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 1999 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:

Various Artists - "3FM Hard To Find Classics Vol. 1" - 2CD set, BR Music BS 8202-2 (NL), 1999:

BR Music BS 8202-2 (NL) - front scan by Hans Seegers

Wim Vuijck says: "In Holland Dylan's best selling record was a single (vinyl, of course) release of Wigwam (still people are thinking that he is best known for his lyrics......). Anyway, lately Wigwam was released on a (sort of) greatest hits CD called Hard To Find. It is a compilation of songs by various artists, the compilation was made by 'Radio 3 FM' disc jockeys. Radio 3 FM is a nationwide (in Holland that's not so special!) pop/rock radio station. Indeed, this CD is hard to find, my local CD store is telling me all the time they ordered a copy but it never shows up. Nevertheless, since Dylan songs are not usually released on compilation CDs and greatest hits CDs, and since Wigwam is not the most wanted Dylan song for this kind of CDs, I thought you might like to know... Wim"

Thanks to Hans Seegers for further information and scans. Hans is of the opinion that this compilation was not in fact that hard to find!
