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. This page contains details of covers of Blowin' In The Wind, in some cases with extremely fanciful translations of the title. In countries like France, Germany or Sweden Blowin' In The Wind was always translated, with rare exceptions, as "Écoute Dans Le Vent", "Die Antwort Weiss Ganz Allein Der Wind" or "Vinden Ger Svar". However, in Spanish-speaking countries this song was translated in many different ways. Although the most usual were "La Respuesta Está En El Viento [The Answer Is In The Wind]" or "Soplando En El Viento [Blowing In The Wind]", there were many others, some of them amazing, like "Saber Que Vendrás [To Know He Will Come]", "Saber Que Estárás [To Know You Will Stay]", "Quisiera Saber [I Would Like To Know]", "Solo El Tiempo Puede Contestarnos [Only Time Can Answer Us]" and even "Algo Flota En El Viento [Something Floats In The Wind]"!

Even though there are over 1000 cover versions of this song, I have no details of singles chart success. In the UK Blowin' In The Wind has only entered the singles chart twice, in 1963 for Peter, Paul and Mary (#13) and in 1966 for Stevie Wonder (#36).

Because of the great length of the original page, it has been divided in three parts, of which this is Part 1 (1963-65). Links to Parts 2 and 3 are below, along with a page devoted to the large number of releases by Peter, Paul & Mary containing Blowin' In The Wind:

Because of the large numbers of releases by Peter, Paul and Mary containing Blowin' In The Wind, they have been moved here.

Odetta - "Odetta Sings Folk Songs" - mono 7" EP, RCA Victor EPA-2643 (West Germany), Aug 1963:


RCA Victor EPA-2643 (West Germany) - 7" EP front scan by Manuel García Jara
Odetta was the first artist to release an entire album with Dylan covers (Odetta Sings Dylan, 1965). Also in 1965 Duane Eddy recorded Duane Eddy Does Bob Dylan, all instrumental covers. The album Odetta Sings Dylan included ten covers, some of them were unreleased by Bob at the time (Baby, I'm In The Mood For You, Long Ago, Far Away, Long Time Gone, Walkin' Down The Line and Tomorrow Is A Long Time).  Blowin' In The Wind wasn't originally included on this album. Her version first appeared on Odetta Sings Folk Songs (1963). Another unreleased Dylan track, Paths Of Victory, was recorded for the album Odetta Sings Of Many Things (1964). Blowin' In The Wind and Paths Of Victory were added as bonus tracks to Odetta Sings Dylan when the album was reissued in CD in 2000.

RCA Victor LSP 3324 (USA, stereo) - 1965 LP that did not include Blowin' In The Wind, but the 2000 CD release has it as a bonus track

This West German EP includes four tracks from Odetta Sings Folk Songs including Blowin' In The Wind, the only Dylan song, track 1 on the B-side. It was released in both promotional and commercial versions. Both have the same sleeve and a generic Teldec inner sleeve, printed on one side only. The commercial EP has black labels with silver lettering, while the promotional record has white labels with black text and the promo text "Unverkäufliche Musterplatte". There are also some differences in the record labels: the promotional EP labels have a big RCA logo at centre top, but no "RCA VICTOR", and a single line of copyright text that goes all the way round the circumference; the commercial labels have "RCA VICTOR", a smaller RCA logo, and two lines of copyright text that goes only part way round the circumference.

Liberty LST-7330/SE-100 (USA) - jukebox EP front scan by Manuel García Jara (rear is plain white)
This stereo EP (or "Little LP") was again intended for jukebox use only, and comes in a plain white card sleeve with the front design pasted on. The generic Liberty 7" sleeve (see below) is missing. The outer sleeve also holds two sheets of six jukebox strips as well as six mini reproductions of the album front. In this case the mini album pictures are present but one complete sheet of jukebox strips is missing as well as two strips from the remaining sheet.

Liberty LST-7330/SE-100 (USA) - jukebox EP B-side scan by Manuel García Jara

The stereo record has six tracks from the stereo album. His cover of Blowin' In The Wind is track 2 on the B-side.

According to the album sleeve notes, Bob Harter started his musical career as an opera singer but finally he became a studio singer: his voice can be heard on other artists' records (e.g. Harry Belafonte) and on many TV jingles. This early cover of Blowin' In The Wind was originally included on his album The Bob Harter Songbag (Liberty LST-7330, USA stereo, 1963), an album of folk song covers. The front design of this EP is different from the album front (the mini pics have the front of the original album).

George "Stardust" Green - "Holdin' On"/"Blowin' In The Wind" - 7" mono singles, Mac-An Records MA-1001 (USA), 1963 (first release), Mac-An Records MA-1002 (USA), 1963 (second release):


Mac-An Records MA-1001 (USA) - 7" mono single B-side scan by Manuel García Jara
This single was originally released by Mac-An, an obscure label from Chicago, IL, in 1963 with golden labels, catalogue number MA-1001, in a plain white sleeve (this record company never had its own generic sleeve). For some reason this single must have been reissued quickly because there is a second release of the same single, now with the consecutive catalogue number MA-1002, the same tracklist but different green labels. This time it has a white sleeve that looks like homemade with green lettering. The rear sleeve is blank.

