david coverversion: the secret machines vs bob dylan

now we all know that's the name that robert plant called david coverdale back in the 80's before coverdale and jimmy page's little musical tryst back in 1993. anyways, our david coverversion is going to be posts related to most famous takes/orignals vs. covers. why not start with a bang?

the secret machines released an ep of covers for their single 'the road leads where its led' a few years back, covering van morrison, motown, harmonia and bob dylan for it. just recently the guitarist for the secret machines has hung up his spaceaxe and is starting anew with the school of seven bells. tuh, and hopefully sweet. lets hope the machines find a suitable replacement and not continue as a drum and bass duo like those fartsniffers douche from above 1979. anyways, here is their take on 'girl from the north country'. pretty boss eh? but we all know bob dylan is for the byrds.

bob dylan - girl from the north country
the secret machines - girl from the north country

go buy whatcha likes and delete whatcha don't

Girl from the north country is a favorite cover for a lot of country bands as well. I've heard Johnny Cash's version and Sam Bush used to play it (I'm pretty sure). Sam bush can fuck off. Cheezy bastard.
