500 Greatest Songs of All Time
Bob Dylan, 'Visions of Johanna'
Producer: Bob Johnston
Released: May '66, Columbia
"It's easier to be disconnected than connected," Dylan confessed in late 1965. "I've got a huge hallelujah for all the people who're connected, that's great, but I can't do that." He never sounded lonelier than in this seven-minute ballad, originally titled "Seems Like a Freeze-Out." Dylan cut it in a single take on Valentine's Day 1966, with Al Kooper on Hammond B3 organ.
Appears on: Blonde on Blonde (Columbia)
