Dylanesque Is A Shining Moment in Bryan Ferry's career
Roy A. Harper | Largo, Florida United States | 06/26/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"As a long-time and avid fan of Roxy Music and Bryan Ferry, I have to admit that I was a bit skeptical of the thought of Bryan Ferry doing a whole album of Dylan music. But - his interpetations of each song is brilliant !! Ferry puts his heart and soul into each song. On this video, it is obvious that he is 'into' it. He plays more harmonica than I have ever seen before, and is 'soulful'. His brief narratives about Bob Dylan and the music is just enough to be a satisfying supplement without taking away from his performances of the music. The piano playing of Colin Good is unmatched in its excellance, and it's great to see Roxy 'member' Andy Newmark on drums. The band, overall, is tight and each version of Dylan's songs, actually, improves somewhat on the originals !!
Bryan Ferry is superb in his vocals. I think he could, actually, do an album of anyone's music and improve on it !! A good example of that is the Roxy Music version of John Lennon's 'Jealous Guy'. While I am a big Beatles fan, Bryan Ferry's "Jealous Guy" gave it more 'soul' than Lennon.
Overall, this DVD is a joy to watch, and proves that Bryan Ferry is one of the most under-rated artists of our time !"
Get both...

"I would highly recommend getting both this DVD and the CD, as I did, since the latter will enhance your enjoyment of the former. I could be a bit biased though, since I've been a Ferry (and Roxy Music) fan for well over 30 years (and relatively recently had independenty re-discovered Dylan's body of work).
I enjoyed the music.

"This is a documentary of the recording sessions for Dylanesque.

I saw Bryan Ferry singing "Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues" on the Letterman show one night and was entranced. The energy of the live performance does not carry over to the business-like atmosphere of a recording session. Granted, it's the music business, so there will be much to enjoy, but since I am not particularly interested in the inner-working of a recording session, or in Bryan Ferry's philosophy of music, I'd have enjoyed this better if it were a recording of a live concert, rather than what it is. That said, it is still an evening's entertainment, however low-key."
Dylanesque is Excellent

"Almost better than the CD. I enjoy having the DVD playing on my computer while working, doing e-mail etc. The live nature seems to enhance the songs.
