Bob Dylan ‎– Highway 61 Revisited

Columbia ‎– CS 9189
Vinyl, LP, Album, Stereo, Alternate take of "From a Buick 6"



This is the rarer stereo version of this LP with an alternate take of "From A Buick 6", with harmonica opening.
On this 2 EYE label , this first stereo release label has the text "NONBREAKABLE". This text disappeared from the next release.
The demonstration release has a white sticker "For demonstration use only" or red stamp "DEMONSTRATION NOT FOR SALE" on back cover.

First Stereo releases with Matrix SIDE 1 ends with "-1" followed by a letter from A to D come with the alternate take of "From A Buick 6" (see "Searching For A Gem") webpage with Dylan rarities.
No matter matrix on side B.

No mono copies exist with this alternate take of "From A Buick 6".

The very first run of cover, on back has the word "meaningful" mistakenly written, early corrected with "meaningless" (see pic from my copy).

"...trying to find out how many copies of the original US pressings of "Highway 61 Revisited" were sold with the free art print by "Lambert". On Sept 1, 1965, Stan Kavan of Columbia wrote to its distributors and sales managers enclosing this "unique Dylan portrait" and advising that it would be "packed under the skin wrap on the liner side" of "all copies of your initial shipment as well as reorders for the next few weeks or as long as the supply lasts". The Stan Kavan memo is quoted in full on pages 369-370 of a book called "The Label: The Story of Columbia Records" by Gary Marmorstein (Thunder's Mouth Press, 2007). The person posing the question bought his copy in Hartford, CT, on Sept 11, 1965, and it did not have a print, or indeed the front stickers shown on these stereo and mono albums."

I'm confused on my stereo copy. I have the "unbreakable" on the label, but the version of From A Buick 66 is not the alternate. Runouts are S1:XSM110640-2D and S2:XSM110641-1B. Is this the first pressing with the intended From A Buick 66? Is it worth anything. Thanks all...

the Matrix \ Runout on my version reads XSM110640 1B. Does that make it a completely defferent version?

Can anyone tell me more about this release? CS9189, mono sleeve with stereo sticker, but can't find information on the sticker anywhere. MATRIX XSM110640-2A XSM110641-1G.

I have a UK CBS 62572 which has A4 and B5 etched on the run-outs. Can't seem to find it here, can anyone else find it?

The take of "From A Buick 6" presented here was an obvious mistake. It plays loose and sloppy unlike the tightness of the standard version.
