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 3 (1970 onwards). Links to Parts 1 and 2 are below, along with a page devoted to the large number of releases by Peter, Paul & Mary containing Blowin' In The Wind:

Juan Migel - "Aizean Dabilla + 1" - mono 7" EP releases, Herri Gogoa H-17 (Spain), Jan 1970:


Herri Gogoa H-17 (Spain) - 7" mono EP front scan by Manuel García Jara (banned release)

This EP by the Basque artist Juan Migel includes a cover of Blowin' In The Wind sung in Euskera (the Basque language) and translated as "Aizean Dabilla" by the artist himself, although he is credited only on the rear of the folded insert, not on the A-side record label. The record was made by Discophon for Herri Gogoa (Popular Enthusiasm), a small label that specialised in folk music sung in Euskera. The sleeve is a folded insert. Although the date of release on the rear and on the record labels is 1969, there were some problems with censorship because of the "Ikurriña" (Basque flag, strongly associated with Basque independence) on the left of the front photo. For this reason, this sleeve was banned (note the stamped text "Prohibidas la venta y difusión [Sale and broadcast forbidden]" on the front and "Censura militar/San Sebastián [Military Censor/San Sebastian]" on the rear) and the few copies pressed never appeared in stores.

Herri Gogoa H-17 (Spain) - 7" mono EP A-side scan by Manuel García Jara (second commercial release variant)

The authorised version of this EP, now without the Basque flag, was not published until Jan 1970. Apart from this important detail, the rest of sleeve is identical to that of the censored version but the record labels are very different; however, both label designs were used for the authorised release. This new version includes a 4-page insert with lyrics in Euskera and their translations into Spanish.

The correct name and surname of this artist in Euskera is "Jon Mikel Irigarai", but note the influence of Spanish: his name is given as "Juan Miguel" in Spanish on the second A-side record label or "Juan Migel" on both sleeves and the first A-side label; His surname is given as "Irigaray" everywhere except on the first A-side label where it's shown correctly as "Irigarai" ("y" is not used in Euskera). Blowin' In The Wind is translated into Euskera as "Aizean Dabilla [Walkin' In The Wind]", although the Basque title given on the lyrics sheet is "Haizean Dabilla" (which is apparently more correct - "Aizean" may be a dialect form) as well as "Voletea En El Viento" in Castilian Spanish (which Manuel translates as "Fluttering In The Wind").

For a 1968 cover by Luis Amibilia in Euskera with a different translation, see Blowin' In The Wind Covers 1966-69. That too has three different Basque spellings: "Entzun Aizetan [Listening In The Wind]", "Antzun Aisetan" and also "Entzun Haizetan"!

This extremely rare five track private EP by Les 7 Alex (vocals) and Les Charlie's Brothers (musical accompaniment) with lyrics and musical arrangements by Marcel Dazin is another Christian connection: Blowin' In The Wind (track 2 on the B-side) has been adapted by M. Dazin, so it doesn't have the usual French translation by Pierre Dorsay. It has been translated as "Seigneur Écoute-nous [Lord, Listen To Us]" on the rear sleeve but as "Prière Universelle [Universal Prayer]" on the B-side record label.

Disques Corélia CC 72.722 (France) - 7" EP front scan by Manuel García Jara
This extremely rare EP has a sleeve that is laminated on the front only, with three fold-over flaps on the rear, as well as the "languette" or index tab unique to France. Their cover of Blowin' In The Wind (track 2 on the B-side) was 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. Almost all subsequent French versions use this translation, except that by Marie Laforêt, who sings in English. This time Pierre Dorsey is not credited on the rear sleeve or record label, where the song is credited only to "B. Dylan".

Raúl Bonoratt/Angekla Valdivia - "Introducción Al Ritmo: Lección 3 [Intruduction To Rhythm: Lesson 3]", 7" mono EP,  AB Editores MC-0215 (Mexico), 1970


AB Editores MC-0215 (Mexico) - A-side scan by Manuel García Jara (no Dylan)
This curious EP was Lección 3 [Lesson 3], the third part of a tuition course of 7" EPs for learning to play guitar. The A-side played by Raúl Bonoratt has exercises for chords "Mi (E)" and "La Menor (A minor)". The B-side includes two covers to practice with the guitar: "Mi Gran Noche", sung by Angela Valdivia with Raúl Bonoratt on guitar, and "La Respuesta Está En El Viento [Blowin' In The Wind]" with solo guitar again by Raúl Bonoratt. The notorious eBay seller of genuine Mexican records with counterfeit sleeves invented a fictional band called "Las Piedras Rodantes [The Rolling Stones"] for the fake sleeve for this record! This had the desired effect - a copy with this fake sleeve went for $104, as opposed to records without the sleeve selling for $3 to $5!

