Hi scran,

Bob Dylan and Johhny cash sang 'Girl of the North Country'.
I'm guessing, but will say it was recorded on the album 'Nashville Skyline' around about 1963.

It's a simple but evocative duet, terrific little melody and seems to be an interpretation of the traditional ballad 'Scarbarough Fair'.

Clean, clear acoustic guitars. (I suppose I like it! Haven't heard it for years, though, and sorry, this is probably more than you wanted to know!):O

28th Apr 2003, 10:00

well done pigboat...you spotted the deliberate error

(No way I'll own up to being a Village People expert...:} :p )

28th Apr 2003, 22:07
Well, I usually don't get involved, but it pains me to think that Plastic Tits Tiffany's talentless version of I Think We're Alone Now could ever muster comparison with the original by Tommy James and the Shondells, an underrated group responsible for some of the most delicious no-hidden-meanings pop music ever written. Often ludicrously written off as bubblegum, but WAAAAY better than that. See also Tommy Boyce and Bobby Hart.

Err, I'll go now....... :(

28th Apr 2003, 22:37

29th Apr 2003, 09:16
Theme 1..Perry Como?

Trivia f..Glad All Over???

Alan Freed!!! Aaarrgggghh!! Was gonna say that, but then thought of Wolfman Jack. Drat!
Then there was another guy named Dick Shadow who used to host something called 'The Nightlight Show' on WBZ Boston about the same time.

Scran if the scranette is still interested in c&w, have her check out the new cd from Lucinda Williams. The Montreal English language daily calls it instant classic. (Haven heard it meself yet.):O

Thanks scran, I was actually just holding forth in my usual pompous (and drunken) manner. I wasn't even playing and I got 5 points! :ooh: How good is that? :ok:

29th Apr 2003, 14:45
Tommy James and the Shondelles!!!

I thought I musta imagined 'em 'cos I've never come across anyone else who'd admit to knowing of them.

Crimson in Clover copped a hammering when I was learning turntable technique at the local community radio station....quelle phasing.....:ok:

29th Apr 2003, 15:14
Hey Cooda?

Which Local radio station? Not TOP-FM?

I was on RAAF Radio Butterworth in 1979-81, then came back to Darwin and after passing some "tests" with TOP-FM, did numerous slots there from early/mid 1982 until I left in 1984......

Small world? :E :E :ok:

29th Apr 2003, 17:39
The world is shrinking......the world is shrinking!!!!:uhoh:

Was press ganged into on air work by Carol Miller when the station opened in '81(?).

Took me until '84 to escape. :D

Which sentence were you serving?

29th Apr 2003, 21:02
Cooda 1981-84

Scran 1982-84

My rudimentary understanding of time and space, combined with an unparallelled knowledge of statistics and odds indicates a high probability that these two good Ppruners were in the same place at the same time.

I realise this will come as a shock to some, but the truth will out..........

And if you're ever passing through Mackay, tune into 4CRM, 107.5 on a Tuesday morning between 10 and 12 to hear a recalcitrant presenter who refuses to bow to rap crap and other abominations and quietly passes on the great sounds of another generation before he goes to golf and writes himself off.

No names, no pack drill. :uhoh:

30th Apr 2003, 07:49
Hhmmm...lets see......

I started Friday "drive-time", which was around 5 until 7 from memory.

There was then a bit of a shake up, with people no longer getting a set show (remember John, the new station manager?) and I took over the Saturday morning slot in a "rotation" type system from a guy (named Barry from memory) who got pee-d off because he lost his favourite slot.

Then basically slowly drifted out of it until I left Darwin in 1984.

Still have some tapes of a few of my shows.

Seem to remember the "promo" line:

"TOP-FM, Stereo 104" that we had to use as station ID.

And I'll forever remember the RAAF Radio Butterworth station ID -

"You're listening to R-DoubleAF Radio Butterworth, the voice of the Royal Australian Air Force in Malaysia"..............:uhoh: :uhoh: :uhoh: :uhoh: :uhoh: :E :ok:

30th Apr 2003, 09:50
There seems to be some uncertainty over the name. Girl of the North Country or Girl from the North Country.

Reminded me of my favorite version by Tom Northcott. Different, with a certain energy.

