The Best Of Bob Dylan
(2005)

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.

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

Two out-takes have been officially released:

The Bootleg Series Vol. 8 - Tell Tale Signs (2008): Ain't Talkin' (alternate take); Someday Baby (alternate take)


Dylan (2007)

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!

Thanks to Ian Woodward for the information that the album cover photograph is by Ted Croner, taken in 1947 and entitled "Taxi, New York at Night". Thanks to Fred Muller for information that the 1995 Elektra album Penthouse by New Zealand/USA indie rock band Luna includes not only this photo on the rear of the front insert, but also two more photos from the same New York 1947 sequence by Ted Croner on the front of the front insert and the rear insert. Also shown is a photo of the Luna lineup in 2015.


"Taxi, New York at Night", Ted Croner, 1947

Tracklisting: Thunder On The Mountain; Spirit On The Water; Rollin' And Tumblin'; When The Deal Goes Down; Someday Baby; Workingman's Blues #2; Beyond The Horizon; Nettie Moore; The Levee's Gonna Break; Ain't Talkin'.

Bonus DVD: Blood In My Eyes (Promo Video, 1993), Love Sick (Live "Grammy®" Version, 1998, with gatecrasher "Soy Bomb" edited out); Things Have Changed ("Wonder Boys" Promo Video, 2000); Cold Irons Bound ("Masked And Anonymous" version, 2002). The Apple iTunes Online Music Store in the USA is offering a bonus of these four performances. In Europe only the Things Have Changed video was offered. The 1983 Jokerman video was offered for pre-sales in both the USA and Europe, but is no longer available.

It's worth mentioning that three songs are not actually Dylan originals, his copyright credits are claimed probably for revised lyrics/new arrangements. Rolling and Tumblin' was first recorded as "Roll And Tumble Blues" by Hambone Willie Newbern in 1929 and also as Rollin' And Tumblin' by McKinley Morganfield (Muddy Waters) in 1950. The Levee's Gonna Break was recorded in 1929 as "When The Levee Breaks" by Kansas Joe and Memphis Minnie, while Someday Baby was recorded in 1935 as "Someday Baby Blues" by Sleepy John Estes and also as "Worried Life Blues" by Big Maceo Merriweather. Thanks to Graeme Jennings and Jean-Pol Hiernaux for information.


New Lost City Ramblers, Smithsonian Folkways, USA, 1968
Although many people believe the album title was inspired by the 1936 Charlie Chaplin film, Rod MacBeath in "Looking Up Dylan's Sleeves Part 10" in "The Bridge" issue 55, Summer 2016, suggests that it may actually have been inspired by the 1968 Folkways album by the New Lost City Ramblers.
Charlie Chaplin, 1936

Photo by Hervé from France
This extremely unexpected item is a promo cassette from Sony Music Japan International Inc. It's dated "2006/8/30". Michio Kinoshita assures me that cassettes are still used for promotional purposes in Japan, although I previously thought they'd been obsolete there for a couple of decades! The cassette has a grey insert with text on both sides mostly in Japanese. The cassette is black with grey CBS Japan promo labels.

Thanks to Hervé from France for initial information and to Wil Gielen for further information and scans.

The European DVD has a green German age rating logo (12 upwards). Thanks to Hans Seegers for the scans of the US long box edition and a copy sold in France.

Thanks to Hans Seegers, Jean-Pol Hiernaux, Jack Guerreiro and the late David Plentus for information and scans.

Columbia 82876883062 (Australia) - front scan with sticker by Martin Barrack

Thanks to the late Martin Barrack and Bill Hester for scans of the Australian release, Columbia 82876883062 (the catalogue number on the spine of the book style packaging is Columbia "82876 88306 2" (with spaces). It appears that the packaging has been imported from the USA - it has the FBI anti-piracy logo, says the DVD is NTSC, and doesn't mention Australia. The wording on the yellow front sticker is slightly different from the US sticker. The CD and DVD are made in Australia and the CD has catalogue number Columbia 82876887602, while the DVD is correctly shown as PAL and has catalogue number Columbia 82876883062.

Thanks to Jean-Pol Hiernaux for finding a picture of the Japanese Limited Edition on eBay. It has a wraparound obi, a Japanese lyrics booklet and an insert in Japanese describing the DVD. I have since purchased a commercial copy, and Wil Gielen has provided scans of a promo copy with a yellow numbered promo sticker on the rear of the wraparound obi and "SAMPLE LOANED" in the clear centres of the CD and DVD. The obi price is ¥3,150 (¥3,000 + sales tax) and unusually there is no withdrawal date on the obi.

Because this Limited Edition contains rarities, it is also listed in 2006.

