DYLAN COVERS #62 Bruce Springsteen & Friends - Highway 61/All along the Watchtower

You must be putting me on!
How about some more from the Boss. This first one is taken from a concert Live at the Shrine Auditorium in  Los Angelas on the 17th November 1990 . It can be found on the 'Boot' Acoustic Tales - Second Night. Joining Bruce on this great cover is Jackson Brown and Bonnie Rait. I like this one a lot.

BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN, JACKSON BROWN, BONNIE RAIT - Highway 61 Revisited(1990).



BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN & Michael Strollo - All Along the Watchtower

There are so many covers of AATW you may well say! 'Oh no not another' but if you have not seen or heard this version 'strap your self to a tree with roots'  because you may have lift off. This is pretty near as good as it gets. I love the Boss covering Dylan.

I wasn't holding out much hope for Highway 61 as I'm not a big fan of Jackson or Bonnie, but it was an absolutely charming version. Watchtower was terrific too, with Bruce showing remarkable restraint for a long time until he really let rip with the solo.

Good stuff - keep digging 'em up OPC!

TS - I have been fan of JB since his first album....I would always buy a new album by him (just in case)
