Excellent! I have been after this CD in Australia for years!! Had it on vinyl too long ago to remember.

24 Bit Digitally Remastered. Double CD - Bob Dylan's Greatest Hits Vol. II, also known as More Bob Dylan Greatest Hits, is the second compilation album by American singer-songwriter Bob Dylan, released on November 17, 1971 by Columbia Records. With Dylan not expected to release any new material for an extended period of time, CBS Records president Clive Davis proposed issuing a double LP compilation of older material. Dylan agreed, compiling it himself and suggesting that the package include a full side of unreleased tracks from his archives. After submitting a set of excerpts from the The Basement Tapes that Davis found unsatisfactory, Dylan returned to the studio in September 1971 to recut several Basement songs, with Happy Traum providing backup. The final package included one previously uncollected single, 'Watching the River Flow', an outtake from the same sessions, 'When I Paint My Masterpiece'; one song from Dylan's April 12, 1963 Town Hall concert, 'Tomorrow Is a Long Time', and three songs from the September sessions, 'I Shall Be Released', 'You Ain't Goin' Nowhere', and 'Down in the Flood'. The remaining tracks were drawn from existing releases. As with the Beatles' 1962-1966 and The Basement Tapes, all the selections could fit on a single 80-minute CD, but were nevertheless released on two CDs to match the LP.
