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. There's no specific qualification for inclusion other than I have the item or it's been notified to me by a contributor as having a noteworthy Dylan connection. All candidates for inclusion will be assessed on their merits! By request I have included two sections of Dylan covers (Covers of Blowin' In The Wind and Miscellaneous Covers), but this is not intended to be a comprehensive section on Dylan Covers. The late Dave Plentus' excellent Dylan Cover Albums site is now kept alive on Expecting Rain by Karl-Erik Anderson here . The other Honourable Mentions pages are listed below.


Honourable Mentions (Dylan's Roots)

Honourable Mentions - Covers of Blowin' In The Wind

Honourable Mentions - Covers (Misc)

Honourable Mentions - Video

The new Dylan's Roots page includes songs by other artists that have been covered by Bob or are said to have influenced Bob, including all the songs he's played on his Theme Time Radio Hour programmes.

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!

1960s


Carolyn Hester - "Carolyn Hester" - mono vinyl album, Tradition Records TLP-1043 (USA), 1961:
These albums aren't included on the
Honourable Mentions - Women Sing Dylan page because they don't include Dylan compositions.


Tradition Records TLP-1043 (USA mono) - front (my copy, no Dylan)

Thanks to Tracy Zank for pointing out that the Carolyn Hester album listed in 1962 is in fact Carolyn's second self-titled album - the first (shown left) was released in 1961 on Tradition Records (TLP-1043) with a completely different tracklist including House Of The Risin' Sun and The Water Is Wide  - Bob did not play on this album. Thanks to Tim Dunn for the album! The sleeve notes are by "Stacey Williams" (Robert Shelton), who wrote the sleeve notes for Bob's first album under the same pseudonym. This 1961 album was released on CD with three bonus tracks as The Tradition Album by Road Goes On Forever on 1 Mar 2001, and then again with the original artwork as The Tradition Album by Hot Records on 29 Sep 2006, this time with just the original 13 tracks, but remastered.

Coral CRL 57143 (USA mono) - front picture from www.collectorsfrenzy.com (1957, no Dylan)

Thanks to Ian Woodward for pointing out that Carolyn's first album, also in mono only, was in fact Scarlet Ribbons from 1957 on the Coral label, produced in her home state of Texas by Norman Petty, producer of Buddy Holly and the Crickets. These two albums are together on CD1 of a 2CD set, Carolyn Hester Introduces Bob Dylan, from Jasmine Music in the UK, released on 12 Apr 2013. CD2 contains Carolyn's 1962 album plus Bob's first album and his first single (in mono). This release is presumably legal in the EU because of copyright expiry, but as it's not an official Columbia release, it is listed in Questionable Releases.


Jasmine Records JASCD 259 (UK mono/stereo, 2013) - front (my copy, includes Dylan)

Carolyn Hester also recorded Bob's non-album song Ye Playboys and Playgirls (R-0020, see 1964) for Dot Records in Aug/Sep 1965 on her live album Carolyn Hester At Town Hall Two (Dot DLP 25649 - stereo, Dot DLP 3649 - mono).

Master Classics Records (Europe, 2013) - MP3 version with 24 tracks from both Town Hall LPs

Thanks to Tim Dunn for information that this version has a new final verse: "Ringo just got married, now he'll never marry me; Never marry me, never marry me; Ringer just got married, now he'll never marry me, Not now and no other time". The liner notes by Carolyn include the credit: "For Bobby in hopes he won't object to the very last verse (it's about a friend of his, anyway!)." (Actually, most of her lyrics do not match the Dylan version in "Lyrics 1962-2001".) This album was also released in the UK as Dot Records DLP 3638 (mono), thanks to Ronald Born for scans of a UK test pressing in a plain white sleeve with details on a sheet pasted on the front. The song was also released as a single in the UK and on a French EP taken from the album.

In a coat he'd borrowed from James Dean
and voice that came from you and me

Atco 7567-90397-2 (Germany for Europe) - front scan by Jack from Canada
This 1999 CD is a re-release of the original 1970 album. The Dylan connection to this album is that the front features a photo of Bob Dylan. The feet shown hanging out of the car window in the picture are those of Bob! The photo was taken by Barry Feinstein in Sep 1963 and the Rolls Royce belonged to Albert Grossman.

