Another great Dylan cover, this time coming from Jamaica Plain big-band The Points North. (See previous post).

“Girl From the North Country” is one of my favorite Bob Dylan songs.  Off The Freewheelin’ Bob Dylan, it’s just such a beautiful song filled with longing. With the addition of the constant and dedicated single chord strum, The Points North give the song a fervent feeling. I think there’s some accordian in there too.

“In the brightness of my night. In the darkness of my day.”

The Points North is a hell of a band. I can’t wait to see them live.
