This section contains multiple pages listing by release date commercially-released Various Artist stereo compilation albums including all Promotional and Radio Station Albums 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. The chronological pages replace the previous split into commercial releases with LPs, CDs and albums with more than one Dylan track, exclusive Promotional releases and Radio Station Albums. These pages are still incomplete - more entries required. I have eliminated cross-references between individual pages and links to this section from other pages on the site will from now on link to this page only. Please refer to the decade links below for the right chronological page for the album you're looking for.
Unless they contain rare tracks, Radio Station Albums are all listed here: I haven't allocated R-numbers to slightly faded Dylan tracks or very short excerpts from Dylan album tracks that occur on radio station discs. Tracks on radio station discs are often faded or talked over. Because every occurrence is unique I don't give these R-numbers either.
Note the albums listed here only contain tracks from regular Dylan albums. Various Artists Compilations with Dylan performances that are not from his regular albums are listed on the appropriate Rarities page as well as being summarised here: Bob's Appearances on Compilations.
I suspect that the days of Various Artists Compilations on CD are over, killed off by streaming playlists, and vinyl collections will in future be the only format.

There must be hundreds of these albums from round the world! 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!
