Truly a comprehensive greatest hits collection. Big time fan may want to pick up some original recordings, but for me this one has almost everything I need. The ommission of Stuck Inside A Mobile is a bit glaring. However, Tangled Up In Blue, Forever Young, and Don't Think Twice Its Allright are true classics which are worth the list price of the CD. Many of Dylan's other classic tunes are on here as well as some stellar work from his later release-Jokerman, Things Have Changed, Silvio, Serve Somebody, and Not Dark Yet. This will not dissappoint you unless you are a hardcore Dylan fan. But if you are you probably should get most of his original recordings anyway.
