The Essential Bob Dylan (2000)

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.

For releases of this album in Columbia multi-packs, see International Album Releases (Regular) - Multi-Packs.


The Bootleg Series Vol. 5: Live 1975 (2002)

<-

->

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!

Revised 17 October, 2017.


US release, Columbia CK 85975, 11 Sep 2001. The album title, the only one of Bob's album titles to be in quotes, is believed to reference a 1993 book by Eric Lott, "Love & Theft: Blackface Minstrelsy and the American Working Class".

For Limited Editions with a bonus disc, see 2001.

For a Chinese release which may not be authorised see Questionable Releases.

This title is one of the fifteen Dylan albums released in Sep 2003 as a hybrid CD/SA-CD. This is playable both in stereo on an ordinary CD player and in enhanced stereo on an SA-CD player or a DVD player that also plays SA-CDs (Sony's higher range models all do this). "Love And Theft" is also available on the SA-CD in 5.1 surround sound.

Thanks to Gerd Rundel for scans of an postcard-sized Columbia US advertising flyer promoting the album and Bob's 2001 US tour, with the chance to win prizes by entering an ID number at bobdylan.com.

LoveTheftLPFront.JPG (23697 bytes)
Columbia COL 504364 1 (NL for Europe) - front (my copy, bought in UK)
This single CD album was released on vinyl as a 2LP set, in a wide single outer sleeve with the records themselves in two picture inner sleeves. There is no country of origin on the sleeves or the record labels, but European Columbia vinyl releases are normally manufactured at Heemstede in Holland. The artwork is much larger than on the CD release (see below), and there are a couple of additional pictures. The records have simple red/black/white Columbia labels with written matrix numbers: Side 1 - 504 364 1000 1A; Side 2 - 504 364 1000 1B; Side 3 - 504 364 1000 1C; Side 4 - 504 364 1000 1C.

Detailed rear scans are shown for comparison with the US release above.

The twelve songs are divided up three per side.

"Love And Theft" - test pressings on CD-R, Columbia (no catalogue numbers) (UK/Germany), Aug 2001:

LandTfront.jpg (8484 bytes)
Front of UK insert - scan by Ian Stewart

Recordings like this on CD-R have now replaced record company acetates - the Sony Music Studios UK CD-R came in a clear plastic wallet with a white folded Sony Music Studios London paper insert. Bye And Bye is mis-spelled "By And By".

The German promo CD-R came in a slimline CD single jewel case without an insert. Bye And Bye is again mis-spelled "By And By". There is no album title or catalogue number. For a German CD-R 4-track single with the same disc design and the same song title mistake, see International Singles (2000s).

"'Love And Theft' Special Limited Edition" - 2CD set, Columbia CK 86076 (USA), 11 Sep 2001/Columbia COL 504364 9 (Austria for Europe), 10 Sep 2001/Columbia 5043649000 (Australia), 10 Sep 2001:


Columbia COL 504364 9 (Austria for Europe) - front of digipak with UK sticker (my copy)
This Limited Edition came in a three-panel digipak and included a bonus disc with two rarities. For comparison with the 2003 SA-CD edition below, the full insert is shown here.

There are slight differences inside the digipaks in that the US release has black bars between the three sections while they are white in the Austrian release. The US release also has a semi-circular cut-out at the left edge to assist removing the booklet, the Austrian release doesn't. The US discs are CK 85975 (same as the regular release) and CSK 54967, the Austrian discs are COL 504364 2 (again same as the regular release) and COL 504364 9 (as on the spine of the Austrian digipak). Because this Limited Edition contains rarities, it's also listed in 2001.

Thanks to Moise Potié for information and scans (my copy of CK 86076 is still sealed).

"Love And Theft" - advance promo CD-R, Columbia/Sony Music Studios CH 90340 (USA), 5 Jun 2003:


Columbia/Sony Music Studios CH 90340 (USA) - promo insert scan by Hans Seegers
This CD-R for radio play only comes in a clear plastic wallet with a Sony Music Studios, New York, single-sided paper insert dated "June 5, 2003". At the bottom of the insert is the text "This PMCD is part of Hybrid SA-CD project". I assume because it was sent to radio stations the CD-R has only the CD layer of the hybrid SA-CD release below.

Thanks to Sam Plessers for information and to Hans Seegers for further information and scans.

This release is housed in a fold-out digipak and the disc contains a CD version and SA-CD versions in stereo and 5.1 surround sound. The CD layer is exactly the same as the 2001 release.

There is an 12-page booklet with pictures of Bob from 2001. As can be seen, only the centre page of the hybrid SA-CD booklet can be said to be new, in that it shows a wider crop of the picture of Bob from the 2001 Limited Edition booklet. The SA-CD design reproduces a Columbia US vinyl label used in the 1930s. The yellow sticker on the front of the digipak is unique to this release.

"Love And Theft" - remastered CD release, Columbia 512357 2 (Europe), 29 Mar 2004:
Fourteen out of the fifteen Dylan albums released in 2003 as hybrid SA-CD editions were released in the USA and Europe in 2004 as CD-only versions in jewel cases. Although there was no need to replace the existing CD release, "Love And Theft" was also included in this release in Europe only. The fourteen excluding "Love And Theft" were released in Japan in card sleeves.


Reissue series generic sticker on front of jewel case, scan by Andy Jenkins
This release at mid-price is in a standard jewel case and consists of the remastered CD layer only of the 2003 hybrid SA-CD release above - it is of course exactly the same as the 2001 release! As it has not actually been remastered the sticker is in this case misleading. The front CD insert booklet includes pictures from the SA-CD booklet. The European release is made in Austria. The CD of this release was made in Austria and plain red as above. The disc is copyrighted for 2001, there is no mention of 2003. The booklet has the new catalogue number.

Thanks to Andy Jenkins and Tom Willems for information and scan.

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 "88691924312JK37" plus "DISC 41". The CDs are different in detail, the US "Love And Theft" CD has catalogue number "88691924312D41", whereas the European CD has catalogue number "88691924312-41". 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 these CDs.

For more details of the set, see International Album Releases (Multi-Packs) 2010s.
