Single : All Along The Watchtower – The Jimi Hendrix Experience

download (19)

That opening sound, the searing guitar, then that voice.

“No reason to get excited.”

Jimi puts his umph into this one.  What a great sound.  Babyhead was hooked.  Loud , hard and real good.  How many sounds can a guy get out of a guitar?   He could play.  Sing too.

Hendrix cuts loose a few times.  Music Jimi Hendrix style.

They actually played this song on am radio when it came out.  How the hell did it get on  there?

Sing and play one Jim.

    Do you like this one more than Dylan’s original?

    Ovidiu, I heard Jimi’s version first and it blew me away. (CB is recalling his initial experience with all the music and films). I heard Bob’s original later in my musical journey and I also dug it but it was a different feel. I even think Dylan was blown away by Hendrix’s take. Not everyone does Bob’s songs justice, Jimi did. Also like Dave Mason’s version. U2’s. Neil Young does a killer live version with Booker T and the M.G.’s at a Dylan tribute concert. But it was Hendrix that got to CB first. An all time favorite single! Keep those ears open. Lots of music for you to enjoy.
