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.

For releases of this album in CBS/Columbia multi-packs, see International Album Releases (Regular) - Multi-Packs.

Original CD and MiniDisc Releases (US & International)


"Blood On The Tracks" - CD release: CBS/Sony 30DP 306 (Japan), 1 Apr 1985, re-released 1989; CD "Nice Price" reissue, Sony Records SRCS 6167 (Japan), 1991:


CBS/Sony 30DP 306 (Japan) - front with obi, scan by Hans Seegers (1985 release)

CBS/Sony 30DP 306 was one of the first Bob Dylan CDs released in Japan. The CD had a yellow, black, red and white shaped card obi with a top flap and a price of ¥3,000 (indicated by the "30" in the catalogue number - there was no sales tax in 1985). The album was released in 1989 after the introduction of sales tax with a new obi price of ¥2,812 (¥2,730 before sales tax). The rear insert showed the first David Oppenheim picture (see above) plus a tracklisting. There was a 32 page booklet. The CD was silver with black text.

The later mid-priced CD has a black, red, white, blue and yellow paper obi with the price ¥1,800. The rear insert shows the second picture by David Oppenheim (see above) with the tracklisting superimposed. There was a 24 page booklet. The CD itself is green with silver writing. It is actually a promo, but the only indication are small Japanese characters indicating a promo in the clear centre of the CD (not visible on the scan).

Thanks to Hans Seegers for information and scans.

"Blood On The Tracks" - CD release, Columbia CK 33235 (USA), mid 1980s:


Columbia CK 33235 (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.

Thanks to Hans Seegers for information and scans.

"Blood On The Tracks" - CD release, Columbia CK 33235 (USA), 1990s:


Columbia CK 33235 (USA) - front with "Best Value" sticker, scan by Moise Potié

This CD release, bought by me on a visit to the USA, is an attempt to restore the original artwork and includes the Pete Hamill sleeve notes. The front insert folds out into a square with the third US rear sleeve design (see above, white text instead of black) on the reverse. The rear insert repeats the first David Oppenheim picture (see above) plus a tracklisting. The background colours of the front and rear inserts are noticeably different, with the front insert colour being dark red and the rear insert colour much more maroon. Sergio Mariano Romay has a copy bought in Argentina with a "SONY INTERNATIONAL" sticker on the rear insert. The disc itself was manufactured in Japan.

Thanks to Moise Potié and Sergio Mariano Romay for information and scans.

"Blood On The Tracks" - CD release, Columbia VCK 33235 (Canada), mid 1980s (two releases); Columbia CK 33235 (Canada), 1988:


Columbia VCK 33235 (Canada) - front scan by Jack Guerreiro (both releases)

Columbia VCK 33235 was the first release of this album on CD in Canada. Manuel García Jara's copy has exactly the same inserts as Jack Guerreiro's, but the CD now has "Made at SMC" (Sony Music Canada) below the Columbia logo to the left of the centre hole. This is missing from Jack's CD, which means it was probably imported from the USA or even Japan.

The copy with catalogue number Columbia CK 33235 was bought in 1988. The CD doesn't have "Made at SMC" but it does have the inverted triangle to the right of the centre hole, introduced in the USA for LPs, cassettes and CDs with Biograph in 1985.

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

Columbia 467842 2 (Europe) - CD scan by Keith Schweiger (1997 release)

The first copy of Columbia 467842 2 shown has a red CD tray and a "Nice Price" front sticker with "Dylan Originals: 30 Years on Columbia", which dates it as 1991. The next two releases of Columbia 467842 2 are from 1997 (as shown by the insert including The Best Of Bob Dylan and Time Out Of Mind) and from about 2000. The 1997 release has a clear CD tray and a detail of the front sleeve on the reverse of the rear insert. The 2000 release has a black tray and the reverse of the rear insert is blank. The numbers at bottom right of the rear inserts are different, as shown in the pictures, but the CDs are the same.

Thanks to Marc Kuszel and Keith Schweiger for information and pictures.

Columbia CDCBS 69097 (Australia) - front insert unfolded, scan by Stuart Moore
These CD releases are the same as the European releases above and have a single folded card as the front insert. They use the second rear picture by David Oppenheim on the reverse of the front insert and on the rear insert, while the sleeve notes are again missing. The two Columbia CDs differ in the placement of the "MANUFACTURED IN AUSTRALIA..." text.

Thanks to Stuart Moore for information and scans.

"Blood On The Tracks" - Millennium Edition CD release, Columbia MILLEN16 (UK), 1999:

BOTTMillFront2.jpg (16906 bytes)
Columbia MILLEN16 (UK) - front scan by David Burgess
This CD came in a card sleeve reproducing the artwork of the second US LP - see above. Presumably it was thought pointless to reproduce the original rear sleeve with notes by Pete Hamill, since they would be unreadable in this size. It has what appears to be the equivalent of a Japanese obi, denoting it's a Millennium Edition (there were several other CDs in this series by Columbia artists other than Dylan).

