The Best of Bob Dylan is a single-disc compilation album containing songs by Bob Dylan, released on November 15, 2005. It is an abbreviation of The Essential Bob Dylan, though, like the U.K. "Best of Dylan" compilations, it is not considered a part of Dylan's official discography.
The Best of Bob Dylan is available in a digipak format, in an attempt to imitate a vinyl record. The album has liner notes written by Bill Flanagan, with commentary on each of the album's tracks. In these notes, it is stated that the album is meant to be a sampler of Dylan's material for people who are now beginning to express interest.
All songs by Bob Dylan, except for the Dylan-Levy collaboration Hurricane.
