The Bootleg Series Vol. 7 - No Direction Home: The Soundtrack


These pictures were taken by Barry Feinstein at the Aust Ferry across the River Severn from England towards Wales in May 1966. In the background is the Severn Bridge that eventually replaced the ferry. The first photo (found on www.amazon.com before the release) is an alternate take, but it does have the "new" car number plate of "1235 RD". The second photo is the final version. The third photo, advertising the 2DVD set, is the same take as the final version, but it still has the original number plate "of "540 CYN"!
Two pictures I took of the Aust Ferry in 1964 are shown out of interest below.

The Bootleg Series Vol. 6 - Live 1964 (2004)

This page is part of a list of original releases by release date of international commercially-released regular stereo Dylan albums. 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. Promo releases of regular albums are now listed here and no longer in the former yearly Promo sections.

This release on 30 Aug 2005 is associated with the documentary film of the same name directed by Martin Scorsese and which was shown both in the USA and on BBC2 in the UK on 26-27 Sep 2005.

For releases of this album in Columbia multi-packs, see International Album Releases (Regular) - Multi-Packs.

Final front design- the words "A MARTIN SCORSESE PICTURE" have been added
US release (2CD set), Columbia/Legacy C2K 93937, 30 Aug 2005.

Thanks to Ian Woodward for noticing that the final design has been changed in a couple of ways from that used in original promo pictures. The most obvious one is that the words "A MARTIN SCORSESE PICTURE" have been added in blue under the album title. Less obvious is that the car number plate has been changed from "540 CYN" in the original photo to "1235 RD" (a reference to Rainy Day Women #12 & 35)! The full original photograph (of which this is a crop) can be found in the book "Early Dylan" by Barry Feinstein, Daniel Kramer and Jim Marshall (Little, Brown & Co, 1999).

Slides taken by me using 127 transparency film of the Aust Ferry and the Severn Bridge (then without the roadway) in Aug 1964. The colours on the left-hand picture are somewhat faded, which shows I would have been better using black and white film! Thanks to Hamish Johnson for reminding me that although the Aust Ferry and the subsequent Severn Bridge can be said to "link England to Wales", both ends are actually in Gloucestershire!

Thanks to Fred Muller for pointing out that Richard Manuel is not credited in the booklet for playing piano on Like A Rolling Stone - he is credited in the booklet with The Bootleg Series Vol. 4: Live 1966.

Exciting news is that the documentary film and DVD contain previously unsuspected live footage of the Manchester Free Trade Hall show, including the "Judas!" shout!

This release means four Rarities are removed from the list:

BDC71 Dink's Song (traditional) - from the "Minnesota Hotel Tape", Minneapolis, MN, 22 Dec 1961, from bobdylan.com in Sep 2001, see Online Performances). An excerpt of this song was included in the Highway 61 Interactive CD-ROM, 1995

R-0289 Don't Think Twice, It's All Right - Witmark demo version from Columbia US promo mono 12" LP, different from the regular Freewheelin' version, 1963

R-0373 When The Ship Comes In - live, Carnegie Hall, New York, 26 Oct 1963, from the unreleased 1964 Columbia album Bob Dylan In Concert, see 1964

R-0300 Maggie's Farm - recorded live with the Paul Butterfield Blues Band at the Newport Folk Festival, 25 Jul 1965, from Murray Lerner's film Festival, 1967 (see VHS & DVD 1960s), also available on a 1991 Italian CD Bob Dylan 1 accompanying an issue of Il Dizionario del Rock (The Dictionary of Rock) - a series of magazines in the early 1990s, see Questionable Releases

(Two songs from the 1965 Newport Folk Festival appear on the 208 track download set 50th Anniversary Collection 1965, Columbia/Legacy (USA), 4 Dec 2015, see 2015:

R-1590 Tombstone Blues, Contemporary Songs Workshop, Newport Folk Festival, Freebody Park, Newport, Rhode Island, 24 Jul 1965

R-1591 It Takes A Lot To Laugh, It Takes A Train To Cry, Newport Folk Festival, Freebody Park, Newport, Rhode Island, 25 Jul 1965

I Was Young When I Left Home (traditional) from the "Minnesota Hotel Tape", Minneapolis, MN, 22 Dec 1961, was first officially released on a bonus disc with the limited edition of "Love And Theft", Sep 2001, see 2001 and 2002. It is released here with a spoken intro, so the version without the intro remains a rarity as R-0514.

