Bob Dylan In Concert: Brandeis University 1963 (2010)

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.


The Bootleg Series Vol. 10 - Another Self Portrait (1969-1971) (2013)

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!

Revised 17 January, 2017.


Release date of limited CD edition: 11 Sep 2012 (USA), 7 Sep 2012 (Europe/Australia/New Zealand), 26 Sep 2012 (Japan).
This edition does not contain any more music, but has a slipcase including a booklet of Dylan magazine covers from round the world.

Release date of regular CD edition: 11 Sep 2012 (USA), 7 Sep 2012 (Europe/Australia/New Zealand), 26 Sep 2012 (Japan).

Release date of vinyl 2LP edition: 11 Sep 2012 (USA), 7 Sep 2012 (Europe).

The album artwork was again designed by Japanese-American art director and graphic artist Coco Shinomiya, who also designed the artwork for Together Through Life and Christmas In The Heart. She has an impressive portfolio of albums by many prestigious artists. The cover photo by Alexander Längauer reproduced here courtesy of www.123rf.com is of one of the supporting statues of the fountain of Pallas Athene (1893-1902) outside the Austrian Parliament in Vienna, the four figures representing the four principal rivers of Austria. She represents the Vltava (Moldau) River which flows through the modern Czech Republic including Prague (then part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire) and was sculpted by Carl Kundmann (1838-1919). An early report that the statue is "The Ecstasy of St. Theresa" by Gian Lorenzo Bernini from the Cornaro Chapel, Santa Maria della Vittoria, Rome, proved to be wrong. The rear insert photo is by William Claxton, the photo on the rear of the front insert by John Shearer (with a border from a photo by Albert Watson), and the band photo in the centre of the front insert is again by John Shearer.

The album is 68 mins and contains ten songs:

  1. Duquesne Whistle
  2. Soon After Midnight
  3. Narrow Way
  4. Long and Wasted Years
  5. Pay In Blood
    The chorus of this reportedly standout track includes the line "I'll pay in blood, but not my own."
  6. Scarlet Town
    Scarlet Town is the fictitious town mentioned in the lyrics of the traditional song Barbara Allen recorded by Bob at the Gaslight Café, New York, Oct 1962, from the Starbucks limited edition live CD
    Live At The Gaslight 1962, see 2005. Scarlet Town is also a song written and recorded by Gillian Welch on her 2011 Acony Records US acoustic album The Harrow And The Harvest.
  7. Early Roman Kings
    The first single, to be available for download from 7 Aug 2012
  8. Tin Angel
    The Tin Angel was a nightclub in San Francisco, CA, an acoustic club/café in Philadelphia, PA, and also the name of a 1954 Folkways album by Odetta and Larry Mohr. Tin Angel is also a song by Joni Mitchell from her album Clouds.
  9. Tempest
    The 14 minute song about "The Titanic", which refers several times to James Cameron's 1997 film "Titanic"
  10. Roll On John
    The song about John Lennon including quotes from Beatles songs. Roll On John is also the name of a traditional song recorded by Bob in 1962 during an interview with Cynthia Gooding for the "Folksinger's Choice" WBAI radio programme, New York City, recorded 13 Jan 1962, broadcast 11 Mar 1962. It was officially released on There Is No Eye: Music For Photographs (Smithsonian Folkways 40091, USA, Nov 2001), a compilation CD accompanying the book "There Is No Eye" (quote from the Highway 61 Revisited sleeve notes) by John Cohen, see 2001.

Thanks to Tim Dunn for news that the Tempest copyrights appeared online in Dec 2012; alas, no extra songs!

The two discs come in plain white card sleeves with a central front sticker on each. They were pressed in Haarlem, Holland, by Record Industry for Furnace Mfg, USA.

"Tempest" - stereo 180gm vinyl 2LP release, Columbia/Sony Music 88725 45760 1 (Germany for Europe), 7 Sep 2012:


Columbia/Sony Music 88725 45760 1 (Germany for Europe) - front with sticker, scan by Gerd Rundel

The European release was made in Germany by Optimal Media, not Holland as originally reported (although Arie de Reus says the discs themselves were also pressed in Haarlem, Holland, by Record Industry). Additionally there is a flyer inside – on the front is the cover title photo and on the rear is the same picture as for the front of the inner sleeve of Record 2. The copy shown has handwritten matrix numbers: Side 1: AL 88725-457601, Side 2: BL 88725 457601, Side 3: CL 88725 457601, Side 4: DL 88725 457601, plus “STERLING” stamped on each side. Dr Walter Roedl's copy has matrix numbers: Side 1 - AL 88725-457601 C545760 RJ (handwritten) STERLING (stamped) 3C 83811-01 A1(handwritten), Side 2 - BL 88725-457601 C545760 RJ (handwritten) STERLING (stamped) 3C 83811-01 B1 (handwritten), Side 3 - CL 88725 457601 C546760 RJ (handwritten) STERLING (stamped) 3C 83811-02 C1 (handwritten), Side 4 - DL 88725 457601 C545760 DL RJ (handwritten) STERLING (stamped) 3C 83811-02 D1 (handwritten).

