This is a separate multi-year list by release date of commercially-released Various Artist stereo compilation albums released in 2002 that have been referred to me but do not qualify for my Searching For A Gem list because they contain only Bob Dylan performances which are available on officially released Dylan albums. 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-only Various Artist compilation albums with Dylan tracks are now included in this list. Other International Albums and Compilations are now here:

Grammys2002.jpg (37828 bytes)
UTV Records 504 785-2 (USA) - scan by Kenneth Robson
Bob's contribution is Honest With Me from "Love And Theft". This is just the regular album track - not an exclusive Grammy rehearsal performance as wrongly reported in the Dylan fanzine "Series Of Dreams", issue 90. Not only was the album released before the Grammy rehearsals took place, but also Bob rehearsed only Cry A While, the song he performed live on the show.

For a US Columbia promo CD single with a radio edit of Honest With Me, released to coincide with the Grammy Awards, see 2002.

This compilation double CD set has exactly the same tracks as the Australian release above and again includes Mr. Tambourine Man from Bringing It All Back Home (again track 1 on CD2). It even has the same rear notes in English. It comes in a 2CD slimline jewel case inside a slipcase and has a multiple folded front insert. It was made in Spain by Warner and DRO (Discos Radioactivos Organizados) and sponsored by Antena 3, a Spanish TV channel. It has the bizarre title "100% Classic Pop", but from the artists list (Bob Dylan, Jackson Browne, Paul Simon, Tracey Chapman...) the subtitle "Simply The Best Songwriters" (same as the Australian release), printed on the reverse of the rear insert and visible through the transparent jewel case, is more appropriate.

Thanks to Manuel García Jara for information and scans.

Some sources say this set was released after the famous issue of Rolling Stone with the "500 Best Songs Of All Time" (Dec 2005, USA; Jan 2006, Spain, see attached front scan) because both items, the magazine and this set, have a similar cover. However, this set was actually released some years before.

Blood On The Tracks was one of three Dylan albums that were remastered in 1997 but which have never actually been released in the remastered format. This track appeared to be from that master. It has now been superseded by the remastered hybrid SA-CD release of Blood On The Tracks. Meet Me In The Morning from Blood On The Tracks also appears in the film, but is not on the soundtrack album.

The Japanese promo CD shown, Epic EDCI 80088, comes without inserts. The commercial release is Epic EICP 216.

Bob is pictured on the cover, and his contribution is Lay, Lady, Lay from Nashville Skyline on CD2. Capital Gold is a London-based "oldies" radio station, and there are two other sets in this series called Seventies Legends and Eighties Legends, neither of which include Bob.

The album title is in silver, and sadly here just looks dark grey!

On the rear of the inside booklet there is a photo where you can see Pierre Lescure on the left. He was the producer of the show and became later the manager of the French private channel "canal +". Then he became number two of the sadly famous company "Vivendi" which bought Universal. The man with the black glasses is Philippe Manoeuvre, he is the chief editor of "Rock & Folk" a French magazine. On the second CD you can find Jokerman from Bob. I think it's the regular version but remastered."

This boxed set was released to coincide with the PBS TV series "Freedom: A History of US". The Columbia/Legacy Records press release of 22 Nov 2002 says:

"Freedom: Songs From The Heart of America is a new 3CD box set which will be the musical companion to the upcoming TV series "Freedom: A History of US," which premieres on PBS in January 2003. Columbia Records/Legacy Recordings have mined their rich archive of recordings to prepare a unique, collectible box set that features music which addresses the struggle for freedom in America. The 3CD, 67-song package arrives in stores December 10, 2002.

Freedom: Songs From The Heart of America will feature a combination of songs that appear in the "Freedom" PBS series plus additional songs inspired by the narrative of the series. Included are tracks covering virtually every important historical event in American history -- from the Revolutionary War through the challenges we face in the wake of the terrorist attacks of September 11th. The selection of blues, folk, country, jazz, folk, gospel and rock songs are performed by such artists as Louis Armstrong, Leonard Bernstein, Johnny Cash, Bob Dylan, Woody & Arlo Guthrie, Billie Holiday, Mahalia Jackson, Lead Belly, Keb' Mo', Willie Nelson, Pete Seeger, Simon & Garfunkel, Sly & The Family Stone, Nina Simone, Kate Smith, Bruce Springsteen, and many more. In addition, the package will include a booklet featuring rare photos and historical essays."

Bob's contribution is The Times They Are A-Changin'. There is also a live cover of Chimes Of Freedom by Bruce Springsteen. A single CD from the set was later released which also contained both songs.