It's just the standard commercial CD, not remastered even though Columbia was known to have remastered the album before then.

The front of the Austrian MiniDisc sleeve has a unique design with a crop of the front sleeve and the second US rear sleeve. The MiniDiscs themselves have labels with a crop of the front sleeve. There is no other information apart from a tracklisting.

"Blood On The Tracks" - advance promo CD-R, Columbia/Sony Music Entertainment CH 90323 (USA), 18 Jul 2003:


Columbia/Sony Music Entertainment CH 90323 (USA) - promo insert scan by Hans Seegers
This CD-R for radio play only comes in a clear plastic wallet with a single-sided paper insert dated "7/18/2003". I assume because it was sent to radio stations the CD-R has only the CD layer of the hybrid SA-CD release below.

Thanks to Hans Seegers for information and scans.

There is an eight-page booklet with the original sleeve notes and two unpublished pictures of Bob from 1974. The picture on the rear of the booklet is the one used for the European/Australian release The Best Of Bob Dylan Vol. 2 and the exclusive Swedish release The Very Best Of Bob Dylan - for both see 2000. The picture used on the rear insert of 1997's Time Out Of Mind also appears to be from this session. The SA-CD design reproduces the Columbia US stereo vinyl label used in 1974.

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.

Columbia 5123505000 (Australia) - CD scan by Stuart Moore

This CD is a reissue of Columbia 512350 2 from 2004 above, packaged in a "Vinyl Classics" slipcase. The CD itself is new, with a design showing the 1990s Columbia LP, with an unusual black playing surface as well. The front insert, an eight-page stapled booklet, is placed inside the slipcase at the back of the jewel case so the design of the CD shows through the cut-out in the insert. The catalogue number on the spine is Columbia 512350 2. In this release the first picture by David Oppenheim (see above) is repeated on both sides of the rear insert.

Thanks to Stuart Moore for scans of the Australian release. Thanks to Ian Woodward for finding a picture of a release with a rearranged front design.


"Blood On The Tracks" - CD release with "Rolling Stone" magazine "Coleccion 50 Años de Rock III CD No.4 [50 Years of Rock Collection CD No. 4]", Columbia/Sony/BMG 512350 2 (Argentina), 10 Oct 2005:


Columbia/Sony/BMG 512350 2 (Argentina) - front scan by Sergio Mariano Romay
This CD is a reissue of Columbia 512350 2 from 2004 above, included in a Rolling Stones magazine special issue "Coleccion 50 Años de Rock III CD No.4". The magazine has 13 pages of Bob in an article called "Canciones de Sangre Caliente [Songs of Hot Blood]" with photographs of Bob and opinions about the album by Argentinean journalists. The magazine and CD come in a special clear pack to be hung on a display rack in a store. The CD and inserts were made in Argentina by Sony/BMG. The CD is dated 2004, so it may have been on sale in Argentina separately the year before.

Thanks to Hervé from France and Sergio Mariano Romay for information and pictures.

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, also 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. Sadly, the rear sleeve of Blood On The Tracks is the second US design with the larger David Oppenheim painting, not the original rear with Pete Hamill's sleeve notes. 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 "88691924312JK16" plus "DISC 18" (because Blonde On Blonde and Before The Flood had two CDs each). The CDs are different in detail, the US Blood On The Tracks CD has catalogue number "88691924312D18", whereas the European CD has catalogue number "88691924312-18". 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.

SICP 30492 (Japan) - sealed copy with obi and front sticker, scan by Manuel García Jara
Thanks to Sonny Boy McFitzson and Éamonn Ó Catháin 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 Blu-Spec CD2 specification CDs come in card sleeves with printed inner sleeves and "SONY MUSIC" instead of "COLUMBIA" on the discs. Bob's 1970s albums from Self Portrait to Slow Train Coming will be released in Japan on 23 Apr 2014 in card sleeves as Blu-Spec CD2 discs numbered Sony Music SICP 30482 to SICP 30500. The 2013 remastered Blood On The Tracks will be SICP 30492, presumably identical musically to the Japanese 2013 Blu-spec CD2 release Sony Music SICP 30029 above.

This release comes as a Mini LP and a replica of the original US vinyl release. It comes in a card sleeve identical to that of the first US release. There is a maroon obi with white and black text. The CD itself, apart from the ring of Sony Music logos instead of a ring of Columbia logos, reproduces exactly Side 1 of the US record with the US catalogue number (PC 33235), matrix number (AL 33235) and the same typeface for the tracklist. For this reason, the Side 2 song titles are not printed on the CD.

Thanks to Manuel García Jara for information and scans.
