R-0600 Honest With Me - radio edit (4:46) of album track from "Love And Theft"

This two-track CD-R single, released for the 2002 Grammy Awards, has no catalogue number and comes in a thin CD single jewel case. The other track is the album version of Honest With Me (5:49). The CD-R is silver - the colours are reflections from the copier.

The CD-R insert text concerns the nomination of "Love And Theft" for three Grammy Awards. For a Grammy Awards compilation album with the complete album version of Honest With Me, see International Album Releases (Various Artist Compilations) 2002.

The second one-track promo CD-R from Sony Music Studios containing the R-0600 4:46 edit of Honest With Me is dated "2/7/02". It comes in a slimline CD single jewel case with a single-sided paper insert.

Thanks to Anthony Pignataro for finding this item on eBay and to Pachi Becerril and Gerd Rundel for information and pictures.

R-0253-2 With God On Our Side - with Joan Baez , recorded live at the evening concert at the Newport Folk Festival, Newport, RI, 26 Jul 1964, previously released on the Vanguard CD Joan Baez Live At Newport, see 1997

This appearance is slightly shorter than the Joan Baez Live At Newport track, but the only difference is crowd noise cut from the end of the track so it hasn't been allocated a new R-number. This album also contains a previously unreleased performance of The Times They Are A-Changin' by Joan Baez, and Judy Collins singing Blowin' In The Wind.

Thanks to Tim Dunn for the information and for checking the performances, and thanks to Jack Guerreiro for scans. For the second album in this Vanguard series, Let Freedom Sing: This Land Is Your Land II, see 2003.


"Historical Recordings" - bonus CD single with "Love And Theft", Sony Records International SBCI 80001 (Japan), Mar 2002:
As noted in 2001 there was no Limited Edition of "Love And Theft" in Japan. The regular edition had a sticker inviting purchasers to send off a postcard to Sony Japan for the chance to win one of 2000 copies of the bonus disc or other "Dylan goods". This bonus disc did not actually arrive at the homes of the lucky winners until March 2002! Thanks to Toyohiko Tejima and Hans Seegers for information and scans.

R-0514-2 I Was Young When I Left Home (traditional) - from the "Minnesota Hotel Tape", Minneapolis, MN, 22 Dec 1961, previously appeared on a UK Emidisc test pressing in the 1960s, see Questionable Releases, now released on The Bootleg Series Vol. 7: No Direction Home, Sep 2005, in a version with a spoken intro, so R-0514 remains a rarity.
This track was one of the 42 rarities included for download with the Aug 2006 Apple iTunes Bob Dylan Collection, see Online Performances (Other). R-0514 was also released on Step Right Up!, a compilation CD given away with the Jul 2010 edition of the UK "Mojo" magazine, see 2010.

R-0515-2 The Times They Are A-Changin' - alternate take recorded Columbia Studios, New York, 23 Oct 1963, previously unreleased

The inside of the booklet is very interesting, as it gives a history of I Was Young When I Left Home and the "Minnesota Hotel Tape". The "Minnesota Hotel" was actually Bonnie Beecher's apartment in Minneapolis, MN, so-called because she allowed so many people to stay there for free! (Bonnie Beecher is now Jaharana Romney, and is married to Hugh "Wavy Gravy" Romney, the hippie political activist.) On the right-hand side is a full 26-track listing of this recording, of which only Hard Times In New York Town is available on a regular Dylan album (The Bootleg Series Vols. 1-3, 1991). Wade In The Water (R-0240) from this tape was released in 2001 on the Japanese live compilation Bob Dylan Live 1961-2000: Thirty Nine Years Of Great Concert Performances, see 2001

In The Evening and Long John from this session previously appeared on a UK Emidisc test pressing in the 1960s, see Questionable Releases

Thanks to Toyohiko Tejima for information and scans. Thanks to Gerd Rundel for finding a photo of a Sony Japan promo cassette on eBay.

