Black Diamond Heavies - Sinnerman

AT@T have been running the hell out of their commercials that feature a sample of Nina Simone's "Oh Sinner Man", but they always leave you wanting. You just cannot cut such a great song before her vocals even kick in. This song has been covered countless times over the years, and while none can top Nina's version, to my ears, the Black Diamond Heavies come pretty close. This version just rocks while keeping a level of soul consistent to what Nina put in. Plus, you can never go wrong with a distorted Fender Rhodes. If you're diggin' on the Black Keys like I am, you'll really enjoy these guys.
