This page contains items that aren't eligible for the main Searching For A Gem or International Stereo Releases lists because Bob does not personally perform on them, but are nevertheless of interest to Dylan collectors. There's no specific qualification for inclusion other than I have the item or it's been notified to me by a contributor as having a noteworthy Dylan connection. All candidates for inclusion will be assessed on their merits! I have included a list of covers of Blowin' In The Wind, but this is not intended to be a comprehensive section on Dylan Covers. The late Dave Plentus' excellent Dylan Cover Albums site is now kept alive on Expecting Rain by Karl-Erik Anderson here .


All Honourable Mentions Video items are now here.

All Honourable Mentions items with covers of Blowin' In The Wind are now here.

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!

Carolyn Hester - "Carolyn Hester" - mono vinyl album, Tradition Records TLP-1043 (USA), 1961:


Tradition Records TLP-1043 (USA mono) - front (my copy, no Dylan)

Thanks to Tracy Zank for pointing out that the Carolyn Hester album listed in 1962 is in fact Carolyn's second self-titled album - the first (shown above) was released in 1961 on Tradition Records (TLP-1043) with a completely different tracklist including House Of The Risin' Sun and The Water Is Wide  - Bob did not play on this album. Thanks to Tim Dunn for the album! The sleeve notes are by "Stacey Williams" (Robert Shelton), who wrote the sleeve notes for Bob's first album under the same pseudonym. This 1961 album was released on CD with three bonus tracks as The Tradition Album by Road Goes On Forever on 1 Mar 2001, and then again with the original artwork as The Tradition Album by Hot Records on 29 Sep 2006, this time with just the original 13 tracks, but remastered.

Coral CRL 57143 (USA mono) - front picture from collectorsfrenzy.com (1957, no Dylan)

Thanks to Ian Woodward for pointing out that Carolyn's first album, also in mono only, was in fact Scarlet Ribbons from 1957 on the Coral label, produced in her home state of Texas by Norman Petty, producer of Buddy Holly and the Crickets. These two albums are together on CD1 of a 2CD set, Carolyn Hester Introduces Bob Dylan, from Jasmine Music in the UK, released on 12 Apr 2013. CD2 contains Carolyn's 1962 album plus Bob's first album and his first single (in mono). This release is presumably legal in the EU because of copyright expiry, but as it's not an official Columbia release, it is listed in Questionable Releases.


Jasmine Records JASCD 259 (UK mono/stereo, 2013) - front (my copy, includes Dylan)

Carolyn Hester also recorded Bob's non-album song Ye Playboys and Playgirls (R-0020, see 1964) for Dot Records in Aug/Sep 1965 on her live album Carolyn Hester At Town Hall Two (Dot DLP 25649 - stereo, Dot DLP 3649 - mono).

Master Classics Records (Europe, 2013) - MP3 version with 24 tracks from both Town Hall LPs

Thanks to Tim Dunn for information that this version has a new final verse: "Ringo just got married, now he'll never marry me; Never marry me, never marry me; Ringer just got married, now he'll never marry me, Not now and no other time". The liner notes by Carolyn include the credit: "For Bobby in hopes he won't object to the very last verse (it's about a friend of his, anyway!)." (Actually, most of her lyrics do not match the Dylan version in "Lyrics 1962-2001".) This album was also released in the UK as Dot Records DLP 3638 (mono), thanks to Ronald Born for scans of a UK test pressing in a plain white sleeve with details on a sheet pasted on the front. The song was also released as a single in the UK and on a French EP taken from the album.

Barclay 70.618 M (France) - 7" EP front scan by Ronald Born (1964)
Hugues Aufray was probably the first artist to translate Bob Dylan songs into a language other than English. In February 1964 an EP (Barclay, 70.618) included "N'y Pense Plus, Tout Est Bien" [Don't Think Twice, It's All Right]. There was also a single coupling this track with "Quatre Vents" [Four Strong Winds].

Johnny Cash - "It Ain't Me, Babe" - promo 7" mono single: Columbia 4-43145 (USA), Dec 1964:


Columbia 4-43145 (USA) - front scan by Manuel García Jara (rear is plain white)
A rumoured alternate version of It Ain't Me, Babe is listed in 1964, but the existence of this Dylan item is disputed, and I have as yet seen no evidence of it. Manuel García Jara thinks that this is a mistake, and actually refers to the Johnny Cash cover of It Ain't Me, Babe, originally released by Columbia in USA in Sep 1964 with Time And Time Again as the B-side. There was a promotional release with red vinyl and red text and a commercial release with regular orange labels - these two singles had generic Columbia sleeves.

However, in Dec 1964 a new version on red vinyl with black text was released with Cash’s Dylan cover on both sides; this new single usually has a generic sleeve but only a limited quantity of copies have the white Columbia sleeve shown with promo text explaining the reason why this single was released again.

Trini Lopez - "The Folk Album" - 12" mono/stereo vinyl LP, Reprise RS 6147 (USA, stereo)/Reprise R-6147 (USA, mono), 1965:


Reprise RS 6147 (USA, stereo) - front scan by Manuel García Jara
This 1965 album by Trini Lopez includes covers of two Dylan songs - Blowin' In The Wind and Don't Think Twice, It's All Right. It was the second in a quartet of similarly-titled Trini Lopez albums, the others being The Latin Album (RS 6125), The Love Album (RS 6165) and The Rhythm & Blues Album (RS 6171). The stereo "Little LP" on the right was intended for jukeboxes and has six songs from the album. Don't Think Twice, It's All Right is track 2 on the B-side, but Blowin' In The Wind is missing. For 7" stereo/mono singles and EPs with covers of Blowin' In The Wind see here.