The CD has a different catalogue number from the CDs contained in the Standard and Limited CD Editions. This is because it was also manufactured by Optimal Media. The CDs in the CD packages below were manufactured in Germany by Sonopress.

Thanks to Dr. Hanns Peter Bushoff, Gerd Rundel, Dr. Walter Roedl and Derek Barker for information and scans.

Limited Edition CD Releases


"Tempest" - limited edition CD releases, Columbia 88725464142 (USA/Canada), 11 Sep 2012:


Columbia/Sony Music 88725464142 (USA) - front of slipcase with sticker, scan by Keith Schweiger (limited edition)
The limited edition comes in a card slipcase with a booklet containing pictures of magazine covers featuring Bob from all around the world. The CD in the limited edition is exactly the same as the standard CD, with the same catalogue number.

Thanks to Keith Schweiger and Hank Wellman for scans of the US limited deluxe edition. Thanks to Jens Winter for scans of the Canadian limited deluxe edition, which has a special limited edition CD made in Canada. The slipcase has a Canadian front sticker in English and French, but has the US copyright information on the rear, not the Canadian information as on the CD's rear insert or the CD itself.

"Tempest" - limited edition CD releases, Columbia/Sony Music 88725464142 (Europe/Australia/New Zealand), 7 Sep 2012:


Columbia/Sony Music 88725464142 (Europe) - front of slipcase with sticker, scan by Gerd Rundel (limited edition)

The European CDs contained in the Standard and Limited CD Editions were manufactured in Germany by Sonopress, unlike the CD contained in the Vinyl 2LP set, which was manufactured in Germany by Optimal Media.

In Europe the catalogue number on the rear insert of the Limited Edition is the same as on the rear of the slipcase, but the CD itself is the one from the standard edition, so they produced a different rear insert for the Limited Edition, but not a different CD. To make things more confusing the catalogue number in the barcode of the slipcase sold in Germany (as well as Switzerland and Austria) does not match any of the other catalogue numbers. Thanks to Derek Barker for spotting that the different German barcode is actually on a sticker, and if you peel off the sticker, the rear of the slipcase is the same as my copy bought in the UK. In the UK the complete standard CD package with inserts and CD were used in the Limited Edition!

Thanks to Derek Barker for information. Thanks to Gerd Rundel and Wil Gielen for the European and Japanese catalogue numbers and to Gerd Rundel and Jens Winter for the scans.

The CD was made in the EU and has catalogue number 8872554760-2. The slipcase rear and spine have 88725464142 printed but the rear is stickered with 887254654322. The T-shirt was in a plastic bag and contained with the Deluxe Limited Edition in an outer plastic bag and stickered with 88725477342 and the barcode 8 8725477342 9.

Book Union (a chain of stores in Japan) had a free "gift" item if you bought something in their book shop. It's a 13.5 cm x 4.5 cm (approx. 5.5" x 2") Bob Dylan bookmark made from glossy thick card. The two pictures on the rear of the bookmark are: "Record Collectors' Magazine", issue for Oct 2012 with a Tempest article inside; the Japanese Tempest limited edition album (Sony Music SICP 3663). The bookmark was released separately from the CDs, and no Dylan purchase was required.

"Tempest" - promo CD-R releases, Columbia 88725457602 (USA), Aug 2012:


Columbia 88725457602 (USA) - front in Columbia card sleeve, scan by Gerd Rundel ("Tempted")

Both these copies come in a generic red and white Columbia card sleeve with a cut-out front, The promo sticker on the rear of the first copy has been stuck on upside-down! The CD-Rs have a personalised number and the name of the recipient to the right of the centre hole, which has been obscured in the pictures.

The song title Tempest (track 9) is wrongly named “Tempted” on the promo sticker and the CD-R of the first copy. Gerd now has a copy where the title has been corrected to Tempest.

Thanks to Gerd Rundel for information and pictures.