Theme 1 - Andy Williams?

30th Apr 2003, 12:44
Yep, management in action.

That idea of rotating rosters was a winner alright....quite a few 'older hands' moved on around that time.

I had the Sunday morning album show for the first few years before being doubled up with an 'alternative music' afficianado.

Got sick of copping abusive calls about 'last week's show' so moved on to making babies. :D

"8TOP-FM - STEREO 104"...where else could a K-Tel Compilation record achieve album of the week status?? :ooh: :ouch:

30th Apr 2003, 17:27
Rolling Thunder, I have it on the authority of "Rolling Stone" no less - Dylan invited him to sing a duet ("Girl from the North Country") and write liner notes for Nashville Skyline, and Dylan appeared in the first segment of ABC-TVÆs The Johnny Cash Show in June 1969.

30th Apr 2003, 23:44
Hi Scran,

Rollingthunder and newswatcher could well be correct and I may well be wrong with regard to the Dylan/Cash duet song title (sob).

It seems it could well be that the tiltle in question is in fact "Girl from the North Country" as Rollingthunder and newswatcher indicate, rather than the tiltle that I proposed, incorrectly, namely, "Girl of the North Country".

Curses.. and what can I say, but offer my regrets and suggest that any points earned in error be redistibuted to those more deserving.

PPRuNe....truth will out! ;)

1st May 2003, 08:19
OK Rainbow - you have a choice:

either 50 lashes of Rolling Thunders tongue or Cooda can feed you to a Darwin Crocodile...which will it be? :eek:

I'd like to take this opportunity to thank my "Band" of supporters.

Over the last few Quiz's, we have had contirbutions (with respect to supplying questions) from Pigboat, Bev Bevan, Jolly and Takethe5th. In fact, most of the trivia questions over the next few weeks are as a result of her support, so thank you..:ok: :ok: :ok: :ok: to all of you!!!!!!

Also watch out for an entire Lyrics question set from Cooda!!!!!:uhoh: :uhoh:

1st May 2003, 08:31
I don't know rainbow.

I've always known it as "Girl from the North Country" but cannot be bothered to dig out the Dylan LP from underneath a pile of VHS tapes. The Tom Northcott cassette (that I did dig out) titles it as "Girl of the North Country" Neptoon Records 003 - a local Vancouver publisher - or was (rare is this cassette). If you goggle the tune it comes up in both titles.

1st May 2003, 09:53
Scran, Eagle Eye Thunder is correct. I screwed the pooch on the song title.:oh: I have just returned from a trip across the room to the record collection and the song title is indeed "Girl From The North Country.":uhoh:
Please don't feed me to the crocodiles!! Waahhh!!:{

1st May 2003, 17:23
Sure it isn't North Country Girl????;) :D

1st May 2003, 17:40
and just to confuse even more:confused: , the Dylan site - http://www.bobdylan.com/index.html
has "Girl of the North Country".

I think I will go and lie down!

1st May 2003, 23:23
Well in the end, it is a damn fine tune worth re-playing.

The lyrics...

If you're travelin' in the north country fair,
Where the winds hit heavy on the borderline,
Remember me to one who lives there.
She once was a true love of mine.

Well, if you go when the snowflakes storm,
When the rivers freeze and summer ends,
Please see if she's wearing a coat so warm,
To keep her from the howlin' winds.

Please see for me if her hair hangs long,
If it rolls and flows all down her breast.
Please see for me if her hair hangs long,
That's the way I remember her best.

I'm a-wonderin' if she remembers me at all.
Many times I've often prayed
In the darkness of my night,
In the brightness of my day.

So if you're travelin' in the north country fair,
Where the winds hit heavy on the borderline,
Remember me to one who lives there.
She once was a true love of mine.

:) Hi srcan,

Thank you for the choice. And I would at any time prefer to choose Cooda feeding me to a Darwin crocodile rather than to suffer 50 lashes of Rollingthunders tongue!

(Having some experience with Northern Territory crocodiles...)

Nonetheless, many thanks also to you for a fine effort with regard to these pages, and thanks to Cooda and Rollingthunder for a good hearted debate. (Great effort Rolling.. contributing the lyrics...)
