This is a separate multi-year list by release date of commercially-released Various Artist stereo compilation albums released in 2023 that have been referred to me but do not qualify for my Searching For A Gem list because they contain only Bob Dylan performances which are available on officially released Dylan albums. Nevertheless, their interest value or scarcity means they're worth listing here - as far as I know some are not included on any other Internet site. Promo-only Various Artist compilation albums with Dylan tracks are now included in this list. Other International Albums and Compilations 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!

I suspect that the days of Various Artists Compilations are over, killed off by streaming playlists, and future releases will be few and far between. This page covering 2023 and 2024 will probably be the last yearly page in this list.

Christmas Compilations

Bob's album Christmas In The Heart appeared in 2009, and tracks from it have been selected for Christmas compilations ever since!

Compilations with Out of Copyright Tracks

Sony let the copyright to the 1962 releases of Bob Dylan and Bob's first single Mixed Up Confusion expire in 2012. This has led to many budget record labels releasing unauthorised editions of Bob Dylan or including tracks from the album on compilations without authorisation. These are now listed separately from the other Various Artists Compilations. Sony has of course rectified this situation by renewing the copyrights of the albums from The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan onwards, and with the limited edition 50th Anniversary Collection releases from 1962 onwards.
