Cover vs. Original

All Along the Watchtower


That is not an easy choice: But in this case I have to decide in favour of the cover version ofJimi Hendrix. His style of playing guitar is just sensational.
Bob Dylan was impressed by Jimis version of his song, too. So he even once played it during a concert in the style of Jimi Hendrix.
But I can't wait to see how you will vote...

Both versions are amazing, but I think Jimi's is so different than anything before or since. How did he do that? Man we miss that guy!

This song is absolutely awesome!!! I love the version by Jimi Hendrix. I can listen to the guitar solos all the time.
One of my favourite songs!

I think Bob Dylan is the best artist. Okay Jimi Hendfrix did a good job, but you should never forget who wrote the original. It is always the hardest thing to write a good song. To do a remake is much more easier.

Dylans song is great, but Hendrix interpretation is even greater!
