This page is part of a list of original releases by release date of international commercially-released multi-packs of regular stereo Dylan albums. These are listed here to save multiple entries on each album page. 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.

These pages are still incomplete - 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!

The four sets shown each come in a slipcase with 3CDs. The albums included are illustrated on the cover on the right hand side of each slipcase. The sets are made in Austria for distribution in Europe. France has different releases, see below.

Columbia 509638-2 - Blood On The Tracks (467842-2), Desire (CD 32570), Street-Legal (COL 494788-2, this is the remastered release)

This set contains Oh Mercy, Time Out Of Mind and "Love And Theft". I assume Oh Mercy is the 2004 remastered CD release (the CD layer of the 2003 hybrid SA-CD release). Time Out Of Mind has not yet been released in a remastered form and the CD layer of "Love And Theft" did not have to be remastered for the 2003 release. The US set is in a book-style digipak, the European release is in a box with the three albums in jewel cases.

The front photo appears to be unique to the set. The sticker is the same for both the US and European releases.

Thanks to Hans Seegers, Tim Dunn, David Plentus, Éamonn Ó Catháin and Jack Guerreiro for information about these sets. Thanks to Hans Seegers and Jack Guerreiro for scans.

"Bob Dylan Album Collection" - promo 14CD boxed set, Sony Music MHCP 369-382 (Japan), 18 Aug 2004/23 Sep 2004:


Sony Music MHCP 369-382 (Japan) - picture from hmv.co.jp
The fourteen remastered CDs (the CD layers of the hybrid SA-CD releases, see above) were released in Japan in "LP-style" packaging on 18 Aug 2004 and 23 Sep 2004. They are in card sleeves with reproductions of the original Japanese obis. The promo boxed set that holds all the albums is much smaller than the 2003 box because these are in card sleeves, not digipaks. To get the box you had to buy all the albums and then collect all fourteen black triangular price tokens from the right-hand bottom corner of the sticker on each album.

All the individual remastered titles have been added to the appropriate album page in this section.

Thanks to Yoshihiko Satake and John Moore for information and to Hans Seegers for further information and scans. This is the only official Sony Music box, the two boxes shown below come from the Disc Union record store chain.

Each of the individual albums in this set is illustrated on the appropriate page of International Album Releases.

The Canadian and European 2CD sets come in a non-gatefold card sleeve with a pull-out card tray. The design is unusual in that the card tray can only be pulled part-way out to reveal the discs. (Stuart Sonshine informs me this is called a "sliderpack" and is used for all the North American "x2" releases.) The Canadian CDs themselves are unique in that they are orange instead of the original blue and green designs and both have the new catalogue number. The European CDs are the regular releases: Time Out Of Mind - Columbia 486936 2, "Love & Theft" - Columbia 512357 2.

The Australian 2CD set has the two CDs in regular jewel cases inside a card slipcase. The discs are also of a new unique white design with red and black text and there are minor changes to the front and rear inserts. Stuart Moore also has a promo copy with a "SAMPLE" sticker on the rear of the slipcase.

Thanks to Hans Seegers, Tom Willems, Jack Guerreiro, Stuart Moore and Éamonn Ó Catháin for information and scans.

This set in a card slipcase contains Bob's last three studio albums at the time of release, Time Out of Mind, "Love And Theft" and Modern Times.

Thanks to Jean-Pol Hiernaux for information and to Stuart Moore for scans of the Australian release, which is unusual in that while Time Out of Mind and Modern Times are the standard Australian releases, "Love And Theft" is the European release. Thanks to Jack Guerreiro for scans of the Canadian release.

"The Bob Dylan 60s Collection" - 10CD boxed set, Columbia/Sony Music 88697 51773 2 (NL), 20 Apr 2009:


Columbia/Sony Music 88697 51773 2 (NL) - box front scan by Tom Willems
This set in card sleeves was manufactured by Sony Music in Austria for the Dutch newspaper "De Volkskrant" to mark Bob's Apr 2009 shows in Holland. Because it includes the limited edition CD Live At The Gaslight 1962, it is also listed in 2009. Live At The Gaslight 1962 was originally released in 2005. The box also contains a 16-page booklet by Dutch author Martin Bril called "Een man uit de verte [A man from afar]". Sadly, Martin Bril died on 22 Apr 2009 from cancer. The rear of the box shows the ten albums included.
