    From the start of Bob Dylan’s original “All Along the Watchtower” there is this whiny, claustrophobic feeling. This contrasts the rebellious and loud cover that Jimi Hendricks made famous.

A tale from two sides, using more of a classic folk style, Bob Dylan’s lyrical prowess is shown in full while Hendricks used his experience and skill to…
