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 - "The Collection: An Adventure In Sound" - hybrid SA-CD compilation, Mobile Fidelity AFZ5 240 (USA), Mar 2016:


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.

Various Artists - "To Były Czasy! To Była Muzyka! [Those Were The Days! That Was The Music!]" - five Sony Music annual CD compilations (catalogue numbers below) (Poland),  2016:


Sony Music 88875136852 (Poland) - front picture from www.amazon.co.uk (Like A Rolling Stone/Mr. Tambourine Man)
These five Sony Music annual CD compilations for years between 1965 and 1981 were part of a series released in Poland in conjunction with the popular newspaper "Super Express". The other company names on the rear insert are all connected with media publishing. The text in the coloured stripe on the front reads: "Popular hits from yesteryear. Musical journey and a soundtrack to important moments in life. Ideal present for a birthday or any other occasion." 1965 appears to be the earliest in the series and 1989 (no Dylan) was the last.

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.

"Testimony" book picture from www.amazon.co.uk

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?

Compilations with Out of Copyright Tracks

Sony let the copyright to the 1962 releases of Bob Dylan and Bob's first single Mixed Up Confusion expire in 2012. This has led to many budget record labels releasing unauthorised editions of Bob Dylan or including tracks from the album on compilations without authorisation. These are now listed separately from the other Various Artists Compilations. Sony has of course rectified this situation by renewing the copyrights of the albums from The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan onwards, and with the limited edition 50th Anniversary Collection releases from 1962 onwards.


Various Artists - "The Best Of American Folk & Blues" - 3CD set, Not Now Music NOT3CD211 (UK), 18 Jan 2016:


Not Now Music NOT3CD211 (UK) - picture from www.amazon.co.uk
This 3CD budget compilation includes Baby, Let Me Follow You Down from Bob Dylan, track 2 on CD1. This is almost certainly unauthorised and included because the copyright in the EU had expired.

Thanks to John Willy Bakke and Hans Seegers for information.


Various Artists - "Best Of The 60s" - stereo vinyl LP, Bellevue 02000-LP3 (UK),  2016:


Bellevue 02000-LP3 (UK) - front (my copy)
Bob's contribution to this budget vinyl compilation is House Of The Risin' Sun from Bob Dylan, track 2 on Side 1. This appearance is probably unauthorised because the 1962 album is now public domain.

Various Artists - "Ohrwürmer [Ear Worms] - Summer Of Love" - compilation CD, Ohrwürmer 1483 (Germany), 2016:


Ohrwürmer 1483 (Germany) - front scan by Peter Oudejans
Bob's contribution to this German budget compilation CD is again House Of The Risin' Sun from Bob Dylan. This appearance is again probably unauthorised because the 1962 album is now public domain. The Dylan performance was released in 1962 but the "Summer of Love" is normally considered as not having been until 1967.

Various Artists - "Greatest Hits Ever!" - compilation CD, Stargrove Entertainment STR 0036 (Canada), 2016:


Stargrove Entertainment STR 0036 (Canada) - front scan by Peter Oudejans

This grandly titled budget Canadian compilation CD includes The Times They Are A-Changin' from the album of the same name, again released unofficially. Stargrove took advantage of the previous Canadian copyright laws that limited copyright to 50 years, and have also released albums by the Beatles, the Rolling Stones and the Beach Boys. Copyright was extended to 70 years by the Canadian Government in Jun 2015, but material which passed into the public domain before that date was not re-copyrighted.

Thanks to Peter Oudejans for information and scans.
