Offered for sale is a 1970s pressing of the 1967 LP Bob Dylan’s Greatest Hits by Bob Dylan, including the original shrink wrap, hype sticker, and poster.
About this copy: This copy of Bob Dylan’s Greatest Hits is a 1970s pressing, but one that still included the poster.
The cover is close to M-, but has a bit of wear at the corners. The original shrink wrap is still included, and the hype sticker that says “Contains Full-Color Dylan Wall Poster” is still attached.
The disc is VG++, with a couple of sleeve scuffs. The record clearly has had little play.
The poster measures 33″x22″ and is VG+, with a 1 1/2″ tear in the top seam and a couple of tack holes in the two upper corners. The poster has also yellowed a bit.
A nice copy of a terrific LP.
Bob Dylan took some time off after releasing Blonde on Blonde in 1966, largely because he was recovering from a motorcycle accident. Columbia records took advantage of his time off by releasing his first compilation LP, Bob Dylan’s Greatest Hits. While the album was originally issued in both mono and stereo, the mono pressings were only available for about a year before being deleted with all other mono titles in Columbia’s catalog in early 1968.
Arriving in 1967, Greatest Hits does an excellent job of summarizing Dylan’s best-known songs from his first seven albums. At just ten songs, it’s a little brief, and the song selection may be a little predictable, but that’s actually not a bad thing, since this provides a nice sampler for the curious and casual listener, as it boasts standards from “Blowin’ in the Wind” to “Like a Rolling Stone.”
