Not an opinion shared by Noel Redding, apparently: though this may have been because he didn't play on the version on Electric Ladyland.

Something else I just thought of . . . the Metallica songs Orion and One were recorded by Rodrigo y Gabriela. Dunno about "better" than the original versions as their arrangements were very different animals, but very very good nonetheless.