Marie Laforêt - "Blowin In The Wind" - 7" mono EP and single releases, Festival (various catalogue numbers) (Worldwide), 1963 onwards:

"Marie Laforêt Chante Quatre Chansons De Folklore Américaine [Marie Laforêt Sings Four American Folk Songs]" - 7" mono EP releases, Festival ALB 5011 (France), 1963; Festival FX 45 1353 (France)/Festival FEP 1353 (Belgium), 1963:


Festival ALB 5011 (France) - EP front scan by Ronald Born (release from book, see below)

This is the original 1963 French release of Blowin' In The Wind by French actress/singer Marie Laforêt on Festival Records, on an EP with Blowin' In The Wind, Flora (Lily Of The West), House Of The Risin' Sun and Banks Of The Ohio. All songs are sung in English, which is why the titles aren't translated. Two copies of this EP are shown, the first with the grey sleeve from Ronald Born is the original from 1963 which originally came inside a book, see below.

The EP with the attractive colour sleeve is a subsequent separate release. The record labels are similar apart from the different catalogue numbers, and both are undated. The very rare reissue released in France after 1967 has some differences from the earlier version: the front sleeve has lighter colours; the rear sleeve has a small sticker with the code "P4" above the Festival logo, a small promotional hole that doesn't affect the front, a cut-out edge, no fold-over flaps, and, although the printer is still MSP, the printer text is different. The record labels look identical but the original release of 1963 has the copyright text written mostly in the upper half circumference (clockwise, starting at 8 and ending at 4), while this reissue copy has the copyright text hardly visible, but printed mostly in the lower half circumference (clockwise, starting at 2 and ending at 10)!

This separate release was also released in Belgium with the same catalogue number on the sleeve but another catalogue number, FEP 1353, on the record itself. It was originally released with a grey record label, and re-released in 1964 with a royal blue record label, which is very rare. The 1964 rear sleeve has a sticker from a record store in Liège.

Festival FX 45 1353 (France for Scandinavia) - EP front scan by Manuel García Jara

This rare version of Festival FX 45 1353 was bought in Sweden in Dec 1965. It was made in France to be exported to Scandinavian countries. The sleeve and record labels look identical to that of the original separate French release, but there is an important detail on the Side 1 record label: it now has the logos of "BIEM" and "NCB", the Scandinavian copyright association. There is a date "25 OCT. 1965" stamped on both labels.

Book + EP Set - Book: "La Conquête de l'Ouest [How The West Was Won]" edited by Gautier-Languereau, (France/Belgium), 1963; EP: "Marie Laforêt Chante Quatre Chansons De Folklore Américaine", Festival ALB 45 5011 (France), 1963/Festival FEP 1353, (Belgium), 1963:


Book front with stickers (France/Belgium) - scan by Manuel García Jara
In 1962 the Western movie "How The West Was Won" (Metro Goldwyn Mayer - USA), directed by John Ford and other directors, had a massive commercial success around the world; this success generated a big merchandising efort: this set published in 1963 in France and in Belgium was a good example. It is an official set edited by Gautier-Languereau in behalf of Cinerama-Metro Goldwyn Mayer. The book was released widely, but only a limited quantity of copies also included the EP performed by Marie Laforêt. These tracks were recorded appropriately in English exclusively for this set, but they were later released also on a separate EP (the one above with the image of Marie Laforêt).

Festival FEP 1353 (Belgium) - B-side scan by Manuel García Jara

Inside of book with EP (Belgium) - scan by Manuel García Jara

This EP can be found only in this set and it was never released separately; it has a monochrome sleeve fixed to the inside of the book cover, although some sellers used to sell this EP removing the sleeve from the book (as Ronald Born's copy above), the value of the book and EP together is much higher than the two items separately. The sleeve has a mistake: the catalogue number here is "ABL 45 5011", but the book and record label have "ALB 45 5011".

The large sized book has two small stickers on the front: one at bottom left with the text "Marie Laforet chante le folklore américain", and another at bottom right with the Festival logo and catalogue number (there are no stickers on books that don't include the EP). The French and Belgian sets have the same book, but the records have different catalogue numbers.

The first of Marie's records ever published in UK were a compilation LP and an EP from Ember Records in 1966, both with the same title, "The Girl With The Golden Eyes" taken from a film made by Marie in 1961, "La fille aux yeux d'or".

The UK compilation LP, (Ember Records NR 5034, mono, and STNR 5034, stereo) with a beautiful coloured sleeve, includes the four tracks released in 1963 on the French EP above. The stereo EP shown, originally released in France in mono in 1963, was released in the UK in 1966 not only with the identical tracklist, but also with the same catalogue number (1353). The EP front has a monochrome version of the album sleeve with the tracklist and a red Ember logo. The EP rear sleeve is also in monochrome. The record has red and yellow Ember labels. There does not appear to be a DVD release of the 1961 film under its French or English titles.

