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.

This page is still incomplete - more international stereo releases of this album required.

The release from 1986 was the first generally available release of this album on CD in Japan. There is a red obi with black and white text and price ¥3,200 (the "32" in the catalogue number meant the price was ¥3,200). The rear of the obi has pictures of three Dylan albums. The rear insert has date "H-11-1" (1 Nov 1986).

There was an earlier release, CBS/Sony 35DP 99, from 1983, issued at the same time as the original Japanese CD release of Infidels, CBS/Sony 35DP 93. Scans of this release, which cost ¥3,500, required!

CBS/Sony 28DP 1030 (Japan) - front with first obi, scan by Keith Schweiger
The title of the third release from 1987 onwards is given as Bob Dylan's Greatest Hits Volume 1 on the obi. The album is part of the "CBS CD ROCK 100 FOLK ROCK SERIES". The front insert is a 32-page booklet. The rear insert has date "O-8-26" (26 Aug 1987).

This release occurs with two obis, both dark green and white with white and black text in the "CBS Rock CD 100 Folk Rock Series" . The first obi has a downward yellow and pink triangle on the front fold with price ¥2,800 (the "28" in the catalogue number meant the price was ¥2,800). The second obi has a reduced price of ¥2,627 (¥2,550 plus sales tax). The promo version shown came with the second obi and was packaged by CBS/Sony for TDK. This was given as a prize in a competition run by TDK, the text in the centre of the CD says "TDK CD double chance present - not for sale". The CD was won by sending in vouchers collected from TDK products (mainly compact cassettes and VHS tapes).

Thanks to Hans Seegers, Wil Gielen, Sheiji Murata and Keith Schweiger for information and scans.

"Bob Dylan's Greatest Hits" - remastered CD release, Sony Music MHCP 837 (Japan), Sep 2005:


Sony Music MHCP 837 (Japan) - front of sealed copy with top obi and "Carnegie Hall" sticker (my copy)
This 2005 remastered Japanese release comes in a card sleeve reproducing the LP sleeve with a top orange/white obi with price ¥1,890. There is a folded booklet containing Japanese language sleeve notes plus lyrics in English and Japanese - like the 1999 CD release, this gives the album title as Bob Dylan's Greatest Hits Vol. 1. There is also a reproduction of the original 1967 US poster. The CD itself reproduces an original stereo vinyl label and is in a clear sleeve.

The front sticker, different from the ones on the 2004 Japanese releases in card sleeves, advertises the free six-track CD Bob Dylan Live At Carnegie Hall 1963 (see 2005). In Japan this can only be obtained in exchange for five tokens, one from each of the following newly-released albums:

  • No Direction Home: The Soundtrack - The Bootleg Series Vol. 7
  • Bob Dylan
  • The Times They Are A-Changin'
  • Bob Dylan's Greatest Hits
  • Bob Dylan's Greatest Hits Vol. 2

Thanks to Michio Kinoshita for information about these albums. Thanks to Hans Seegers for scans of the promo release, which has a yellow sticker on the rear of the sleeve, and the text "SAMPLE - LOANED" on the CD itself.

Sony Music MHCP 1215 (Japan) -picture from eil.com
Thanks to Jean-Pol Hiernaux for finding this promo copy on eil.com. The white "Nice Price" obi has a date of "07.6.19" (19 Jun 2007), which is the withdrawal date, and a price of ¥1.785.

Sony Music SICP 20218 (Japan) - front of sealed copy, scan by Wil Gielen
This release is on a Blu-spec CD, an audio-only disc which was then intended to be Sony's new high quality audio format. The copy shown is still sealed, with a blue and white obi with price ¥2,500 (¥2,381 before tax). The release date is shown as "09-8-26" (26 Aug 2009), the original release date as "67-3-27" (27 Mar 1967) and the withdrawal date as "10-2-25" (25 Feb 2010). It's not actually a Blu-ray disc as it says on the sticker, but it is made using Blu-ray technology. Blu-spec has been now been replaced by Blu-spec CD2, see below.

Thanks to Wil Gielen for information and scans.

"Bob Dylan's Greatest Hits" - Blu-spec CD2 release in "Dylan '60s" set, Sony Music SICP 30479 (Japan), 26 Mar 2014:


Sony Music SICP 30479 (Japan) - front with obi, photo from eBay
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 have orange top obis similar to the 2004 Japanese release in card sleeves.

