EDITORS’ NOTES

Released by his label as he recuperated from his notorious motorcycle accident, this best-of set marks the end of the first phase of Bob Dylan’s career, which saw him go from acoustic folk troubadour in 1963 to a rock ’n’ roll star with a loud backing band by 1966. The sociopolitical “Blowin’ in the Wind” sounds like back-porch folk next to the surrealist “Mr. Tambourine Man,” and both “I Want You” and “Just Like a Woman” show how quickly Dylan grew as an empathetic songwriter capable of giant hooks.

Best Greatest Hits Collection

You should just get Freewheelin' Bob Dylan, Bringing It All Back Home, Highway 61 Revisited, Blonde on Blonde and Blood on the Tracks. But if you just want the hits or are strapped for cash this is pretty good.

Dylan

I'm just glad idiots haven't found out about Dylans genius. I'm sure they would question and scrutinize every song until we are washed into the sea. Truly great musician and album. Thanks.

How does it feel?

It feels great man. This is a collection of some of the most influential words in history, they just happen to all be written by the same poet. I'd reccomend this album to anyone. Sure, you may not find much of his less publicized works, but they're Dylan's works, so every song is worth the cash. Buy it, put the four discs on your playlist, and let the muse speak to you, because that's what makes Dylan so great, his muse speaks to everyone. Especially if you are a rolling stone, then you really get it, even if he doesn't get it, you get it.
