The Bob Dylan Complete Album Collection Vol. One is a colossal box set encompassing the entire official discography of the American songwriter-performer who’s revolutionized folk, pop and rock music over the past half century with a profoundly influential catalog of songs and sounds.
Beginning with tracks recorded for his eponymous 1962 Columbia Records debut album, the Bob Dylan Complete Album Collection Vol. One follows Dylan’s restless transformations across six decades as a singer, a songwriter, a concert performer and a studio artist who’s continually finding fresh ways of expressing and exploring the varieties of human experience, worldly and other, with music.
The Bob Dylan Complete Album Collection Vol. One also brings together for the first time, on two “Side Tracks” discs, a wealth of previously released non-album singles, tracks from Biograph and other compilations, songs from films and more.
The collection contains 35 studio titles (including the first-ever North American release of 1973’s Dylan album on CD), 6 live albums, the 2-CD “Side Tracks,” and a hardcover book featuring extensive new album-by-album liner notes penned by Clinton Heylin and a new introduction written by Bill Flanagan.

A Prairie Home Companion: Memphis
Tiny Desk Concert: Milk Carton Kids
Mountain Stage: Live on Stage
World Cafe: The Milk Carton Kids
Folk Alley: A Heartwarming Hit
Two voices, two guitars — sometimes that’s all it takes. Case in point: The Milk Carton Kids. Los Angeles-based singer-songwriters Kenneth Pattengale and Joey Ryan spent a decade pursuing separate careers before they formed a duo two years ago, taking the name from the title of one of their songs, “Milk Carton Kid.” With their close harmonies, deft guitar work, and deadpan humor, they quickly built a wide and devoted following.Share
Tent Show Radio: Steve Earle
Steve Earle had two reasons for coming out with this long-planned tribute to Townes Van Zandt now. The first reason is practical. Earle is currently pushing himself to finish a years-in-the-making novel, and he wants to see it in print before the publishing business goes belly up.Share
A Prairie Home Companion: Exclusive Preview - So Sang the Whippoorwill
"Doing a weekly radio show for a few decades a man sometimes feels he has heard way too much music and he avoids cafes where singer/songwriters perform and puts his iPod in the drawer and enjoys long silent walks in the snowy woods and then along comes this very band, Run Boy Run, two fiddles, mandolin, cello, and bass, young musicians who have caught the spirit of the traditional and who combine bold playing and beautiful harmony singing, which is a miracle whenever you hear it. My only quibble was whether they shouldn’t separate the Boy from the Run Run with a pair of commas, but now I think not. I saw them clear late one night at a party when they played for three hours straight, unamplified, and danced while they did it, and wanted to play more but the van was leaving. I am old and jaded but I still have my hearing and when I hear Run Boy Run, it all comes back to me, why I started doing that show back then. I hope they go on forever."
