There must be hundreds of these albums from round the world! This section is still incomplete. 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!

Revised 22 October, 2014.

This is a separate multi-year list by release date of commercially-released Various Artist stereo compilation albums released between 1962 and 1969 that have been referred to me but do not qualify for my Searching For A Gem list because they contain only Bob Dylan performances which are available on officially released Dylan albums. 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-only Various Artist compilation albums with Dylan tracks including radio station albums are now included here also.

Manuel García Jara says: "Compilations made in the 1960s by Columbia or CBS with Dylan contributions can be classified into three types: folk (until the mid 1960s, e.g. All Star Hootenanny, Folk Jamboree, etc.) , pop albums (mid 1960s, e.g. Disco Teen '65, Today's Sounds, etc.) and psychedelic/underground music (late 1960s, e.g. The Rock Machine Turns You On, That's Underground, etc.) Psychedelic from 1967 was the first precedent of a long series of albums with this latter concept of music (Fill Your Head With Rock, Underground 70s etc.)."

Unless they contain rare tracks, Radio Station Albums are all listed here: I haven't allocated R- numbers to slightly faded Dylan tracks or very short excerpts from Dylan album tracks that occur on radio station discs. Tracks on radio station discs are often faded or talked over. Because every occurrence is unique I don't give these R-numbers either.

To eliminate cross-references there are now no links to other pages in this list, please use the links at the top and bottom of the page.

Various Artists - "Zenith Presents... All Star Hootenanny" - stereo compilation vinyl LP, Columbia Special Products CSP 149 (USA), 1962:
Zenith was a manufacturer of audio equipment at the time, and sponsored this album. This is not the same album as the later Columbia All Star Hootenanny (CL 2122/CS 8922, USA, Nov 1964, see below and 1964), or the 1964 Nippon Columbia album YS 320, see below. There was also a mono version of this album CLP 149, listed in International Mono Releases (Various Artists Compilations).


CSP 149 (USA) - front sleeve scan by Hans Seegers featuring "Bobby Dylan"

Here Bob is represented by Freight Train Blues, Pretty Peggy-O and Corrina, Corrina, the regular album versions from Bob Dylan. The other artists are Pete Seeger, Orriel Smith and the Clancy Brothers with Tommy Makem.

Thanks to Gord Pugh and Hans Seegers for information and scans. Thanks also to Gord Pugh for scanning the sleeve notes. Relating to Bob they say: "Bob Dylan is a fast-rising young man who has crossed and re-crossed the country, learning songs and writing them himself. Possessor of a compelling vocal style, Bob is heard to especial advantage on Freight Train Blues, Pretty Peggy-O and Corrina, Corrina." Confusingly, Bob is named as "Bobby" Dylan on the front sleeve and on the label!

For a 1966 Zenith sponsored compilation album with a rarity, Zenith Salutes... The Teen Sound, see 1966. For a 1966 Zenith sponsored compilation album with two album tracks, Zenith Salutes... The Folk Singers, see below.

This stereo album is different from the 1962 US album above and the 1964 Japanese album below with the same name. It contains Bob playing harmonica for Carolyn Hester on Swing And Turn Jubilee from her self-titled Columbia album, see 1962. As this is a rarity, full details are in 1964.

There was also a mono version of the album, see here.

This album is a Limited Edition released by Columbia Special Products.

You'll hear Bob Dylan, the young man who is already a legend, in two of his own distinctive songs - All I Really Want to Do and On the Road Again. It's easy to see why this Minnesotan is the most creative and influential force in music today."

Various Artists - "All About American Folk Songs" - promo and commercial stereo compilation vinyl LPs, CBS YS-527-C (Japan), Dec 1965:


CBS YS-527-C (Japan) - front scan by Hans Seegers
This compilation album in the Columbia College Folk Series is very rare, and almost impossible to find as shown here with its original red/white obi with price ¥2,000. The obi is a paper band which wraps round the sleeve. Wil Gielen has provided a picture from the Internet of the album with an obi but is sure the obi shown is actually a colour copy, and not an original.

Bob's contribution is Blowin' In The Wind on Side 1 and Don't Think Twice, It's All Right on Side 2, both from The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan. The Brothers Four perform House Of The Rising Sun on Side 1, and a cover of Mr. Tambourine Man on Side 2. The commercial record has orange CBS labels.

