Bryan Ferry's Dylan Covers Record: Advancedesque

Bryan Ferry really wants us to believe he is Advanced:

"According to Roxyrama, an unofficial but authoritative fan site dedicated to Ferry and Roxy Music, EMI will release Dylanesque sometime in March. Although no track list has been officially confirmed, songs interpreted by Ferry for Dylanesque reportedly include 'All Along The Watchtower,' 'Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues,' 'Simple Twist Of Fate' and 'The Times They Are A-Changin',' among others."

Here's the full track list:

"Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues"
"Simple Twist Of Fate"
"Make You Feel My Love"
"The Times They Are A-Changin'"
"All I Really Want To Do"
"Knockin' On Heaven's Door"
"Positively 4th Street"
"If Not For You"
"Baby, Let Me Follow You Down"
"Gates Of Eden"
"All Along The Watchtower"

Ferry is one of those borderline Advanced cases. I'm not totally convinced his role in Roxy Music qualifies him, but maybe someone out there can prove it to me. Whatever the case the concept and, especially, the title of the record are amazing.

I think I'm still a newbie at this whole thing.