Seedfield Guides - "Seedfield Guides Sing" - mono 7" EP release, Eroica ERO/675/676 (UK), 1970(?):


Eroica ERO/675/676 (UK) - 7" EP front scan by Manuel García Jara
Eroica was a small record label based in Altrincham, Cheshire, near Manchester. The front of the sleeve is generic. Seedfield is an area of Bury, now Greater Manchester. The EP has six songs sung by the girls of the 20th Bury (Seedfield) Guide Unit. Blowin' In The Wind is track 2 on the A-side, miscredited to "Peter, Paul & Mary"! The A-side is numbered "M 675". I've dated this as 1970 because the catalogue number is midway between those of Eroica EPs listed on the Internet dated as 1967 and 1973.

Rafael - "Vati, Komm Wieder [Daddy, Come Back]"/"Die Antwort [The Answer (Blowin' In The Wind)]" - 7" mono single, Tonstudio Bauer 36784 (West Germany), early 1970s:


Tonstudio Bauer 36784 (West Germany) - 7" mono single front scan by Ronald Born (rear is the same)

The B-side of this obscure mono 7" single by a little boy called Rafael is the same version of Blowin' In The Wind with German lyrics by Hans Bradtke as for the German releases by Peter Paul and Mary, Marlene Dietrich, etc., above. The rear of the sleeve is the same as the front. The B-side title is just shown as "Die Antwort" on the sleeve, but it's correct on the B-side record label. Ronald Born does not know who Rafael is or was, but Günther Leimstoll was a composer and arranger from Stuttgart. The single must have been a private release because there is no record company name on the sleeve or record labels. The exact release year is unknown but may be the early 1970s.

Dominique - "Der Ewige Soldat [The Universal Soldier]"/Die Antwort Weiß Ganz Allein Der Wind [Only The Wind Knows The Answer (Blowin' In The Wind)] - mono 7" single, Polydor 2041 505 (West Germany), 1973:


Polydor 2041 505 (West Germany) - 7" mono single front scan by Manuel García Jara (rear is the same)
This single with injection type labels includes a cover of Blowin' In The Wind on the B-side, with the same German lyrics by Hans Bradtke. The A-side is a German version of Buffy Sainte-Marie's The Universal Soldier, made popular by Donovan. The sleeve is the same on both sides. The record labels are dated "1966", but Ronald Born says this is because the songs come from her 1966 album Krieg Im Frieden [War In Peace] (Brunswick, West Germany, 2911 105).

Also included on the Krieg Im Frieden album was a German language version of Farewell Angelina [Schlaf ein - Angelina (Go To Sleep - Angelina)] with lyrics by E. Bader, also recorded by Nana Mouskouri in 1975. The album was distributed by Polydor. However, Ronald Born thinks the single was not released at the same as the LP, so this is not a reissue. Another German single in Ronald's collection (Lay Lady Lay by James Last) has the Polydor catalogue number 2041 428, the same brown injection labels, and is definitely from 1973.

RCA TPBO 1013 (Italy) - 7" stereo single front scan by Manuel García Jara
This cover of Blowin' In The Wind, sung in English, was made by an Italian prog rock band, Blow Up, whose name was taken from the 1966 award-winning film by Michelangelo Antonioni (which was actually called "Blow-Up"), starring Vanessa Redgrave, David Hemmings and Sarah Miles. The track was included on their album also titled Blowin' In The Wind, which included another Dylan cover, Knockin' On Heaven's Door. There is also a commercial copy of the single and a different colour sleeve variant.

RCA Victor MLPS-126 (Peru) - promo 7" EP A-side scan by Manuel García Jara (no Dylan material)

The 7" promo only Peruvian EP was made by FTA Industria Peruana for RCA Victor. The sleeve has the same front of the original Italian album, not the front of the original single. The rear sleeve has the tracklist and some Spanish text at the bottom: "10 Años de FTA [10 Years of FTA]" and the usual slogan "Disco es cultura [A record is culture]" (a protest against purchase tax in Latin America on records but not books). The record labels are white with the handwritten speed "33 rpm". This Peruvian EP is unusual in that it has six (of twelve) tracks from the original album and because it is an EP by a single artist (Peruvian promo EPs usually have tracks by various artists). This EP was released with two different tracklists but with the same catalogue number, probably in error. The other EP includes We're An American Band, a cover of a Grand Funk Railroad song, instead of Blowin' In The Wind; this second EP with the variant tracklist but with the same artwork is actually Side 2 of the Italian album, track by track. This EP is extremely hard to get, not only because of its scarcity, but there is strong competition between Dylan and Beatles covers collectors (it is a rare example of record including covers of the four ex-Beatles). As far as Manuel knows, records by this band were released only in Italy. Apart from this EP, he doesn't know of any other record by this band released in other countries.

Thanks to Clinton Heylin for the information in his 2016 book "Judas! From Forest Hills to the Free Trade Hall - A Historical View of the Big Boo" that a scene in "Blow-Up" shows a door to a club where The Yardbirds are playing has a flyer which reads "Bob Dylan R.I.P. May 27th, 1966"!

