Dylan is an album by American singer-songwriter Bob Dylan, which is made up of outtakes he recorded for earlier albums. Columbia Records compiled it with no input from Dylan and released it on November 16, 1973. The album followed the artist's departure from Columbia for Asylum Records, and the announcement of his first major tour since 1966. In Europe the album was released with the title A Fool Such as I.
The album is made up from studio outtakes from the previous Dylan releases Self Portrait and New Morning. The nine songs featured on the album consists of six cover songs and three traditional songs, adapted and arranged by Dylan. The first seven tracks were recorded in June 1970 during the New Morning sessions, the last two were recorded in April 1969 during the Self Portrait sessions. The album features a different recording of "Spanish Is the Loving Tongue" than the version previously issued as the B-side of Dylan's 1971 single "Watching the River Flow".
The album cover was designed by art director John Berg. The original photograph featured on the album's front was shot by photographer Al Clayton. The serigraph was carried out by artist Richard Kenerson.
Although Dylan received very poor reviews upon its release, it managed to reach No. 17 in the U.S. and was certified gold by the RIAA. It became the first Bob Dylan album not to chart in the UK, where his albums generally charted higher than in the U.S.
