I´ve posted some great versions of VOJ lately. There seems to be strong opinions among our readers regarding “best VOJ live version”, so why not compare different versions?
I´v nominated 10 versions and would love to get feedback – use the comments section in this post or comment on my post on Alldylan´s FB page -> Alldylan @ Facebook.
Try to pick 3, but any number will do.
My top 3:
- Sheffield 1966
- Portsmouth 2000
- Dublin 2005
If we get enough response, I´ll compile the results and update this post.

Just Louise and her lover so entwined
And these visions of Johanna that conquer my mind
