no81bob top 20 2011: No 16 Visions of Johanna – Marianne Faithful


Brilliant journeys with the Alt Blonde on Blonde – each track a different take on the originals, and a few of them improving – Tom Petty, John Mellencamp and especially returning to Marianne Faithfull’s beautiful Visions of Johanna – definitely the find of the week.  I’m sure his Bobness wouldn’t mind – he wrote the words and music and someone came and stole them to create perfection!  So, winding down the week with an album and alt album that will live on with me some time, and will get played and played again.”
