Limited edition Japanese pressing of the remastered 1971 album features 2 CD''s with the 21 original tracks packaged in a miniature LP sleeve. Sony. 2005.
This time selected and programmed by the man himself, the two-disc second installment in Dylan''s Greatest Hits series comes off as much more idiosyncratic than its brother, famed songs ("Lay Lady Lay," "A Hard Rain''s A-Gonna Fall") notwithstanding. An even richer cut-by-cut listen than the earlier best-of, this 1971 set masterfully casts the classics into new light and adds previously non-LP singles (the smashing "Watching the River Flow," with the Amazon.com fave line "People disagreein'' just about everywhere you look / Makes you wanna stop and read a book; let''s have lunch, Bob"), a then-unheard live 1963 "Tomorrow Is a Long Time," and new, stunning, off-the-cuff takes of "I Shall Be Released," "You Ain''t Goin'' Nowhere," and "Down in the Flood." --Rickey Wright
