North Country Blues

from Tightrope by Odgers and Simmonds



A song about abandoned mining communities that makes as much sense in the UK as it does in America. Accompanied by Bobby, Paul gives the old Dylan classic a little twist in this brand new version from the Perryvale sessions.

“I think everyone should have a shot at a Dylan song. Let’s face it, you know you are working with strong material. This is from the more traditional side of his work; an early classic, the storytelling ethic both concise and evocative.”
