BOB DYLAN ‘ISLE OF WIGHT’

Dylan Isle Of Wight

This release went through many different issues released by different people in Europe and in the US. Most common are the TMoQ’s releases of this material (BD 521; 71050 & 1855). I will not document all of these variations, as they are already on bobsboots, I just want to mention the likely original issue. At the beginning, we find this 1970 British bootleg. “As with most early bootlegs, it was released with several packages that  varied slightly from one  another.  The first version  has an extra flap on the front.  It had a small blank black label and black vinyl.  It was issued with and without the title stamp.

There was also a version issued that first year that had a small yellow sticker on the front cover with the title and a drawling of an island. “

“The jacket of this 2nd run was either white or yellow.  The matrix on all pieces is C-7 A/B . In 1972 Contraband music released the same album with the same matrix and an additional ‘BEAVER REC. 104701/2’ and a very small ‘MOTION’.  It had a white jacket with a red and white insert, black vinyl, and the standard variety of blank or CBM labels [with or without] the pirate logo.  Copied from the original, but not in as good a quality. Matrix:  10470 1/2” [from bobsboots.com]