The Folkestone Three - "Blowin' In The Wind"/"Frankie and Johnny" - 7" mono single, Kiwi Records SA-33 (New Zealand), Oct 1963:


Kiwi Records SA-33 (New Zealand) - front with stamps, scan by Bill Hester
The Folkestone Three were New Zealanders who moved to the UK in 1964 where they became the Harbour Lites. This record was the first cover version of a Dylan song to be released in New Zealand by New Zealand artists. The record was made by Kiwi Records of Wellington, New Zealand - shown is a radio station copy with a play card starting on 6 Oct 1963 and finishing in May 1966. The rear sleeve is plain, but that of the first copy  has an Allan's copyright stamp and the radio station number "2605" (Allan's were music publishers in Australia for Bob Dylan records between 1965 and 1969). Manuel García Jara's copy has no stamps on the sleeve and a different radio station stamp on the A-side. Bob recorded Frankie And Johnny as Frankie And Albert on Good As I Been To You in 1992.

This is believed to be the first cover of Blowin' In The Wind ever recorded by a Swedish artist with the Swedish lyrics by Tore Lagergren, translated as "Vinden Ger Svar [The Wind Gives Answers]". Otto, Berndt & Beppo were a folk trio ("the Swedish version of The Kingston Trio", as stated on the rear sleeve of the EP). There are two different record labels for the EP, one blue and the other black. Their performance was also released in Sweden as the A-side of a 7" mono single with picture sleeve (HMV X 8641), with Minns Du Än? [Do You Remember?] on the B-side.

This cover of Blowin' In The Wind was recorded in Sweden by Beverly and Josh White Jr., children of US bluesman Josh White. The 1963 Swedish EP was released in the UK with the same front sleeve by Realm, part of Oriole Records who made records for CBS and who were bought by CBS in Sep 1964 (the Realm label was continued by CBS into the early 1970s). Two tracks from the Swedish EP with Blowin' In The Wind as the A-side were released on Swedisc in 1963 and on a different Swedish record label in 1966.

GNP Crescendo GNP 300x (USA) - 7" mono promo single in generic sleeve, A-side scan by Manuel García Jara

Dennis & Rogers were Johnny Dennis and Netta Rogers. GNP stands for "Gene Norman Presents" - Gene Norman was the President of the US record company, founded in 1954. The US and UK promo singles are both dated 1963 and the US single has text "From Dennis & Rogers Sing Folk Hits Of The Sixties GNP Crescendo GNP #88". Albums such as the UK Vogue release pictured on right are dated as 1970 on some web-sites, but must be reissues. The Nashville Swedish single has its own picture sleeve, also promoting the GNP Crescendo album on the rear, but the copy shown actually has the UK Vocalion single inside! There was also a Swedish record with red vinyl as shown.

Metronome B 1584 (Denmark) - 7" mono single front scan by Manuel García Jara

Nina and Frederik were Danish singer Nina Magdelena Møller and Dutch aristocrat Frederik, Baron van Pallandt. They were popular throughout Europe, as the number of EPs on the rear sleeve of their Spanish EP shows. The UK single did not have a picture sleeve, and was released by the Columbia that was part of EMI, not connected to CBS Records. The Danish and Dutch singles were released on the Swedish Metronome label. The West German single has a picture sleeve with identical artwork and catalogue number as the Dutch edition. However, this is a real "bag-type" sleeve that opens at the top, instead of the usual Dutch folded insert. The Spanish EP was released by Belter under licence from Metronome. "Dylan" is misspelled "Dyland" on the Spanish rear sleeve and B-side record label.

Brunswick STA 8525 (UK, 1962, mono) - album by the US Tarriers (no Dylan material)

This very rare mono EP was pressed in Holland but the sleeve was printed in Singapore to be sold there -  as far as I know, it was never available in Holland or in any other country. There is a copy on www.popsike.com with a stamp on the rear sleeve from a record store in Kuala Pilah, Malaysia. The live album by the US group The Tarriers shown has no Dylan material, although it does include The Water Is Wide, performed by Bob in the early 1960s and during the Rolling Thunder Revue, but not recorded, and Mary Ann, included on 1973's deleted album, Dylan.

Cupol SEP 359 (Sweden) - 7" mono EP front scan by Hanns Peter Bushoff (both variants)
Karl-Erik "Cacka" Israelsson was a Swedish Olympic athlete who went on to appear in films and become a singer, composer and lyricist. He died in 2013. His cover of Blowin' In The Wind has the Swedish lyrics by Tore Lagergren, translated as "Vinden Ger Svar [The Wind Gives Answers]". The song appears on a Swedish EP, two versions of which are shown, and also as the B-side of a Swedish single, three versions of which are also shown.

These EPs all have the same front sleeve, but the rear sleeves have different coloured rectangles. The first sleeve has records with both label designs, the second sleeve comes with a record with the green/white label design only. Three variants of the second label designs are shown, but the second may just have had the centre pushed out. The third variant again has a push-out centre, but is missing "III" to the right of the centre hole.

The rear of the second single is blank. The EP and singles are undated on the sleeve and record labels, but an online discography dates them as 1963. Manuel has a third single with the variant 1 front and rear sleeve with a handwritten date of "16/9-63" (16 Sep 1963) on the rear. The record in this sleeve is made of blue vinyl and has an open centre.

JoeVan JV-006 (Trinidad & Tobago) - 7" mono single A-side scan by Manuel García Jara (includes Dylan cover)
This very rare single is from Trinidad & Tobago, as are other records on the JoeVan label. Blowin' In The Wind is an instrumental cover in Latin-Caribbean style. Bob's name is wrongly shown as "Bob Eylam"! The B-side is sung in Spanish. The record is undated but must be from around 1963.

