH3Front2.JPG (24482 bytes)
Columbia 477805 2 (UK) - front insert with sticker (my copy)
This release has a round white sticker on the front of the jewel case with text in black. Dignity is again misleadingly described as "brand new". The packaging is virtually identical to the US CD release.

Thanks to Éamonn Ó Catháin for the UK CD scan and to Bill Hester for the Australian CD scan. The Australian release artwork is the same as the UK release.