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

"Bob Dylan's Greatest Hits" - CD release, CBS CK 9463 (USA); CBS CK 9463 (USA for Canada); CBS VCK 9463 (Canada), 1980s:


CBS CK 9463 (USA) - front of "long box", scan by Hans Seegers
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. Unusually for the USA this release is from CBS and not Columbia. The fine print at the bottom of the rear insert still reads "Record manufactured in Japan by CBS/Sony Tokyo, Japan", although the CD in copies not in a long box is marked "Made in USA". The inside of the front insert is blank, plain white. The date must be late 1980s, but the only date shown anywhere is the original LP date of 1967.

Wil Gielen has copies of both the US CBS and Columbia releases imported into Japan with obis from the Shinseido record store chain.

The Canadian releases shown are the first and second CD releases in Canada - the first CD release was imported from the USA with the disc made in Japan, the second CD release had the inserts printed in Canada, the CD itself was imported from the USA.

CBS CK 9463 (USA) - front scan by Stuart Moore
Stuart Moore's copy has the same CBS inserts as David Plentus' copy without the photo credits, but the CD has a Columbia logo, not CBS. Like the others, the CD was manufactured in Japan even though it says "Now Made In The USA" on the rear insert.  All these CDs have to the right of the centre hole the inverted triangle used on Side 1 of LPs and cassettes from Biograph in 1985.

Thanks to Hans Seegers, David Plentus, Jack Guerreiro and Stuart Moore for information and scans.

"Bob Dylan's Greatest Hits" - BMG Record Club CD release, CBS CK 9463/D110966 (USA), 1987:


CBS CK 9463/D110966 (USA) - front scan by Manuel García Jara (BMG Record Club release)

This is the BMG Direct release, from the company that owned the BMG Service Music Club, based in Indianapolis, IN. Again unusually for the USA this release is from CBS and not Columbia. Like the US releases above, the CD was manufactured in Japan even though it says "Now Made In The USA" on the rear insert. It has two stickers on the rear insert and on the booklet with a new barcode and catalogue number covering the original barcodes. This new catalogue number (D110966) is also on the CD to the right of the centre hole. The CD also has the inverted triangle used on Side 1 of LPs and cassettes from Biograph in 1985.

Thanks to Manuel García Jara for information and scans.

"Bob Dylan's Greatest Hits" - remastered CD release, Columbia CK 65975 (USA/Canada), 1999:


Columbia CK 65975 (USA) - front with sticker, scan by David Plentus
This release reproduces the 1967 poster on the inside of the front insert. There is a yellow "BEST VALUE" sticker on the front of the US jewel case with information about the remastering. The Canadian release was made in Canada and also has much less text on the inside of the front insert.

The version of Positively 4th Street is timed at 4:12 and is a former rarity (R-0049, see Released Rarities).

Thanks to David Plentus and Moise Potié for information and scans.

Columbia CK 65975 (USA) - 2005 slipcase front scan by Hans Seegers (sealed copy)
This re-release of the 1999 remastered CD comes in a white slipcase in a "Best Value" series called "The Hits", which also includes artists such as Daryl Hall and John Oates.

The slipcase is from Sony BMG Music Entertainment, 2005, although the album is on Columbia as above.

Thanks to Tim Dunn for information and to Hans Seegers for further information and scans. The notes on the back of the slipcase call Bob a "national treasure" and point out that the songs are from his first seven albums.

"Bob Dylan's Greatest Hits" - remastered 24 carat gold CD release, Columbia/Audio Fidelity AFZ 140 (USA), 3 Jul 2012:


Columbia/Audio Fidelity AFZ 140 (USA) - picture from Steve Hoffman Forum web-site
Thanks to Éamonn Ó Catháin for news of a remastered Limited Numbered Edition 24 carat gold CD release of Bob Dylan's Greatest Hits from Steve Hoffman for Audio Fidelity. The run was limited to 5,000 numbered copies, of which mine is #1729. For more information, see . Each track has been individually remastered to reflect the different sound characteristics of the original stereo albums from which the tracks were selected. The version of Positively 4th Street is timed at 4:12 and is a former rarity (R-0049, see Released Rarities).

The CD comes in a standard jewel case in a slipcase. The front of the slipcase is cut away to show the gold CD. There is a front insert which is an eight page stapled booklet, reproducing the original Columbia US stereo record labels and the original Milton Glaser poster.

I understand that because of demand, 5,000 more copies are being produced, but these will not be numbered.

