Saints & Sinners is the sixth studio album by Johnny Winter, released in 1974. It follows Winter's pattern of mixing original songs with cover versions. After covering two Jagger-Richards songs on his previous album and previously issuing a live version of "Jumpin' Jack Flash," he covers a further one in "Stray Cat Blues" on this release.
