North country blues

For years I’ve associated this song with winter solstice, cold times in the north. Just came across this extraordinary version, with Dylan looking so young. Perhaps it is the simplicity of the song that moves me. What music touches you at this time of year?

    Thanks, Ellen
    I knew when I first heard him that he was special and I’ve come to believe he is the best poet of the last half of the 1900’s.
    I had the good fortune to hear him get booed by the folkies when he went electric and played at Forest Hills.
    Smartest move he ever made.
    By the way, no, Bob does not have a great voice but no one sings his songs better than he does.