Arcade EP/M 1009 (Belgium) - EP A-side scan by Manuel García Jara

The Dockx Brothers were a folk-rock band from Belgium who sang in Flemish, the Dutch dialect spoken in Belgium. This band recorded several 7" records for Moonglow Records, then a Belgium label and later established in the USA; in the late 1960s Moonglow was bought by Atlantic. Dave Plentus gave "1963" as the date of release of this EP because "1963" appears in the rear sleeve text, but this year is the date of a TV appearance by this band, not the date of release. Manuel thinks the EP was released later. Blowin' In The Wind is track 2 on the A-side, translated into Flemish as "Woorden In De Wind [Words In The Wind]".

This EP was also released in Belgium with the title "De Vaganten [The Vagrants]" with the same tracklist and a similar catalogue number by a different record company, Arcade Records. The rear sleeve of the Arcade EP is blank.

Disques Benoît Zimmerman BZ 10100 (Switzerland) - 7" mono EP front scan by Manuel García Jara
This obscure cover of Blowin' In The Wind is very rare. The group Le Croque Notes were from the French-speaking Swiss canton of Neuchâtel, which is where the small record company of Disques Benoît Zimmerman was based. Their version is sung in French as "Écoute Dans Le Vent [Listen To The Wind]". This is the title for Blowin' In The Wind used when the song was arranged and translated into French by Pierre Dorsey primarily for Richard Anthony, the most important artist who covered the song in French in 1965 (see below).

Although the rear sleeve indicates that Blowin' In The Wind is track 1 on the A-side, the sides on the record itself are reversed, and the Dylan song is actually track 1 on the B-side.

These extremely rare EPs were given away by Belk's, a US department store and Leggett's, an associate store of Belk's, to their customers for a limited period of time. The cover of Blowin' In The Wind on the B-side by the Blue Notes is an imitation of the one made by Peter, Paul & Mary with similar harmonies. The song is credited to "Bob Dyland" on both B-sides! The two EPs are exactly the same except for the "Belk's" or "Leggett's" text on the front and rear of the sleeve and at the top of the record labels.

The three non-Dylan tracks are by the Ziggy Hurwitz Orchestra - Look Young, Be Young is repeated on the B-side.

This mono 7" single from an unnamed record company has no country of origin but is identified on the Internet as having been pressed in Jamaica, certainly the music is Jamaican style. Blowin' In The Wind is the A-side, although listed as the B-side on the rear sleeve. The front sleeve has a photo of Addie Lee but isn't record-specific, and has a sticker with what looks like a radio station catalogue number. Although the sleeve and record are undated, there are some handwritten dates on the rear sleeve, the oldest being "4/22/64" (22 Apr 1964).

Мелодия (Melody) 33Д-14911 (USSR) - Side 1 scan by Vladimir Krutoshinskij (Marlene's Dylan cover is track 1)

Marlene Dietrich sings the same version of Blowin' In The Wind with German lyrics by Hans Bradtke as for the 1963 German/Dutch releases by Peter Paul and Mary ( see here), and a German translation of Puff The Magic Dragon on the B-side.

The German Electrola label has the sub-title "Die Stimme seines Herrn [His Master's Voice]". Manuel García Jara has a copy in a generic Electrola "party" sleeve with a gold "Frohe Weihnachten [Merry Christmas]" sticker on the rear. This copy has the "BIEM" copyright organisation logo missing from the text to the left of the centre hole. This single was also released in Holland on the His Master's Voice label with a different catalogue number but in the German sleeve (Manuel has other Dutch Marlene Dietrich singles in German sleeves). It was also released in Denmark, again on the His Master's Voice label with the same catalogue number as the Dutch single, but with a different sleeve.

Thanks to Vladimir Krutoshinskij for details of a Various Artists 10" mono LP record from Riga, Latvia, (then part of the USSR) from 1964. The album is on the Мелодия (Melody) record label and is called Зарубежные Артисты Эстрады – Гости Москвы [Foreign Variety Artists - Guests of Moscow]. Blowin' In The Wind is track 1 on Side 1 and the song title in Russian is "Ответ знает только ветер [The Only Answer Is The Wind]".

Thanks to Dr. Hanns Peter Bushoff and Manuel García Jara for information and scans.


Marlene Dietrich - "Die Antwort Weiß Ganz Allein Der Wind [Only The Wind Knows The Answer (Blowin' In The Wind)]"/"Sag Mir Wo Die Blumen Sind [Tell Me Where The Flowers Are (Where Have All The Flowers Gone?)]" - 7" mono single, Amiga 4 40 032 (East Germany), 1964, re-released 1980:

Amiga 4 40 032 (East Germany) - 7" single front scan from www.45cat.com (1964 release)

The B-side of the East German Amiga single is the Pete Seeger song, again with German lyrics. The Jun 1964 Amiga promo EP "Der Klingende Monatsschau [The Sounding Monthly Show]" includes excerpts of both her songs. This Amiga single was re-released in 1967, 1969 and 1980. The 1967 front sleeve is the same as the 1964 front except for a different Amiga logo at top right. Manuel García Jara has a copy of the 1967 single still in the East German record store bag with a dated receipt where the record labels are the same as those of the 1964 single except for a missing "N" in the number below "BIEM" to the left of the centre hole. Ronald Born's 1967 copy comes in the same sleeve but the A-saide record label just has a "1" below "BIEM". The 1969 single had a new sleeve design but the same record labels as Ronald's 1967 single.

