Dylanesque is a 2007 album by Bryan Ferry, the former lead vocalist for Roxy Music. The album consists covers of Bob Dylan songs. As of 11 July 2007 it has sold 11,985 copies in the US and has reached the Top 10 on both United Kingdom and Swedish album charts.

Critical reception[edit]

Reviewing for AllMusic critic, Stephen Thomas Erlewine wrote of the album "Ferry has never felt quite so comfortable as he does here, and if that may not be exactly what all listeners are looking for when they listen to his work, this is the quality that will make Dylanesque a small understated gem for certain segments of his die-hard fans."[7]
