Most remakes and covers of songs, really don't turn out as well as the orginal but every now and then you get a "good one". Here's a few of my favorites.

Jimi Hendrix remake of Dylan's "All Along the Watchtower"
Gregg Allman remake of Jackson Browne's "These Days"
Warren Haynes remake of U2's "One"
Arthea Frankin remake of Otis Redding's "Respect"
Otis Redding remake of the Rolling Stone's "Satisfaction"

Jimi's- All Along the Watchtower.
He took that song and made it his own. Even Dylan call's it the definitive version of the song.
Rarely do you see someone remake a song, and change it so drastically.

4.Sinatra doing Harrison's "Something"
5.Cream--Spoonful
6.Garcia doing Dylan's "Tangled Up In Blue" or Beatles "Dear Prudence"
7.The Band--Moondog Matinee album covers oldies rockers with a "BAND" feel
8.The Band--"Don't Do It"
9.Albert King doing Elmore's "The Sky is Crying" & then the ABB takin it on!!!
10.Leon Russell--doin lots of great covers but,"Jumpin Jack Flash/Youngblood" are awesome & timeless...also his interpretation of Harrison's "Beware of Darkness"

That covers it for the moment!!

I've always liked Jimi Hendrix's cover of Bob Dylan's All Along The Watchtower.

There's been numerous threads of this ilk -- Capn, DB & GS's version of LM from Falls Church Va I like too -- imperfections and all -- and the imperfections are there but what makes it fun is how they stay with it & pull it all together -- that was a fine band, w/Danny, David Stoltz, Kris etc

Elvis's cover of Big Mama Thornton's Hound Dog
The ABB's cover of Elvis's I Beg Of You
Stephen Still's cover of the ABB's Midnight Rider
Rod Stewart's cover of Cut Across Shorty (forgotten who did it originally)
Zeppelin's covers of Willie Dixon tunes on their first album
Stones covers of Love In Vain (Rob't Johnson), Stop Breakin' Down (Rob't Johnson), Shake Your Hips (Slim Harpo)
... & on and on

HEY JOE was a Billy Roberts tune that many 60s artists covered. Most prominent is Jimi Hendrix's versions. Nobody can argue that Jimi's was the ultimate version.

WITH A LITTLE HELP FROM MY FRIENDS Joe Cocker's Woodstock version, a little bit more exciting than the studio version.

MOUNTAIN JAM of course is based on Donovan's "There Is A Mountain." The ABB went to amazing new heights on this mountain!!

HELLO MARY LOU by Creedence Clearwater Revival. The tune was popularized by Rick Nelson, but the version I like is found on CCR's much derided 1972 LP "Mardi Gras." This one sticks in your head.

I laugh when I hear this on the radio. It has to be one of the most twisted lyrics to ever get airplay.

New Riders of the Purple Sage's live version of this one from their Home, Home on the Road album -- that's the one that sticks in my mind -- killer foot-stomping stuff -- Buddy Cage is awesome on the pedal steel.

Delbert McClinton covering John Hiatt's:

"Have a Little Faith in me"

and Etta James' cover of "At Last"

Both make the hair on the back of my neck stand up...

Dave Mason-Take It To The Limit(on Certified Live, much better than the original)
Susan Tedeschi- Don't Think Twice.
IMO Susan is making this song her own, as many other artists have done over the years with Dylan songs.