The 1980 single had a third sleeve design and was released twice with two different labels, the first was wine red, and the second was blue. The Amiga East German release of the 1966 Dutch compilation Bob Dylan's Greatest Hits also has these two label styles, see International Album Releases (Dylan-Only Compilations) 1960s.

Mary and the Moonlights - "Schau In Die Welt"/"Die Antwort Weiß Ganz Allein Der Wind [Only The Wind Knows The Answer (Blowin' In The Wind)]" - 7" mono single, Derby Records 45-1070 (West Germany), 1964:


Derby Records 45-1070 (West Germany) - front (variants 1 & 2)
Mary and the Moonlights were a Berlin-based group who enjoyed limited success in 1963-64. Mary sings the same version of Blowin' In The Wind with German lyrics by Hans Bradtke as for the 1963-64 German/Dutch releases by Peter Paul and Mary and Marlene Dietrich above.

The same record came in four different sleeves: variants 1 and 2 had the same front sleeve, but the rear of variant 2 was the same as the front with the photo of Mary. Variant 3 had a white sleeve with the A-side title and a line drawing, with the rear blank. Variant 4 is the rarest and has the same front as Variant 3 plus German text in red lettering: "Der Reingewinn ist für die mildtätigen und gemeinnutzigen Verbände in Berlin bestimmt [The net profit is intended for charitable and non-profit organisations in Berlin]". This text is printed, not a sticker or a stamp, so it implies that this was a special edition. This time the rear sleeve is not blank, it has the same design as the front but with the hands drawing in reverse and the red text at bottom right instead of bottom left.

Scans of variant 1 taken from an Internet blog by Andreas Michalke. Thanks to Manuel García Jara for further information and scans of variants 2-4.

There are two sleeve variants, the second is missing "Blowin' In The Wind" on the front and the rear sleeve has a unique French "languette" or index tab. The record is orange instead of red.

This stereo single was reissued in 1983, again in the "Dance For Ever" series but this time as #17! The front sleeve of this reissue is similar to that of the original 1964 French EP front. This time the single had injection type labels.

Pathé/Capitol 77.540 (Canada) - 7" single B-side scan by Ronald Born (1965 release)
In 1965 Capitol Records (the distributor of EMI in USA and Canada) had in Canada its own subsidiary of Pathé for records made by French artists or sung in French by Canadian artists. In the late 1960s, these kinds of records were made and distributed by Capitol itself. The second record is a late 1960s to mid 1970s reissue: this design of labels was used by Capitol for the first time in 1968 in the USA and later in Canada.

EMI/Pathé 45AQ 1300 (Italy) - 7" single front scan by Manuel García Jara (first release)
EPs released in Italy were very scarce, so La Playa and Blowin' In The Wind were released there as the A- and B-sides of a mono 7" single. The first release comes in a regular picture sleeve and the record has red labels. This first release is very rare.

The single was re-released with a completely different front sleeve and a cut-out jukebox strip on the rear sleeve. There were two variants of the second release of this single, both with the same front sleeve. The record labels are different from that of the first release. The first second release rear sleeve has a pink/black EMI-Pathé logo at top right, and the artist name and track titles in pink, green and blue. The jukebox strip has the Pathé logo on a yellow background. The record has dark maroon labels.

The other second release rear sleeve has a black and white EMI-Pathé logo at top right, and this time the artist name and Blowin' In The Wind are in pink, and La Playa is in black. There is a different cut-out on the open edge and the jukebox strip printed on the rear now has a picture of the artist instead of the Pathé logo. The record has black labels.

Sam Cooke - "Sam Cooke at The Copa" - two stereo 7" EPs, RCA Victor TLP 2970 (USA), Sep 1964:


RCA Victor TLP 2970 (USA) - 2EP set front scan by Manuel García Jara (rear is plain white)
The album Sam Cooke at The Copa was recorded live at The Copacabana, New York City, on 8 Jul 1964 and it was originally released by RCA as stereo and mono albums (RCA Victor LSP/LPM 2970) in Sep 1964, only a few months before Sam Cooke died in Dec 1964. The album includes 11 tracks,  but this double EP (or "Little LP") was also released with 9 of those 11 tracks, including Blowin' In The Wind (track 2 of the A-side of EP2).

It has the same front as that of the original album, with a sleeve made of heavy cardboard with the front design pasted on, blank on the rear. The records inside have generic "Compact 33 Single RCA Victor" sleeves. Ronald Born's copy has an empty window envelope stuck to the rear sleeve, this is not an original feature, but was added by jukebox owners to store the jukebox strips.

Decca SDGE 80882 (Spain) - EP B-side scan by Manuel García Jara

The Vagabonds were a Jamaican band. In 1964 they moved to UK and they signed for Decca Records. This EP dates from 1964 and it includes a cover of Blowin' In The Wind.

