Knockin' On Heaven's Door: Original v Cover

As part of the Shoalhaven and Highlands' widest variety of music today I gave the 1990 Guns N' Roses version of the Bob Dylan classic Knockin' On Heaven's Door a spin.

Dylan wrote it in 1973 for the soundtrack of a film called Pat Garret and Billy the Kid, and it became a worldwide hit.

Guns N'Roses originally recorded it for the Tom Cruise film Days Of Thunder.

I'm torn as to which version I prefer, but if pushed I'd lean towards the original - although this live clip of the Gunners at Wembley is pretty amazing!

Here's the original by Dylan - a classic.
