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!

"Original Album Classics: Bob Dylan" - 3CD set in slipcase, Columbia/Legacy/Sony Music 88697742502 (Austria for Europe), 26 Jul 2010:


Columbia/Legacy/Sony Music 88697742502 (Austria for Europe) - front of slipcase (my copy)
This new set consists of three not as yet remastered albums: Empire Burlesque (1985), Down In The Groove (1988) and Under The Red Sky (1990). As the price per set is only £8.99 it's very unlikely these have been remastered now. Other artists in this series include Miles Davis, Charlie Mingus, Patti Smith and Jeff Buckley. The three albums are in card sleeves inside a CD-width slipcase. The individual albums are numbered 88697742502CD1, 88697742502CD2 and 88697742502CD3.

The picture on the front of the slipcase comes from 1986's Hard To Handle video of Bob live with Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, see VHS & DVDs 1980s.

Thanks to Steven Jump of Badlands for the information.

Front of five panel card sleeve, scan by Gerd Rundel

This 5CD set was given away with the Greek newspaper "Eleftherotypia [Free Press]" ("Free" as in uncensored, not free of charge like many UK papers paid for by advertising!). Each album is from a different decade: 1960s - Blonde On Blonde, 1970s - Blood On the Tracks, 1980s - Infidels, 1990s - Time Out of Mind, 2000s - Modern Times. Each CD came in a card sleeve and there was also a five panel card sleeve to hold the five CDs if you collected all of them. The card sleeves were printed by Digital Press Hellas.

Thanks to Hans Seegers and Gerd Rundel for information and scans. Thanks to Marianna Lemos for translating the title!

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. A set by Paul Simon is being released on 15 Oct 2013. This 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, 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.

Desire (1976)

Hard Rain (1976)*- thanks to Éamonn Ó Catháin for information that some copies of this CD have faults on Oh, Sister at 0:08 and 3:53 - check your copy! Latest news is that Sony Music are replacing affected copies.

Street-Legal (1978)* - thanks to Éamonn Ó Catháin for pointing out this is a remastered version of the original 1978 album, so Changing Of The Guards reverts to a shorter length of 6:41, instead of the extended version at 7:06 from the 1999 remixed release. It does however, have a final drum beat that was missing from the 1978 version (still on Bob Dylan's Greatest Hits Vol. 3, 1994, and even on the 2007 3CD set Dylan), which was timed at 6:36.

Bob Dylan At Budokan (Live, 1979) – (2 CDs)*

Slow Train Coming (1979)

Saved! (1980)*

Empire Burlesque (1985)*

Knocked Out Loaded (1986)* - thanks to Georg Thoma for reminding me that the version of Brownsville Girl on the 2007 3CD compilation Dylan is a different mix from that of the original 1986 album and that mix appears again on the 2010 US Columbia/Legacy compilation Playlist: The Very Best Of Bob Dylan '70s, see International Album Releases (Dylan-Only Compilations) 2010s. This CD has a remastered version of the original 1986 mix.

Things Have Changed - Wonder Boys soundtrack/The Essential Bob Dylan

 

** Dignity is the original out-take version from Oh Mercy that first appeared on the Touched By An Angel TV series soundtrack album (R-0273, see 1998 and Released Rarities), not the 1994 remix by Brendan O'Brien from Bob Dylan's Greatest Hits Vol. 3. R-0273 ceased to become a rarity in 2007 when it appeared on the 3CD set Dylan. Thanks to Jack Manuel for correcting this entry.

Columbia/Legacy/Sony Music 88691-92431-2 (USA) - top of sealed CD box with sticker (my copy)

The US copy shown above is a promo, with a white promo sticker with blue text on the shrink-wrap on the bottom of the box, which is plain red covered by a folded card wrapper. Thanks to Arie de Reus for information that Side Tracks will also be available as a separate 3LP vinyl set, see 2013 because it contains a rarity. Éamonn Ó Catháin adds that, although these albums are not listed as remastered, Time Out Of Mind sounds very different from the current standard CD release and Modern Times sounds closer to the vinyl mastering than the original CD. (Siamak Tazari ripped the wave files to compare them and agrees that Time Out of Mind is indeed very different from the original CD master, but says that Modern Times is identical to the original CD master - at least the one included on the original Deluxe Edition of Modern Times.)

Both Peter Coulthard and Éamonn Ó Catháin have found that on the remastered release of Self Portrait, CD4 of the Deluxe Edition of Another Self Portrait (1969-1971): The Bootleg Series Vol. 10, Aug 2013, there was a very annoying glitch which occurs between 47 and 48 seconds into Copper Kettle. This CD was replaced by Sony in mid Oct 2013. The CD of Self Portrait in The Complete Album Collection Vol. One appears to be the same as the replacement CD4.

The European album sleeves are made of thicker card than the US sleeves, but they are otherwise identical, so are not shown. All the double albums plus Self Portrait (a double album on release with a gatefold sleeve, but now a single CD) have folded card sleeves with pockets for the discs open at the inside centre. Full details of each card sleeve and CDs are shown in the individual album pages (there are no inner sleeves).

The Blu-Spec CD2 specification CDs come in card sleeves with printed inner sleeves and "SONY MUSIC" instead of "COLUMBIA" on the discs, which are numbered SICP 30471 to SICP 30481 (Bob Dylan's Greatest Hits, not included in the US and European sets, is included here as SICP 30479). Side Tracks, to be released at the same time, is SICP 30519-20. All the sleeves will have orange top obis similar to the 2004 Japanese release in card sleeves.
