Dylan Cover #390 Neil Young "All Along The Watchtower" Live Farm Aid 1994

In this ongoing Monday Series we will be exploring various artists versions of Bob Dylan song's. Today's tune is a live cover by Neil Young, Willie Nelson and Crazy Horse  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:
RtBE digs on Uncle Neil a bunch and are showcasing him this month in our Master's Series.

Thoughts on Cover:
For one of the most expressive guitar players to channel both Hendrix and Dylan with Crazy Horse backing him up and Willie Nelson guesting on acoustic, this is a special version of this tune.
