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 by Peter, Paul and Mary.

Because of the great length of the original Blowin' In The Wind covers page, it has been divided in three parts, as well as this page:


Blowin' In The Wind Covers 1963-65

Blowin' In The Wind Covers 1970s Onwards

For the main Honourable Mentions page, click the "Up" link, Honourable Mentions video items are now here. For details of the false rumour that Blowin' In The Wind was really written by Lorre Wyatt, see here.

1963


Peter, Paul and Mary - "Peter, Paul and Mary" - 7" mono singles and EPs, Warner Bros (various catalogue numbers) (Worldwide), Jun 1963 onwards:


Mary and Bob!
Mary Travers, who was married in the 1960s to Dylan photographer Barry Feinstein, sadly died on 16 Sep 2009 from leukaemia. The trio's cover of Blowin' In The Wind was released in the USA in Jun 1963 just after the song was released on The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan in May 1963. The success of this cover version contributed strongly to Bob's commercial breakthrough. Bob was present at these sessions (he's included in photos) and some say he may have played piano on the track, but this has never been substantiated.
Bob with Donovan and Mary, Newport Folk Festival, Jul 1965

US Releases, 1963-90:


Warner Bros S 1507 (USA, mono) - 7" promo EP front scan by
Manuel García Jara (1963)

The 7" mono EP (or "Little LP"), is a promo only release with six tracks from the album In The Wind, see below. The record comes in a generic Warner Bros sleeve inside the card sleeve reproducing the LP sleeve. The B-side of the single was Flora, a song covered by Bob in 1970 during the New Morning sessions as Lily Of The West (R-0097) and released on the 1973 deleted album Dylan, see 1973. This comes from their second LP, Movin', released in Mar 1963.

Also shown are mono and stereo singles in generic sleeves from 1968 to 1990.

Warner Bros 5368 (Canada) - 7" mono single A-side in generic sleeve, scan by Manuel García Jara (1963)
This 7" mono Canadian single in a generic Warner Bros sleeve is the direct equivalent of the USA 1963 single above. The record label design is completely different from that of the US and UK releases.

UK/Ireland Releases:


Warner Bros UK sheet music scan by Manuel García Jara
From 1960 until late 1965 Warner Bros records were made and distributed in the UK by Decca (part of EMI) and from 1965 until 1971 by Pye (part of Philips). (You can see "Decca" or "Pye" in the text at the bottom of generic sleeves of singles and on the rear sleeves of EPs.) It explains the difference in catalogue numbers and in the design of labels. In the 1970s Warner Bros records in the UK were released by Kinney Music, and have "K" catalogue numbers. Both EMI and Philips (later PolyGram) are now part of Universal. This version of Blowin' In The Wind got to #13 in the UK singles charts in 1963.

Warner Bros WB 104 (UK), Sep 1963; Warner Bros G-5368 (UK), 1966:

The single Blowin' In The Wind/Flora (Warner Bros WB 104) was released in the UK in Sep 1963 and reissued several times in 1964. There were at least five variants of this single in generic Warner Bros sleeves: one of these is a promotional record; the four commercial releases have a slight difference: three of them have "K / T" below the Warner logo, in slightly different positions, not present on the first variant label. It was re-released in 1966 with a new catalogue number and orange Warner Bros labels.

Warner Bros WEP 6114/ED 1449-1 (UK), Sep 1963 (three variants); Warner Bros WEP 600 (UK), 1966:

The UK 7" mono EP Warner Bros WEP 6114 was also released in Sep 1963 and reissued in 1964. These EPs have identical sleeves with white border and a laminated front. There were at least three record label variants of the 1963 release: the first release has the text "Recording (C) and first published 1962" on the right above the catalogue number (this date is incorrect because Peter, Paul and Mary did not not record Blowin' In The Wind until May 1963, although the other three tracks on the EP are from 1962). The other two record label variants have only "(C) & (P) 1962". These two variants have "M/T" below the Warner Bros logo on the left, in slightly different positions (a UK purchase tax code). As well as the logo of the UK copyright organisation "M.C.P.S." (Mechanical Copyright Protection Society), the record labels also have the logo of "NCB", the Nordisk Copyright Bureau, allowing them also to be sold in Scandinavia (1960s and 1970s Scandinavian Dylan singles also have this logo). Manuel García Jara has a copy of the first variant UK EP bought in Norway where the record comes in a generic Warner Bros. sleeve (mine, bought in Manchester in Sep 1963, is in a plain white inner sleeve). This sleeve has a barely readable record store stamp, but "LILLEHAMMER" can be made out.

