Dylan Cover #379 Jimi Hendrix "All Along The Watchtower"

In this ongoing Monday Series we will be exploring various artists versions of Bob Dylan song's. Today's tune is a cover by Jimi Hendrix performing "All Along The Watchtower" 

Thoughts on Original:
From our first take on a cover of this:
There are certain songs we are surprised we missed cover versions of in the Bard's back catalog...but "All Along The Watchtower" isn't one of them.  There is a reason we haven't covered a cover version (confusing). As Wilson mentioned in his post back in cover #44 there is only one true version of this song...and that is Mr. Jimi's.

Thoughts on Cover Artist:
We will be chatting about Jimi all month here at RtBE. He is simply put one of our favorites of all-time.

Thoughts on Cover:
Cutting to the chase: Best Dylan Cover Ever.
