This 3 disc Dylan cd set seems like a final greatest hits and it really is staggering in it's content. Having bought No direction home which has a lot of live and home recorded songs I find the Dylan 3 cd offering complementary.

Includes his early acoustic folk songs from the 1962 self-titled album with Song to Woody and the acoustic blockbusters from the Freewheelin' Bob Dylan and the Times they are a changin' albums through to his later hits. Immense in the scale of his catalogue worth buying.

This is the first time I have bought a Dylan recording and apart from his very well-known hits I had never heard much else of his. What a great guy!! I love every minute of this 3CD set and will now be looking for some of his other recordings. A very refreshing, exciting experience and very humbling as I'm now over 70 years old. What a gap in my education - but it's about to be rectified!!

An excellent overview of Dylan's impressive career, with each disc covering, more or less, its distinctive phases. Most of the well known, early to mid-sixties, songs are on disc one, but there's plenty worth investigating in the later material on disc three. (And, DJ, 'Jokerman' is included - track 15 on disc 2!). While the remastering is a little murky in places (why do record companies try to make CDs sound like vinyl? They're not!), this is a great selection from one of the most iconic performers ever, at a very reasonable price.

As a rule, compilations have two audiences - completists and casual fans. Dylan, the latest in a long line of Bob Dylan compilations, is unique in that it's not for either, but for a semi-casual fan who has all of Dylan's classic albums but doesn't want to filter through, say, Knocked Out Loaded to find the diamonds in the rough.

Across a forty-five year recording career (at the time of release), even at his lowest ebb, Dylan had some amazing songs to dig up. The best thing about this compilation is how for the most part, it avoids the obvious - Highway 61 Revisited, Blonde On Blonde and Bringing It All Back Home, as well as Blood On The Tracks are all under-represented. Instead, we have the single best songs from Dylan's worst periods - 'Brownsville Girl' from his appalling 1980s period; the adorable 'Blood In My Eyes' from his 1990s covers albums; 'Changing Of The Guard' from the unloved Street Legal album; 'Blind Willie McTell,' one of his rarities previously only on the Bootleg Series compilation.

If you have all the classic albums and need to know where to go next, then this is your starting point. Alternatively, if you don't want to explore all of Dylan's catalogue, this will give you a reasonable overview in the meantime. In fact, the album is worth it just for the non-album, Oscar-winning 'Things Have Changed,' only available on previous compilations.

getting a comprehensive bob dylan compilation is an almost impossible task. nevertheless this is possibly as comprehensive as it gets considering dylan's made somewhat of a comeback lately with his last 3 albums, plus moonlighting as a radio dj. as dylan's already released 3 'greatest hits' albums along with 'the essential' this may be somewhat of a futile exercise. because he's recorded close to 500 songs, it may have been an idea releasing a compilation of smaller gems, chosen by said listeners. there's still no sign of 'desolation row' or 'every grain of sand' even 'love minus zero'! (name me one person who doesnt like that one?) not to mention my personel favourite 'mississipi' anyway small quibbles considering this is the work of genius in a 3cd boxset straight off the press - until he releases another album that is.

Ignore the quibbles about missing classics or the relative lack of anything on here written and performed after 1976. As the sleeve notes clearly state treat this as a sampler and use it as an excuse to delve back into the originals. Th tracklisting may be familiar but played back to back you are left in doubt that here are some of the powerful songs of the twentieth century. The lyrics stand out in particular from Blowin in the Wind to Just Like a Woman and Hurricane - the story of boxer Reuben Carter wrongly accused of murder. Mr Tambourine Man and All Along the Watchtower were classics for the Byrds and Hendrix but the stripped down originals also stand the test of time. The bonus disc has two versions of the same track Most Likely You Go Your own Way, one a remix from Mark Ronson - not the best thing on here.

As an introduction to the music and poetry of Bob Dylan this collection is only surpassed by 'Biograph' [1985] which went platinum. This is a review of the Deluxe version which comes in a handsome cloth covered box and contains a 36 page booklet as well as each disc being housed in not one but two picture sleeves. The inner sleeve is redolent of old columbia singles sleeves and the outer three sleeves each picture Bob Dylan in a different pose. And though it it doesn't add to playing quality I love the 'retro' 'Vinyl' discs. CDs are often so ugly and souless.Unlike the above reviewer these vinyl look alike will never quite replace the wonder of Dylan on VinylLPs for me and I hope there may be a limited Vinyl LP release of this collection - as there has been with every Bootleg Series and album to date. So much for presentation, 5 out of 5 stars. Contents? I give it 4 Stars because, while there is nothing bad on here, there are tracks that are superfluous given Dylan's vast catalogue.

'The Times They Are A-Changin' might have been sacrificed for 'Only A Pawn In Their Game' 'Restless Farewell' or the Jubilant 'When The Ship Comes In' and the first disc would be better for it. 'Rainy Day Women'is superflous but, more tellingly 'Chimes of Freedom' really should have been added to show new fans just how quickly Dylan was moving lyrically and consciously. 'Just Like A Woman' and 'Most Likely You Go Your Way' could have been ommitted and 'Sad Eyed Lady of The Lowlands' Desolation Row' added - to great effect I think. and so on, and so on.
