All Along The Watchtowers
« on: June 24, 2016, 12:04:27 PM »
Since this is one of My all time Favorite Rock Songs Here is a lot of great versions of this song.

We will start with Bob Dylan born Robert Allen Zimmerman since he wrote this gem.
Song was originally released on his John Wesley Harding album in 1967.

This is him at woodstock 1994   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TYJN79ePvhI

Next Up is James Marshall (Jimi) Hendrix who with the Jimi Hendrix Experience created a version that since then everyone wants to cover.

Some really cool versions in there. Besides the true Dylan and Hendrix versions, I liked the Dave Mason, Neil Young, Frank Marino, and Night Of The Guitars versions best. Speaking of Neil young, need a Neil Young section in this place.
Love Neil's older stuff, great guitarist.

Some great versions, as with a lot of Dylan songs. Several bands have covered his songs well. Each with their own pace, twists and turns to suite their style.
