Biography

BOB DYLAN Biography by Stephen Thomas Erlewine
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 ... Read more in Amazon's Bob Dylan Store

Product Description

Bob Dylan - Bob Dylan : Greatest Hits

Amazon.co.uk

Then a holding action while Dylan unloaded his head after his May 1966 motorcycle crash, now a nostalgia merit badge for boomers and a course in Dylan 101 for newcomers, Greatest Hits stands up remarkably well as a listening experience. Smartly programmed to ride all over any residual worries about acoustic-vs.-electric authenticity--in fact, blowing a raspberry in their face by opening with the Salvation-Army-band blast of "Rainy Day Women #12 and 35"--this best-of stacks smashes and protest anthems together in celebration of a pop star like no other before. --Rickey Wright

Dylan purists used to frown on this collection when it was first released in the 1960s, since he wasn't a singles artist and perhaps believing that it somehow cheapened his work. I disagree. This was my introduction to his music and it still serves as a superb anthology of his early masterpieces. Here you most of them together: Blowin' In The Wind and The Times They Are A Changin' where he sounds like a latterday prophet, the beautiful and poetic Mr Tambourine Man with its vivid imagery, the buoyant She Belongs To Me and the lilting I Want You, the bluesy It's All Over Now Baby Blue and the other classics Like A Rolling Stone and Just Like A Woman. Dylan's a very prolific singer/songwriter and created a magnificent body of work in the decades following the 60s, but these early masterpieces still exude a unique charm for their authenticity and originality. I recommend this brilliantly remastered CD as well as More Greatest Hits for a thorough collection of Dylan's legendary early work.

Making a greatest hits LP for Bob Dylan was always going to be tough, as his canon contains such a plethora of songs worthy of inclusion. Although not containing many songs I would wish to see, this collections is a good starting point for those unfamiliar with Dylan's work to explore. Covering his first seven albums, up to the career apex of Blonde on Blonde, the greatest hits charts his development from folk singer into the electric rock music he embraced during the mid sixties.
If you are new to Dylan this is a perfect introduction (although it is worth remembering the amount of stupendous songs, such as 'visions of Johanna', that do not appear). If you are wishing to investigate further I would look to buy ‘Blonde on Blonde’, ‘Highway 61’ (both terrific challenging and intelligent rock albums), ‘the times they are a changin’ (Man, he was annoyed), ‘Blood on the tracks’ (depressing) and if you want some unchallenging, relaxing, Country, fun. ‘Nashville skyline’

I was about ten, it was a sunday evening and it suddenly occured to my dad to put on some music, he takes from the shelf this album and says "This is a man who alot of people think of as being as good as the beatles" at the time I laughed i thought no-one could be as good as the beatles, the first track came on (Blowin' in the wind) and to be perfectly honest i wasn't incredibly impressed I thought the lyrics were great and that it was a solid tune but not as good as the beatles, my opinion started to change, however, by track 3 (mr tambourine man) the words were unbelievable and the tune was great. By the end I was intregged and decided that Dylan was great.
Now have about ten bob Dylan albums and he remains my favourite ever musician, music means everthing to me, im a fanatic not just about Dylan but about music in general. I dont think, however, that it would be quite the same without this album. Its not only a great introduction to Dylan its a great Introduction to Music in general and play this to any kid like it was for me and you can bet it'll have a fairly similar effect.

This is a great album to play in the car, no skipping necessary. From 'Blowin' In the Wind' to 'I Want you' this album takes you through the hits of his great career and you can never get bored. It is a real Sunday afternoon listen, just to relax or sing along to. I would recommend this to anyone that hasn't heard much of Bob and want a good all-round feel to what all the fuss is about.

When I was 12 I think or maybe 13 back in (well never mind) I bought this album. It was just released then and I played it into oblivion.I have most of his CD's now but in many ways this compilation has a special place for me. Of course as man who has lived with Dylan all my life I want you to buy certain albums way and beyond this. But as a starting point for Dylan there is no simpler, easier way in. Buy it.

Released in 1967, 'Bob Dylan Greatest Hits' was the first compilation of Bob Dylan's music. Riding high on hits, it's an excellent summary of the prolific singer/songwriter's best-known songs from of his first seven albums. Although there are now much more extensive collections out there, this was the first CD I purchased of Dylan's work, and I still regard it as an excellent overview of this talented artist's early years. He certainly knew how to write a good song, and the gems on this classic greatest hits album are the proof of this.

Bob Dylan is one of those iconic musical figures whom I had always intended to listen to, but somehow I had never got round to doing so. Buying his greatest hits album seemed like a good introduction and it proved to be so. I hadn't really appreciated what a fabulous song writer he is - so many great songs all on the same album. I loved the album and intend to buy more Dylan albums. I want to hear some of his later work as well as his early stuff. Bob Dylan should be part of everyone's musical education and mine is just beginning.
