|Bob Dylan chronology|
Dylan is the thirteenth studio album by American singer-songwriter Bob Dylan, released in November 1973 by Columbia Records. Dylan was compiled and issued with no input from Dylan himself, using outtakes—two from Self Portrait and the remaining seven from New Morning. It followed the artist's departure from Columbia for Asylum Records, and the announcement of his first major tour since 1966.
Although Dylan received very poor reviews, it managed to hit #17 in the US and become a gold record. Perhaps not surprisingly, it became his first album never to chart in the UK, where his albums generally charted higher than in the US.
It is the only non-compilation Dylan album not to be released on CD in the North American market; in Europe, the CD was called Dylan – A Fool Such as I.
A different recording of "Spanish Is the Loving Tongue" had been issued as the B-side of Dylan's 1971 single "Watching the River Flow".
Until December 2009, the album was available on iTunes as part of the download Bob Dylan: The Collection.
