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.

Undoubtedly, somebody up at Columbia thought that Bob Dylan’s Greatest Hits, Volume II ought to be in there competing with Bangla Desh for the Christmas dollar, and thus the set, complete with beautiful Bangla Desh color cover, was rush-released into the stores. Dylan, bless him, wasn’t so calculating, and took pains to include his own Christmas gift: five new songs - or, more accurately, five songs made somewhat famous by other artists but never before recorded by him - not found on older albums. Another Side of Bob Dylan was a moving and brilliant transitional album, perhaps the most personal work he’s ever done. He managed at least a draw or a TKO over the Beatles and the Stones with Bringing It All Back Home, Highway 61 Revisited, and Blonde on Blonde. John Wesley Harding was another fine transitional LP.
This 1971 set, compiled by Bob Dylan, is rich with hits and overlooked album cuts, rarities and essential, then-new recordings. The delights are many, such as the single-only blues rocker Watching the River Flow, the dusty, dobro-enhanced outtake of When I Paint My Masterpiece and the nimble love epistle Tomorrow Is a Long Time. Tunes re-recorded that year with folk singer Happy Traum-including Dylan’s ultimate song of reclamation, I Shall Be Released, and a singsong, banjo-stoked version of You Ain’t Goin’ Nowhere -sound even truer to Dylan’s ’60s gospel
Where Dylan's first Greatest Hits took its title literally, Greatest Hits, Vol. 2 is a greatest-hits album only in the loosest sense of the term. While the double album does contain several genuine hits - "Lay Lady Lay," "Tonight I'll Be Staying Here with You," the non-LP "Watching the River Flow" - it is largely comprised of album tracks that became classics, either through Dylan's own version or through covers. While some of the cuts may not be immediately familiar to some listeners, Greatest Hits, Vol. 2 in many ways is a more accurate picture of the depth and breadth of Dylan's talents, making it an excellent introduction. And it's not just for casual fans, because the rarities and sequencing are revealing for even devoted Dylan fans.
