Bob Dylan's Officially Released Rarities and Obscurities

All the songs listed in the Official Rarities section are cross-referenced by song title in these alphabetical pages.
A-E F-J K-O P-S T-Z


As can be seen, which song was the A- or B-side of this single depended upon the country!

This page contains all 1966 7" singles/EPs with One Of Must Know (Sooner Or Later). It has been separated from 1966 because of the length of that page. "Blonde On Blonde" album releases with rarities and the major 1966 Dylan 7" singles/EPs with rarities are now listed here:

Home ] Up ] 1966 Blonde On Blonde Rarities ] 1966 Can You Please Crawl Out Your Window? ] 1966 I Want You ] 1966 Just Like A Woman ] 1966 Leopard-Skin Pill-Box Hat ] [ 1966 One Of Us Must Know ] 1966 Rainy Day Women ]

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!

"One Of Us Must Know (Sooner Or Later)"/"Queen Jane Approximately" - mono 7" promo and commercial singles, Columbia (USA/Canada), 14 Feb 1966:
This single came out well before the release of the Blonde On Blonde album! Which song was the A- or B-side of this single depended upon the country, but One Of Us Must Know (Sooner Or Later) was a previously unknown song, and Queen Jane Approximately from the 1965 mono Highway 61 Revisited album would already have been known to fans.

Columbia acetates (USA):

Thanks for Gerd Rundel for finding three acetates of this song for sale on eBay in Oct 2016. They come in buff sleeves with writing in grease pencil in the centres. All have "CO 89216" written on the sleeves at top left and "Bob Johnston" at top right.

The other side of this single was Queen Jane Approximately from the mono Highway 61 Revisited album. This has matrix number JZSP-113095 and was the A-side in several countries. (Normally the lower matrix number is the A-side, and Queen Jane Approximately was JZSP-113095 while One Of Us Must Know (Sooner Or Later) was JZSP-113096.

The 18CD Collector's Edition of The Bootleg Series Vol. 12 - Bob Dylan 1965-1966 The Cutting Edge includes nine of the mono 7" singles released in 1965 and 1966 with new picture sleeves and a "leopard-skin" spindle with which to play the singles. Columbia 4-43541 from Feb 1966 is included as Columbia/Legacy 88875124402-(SV)5 with the US commercial single labels. The front is from the Japanese single release CBS LL-919-C below, the rear is a curious hybrid of Japanese and German single rear sleeves.

Various Artists - "Philco Invites You To A Disc-A Go-Go Vol. 1"- 7" mono singles boxed set, Columbia Special Products CSP 120-1302 (USA), 1966:

DiscAGoGo1.jpg (38026 bytes)
Columbia Special Products CSP 120-1302 (USA) - front of box scan by Hans Seegers - pink text ("VOLUME I")

There are at least three releases of this box containing five current Columbia 7" singles: the second release shown here has the same title as this with catalogue number CSP 120-1325, with orange text, not pink as here, with a different Dylan single, I Want You/Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues (live), listed here. Manuel García Jara points out that the single selection in these boxes was completely random, so there is no point in buying one unless you know it contains a Dylan single!

As Blonde On Blonde was released on 2CDs as part of the Oct 2010 9CD release The Original Mono Recordings, R-0050 is no longer a rarity.

This box with pink text has Columbia 4-43541, One Of Us Must Know (Sooner Or Later) c/w Queen Jane Approximately. Hans Seegers' box also contains singles by The Creatures and Little Jimmy Dickens, but two of the five singles are missing. The remaining singles all have "PHILCO" stamped on their labels. Thanks to Gerd Rundel for finding the box on eBay illustrated with different singles:

Columbia 4-43541  Bob Dylan    Queen Jane Approximately/One Of Us Must Know (Sooner or Later)
Columbia 4-43480  The Creatures  Turn Off The Light/It Must Be Love
Columbia 4-43519  Andy Williams  Bye Bye Blues/You’re Gonna Hear From Me
Epic 5-9894           Bobby Vinton   Tears/Go Away Pain
Epic 5-9876           Mike Douglas   The Men In My Little Girl’s Life/Stranger On The Shore

Stefan Haras has a copy where the box has pink text and the same catalogue number CSP 120-1302, but a different title, "VOLUME II" instead of VOLUME I". It has the same five singles as "VOLUME I".

 

Hans Seegers has another copy of the box with pink text with a third Dylan 7" single, Can You Please Crawl Out Your Window? c/w Highway 61 Revisited, see here.

Thanks to Hans Seegers, Michael Grasberger, Gerd Rundel, Stefan Haras and Manuel García Jara for information and pictures.

This is definitely the A-side of the UK release! The other side of this single was also Queen Jane Approximately from the mono Highway 61 Revisited album. Anton Wennbom's commercial orange label copy has a push-out centre, but Manuel's copy has a solid centre.

The UK single had no picture sleeve.

Thanks to Hans Seegers, Anton Wennbom and Manuel García Jara for information and scans.


