“The ‘In’ Crowd” – Bryan Ferry

Bryan Ferry’s transcendent 1974 cover of the Dobie Gray – Ramsey Lewis jazz-soul classic from the 1960s. Ferry can totally rock a white dinner jacket and still kick ass better than most leather-jacketed would-be “tough” guys. He also has the good taste to include some dissonant electric guitars on this cover as a wink and nod to the hip rockers in the audience. Yes, Ferry looks like every bad personal injury lawyer on TV, but he arguably gets better as he gets older.
