It is also a great CD for young kids just getting their first taste of Dylan's music.

If you are curious about Bob Dylan and unfamiliar with his music, this is the CD I would recommend you listen to.

When you buy an artist's greatest hits album, that's what you get - two or three good songs.

Format: Audio CD
Bob Dylan recorded so many classic songs in the 1960s that trying to pick out a single disc's worth as being definitive is a fool's errand at best. Fortunately, "Bob Dylan's Greatest Hits" was follwed by a double disc "Volume 2" that together make for two incredibly strong anthology albums. This album does contain perhaps the most well known songs of Dylan's incredible output from the 60's, though songs like "Mr. Tamborine Man" (The Byrds) and "It Ain't Me Babe" (The Turtles) were chart hits for other artists. The epic "Like a Rolling Stone" was the biggest chart hit for Dylan himeslf, while "Blowin' in the Wind" and "The Times They are a-Changing" came to define the protest generation. "Positively 4th Street" is one of the most biting putdowns ever recorded while on "I Want You" and "Just Like a Woman" Bob proved he can write great romantic songs as well.
Overall, this is a great disc to start your Dylan collection and will ultimately leave you wanting more.

No point in going over each song. There is no greatest hit collection to compare to this one. If you're clueless to Dylan and his music, and you're a thinking human being with the slightest sense of humanity and poetry in your soul, buy it, listen to it, listen to it, listen to it. He was the voice of the 60's that stretches beyond, above, behind and everywhere else. So many have given their interpretations of his songs. I never get tired of hearing a new Dylan song re-interpreted. I'm energized when I hear a Dylan tune on the radio. I mean, how can you not feel the eternal pain of "Blowin' In The Wind", the TRUTH of "Like A Rolling Stone", the poetry of "Mr. Tambourine Man", the cutting insights of "It Aint Me Babe", the words of "Positively 4th Street". There is no replacement "singer" or "writer" to compare to Dylan. He changed all of us in ways we have all lost sight of. Thanks, Bob.

Those who bash this best-of for not being complete enough are, I think, missing the point; "Greatest Hits" was never intended to be anything like a definitive overview of Dylan's early work. It was, quite simply, an attempt by Columbia Records to cash in on a hot talent and, simultaneously, provide consumers with "new" product while the artist himself pieced himself back together (physically, mentally, and artistically). Crass? Exploitative? Shameless? You betcha. But in spite of its unholy origins, "Greatest Hits" works.
For one thing, there's absolutely no filler here; every cut is a stone-cold classic. (Granted, that's not because of any special care on Columbia's part but because Dylan is incapable of writing a totally worthless song.) For another, it functions admirably well as a "starter kit"; I, for one, was first introduced to Dylan's work though this album; if not for "Greatest Hits" to whet my appetite I might never have gone on and discovered his "real" albums.
That said, I have to wonder why Columbia didn't take a little more care with the reissue CD. Sure, the remastered sound is a marked improvement, but why not throw in a few bonus tracks? And couldn't a decent booklet with liner notes and session information have been provided? If and when the rest of Dylan's catalog is reissued, I hope Columbia gives them more the kind of treatment they've given the Byrds and Miles Davis. Those complaints aside, I see no reason to be ashamed of owning, and liking, this CD.

This is a collection of 10 of the greatest anthems of the 1960's - indeed, ever. Here we get a sampling of everything from early folk protest Dylan (Blowin' In The Wind, The Times They Are A-Changin') to the stoned/semi-psychedelic Dylan (Mr. Tambourine Man, Rainy Day Women - better known as "The 'Everybody Must Get Stoned'" song), to sneering electric Dylan (Like A Rolling Stone, Positively Fourth Street.) The album isn't assembled chronologically, neither is it categorized, and the running order makes for an interesting, if somewhat scattershot listen. It gives an interesting (very) brief overview of Dylan's 60's work... though it is BY NO MEANS a full representation of his work from that period. The album was a Record Company idea, put out after Dylan secluded himself from public view (and hence, the recording studio) after his motorcyle accident in '66. Though he had a few bona-fide hit singles (and many, many, many cover versions of his songs have been turned into big hits by other artists), Dylan was never a singles artist. After all, it was Bob - and not Led Zeppelin, as is often stated - who introduced the concept of an album as a flowing complete work, rather than just simply a collection of songs. Thus, the music on this album is absolutely wonderful - some of the best songs of the 20th century - but, please, please, don't take this as the final word on Bob Dylan. You are only depriving yourself of one of the greatest and most valuable artists of our time if you are. If you get it, use it as your intro into the wonderful World of Bob. However, if you're just getting into Bob - and insist on a compilation - then the more recently released Essential Bob Dylan is a better starting place. However, this is still a fine, 5-star album for emphasis and historical perspective.
