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 being worthy of inclusion. 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 and these pages are not intended to match or replace it. This page includes notable foreign language cover albums contributed by Dylan collectors. For covers of Blowin' In The Wind in foreign languages, see Honourable Mentions - Covers of Blowin' In The Wind. The other Honourable Mentions pages are listed below.

Hugues Aufray was one of the first artists to translate multiple Bob Dylan songs into a language other than English. In February 1964 an EP (Barclay, 70.618) included "N'y Pense Plus, Tout Est Bien" [Don't Think Twice, It's All Right]. There was also a single coupling this track with "Quatre Vents" [Four Strong Winds]. The second EP shown is from 1965 and contains "L'Homme Orchestre" [Mr. Tambourine Man]. Ronald Born has a test pressing of the EP dated "30 Sep 1965". This was also released as a single, Barclay 60617.

The next two EPs are from his 1965 album Aufray Chante Dylan and include:

Barclay 70.938 M - Cauchemar Psychomotor [Motorpsycho Nitemare]; Oxford Town; La Fille Du Nord [Girl Of The North Country]; Ce Que Je Veux Surtout [All I Really Want To Do].

Barclay 70.939 M - Le Jour Ou Le Bateau Viendra [When The Ship Comes In]; Les Temps Changent [The Times They Are A-Changin']; Dieu Est A Nos Cotes [With God On Our Side]; Corrina, Corrina.

The "Aufray Chante Dylan" EPs were also released in Portugal in 1966 (Barclay BEP 700 119/700 120). The 1966 Spanish EP (Barclay SBGE 83 193) is a compilation - it contains "La Fille Du Nord" and "Ce Que Je Veux Surtout" from the first EP together with "Le Jour Ou Le Bateau Viendra" and "Corrina, Corrina" from the second EP.

Also shown is a 1965 Warner Bros. songbook. Hugues Aufray also wrote the introduction for the catalogue of the Amadeo France album series "Original Folk Song Collection" included with Les Rois Du Folk Song [Kings Of Folk Song], the French release of the Vanguard album Newport Broadside (Topical Songs), see 1964.
