If you've never listened to Bob Dylan before you should start with this album. The songs on this album run from 1997 to 2006 and include some of his most relevent or current music. Some of these songs were produced by Daniel Lanois who produces U2 among other groups. Give it a listen you'll be surprised. The band is exceptional and probably one of the best group of musicians you can find on any album. Dylan's voice is better than it has ever been except for his early years. You'll be able to understand what he is saying!

These performances are compelling and ironically the whole album feels more cohesive, if somewhat darker, than any of his recent non-bootleg albums. Aside from the scholarly interest of hearing the artist work through several different approaches to the same material, I found the music just mesmerizing. One of his best albums.

I would certainly agree with the last reviewer that this is a cohesive effort. When you consider that the songs were recorded over 17 years, the unity is surprising. In many cases these versions are as good or better than the released tracks. The final number, 'Cross the Green Mountain, may be one of the greatest songs Dylan has ever put on tape. It is Knockin' on Heaven's Door filtered through the Civil War and rivals the Band's The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down for the title of best rock song about that conflict.

Bob Dylan is my favorite singer since 1965. I have an extensive Dylan music collection and have seen him in concert at least 4 times. This album was a great surprise-really enjoyed it on many levels. If you like Dylan, I think you will like this album!

Tell-Tale Signs. My new favorite Dylan album. I keep putting it back on and listening and re-discovering Dylan. He is a giant. I've been a fan since the 60's.
