i am a huge Bob Seger fan but I LOVE the way Metallica does "Turn The Page! also dig their version of "Whiskey In The Jar"
"Into The Mystic" & "And It Stoned Me" are two of my favorite songs both done by Van Morrison, but I prefer when Warren does them, either with the Mule, The ABB or solo!

1 - Respect - Aretha Franklin (Otis Redding never knew what hit him.)

2 - as already mentioned Hendrix - Watchtower (Dylan was quoted saying something like he is the one who now covers that song and Jimi owns it)

3 - Joe Cocker (Delta Lady) - sorry Leon. Actually, the same could be said for Little Help From My Friends, The Letter and Feeling Allright. Cocker, for a brief period of time, was the king of covers.

Adrian Belew's version of I'm Down -- best one out there IMO
The Who's version of Fire, done originally by the Crazy World of Arthur Brown (it's on a Townsend solo album)
...among many others...

"All Along the Watchtower" - Hendrix

Bonnie Raitt's covers of John Prines Angel from Montgomery, John Hiatts Thing Called Love and Richard Thompson's Dimming of the Day are sublime!

Susan does a great job on Angel from Montgomery, also. Also like the way she does Stevie Wonder's Love's in Need of Love

Blue Cheer did a great cover of Summertime Blues

Eva Cassiday's Somewhere Over the Rainbow

Widespread Panic's version of Cat Stevens' "Trouble" is right up there for me. Especially the 7.3.07 version from Las Vegas. There's way too many to list them all.

Many have credited All Along The Watchtower to Jimi

Just a different opinion, but I think Dave Mason plays THE definitive version

Although on the surface it's just a jam, the ABB surely brought Donovan's "There Will Be A Mountain" to soaring new heights. I wonder if Donovan was astonished how they took his simple acoustic ditty and turned it into a warhorse mega-jam that went on for over a half hour!!

There's a CD by a guy named Chris Smither called Another Way to Find You.

On that CD, he performs my favorite covers of: Statesboro Blues, Friend of the Devil, Down in the Flood, and Tulane.

Funny thing is, I don't care for Smither's original music, but he can sure sing and play some cover tunes - and I love his fingerpicking style.
