Video of Bob Dylan´s wonderful “Münster 2000” version of “Visions of Johanna”





Ain’t it just like the night to play tricks when you’re tryin’ to be so quiet?
We sit here stranded, though we’re all doin’ our best to deny it
And Louise holds a handful of rain, temptin’ you to defy it
Lights flicker from the opposite loft
In this room the heat pipes just cough
The country music station plays soft
But there’s nothing, really nothing to turn off
Just Louise and her lover so entwined
And these visions of Johanna that conquer my mind

My previous post about Dylan´s “Portsmouth 2000” version of VOJ got some comments referring to “Münster 2000″ as an even better version. Well I don´t know if it´s better… BUT it sure is utterly brilliant as well. 

Here is the Portsmouth version:

I´ve posted videos (including this one) from this great concert in Portsmouth before.

But this version of VOJ is so incredible it deserves a post for itself.

A worried man with a worried mind
No one in front of me and nothing behind
There’s a woman on my lap and she’s drinking champagne
Got white skin, got assassin’s eyes
I’m looking up into the sapphire-tinted skies
I’m well dressed, waiting on the last train

..lots of surprising song selections, a tight band and Dylan in great and authoritative voice, willing to radically experiment (the re-worked Dignity, for example) and – once again – reinventing his back pages.
~Andrew Muir (Razor’s Edge)

Bob seems to be in a good mood, the band is tight, and the performance is incredible. We get to hear two songs performed live for the first time ever.

February 24: Bob Dylan performing “Desolation Row” in Wellington, New Zealand 2003 (video)

They’re selling postcards of the hanging
They’re painting the passports brown
The beauty parlor is filled with sailors
The circus is in town
Here comes the blind commissioner
They’ve got him in a trance
One hand is tied to the tight-rope walker
The other is in his pants
And the riot squad they’re restless
They need somewhere to go
As Lady and I look out tonight
From Desolation Row
