One of the most amazing covers of all time. However I wouldn't call this Jimi's best song by a longshot.

Yes, the best cover of all time. The genius of the singer and the song. Hendrix takes Dylan's spooky folk tale and takes the foreboding the song evokes and turns it into an apocalyptic comedown to the sixties and the summer of love in the era of race riots and Vietnam. Although it was recorded in '68, this track, along with the Stones, gimme shelter, is the explosive finale and the ultimate not so fond farewell to the most significant decade in popular culture. Superb.

Combination of all that was good in rock music. The guitar playing is one of a kind.

Best cover of all time? I don't know.

Best cover I've ever heard? Definitely.

Perhaps the greatest cover there is. Bob Dylan live performances are actually influenced by the way Jimi Hendrix played it.

So...you hate it because it's a cover song? That's pretty narrow minded....

Classic. Original Dylan version is good, but this, is absolutely fantastic.

Good, but I think there are many better songs alone on this album. If I said that the song's popularity had something to do with the fact that Bob Dylan has written it, then I'd get many down votes, so I don't.

It's quite a nice version, no doubt, but for me it's nowhere near the quality of the original. And I heard this one first, so it's not a case of preferring the first version that found its way to me or anything like that. But as far as Jimi go, it's one of his best songs.
