Mr. Tambourine Man - 10" single-sided metal acetate, Warner Bros (no catalogue number) (USA), 1970s, surfaced Mar 2015:


Picture from eBay (R-1227)
This single-sided music publisher's acetate contains an edited version of Mr. Tambourine Man and was created by Warner Bros Music Corporation (who owned Witmark & Sons) in Los Angeles, CA, in the early to mid-1970s. It was offered for sale on eBay in Mar 2015. I've included this because it has been authenticated as genuine and the picture is a scan, not a digital photo of horrible quality as usually found on eBay!

R-1227 Mr. Tambourine Man - edited version (3:50) of Bringing It All Back Home album track, from Warner Bros music publisher's acetate, 1970s, surfaced 2015

Thanks to Gerd Rundel for finding this acetate on eBay and to Jeff Gold of Record Mecca for authenticating it.


Bob Dylan/The Band - "The Basement Tape" - mono vinyl LP releases, Other People's Music OPM 261-281 (Canada)/Columbia/Legacy 88875064261-281 (USA), 18 Apr 2015:

As part of Record Store Day on 18 Apr 2015 in the USA and UK (also Holland) there were vinyl releases of The Basement Tape signed by Garth Hudson, available in mono only. They reproduce the original 1968 Emidisc UK 14 track test pressing LP, reportedly the source of the songs made available to UK groups such as Manfred Mann (The Mighty Quinn), The Brian Auger Trinity/Julie Driscoll (This Wheel's On Fire), Fairport Convention (Million Dollar Bash), etc., see 1968. None of the tracks were thought to be rarities, but Peter Coulthard points out that at the start of This Wheel's on Fire Bob is heard to sing/mumble softly "If your mem'ry serves you well..."  This fragment of singing ahead of the first strummed note does not occur on the 6CD set The Bootleg Series Vol. 11 - The Basement Tapes Complete. so these albums have been added here as containing a rarity. For full details see The Bootleg Series Vol. 11 - The Basement Tapes Raw/Complete page of International Album Releases (Regular Dylan Albums).

R-1653 This Wheel's On Fire - unedited version with Bob intro
It is possible that this intro also occurs on the 1968 test pressing LP, confirmation required!

Other People's Music OPM 281 (Canada)/Columbia/Legacy 88875064261 (USA), 18 Apr 2015 (200gm pink vinyl edition):


Other People's Music OPM 281 (Canada)/ Columbia/Legacy 88875064281 (USA) - front with wraparound sleeve, photo by Steven Fant (200gm pink vinyl edition)
The pink vinyl release has a pink wraparound obi-style sleeve with the track list and other information inside a thin clear polythene sleeve. On the 180gm and 130gm versions below this wraparound sleeve is blue. The record has white "Emidisc" labels with a "stained" appearance reproducing one variant of the 1968 acetate, but with some song titles corrected. The copy shown is numbered #124, and is hand-numbered in black with "1,000" stamped in red.

It states on the labels that the album was released by Other People's Music Inc., Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Each version of the album also has a pink insert with a reproduction of the article by Jann Wenner in the US magazine "Rolling Stone", 22 Jun 1968, entitled "DYLAN'S BASEMENT TAPE SHOULD BE RELEASED". Now it has been, exactly as first released in 1968.

Bruce Mulle points out that the Garth Hudson signature on the pink vinyl edition is slightly raised, whereas the hand-stamped signatures on the black vinyl editions are smooth. Steven Fant confirms this and thinks that Garth signed the copies using a calligraphy pen with thick black ink.

R-1095-2 Rocks And Gravel [Solid Road] (Brownie McGhee-Leroy Carr)  - studio version (stereo) from the Columbia test pressing and promotional copies of The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan, 1963, recorded Columbia Recording Studios, New York, 1 Nov 1962 (CO 76986 take 1, R-0017, see 1963), overdubbed by Tom Wilson at Columbia Recording Studios, New York, 8 Dec 1964 (CO 84439 take 10) (2:27)
Thanks to Bob Stacy for his detailed analysis of this performance (
see VHS & DVD 2010s), which has led me to allocate it a new R-number!

David Goldsmith is of the opinion that the track has not been overdubbed, but it has been remixed from the version included on the withdrawn version of The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan (R-0017, see 1963). This film soundtrack album produced by T-Bone Burnett includes music from Seasons 1 and 2 of the series, R-1095 was broadcast in Episode 1 of Season 1. For the DVD/Blu-ray releases of Season 1, see VHS & DVD 2010s. Five songs of the fourteen are by Nashville-based Lera Lynn, who appears in the series as a singer in a dive bar frequented by the main characters. My copy was made in the EU, scans of the US release required. The front insert is an eight page stapled booklet. Thanks to Lars-Arne Klintworth for spotting that the booklet says this track was engineered by Ben Tanner at Sun Drop Sound Studios in Florence, AL.

Paul S. Levine has a US promo version that comes in a standard jewel case. The rear insert is white with just text, and the disc itself is a CD-R.
 

Harvest 2547432896 (USA) - 2LP set front picture from www.recordstoreday.com
The album was also released as a 2LP set, Harvest 2547432896, on Record Store Day, 27 Nov 2015. One sticker at front upper right corner reads "Featuring..." but does not mention Dylan or his song. A second sticker in the front lower right corner reads "Record Store Day".

R-1326 Visions Of Johanna – Take 6 (11/30/1965) Rehearsal (CD9, track 18)

Freeze Out, an early version of Visions Of Johanna, recorded at Columbia Studios, New York, 30 Nov/1 Dec 1965, surfaced in 1980 on unreleased Columbia acetates (R-0396, see 1980)
This is not the take which was released in Sep 2005 on The Bootleg Series Vol. 7: No Direction Home, but it is definitely one of the takes from the The Bootleg Series Vol. 12 - Bob Dylan 1965-1966 The Cutting Edge Collector's Edition, as yet I don't know which. If it's one of the complete takes on the 6CD set, R-0396 will cease to be a rarity.
