Jimi Hendrix was a great interpreter of Bob Dylan's work, from his definitive version of "All Along the Watchtower" to more rare takes of "Like a Rolling Stone" and "Can You Please Crawl Out Your Window?" He liked "Drifter's Escape" from the moment he heard it on Dylan's 1967 album John Wesley Harding. "Oh, yeah, I liked that. 'Help me in my' — what's that? That was groovy. I want to do that one," he said. Recorded in 1970 at Electric Lady Studios, Hendrix's tripped-out version, delivered with a blast of funk, first reached release on the 1974 Loose Ends comp, and again on the South Saturn Delta collection of demos and alternate tracks.