The Spanish market was very strange and for some reason this EP was also released there and it is very rare. It was made by Discos Columbia S.A., San Sebastian (not Columbia Records in the USA/Canada or the Columbia label owned by EMI, but a third Columbia) for Decca Records, part of RCA. Like the Jan 1964 Spanish EP by Peter, Paul and Mary listed above, also made by RCA, the Spanish translation of Blowin' In The Wind is identical: "Soplando Al Viento". This translation is on the rear sleeve, although not on the Side B record label.

Fitz Major - "Blowing In The Wind" - 7" mono single, Golden Sound (no catalogue number) (Jamaica), 1964:


7" single A-side scan by Manuel García Jara
This rare Jamaican single wrongly attributes Blowin' In The Wind to Sam Cooke (misspelled Sam "Cook"). Thanks to Ronald Born for information that Fitz Major sings different lyrics from the Dylan version, e.g. "How many roads must black people walk down?". However, these are not the lyrics sung by Sam Cooke above, who sings the Dylan words.

Percy Faith and his Orchestra - "Percy Faith And His Orchestra Play Great Folk Themes" - stereo 7" jukebox EP, Columbia 7-8908 (USA), 1964 (two variants):


Columbia 7-8908 (USA) - EP front scan by Manuel García Jara (first variant)
These stereo EPs (or "Little LPs") were intended for jukebox use only. The first EP variant is the same as the 1963 Village Stompers Epic "Little LP" above with a folded sleeve including ten jukebox strips and three colour mini reproductions of the EP cover. The record comes in a generic Columbia "STEREO 33 RPM" inner sleeve and has Columbia "STEREO SEVEN" blue/white labels with text "SPECIAL COIN OPERATOR RELEASE". It has six tracks from Percy's stereo album shown. His cover of Blowin' In The Wind is track 2 on the B-side of the EP.

The second EP variant has a regular heavy card sleeve with a plain white rear. The front is not quite the same as the first EP variant and the album front, both of which list all the tracks. This time there are 16 jukebox strips (four sets of four like the one shown) and four separate monochrome mini illustrations of the EP cover like the one shown, all inside the sleeve with the record. The album title on the second variant jukebox strips is incorrect - "Great Folk Melodies" instead of "Great Folk Themes".

Edigsa CM-78 (Spain) - EP front scan by Manuel García Jara
Queta & Teo were two Spanish children who sang in Mallorquí, a variant of Catalan spoken in the Balearic Islands. Their Mallorquí cover of Blowin' In The Wind (Peter, Paul and Mary's version, not Bob's, which was then unreleased in Spain) is translated as "Només Ho Sap Es Vent [Only The Wind Knows]". Bizarrely, title of this EP from small Barcelona-based record label Edigsa is "Queta & Teo Canten Surf [Queta & Teo Sing Surf]"! The tracks include "El Martellet [Little Hammer]", a cover of Pete Seeger's If I Had A Hammer. "Dylan" is misspelled "Dyland" on both the rear sleeve and the B-side record label.

La Voix De Son Maître [His Master's Voice] 7 EGF 709 (France) - EP front scan by Manuel García Jara
French trumpeter Georges regularly collaborated with singer Dominique on albums, singles and EPs during the early 1960s, although she does not sing on Blowin' In The Wind, which is an instrumental.

Blowin' In The Wind is translated into French as "Écoute Dans Le Vent [Listen To The Wind]". This is the title for Blowin' In The Wind used when the song was arranged and translated into French by Pierre Dorsey for Richard Anthony, the most important artist who covered the song in French in 1965 (see below). However, as Dorsey's lyrics aren't used the song is credited to "B. Dylan" only.

Blowin' In The Wind is track 3 on the B-side. It is translated again into French as "Écoute Dans Le Vent [Listen To The Wind]", the title for Blowin' In The Wind used when the song was arranged and translated into French by Pierre Dorsey for Richard Anthony, the most important artist who covered the song in French in 1965 (see below). However, the French lyrics are not the same as Dorsey's and the translator is not credited.

This EP was made in Argentina by Sicamericana S.A.C.I.F.I. and released by Music-Hall Records. It was released twice in Argentina in 1965, and reissued in 1967. There are two front sleeve variants and three variants of the rear sleeve and record labels.

The first and rarest edition has a front sleeve with a blue panel with song titles in Spanish only. The rear sleeve is white, with two folded-over flaps. "MUSIC-HALL/60.111" is at rear reartop left, "33 RPM/DOBLE" at top right and "Vanguard S.R.L." is printed on the flap at bottom centre.  The song titles are in Spanish only and have composer credits.  There is information about other Music-Hall EPs, the lowest catalogue number is "60.064" and the highest is "60.089". The record has white and blue Music-Hall/Reprise labels. On the record labels the EP title is "TRINI LOPEZ FOLKLORICO", the song titles are again in Spanish only and the composer credits are inside brackets.