The album was released on CD by the Wounded Bird US reissue label in 2007. It is now out of print, although it can be downloaded from amazon.com.

Billy Lee Riley was a US rockabilly singer who had important hits on Sun Records in the 1950s such as Red Hot. In 1966 he recorded the album Funk Harmonica (GNP Crescendo 2020) including covers of recent hits, mostly "folk-rock" tracks, including Dylan covers Blowin' In The Wind, Mr. Tambourine Man and Like A Rolling Stone. In Mexico two rare EPs from the album were released with an important change in the title, Folk-Rock Harmonica instead of Funk Harmonica. The first EP is the rarer, and includes his covers of Like A Rolling Stone (track 1 on the A-side) translated as "Como piedra que rueda" (On CBS releases it was translated as "Como una piedra que rueda") and Mr. Tambourine Man (track 1 on the B-side) translated as "El hombre de la pandereta" (the usual translation in Latin American countries is "Mr. Tamborín"). The second EP includes Blowin' In The Wind (track 1 on the B-side) with its usual Spanish translation of "La Respuesta Está En El Viento [The Answer Is In The Wind]", so is also listed here. Track 1 on the A-side of Vol. II is "La Casa Del Sol Nasciente [House Of The Risin' Sun]", recorded by Bob on his first album. The sleeves are the usual Mexican unfolded inserts. The rear sleeve of each EP has information about the different types of harmonica used on each track!

This 1966 album by jazz percussionist Gary Burton is noteworthy because it was recorded in Nashville, TN, with country musicians such as Chet Atkins and three musicians who played in Nashville earlier in 1966 at the Blonde On Blonde sessions: Charlie McCoy, Henry Strzelecki and Kenny Buttrey. The album contains two instrumental covers of Blonde On Blonde songs - Just Like A Woman and I Want You. Charlie McCoy and Kenny Buttrey later joined the Nashville-based band Area Code 615 with other musicians who'd played on Blonde On Blonde and released more Dylan covers.

Atlantic/Discos Teal ATS 597 (Angola) - front scan by Manuel García Jara (all variants)

This very rare single with a Dylan cover on the B-side was released in the former Portuguese colony of Angola by Discos Teal Roda LDA of Luanda on behalf of Atlantic Records. There are two mistakes on the first B-side label - the song title is given as "Just Lik A Woman" and the record company is given as "Atantic" to the right of the centre hole. Ronald Born has a copy with the same front sleeve and record labels, but the rear sleeves are different. (Manuel explains there are actually four different rear sleeves and three different record labels.)

Other worldwide Atlantic single examples showing this was the regular B-side

Manuel's second copy shown has a third rear sleeve design and a second record label design - Just Like A Woman and "Atlantic" to the right of the centre hole are now correct, but the label has been printed at the wrong size so that "Atlantic" to the right of the centre hole is truncated to "Atlant" and the circumference text is almost entirely missing (some is just visible on the right edge). A fourth copy with a fourth variant rear sleeve design and a third variant record label will be added soon.

Other Atlantic single examples are included to show this was the regular B-side for this 7" release.

Martin Carthy - "The Carthy Chronicles" - 4CD boxed set, Free Reed Records FRQCD-60 (UK), Apr 2001:


Free Reed Records FRQCD-60 (UK) - picture from Free Reed Records web-site

The Winter 2000 issue of Dylan fanzine "The Bridge" reported Bob would be heard playing harmonica on Martin Carthy's version of The Lonesome Death Of Hattie Carroll, which now appears on the boxed set The Carthy Chronicles from Free Reed Records. I later heard from Neil Wayne of Free Reed Records that this would sadly not be the case (presumably they couldn't get permission to use the performance with Bob). However, the boxed set (pictured left from the Free Reed web-site) is still of great interest to Dylan fans. Martin Carthy championed the unknown Bob Dylan during his visit to England in late 1962/early 1963 and helped him to get him gigs at small folk clubs in the London area. The set booklet includes text about Bob and a photograph of Martin and Bob performing together at the Troubadour in London on 15 Jan 1963. And several of the songs will be familiar to Dylan fans...

For more information see the Free Reed web-page or contact Neil Wayne - the set can be ordered online from them, and is available at amazon.com and amazon.co.uk.

Went To See The Gypsy - alternate take to the version released on New Morning
This take (now revealed to be Bobless!) is described by Al Kooper as "a conception I had for Dylan to sing over". Performers are Al Kooper (guitars/organ/vocals), P. P. Arnold (vocals), Tom Cosgrove (guitar), Stu Woods (bass) and Rick Marotta (drums). The only recording details given are "Columbia Studios, New York, 1970", but Michael Krogsgaard in his series of articles "Bob Dylan: The Recording Sessions" shows Cosgrove and Marotta present at the New Morning sessions only at an overdub session on 30 Jun 1970, so I assume this session is where this track comes from. This version of the song also appears on the French 2CD set Chroniques Volume 1, see 2005.

Thanks to Ian Woodward for scans of the promo "Special Advanced CD" which comes in a 2CD slimline jewel case instead of a digipak and has the commercial release colour artwork in monochrome.

This album recorded live at Arlene Grocery, New York, 13 Aug 2002, by Mary Lee Kortes and her band recreates Bob's classic 1974 album track by track, with the added piquancy that the songs are sung by a woman with no lyric gender changes. Mary Lee invites a male audience member to join her in singing Lily, Rosemary And The Jack Of Hearts, which he does extremely badly!

Robyn Hitchcock - "Robyn Sings Bob Dylan" - 2CD set, Editions PAF (catalogue number?) (UK), 5 Nov 2002:

Back-up singers on this song are Betty Wright and Aisha McCrary, while other songs were co-written with Burt Bacharach, Carly Simon and Carole King who sings backup on their composition.
