Perhaps it was inevitable that Bob Dylan would change direction at the end of the '70s, since he had dabbled in everything from full-on repudiation of his legacy to a quiet embrace of it, to dipping his toe into pure showmanship…
Bob Dylan is an American songwriter, singer, artist, and writer. He has been influential in popular music and culture for more than five decades. Much of his most celebrated work dates from the 1960s, when his songs chronicled social unrest. Early songs such as "Blowin' in the Wind" and "The Times They Are a-Changin'" became anthems for the American civil rights and anti-war movements.

Bob Dylan is not a blues musician, of course, and this album is not, as its title might imply, a disc on which he performs a set of traditional blues songs. It is, rather, a compilation of previously released Dylan originals spanning more than 35 years that illustrates the influence of the blues on his music.
The phenomenal Bob Dylan season continues with the first ever career-spanning single disc greatest hits collection from one of the most fascinating and influential artists to emerge form the 20th century. Highlights include 'Blowin In The Wind', 'Mr. Tambourine Man', 'Like A Rolling Stone' and more.
This superb 3 CD set was originally released by Doberman, who professionally manufactured the inserts & booklets. With the original issued package, the discs were CD-r's with very nice paper labels. Doberman had released only glass mastered titles in the past, and some of their newest releases are once again appearing on glass mastered CDs. The three CDs were then pressed by the wonderful people at Scorpio, who released them on 24kt gold discs. The discs carry a take off of the MFSL gold disc logo.
