Musical progression via YouTube

The premise is simple, post an original song from YouTube followed by various versions from its original artist or memorable/interesting/notable covers. Post the videos in chronological sequence (if known) and include trivia if possible.

Here's a start. A classic

The original - 1958

Live - 1958

The Beatles Live at the BBC - 1964

Jimi Hendrix Live

Elvis live Hawaii -1973

Peter Tosh live - 1983

Johnny Winter - 1984

Marty McFly and the Starlighters - 1985

Judas Priest - 1988

Jerry Lee Lewis and Friends - 1989

A more obscure song, but a very good one..........

The original version - 1964

the Moody Blues version - 1964
the original line up of the Moody Blues with Denny Laine (Wings) singing

Denny singing with Wings - 1976

Ozzie - 2005

Simply Red - 2008

In this case the Moody Bues version was the hit, but clearly the orginal was a masterpiece. The other covers, well maybe not so much.

Your turn.....

Big Joe Williams originally recorded the song in 1935. This is an early 40s version.

Lightning Hopkins and other blues artists covered the song in the 40s and 50s.

Billy Lee Riley in 1957

Bob Dylan in 1962 This song wasn't released until 2005.

Amboy Dukes covered the song in '67. Nugent still performs this song live.

Them with Front man Van Morrison covering the song in a 1967 demo.

The song changed a little on the Them In Reality Album from 1971

ACDC covered the song on their High Voltage album in 1975. This is my favorite version.

Muddy Waters covered the song in 1953, Here's a performance from 1979

Aerosmith's blues album from 2004

This is just a selective list of recordings of this great song.

Nice, All along the Watchtower is great in every form. To quote John Cleese, ...and now for something completely different. I think this song has evolved nicely over the years. I started out with some songs I liked more, then switched to songs with more popular covers but I just liked the way this one evolved and went in different directions.

George Michael's Careless Whisper -1985

Pedro Fernández sings it in spanish - Late 80s

Tamia - 1998

Ben Folds and Rufus Wainwright - 2004

The Gossip - 2007

The Lost Fingers - 2008

Seether - 2009

Who doesn't love Careless Whisper? The Gossip's version is pretty awesome, no surprise there, and The Seether video is perfect.

Just adding one more version of All Along the Watchtower, from the Battlestar Galactica soundtrack. (Musically, it makes a lot more sense in the context of the rest of BSG's music... it probably sounds really odd without that context )
