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

5.0 out of 5 stars Glaring omission from an ace set. 7 Oct 2006
Format:Audio CD
If you want a great intro to Dylan, this is a pretty good collection. Be aware, however, that one of his finest, spiky, bitter and twisted songs, "Positively 4th Street", ought to be on here (it's on the vinyl) but isn't. It was a single release from 1965, and still gets airplay from the better DJs; if you like the rest of these songs, and you hear "4th Street" on the radio, you'll want to get it too. Sadly you won't find it easily; it's on the later "Essential" compilation, and it's on Biograph, but that's it, CD-wise. So compare the tracklistings carefully before you choose.

By Daniel Jolley HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
I was busy learning how to breathe and walk about the time this second Greatest Hits album was released in 1971, so this period of Bob Dylan’s career was quite unknown to me when I became a fan as a teenager. I was familiar with early classics such as Blowin’ in the Wind and Like a Rolling Stone, but the songs featured on this Greatest Hits Volume 2 package have been somewhat overlooked over the years. What few Dylan songs I would hear on the radio were the early wonders featured on the original Greatest Hits album. Thus, this 2-CD set of songs has helped fill a real void in my musical knowledge and experience. Dylan’s remarkable versatility and diverse means of delivering his message are revealed in this collection of songs hand-picked by the man himself. There is great variety here, from up-tempo tracks such as Maggie’s Farm and The Mighty Quinn to slow, romantic ballads like Tonight I’ll Be Staying Here With You and If Not For You to long, story-telling songs such as Just Like Tom Thumb’s Blues and A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall which bear traces of stream-of-consciousness revelatory wonder. What strikes me the most here, though, is the dramatic difference in Dylan’s vocal delivery. Tunes such as Lay, Lady, Lay and Tonight I’ll Be Staying Here With You feature a rather smooth, even refined voice that bears only a slight resemblance to the gritty vocals of Dylan’s youth and the gravelly potency of his later releases.
The very notion of “greatest hits” almost seems beneath Dylan’s standards. A Dylan “hit” is not necessarily a song that topped the charts; each of these songs is a hit because of the incredible writing and singing that gave it life.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the strongest compilation albums of all time 15 April 2003
By Docendo Discimus TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
The 21 tracks on this 1972 release are the same as on 1971's "Greatest Hits, vol. II", and both albums are greatest hits-compilations only in the loosest sense of the word.
1966's "Greatest Hits" was excactly that, Dylan's greatest hits, but this is much more - and in a way even better.
"More Greatest Hits" compile genuine hit singles, rarities and album tracks, making this double album one of the strongest releases in the Dylan catalogue.It starts off with the non-album track "Watching The River Flow" (covered by Joe Cocker among others), which is one of Dylan's best rock songs, and one of the highlights of the album (well, they're pretty much all highlights). And it's this mixture of singles and non-singles that makes this such a fabulous album...it shows the incredible breadth and depth of Dylan's talent much better than a literal hits compilation could have done.
Other highlights include "Stuck Inside Of Mobile With The Memphis Blues Again" (one of the longer titles in popular music!), a live version of another non-LP track, "When I Paint My Masterpiece", the simple, country-ish "I'll Be Your Baby Tonight", and "It's All Over Now, Baby Blue". But as I said, they're really all highlights. "My Back Pages", "You Ain't Goin' Nowhere", "I Shall Be Released", "If Not For You", "Lay, Lady, Lay", "Tonight I'll Be Staying Here With You", "The Mighty Quinn"....well, you get the picture.
On most of these songs, Dylan is backed by other musicians, making them more immediately accessible than his earliest, sometimes rather harsh folk songs.
All in all, this is a super CD, and should not be missed. "More Greatest Hits" features some of the very best songs recorded by popular music's greatest and most versatile talent, and it proves that there was much, much more to Bob Dylan than just an angry protest singer with a harmonica rack and a handful of weird, stream-of-consciousness narratives.

By Og Oggilby VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
'Greatest Hits' is a bit of a misnomer, Bob Dylan hardly being a 'hit singles' artist, of course. But, this is a fine collecetion of material, up to the time of its release - 1971. It's notable insofar as it includes the likes of the single-only 'Watching The River Flow' which was Bob in a more rockin' mode, and some live rarities, including 'Tomorrow Is A Long Time', recorded by Elvis Presley, of course. This comp includes examples of Dylan the 'protest singer', Dylan the crooner, but most of all, Dylan in all his innovative, stream-of-consciousness lyricist finery. It's also great fun, too, and you will have fun exploring some of the greatest pop music of the late twentieth century. An endlessly rewarding listen.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Finest Of All Dylan Compilations 6 Sep 2000
Format:Audio CD
Though this is one of the less purchased compilations, this is perhaps the one that best showcases Dylan's varied talents. "More Greatest Hits" has tracks from nearly all of the albums up to "New Morning" and although it hasn't got the early hits like "Blowin' In The Wind" and "Like A Rolling Stone", it has the tracks that should have been on the 1966 "Greatest Hits" but weren't, like "Don't Think Twice" and "Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues". Released in 1971 it mysteriously duplicates one track from the first greatest hits "Positively 4th Street" but this is more than compensated by the inclusion of classic Dylan like "Stuck Inside Of Mobile..." and "A Hard Rain". On top of this it includes the otherwise unavailable single "Watching The River Flow", different versions of "I Shall Be Released", "You Ain't Goin' Nowhere" and "Down In The Flood" and two 'new' tracks, "Tomorrow Is A Long Time" and "When I Paint My Masterpiece".