Nathalie Noëlle - "Nathalie Noëlle" - 7" stereo EP, Disques VDS VDS 208 (France), 1974?:


Disques VDS VDS 208 (France) - 7" EP front scan by Manuel García Jara
This stereo-mono EP signed by the artist (she was only ten years old at the time) is also extremely rare. It is misdated as the 1960s elsewhere on the Internet, but must be from 1974 or later because La Paloma, Adieu (a French translation of the Spanish song La Paloma [The Dove] written by Sebastián Yradier with new lyrics by Catherine Desage) was a hit for Mireille Matthieu in France and elsewhere in Europe in 1973-74. The cover of Blowin' In The Wind is again the version arranged and translated into French by Pierre Dorsey as "Écouté Dans Le Vent [Listening In The Wind]". Unusually, the "SACEM" logo on the EP's A-side is on a sticker instead of being printed.

Rock Against Records RA 0183 (NL) - 7" stereo EP B-side scan by Manuel García Jara (no Dylan material)

The record has white labels. The A-side has the title "Anti Nuklear Side" and the B-side has "Anti Fascist Side". Track 2 on the A-side, "Straling" ("Radiation" in Dutch) is a partial cover of Blowin' In The Wind. The Dutch lyrics are an anti-nuclear adaptation of Blowin' In The Wind, with the identical structure: several verses with questions and a chorus with no answers, e.g.

Verse: Hoe hoog is de prijs voor de kernenergie [How high is the price for nuclear energy]?
Chorus: De straling, mijn vriend, die waait door de wind [The radiation, my friend, is blowing in the wind].

The verses have a different tune, but the music of the chorus is identical to Blowin' In The Wind. There are no composer credits for any track, but the insert says "Dank aan ...Bob Dylan voor inspiratie tegen kruisvluchtwapens, straling en fascisme [Thanks to ... Bob Dylan for inspiration against cruise missiles, radiation and fascism]". Despite the sleeve images, the titles of the tracks and the lyrics, this is not the expected hardcore and electric punk music - Megafoons play acoustic and slide guitars, violins, congas...

Atlantis, Klosterberg 13, Basel, Switzerland, 2014 - picture from Google StreetView

These tracks were taken from a Various Artists album titled Sixties-Rock: Schweizer Rockstars In Concert recorded live at the Atlantis, Basel, Switzerland, in Mar 1989 to commemorate the 25th anniversary of "Sonntagsblick", a Swiss newspaper. Blowin' In The Wind was performed by Toni Vescoli, sung in English. The front and rear sleeves are identical. Toni Vescoli later recorded an album of Dylan songs called Bob Dylan Songs: Mundart (BMG Ariola Schweiz 74321 132982, 1993) with all songs in Swiss German dialect, not including Blowin' In The Wind. Another Swiss artist featured on the album is Polo Hofer, who has also recorded many songs in Swiss German dialect on several albums, compiled on the 2CD set Polo Hofer Singt Bob Dylan 1981-2011 (Sound Service SCD 30, Switzerland, 2011). Again, Blowin' In The Wind is not included on this album.

As it happens, I worked in Basel for several years in the 1990s and 2000s, and visited the Atlantis many times to hear live music. The photo from Google StreetView is from 2014, but it hasn't changed!

US DVD release of 1960 film, picture from wikipedia.com

Before Marc Feld became Marc Bolan he had a short unsuccessful career as "Toby Tyler". (Toby Tyler was a boy who ran away from home to join a circus in a 1960 Walt Disney live action film.) As Toby Tyler he recorded two songs at Maximum Sound, Soho, London, in late 1964. These remained unreleased officially until 1999, when they were released as a CD single in Germany by Zinc Alloy with Blowin' In The Wind as the title track. Zinc Alloy also released a CD called The Maximum Sound Session with six takes of each song from that session. In 2006 the same two tracks were released in the UK as a 7" single by Earmark Records (part of Sanctuary Records) but this time The Road I'm On (Gloria), a song originally released by Dion (DiMucci) was the A-side and Blowin' In The Wind was the B-side.

Patty Duke Sings Songs From "Valley Of The Dolls"/Patty Duke Sings Folk Songs - Time To Move On (Real Gone Music/Capitol, USA, 2013) - "Two On One" CD release by Patty Duke with her cover of Blowin' In The Wind

The purpose of the Patty Duke Fanzine was to release covers of songs performed by Patty Duke by indie artists. Blowin' In The Wind was taken from Patty's 1968 folk album Patty Duke Sings Folk Songs - Time To Move On (unreleased at the time but now available on CD). All the tracks from the EPs in this series were later compiled on to a 2006 2CD set, which includes Frankie's performance on CD2. Patty's own cover of Blowin' In The Wind is on the 2013 "Two On One" CD release above right.
