More on this Tart Jolene

Yesterday I posted Queen Adreena's unique (to say the least) version of the Dolly Parton hit Jolene. Today I would like to share the version by Mindy Smith. A bit more traditional to be sure but certainly not just another one trick pony "country singer" covering the classic song. I enjoy  a good many of the non traditional style covers of this tune. I mentioned also that Strawberry Switchblade and Sisters of Mercy did interesting versions which I like a good deal. The White Stripes have a rendition that I do not like, but of course that is a matter taste. As far as I can find most other covers of Jolene are mostly done by "country artists" and sorta sound pretty much alike.
