All Along The Watchtower

All Along The Watchtower was originally recorded by Bob Dylan, but was made famous by Jimi Hendrix. In fact until recently I hadn't known that Bob Dylan was the original writer of the song. Regardless its a good song that should be on any playlist for when being stoned, along with Jefferson Airplane's White Rabbit and other songs that I will post in the near future. I personally prefer Jimi's version though.

  1. I love both version of the song, but I too prefer Hendrix's rendition. Apparently Bob Dylan himself has said Hendrix's version is better.