This UK EP gives the US EP catalogue number as Warner Bros ED 1449-1 on both the front sleeve and the record labels, but I have not found this release yet, and Manuel García Jara says there was not a US EP (or "Little LP" as they were called there). The reference "ED 1449-1" is the same as that of the US release of Peter, Paul and Mary's self-titled debut album from 1962 (W 1449, mono and WS 1449, stereo), from which three of the tracks on the UK EP were taken. This album (UK mono catalogue number W 4064) does not include Blowin' In The Wind. The cover photo was used for several German EPs/singles that do include Blowin' In The Wind, see below.

Thanks to Bill Hester for information the UK EP was also sold in New Zealand in early 1964. Manuel García Jara confirms this with a scan of the rear sleeve of a copy with a sticker from John Court's department store, Auckland, New Zealand, bought in Jan 1964.

Ronald Born's UK 1966 copy has a new catalogue number, WEP 600 (because of the change in distribution from Decca to Pye), the front sleeve does not have a white border and the record has orange Warner Bros labels dated 1964. On the first 1966 labels the copyright text to the left of the centre hole has lines 2 and 4 indented, and there is a gap between these lines and the catalogue number. On the second 1966 labels, also dated 1964, the copyright text lines are all left aligned and there is no gap between these and the catalogue number.

Warner Bros EWEP 6114/ED 1449-1 (Ireland), 1963:


Warner Bros EWEP 6114 (Ireland) - 7"  mono EP front scan by Manuel García Jara
The Irish EP comes in an identical UK sleeve to that of my copy, but the record has a different catalogue number, EWEP 6114, and the text "PRESSED IN EIRE" on the record labels.

Related releases with no Dylan material: Warner Bros ED 1449-2 (Australia), 1963; Warner Bros WEP 6122/ED 1449-3 (UK, mono)/Warner Bros WSE 6122/ESD 1449-3 (UK, stereo), Oct 1963:


Warner Bros ED 1449-2 (Australia) - 7" mono EP front scan by Manuel García Jara
The original UK mono EP above with Blowin' In The Wind covered by Peter, Paul and Mary was released in Sep 1963 with catalogue number WEP 6114 and the sub-reference ED 1449-1. As explained above, "1449" is the catalogue number of the debut album of Peter, Paul and Mary, not from a US Peter, Paul and Mary EP. Two weeks later, in Oct 1963, a second mono EP titled Peter, Paul and Mary Vol. 2" was released in the UK with an identical sleeve but a different tracklist (without Dylan covers) and catalogue number WEP 6122. Surprisingly, this EP has the sub-reference ED 1449-3, so it implies that an intermediate EP with the sub-reference ED 1449-2 should have been released in the UK.

However, such an EP was never released in the UK, but an EP with the reference ED 1449-2 does exist! Amazingly, it was released in Australia as shown, but not in the UK.

Warner Bros WSE 6122/ESD 1449-3 (UK) - 7" stereo EP A-side scan by Manuel García Jara

There is another important mystery. There was also a UK stereo version of Peter, Paul & Mary Vol. 2! This extremely rare EP has the catalogue number WSE 6122 and the sub-reference ESD 1449-3. The sleeve is identical but the record has now golden labels, used by Warner for Stereo releases. Does a stereo version exist for the EP with Blowin' In The Wind, which would be WSE 6114? Manuel García Jara is still looking for this EP after over fifty years even though he has been told that WSE 6122 was made only for jukebox use and there never was a stereo version of WEP 6114.

Warner Bros K 16207 (UK) - 7" stereo EP A-side scan by Manuel García Jara (commercial release with solid centre)

This stereo EP was released in 1972 as part of the Warner Bros "4 FOURS" series. There was a promo release which came in the commercial sleeve, and two commercial releases, one with a push-out centre, and one with a solid centre. Ronald Born has a copy with the same front sleeve and the record with the push-out centre, but where the sleeve has "NL printed in Holland" printed vertically at bottom left. Ronald thinks the record was exported to Holland but the sleeve was printed locally. The cut-outs at the top of the UK and Dutch rear sleeves are differently shaped!

Warner Bros A 5368 (West Germany) - 7" mono single A-side scan by Ronald Born (1967-70 release)

There were four mono releases of the West German English language single, all with the same catalogue number, A 5368.

First release (1963): white front sleeve, rear sleeve dated "1963", "GEMA" and "BIEM" on record labels. On the variant record label the text to the right of the centre hole "M. Witmark... / FX 13153/ " is closer to the arrows than on the first copy. Also, the title track and composer are in a higher position.

