JIMI HENDRIX - Like a Rolling Stone (1968)
I found this by chance, 'praise be' to whom was responsible. Could this be the 'Holy Grail' of Dylan Covers, if not, it is way up there. I would just love to hear a finished version of this, I am drooling at the thought of it. Hendrix has covered the song on many occasions, never better than his version at the 'Monterey Festival 68' which is widely available and yes thats is his (Dylan's) Grandma over there.
There are 3 different versions of L.A.R.S. on the album 'Live at Winterlands, San Francisco 1968, which gets an official release later this year. At the end of this Post there is a 'taster' version of L.A.R.S. from the first day of this 3 day event, it is well worth hearing, in advance of the 'official' release.
I have also included another great version from Newport Pop Festival 69.
What is the greatest Dylan song? Is it 'L.A.R.S'. because of it's ground breaking significance? Or is it 'Blowin' in the wind' because of its brilliant simplicity? Or even 'Visions of Johanna'? The list is endless....what do you think?
More Dylan covers??
