For the casual fan set on owning just one hits collection that contains the gist of Dylan's best from the '60s through the '90s, the search is over. For those looking to get gems like 'Lay Lady Lay', 'Knockin' On Heaven's Door', 'Like A Rolling Stone', 'Gotta Serve Somebody', 'Blowin' In The Wind' and 'All Along The Watchtower' all on one CD, this import-only release is perfect! To get all of those hits and most of the others on this set, you'd have to buy all three of Columbia's U.S. 'Best Of' compilations (a total of $47). With this retrospective you get the very best of those three overviews --but on one disc & for well less than half the price!

Excellent Volume 1 of Dylan's Best
Paul Allaer | Cincinnati | 02/14/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)
"There have been many Bob Dylan greatest hits compilations over the years, and no major excuse is needed for yet another one. The excuse for this particular compilation, originally released in 1997, was the prominent use of several Dylan songs in the movie "Jerry Maguire", including "Shelter from the Storm" in a (slightly) different version from the one on "Blood on the Tracks".
"The Best of Bob Dylan" (18 tracks, 76 min.) provides a chronological overview of his biggest hits and best known songs, including "Blowin' in the Wind", "Like a Rolling Stone", "Lay Lady Lay", "Knockin' on Heaven's Door", Tangled Up in Blue", and the latter day tracks "Jokerman" and "Everything is Broken". The afore-mentioned "Shelter from the Storm" closes the album. Three years later, this set would be followed by the equally excellent "Best of, Volume 2". The remastered sound is fabulous. Regretfully there are no detailed liner notes. Taken together, Volume 1 and Volume 2 of "The Best of Bob Dylan" provide a truly "Essential Bob Dylan" overview.
The Best - like it says...

"The customer couldn't have been more right - this definitely IS the best place for new fans to start listening to Bob Dylan. With all the widely known hits like "Blowin' in the Wind", "Mr. Tambourine Man" and "Knockin' on Heaven's Door" to less known songs such as "Lay Lady Lay" and "Tangled Up in Blue", 'The Best of Bob Dylan' is definitely a collection of his best!
The quality of the tracks is excellent; great remasters!
I recommend this to everybody looking for some great music."