"Queen Jane Approximately"/"One Of Us Must Know (Sooner Or Later)"- mono 7" singles, CBS 2053 (NL), May 1966:
This date may be wrong, because the later Dutch single
CBS 2307, Rainy Day Women #12 & 35/Pledging My Time was definitely released in May 1966 (it entered the Dutch charts on 21 May 1966). Tom Willems says the book "Hypnotist Collectors" by Jean-Louis Dréau and Robert Schlockoff (Média Presse, France, 1989) gives the release date of CBS 2053 as 8 Jul 1966. CBS 2053 did not enter the Dutch charts, so they're no help. Tom says another source gives the Dutch release date as after 12 Aug 1966, and definitely after CBS 2307!

QJA7NLFront.jpg (28303 bytes)
CBS 2053 (NL) - front scan by Hans Seegers (both variants)

The Dutch single had a picture sleeve, but the A- and B-sides were reversed, so that Queen Jane Approximately was the A-side! This was the first Dutch single to have a sleeve with a different rear showing pictures of contemporary CBS Holland singles. "SUCCESS" on the rear sleeve is misspelled "SUCCES". The Dutch single has two label variations, the first shows the playing speed as "45 rpm" and the second as "45 RPM", placed slightly differently.

Information from Hans Seegers: "Until 1973 all Scandinavian releases were pressed at the PolyGram pressing plant in Oslo, but up to 1968 the CBS companies in Norway, Denmark and Sweden printed their own picture sleeves. The labels of these Scandinavian singles are therefore completely identical, and all have 710 in the matrix number."

"One Of Us Must Know (Sooner Or Later)"/"Queen Jane Approximately"- mono 7" singles, CBS BA-221274 (Australia), May 1966:

CBS BA-221274 (Australia) - A-side scan by Manuel García Jara (R-0050, variant 2)


CBS BA-221274 (Australia) - B-side scan by Manuel García Jara (variant 2)

These singles had no picture sleeve. The length of the A-side is shown as 4:55. To the right of the centre hole the A-side has "CONTROL" while the B-side has the Allan's logo.

Manuel García Jara has a copy of the single where there is a narrower gap between the central CBS logo and the song titles, especially on the B-side. The Allan's logo on the B-side is equidistant between the catalogue number and the matrix number - on the B-side of Hans' copy it is lower.

"One Of Us Must Know (Sooner Or Later)"/"Queen Jane Approximately"- mono 7" singles, CBS SSC.654 (South Africa/Rhodesia), May 1966:
Scans of the South African release required! It does not have the distinctive triangular centre of the Rhodesian single.

The first Rhodesian release illustrated came in the same "CBS Seven Single" sleeve as used in South Africa. Amazingly, it belonged to a woman called Rosemary Burgoyne, whom I knew when she and her husband lived in Didsbury in Manchester in the late 1960s! They subsequently moved to South Africa, where she still lives, although her husband has now died. The second Rhodesian single comes in a unique yellow/brown "Seven Single" sleeve with text in English and Afrikaans.

"One Of Us Must Know (Sooner Or Later)"/"Queen Jane Approximately"- mono 7" promo and commercial singles, CBS LL-919-C (Japan), 1 Jun 1966:

The other side of this single was Queen Jane Approximately from the mono Highway 61 Revisited album (4:55). The promo release has white CBS labels with the date "'66-6-1" (1 Jun 1966). The commercial release has orange CBS labels. There was a four-page insert inside the generic sleeve with release-specific artwork. The promo release came in the green Columbia sleeve (the record itself is "CBS").

Various Artists - "This Is Folk Rock Vol. 2" - stereo vinyl LP, CBS YS-665-C (Japan), Jul 1966:
Despite the fact that Bob always rejected claims he invented or ever played "folk rock", CBS insisted in sticking that label on him! For the first album in the This Is Folk Rock series, see International Compilations: Various Artist Albums 1962-69.

FolkRockJpn2Front.jpg (29158 bytes)
CBS YS-665-C (Japan) - front scan by Hans Seegers
Side 1 had a rarity:

R-0051 Rainy Day Women #12 & 35 - single edit, 2:26 (stereo)

Side 2 had One Of Must Know (Sooner Or Later) but it was the regular stereo album version, not the edited version (R-0380, 3:07) or the unfaded version (R-0050, 4:49) - for both of these see above. I also misreported that Side 2 of this album had the stereo version of Can You Please Crawl Out Your Window? - this is now confirmed to be the "standard" mono version, as found on Biograph (1985, remastered CD release 1997) and the 2000/2001 Essential Bob Dylan/Ultimate Bob Dylan compilations. The only occurrence of the stereo version is on a CBS stereo acetate, see 1965. The superb stereo version is in circulation amongst collectors on several bootleg albums and should be released by Columbia. (The CBS Spanish 7" EP and singles released in 1972 are now proved to have the track in mispressed mono, not stereo.)

The other tracks on the album are from the Byrds, Simon & Garfunkel, Chad & Jill Stuart and Chad & Jeremy.
