The full version of 'Cross The Green Mountain was released in Oct 2008 on The Bootleg Series Vol. 8 - Tell Tale Signs: Rare And Unreleased 1989-2006, see here. This means R-0586 has ceased to be a rarity. R-0601 remains a rarity.

CD scan by Hans Seegers
R-0601 'Cross The Green Mountain - edit of original song from video (2:57)

This track is listed as 2:57, but I assume it is in fact the same as R-0601, normally listed as 3:10. The CD comes in a plain sleeve with only the Canadian pressing plant address, no track details, etc.

Thanks to Hans Seegers for information and scan.

Warner Bros 7706-WBGODS 111503 (USA) - Oscar promo CD scan by Hans Seegers

Bob took part in a shoot for the video of this song in Hollywood Cemetery, Richmond, VA, on 23 Nov 2002. He appears in period dress with a wig and beard similar to the ones he wore at the Newport Folk Festival, Newport, RI, on 3 Aug 2002! This video, 3:10 in length, is included as a bonus DVD in the Limited Edition of the soundtrack album. Scans required of the standard edition without the bonus DVD!

The bonus DVD is NTSC, but region-free and will certainly play on a Region 2 DVD player. For details of the US DVD and VHS releases of the film itself, see VHS & DVD 2000s Part 2.

Jack Guerreiro has two copies of this set, one of which has the bonus DVD made in the USA, and the other has the bonus DVD made in Mexico! Scans of both are shown for comparison - the colours are slightly different with the Mexican copy being browner. My copy is the same as his USA-made version. Thanks also to Jack of Canada for scans of the Canadian regular release without the bonus DVD. The soundtrack CD is brown rather than yellow-green.

The Warner Bros promo was sent only to members of the music branch of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in the hope of obtaining Oscar nominations for Jeff Frizzell for composition of the Best Original Score and to Bob Dylan for Best Original Song. Unfortunately this did not happen. The European release was made in Austria and has a slightly smaller front sticker than the US release - the text is exactly the same. Thanks to Hans Seegers for information and scans.

In the UK the US import Limited Edition can be obtained from Badlands, see my Trading page for contact details.

R-0020 has always been thought to have been recorded at the afternoon workshop on 27 Jul 1963, but sources such as Glen Dundas and Derek Barker (in Appendix 1 to his 2008 Chrome Dreams book "The Songs He Didn't Write: Bob Dylan Under The Influence") now think it took place on the following day. Lyrics on bobdylan.com here.

R-0022-12 Blowin' In The Wind - recorded live at the Newport Folk Festival, Newport, RI, 26 Jul 1963, originally released on the Vanguard album Evening Concerts At Newport Vol. 1, see 1964

R-0452-2 Rising Sun (Hufsteter/Larriva/Marsico/Quintana) - Bob plays harmonica for the Cruzados, 1983 (5:42)
The version from the privately-produced album released in 2000, Cruzados - Unreleased Early Recordings, is timed at 4:40, see 2000. This version at the end of CD2 has a long pause after the end of the music, followed by a voice saying "Hi! This is Bob...", thanks to Jean-Pol Hiernaux for spotting this. Thanks to Hanns Peter Bushoff for confirming that this version is indeed exactly the same as R-0452, and was sent to him by Tony Marsico. The spoken fragment is actually taken from the Columbia 1965 Miami Sales Convention message, see 1965.

Thanks to Ole Lien for information and thanks to Hanns Peter Bushoff of BMG Germany for his sterling work in compiling yet another album in this series, which was released both on CD and on vinyl, and for the promo CD-R copy. This 2CD set is a mixture of established and new (and sometimes unsigned) artists, ranging artistically from Rick Danko and the Cruzados to Eric Andersen and Onelinedrawing, and geographically from Norway via Romania to Japan. Eight tracks were recorded exclusively for this compilation.

For the previous May Your Song Always Be Sung collections see 1997 and 2001. For a Japanese single disc compilation with tracks from the first and second collections, see 2006.

There is also a 7-track single CD promotional sampler in a card sleeve, BMG 82876 52712 2, which includes R-0473. Thanks to Hanns Peter Bushoff for the sampler.

Ronald Born from Jena in Germany, who covers Black Diamond Bay on May Your Song Always Be Sung: The Songs Of Bob Dylan Vol. 3, has also contributed many scans of rarities to this site! In fact, all of the people named in the acknowledgments have contributed to this site except Jeff Rosen!

Thanks to Gerd Rundel for information and scans.


"Bob Dylan SA-CD Sampler" - promo 6-track Multichannel SA-CD, Columbia CSH 55838 (USA), 6 Jun 2003:
This was originally listed as a Dylan album tracks compilation, but was moved here when it was announced that The Bootleg Series Vol. 6: Live 1964 would be released in CD stereo only, turning the SA-CD versions of All I Really Want To Do into rarities! See below for a seven-track sampler from Oct 2003 with the same catalogue number.


Sony SA-CD May catalogue announcing the fifteen Dylan SA-CD releases

At the Home Entertainment Show in San Francisco, CA, to provide members of the media with a flavour of the Columbia/Legacy Dylan Remastered material, Columbia handed out a promo six track hybrid SA-CD for reporters who were at the event. Each of the six tracks is available on the disc in three formats: CD Stereo, SA-CD Stereo and SA-CD Surround Sound. This promo SA-CD is in a clear plastic wallet without artwork. This sampler was exclusive to the Home Entertainment Show, although a new version with an extra track was also released with the limited edition of the Masked And Anonymous soundtrack - see below.

