This page is part of a list of original releases by release date of international commercially-released regular stereo Dylan albums. They do not contain rarities or obscurities and are not eligible for the Searching For A Gem list. 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 releases of regular albums are now listed here and no longer in the former yearly Promo sections.

"Highway 61 Revisited" - CD release in "LP-Style" packaging, Sony Records SRCS 7904 (Japan), 21 Dec 1995:

H61RJpnFront.jpg (31416 bytes)
Sony Records SRCS 7904 (Japan) - front with obi, picture found by Rob Cole
This Super Bit Mapped release has the dates "95-12-21" and "97.12.20" on the obi, which has a price of ¥2,000. The later date is the "sell by" date, after which unsold copies of this release will be withdrawn. Note this Japanese release has a catalogue number of SRCS 7904, and the next one has a number of SRCS 9074 - these are correct. This album is housed in a card sleeve with an obi, and booklet giving the lyrics of the songs in Japanese. The obi has a price of ¥2,000.

Thanks to Manfred Endtner and Rob Cole for information and scans.

"Highway 61 Revisited" - commercial and promo fourth CD releases, Sony Records SRCS 9074 (Japan), 21 Oct 1996:


Sony Records SRCS 9074 (Japan) - front with obi, scan by Hans Seegers
Thanks to Éamonn Ó Catháin for information and scans of this item in the "Super 1600 Nice Price" series, which is housed in a regular jewel case with an obi, and booklet giving the lyrics of the songs in Japanese. The obi has a date of "96-10-21" and price of ¥1,600. It also has a date of "65-9-1" which must be the original Japanese release date. Hans Seeger's copy has a "sell by" date of "98.10.20" at the bottom right of the obi, which has been covered by red tape on Éamonn Ó Catháin's copy! I can only assume the second copy was sold after the intended withdrawal date. The promo release has a sticker on the rear insert and a stamp with "SAMPLE" on the CD itself.

Thanks to Hans Seegers for further information and scans.

"Highway 61 Revisited" - CD releases, Columbia CK 9189 (USA), 1980s, re-released mid-1990s:


Columbia CK 9189 (USA) - front of "long box", scan by Hans Seegers

This release was on sale in the USA until replaced by the hybrid SA-CD edition in 2003 (see below). The first CD release of the album in the USA came in the "long box" shown. Although it says "Now Made In The U.S.A." on the rear, the disc was made in Japan as stated in the bottom text. It has minimal packaging - the front insert is a single folded card with the liner notes on the inside. Jim Siddy has a copy where the rear insert still states the disc was made in Japan as shown, but was actually made in the USA. It has the upside-down triangle logo to the right of the centre hole, introduced on CDs, cassettes and records in the USA with Biograph in 1985.

Wil Gielen has two copies of the US release with different discs imported into Japan with obis from the Shinseido record store chain -scans required.

"Highway 61 Revisited" - gold CD release, Columbia/DCC GZS-1021 (USA/Canada), 2 Jun 1992:


Columbia/DCC GZS-1021 (USA) - front of slipcase scan by Gil Lamont
This release was remastered by Steve Hoffman from the original 1965 master tapes and released by DCC under licence from Columbia. It was generally accepted to be the definitive version of the album on CD, if not on all formats, until the hybrid SA-CD/CD version was released (see below). Although it's out of print, it can still be purchased online from retailers such as amazon.com. The CD itself is in a standard jewel case inside a black/gold slipcase.

Juergen Flicker has what looks like an earlier copy than Gil Lamont's with a different rear insert and CD. The insert has the barcode in a different location, "Disc manufactured in Japan" and a different Californian address for DCC, the gold CD has "Made in Japan" to the left of the centre hole. Both variants have Bob Johnston's name misspelled as "Bob Johnson"on the rear insert and the gold CD itself! This copy did not have a slipcase. Wil Gielen has a copy of the US gold release imported into Japan with an obi from the Yukimu Corporation record store chain. This copy has a slipcase but is otherwise identical to Juergen Flicker's with the disc made in Japan and the first DCC address. The slipcase was printed in Canada. This copy has a black and gold obi with price ¥4,200 (excluding tax).

Thanks to Gil Lamont, Juergen Flicker and Wil Gielen for information and scans.

The rear insert has no price code but the CD has the text "MADE AT SMC" ("SMC" = Sony Music Canada) to the right of the centre hole not present on the CD of Jack's copy. Moise Potié's mid-1990s Canadian copy has a price code stamp on the rear insert, but the CD is identical to Jack's.

Thanks to Ulf Gyllenspetz for information and photos of the Austrian release. Thanks to Hans Seegers and John Flood-Paddock for information and scans of the French release.

This CD-R for radio play only comes in a clear plastic wallet with a single-sided paper insert dated "5/28/2003". I assume because it was sent to radio stations the CD-R has only the CD layer of the hybrid SA-CD release below.

This release is housed in a two-fold digipak and contains both a CD version and an SA-CD stereo version. The inside of the digipak has two unpublished pictures of Bob from 1965. The sound of this release is much brighter and harder than that of the 1992 DCC gold CD mix by Steve Hoffman (see above) - for a detailed description, see Roger Ford's "Electric Dylan" web-site .

