This page is part of a list of original releases by release date of international commercially-released multi-packs of regular stereo Dylan albums. These are listed here to save multiple entries on each album page. 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.

These pages are 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!
