Quote:Bob Dylan has described his reaction to hearing Hendrix's version: "It overwhelmed me, really. He had such talent, he could find things inside a song and vigorously develop them. He found things that other people wouldn't think of finding in there. He probably improved upon it by the spaces he was using. I took license with the song from his version, actually, and continue to do it to this day." In the booklet accompanying his Biograph album, Dylan said: "I liked Jimi Hendrix's record of this and ever since he died I've been doing it that way... Strange how when I sing it, I always feel it's a tribute to him in some kind of way."http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/All_Along_t...Experience
The Jimi Hendrix Experience completely transformed this Bob Dylan song by turning it inside out and ripping it apart and recreating it into this intensely awesome sonic rock masterpiece that it became and always will be its just too damn bad it was released within his final studio album of new songs which also happened to reach number one and if Jimi Hendrix had lived he most certainly would have dominated modern music throughout the nineteen seventies and beyond and changed rock and roll in so many ways we'll never know and never hear...