There is an eight page booklet with the original sleeve notes and more unpublished pictures of Bob from 1965. The SA-CD design reproduces the Columbia US "360 SOUND" stereo vinyl label used in 1965. The booklet for the Canadian releases has been printed in Canada. This release also has the sticker shown for The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan on the outside of the shrink-wrap.

The copies shown are still sealed, with a blue and white obi with price ¥2,500 (¥2,381 before tax). The release date is shown as "08-12-24" (24 Dec 2008), the original release date as "65-8-30" (30 Aug 1965) and the withdrawal date as "09-6-23" (23 Jun 2009). It's not actually a Blu-ray disc as it says on the sticker, but it is made using Blu-ray technology. Two sealed copies are shown, one with a numbered promo sticker on the rear of the obi.

Éamonn Ó Catháin said (14 Mar 2009): "I just received my first ever Blu-Spec CD, Highway 61Revisited. The sound is very good, as good as it can get from a CD (except the Hoffman DCC). I A/B'd it with my original Japanese CD and the sound from the new one leapt from the speakers, making the other one sound lifeless in comparison. The bass work on It Takes A Lot T o Laugh, It Takes A Train To Cry is outstanding and incredibly detailed. Instruments seem much better placed and in some cases the voice appears more centred than hitherto. I found Desolation Row to be a revelation, very engaging, a real performance."

*The distinction between “myth” and “legend” made in English isn’t made in other European languages – they’re both types of traditional stories, but basically a “myth” is a story that was never actually true, whereas a “legend” is a story that is based on true events or people. This means an “urban legend” should actually be called an “urban myth”, while Bob’s certainly a legend and definitely not a myth!

This massive set is the latest in a series of "Complete Columbia Album Collections" featuring artists such as Miles Davis, Charlie Mingus, Duke Ellington, Dave Brubeck and even Blue Oyster Cult. The CD version of the set includes 41 Dylan albums in card sleeves, 14 of which have been remastered for this project, plus a 2CD set of previously released non-album tracks entitled Side Tracks. The albums exclude all compilations and The Bootleg Series sets, but do include the deleted 1973 Dylan album, see 1973, and the extra 2CD set Side Tracks includes one side of the 1971 single George Jackson (Acoustic version), R-0085, see 1971. The set is therefore listed in 2013. The set also includes a hard cover book with extensive new liner notes and previously unseen photos.

All the CDs come in card sleeves. The European sleeves are made of thicker card than the US sleeves, but they are otherwise identical, so are not shown. The catalogue number on the sleeve is "88691924312JK6" plus "DISC 6". The CDs are different in detail, the US Highway 61 Revisited CD has catalogue number "88691924312D6", whereas the European CD has catalogue number "88691924312-06". The European CD was made in the EU (probably Austria). The US and European copyright details are printed at the bottom of the Bob Dylan CDs, and round the circumference for The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan onwards, so I haven't shown them for the later CDs.

For more details of the set, see International Album Releases (Multi-Packs) 2010s.

Thanks to Sonny Boy McFitzson for news that The Complete Album Collection will be released in Japan in four decade-related parts, with the intention to release them all in 2014. The first part, called Dylan '60s, will be released by Sony Music Japan on 26 Mar 2014. The Blu-Spec CD2 specification CDs come in card sleeves with printed inner sleeves and "SONY MUSIC" instead of "COLUMBIA" on the discs, which are numbered SICP 30471 to SICP 30481 (Bob Dylan's Greatest Hits, not included in the US and European sets, is included here as SICP 30479). Side Tracks, to be released at the same time, is SICP 30519-20. All the sleeves will have orange top obis similar to the 2004 Japanese release in card sleeves. The 2013 remastered Highway 61 Revisited will be SICP 30476 - more details will be added when available. It will almost certainly be the same as the 2013 Japanese Blu-spec CD2 release, Sony Music SICP 30027, see above.

"The Bootleg Series Vol. 12 - Bob Dylan 1965-1966 The Cutting Edge Collector's Edition" - 18CD set, Columbia/Legacy (catalogue number?) (USA), 6 Nov 2015:

This 18CD set includes all the studio takes recorded by Bob in 1965 and 1966 including all the previously released tracks of this album. Ben Rollins says in the book with the 18CD set: "released masters have been remixed in order to fit the sound of the way these alternate takes are presented... raw, immediate, unvarnished, unpolished". The remastered stereo versions of the album tracks for Highway 61 Revisited occur on the 18CD set as follows:

Like A Rolling Stone (CD4, track 4); Tombstone Blues (CD5, track 11); It Takes A Lot To Laugh, It Takes A Train To Cry (CD5, track 15); From A Buick Six (CD6, track 5); Ballad Of A Thin Man (CD7, track 19); Queen Jane Approximately (CD7, track 16); Highway 61 Revisited (CD6, track 29); Just Like Tom Thumb’s Blues (CD7, track 9); Desolation Row (CD8, track 11).

Thanks to T J Young for information.
