Song #2 on the Popdose Top 100 Covers list is “All Along The Watchtower”, originally by Bob Dylan and covered by Jimi Hendrix.
For the umpteenth time, I can say I’d never heard the original before now. Honestly, I’m a bit surprised that in all these years of classic rock radio, no deejay has ever spun this tune just to show us all where the Hendrix version came from. Speaking of which:
Heard it a billion times on the aforementioned classic rock stations, but it never gets old. As with Janis Joplin, you can only wonder what else Hendrix would have done had he lived longer. Rest in peace, Jimi.
