Audio: Mono 7" Singles & EPs: 1969 - I Threw It All Away

This page contains promotional and commercial releases of mono 7" singles and EPs with I Threw It All Away for 1969. Although Bob's original mono albums from Bob Dylan to John Wesley Harding were released on CD as The Original Mono Recordings in Oct 2010, the mono release of Nashville Skyline was a reduction from stereo so was not included. It is currently no longer possible to buy mono versions of these album tracks. Mono LPs have their own pages, see Mono Album Releases. Because of the length of the 1969 Mono Singles page, the other major 1969 singles are now here:

Home ] Up ] Mono 7" Singles 1969 - Lay, Lady, Lay ] [ Mono 7" Singles 1969 - I Threw It All Away ] Mono 7" Singles 1969 - Tonight I'll Be Staying Here With You ]

For 1969 Dylan mono 7" singles and EPs with rarities see 1969. For illustrations of all the generic 7" single sleeves used by Bob's record companies from the 1960s onwards, see the 7" Single Sleeves page. (A single has much less value to a collector if it doesn't have its correct original sleeve.)

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!

"I Threw It All Away"/"Drifter's Escape" - 7" mono promo and commercial singles, Columbia 4-44826 (USA/Canada), May 1969:
The A-side of all these singles could have been a reduction from stereo, since no mono mix was actually created for Nashville Skyline - see Mono Album Releases. However, Mark Easter informs me that Columbia mixed tracks from stereo-only albums in mono specially for singles up to 1970, so this track could be exclusive to these 7" single releases and therefore a rarity.

The US commercial single was pressed twice, first with matrix number "JZSP 139975" (below the catalogue number to the right of the centre hole), and then with matrix number "ZSP 139975" - see the detailed scans below.

"Lay, Lady, Lay"/"I Threw It All Away" - 7" mono single, CBS BA 301258 (Greece), 1969:

CBS BA 301258 (Greece) - A-side scan by Hans Seegers

Dylan releases were very rare during the Greek "colonels" regime, and this must have been regarded as non-political. CBS records were distributed by a company called "Music Box" in Athens. This single contained the album tracks from Nashville Skyline, and had orange CBS labels. There are two label variations: the first (not shown) has no space between "Produced by Bob Johnston" and the CBS logo, the second (shown) has 4mm space. For details of the same single released in mono in the USA and Canada in 1973 in the "Hall Of Fame" series, see International Mono 7" Singles 1970-76. For details of the same single released in stereo in the UK in 1976 in the "Hall Of Fame" series, see US & International 7" & 12" Singles & EPs 1974-76.

For the CBS Greece "Music Box" sleeve for this record, see 7" Single Sleeves.
