There must be hundreds of these albums from round the world! 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!

This is a separate multi-year list by release date of commercially-released Various Artist stereo compilation albums released in 1998 that have been referred to me but do not qualify for my Searching For A Gem list because they contain only Bob Dylan 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 some are not included on any other Internet site. Promo-only Various Artist compilation albums with Dylan tracks and Radio Station Albums are included here also. Other International Albums and Compilations are now here:

LI 9810 (France) - front of card sleeve, scan by Hans Seegers

Bob's contribution to this compilation is Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues, the live version from Manchester, May 1966, from The Bootleg Series Vol. 4: Live 1966, see International Album Releases. The album was released on 12 Oct 1998, so this was a preview.

I wrongly had this listed before as live from Liverpool, May 1966, the B-side of 1966 I Want You single (R-0054, see 1966).

Thanks to Antoine Glemain for the information and Hans Seegers for the scans.

Hungry For Music HFM 003 (USA) - CD scan by Hans Seegers

This CD of baseball-related songs compiled by Jeff Campbell was released by charity Hungry For Music to benefit the Negro Leagues Baseball Museum and the Jackie Robinson Foundation. Bob's contribution is Catfish, the 1975 out-take from Desire released in 1991 on The Genuine Bootleg Series Vols. 1-3. This track was wrongly listed as a longer edit and therefore a rarity, but it is exactly the same length as on that album, at 2:48.

According to amazon.com this CD was re-released on 28 Mar 2000 as Diamond Cuts Vol. 1: Play Ball. ("Play Ball" is the text on the reverse of the rear insert.) There are now seven compilation CDs in the Diamond Cuts series, but none of the subsequent releases feature Bob. For a 2005 4CD set with Catfish entitled The Great American Baseball Set, see the page in this list covering 2005.

Thanks to Freddy Ordoñez Araque for pointing out this set and to Hans Seegers for scans.

Front of 2CD set, picture from amazon.co.uk
Bob's contribution to this 2CD/two cassette set is Lay, Lady, Lay from Nashville Skyline. Bob's music has featured regularly in this 1960s set series, although it has only been included in two of the several soundtrack albums that have been released. For Heartbeat Love Songs, also a 2CD set, see the 2003 page of this Various Artists listing.

Thanks to Stuart Moore for information.

The Canadian copy is very similar, with the same front design. The design on the reverse of the rear insert is a bowling ball!

Although the German CD release below was exported to the UK, the UK had its own release of this album with a different long folded front insert. This CD was bought in UK at the time and, although "Made in UK" is not found anywhere, the CD itself has the UK copyright "MCPS" logo (Mechanical Copyright Protection Society, the former "MECOLICO").

Mercury 536 903-2 (Germany) - CD release, 1998:


Mercury 536 903-2 (Germany) - front scan by Hans Seegers

This CD release again has different artwork, similar to that of the German LP release. The German CD release was exported to the UK and Holland.

As far as I can see the rear insert and CD are the same as those in Manuel's UK-bought copy above. The unfolded front insert is probably the same as that of Manuel's France-bought copy below.

Mercury 536 903-2 (France) - CD release, 1998:


Mercury 536 903-2 (France) - front scan by Manuel García Jara
This CD was bought in France some years after the premiere of this movie. The artwork is probably identical to that of the German CD above, but the disc itself is very different and it has "Made in USA" as shown. However, the disc is also different from the Canadian CD shown above, which I assume is similar to the commercial US CD. The reverse of the rear insert (the bowling ball picture) is in red instead of monochrome as on the Canadian release above.

550 Music/Sony Music Soundtrax BK 68971 (USA) - front of jewel case with sticker (my copy)
This compilation contained a Dylan rarity, the original 1989 out-take version of Dignity from Oh Mercy, not the Brendan O'Brien remix included in 1994's Greatest Hits Vol. 3. Full details were previously in 1998. As the rarity has now been included in the 2007 3CD compilation Dylan, this album is now listed in Released Rarities.

Thanks to Hans Seegers for scans of the European CD, made in Austria for France and Holland. The artwork is virtually identical to my US copy apart from the front sticker.
