Bryan Ferry pays homage to the most important U.S. composer of the 2nd half of the 20th century, by releasing an album with covers on Bob Dylan’s songs. It is obvious that Ferry admires Dylan since he has already covered A Hard Rain’s Gonna Fall in his first solo lp ‘These Foolish Things’ (1973), It Ain’t Me Babe in ‘Another Time, Another Place’ lp (1974) and Don’t Think Twice It’s All Right and It’s All Over Now, Baby Blue in ‘Frantic’ lp (2002). So, our latest upload is also an album with covers on Bob Dylan’s songs (one of Ferry’s covers is of course here). An all-star team of artists takes part, which includes Sam Cooke, Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Rod Stewart, Flying Burrito Brothers, Byrds, Them, Stills – Kooper – Bloomfield, Judy Collins, Siouxsie And The Banshees, Tom Robinson Band, Richie Havens, Jimi Hendrix, Tina Turner, George Thorogood, Carl Perkins, The Band, Joe Cocker, Eric Clapton, Joan Baez, Jerry Lee Lewis, Everly Brothers, Ron Wood, Ry Cooder, Bonnie Raitt etc. After all, the variety of styles of the artists that approached Dylan’s material is the best evidence of his vast influence on music.
