Back to the BCT for today’s Daily Dose of the Dead. This is from the 4/22/86 Rex Benefit show. The dead opened the show with Box of Rain > Visions of Johanna. This is the back-end of that segue.
"Visions of Johanna" is a song written and performed by Bob Dylan on his 1966 album Blonde on Blonde. Dylan first recorded the song in New York City in November 1965, under the working title of "Freeze Out", but was dissatisfied with the results. Several critics have acclaimed "Visions of Johanna" as one of Dylan’s highest achievements in writing, praising the allusiveness and subtlety of the language. Rolling Stone included "Visions of Johanna" on their list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time. In 1999, Sir Andrew Motion, poet laureate of the UK, listed it as his candidate for the greatest song lyric ever written.
Jerry does this song right with the emotional strain in his voice fitting perfectly into the harmonies of the music. The Dead only played this song 8 times including one other show in 1986 and then 6 in 1995. Too bad as this is one of the most beautiful songs the Grateful Dead ever performed. Phil must have thought so as well to include it on his compilation CD called Fallout From the Philzone.
"Inside the museums, infinity goes up on trial. Voices echo this is what salvation must be like after a while. Mona Lisa must have had the highway blues, you can tell by the way she smiles.”