The take of Sally Gal is new - I previously had this listed as R-0580, unreleased Freewheelin' out-take from a 1962 Columbia acetate that surfaced in May 1982. Bob Stacy informs me that this version is in fact new, and does not match the two circulating Freewheelin' out-take versions! This newly released performance is take 1, whereas the two previously circulating performances were take 3 (R-0580) and take 4. These have now been released, along with takes 2 and 5, on the very limited Sony Music Europe 4CD set The 50th Anniversary Collection, Dec 2012.

The take of Phantom Engineer is also new - I previously had this listed as R-0394, an early version of this song, recorded at Columbia Studios, New York, 15 June 1965, surfaced in 1980 on unreleased Columbia acetates, see 1980. I had R-0394 listed as an alternate take to the one released on The Bootleg Series Vols.1-3, but Bob Stacy now tells me that they are the same. A definite alternate take is now released on The Bootleg Series Vol. 7: No Direction Home! and R-0394 has been removed from the Rarities list.


The Time Has Come by The Chambers Brothers (Columbia, 1967)
Tombstone Blues is also new, with a background vocal on the choruses which may be the Chambers Brothers (a gospel/soul group with several 1960s hits). A take with the Chambers Brothers on background vocals does circulate, but they're more prominent than here. (That take is to be released on a new Mike Bloomfield Columbia US box set, Bloomfield: From His Head To His Heart To His Hands - A Retrospective, 4 Feb 2014, see 2014.) Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues is also new, as is Highway 61 Revisited. Of the Blonde On Blonde out-takes, Leopard-Skin Pill-Box Hat and Stuck Inside Of Mobile are new. Visions Of Johanna is also a new take, previously unknown to collectors, not the same as the circulating "fast" version, although it does contain the line "he examines the nightingale's code".
Bloomfield: From His Head To His Heart To His Hands - A Retrospective, Mike Bloomfield boxed set (Columbia, 2014)

The studio out-take versions of It's All Over Now, Baby Blue; She Belongs To Me and Desolation Row (the "boiled guts of birds" version), already circulate, but of course appear here in much better quality. It's All Over Now Baby, Blue is dated wrongly as 16 Jan 1965, and almost certainly comes from 13 Jan 1965. The date of 16 Jan 1965 may have been when selected takes were extracted to a compilation reel for consideration for the album.

Thanks to Éamonn Ó Catháin for the information that the whole album is available for download from iTunes.

Out-takes from this album have been officially released as follows:

The front of the box has a wider crop of the original photograph than the CD set and the text "Deluxe LP Edition" below the title. The four records are housed in two gatefold sleeves, one of which is an alternate take of the cover photo of Bringing It All Back Home and the other of which is an alternate take of the cover photo of Blonde On Blonde. The booklet uses many wider crops of the photos from the CD booklet rather than just enlargements. There is also a release Classic Records/Columbia C2K-93937-1 (RW) in regular weight vinyl.

Thanks to Robert Kornovich and Gerd Rundel for further information and pictures.

The 2CD set comes in a slipcase with a 60-page bound booklet with previously unpublished photographs and essays by Andrew Loog Oldham (former manager of the Rolling Stones) and Al Kooper, plus performance notes by Eddie Gorodetsky.

Thanks to Harald Sigvartsen for pointing out that the picture on page 46 of the booklet is the one used for the front of The Bootleg Series Vol. 12 - Bob Dylan 1965-1966 The Cutting Edge in Nov 2015.

Columbia/Legacy 520358 2 (Europe):


Columbia/Legacy 520358 2 (Europe) - slipcase front without sticker (my copy)

The European release is made in Austria and has a much thinner 60-page booklet. Consequently the slipcase is also much thinner, without the top and bottom cut-outs of the US slipcase - it also does not have an information sticker. Other packaging differences are shown below - the Austrian CDs have writing all round their circumferences and don't have the US FBI Anti-Piracy Warning.

Thanks to Éamonn Ó Catháin for the information that this release features CD-TEXT.
