Bob Dylan - The Music Which Inspired Girl from the North Country, review

Brilliant Range

This is a quick mention of a fine compilation of Dylan songs, made by Conor McPherson and which follow their playing and reinterpretation in the play by McPherson Girl from the North Country. I knew nothing of the play when I heard this selection, and while I am familiar with many of the tracks, I am not with all, and also not being one of the biggest followers of Dylan I have nonetheless been impressed with their mix and juxtapositions. The fact that so many of the songs sound fresh is testament to how little I really know of Dylan’s massive output, apart from the obvious ‘hits’, but also just how deep his brilliance is across the range presented here.
