I guess someone, somewhere, decided there should be a compilation from Dylan which featured his entire career crammed onto one disc. Not really a good idea. There's simply too much to choose from, so too much is missing. The main criticism of his Essential collection was that two discs weren't enough, so only one seems pretty silly. He would fix this a few years later by going the "other" way (i.e. adding a disc instead of subtracting one). There are many better compilations out there. Much better ones.
