2008. love a great cover

Lumpy bumped this on the radio this morning. I guess the Dap Kings are Amy Winehouse's backup band? I have not heard of Sharon Jones before but she's pretty good. I love to hear a good cover tune. Sometimes the're even better than the original... side note: Janet Jackson - "Control" was the first recording that I bought on the compact disc format that was brand spankin' new way back in 1986.
