Editorial Reviews

Bryan Ferry has always coupled his own songwriting with a great reputation as an interpreter of other people's songs. His latest album "Dylanesque" sees him reinventing a selection of his favorite Bob Dylan songs in the unique Ferry style. "Dylanesque Live: The London Sessions" shows him performing all the tracks from the album "live in the studio" and also features insights from Bryan on his thoughts regarding the different tracks and why he chose them. The DVD includes both the TV broadcast version (which went out as "Bob Dylan Revisited") and additional material.

Tracklisting: 1) Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues 2) All I Really Wanna Do 3) The Times They Are A-Changin' 4) Gates Of Eden 5) Positively 4th Street 6) All Along The Watchtower 7) Knockin' On Heaven's Door 8) Simple Twist Of Fate 9) Make You Feel My Love

Bonus Tracks: 3 songs that did not air on television special: 1) Baby Let Me Follow You Down 2) Don't Think Twice, It's Alright 3) If Not For You Original 1973 promo video for "A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall"

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 !

5.0 out of 5 stars Get both... September 2, 2007
Format:DVD
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).

5.0 out of 5 stars Dylanesque is Excellent September 5, 2007
Format:DVD
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.

Excellent

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Ferry ever! August 23, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I have said this to other Ferry DVD's, but this one IS THE BEST ONE! His voice has matured beyond his previous efforts, just gets better with age. I am not usually a huge Dylan fan, but I really like how Bryan delivered. They are the best versions of Dylan songs I have heard by anyone. I sent 2 other copies to friends; it was that good! Trust me, it's very enjoyable. The DTS surround is breathtaking, I am sure the Dolby surround and stereo is almost as good. It's a mature Bryan for sure!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Magic is Still There November 30, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Not quite what I was expecting. I thought this would be a stage performance in front of an audience, but it was something different.

Ferry and his band, along with the producers, engineers etc from the Dylanesque album recreate the recording sessions but this time in front of video cameras.

Each track has a commentary at the end by Ferry and often by one of the other cast delving into the material, Ferry's history and other anecdotal stuff worth listening to.

The disc kicks of in fine style with Don't Think Twice, arranged for Voice and Piano and the track is so damned fine I found myself wondering why it didn't make the CD.

Hearing Ferry's unique and unmistakable voice re-render these classics is a treat, but to hear "The Time's They Are A Changin'" gathered into 4/4 and given a driving rock arrangement was almost worth the price of the DVD alone. The effect on the song is much as it was with "Hard Rain" when he did exactly the same thing with that track - what had been an interesting but aging 3/4 acoustic number was given a new lease on life.

The bonus material is basically four tracks, one of which is the old 70s video for "Hard Rain" which - sound apart - only proves how badly Top of the Pops could work with the material. Even allowing for Ferry's conflicting need to smoulder into the camera over the full length of the concert grand piano yet still have some sightline to an out-of-shot crib sheet for the lyrics the concept is not the greatest they've managed with minimal resources to work with. (I remember reading an interview in the NME some years later when Ferry admitted he needed a lyric sheet for Hard Rain when he performed it).

I loved the whole concept. The camera work is generally good, the material a mixed bag (from my personal perspective, your mileage may vary) and the performers excellent.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bryan Ferry: Dylanesque Live July 26, 2007
Format:DVD
Bryan Ferry is the consumate matinee idol, his heart breaking under his lapel and this captures his very essence.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Musicians Too July 14, 2007
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The visual element adds a whole new layer to experiencing Dylanesque. The band and the backup singers are fantastic and cool. Roxy Music and Ferry are clearly the biggest omissions from the Rock Hall in Cleveland. Where is the DVD for These Foolish Things?