The Band plus Guests - "The Last Waltz (Expanded Edition)" - 4CD set in book-style cover: Warner Bros/Rhino Records R2 78278 (USA), 16 Apr 2002, re-released later in 2002; Warner Bros/Rhino 8122-78278-2 (Australia), 2002; Warner Bros/Rhino 8122-79899-3 (Europe), 29 Sep 2008; Warner Bros/Rhino 812279319 (Europe), 9 Sep 2013:
This 4CD Expanded Edition contains 54 tracks, 24 of which are newly released, all remastered by Robbie Robertson. For the original Warner Bros 3LP 30-track set (later 2CDs), see 1978. At the same time, the original 30-track set, again remastered by Robbie Robertson, was reissued by Rhino on DVD-A (audio-only DVD in Dolby 5.1 surround sound), see below, and also as a heavyweight 180gm vinyl 3LP set and 2CD set, for both also see 1978. All reissues of the 30-track set are also in 1978, all releases of the 54-track set are here. For details of the original 1978 film see VHS & DVD 1970s, for details of the 2002 Expanded Edition see VHS & DVD 2000s Part 1. Thanks to Larry Crum for pointing out that all the Dylan tracks have been remixed and both R-0143 and R-0144 are longer than the versions on the 1978 3LP set (and those in both the 1978 and 2002 versions of the film) with longer instrumental breaks.

Warner Bros/Rhino Records R2 78278 (USA), 16 Apr 2002:
My copy comes in a 10¾" x 5¾" book style digipak with two CDs on the insides of the front and rear, and an attached long format booklet in the centre.

Warner Bros/Rhino R2 73925 (USA) - 30-track 2CD release front of slipcase, scan by Jack Guerreiro (see 1978)

Stuart Moore's Australian copy has discs manufactured in Germany, so is probably the European release.

In answer to queries, this 4CD boxed set still does not contain the complete concert - Georgia On My Mind performed by The Band is missing, and King Harvest by The Band appears in a performance from the rehearsal, not the concert performance itself. Also, the order of the concert is altered considerably. The Band played a long set on their own, then a set with guests one after the other, then a shorter set on their own again. Finally Bob came on for his set with The Band, followed by the finale. In this release the songs with guests other than Bob are misleadingly sequenced throughout the discs as they were on the original 1978 release.

In Feb 2003 Rhino also reissued the original 1978 release of The Last Waltz as a 2CD set and also as a 30-track Limited Edition 3LP 180gm vinyl boxed set. The material reproduces the original album, but is taken from the remastered 4CD 54-track release above. As it's the same format as the 1978 release, for full details see 1978.

The Band plus Guests - "The Last Waltz" - 4CD set in book-style cover: Warner Bros/Rhino Records WPCR 11281~4 (Japan), 22 May 2002:


Warner Bros/Rhino Records WPCR 11281~4 (Japan) - front of promo CD-R insert, scan by Wil Gielen
The book-style cover, the English-language booklet and the CDs in this set were imported from the USA, so they are actually Warner Bros/Rhino R2 78278. The set was assembled in Japan, a Japanese 40-page stapled booklet added and then it was shrink-wrapped with the US sticker above added to the front. Then it was shrink-wrapped a second time with a Japanese sticker covering the US sticker. There was no obi. The Japanese sticker gives the information usually on an obi such as price ¥7,980 (¥7,600 before sales tax), release date "02-5-22" (22 May 2002) and withdrawal date "03-5-21" (21 May 2003).

There was also a 14-track promo CD-R with a selection of tracks from the 4CD set including R-0630 and R-0144 (tracks 11 and 12). This came in a thin CD single jewel case with a double-sided insert. The CD-R itself was blank but is shown for completeness.

Thanks to Wil Gielen for information and scans.

R-0436-7 Blowin' In The Wind - live, Santa Cruz Civic Auditorium, Santa Cruz, CA, 16 Mar 2000, previously found on the limited edition bonus CD single given away with The Best Of Bob Dylan Vol. 2 in the UK, 2000
This is listed as "Location and date unknown", but it's actually the performance shown.

R-0272-7 Blind Willie McTell - live, Jones Beach, NY, 17 Aug 1997,same as BDC2 (see Online Performances (bobdylan.com) ), originally included on the 1998 European Love Sick CD singles, Europe and Japan, and on the Australian Tour Special Limited Edition of Time Out of Mind, for both see 1998
(This performance date is given incorrectly as "19 Feb 1998", Bob appeared in Cincinnati, OH, that night but didn't perform Blind Willie McTell! This repeats a previous misdating, as the date was wrongly given as "Feb 1998" on the Love Sick singles, although it was correct as "Aug 1997" on the Australian Time Out of Mind release.)

