This collection of unrelesed and alternate versions of songs is an awesome collection. It does beg the question, why weren't these songs included on some of the albums they were intended for? Not being a Dylan fan at all when I got this collection I was blown away. I think the second disc contains the best songs. I know everyone has their own favorites for various reasons but the songs that stood out for me are "Walking Down The Line", "Let Me Die In My Footsteps" (on disc 1), "Seven Curses", "Mama, You Been on My Mind", "Subterranean Homesick Blues" (1st take of the song with just bob, his guitar, and harmonica!), "If Not For You" (with George Harrison), and "Nobody 'Cept You" (all on disc 2). I'm sure I could have added almost the whole second disc but these are the songs I fell in love with at first listen. I'm not the biggest fan of Dylan but I feel these songs are amazing. I purchased all of the remastered cds and I'm shocked everytime I hear those albums. Some of those songs should have been replaced by some of the songs on this collection. I especially love the version of "If not for You" with the late George Harrison. It sounds closer to the version Harrison recorded for his album "All Things Must Pass" compared to the version Dylan released on his "New Morning" album. So if anyone is interested in listening to Dylan for the first time, I would highly recomend this collection.