The second and most common release of the EP is also from 1965, was again made by Sicamericana S.A.C.I.F.I. for Music-Hall/Reprise. The front picture is a crop of the photo from the first release; it now has a higher green panel with song titles in Spanish. The rear sleeve is white, this time without flaps. Like the previous release, "MUSIC-HALL/60.111" is at rear top left and "33 RPM/DOBLE" at top right. "Vanguard S.R.L." is now printed at bottom left and "INDUSTRIA ARGENTINA", not present on the first release rear sleeve, is printed at bottom right. The song titles are now in Spanish and in English and again have composer credits. Note the mistake: "Lado 2" has tracks 2 and 2, instead of 1 and 2. There is again information about other Music Hall EPs, this time the lowest catalogue number is "60.086" and the highest is "60.108"). The EP title is now "TRINI LOPEZ FOLKLORICO" plus "TRINI LOPEZ, Intérprete [performer]", the song titles are now in Spanish and English, the composer credits are again in brackets.

The rare 1967 EP was again made by Sicamericana S.A.C.I.F.I. for Music Hall/Reprise. The front sleeve is identical to that of the second 1965 release. The rear sleeve is white, without flaps but with a cut-out at the opening edge. Unlike the previous releases, "MUSIC-HALL - DOBLE/33 RPM" is now printed at rear top left and "REPRISE RECORDS/60.111" is at top right. As for the second 1965 release, "Vanguard S.R.L." is again printed again at bottom left and "INDUSTRIA ARGENTINA" at bottom right, but there is now the address of Sicamericana, not present on the second release sleeve. The song titles are again in Spanish and in English but the composer credits are now missing. The mistake "Lado 2" with tracks 2 and 2 instead of 1 and 2 has now been corrected. There is again information about other Music Hall EPs, this time the lowest catalogue number is "60.274" and the highest is "60.287", confirming that this EP has been reissued two years later. The record now has now orange and brown Reprise labels, a new design used since late 66. The EP title is again "TRINI LOPEZ FOLKLORICO" plus "TRINI LOPEZ, Intérprete [performer]". The song titles are again in Spanish and in English; but now the composer credits are without brackets.

Societé Internationale de Musique France sheet music scan by Manuel García Jara
There were several covers of Blowin' In The Wind made by French artists (e.g. Marie Laforêt, sung in English) and released before but this cover is very important because it became the standard translation into French. The song was arranged and translated into French by Pierre Dorsey as "Écoute Dans Le Vent [Listen To The Wind]" for Richard Anthony, the most important artist who covered the song in French in 1965. The 1965 covers by Dany Claude and Les Trois Ménestrels, Fiona in 1966, also the 1974 cover by Chorale du Lycée Technique Féminin de Quimper below all use this translation, which was first performed by the Swiss group Les Croque Notes in 1964, see above.

This was the equivalent Spanish EP to the French release above with different artwork (taken from a different French EP of this artist) but with the identical tracklist and in the same order (Blowin' In The Wind is again track 1 on the B-side). Blowin' In The Wind is listed on the rear sleeve and on the B-side record label in three languages: English, French (Écouté Dans Le Vent) and the usual Spanish translation on EMI records: "El Susurro Del Viento [The Whisper Of The Wind]", later used in the Brimstone single of 1970 listed below (it seems like each company had its own Spanish translation!).

La Voz De Su Amo [His Master's Voice] 7 EPL 14.039 (Spain) - EP B-side scan by Manuel García Jara

In Spain there was a third Columbia, not part of US Columbia, and not part of UK EMI but part of RCA (even though the Spanish subsidiary used the "Magic Notes" logo). Therefore this EP was not released in Spain by EMI-Columbia for legal reasons, but through another EMI subsidiary: La Voz de su Amo [His Master's Voice]. The existence of the RCA Columbia in Spain was the reason that albums were issued in Spain in the 1990s using the CBS/Sony name instead of the Columbia name that had replaced CBS everywhere else.

Although Blowin' In The Wind is sung in French, the title has been translated into Portuguese as "Escutando O Vento [Listening to the wind]". Both translations and the original English title appear on the B-side label.

Les 3 Ménestrels [The Three Minstrels] - "Les 3 Ménestrels" - 7" mono EP, Fontana 460.892 ME (France), 1965; 7" mono single,  Fontana 261.415 MF (France), 1965:


Fontana 460.892 ME (France) - EP front scan by Manuel García Jara

Les Trois Ménestrels (the Three Minstrels), were a successful trio based in Paris, consisting of Maria Sandrini (real name Ginette Jenevein, born in 1927), Raymond de Rycker (1929-1995) and Jean-Louis Fenoglio (1924-1976). They released many records from 1956 until 1976 when Jean-Louis was murdered by their manager, his partner.

This 1965 EP was released by Fontana, part of the Philips group. Their cover of Blowin' In The Wind has the standard French lyrics translated by Pierre Dorsey ("Écouté Dans Le Vent"). This track is credited only to Pierre Dorsey on the rear sleeve but to Bob Dylal (sic) and Pierre Dorsey on the A-side record label. Blowin' In The Wind is mistitled "Blowin' In The Winding" on the A-side record label. Also shown is a signed rear sleeve, dedicated to a previous owner and signed by the artists (Maria and Raymond in black, and Jean-Louis in red).

The copy owned by Ronald Born has the same front sleeve but there are differences on the rear sleeve and the A-side record label. The Dylan track is credited to "Bob Dylal - Pierre Dorsey" on the rear sleeve this time, and just to "Pierre Dorsey" on the A-side record label. This time the French title is not translated into English on the record label. Ronald also has a 7" mono single with Écouté Dans Le Vent as the A-side in a generic Fontana sleeve. The song is again credited to just "Pierre Dorsey" on the A-side record label, so it was probably released at the same time as the first EP variant. The B-side is Suliram, not on the EP.

