This is a separate multi-year list by release date of commercially-released Various Artist stereo compilation albums released in 2016 that have been referred to me but do not qualify for my Searching For A Gem list because they contain only Bob Dylan 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 some are not included on any other Internet site. Promo-only Various Artist compilation albums with Dylan tracks are now included in this list. Other International Albums and Compilations are now here:

Various Artists - "Ultimate Guitar Legends" - 4CD set, Sony Music Custom Marketing Group 88875147882 (UK), 8 Jan 2016:

Bob's contribution to this 4CD set of electric guitar-driven tracks is Buckets Of Rain from Blood On The Tracks, track 3 on CD3, a somewhat strange selection, considering the compiler could have instead chosen one of many Dylan tracks with blistering guitar work by Mike Bloomfield or Robbie Robertson. Mr. Tambourine Man by The Byrds, track  7 on CD1, is also included, certainly because of Roger McGuinn's 12-string guitar.

For three more Ultimate Various Artists Compilations with Dylan tracks, see below.

Mobile Fidelity AFZ5 240 (USA) - front picture from Éamonn Ó Catháin
Thanks to Éamonn Ó Catháin for information about this hybrid SA-CD sampler from Mobile Fidelity, which contains Lay, Lady, Lay from Nashville Skyline in SA-CD 4.0 (quadraphonic) surround sound, SA-CD stereo, and CD stereo. The 2003 Columbia hybrid SA-CD release of Nashville Skyline contains only a CD version and an SA-CD stereo version, and there was no surround sound version despite the fact the album was also released in quadraphonic sound.

Robbie Robertson & Friends - "Testimony" - compilation CD release, Universal Music Enterprises B0025803-02 (USA), 11 Nov 2016:


Universal Music Enterprises B0025803-02 (USA) - front with sticker (my copy)
From Universal Music Enterprises press release: "On November 11, UMe will release Testimony, a new anthology of 18 recordings personally curated by Robertson to accompany his new memoir of the same name, to be released November 15 by Crown Archetype. Testimony journeys across studio and live recordings spanning Robertson's storied music career, before, during and after The Band's heyday." The album contains Rainy Day Women #12 & 35 from Before The Flood and Obviously 5 Believers from Blonde On Blonde.

Thanks to Ian Woodward for information. Thanks to Brian Grist for information that in this book Robertson writes of recording Tell Me Momma at the same session (21 Jan 1966) as She's Your Lover Now, yet no evidence of such a recording has yet come to light. On page 207 he states: "We rambled through a song called She's Your Lover Now. Then another new tune, Tell Me, Momma, with its salty punch line- "Baby, tell me, what's wrong with you this time?''" Is the author mistaken or did Dylan and the Hawks work on it in the studio that day when the tapes were not rolling? If they did record it, why no sight of it on The Cutting Edge?


Various Artists - "Bad Santa 2: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack" - MP3 download/CD compilation, Red River Entertainment (catalogue number?) (USA), 18 Nov 2016, CD released 3 Nov 2017:


Soundtrack album picture from www.amazon.com
