» New "Oldie" dis-cover-ies:
- Edna Mae Horton - Precious Angel on 1985 US single - titled as Precious Angels - from gospel album Hymns For Him. Do you have any info about this record? Listed on the single sleeve are album tracks I Believe In You and What Can I Do For You that could be Dylan covers (confirmation required.)
Thanks to Manuel Garcia Jara
- Rocxanne - All Along The Watchtower on 1970's US single. Do you have any info about this record?

I have information about the group "Rocxanne" and their cover of "All along the watchtower". They were a Dallas based 4 piece rock band that released two singles. This was the first released in 1975.
