Quite a suprise
on 31 March 2007
Prior to listening, I was sceptical about the necessity of this release, reanalysing and reinterpreting the Dylan catalogue. However, as well as being a Dylan fan, I have a high respect for Ferry and his output. The CD grips you after the first spin. High quality production capturing the essense of the original, but often setting it in a new direction. Ferry's vocals still have that individuality and are balanced by a tight backing band who do a superb job on all of the tracks here. I congratulate Ferry on the excellent choice of tracks too - yes, some common staples are chosen but they sound fresh and you don't need to skip tracks. There are no duds, which for a covers album is high praise indeed.
It is an album you want to share and recommend, and you will not be disappointed.
