I think to create a separate entry for this box or other similar boxes of the 60s is not a good idea! From my humble point of view, it would add more confusion to other collectors.
I know some Dylan collectors who have bought this same box ("A Swinging Party! From Masterwork") hoping to find the collectable Dylan single "I Want You" with the stamped text "Masterwork"...but the box did not include any Dylan single!
There is a lot of confusion with those Columbia boxes and I would like to add the following points:
- Since the early 60s, Columbia made a series of boxes like "Philco Invites You To A Party Pop Vol I & II", "Swingers From Masterwork", "Philco Invites You To A Disc-A Go-Go Vol 1 & 2", "The Lively Ones! Five Swinging 45s From Masterwork"... Those boxes included five current Columbia singles as they were released, with or without picture sleeves. Only the earliest boxes have singles with exclusive labels (See [image]1704987[/image] ), but the boxes of the mid 60s like this one have standard singles with stamped text, not printed.
- Those boxes were available for months or even for years.
- They were generic boxes: the list of singles included were not printed anywhere on the box.
- It implies that the list of singles included in a box is VARIABLE: you can find different singles in boxes with identical title! E.g. I know that the box "Philco Invites You To A Disc-A Go-Go" some times included a Dylan single "I Want You" (also included in the box of this entry), some times "Rainy Day Women" or "Just Like A Woman" or "One Of Us Must Know" and even some times this same box doesn't include any Dylan record!
