All Along the Watchtower
by Bob Dylan
All Along the Watchtower Resources
Live from the Isle of Wight. It's different from the album version, but worth a look.
Live from the Woodstock music festival in 1999. If you're into DMB, you'll probably like this cover.
An excellent cover by fellow legend Neil Young, as performed live at the Dylan 30th Anniversary Celebration.
Don't judge Bob based on this loud, mumbling version of the song he played at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1995. It's very different from the original John Wesley Harding recording.
The theatrical trailer for Spike Lee's movie Clockers features Hendrix's version of "All Along the Watchtower" about 90 seconds in. You get a good feel for how the song has been used in films and on television: to symbolize all hell breaking loose.
The classic album cover of John Wesley Harding, featuring a grainy photo of a sly-looking Bob.
