EDITORS’ NOTES

This Bob Dylan career overview doesn’t skimp on the hits—from his protestant folky beginnings (“The Times They Are A-Changin’”) to his late-’60s country crooning (“Lay Lady Lay”) to his most action-packed (“Hurricane,” the punchy ode to boxer Rubin Carter). Also included are a handful of his greatest moments that aren’t usually recognized, like the optimistically melancholic “Not Dark Yet,” the refined and airy “Jokerman,” and the gently rolling lament “Mississippi.” The set finishes on 2006’s fittingly tender “When the Deal Goes Down.”

Nice collection for casual fans

This is obviously missing many of Dylans’ great performances, but let’s face it, no one album could ever do the man's career justice. If you’re just looking for the basics- the songs you already know and love- this one is pretty tough to beat and the price is certainly right.

There may never be a better singer songwriter than Bob

Bob Dylan *is* Rock and Roll. He's the one singer/songwriter most often mentioned in history textbooks recording 20th century culture. This album is a good survey and a good sample of must-have Dylan songs.