For the 4-track Things Have Changed Live And Unreleased CD singles given away in the USA which also contained R-0436 and R-0272, see 2001. For the 4-track Live & Rare CD singles given away in mainland Europe and Canada also see 2001.

This promo single was also released in the UK in a different card sleeve identical to that of the Aug 2002 Canadian release below, thanks to Ole Lien for information and scans. The CD is exactly the same. Thanks to Tom Willems for the information that this CD was also available in Holland - he says "There was a coupon in a newspaper, with this coupon you could get Live & Rare or Live & Rare 2 for free if you bought The Essential Bob Dylan. that was one way to get it. The other way to get Live & Rare 2 was with another coupon, which was inside Live & Rare. This coupon says you also must buy The Essential Bob Dylan to get a free Live & Rare 2 sampler."

This film is based on the novels by Rebecca Wells, and like O Brother, Where Art Thou?, has a soundtrack mixing original recordings with re-recordings of period songs by modern artists, or in Bob's case an original song in "period" style. Other artists participating are Macy Gray, Lauryn Hill, Alison Krauss, Tony Bennett, Jimmy Reed and Slim Harpo with Got Love If You Want It - for Bob's version see 1988. The soundtrack is produced by T-Bone Burnett (who also produced O Brother, Where Art Thou?) and original music in the film is by David Mansfield, both veteran colleagues of Bob.

Thanks to Peter Gilmer for release information and to Joy Munsey for researching the song. For more information see Thanks to Bill Hester for information about the Australian release, which is also available in New Zealand, and has the same yellow sticker as the US release. Details required of the UK release.

What purported to be an alternate take of Waitin' For You to the version on this soundtrack album appeared on the Sony Music Bob Dylan Custom Mix CD web-site, Apr 2003, see Online Performances (bobdylan.com). However, it was the same version as R-0552.

The German promo shown is on Columbia in a thin jewel case and has no catalogue number. The reverse of the front insert is in German. The film title is misspelled "Devine Secrets" on the CD itself. The UK promo CD-R comes in a clear plastic wallet with a folded white insert. The French promo copy (also made in Germany) comes in a standard jewel case with a large French language sticker. The English language sticker was used Europe-wide. The rear insert of the French promo is similar to the reverse of the US digipak.

The US promo copy, also DMZ/Columbia/Sony Music Soundtrax CK 86534, has the commercial packaging with a blue/white promo sticker covering the barcode. The Canadian release is identical to the USA release with the same catalogue number.

Thanks to Jean-Pol Hiernaux for scans of the European CD made in Austria, which comes in a regular jewel case with the German promo front (see above). It has copy protection which means it will not play in a PC or Apple Mac (Jean-Pol confirms this).

Thanks to Tim Dunn, Hans Seegers, Hervé from France and Stefan Haras for information and pictures.

Columbia C5K 86024 (Canada) - spine of slipcase, scan by Gerd Rundel

This set, originally released in the USA in 2001, was released in Canada to mark Bob's Canadian summer tour, Aug 2002, and has the three Greatest Hits titles plus a bonus disc which is reported on the cover to be the same as the Things have Changed: Live & Unreleased "red promo", given away in the USA in May 2001 (see 2001). Canada had a single "Live & Rare" CDNEK 1570 release in 2001 which was the same as the Things Have Changed: Live & Unreleased "blue promo", so this would have been new to them.

However, both Mary Lewis in Canada and Peter Pearson in the UK have found their copies do not contain this disc! They have instead as the bonus CD the Canadian version of the "blue promo CD", Columbia CDNEK 1570 (see 2001), this time in a card sleeve instead of a jewel case. (The CD picture is in the 2001 entry.) The US release of this boxed set also contained the "blue promo CD", again see 2001. The tracklisting of the "blue promo" is as below:

R-0469-8 Things Have Changed - Portsmouth, England, 25 Sep 2000, from the Japanese live compilation Bob Dylan Live 1961-2000: Thirty-Nine Years Of Great Concert Performances, see 2001
As well as on the Columbia US "red" and "blue" promo CD singles Things Have Changed Live & Unreleased, and the European and Canadian promo CD singles Live & Rare (for all of these see 2001), this performance is on the Columbia UK promo CD The Voice Of Every Generation (also see 2001) and on the revised released of the Japanese 2CD compilation Dylan Ga Rock (see 2010).

