    Any suggestions where to find a list of all the available releases of this tune? Do you know of one to add to the record? Thanks for your input.

    My initial reply was going to just be a mention of the cover on XTC's debut album "White Music", but instead, this would be a good starting point.
    You might also want to consider going to an online store like CDNow and searching for 'All Along The Watchtower' as the song title.

    Adam - The XTC tip alone would have been appreciated (fergot that 'un), but the link calls for a dividend!
    Thanks for the time savings.

    Neil Young and Booker T and the MG's at Bobfest is avaiable commercially on CD.

    Dylan and the Dead has it I believe.

    Jimi of course, it's on the BBC sessions too for an alternate version.

    I know I'm missing one that I own or something...

    I'm better at Neil Young covers as I'm a way bigger Neil Young fan then a Bob fan.

    Gentlemen,
    Heartfelt thanks to all for your input. The project will have to be limited to artists for the first edition. A few will get multiple entries when the performance demands it. Still, perhaps some day when my only concerns are sitting on the porch in my rocking chair, kicking my old yellow dog, I'll be able assemble all the versions. Again, thank you.
    Jerrod, you are a God. I regard such time and effort a gift, it will be remembered. In addition, anyone who quotes Bill automatically has permission to call me at 3 a.m. for bail and a ride.

    "I've read the Bible, and no where in it did I see the words "bunny" or "chocolate". - Bill Hicks
