DOSSIER BOB DYLAN, Spain

    The booklet shown below, was included in the Spanish promo LP FOREVER YOUNG 1960-1978.


    In searchingforagem.com Manuel García Jara explains more about this very rare release:


    "Usually a compilation of previously released tracks has two purposes:
     1) As an introduction to the work of an artist, usually released in some countries where records of this artist were scarce or still unreleased: e.g. POETA O PROFETA (Argentina/Uruguay, 1967) or LOS MÁS GRANDES ÉXITOS DE BOB DYLAN (Venezuela, 1972),
     2) With a strictly commercial purpose (most part of worldwide compilations).
     However, these two reasons were not applicable to Spain in 1978: all Dylan albums were already released in Spain and this album was made as a strictly promotional record.
     Why did CBS Spain make this album? In the 1970s the Dylan bibliography in the Spanish language was very, very scarce; the few books available at the time were very subjective and they were full of errors, rumours and wrong information; it was very usual at this moment to read in magazines and to hear on the radio a lot of rumours ("Bob is doing an album sung entirely in Spanish"), ridiculous information ("Bob wrote Sad-Eyed Lady Of The Lowlands with a lipstick) and a lot of wrong news. Many professionals in the media asked CBS Spain for a serious and rigorous work... and then CBS made this set, exclusively for music professionals, where the record is a complement of the dossier and not vice versa.
     The complete set includes the album (only 200 un-numbered copies) and a 14-page dossier written by Diego A. Manrique. This album is extremely rare but the value as a collector's item decreases if this dossier is missing.
     It was released in late 1978, after the release of STREET LEGAL (Changing Of The Guards is included in the album) and before the release of BOB DYLAN AT BUDOKAN. The sleeve is fully laminated and was printed by Indugraf, one of two CBS printers (Offset ALG is the other). The front has a green sticker with the text "Disco Promocional / Prohibida Su Venta".
    The full discography of Bob is shown on the rear (except the two albums released by Asylum). Several mistakes: the title BRINGING IT ALL BACK HOME is given as just "BRINGING" and some albums have Spanish titles or the English title as they were known in Spain: A BRIGHT NEW NAME IN FOLK MUSIC (the debut album, 1962) or BOB DYLAN (1973) instead of DYLAN.
    The 14-page dossier includes a year by year chronology about Bob and his work, including bibliography and filmography available in Spain."

    Below is the document: 14 pages of biografical elements compiled by Diego A.Manrique, included in the very rare Spanish promo compilation LP BOB DYLAN 1960-1978 FOREVER YOUNG (flip the booklet and scroll down to see the cover and the promo LP).