Les Petits Chanteurs de Saint-Gilles de Moulins is another French boys choir from Moulins in central France. Their cover of Blowin' In The Wind again has the standard French lyrics translated by Pierre Dorsey ("Écouté Dans Le Vent"), although only Bob Dylan is credited on the rear sleeve and record label. The record was privately produced, so no record company is shown, although it has a catalogue number, 67 173. The tracks of this EP as listed on the rear sleeve are switched on the record, so that Blowin' In The Wind is listed as track 1 on the A-side, but is actually track 1 on the B-side.

Les Petits Chanteurs du Séminaire de Montbrisson is yet another French boys choir, again associated with the Roman Catholic Church.

Their cover of Blowin' In The Wind is track 1 on the B-side and again has the standard French lyrics translated by Pierre Dorsey ("Écoute Dans Le Vent") even though it is credited only to Dylan with the vocal arrangement credited to Maurice Duret.

This is yet another stereo EP (or "Little LP") intended for jukebox use only. This jukebox EP contains six tracks from the Imperial Records LP Johnny Rivers Rocks The Folk. In the mid-1960s, folk-rock was a successful genre and everyone wanted to do their own "folk-rock" album. One of those was this album by Johnny Rivers. The album front has some titles printed on front, including Mr. Tambourine Man but not Blowin' In The Wind. However this "Little LP" includes both Dylan covers on the A-side. The EP has the usual sleeve made of heavy cardboard with a pasted front design and a blank rear; it includes a page of ten jukebox strips and six mini-pics of the album front printed separately. The record comes in a generic Imperial Record singles sleeve.

Hispavox HH 17-312 (Spain) - EP front scan by Manuel García Jara

Los Pekenikes were the opening band when The Beatles played in Madrid on 2 Jul 1965. Although they were mainly known for instrumentals, Blowin' In The Wind is a vocal version. The song has been translated as "Quisiera Saber... [I Would Like To Know...]", the same title as on the 1966 Warner Bros Peter, Paul and Mary EP listed above, also made by Hispavox, but this time it has (Castilian) Spanish lyrics by R. Morena. (The song had previously been released in Spain by Queta & Teo above sung in Mallorquí, not Castilian Spanish.) This EP was also released in France by Barclay. Ronald Born's copy is a test pressing dated "AVR 1965 [Apr 1965]", but there was also a commercial release. The commercial EP shown has a stamp of Radio Monte Carlo in Monaco on the rear sleeve,

On the B-side are Ble'r Aeth Y Blodau? [Where Have All The Flowers Gone?] by Pete Seeger and Dominique. There are three releases of the EP with red record labels and a fourth release with dark blue record labels. The three releases of the EP in 1965 have a laminated front and two folded-over flaps on the rear.

  1. The rear sleeve of the first variant shown does not have any stickers. The record labels are red with "Side 1/2" (lowercase) and "CANEUON MODERN/Y MEILLION" on two lines.
  2. The rear sleeve of the first copy of the second variant shown has a Mecolico sticker with "5¾d" (Mecolico is a performing rights society: Mechanical Copyright Licences Company). My copy of the second 1965 variant does not have a Mecolico sticker on the rear. The record labels are again red with "SIDE 1/2" (uppercase) and "CANEUON MODERN - Y MEILLION" is on one line.
  3. The rear sleeve of the third variant shown again has a Mecolico sticker with "5¾d". This copy also has a store sticker from Caernarvon in North Wales. The record labels are again red, identical to those of the second release apart from two small differences: "EP" and "45" are in slightly different positions.
  4. The EP was re-released in the late 1960s. The front sleeve looks identical to that of the original release, but it is now not laminated. The rear sleeve has no flaps and has the Welsh text "Y PENTA" stamped on it. "Y Penta" means "The Hob" and is the name of a Welsh book shop in Carmarthen, West Wales. The record labels are very different: the colour is now dark blue instead of red, and there are also text differences: "Ochr" (Welsh) replaces "Side", and the record label now includes composer and musician credits; Bob is now credited as composer also on the A-side label.

Le Kiosque d'Orphée LKO MAL (France) - 7" EP front scan by Manuel García Jara
This is an extremely rare item in that it was again a private release. The sleeve is made of heavy cardboard and the printed paper front is glued to it, the rear as shown is blank. This EP includes six tracks sung "a capella" by students of the Girls' Technical High School of Quimper, a small town in the French region of Brittany. Four tracks are traditional tunes from different areas of France, and the other two tracks were recent songs of the time: Santiano was a hit in France in 1961 for Hugues Aufray and there is also a cover of Blowin' In The Wind. This is the version arranged and translated into French by Pierre Dorsey as "Écouté Dans Le Vent [Listening In The Wind]" for Richard Anthony, the first artist who covered the song in French in 1965 above. Almost all subsequent French versions use this translation.

Ronald Born has a copy with handwriting in French on the rear "année 73-74 classe de 1ere B [Year 73-74 Class 1st B]", but a copy for sale on eBay has "65" handwritten on the rear sleeve.
