Dylan is rock musician Bob Dylan's 13th studio album, released by Columbia Records in 1973.
Dylan was compiled and issued with little input from Bob Dylan himself, using outtakes drawn mostly from the Self Portrait and New Morning recording sessions. It followed the artist's departure from Columbia for Asylum Records, and the much-hyped announcement of his first major tour since 1966. Subsequently, it was seen as a cash-in and even a "revenge" move by Columbia, diluting the Dylan market just two months before the release of Planet Waves, and using two outtakes from the odd and much-derided Self Portrait album. (The remaining seven songs are actually New Morning outtakes.)
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, however it has recently surfaced as a digital download on iTunes.