R-0436-8 Blowin' In The Wind - Santa Cruz Civic Auditorium, Santa Cruz, CA, 16 Mar 2000, previously included on a bonus live CD with the UK release of The Best Of Bob Dylan Vol. 2, see 2000

R-0272-7 Blind Willie McTell - Jones Beach, NY, 17 Aug 1997 - same as BDC2 (see Online Performances (bobdylan.com) ), originally included on the 1998 European Love Sick CD singles, see 1998

R-0271-7 Roving Gambler (traditional) - El Rey Theater, Los Angeles, 17 Dec 1997, originally included on the 1998 European Love Sick CD singles, see 1998

If anyone actually has a copy of this boxed set with the "red promo", please let me know!

The front sticker advertises the Canadian tour dates in Aug 2002. There is also included what appears to be the promo leaflet from the 2001 US release of this set - it advertises the "Love And Theft" CD and the US Arena Tour starting 5 Oct 2001.

Thanks to Gil Walker for finding this item on eBay, to Mary Lewis and Gerd Rundel for scans, and to Peter Pearson for his help on clearing up the "red promo"/"blue promo" confusion!


"Live & Rare 2" - promo CD single, Columbia CDNEK 1625 (Canada), Aug 2002:
This single was given away with Dylan albums in Canada when Bob was touring there in Aug 2002. It's the same Live & Rare 2 CD single given away in the UK in May 2002 when Bob was touring there (see above), with different catalogue number and artwork. Thanks to Mary Lewis for the information this CD comes in a standard jewel case with a front folded insert only.

Slightly longer edits of this performance were also included on the 1998 compilation albums Vanguard Sessions: Folk Hits and Vanguard Sessions: Folk Duets (for both see 1998)

All the advance publicity for this album and artwork still shown on online retailers' web-sites showed the album title as Kindred Spirits: A Tribute To The Music Of Johnny Cash - obviously there was a very late name change!

Lucky Dog CK 83610 (USA) - promo album cover from Sony Nashville web-site (the "Music" title)

R-0554 Train Of Love (Johnny Cash) - from the Johnny Cash Tribute TV special, broadcast from the Hammerstein Ballroom, New York City, 5 Apr 1999 (Bob's performance had been recorded earlier and was shown on video)

Thanks to Tim Dunn for this news item from Wes Orshoski in "Billboard", 30 Mar 2002: "Also being considered" is a "companion" DVD "featuring in-the-studio and live footage and to be released simultaneously with the tribute record." Orshoski says Kindred Spirits is a "by-product" of the 1999 tribute because, due to label disagreements about royalties, the proposed live album and video of that event "won't see daylight anytime soon." "As a result, Springsteen's and Dylan's performances from that show were transferred onto Kindred Spirits..."

R-0593 Knockin' On Heaven's Door - overdubbed version on charity album

Originally reported as a new recording, this is actually the album version from Pat Garrett & Billy The Kid with overdubbing from a chorus of girls from the Sabera Foundation, Calcutta, India, plus local musicians.

The Sabera Foundation is a Spanish charity that raises funds for homeless street children in India, and is supported by film stars Antonio Banderas and Penelope Cruz. Apparently many of the songs were recorded at the Hollywood home of Antonio Banderas and Melanie Griffith. Other artists appearing include Sting, Elton John and Ricky Martin.

A Spanish promo CD of this album was released by Universal with the title of just Fundación Sabera. I have no information about a Spanish commercial release.

For more information, see . Thanks to Harold Lepidus and Freddy Ordoñez Araque for information about this album and to Manuel García Jara for scans of the Spanish promo.

R-0153-3 Pledge My Head To Heaven (Keith Green) - Bob plays harmonica

Although this track appeared in a remixed version on Keith Green's 1983 album I Only Want To See You There (R-0160, see 1983), this is a remastered version of the original mix from Keith's deleted Pretty Good Records US album So You Wanna Go Back To Egypt... (see 1980), and the best version available on CD. The CD is accompanied by an hour-long documentary on DVD called "Keith Green - Your Love Breaks Through", which includes footage of Bob. Keith Green was killed in an air crash on 28 Jul 1982.

Thanks to Freddy Ordoñez Araque and Anthony Pignataro for information about this album and to Jean-Pol Hiernaux for scans. This album is now also available for download from iTunes.

