JIMI HENDRIX - All Along the Watchtower - Rehearsals

This is just fabulous, it like finding the Holy Grail of Dylan Covers. It is pretty near a recognised fact that the Electric Ladyland version of All Along the Watchtower is probably the greatest Dylan cover of all time. I would have to agree, it takes a lot of beating. It is the perfect rock record, it has got the lot.

You can play this at my funeral and I will certainly be smiling when the flames come for me.

This can be found on the 6 CD set Naked Ladyland.  Above is a 35 min series of rehearsals showing how they get to the final recording. There is also some more of the same on one of the other discs. This is a must for Hendrix and Dylan fans alike. Absolutely Brilliant.

Added Bonus,  Jimi Plays Live at Newport 1969 Like a Rolling Stone.