Second release (1963 or 1964): black front sleeve, different rear sleeve and "GEMA" only on record labels. On the variant record label there is less space between the "GEMA" logo and "RECORDS".

Third release (1965): same sleeve design as the first release but different text on the rear, dated "1965", same record labels as the second release.

Fourth release (1967-70): again the same sleeve design as the first release, but this time the rear sleeve is the same as the front. The record has green Warner Bros/Seven Arts labels.

Warner Bros 16 112 (West Germany), 1978 (two variants), re-released 1982:


Warner Bros 16 112 (West Germany) - 7" stereo single front scan by Manuel García Jara (1978 release)
There were two German stereo reissues of the English version of Blowin' In The Wind by Peter, Paul and Mary, this time with Puff The Magic Dragon on the B-side. The first was released in 1978 as part of the "Original Oldies" series and comes with two record label variants (one has copyright text round the whole circumference; the other only round the lower half). Ronald Born's copy with second variant record labels has a different rear sleeve - "MORE ORIGINAL OLDIES" is in red instead of black, and the listed singles are different. It also has extra "WEA Musik GmbH" text at the bottom.

A second version of this single was released around 1982 with the same catalogue number as part of the "Golden Oldies" series with a different sleeve. However, but the record label is similar, if not identical, to the second variant of the 1978 release.

Warner Bros/Deutsche Schallplatten Club BW 8072 (West Germany for Norway) - 7" mono EP A-side scan by Manuel García Jara

In Sep 1963 Peter, Paul and Mary visited West Germany and recorded three songs in German at Warner Bros Studios in Berlin: Die Antwort Weiß Ganz Allein Der Wind [Only The Wind Knows The Answer (Blowin' In The Wind)] with German lyrics by Hans Bradtke, Pretty Mary and Puff (The Magic Dragon) - see the recording studio invoice below right. These new recordings appeared on three rare 7" releases: a German single; a German EP released by Warner Bros in conjunction with the Deutsche Schallplatten Club [German Record Club]; and a Dutch single. The Dutch single has a sleeve like Scandinavian singles of the time, a folded sheet with the same design on both sides. On the German Record Club EP only Flora is sung in English and the Blowin' In The Wind song title is listed incorrectly as "Die Antwort Weiß Nur Der Wind" on the front and rear of the sleeve but as "Die Antwort Weiß Ganz Allein Der Wind" on the record A-side. Manuel García Jara has a rare copy of this German Record Club EP sold in Norway. The record is the German Club EP without and differences from the one sold in Germany. The sleeve has the usual Scandinavian design, like a folded insert, and it has the same front as for the German release, but in a different colour. The rear sleeve is plain white except for some small text "trykk og lay-out: team trykk a.s" in Norwegian.

Dutch Release: Warner Bros WB 5368 (NL), 1963:

The record of the third release has a different label design, and on the rear sleeve there is a stamp with "Oct.64" (not shown), which may be the release date, although it still has "1963" printed on the front and back of the sleeve.

Warner Bros 16 286 (France), 1973:

This 1973 French 7" stereo single is #19 in reissues series "Série Chouchou [Favourites Series]". It has a fully laminated sleeve. The record now has the Warner Bros "Burbank Palm Trees" labels. Blowin' In The Wind is the A-side.

Norwegian Release: Warner Bros WB 5368 (Norway), 1963 (two releases), reissued 1966:


Warner Bros WB 5368 (Norway) - 7" mono single front scan by Manuel García Jara (first 1963 release)
As well as the UK EP sold in Scandinavian countries, Norway had its own release of this single. It was released in late 1963 with a picture sleeve and it is one of the rarest releases of this single. The first sleeve shown is made of fragile paper and it is a regular sleeve not a folded insert, unusual for Scandinavia. The front has a picture of Peter, Paul and Mary and the rear is plain white with a sticker with the text "FONA". The record has red Warner Bros labels with the text "MFD in Norway For Egil Monn Iversen" round the circumference. The A-side label is misprinted: although Blowin' In The Wind is the A-side, it has "5368-B" on the label. The second copy shown has a sleeve made of good quality card, with stronger printing. The rear has a jukebox strip, filled in by the original owner. The record itself is the same as before, but the centre has been pushed out.

This single was also sold in Denmark, and was reissued in Norway in 1966 without a picture sleeve and the record label has noticeable differences even though it still has the same misprint: the Blowin' In The Wind side is again "5368-B".

