Album Review

Historically, Biograph is significant not for what it did for Dylan's career, but for establishing the box set, complete with hits and rarities, as a viable part of rock history. Following Biograph, multi-disc box sets for veteran rockers became accepted and almost the norm, but that doesn't discount this set's strengths as a summary of Dylan's career, using the familiar and the rare to draw a fully rounded portrait of his strengths as a songwriter, musician, and record-maker in a way that conventional choices alone couldn't achieve. Certainly, the chief attraction of this set, even years after its initial release, is its smattering of rarities that aren't just rare, but revealing — ranging from forgotten rock B-sides and singles to demos, alternate takes, and unreleased songs that rival official releases. But Biograph is really remarkable for weaving these songs into a fabric that reveals the true trajectory of Dylan's career, offering as much to the curious as it does to the dedicated. That sets a standard for box sets that has rarely been matched, making Biograph all the more impressive in retrospect. [In 1997, Columbia Records issued an upgraded, reconfigured version of Biograph, with a new catalog number (65298), a lower list price, and with its packaging and booklet reduced from an LP-size box to a CD-size slipcase. The original 1985 set in the large-size box, which marked the first time that the label had gone back to original first-generation tapes on a Dylan CD, was pretty impressive; but the 1997 CD-size box version, remastered in Sony's Super Bit Mapping process, is a significant improvement over that, and is to be preferred.]

Customer Reviews

Buy Abandoned Love

Among this gold mine of tracks there is a rare gem only found here. The track is Abandoned Love (#29). I am a huge Dylan fan and this song is quickly moving up the ranks in my list of top Dylan tracks of all time. Musically, lyrically and ideally it is brilliant - pure poetry. Buy, listen and enjoy! You won't regret it!

One Of The Better Compilations Out There

Along with the Muddy Waters 4 box set and the Robert Johnson complete set, Biograph might be one of the best compilation sets of any artist. Dylan is a founder of the classic folk rock music, and these 53 tunes are a good example why he is a Hall Of Famer. Dont hesitate download now.

I'll Keep It With Mine

My new favorite Bob Dylan song! I absolutely love this song and never tire of it. I like Nico's cover too. This collection contains many gems that cannot be found elsewhere. Buy it.

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....
