This is Bob Dylan's super rare single Mixed Up Confusion b/w Corrina Corrina on Columbia Radio Station Copy promo white label. Mixed Up Confusion was first issued as a promo to radio stations in 1962. It didn't make it on the album with Corrina Corrina because they thought the sound didn't match with the album. It never was released on an official album. That's why these original 1st issue pressed 45 promos are so rare and limited.

Mixed Up Confusion, Bob’s Dylan’s first-ever Columbia single, received negligible airplay, never charted and never sold. Numerous Commercial copies were returned to Columbia and the copies that did survive, did so in rather low numbers. It’s debatable if promos are harder to find today than commercial issues, but one thing is sure. Far fewer copies of the white label promos were pressed than commercial copies. This, the original 45 rpm single, is the first of four different takes in circulation of this recording. Though this is a white label promo, the label printing is commensurate with commercial label variant No. 2 with “Prod. By John Hammond,” below Dylan’s name at the bottom of the label. However, as it is a promo, the legend “Not For Sale Radio Station Copy” under the Columbia moniker at the top is only found on promos. The B side, Corrina, Corrina, is an alternate take to that found on The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan, which both of these cuts were originally recorded for. There are numerous other details to report on this very rare record, but to do so would take up way too much space here. Please refer to the Dylan collectible website, Searching For A Gem, for everything you could possibly want to know about this recording: Additionally, the flipside, Corrina, Corrina, is an alternate take to that found on the album “The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan.” [Due to their faster turning speed and wider groove spread, 45 rpm pressings exhibit more detailed playback than LP pressings, which turn slower and feature more compacted groove spread.]
