Listen: Deep Into Bob Dylan’s “Visions Of Johanna”

“Visions Of Johanna” is an endlessly fascinating song. It’s a song that reveals itself slowly, over the years. And then the light changes and you hear it totally different.

I’ve gathered together two outtakes from when Dylan was calling the song “Freeze Out,” a bunch of live recordings from the 1966 tour of Australia and Europe, and the official version released on “Blonde On Blonde.”

Enjoy.