"Tempest" - standard CD releases, Columbia 88725457602 (USA/Canada), 11 Sep 2012:
T
he only difference between the standard edition album and the album contained in the limited edition is that the front of the standard edition jewel case has a sticker that differs from the sticker on the front of the slipcase of the limited edition. The jewel case of the limited edition has no sticker as it's inside the slipcase.


Columbia/Sony Music 88725457602 (USA) - front with sticker, scan by Keith Schweiger (standard edition)

In the USA the standard CD complete with cover and jewel case was used for the Deluxe Edition, so the catalogue number. for the Deluxe Edition is on the slipcase only.

The copy of the US standard edition bought at Starbucks has a different transparent front sticker with white text and comes in a folded digipak instead of a jewel case. It has its own unique catalogue number on the digipak: 88725464152, but the CD itself is the same as in the standard edition (catalogue number 88725457602). The copy of the US standard edition bought at a record store has a regular sticker but the security seal has the text "PACKAGED IN USA/DISC(S) MADE IN MEXICO"!

Thanks to Keith Schweiger, Stuart Moore, Bill Hester, Jens Winter and Hank Wellman for information and scans.

Columbia/Sony Music 88725457602 (Canada) - front with sticker, scan by Jens Winter (standard edition)

In Canada both the CD and rear cover of the Deluxe Edition have their own catalogue number which is the same as the catalogue number on the slipcase - so they produced a different CD and rear insert for the Deluxe Edition. The rear insert of the Deluxe Edition does not contain a barcode. The Canadian standard edition has catalogue number 88725457602 and a unique bilingual sticker. The CD and rear insert both mention "Distributed by Sony Music Entertainment Canada". As mentioned, this is not the same CD provided with the Deluxe Edition.

"Tempest" - standard CD release, Columbia/Sony Music 88725457602 (Europe), 7 Sep 2012:
In the UK, as in the USA,
the only difference between the Standard Edition album and the album contained in the Limited Edition is that the front of the standard edition jewel case has a sticker that differs from the sticker on the front of the slipcase of the limited edition. The UK Limited Edition contains the Standard Edition album, but in Europe the Limited Edition has a different rear insert. The European CDs contained in the Standard and Limited CD Editions were manufactured in Germany by Sonopress, unlike the CD contained in the Vinyl 2LP set, which was manufactured in Germany by Optimal Media.

For scans of the European front insert and CD, see above. Thanks to David McBride for photos of a copy with a promo sticker. Jens Winter has a copy of the Standard Edition sold in Germany and says: "To my surprise it doesn't show the catalogue number on the rear insert I expected (88725457602), but the same as the German Deluxe edition again (88725465412 ) instead. As with the US/UK editions the only difference between the Standard and Deluxe Edition is the sticker on the jewel case. This sticker (as well as the CD) bears the 88725457602 number by the way. So my guess is in those regions where they sold the Deluxe Edition with the unique rear cover (Germany/Austria/Switzerland), they used the same CD package also for the Standard edition. We not only have two different Deluxe versions in UK and Germany, but also two different Standard versions!"

"Tempest" - standard CD release, Sony Music SICP-3664 (Japan), 26 Sep 2012:


Sony Music SICP-3664 (Japan) - front of slipcase with obi and sticker, scan by Wil Gielen

Like the Japanese limited edition above, this release has a wraparound obi with release date "12-9-26" (26 Sep 2012), withdrawal date "13-3-25" (25 Mar 2013) and USA release date "12-9-11" (11 Sep 2012). The obi price is now ¥2,520 (¥2,400 plus sales tax) - the limited edition price was ¥2,800 (¥2,667 plus sales tax). The copy shown is still sealed. Translation of the front sticker, the same as on the limited edition: "To mark the 50th anniversary of his debut! Official goods present prize draw! Bob Dylan signature harmonica (30 winners). Details and how to apply are in the homepage link. Closing date for entries 30th November 2012. Only the winners will be notified". As well as the standard folded front insert, the album contains an additional 34-page booklet with text in Japanese; lyrics to all Tempest songs (in Japanese only); plus a complete Bob Dylan discography, where the studio albums only are numbered (other album have different codes), so Tempest is #35 (this site numbers it as #57).

Thanks to Wil Gielen and 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 "88691924312JK41" plus "DISC 45". The CDs are different in detail, the US Tempest CD has catalogue number "88691924312D45", whereas the European CD has catalogue number "88691924312-45". The European CD was made in the EU (probably Austria).
