Thanks to Hans Seegers for information and scans. Thanks to Tony Cox for information that a copy for sale on eBay has blue labels. However, Hans Seegers is of the opinion that only copies with black labels as shown are genuine - this album was on the market for too short a time to have had a second release.

"Dylan London Interview" - promo LP, Columbia AS 1259 (USA), Sep 1981:

Columbia AS 1259 (USA) - cover of LP is plain apart from the two stamps (my copy)

R-0155 Interview with Dave Herman, White House Hotel, London, 2nd July, 1981, Bob strums guitar throughout

Broadcast on Radio WNEW-FM, New York, on 27th July, 1981. The LP also includes three sample songs from Shot Of Love: the title track, Heart Of Mine, and Every Grain Of Sand. One of these was originally reported to me as an exclusive live version from Earls Court, London, where Bob played from 26 Jun 1981 to 1 Jul 1981, but sadly this is not so.

The album was released in two variants, one with Side 2 as 22:35 and the other with the timing as 22:59 - Hans Seegers informs me the second variant does actually have 24 seconds more of the interview!

According to the UK "Record Collector" magazine, counterfeit copies exist of this album, and can be identified because the matrix numbers on the record centre are handwritten.

Thanks to Hans Seegers and Truman Peyote for scans and additional information.

Al Kooper & Friends - "The Third Annual Kapusta Kristmas Album" - stereo vinyl LP, private distribution by Al Kooper, Partners In Crime NL-109 (USA), Dec 1981:


Partners In Crime NL-109 (USA) - front scan by Hans Seegers

R-0487 Bob introduces Al Kooper's parents from the stage at the Meadowlands Arena, East Rutherford, NY, 27 Oct 1981 (during In The Garden)

Thanks to Keith Venturoni for information about this item.

From the eBay description provided by the seller: "For a few years in the 70's and early 80's, Al Kooper put out an annual Christmas album filled with novelty and strange music and dialogue for his friends only. This one, the third, features a track with Bob Dylan in concert introducing Al's parents, Sam and Natalie, at a Meadowlands, NJ, concert from the stage. Here's what the notes say: "In 1981, I toured for three months with BD and my parents came to see us play in New Jersey. I mentioned to Bob that my folks were there before we went onstage, and this is what happened. Thanks Bob." Bob introduces them, goofs around telling the audience they are the parents of a friend, but he's not gonna tell the audience who. Then after a bit, he says "OK, I'll tell you". And introduces Al. No music, but a rare bit of Bob humour. There are also bits with Buddy Rich yelling at his band, a famous tape called "J & H" productions with an out of it promoter trying to get work from a record label, and other strange bits. With a great cover and Al's funny liner notes. Very very rare."

R-0315 Song To Woody - album version talked over by Bob

Bob does not actually appear in the film performing this song, it plays over a series of stills in disc chapter 18 "Bob Dylan & Woody" as part of an interview recorded for this project with Bob talking to Ralph Rinzler about Woody Guthrie.

Before the song Bob says: "Woody was like a particular sound and besides that he said something that seemed to be needed to be said, to go along with his sound. I like the way he played to say and I like the things that he said when he sang".

Over the complete version of the song, Bob says: "I started singing his songs. There was a time I did nothing but his songs. He's written so many and I knew them all! I think I  was a Woody Guthrie jukebox! I was completely taken over by him. By the spirit or whatever. I mean, he had so much to give, you know. He was like a link in the chain for me. You could listen to his songs and actually learn how to live. I think he did a whole lot more then he ever knew he did" (Thanks to Hans Seegers for transcript.)

R-0349 Interview material including:
  • "Folksinger's Choice" WBAI radio broadcast with Cynthia Gooding, New York, Feb 1962 (broadcast 11 Mar 1962)
  • Interview with Antoine de Caunes in France, 17 Jun 1984
  • Interview with Klas Burling, Sweden, 29 Apr 1966 (also see 2000 below)

Gary Smith says "It's a little over 29 minutes long, the bulk it containing roughly 12 minutes of the interview portions only from the famed "Folksinger's Choice" WBAI radio broadcast with Cynthia Gooding, 1962, and an interview from 1984 which, as good as I can guess (there's no exact date given) is from 6/17, with Antoine De Caunes in France. The interviewer is most certainly French, and the interview is nearly 16 minutes in length. Also there's about a minute's worth of the interview with Klas Burling in Sweden, 4/29/66 and a couple of snippets from other periods, none of which I recognize nor have info on."

Thanks to Gary Smith for the loan of the CD.

R-0496-4 Interview at press conference, San Francisco, CA, 3 Dec 1965

This version of the San Francisco interview is misdated 1966, and interspersed throughout with comments by "host" author Geoffrey Guiliano. The "Summer of Love" title refers to the summer of 1967 and has nothing to do with the contents of this disc.

R-0496-5 Interview at press conference, San Francisco, CA, 3 Dec 1965

This is the version of the San Francisco interview interspersed throughout with comments by "host" author Geoffrey Guiliano as on the Summer Of Love CD above. The "Blood On The Tracks" title of this CD is again misleading and again has nothing to do with the contents of this disc. There is no front insert and the reverse of the rear insert under the clear CD tray is generic for the "Rock Report" series.

Random House Audio RHCD 432 (USA) - CD1 scan by Rob Cole

Thanks to Peter Gilmer for information about this item, who says: "This double CD is from Random House Audio, RHCD 432.  Once again, it's a less than exciting Geoffrey Giuliano piece.  It includes lengthy excerpts from the San Francisco 1965 press conference (of course) and, I think, the Los Angeles press conference from the same year (I'll check that soon) and the Rome 2001 press interview.  There's also a large chunk of the Klas Burling interview from Sweden, 1966 and a short extract from Dylan's Grammy acceptance speech where he talked about seeing Buddy Holly in the Duluth Armory.  Also, it contains two very short excerpts from very early interviews that I'm not familiar with at the moment.  I'll track them down, hopefully.  The back of the CD includes the following sentence: "He has toured the country as a member of The Travelling Wilburys, joining with rock icons Tom Petty, George Harrison and Roy Orbison."  I must've missed that!"

(Peter is quite right - no Travelling Wilburys tour ever took place!) Also thanks to Rob Cole for the scans.
