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 tape (8-track and cassette) releases of the album. Desire CD 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.

CBS 42-86003 (Italy) - front of 8-track tape cartridge, scan by Manuel García Jara

"Desire" - 8-track stereo cartridge release, CBS 42-86003 (Spain), Jan 1976:


CBS 42-86003 (Spain) - front of tape cartridge with gold safety shield, scan by Manuel García Jara

This very rare Spanish cartridge tape is one of only four Dylan 8-track cartridges released there (Bob Dylan's Greatest Hits, Nashville Skyline, both by CBS, and Planet Waves by Asylum/Hispavox were the other three). This item still has the original golden safety shield across the tape opening (these cartridges were released wrapped in cellophane with this shield but not in slipcases).

CBS 42-86003 (Spain) - reverse of tape cartridge with gold safety shield, scan by Manuel García Jara


CBS 42-86003 (Spain) - end of tape cartridge scan by Manuel García Jara

The cartridge was made for CBS Spain by an unusual company, BOCSA, and the labels were printed by Gráficas Dauco (the usual printing company for CBS tapes). It must have been released in early 1976 because the CBS address is still Calle Princesa, 1. This was when the first Spanish copies of the album came to the stores without the text "Nº 1 en USA" printed on the front (like the front of this cartridge). The album title has been translated as Deseo on the cartridge end. The song titles are in Spanish and in English. Romance In Durango is split between Program 3 and Program 4. because this is a rarity, this entry is also listed in 1976.

Tracklisting:

Program 1: Huracán [Hurricane]; Sara
Program 2: Isis; Mozambique; Oh, Hermana [Oh, Sister]
Program 3: Joey; Romance En Durango (Primera Parte) [Romance In Durango] (First Part)
Program 4: Romance En Durango (Segunda Parte) [Romance In Durango] (Second Part); Bahia Del Diamante Negro [Black Diamond Bay]; Una Taza Mas De Cafe [One More Cup Of Coffee].

CBS 40-32570 (UK) - front of cassette with "CBS Nice Price" sticker, Manuel García Jara (1980s release)
The Columbia/CBS UK cassette release shown (and one vinyl release) contains an unfaded version of Oh, Sister with an uncensored exchange between Emmylou Harris and Bob (R-0208, this is cut on the normal LP and CD versions). The insert has "Columbia" on the spine. The earlier CBS cassette releases date from the 1980s, and have "CBS" logos on the insert front and spine. Manuel's copy has a different outside insert from mine, and no barcode. My copy has a barcode on a sticker, not part of the original release. The three light grey cassettes shown look identical with black text printed on to them directly and no paper labels, but my copy and Manuel's definitely do not have R-0208. On all cassettes the track order is altered, with Sara at the end of Side 1, and Oh, Sister at the end of Side 2.

For more details see the CBS 32570 UK LP entry on the main Desire page and 1985.

The cassette is transparent grey with white text printed directly on to it, there are again no paper labels.
