    most people prob agree with you....not a fan of Dylan though myself....only found this interesting because all the Truckers took vocal duties...and like the change...otherwise I'd find the song a bit tedious .

    This could be a little controversial but I prefer Patti Smith's 'Smells like teen spirit' to Nirvana's original.

    But the 'ultimate' cover would have to be Jimi Hendrix's cover of Dylan 'All along the watchtower'..IMO...

    Deep Purple wasn't original anyway- though probably best known. Original by the composer Joe South; a great songwriter.
