BRYAN Ferry would not often be thought of as someone who would take the works of Bob Dylan and make them into his own property.

But on most tracks it works.

The trick is too look at Dylanesque as Ferry's work rather than making a comparison with the originals from Dylan.

That said, Ferry takes such classics as All Along the Watchtower and Knocking on Heaven's Door and gives them a touch of Roxy Music.

There is a re-working of The Times Are a Changin' which is probably the highlight of the album.

Other tracks include Positively 4th Street and It's Not For You.

And remember, too, that Ferry did make a reasonable cover version of A Hard Rain's Gonna Fall in the mid-1970s.
