Bob Dylan: Greatest Hits, Vol. 3
Dylan's first greatest hits album was released in 1967, and his second in 1971. Twenty-three
years later comes his third, and it's a reasonable compilation of the better-known songs be has produced over
the period, notably standards like "Knockin' On Heaven's Door" and "Forever Young," Dylan chart hits like
"Tangled Up In Blue" and "Hurricane," songs that have been covered extensively by other singers, such as
"Ring Them Bells," and some of the better album tracks, such as "Changing Of The Guard" and "Brownsville
Girl." In an effort to span the period, a few lesser, later songs, such as "Silvio" and "Under The Red Sky" are
included, while some stronger, earlier songs are not ("Simple Twist Of Fate," "Senor," "Emotionally Yours,"
and "Everything Is Broken"). But on the whole, the selection is excellent, and this is the album to get for that
Dylan fan who stopped listening to him at the end of the '60s. (Includes the previously unreleased 1989 track
The Band's contribution here is on "Forever Young" from the 1974 Band/Dylan album Planet Waves.