Columbia 82876 87606 2 (USA) - promo CD-R photo from eBay
Thanks to Gerd Rundel for finding this promo CD-R on eBay. It has the US FBI Anti-Piracy logo, is dated 11 Aug 2006 and was sourced from a master dated 12 Jul 2006. The CD-R comes in a red generic Columbia card sleeve, cut out at the front to reveal the CD design.

"Modern Times" - promo CD-R, Sony BMG (no catalogue number) (Colombia), Aug 2006(?):


CD-R found by Gerd Rundel
This "mega rare" promo CD-R purporting to be from Colombia is almost certainly a fake, so is listed in Questionable Recordings.

Modern Times is from 2006, yet this is dated 2002! Sony & BMG did not merge until 2004, two years after this date. ABKCO records are distributed by Universal, and Bob has never had links to that company.

Thanks to Gerd Rundel for finding this on eBay.

Columbia 82876 87606 2 (USA) - XM radio advertising flyer, scan by Jean-Pol Hiernaux

Servi Stevens has a copy of the US release without the FBI Anti-Piracy logo on the rear insert and CD - scans required.

Jean-Pol Hiernaux has a copy of the album purchased at "Best Buy" in the USA, where a 100-page booklet is being given away with the album (not the same as the PDF booklet with The Bob Dylan Collection from iTunes, see Online Performances (Other) ). The Best Buy booklet is CD-sized and includes the 50 official albums presented in reverse chronological order, with two pages per album showing the cover and tracklist. This copy also has an insert advertising Bob's "Theme Time" XM radio show, see 2006. Pachi Becerril has a promo copy with a sticker with text "FOR PROMOTIONAL USE ONLY NOT FOR SALE" on the front. Stuart Sonshine informs me this "Best Buy" release has the catalogue number 82876 89494 2 on the front sticker while the CD itself has the regular catalogue number 82876 87606 2. Moise Potié's copy again has the regular catalogue number on the CD but 82876 87686 2 on the spines (same as the Taiwanese Limited Edition 2 disc set release above).

Thanks to Jack Guerreiro for scans of the Canadian release. The front of the US release has a slight coloured tint to the photo, whereas the Canadian photo is true black and white. The rear of the Canadian release is missing the US FBI Anti-Piracy logo. Detailed differences on the CD itself are shown above.

Thanks to Tim Dunn and Stuart Sonshine for information about this album and to David Plentus, Jean-Pol Hiernaux and Jack Guerreiro for scans.

Dr. Hanns Peter Bushoff bought this copy in Munich, Germany, in Feb 2013 in a card sleeve, together with a copy of Time Out Of Mind in the same format. The CD was made in Austria. As the Time Out Of Mind release originally came in a DVD case, it's possible this album did too.

Thanks to Dr. Hanns Peter Bushoff for information and scans.

Sony BMG/Columbia 88697 01659 2 (Russia) - front with sticker, scan by Jens Winter

This is an official Russian release from Sony BMG/Columbia. The front of the jewel case has a Sony/BMG sticker plus some writing in Russian, saying "For distribution in Russia and CIS" (Commonwealth of Independent States - states of former Soviet Union).

There is a single-folded front insert with one picture on the inside only. The text on the reverse of the rear insert showing through to the front says "Special Russian Version" in English. The rear insert has an additional "Rovesnik" logo (this is the title of a Russian music and youth magazine). The CD says "Made in Russia" in Russian.

Thanks to Jens Winter for information and scans.

This massive set is the latest in a series of "Complete Columbia Album Collections" featuring artists such as Miles Davis, Charlie Mingus, Duke Ellington, Dave Brubeck and even Blue Oyster Cult. The CD version of the set includes 41 Dylan albums in card sleeves, 14 of which have been remastered for this project, plus a 2CD set of previously released non-album tracks entitled Side Tracks. The albums exclude all compilations and The Bootleg Series sets, but do include the deleted 1973 Dylan album, also see 1973, and the extra 2CD set Side Tracks includes one side of the 1971 single George Jackson (Acoustic version), R-0085, see 1971. The set is therefore listed in 2013. The set also includes a hard cover book with extensive new liner notes and previously unseen photos.

All the CDs come in card sleeves. The European sleeves are made of thicker card than the US sleeves, but they are otherwise identical, so are not shown. The catalogue number on the sleeve is "88691924312JK38" plus "DISC 42". The CDs are different in detail, the US Modern Times CD has catalogue number "88691924312D42", whereas the European CD has catalogue number "88691924312-42". The European CD was made in the EU (probably Austria). The US and European copyright details are printed at the bottom of the Bob Dylan CDs, and round the circumference for The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan onwards, so I haven't shown them for these CDs.

For more details of the set, see International Album Releases (Multi-Packs) 2010s.
