This time selected and programmed by the man himself, the two-disc second installment in Dylan'sGreatest Hitsseries comes off as much more idiosyncratic than its brother, famed songs ("Lay Lady Lay," "A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall") … see full wiki

It Has A Great Flow

  • Sep 18, 2003
This is an excellent start for someone interested in the music of Bob Dylan. This two CD set flows nicely from acoustic to rock to country and a few oddball tracks in between. Watching The River Flow is a great opener with some awesome guitar and keyboard playing. Dylan had the good sense to emply some top musicians on many of his tracks.

Then of course there is the long winded but strong lyrical epic Stuck Inside A Mobile With The Memphis Blues Again. Gosh even that title is long. But the words are so so cool with Bobby Boy getting his eyelids smoked and cigarette punched.

So many other gems on this near masterpiece. How about When I Paint My Masterpiece with searing vocals. Down In The Flood is another tune loaded with spunk and verve. The key to the value of this recording is balance as one can surely get a picture of Bob Dylan's vivid imagery.

Like I said before, this is a good place to start for newbies. However, established fans of the man who want a extensive summary of his quality years can do little wrong with this collection.
