53 Years Ago Today Jimi Hendrix Experience Released Their Cover of All Along The Watchtower

Posted on by Anthony Loeffen

On September 21st, 1968 Jimi Hendrix Experience released their version of the Bob Dylan song 'All Along the Watchtower'. Hendrix had been given a tape of Dylan's recording by publicist Michael Goldstein. Dave Mason from Traffic and Rolling Stone Brian Jones both played on the recording.
Dylan has said as much: “It overwhelmed me, really. ... In the liner notes to Biograph, Dylan said: “I liked Jimi Hendrix's record of this and ever since he died I've been doing it that way. Strange how when I sing it, I always feel it's a tribute to him in some kind of way.” Eddie Kramer talked about the recording of the song in an Episode of "Inside The Track"
