Orginal vs Cover: Dylan v Hendrix

After Nirvana beating Tori Amos by 66% to 33%, the Originals are finally off the mark. The Covers still lead 2-1 overall and next up is one hell of a battle, All along the Watchtower.

First Original Bob Dylan

Next Jimi Hendrix

Hendrix version is superior from the very first bar.

Its hardly a fair comparison.

Two vastly different styles applied to the same song can make for no comparison

having said that I prefer Hendix's version.

the song lends itself well to a more powerful and heavy sound.
