Sharon Jones – Dropped In To See What Condition

Long before Mark Ronson ‘discovered’ the Dap Kings and used them on Amy Winehouse’s recent award-winning album Back To Black, they were performing with the wonderful Sharon Jones as their regular singer.

Most people will know the Kenny Rogers version of this song featured in the fantastic Coen Brothers movie, The Big Lebowski. Well, this is the funked-up, soul take on it.

Forget the plastic R&B that dominates the US charts currently – this is old-school funk of the Aretha Franklin/James Brown variety.

Oh, and dig the crazy dancing and outfits in this video!