CBS YS-527-C (Japan) - Side 1 scan by Hans Seegers (commercial release)


CBS YS-527-C (Japan) - Side 2 scan by Hans Seegers (commercial release)

The promo release has white labels with a stamped date "40 12". This means Dec 1965, as Wil Gielen explains: The white labels have a very small date (40 - 12) hand-stamped on each side - the “40” is the Japanese year "Showa 40" (40th year of the reign of the Emperor Showa) which corresponds to 1965 in the 'western' calendar.  The "12" on the label is for December.  It's interesting that even now Japan uses its own system for calendar years, and each ends when the Emperor dies, and starts again when the new Emperor is announced. The current Emperor was crowned in 1988 and so that was "year zero" for his era (the Heisei era), and now we are in year "Heisei 20".   This is used on newspapers, official documents, application forms, birthdays etc (but not on CD release dates) more often than our "Western" 2008 year. It's very confusing for non-Japanese, because you need also to know the era and the year to identify the correct year.

Various Artists - "Folk Song Collection Vols. I and II" - promo stereo compilation vinyl 2LP set, Nippon Columbia PH-3019~20 (Japan), 1966:


Nippon Columbia PH-3019~20 (Japan) - front of gatefold sleeve, scan by Manuel García Jara
This is a very rare 2LP set in a gatefold sleeve made for promotional purposes only and never released commercially. In the mid-1960s, CBS released a few albums with folk songs including Dylan tracks (All About American Folk Songs, This Is Folk Rock I & II, Folk Song De Luxe, etc. in Japan, all listed on this page. This 2LP set is a similar compilation. The gatefold sleeve looks like the usual Japanese inserts but it actually is a outer sleeve made of good cardboard. The outside has pictures of the artists and the tracklist in English, but the rest of the text on the outside, inner gatefold sleeve and record labels is in Japanese only, including the album title.

Nippon Columbia PH-3019~20 (Japan) - detail of inside of gatefold sleeve, scan by Manuel García Jara

This set includes three Dylan tracks: Blowin' In The Wind, Positively 4th Street and Can You Please Crawl Out Your Window? (Side 1, tracks 1-3) and also Mr. Tambourine Man and All I Really Want To Do (Side 2, tracks 4 and 5) covered by The Byrds. The records have white promo labels. I assume that this record plays stereo, as usual in Japan, but there is no Stereo logo on the sleeve all the labels. Two Dylan tracks were only released at the time as singles, I assume they are the regular versions, which means Can You Please Crawl Out Your Window? must be in mono, as only a mono version has been officially released, even in Japan.

However, the most noticeable part is that this set was published by Nippon Columbia and not by CBS even though it was released in 1966! (There is another compilation published by Nippon Columbia in Japan, All Star Hootenanny (see above), but it was made in 1964, before Sony took CBS in Japan. This release has the "Magic Note" logo on the record labels (as used by UK and Spanish Columbia), not the "Walking Eye" logo used by Columbia/CBS.

Various Artists - "Disco Teen '66" - limited edition stereo vinyl LP releases, Columbia Record Club DS 155 (USA)/Columbia Record Club DS 233 (Canada), 1966:


Columbia Record Club DS 155 (USA) - front scan by Manuel García Jara

R-0049 Positively 4th St - alternate stereo mix, longer than standard single release (4:12 as opposed to 3:51)

Carsten Baumann informs me that he's checked the version on this 1966 album (also on the 1965 Witmark tape, see 1965) against the version now included on the remastered Bob Dylan's Greatest Hits (US release), and they are the same. This would mean it replaces the single version which is now to be found on CD only on Biograph. The stereo version, R-0049, is therefore no longer a rarity. The mono version, R-0672, remains a rarity, and is still listed for 1965 and 1966. John Goodwin has a copy of this album with Side 2 labels on both sides. the record is however pressed correctly and does play Positively 4th Street on Side 1. There is also a cover of All I Really Want To Do by The Byrds on Side 1.

For the previous release in this series, Disco Teen '65, which contains Subterranean Homesick Blues, see above. For the mono release of this album, see International Mono Releases (Various Artists Compilations).

Columbia Record Club DS 233 (Canada) - front scan by Manuel García Jara
The Canadian stereo version is different from the US version! It has the catalogue number "Columbia DS 233" while the US version is "Columbia DS 155" and the artist list is also different. Both the US and Canadian albums have 12 tracks by 12 artists, but the US version includes The Dave Clark Five and The Yardbirds. Instead of these two UK bands, this Canadian album includes Gene Pitney and Donovan. The front of sleeve is almost identical to US album, apart from the catalogue number. It has "LITHO IN CANADA" on the sleeve spine. The rear sleeve is very different because the US release includes photos of all twelve artists, but on the Canadian album the pictures of artists not included have been removed and there are no images of the new artists, so the second row of photos has two photos missing at either end. While the US record has special Columbia Record Club labels, the Canadian record has regular Columbia Canada labels with the black "STEREO"/"360 Sound"/arrows logo and "PRINTED IN CAN." at the bottom.

