Released one year after his praised Blonde On Blonde [MOVLP245] album from 1966 and his motorcycle accident of that summer, Bob Dylan's Greatest Hits is the first compilation album by American singer-songwriter Bob Dylan, released in 1967. The album contains every Top 40 single Dylan enjoyed through 1967. It peaked at #10 on the Pop album chart in the United States, and went to #3 on the album chart in the United Kingdom. Certified five times platinum by the RIAA, it is his best-selling album in the U.S.
It is worth noting that "The Times They Are a-Changin'" made it to #9 as a single release in the United Kingdom and "Blowin' in the Wind" became a #2 hit single for Peter, Paul and Mary in 1963. The remaining six tracks all made the Billboard Top 40 in 1965 and 1966. A truncated rock and roll version of "Mr. Tambourine Man" had been a number one hit for The Byrds in the summer of 1965, and the Turtles took a folk-rock version of "It Ain't Me Babe" to #8 the same year.
The cover photograph and design won the 1967 Grammy award for "Best Album Cover, Photography".
