154 – The Jimi Hendrix Experience – All Along The Watchtower (1968)
Written by Bob Dylan
Produced by Jimi Hendrix
Label – Reprise/Track

It’s extremely rare that an artist, musician or band can interpret someone else’s material and create a better song than the original recording. Here’s one! Dylan would say, “It overwhelmed me, really. He had such talent, he could find things inside a song and vigorously develop them. He found things that other people wouldn’t think of finding in there. He probably improved upon it by the spaces he was using. I took license with the song from his version, actually, and continue to do it to this day.”
