Home ] Up ]

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.

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!

Although this album is not a promotional release as we know it (it has no promo stamp, sticker or white labels), it was made to send to radio stations and music journalists (similar to Blood on the Tracks with orange labels and insert). The most interesting part of this album is the insert printed on pale yellow paper:  eight pages written by the Spanish rock journalist Jesús Ordovás, who wrote the first Dylan biography in Spanish. This insert reproduces an article published in the Spanish rock magazine "Disco Express" on 12 Sep 1975. The front of insert is illustrated with images of the sleeve and it has the title "BIOGRAFÍAS DE DISCOS CBS: BOB DYLAN "THE BASEMENT TAPES". The insert is reproduced in full on this sub-page.

Thanks to Manuel García Jara for information and scans.
