Dylan Cover #256 Eddie Vedder "Girl From The North Country" Live

In this ongoing Monday Series we will be exploring various artists versions of Bob Dylan song's. Today's tune comes from Eddie Vedder and it is his live cover of "Girl From The North Country"

Thoughts on Dylan's Original:
From the first time we tackled a cover version of this song:
A fun little number that connects Dylan with folk's past. I heard Simon and Garfunkel's "Scarborough Fair" first when I was growing up so I have always been a bit more partial to that version of this old folk tune even though Dylan changed a bunch of stuff around (obviously) with his recording that appeared on The Freewheeling Bob Dylan. His duet with Johnny Cash that highlights Nashville Skyline is something else entirely, a major sonic effort that I love. On an album that saw so many massive tunes come flowing out of the bard this one can be overshadowed yet his first version of this track is just a sweet folk ditty that has aged very, very well.

Thoughts on Cover Artist:
We love Eddie. Love Pearl Jam. Now that Pop Week is done we are back to normal scheduling broadcasting here at RtBE.
Thoughts on Cover:
Awesome, fantastic version, live from his solo acoustic tour. Not much to add, just enjoy the sweet little song.
