Album Review

Bob Dylan's first greatest-hits album was released in 1967, and his second in 1971. Twenty-three years later came his third, and it's a reasonable compilation of the better-known songs he produced over the period, notably standards like "Knockin' on Heaven's Door" and "Forever Young," Dylan chart hits like "Tangled Up in Blue" and "Hurricane," songs that have been covered extensively by other singers, such as "Ring Them Bells," and some of the better album tracks, such as "Changing of the Guard" and "Brownsville Girl." In an effort to span the period, a few lesser, later songs such as "Silvio" and "Under the Red Sky" are included, while some stronger, earlier songs are not ("Simple Twist of Fate," "Señor," "Emotionally Yours," and "Everything Is Broken"). But on the whole, the selection is excellent, and this is the album to get for that Dylan fan who stopped listening to him at the end of the '60s.

Customer Reviews

Does Bob Choose Which Songs Belong Here?

I am amazed that the B-Side tune "The Groom's Still Waiting At The Altar" is included on this Greatest Hits album. Is it because it is a good song (which it is), or because the record label wants to stretch out his hits for more Greatest Hits albums (which they do), or that someone released it outside the USA and it sold well there? Did it get much airplay around the USA? Dylan once said that he never knew that the song "Man Gave Names (To All The Animals)", from the Slow Train Coming album, had been released as a single in France, and had done well. When he performed in concert in Paris, he did not do the song and fans complained of it's omission. Fans in Israel have complained of his omission of "Neighborhood Bully", while not wanting to hear "In The Garden". All of us who have seen him in concert could complain that something has been omitted, due to the expansive volume of his catalog. Personally, I think the tune that does not belong here is "Brownsville Girl", but some reviewers have raved about how much they like it. That is one reason that iTunes is great. You can cherry pick your favorites, get other opinions (if you are open-minded), and sample listen to songs you might have missed along the way.

Hurricane

get "Dignity"

seriously its a GREAT Dylan song that isn't available, at least in studio version, elsewhere, not too be overlooked.

Bob Dylan's influence on popular music is incalculable. As a songwriter, he pioneered several different schools of pop songwriting, from confessional singer/songwriter to winding, hallucinatory, stream-of-consciousness narratives. As a vocalist, he broke down the notion that a singer must have a conventionally good voice in order to perform, thereby redefining the vocalist's role in popular music. As a musician, he sparked several genres of pop music, including electrified folk-rock and country-rock....
