I presented 3 versions of All Along The Watchtower in my last post. Her's another one from U2's album Rattle And Hum. One of the best known and most popular U2 songs is also on that album. Called One it has been covered by Johnny Cash on the third part of his American series. Last but not least, to close today's "cover circle" a Bob Dylan version of the Cash-song Train Of Love performed at a Johnny Cash Tribute in 1999. Today's bonus track is Cash' original version of that song.

Dylan Covers - Vol. Three

I've been quite busy this week, so here's just a short video post.
Definitely one of the most famous cover versions of all time is Jimi Hendrix' version of All Along The Watchtower, which made an all-time great out of an only average Dylan original. You can hear the influence of Hendrix' cover in nearly every other version of that song including Dylan's own live performances.
