"Like a Rolling Stone" chosen by Rolling Stone Magazine

Bob Dylan's Greatest Hits is a masterful sampler of Dylan at his absolute peak,
a first-rate summary of his incredible output and best-known songs from his
first seven albums starting with a cut from The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan (1963)
and ending with a selection from Blonde on Blonde (1966). It's hard to find ten
songs that are better and more musically relevant than those on this album. From
folk classics like "The Times They Are A-Changin'" to poetic bluesy rock songs
like "Subterranean Homesick Blues".
Bob Dylan's early days were as tumultuous and groundbreaking as anything else in
the history of popular music, he was the undeniable voice of the '60s and so
many artists have covered songs included on this recording. In 1963, Peter, Paul
and Marry enjoyed a #2 hit single with "Blowin' In the Wind" and in 1965 "Mr.
Tambourine Man" was a #1 hit for The Byrds and the Turtles folk-rock version of
"It Ain't Me Babe" reached #8. The epic "Like A Rolling Stone" was the biggest
chart hit for Dylan himself.
Dylan is now a living legend and recently received the Presidential Medal of
Freedom, America's highest civilian honour. At the award ceremony President
Obama said, "Bob's voice, with its weight, its unique gravel power, was
re-defining not just what music sounded like, but the message it carried and how
it made people feel. There is not a bigger giant in the history of American
The iconic album cover won the 1967 Grammy award for Best Album Cover,

psychedelic poster of Dylan done by Milton Glaser that was included in the

||Not sure if its from the masters, but it sounds darn good!
|Hoffman is notoriously cagey about his sources, or many times has been deceptive. Since the original master mixes dont seem to exist for some of these songs, I think the most likely source for this disc was the Greatest Hits copy reel. That being said -- for the serious Dylan fan -- this sounds awesome. If you arent a serious fan, just get one of Sonys compilations. The remixes that are being used for Dylans CD releases now are almost certainly better-sounding. For the real fan that wants the original mixes sounding as good as possible, this is a real treat -- whichever tape it was mastered from.|
