agreed, but that opening riff is a huge hook{#Bananajam}
Wonder why CLASSIC ROCK chose this one over all the others? So many better offerings from Jimi yet it was this they chose to kill

When this was a current hit, we often went to our local Boston Pizza after a night of partying.  They had a juke box with great sound and had the volume cranked – this song was always played - bliss!

Here’s something I noticed while listening to a tribute album to Hank Williams:

Williams lyrics from “Alone and Forsaken”:

The darkness is falling, the sky has turned gray
A hound in the distance is starting to bay

Dylan lyrics from this song:

Outside in the cold distance 
A wildcat did growl
Two riders were approaching
And the wind began to howl

Maybe another example of one great artist taking something very good and making it even better?

                                         The only studio recording that Jimi played any slide guitar on.

Yes, I believe that he was right about the 'application'.  Dylan must find that amusing.  

 
But this is the most excellent cover by far!

Ok. Enough of the silliness. Give it a 10 and move along.

Was at a college baseball game last week when this came on.  Turned my my grad school buddy (son of a Navy colleague who's at school in town) and asked, "Do you know this song?"

"Sure, man.  Hendrix.  All Along the Watchtower.  Always comes on in a war movie when the shit's about to come down."

Well, he's sho'nuff right about the title and artist, and he may be right about the application.

Filmore East, New Years Eve 1969, pitch black and at the stroke of midnight, Jimi starts this song. Burned in my memory. I had a mind before then.