"Bob Dylan's Greatest Hits" - hybrid SA-CD release, Mobile Fidelity UDSACD2120-2 (USA), 2016:


Mobile Fidelity UDSACD2120-2 (USA) - front picture from Mobile Fidelity web-site (2016 SA-CD release)
Thanks to Adam S for information about this hybrid SA-CD, released by Mobile Fidelity under licence from Columbia in 2016 as a limited numbered edition. This album is in stereo, not 5.1 surround sound, and was not one of the 15 Dylan titles released on hybrid SA-CD by Columbia in 2003. There was also a 2015 180gm heavyweight vinyl version, on two LPs playing at 45 rpm.

"Bob Dylan's Greatest Hits" - CD releases: Columbia/CBS VCK-9463/CCK 9463 (Canada), 1989; Columbia House Record Club CCK 9463/507665T (Canada), 1989:
These releases were made in Canada, unlike the first two Canadian releases above.


CBS (V)CK 9463 (Canada) - front scan by Manuel García Jara
The "V" prefix in the Canadian catalogue number indicates the price code. This 1989 release is unusual in that, while the inserts show the catalogue number as Columbia VCK-9463, the CD itself has a CBS logo and has a catalogue number of CCK 9463. The CD was manufactured in the USA, as there was at that time no Columbia CD pressing plant in Canada, which makes the fact that it has the "CBS" logo unusual.

The Columbia House Record Club edition has a secondary catalogue number of "507665T" on the spines of the rear insert as well as Columbia House information on the rear insert and the CD itself. The Columbia House rear insert also has a barcode. Manuel García Jara's copy has the same inserts with Columbia VCK-9463, but the CD is CBS CK 9463, with the text "MADE AT SMC" (Sony Music Canada) to the right of the centre hole.

Thanks to Jack Guerreiro and Manuel García Jara for information and scans.

This Columbia Argentina 2007 album with a new title is actually the 1967 US compilation Bob Dylan's Greatest Hits. The same flickr collection includes pictures of a Miles Davis CD with the same title, actually his 1957 album Miles Ahead. Neal Cassady (not Cassidy) was a noted beatnik and friend of Jack Kerouac and Allen Ginsberg.

"Bob Dylan's Greatest Hits" - CD releases, CBS/Sony 42-450882-11 (Spain), 1980s; CBS/Sony 463088 2 (Spain), 1989:


CBS/Sony 42-450882-11 (Spain) - front scan by Manuel García Jara (1980s release)

The 1980s release is the fourth disc (Salvat 4) of a series called "Historia del Rock" released by Editorial Salvat. It is intriguing because it again has the UK front sleeve (without tracklist), see International Albums (Dylan-only Compilations), but the US track list. It was possibly manufactured in Holland. Thanks to Manfred Endtner for details of a CBS/Sony release of this album made in Holland for the Spanish market, again with this catalogue number. This would appear to be a re-release of the Dutch CBS 450882 2 above, as the sleeve and tracklist are the same, only the CD design is different.

The 1989 Spanish special release is part of a series called Cantautores [Singer-Songwriters] from Ediciones del Prado, Spain, and again uses the UK sleeve. For the corresponding 1989 LP release, see above. For a release of The Times They A-Changin' in this series, see International Albums (Regular).

"Bob Dylan's Greatest Hits" - CD re-release, Columbia COL 476554 2 (France); CBS/Sony 463088 2 (Spain), 1994:


Columbia COL 476554 2 (France) - slipcase front scan by Keith Schweiger
Two of these releases are in a card slipcase with title - Best Of - Bob Dylan, (France) and - El Arte De - Bob Dylan (Spain). They have the UK front sleeve (without the tracklist). The catalogue number on the French slipcase is Columbia COL 467554 2.

The second copy of the Spanish release comes without the slipcase. All three rear inserts and the CDs themselves have the US tracklist and catalogue number Columbia 463088 2 (as the Dutch and Spanish CBS releases above). The Spanish CDs are identical with the 1989 release above. All were made in Austria.

Thanks to Keith Schweiger for information and scans.


"Greatest Hits" - digitally remastered 30th Anniversary CD re-release, Columbia 460907 9 (UK)/ CBS/Sony 460907 9 (Spain), 1997:


Columbia 460907 9 (UK) - front of jewel case with sticker (my copy)

Again, the UK CD version of this album, also sold in Spain, has a different sleeve and a different tracklist with twelve songs instead of ten. The album is therefore listed in International Albums (Dylan-only Compilations), but full details are here.

Thanks to Michael Smith for information and scan.

Columbia COL 487382-2 (France) - front sleeve of book, scan by Artur Jarosinski

The CD comes in a 48 page book (in French by Jean-William Thoury) containing several interesting photographs. It's intriguing because like other European Greatest Hits above on this page it has the UK front sleeve but the shorter US track listing.
