The Bootleg Series Vol. 7 - No Direction Home
(2005)

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.


Modern Times
(2006)

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!

US release in digipak, Columbia/Legacy 82876 75013 2, 15 Nov 2005.

The cover picture is by Ken Regan from the 1975 Rolling Thunder Revue tour. This album is not the same as the 1997 European release of the same name which contained a rarity, the alternate version of Shelter From The Storm from the "Jerry Maguire" film soundtrack, not the version from Blood On The Tracks.

Tracklisting: Blowin' In The Wind; The Times They Are A-Changin'; Mr. Tambourine Man; Like A Rolling Stone; Rainy Day Women #12 & 35; All Along The Watchtower; Lay, Lady, Lay; Knockin' On Heaven's Door; Tangled Up In Blue; Hurricane; Forever Young; Gotta Serve Somebody; Jokerman; Not Dark Yet; Things Have Changed (R-0299); Summer Days. Liner notes describing the songs are by Bill Flanagan.

Like The Essential Bob Dylan US release, this album has now been added to the Bob Dylan albums page on bobdylan.com, and R-0299 has been removed from the rarities list, see Released Rarities.

Revised 18 September, 2014.
