This is part of a list by release date of international (now including the USA, which was once listed separately) promo and commercially-released stereo 7" and 12" singles and EPs for 1977 that have been referred to me but do not qualify for my Searching For A Gem list because they contain only performances which are available on officially released Dylan albums. Nevertheless, their interest value or scarcity means they're worth listing here - as far as I know many are not included on any other Internet site. Special thanks to Hans Seegers for many of these items! Stereo promo versions of commercially released singles that were formerly listed in the Promotional Items sections of the yearly pages are now listed here. Singles released in this time period exclusively for promotional purposes are now here also. I would also like to include cassette singles here, but I don't have any, and none have been notified to me so far.
This page is still incomplete. 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!

"Romance In Durango"/"Sara" - 7" stereo single, CBS 4989 (Spain), 1977:
CBS 4989 (Spain) - front scan by Hans Seegers
|This single is unique in that it's the only worldwide appearance of Sara
on a 7" release. Although Romance In Durango segues into Black Diamond Bay
on Side 2 of Desire, this 5:50 stand-alone version is 6 seconds
longer than R-0519 from a Japanese 7" single as the B-side of One More Cup
of Coffee, see 1976. I'm therefore not classifying it
as a rarity.
Thanks to Francisco Lima for information about this single and to Hans Seegers for further information and scans.
