solitary man in covers

“Solitary Man” originally by Neil Diamond is a good song, but the covers I’ve been listening to lately are better. Johnny Cash did a solid version on his American III: Solitary Man album. However, the one I like the best is Crooked Fingers off of their Resevoir Songs EP. The main instruments are banjo and tuba. Later, a dark organ part and brushed drums are added. This is the darkest version of the song with a depth in sonority that the others don’t. You should try to find this version if you can.
