AllMusic Review by

This collection combines the Bob Dylan albums The Freewheelin' Bob Dylan from 1963 with 1964's The Times They Are A-Changin' and Another Side of Bob Dylan in a long box set that presents a fascinating progression from Dylan's pure folk beginnings through the brilliant, innovative, and startlingly surreal narratives that led up to his electric breakthrough on Bringing It All Back Home from 1965. To say that these three albums are indispensable is an understatement, and this set affords a quick and easy way to get all three in one purchase, although for many the long box packaging may be a drawback (Columbia wisely recognized this by also issuing the same collection in the more standard short box format later in 2005).
