This little 3-disc gem is just the job if, like me, you need to familiarise yourself with some of the best of Dylan from the 80's onwards while at the same time refamiliarising yourself with his earlier stuff which has somehow got lost in the shuffle from vinyl to cassette to CD.
I always had affection for Jokerman, but now I'm also aware of how great tracks like Sweetheart Like You, Blind Willie McTell and pretty much everything else on disc 3 is. I already knew this about Dylan's 60's and 70's stuff, and now it occurs to me that disc 3 might represent the 80's exclusively (there is a woeful shortage of information included here regarding this packages contents).
But at less than a fiver who's complaining?

This 3 disc CD covers Dylan's music from the beginning of his career in the early sixties to his latest offerings and covers the majority of his better known work during this period. This would make an excellent starter CD for someone new to Dylan or as a throw it in the car CD for when you are driving. Highly recommended.

This is an excellent Dylan compilation at a truly budget price. I own most of these tracks on other LPs and CDs and even tapes, but it is good to get them again as clean recordings in a well thought out chronical compilation.

Forget the greatest hits collections if you already own a fair selection of your preferred Dylan CDs. Instead if you just want an interesting compilation to listen to, then this is the one (together with a recommended prior single CD compilation "Dylan's Blues" ) in having a career spanning perspective of key periods plus very eclectic selections! Also the set currently selling at £1 per CD makes it truly amazing value.

The three CDs are in chronological order, the first covering the '60s, the second the '70s and the third the "80s & 90s. The choice is not the usual fare - for example the first electric LP "Bringing it all back home" is represented by two lengthy acoustic tracks ("Mr. Tambourine Man" and "It's alright Ma (I'm only bleeding") plus the set includes some nice non-LP singles (including "Positively 4th Street" and "Watching the River Flow"). Even the third CD covering the less generally popular releases of recent years is a very varied and unusual selection, including two alternative versions to prior releases ("Most of the time" and "Dignity"). Inevitably people will complain about certain choices or tracks omitted but that is the inevitable issue faced when buying somebody else's selections - instead simply enjoy the sheer eclecticism on show here.

If you ever wanted to show somebody how varied and continually changing Dylan has been across his career or alternatively want a pre-prepared CD selection to listen to in the car or elsewhere then I cannot recommend this compilation enough!

No Dylan compilation can ever satisfy a true fan, but this one does a good job of gathering together Bob's best known songs with a few surprises. The 3:54 version of Positively 4th Street is the stereo version of the original single which is now to be found on CD only on 1985's "Biograph" and on the non-US release "The Best Of Bob Dylan Vol. 2" (The stereo version on the 2012 US-released remastered "Bob Dylan's Greatest Hits" is a longer mix at 4:12); Forever Young is unusually, the "fast" version from "Planet Waves"; Changing Of The Guards is the 7:03 version from the 1999 remastered version of "Street-Legal"; Series Of Dreams and Most Of The Time are alternate versions from 2008's "The Bootleg Series Vol. 8 - Tell Tale Signs: Rare And Unreleased 1989-2006"; Dignity is not the 1994 Brendan O'Brien remixed version for "Greatest Hits Vol. 3", but from the 550 Music/Sony Music Soundtrax compilation "Touched By An Angel: The Album", 1998. It was later included on the 2000 European/Japanese Columbia compilations "The Best Of Bob Dylan Vol. 2". So, a good budget buy.
