Biography

BOB DYLAN Biography by Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Bob Dylan's influence on popular music is incalculable. As a songwriter, he pioneered several different schools of pop songwriting, from confessional singer/songwriter to winding, hallucinatory, stream-of-consciousness narratives. As a vocalist, he broke down the notion that a singer must have a conventionally good voice in order to ... Read more in Amazon's Bob Dylan Store

5.0 out of 5 stars Bob's Best "Greatest" December 22, 2000
Format:Audio CD
"Bob Dylan's Greatest Hits Volume II" is as close to perfection as two compact discs can get. Dylan's first Greatest Hits collection gathered most of his most well know songs from the 1960s, while this volume scoops up the rest. A number of these songs were big hits for other artists, including "All I Really Want to Do" (The Byrds), "All Along the Watchtower" (Jimi Hendrix) and "The Mighty Quinn" (Manfred Mann). Selected from Dylan's incredible run of top notch 60's albums, this collection features both accoustic and electric tracks. There are sentimental romantic ballads ("Lay Lady Lay," "Tonight I'll Be Staying Here With You") and verbose tounge twisting rants ("Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues," ""It's All Over Now, Baby Blue"). There are angry political rants ("Maggie's Farm," "A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall") and spiritually uplifting songs ("I Shall Be Released," "When I Paint My Masterpiece"). Bob shows both his folkie side and his rock and roll side and he's never been in better (uh) voice.
This is the definitive collection from Bob Dylan's classic period and is essential for any rock fan who does not own the original Dylan albums.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth it for remastering alone. Plus rare songs. August 23, 2000
Format:Audio CD
I think this album along with the first Greatest Hits and Street Legal are Sony/Columbia initial endeavors to remaster the entire Dylan catalog. Considering I have about 30 of his CDs this prospect is both intriguing and frightening. I picked up this disc partially because I'm a Dylan completist and partially to hear these songs in remastered glory. I'm impressed. Since most of these songs are of late 60s vintage they have a countryish lean. What immediately caught my attention was how gorgeous the steel pedal guitars were on "Lay Lady Lay" and "I'll Be Your Baby Tonight". The most notable sonic improvement, however, belongs to "Stuck Inside of Mobile With the Memphis Blues Again" from the classic but shoddy sounding (on CD) Blonde on Blonde.
Aside from the sound quality this is just a great collection of songs. Most were made famous by other artits, but nearly all of Bob's versions remain definitive. The other reason to buy this cd is that five of the tracks are unique to this edition. "Watching the River Flow", "When I Paint My Masterpiece," and "Tomorrow is A Long Time" don't appear anywhere else and "You Ain't Goin' Nowhere" and "Down in the Flood" are different takes than heard on "The Basement Tapes".
All in all a excellent package and probably the best introduction to Dylan outside of his egregiously famous songs (Found on Greatest Hits Vol. 1).

5.0 out of 5 stars It doesn't get much better than this August 6, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Bob Dylan's greatest hits volume two is not only the best Bob Dylan compilation available, but also possibly the best compliation cd available by any artist. Top to bottom this is one of the finest CD's I own. Most of the songs are familar even to the casual Bob Dylan fan, plus some of the less familar tracks are some of the best on the CD. "Tomorrow is a long time", "Crash on the Levee" and a different version of "You ain't going nowhere" are three highlights of the disc. If you like Dylan, even a little, I cannot more strongly reccomend this compilation. BUY THIS CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dylans Greatest Collage August 27, 2005
Format:Audio CD
When I first obtained this Collection in the early 70's as a raw juvenile, it was the one tape among hundreds that I never grew tired of listening to, partially because of the sheer range of styles and mainly because of the calibre of the songs included.This latest remastering opens up the sound even more so and lets the joy of songs like "If not for You" and "I'll Be Your Baby Tonight" shine out like beacons in a fog.The bitter sweet emotion of "Don't think Twice..." and "Tomorrow is a Long Time" almost caused my own heart to break as I felt the pain and longing in the lines of those songs. Even today after 30 odd years since I first heard this collection,I still feel a little lump in my throat when I hear them again. Very few records can connect with people on this level but this is one of them and is an essential item in any real music lover's collection!A true masterpiece!

5.0 out of 5 stars THIS IS ONE BEEFY HITS COLLECTION September 30, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I learned a lot of BOB DYLAN from this hits package. While nowadays there are lots of DYLAN hits packages to choose from that span a lot more of his career (this was released in '71) only on this one do you get a hand picked barrel of tunes from the man himself.

And he obviously knew what he wanted on this thing. It is a volume two so all the obvious sixties hits are on volume one. You wont get ROLLING STONE or RAINY DAY WOMEN (aka Everybody must get stoned) but you do get A.) the big hits from 67-71, B.) the rest of the hits from 62-66, and C.) stuff that was unrelesed prior to this record.... So what does that mean?

Well in the A.) category you get: the countrified LAY LADY LAY (sweet) you get ALL ALONG THE WATCHTOWER (one of his most recognized songs ever via Hendrix) the very fun pair of I'LL BE YOUR BABY and TONIGHT I'LL BE STAYING HERE, you get the sincere warmer IF NOT FOR YOU and the also very fun QUINN THE ESKIMO... nice selection.

In the B.) category you get the ones that couldn't fit on the first HITS like DONT THINK TWICE which is better than that other song from FREEWHEELIN' the one about the wind, you know, and how its blowin. MAGGIES FARM, SHE BELONGS TO ME, ALL I REALLY WANT TO DO, one of the goods from Another Side, plus the killer tunes HARD RAIN, TOM THUMBS and BABY BLUE, all very necessary.

The highlights though are the "new" stuff in C.) WATCHING THE RIVER FLOW is one of my personal faves, really jams, WHEN I PAINT MY MASTERPEICE and the very awesome basement tape YOU AIN'T GOING NOWHERE; that one also another fave of mine recorded with The Band.

This is a unique package. If you are a casual DYLAN fan, but are looking for something a little bit different than what everyone else has- I'd go with this. Its a very ecclectic collection of early DYLAN.