Jack from Canada says: "There are, of course, many examples of Dylan pictured on an album cover, but these are of the various artists type, usually with a Dylan track (e.g. The All Time Greatest Rock Songs by various artists) or with a Dylan song/cover (e.g. Thank You by Duran Duran). This release (along with the Beatles' Sgt. Pepper) is, I believe, unique in that no Dylan track or song/cover is featured." The road trip taken by Barry and Bob in Albert's Rolls Royce from Denver to New York in Sep 1963 is described in the foreword to the book "Early Dylan" by Barry Feinstein, Daniel Kramer and Jim Marshall (Little, Brown & Co, 1999).

2000s


Martin Carthy - "The Carthy Chronicles" - 4CD boxed set, Free Reed Records FRQCD-60 (UK), Apr 2001:


Free Reed Records FRQCD-60 (UK) - picture from Free Reed Records web-site

The Winter 2000 issue of Dylan fanzine "The Bridge" reported Bob would be heard playing harmonica on Martin Carthy's version of The Lonesome Death Of Hattie Carroll, which now appears on the boxed set The Carthy Chronicles from Free Reed Records. I later heard from Neil Wayne of Free Reed Records that this would sadly not be the case (presumably they couldn't get permission to use the performance with Bob). However, the boxed set (pictured left from the Free Reed web-site) is still of great interest to Dylan fans. Martin Carthy championed the unknown Bob Dylan during his visit to England in late 1962/early 1963 and helped him to get him gigs at small folk clubs in the London area. The set booklet includes text about Bob and a photograph of Martin and Bob performing together at the Troubadour in London on 15 Jan 1963. And several of the songs will be familiar to Dylan fans...

For more information see the Free Reed web-page or contact Neil Wayne - the set can be ordered online from them, and is available at www.amazon.com and www.amazon.co.uk.


Al Kooper - "Rare & Well Done" 2CD set in digipak, Columbia/Legacy AC2K 62153 (USA), Sep 2001:


Columbia/Legacy AC2K 62153 (USA) - front of digipak (my copy)

Went To See The Gypsy - alternate take to the version released on New Morning
This take (now revealed to be Bobless!) is described by Al Kooper as "a conception I had for Dylan to sing over". Performers are Al Kooper (guitars/organ/vocals), P. P. Arnold (vocals), Tom Cosgrove (guitar), Stu Woods (bass) and Rick Marotta (drums). The only recording details given are "Columbia Studios, New York, 1970", but Michael Krogsgaard in his series of articles "Bob Dylan: The Recording Sessions" shows Cosgrove and Marotta present at the New Morning sessions only at an overdub session on 30 Jun 1970, so I assume this session is where this track comes from. This version of the song also appears on the French 2CD set Chroniques Volume 1, see 2005.

The Feb-Apr 2008 issues of the UK magazine "Record Collector" contain a series of three articles about Bob Dylan's Official Rarities by Evan Marshall, who generously credits this site for providing him with a considerable amount of information. Evan's articles "add value" by giving judgements on the quality of the rarities listed, which this site generally does not do.

The Jun 2011 issue of the UK music magazine "Uncut" contains an 18 page feature article celebrating Bob's 70th birthday, featuring a 1966 interview with Bob that was not included in the first edition of Robert Shelton's book "No Direction Home: The Life And Music Of Bob Dylan" in 1986, but has been restored in the 2011 edition revised by Elizabeth Thomson and Patrick Humphries. The magazine comes with four different covers and a CD which also has four different front inserts. The CD is called Happy Birthday Bob and contains twelve "birthday party songs" plus four Dylan covers, there is no Dylan contribution. Each CD is available in either a jewel case or a card sleeve, so there are actually eight different issues!

This new album from Dion DiMucci of Dion and The Belmonts fame enlists friends like Bruce Springsteen, Steven Van Zandt, Brian Setzer, Paul Simon, Jeff Beck, Billy Gibbons and Van Morrison. The album is being released on the newly launched Keeping the Blues Alive Records, a label co-founded by guitarist Joe Bonamassa, who also appears. The liner notes are by Bob, including: Dion knows how to sing, and he knows just the right way to craft these songs, these blues songs. He’s got some friends here to help him out, some true luminaries. But in the end, it’s Dion by himself alone, and that masterful voice of his that will keep you returning to share these Blues songs with him.” The 2LP edition includes a voucher to download an MP3 version.
