Bob Dylan's Greatest Hits, Vol. 3

Editors’ Notes

Coming 23 years after Greatest Hits, Vol. 2, Vol. 3 summarizes the period of 1973-1989 in Bob Dylan's long career. It's another thumbnail sketch, with obvious hits and radio staples sitting next to a few rarities and odd choices. No Dylan fan would argue with the inclusion of "Knockin' on Heaven's Door," "Tangled Up in Blue," "Hurricane," "Gotta Serve Somebody," or "Jokerman." They were all released as singles and garnered plenty of airplay. "Changing of the Guards" never charted but was the single from the critically reassessed Street Legal album. Among the more peculiar picks are the excellent and underrated "The Groom's Still Waiting at the Altar," which had been a b-side before being added to CD copies of Shot of Love, and "Silvio," a tune written with Grateful Dead lyricist Robert Hunter for the much-maligned Down in the Groove album. "Series of Dreams" (an outtake from 1989's Oh Mercy), had been issued on The Bootleg Series, Vol. 1-3 (Rare and Unreleased) 1961-1991, while "Dignity," also from those sessions, saw its first album appearance here.

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.

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....
