The Basement Tapes
(1975)

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.

Because of the very large number of Desire releases, this page now contains all the CD releases of the album. Desire tape releases are now here. To return to the main Desire page press "Up" or the back button in your browser. For releases of this album in CBS/Columbia multi-packs, see International Album Releases (Regular) - Multi-Packs.

Original CD and MD (MiniDisc) Releases


"Desire" - CD release, Columbia CK 33893 (USA), mid-1980s:


Columbia CK 33893 (USA) - front of "long box" with CD, scan by Hans Seegers
This was the first US CD release of Desire. The CD has a folded front insert with minimal information. The CD itself has the CBS logo. First copies of this CD release of the album in the USA came in the "long box" shown.

Wil Gielen has a copy of the US release imported into Japan with an obi from the Shinseido record store chain (see below).

Thanks to Hans Seegers and Gil Lamont for information and scans.

"Desire" - CD release, Columbia CK 33893 (USA for export to Japan), mid 1990s:


Columbia CK 33893 (USA for Japan) - front with obi and sticker, scan by Wil Gielen
Wil Gielen has an early 1990s copy of the US release imported into Japan with an obi from the Shinseido record store chain. The obi was added by the store to import US copies (which were much cheaper than Japanese releases) to provide buyers with information in Japanese. The inside of the front insert and the CD are different from the US copy owned by Gil Lamont. The CD includes the inverted triangle used on Columbia LPs, cassettes and CDs in the USA since the release of Biograph in 1985.

The price on the obi of ¥1,602 has Japanese characters meaning "excluding tax", which means it was imported into Japan after the introduction of sales tax in 1989.

Thanks to Wil Gielen for information and scans.


"Desire" - CD release, Columbia CK 33893 (Canada), late 1980s/early 1990s; Columbia WCK 33893 (Canada), mid-1990s:


Columbia CK 33893 (Canada) - front scan by Jack Guerreiro (first release)
The album with the yellow artwork was the first CD release of Desire in Canada. Like the US release, the front insert was a single folded card. This CD has the Columbia logo. The mid-1990s release from Moise Potié has green artwork and a stapled booklet for the front insert. The CDs differ in that the first release has "MADE IN CANADA", while the second release has "MADE AT SMC" (Sony Music Canada). The second release has catalogue number WCK 33893 on the spines but CK 33893 on the CD itself.

Thanks to Jack Guerreiro and Moise Potié for information and scans.

Columbia UK 2000 promotional insert reverse, scan by Keith Schweiger

This album was released on CD in Europe four times from the 1980s through to 2000. All copies were made in Austria. The first CBS release has a CD with black text only, the second renumbered CBS release has red panels. The two Columbia releases shown have the same red panel design, with only the centre markings of the CD being different. My copy of Columbia CD 32570 in the "Nice Price" series dates from 1997 as shown by the UK-specific promo insert with two 1997 releases - The Best Of Bob Dylan and Time Out Of Mind. The front insert is a 24-page stapled booklet including the lyrics of the songs. Keith Schweiger's copy has a 2000 insert showing The Best Of Bob Dylan and The Best Of Bob Dylan Vol. 2. My copy has a black CD tray, Keith Schweiger's copy has a clear CD tray and a crop of the front photo on the reverse of the rear insert. Both rear inserts are the same.

Thanks to Keith Schweiger for information and scans.

 "Desire" - CD release with "TV Sorrisi e Canzoni [TV Smiles And Songs]" magazine #17, Columbia (no catalogue number) (Italy), 26 Apr - 2 May 2003:


"Sorrisi e Canzoni TV" magazine with Desire (Italy) (my copy)
The Italian magazine, which was on sale in the week before 26 Apr 2003, is still sealed, so I cannot show the CD - the inserts appear to differ in detail of the European release shown above. Scans required! The CD is the standard "pre-SA-CD" CD release.

Thanks to Keith Owen for the sealed copy of the magazine and to Hans Seegers for further information.

Columbia CH 90318 (USA/Canada):


Columbia CH 90318 (USA/Canada) - front of digipak (my copy)
This release is housed in a digipak and the disc contains both a CD version and an SA-CD stereo version. Again, despite the fact this album was released in quadraphonic sound, there was no 5.1 surround sound version.

The inside of the digipak has two unpublished Rolling Thunder Revue pictures of Bob from 1976. There is an 8-page booklet with the original sleeve notes. The lyrics of the songs are no longer included. The SA-CD design reproduces the Columbia US stereo vinyl label used in 1976. The booklet for the Canadian releases has been printed in Canada. My Canadian copy of this release also has the yellow sticker shown for The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan on the outside of the shrink-wrap.

Thanks to Gil Lamont for the scan of a different yellow sticker from his US copy - this sticker is album-specific.

Columbia 512345 6 (Austria for Europe):

"Desire" - hybrid SA-CD release, Mobile Fidelity UDSACD 2119 (USA/Europe), 11 Nov 2013:


Mobile Fidelity
UDSACD 2119 (USA/Europe) - front of card sleeve (my copy)

This release is a reissue of the 2003 hybrid SA-CD release. It contains the unfaded version of Oh, Sister with the uncensored exchange between Emmylou Harris and Bob that was earlier found on 1990s "Nice Price" vinyl and cassette reissues of Desire (R-0208, see 1985). The disc is black and silver and comes in a folded sleeve of thick card with a limited edition number on the back (my copy is "01361").

The rear sleeve of my copy has a new Sony Music logo (not used in North America) and states the disc was made in Austria. However, there is no country of origin on the disc itself, which also does not have the Columbia catalogue number "88697947012" (my guess is I actually have an American disc). There is an eight page stapled booklet with the Desire photos and sleeve notes, and a Mobile Fidelity insert of folded card with details of their technology on the outside and illustrations of  24 albums from their catalogue on the inside, including The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan (2081) and The Basement Tapes (2082).

There is also a 2013 Mobile Fidelity stereo 2LP set release of the album that also contains the rarity.

Thanks to Éamonn Ó Catháin for information.

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. 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 "88691924312JK18" plus "DISC 21" (because Blonde On Blonde, Before The Flood and The Basement Tapes had two CDs each). The CDs are different in detail, the US Desire CD has catalogue number "88691924312D21", whereas the European CD has catalogue number "88691924312-21". 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.