Peter Paul and Mary's version of Blowin' In The Wind is on the B-side of this very rare Italian single, released after a special TV programme dedicated to JFK, after he was killed. Where Have All The Flowers Gone was used as the theme song of this programme. The front says: "Motivo conduttore del programma TV dedicato a John Kennedy [Theme Song of TV Programme dedicated to John Kennedy]". Although it's correct on the rear sleeve, the name of the trio is incorrectly shown as "Peter, Paul & Mary Travers" on the record labels.

Spanish Releases: Warner Bros EP 68 (Spain), 1964 (two variants); Warner Bros HWB 327-11 (Spain), 1966:


Warner Bros EP 68 (Spain) - 7" mono EP front scan by Manuel García Jara (Jan 1964)

Thanks to Manuel García Jara for scans of two Peter Paul and Mary Spanish Warner Bros EPs that include this cover. The song title is translated on the 1964 release "EP 68" as "Soplando Al Viento [Blowin' To The Wind]" but on the 1966 release "HWB 327-11" it's "Quisiera Saber... [I Would Like To Know...]"! Warner Bros records were manufactured and distributed in Spain by RCA up to 1965, after which they were taken over by Hispavox, so the second EP comes from Hispavox, hence the "HWB" catalogue number.

Ronald Born's 1964 copy of "EP 68" has the same front sleeve and record labels as Manuel's copy but it has a tiny difference on the rear sleeve - on Manuel's copy the record sides are "Cara: 1" and "Cara: 2", but on Ronald's copy they are "Cara 1a:" and "Cara 2a:".

This mono EP, In The Wind, originally released in late 1963, includes Blowin' In The Wind on the A-side and Don't Think Twice, It's All Right on the B-side. There are three variants of this release with the same laminated front for all of them and two folded-over flaps on the rear. Only the first variant was released in 1963; the other two variants must have been released between 1964 and 1965.

Variant 1 was the first and the rarest: Rear sleeve - the text "High Fidelity" below the Warner logo is centred. Record labels - Side 1 has the Essex logo and the text "Warner Bros. Control"; Side 2 has both Essex and Allan's logos.

Variant 2: Rear sleeve same as Variant 1. Record labels - Sides 1 and 2 have only the Allan's logo.

Variant 3: Rear sleeve - the text "High Fidelity" below the Warner logo is now right aligned. record labels - both sides have only the Allan's logo but it is bigger than in previous variants, Side 1 has the tracklist on three lines, instead of four lines as Variants 1 and 2.

This EP was reissued in 1966. It has the same catalogue number, laminated front sleeve and two folded-over flaps on the rear, but the rear is different from the two 1963 variants. The text "High Fidelity" is again centred, and the copyright text at the bottom is different. The record now has orange Warner Bros labels.

For Warner Bros ED 1449-2, a 1963 mono EP released in Australia that did not have any Dylan covers, but is still of interest, see above.

Warner Bros EPW 203 (Australia), 1972:

Warner Bros WB 7101 (Australia), 1980s:


Warner Bros WB 7101 (Australia) - 7" stereo single front scan by Ronald Born
This 1980s 7" stereo single has two tracks taken from a different compilation album Their Greatest Hits, listed as Warner Bros BS 2552. This appears to be a mistake, Warner Bros BS 2552 was the 1970 compilation album 10 Years Together: The Best Of Peter, Paul & Mary. The record now has the replacement Warner Bros labels, plain beige with parallel lines, introduced in 1980, so definitely does not date from 1970. Blowin In The Wind is on the B-side. Manuel García Jara has a copy which comes in a generic WEA sleeve.

Russian Flexidisc Release, 1970:


Krugozor" No. 3, 1970 (Russia), front picture from Ronald Born
"Krugozor [Outlook]" was a monthly magazine in a 7" format from the former Soviet Union and 6 flexidiscs were included in each issue. In "Krugozor" No.3 from 1970 on the back of the third flexidisc (side 6) there is a Russian report about the American civil rights movement. This includes Martin Luther King speaking at the March on Washington 1963, Pete Seeger singing This Land Is Your Land (all excerpts only), Bob Dylan is mentioned, and at the end Peter, Paul and Mary sing Blowin' In The Wind interrupted by a Russian commentary. You don't need to cut out the flexidisc because there is a hole in the middle of the magazine so that you can play each side of each flexidisc together with the complete magazine on your turntable and keep the magazine intact. For another "Krugozor" flexidisc from 1973 with a cover of Blowin' In The Wind by Sonya Salvis, see below