Bob's contribution to this rare West German stereo compilation (also playable mono) released by German women's magazine "Constanze", is Most Likely You Go Your Way (And I'll Go Mine) on Side 1 and Just Like A Woman on Side 2, both from Blonde On Blonde. There are two releases, one with white CBS labels and the other with plain orange CBS labels. They both have the same sleeve. Dr. Hanns Peter Bushoff is sure the white label LP is not actually a promo. The title on the orange record labels is just The Best Of Folk And Protest. Neither of Bob's songs included could be said to fall into this category! The white label copy has matrix numbers: Side 1 - 509206A, Side 2 - 509206B. The orange label copy has completely different matrix numbers: Side 1 - 639819A, Side 2 - 639819B.

This album was sold in the USA for 99¢ with the purchase of another Columbia album. It included a 1967 "datebook" (calendar) with an "obi" that wraps around the right of the front sleeve. To find the album complete with the datebook is very rare! The May page has Bob Dylan's birthday on 24 May and illustrations of three Dylan albums at bottom left.

Bob's contribution is I Want You from Blonde On Blonde on Side 1. The rear sleeve has both mono and stereo catalogue numbers. The Canadian release has an almost identical sleeve except that "PRINTED IN U.S.A." is missing from the rear bottom right. The US record labels have the "STEREO"/"360 SOUND"/arrows logos in white, and on the Canadian labels these are in black, the design used in the USA from 1963 to 1965 (the first release of Bringing It All Back Home in the USA had this logo in black, but by the first release of Highway 61 Revisited Columbia USA had changed their labels to the white design). Canada did not change over to the white logo design until Self Portrait in 1970! The Canadian labels also have "PRINTED IN CAN.". On the record labels the album title is just The Best Of '66.


CBS TBS 1 (Philippines) - front scan by Manuel García Jara
This compilation had a very unexpected release in the Philippines! The album has an imported US Columbia sleeve although the record has orange CBS labels. The text layout on the record labels is exactly the same as the US and Canadian releases, so the album title is still just The Best Of '66.

RockMachineUKFront.JPG (30589 bytes)
CBS SPR 22 (UK) - front (my copy, mono sleeve)

This was the first "sampler" album to be produced by CBS that was sold commercially in the UK as a general release (previous releases like the ones above had been limited editions). It was extremely successful, both in its own right and in terms of generating sales for the featured albums, all of which were newly released at the time. The front has a fabulous Victorian-style illustration of a "rock machine" by Milton Glaser! (For Milton Glaser's famous 1967 Dylan poster see Part 1). Bob's contribution is I'll Be Your Baby Tonight from John Wesley Harding. Other artists included are Leonard Cohen, Simon & Garfunkel, The Byrds, Blood, Sweat and Tears featuring Al Kooper, and The Electric Flag featuring Mike Bloomfield.

The UK stereo release is housed in the mono PR 22 sleeve (although it has CBS stereo information in a text box at the bottom of the rear sleeve) with a white Stereo/arrows logo sticker. The UK rear sleeve has "GB" printed vertically at bottom right, as well as printer information from Ernest J. Day printed horizontally.

The generic CBS UK paper inner sleeve has a cut-out for the record label and has the theme "The Sound Of Entertainment". Current CBS albums are illustrated on the front, including the 1967 UK version of Bob Dylan's Greatest Hits, and all Bob's UK albums are listed on the back amongst albums from others. The record has orange CBS labels with the "STEREO" logo to the left of the centre CBS logo.

It has "GB" printed vertically on the rear sleeve at bottom right  in the same position as on the English rear sleeve, which must be a mistake as it also has the logo of the French printers J. Colombet, Paris XV. The record has orange CBS labels with the "STEREO/MONO" logo to the left of the centre CBS logo.

CBS SPR 23 (West Germany):


CBS SPR 23 (West Germany) - front scan by Hans Seegers

The West German album has on the rear sleeve the familiar words "The Rock Machine Turns You On" (not the same compilation as the UK, Dutch and French albums The Rock Machine Turns You On above). The West German records are on distinctive "psychedelic" multicoloured vinyl, but both records shown have orange CBS labels. The rear sleeve shows pictures of other contemporary CBS releases.

CBS XPR 23 (Italy) - front scan by Manuel García Jara
This is the Italian version of this album. It was released in 1969, as stated on the record labels and stamped on each side (22/4/69). The laminated front is the same as the West German album, also with the CBS logo hardly visible, and with the catalogue number looking as if it has been altered. The rear sleeve is in colour this time, has two folded-over flaps and twelve CBS albums are shown, including Highway 61 Revisited and John Wesley Harding. Again, the catalogue number on the rear sleeve looks as if it has been altered. The vinyl is also multicoloured but different from the two German albums shown above. The record was made in Italy has orange CBS labels.
