From Bryan Ferry’s ‘Dylanesque’

The line it is drawn/The curse it is cast/The slow one now/Will later be fast/As the present now/Will later be past/The order is rapidly fadin’/And the first one now will later be last/For the times they are a-changin…

Dylan recorded this one before he “went electric” and pushed his songwriting skills into a new dimension, where oddball sophisticates such as Brian Ferry would thrive. Not an easy task, but Ferry, in his understated way, breathes new life into the song, and his rhythm section rumbles like not-so-distant thunder.
