Editors’ Notes

Released by Bob Dylan's record label as he recuperated from his notorious motorcycle accident, Bob Dylan's Greatest Hits marks the end of the first phase of his career. It was an intense ride, with Dylan starting as an acoustic folk troubadour and ending with one of the loudest and most raucous hard rock tours of its day. This 10-song summary barely scratches the surface of what made Dylan a living legend, but it was, at the time, the first album to include the 1966 single-only "Positively Fourth Street." Three others songs are from 1966's Blonde on Blonde, all among the shorter and catchier tunes from that album. Acoustic Dylan is represented by four cuts. The sociopolitical numbers "Blowin' in the Wind" and "The Times They Are A-Changin'" sound as if they were from another era entirely—surely more than just the four to five years old they were at the time—so great is the artistic leap to the surrealist "Mr. Tambourine Man" and the electric "Subterranean Homesick Blues." As a thumbnail sketch of a great artist, this album serves its purpose well.

Customer Reviews

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.


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.

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....
