This is the first part of a list of songs in the Searching For A Gem pages. Titles in red are not included on a currently available Columbia Bob Dylan CD (for these see bobdylan.com ). Dates are of first release.

(Indefinite and definite articles at the beginning of song titles are ignored, so A COUPLE MORE YEARS is listed under "C" and THE BALLAD OF HOLLIS BROWN is listed under "B", for example. "Dr." is listed as if it were spelled out as "Doctor".)

Ain't That Loving You (Deadric Malone)

R-0151 Bob is reputed to play on this track on the Sir Douglas Band's Atlantic album Texas Tornado, 1973

Airplane Blues (Allen Ginsberg)

R-0226 Bob plays bass on this track recorded Rundown Studios, Santa Monica, CA, Jan 1982 (4:26), from Allen Ginsberg's 1994 Rhino Word Beat boxed set Holy Soul Jelly Roll: Poems And Songs 1949-1993, see 1994
In the liner notes to Allen Ginsberg's Omnivore Records 3CD set The Last Word On "First Blues", see 2016, producer Pat Thomas says that the released version on Holy Soul Jelly Roll is without Bob, despite the fact he's credited in the set's booklet. However, two versions were recorded, the first without Bob and the second with Bob. The two circulating takes are 6:29 and 4:22, so this corresponds to the second take. Pat Thomas also says he chose not to release the second version with Bob on the bonus disc with The Last Word On "First Blues"! R-0226 may therefore not be a Dylan rarity.
