Fan input will help shape the songs that will make the cut for "Dylan," a three-disc Bob Dylan retrospective and companion greatest hits disc due Oct. 1 via Columbia.

The larger set will feature 51 songs that will be chosen in part based on "fan lobbying" and votes cast at Dylan07.com, which launched in February. Visitors to the site will also find the record's artwork, a trailer and details on how to contribute photos to a future online Dylan photo album.

The three-disc "Dylan" will be released in standard packaging as well as in a "deluxe" cloth-bound, photo-laden version that includes ample liner notes. The one-disc "best of" version of "Dylan" will feature 18 songs.

Dylan is on tour in North America through late July and will then head to Australia and New Zealand for an August run.
