I'm always skeptical when an artist releases and re-releases and re-re-releases "best of" packages. This one gets it right, though, in a very big way. This is the perfect compilation of three discs worth of the entire Bob Dylan collection. Most of the hits are here, and, fortunately, he includes a lot of strong material from his latter days which was critically acclaimed, even though he never sold that well, nor was his material as well known.

Although there may be one or two songs missing from your personal favorites, there's simply not a bad song on here - even during the above mentioned lesser known periods. It's chronological, too, which is how it should be with an artist like Bob Dylan. Someone finally got it right.