Live1975DVD3.jpg (17190 bytes)
Columbia Legacy 510140 1 (Europe) - Bonus DVD, Bob singing Isis (audio only)

The two performances on film on the bonus DVD are:

R-0245-3 Tangled Up In Blue (video) - live, Boston, MA, 21 Nov 1975 (evening show), from Renaldo & Clara (see VHS & DVD 1970s) This video previously appeared in the 1998 video Rolling Stone: 20 Years Of Rock 'N' Roll (see VHS & DVD 1990s Part 2), and the CD+ version of Bob Dylan's Greatest Hits Vol. 3 (see 1995)

R-0596 Isis (Bob Dylan/Jacques Levy) (video) - live, Montreal, Canada, 4 Dec 1975, from Renaldo & Clara (see VHS & DVD 1970s), edited performance (4:10), previously unreleased
Thanks to Larry Crum for pointing out the audio part of this is a new mix and an edit of R-0533, see below.

These are complemented by an audio performance in Dolby 5.1 sound:

R-0533 Isis (Bob Dylan/Jacques Levy) (audio) - live, Montreal, Canada, 4 Dec 1975, as above but complete performance (5:21), remix of original complete stereo audio performance released on 4 Songs From "Renaldo & Clara" (see 1978), on US and Dutch 7" Jokerman singles (see 1984), and Biograph (see 1985)
Thanks to Larry Crum for pointing this out.

I thought initially the release of this album disqualified one performance from the Searching For A Gem list:

R-0137 It Ain't Me, Babe - live with the Rolling Thunder Revue, Harvard Square Theatre, Cambridge, MA, 20 Nov 1975
This performance was originally released on the 1978 US Columbia promo 12" EP 4 Songs From "Renaldo & Clara" (see 1978). It also appeared on the Japanese promo CD Mr. D's Collection #3 (see 1993), European Dignity CD singles (see 1995), and the Japanese live compilation CD Bob Dylan Live 1961-2000: Thirty Nine Years Of Great Concert Performances (see 2001)

Larry Crum has now pointed out the version here is a remix of that performance, so R-0137 remains a rarity.

The US Bonus DVD shown here from Hervé from France is a promo and has the additional text "FOR PROMOTIONAL USE ONLY - NOT FOR SALE". Thanks also to Wil Gielen for the Japanese scan.

Peter van der Kerk informs me that when he bought his copy of the Limited Edition in an independent record shop in Holland, he received free copies of the promotional CD singles Live & Rare (see 2001) and Live & Rare 2 (see above)! I haven't heard of this anywhere else, so it may be a promotion from that shop only.

Another song from these four shows which has already appeared officially but is sadly not included in this set is:

R-0138 Never Let Me Go (Joseph C. Scott) - live duet with Joan Baez from The Forum, Montreal, Canada, 4 Dec 1975, from the Columbia promo 12" EP 4 Songs From "Renaldo & Clara" (see 1978), also released on the 1993 Japanese promo CD Mr. D's Collection # 3 (see 1993)

R-0746
Tangled Up In Blue
(Alternate Live Version) - live, Boston Music Hall, 21 Nov 1975 (evening show), with extended intro, unique to this 7" single
Hans Seegers says:
"The CD version (Boston Music Hall, 21 Nov 1975, evening show) starts simply with guitar and singing, time 4:40. The 7” single performance starts with Dylan's guitar. Dylan coughs twice, then someone in the audience asks for Masters of War, Dylan answers with "What!". While he is still playing the intro to Tangled Up In Blue he asks "Larry, are you still there?" and then starts the song (time 4:53). So, the important question now is - in which show did he ask for Larry?" (Presumably Larry Sloman.)

Thanks to Les Kokay's booklet "Sounds of the Underground: A Collector's Guide to the Rolling Thunder Revue 1975-1976" for positively identifying the call for Larry as having taken place at the Boston evening show.

R-0596-2 Isis (Bob Dylan/Jacques Levy) (Alternate Live Version) - Montreal, Canada, 4 Dec 1975, from Renaldo & Clara (see VHS & DVD 1970s), edited performance (4:10)
Thanks to Larry Crum for pointing out this is an edit of the audio part of R-0533, see above.

Thanks to Hans Seegers and Franck Faugere for information and scans of this vinyl edition.