R-0635 All I Really Want To Do - live from Philharmonic Hall, New York City, 31 Oct 1964, version in SA-CD stereo

R-0636 All I Really Want To Do - live from Philharmonic Hall, New York City, 31 Oct 1964, version in SA-CD 5.1 surround sound

The tracks on the sampler are:
1. All I Really Want To Do - from Bob Dylan Live 1964, Concert At Philharmonic Hall, The Bootleg Series, Volume 6 (this is now a rarity as the album released in Mar 2004 was in stereo only)
2. Love Minus Zero/No Limit - from Bringing It All Back Home
3. Stuck Inside Of Mobile With The Memphis Blues Again - from Blonde on Blonde
4. Tangled Up In Blue - from Blood On The Tracks
5. Gotta Serve Somebody - from Slow Train Coming
6. Moonlight - from "Love & Thef
t"

Leading off the demonstrations, Steven Berkowitz (Senior Vice President A&R, Legacy Recordings) played track one which is from a previously unreleased Bootleg Series album recorded live in 1964. He told the group that this Dylan Remastered SA-CD would be coming out in October and would be the 16th disc in the series. The song features a 22 year old Dylan, singing with some enthusiasm and raw energy. This track is also interesting since it sounds like Dylan may have had a drink or two before the performance. (There was some talk in the listening session about Dylan being "a bit tipsy").

"Bob Dylan SA-CD Sampler" - promo 7-track Multichannel SA-CD releases, Columbia CSH 55838 (USA), Aug 2003/Columbia CSH 55838000 (Europe), Oct 2003:
This was originally listed as a Dylan album tracks compilation, but was moved here when it was announced that The Bootleg Series Vol. 6: Live 1964 would be released in CD stereo only in Mar 2004, turning the live 1964 SA-CD versions of All I Really Want To Do into rarities! See above for a six-track sampler from Jun 2003 with the same catalogue number.


Columbia CSH 55838 (USA) - version given away with SA-CD players, front of card sleeve and jewel case insert, scan by Gerd Rundel

R-0635-3 All I Really Want To Do - live from Philharmonic Hall, New York City, 31 Oct 1964, version in SA-CD stereo (this is now a rarity as the album released in Mar 2004 was in stereo only)

R-0636-3 All I Really Want To Do - live from Philharmonic Hall, New York City, 31 Oct 1964, version in SA-CD 5.1 surround sound (this too is now a rarity as the album released in Mar 2004 was in stereo only)
Thanks to Éamonn Ó Catháin for a report that The Bootleg Series Vol. 6 -
Bob Dylan Live 1964: Concert At Philharmonic Hall from 2003 will finally be released on SA-CD in stereo and 5.0 surround sound remastered by Steve Hoffman in Mar 2016.

This promo SA-CD sampler has the same catalogue number as the previous one, but is actually the 7-track sampler included with the Limited Edition of Masked And Anonymous (see above) in a gatefold card sleeve. Cold Irons Bound from Masked And Anonymous is the seventh track. This CD design is different from the sampler CD.

The inside of the gatefold sleeve has a pocket on the right for the CD. On the left are the pictures of the fifteen Dylan albums being released on hybrid SA-CD in Sep 2003, on the right is a plug for The Bootleg Series Vol. 6: Live 1964 with a first look at the cover design. There is also a version of the US sampler with a slightly different rear design that was being given away with Sony SA-CD and DVD players at Christmas 2003. This has the same catalogue number but new text on the back: "CONGRATULATIONS! YOU HAVE A SPECIAL PLAYER, YOU DESERVE A SPECIAL DISC". This was available both in a card sleeve and in a jewel case.

The European version of this promo sampler has the identical card sleeve but a different CD (silver instead of white). The CD is made in Austria.

Thanks to Peter Good for finding the US sampler on eBay, to Hervé from France, Pachi Becerril, Ian Woodward and Gerd Rundel for pictures.
 


Lone Justice - "The Best Of Lone Justice: The Millennium Collection", Geffen B0000718-02 (USA), 20 Oct 2003:


Geffen B0000718-02 (USA) - front (my copy)

R-0274-2 Go Away Little Boy - Bob appears on Lone Justice's version of one of his unreleased compositions (an out-take from Empire Burlesque) - this is a remix by Bob Clearmountain of R-0163, the bonus track that appeared on the B-side of the 12" single of Sweet Sweet Baby (I'm Falling) (Remix) in 1985. Bob plays rhythm guitar. I previously said that Bob may also have played harmonica on this track - however, it's clearly stated on the 1999 and 2003 releases of the song that the harmonica was played by Maria McKee. Thanks to Jean-Pol Hiernaux for this information.
The lyrics have now been removed from bobdylan.com!

The front insert is a single sheet folded into four sections. For The World Is Not My Home: The Best Of Lone Justice, the US Geffen compilation on which this remix first appeared, see 1999.

Thanks to Ole Lien for the information.

Thanks to Jean-Pol Hiernaux for information that this CD-R is now offered by Newbury Comics as a permanent item with the same fixed twelve tracks and artwork. The front insert and rear insert are always the same. The tracks are listed on a separate A4 sheet. Note that the timing of George Jackson (5:53) is a mistake. It's 3:38 and is the acoustic version (R-0085) and not the "Big Band" version (R-0084).

For full details of the rarities, see Online Performances (Other).

Thanks to David Plentus and Jean-Pol Hiernaux for information and scans.
