Tell Donny to shut the fuck up, because Sharon Jones And The Dap-Kings is covering a song which attained its cult status through one of the Coen Bros. most beloved films. But first, a little background. A few days ago, Jezebel posted a video of Sharon Jones being interviewed about Amy Winehouse, amongst other topics. Jones is bitter, naturally, but also retains a cool head on her shoulders. Read that post and watch the video here.
In the comment section for said article, a Jezebel commenter dropped an MP3 of Ms. Jones and The Dap-Kings's live cover of Kenny Rogers And The First Edition's "Just Dropped In (To See What Condition My Condition Was In", which you know as the song prominently featured in The Big Lebowski, during one of the dude's hallucinations. Above you'll find the Sharon Jones version, the original, and another Sharon Jones MP3.
