Platinum Gospel - The Staple Singers
The Staple Singers are one of the most unique gospel acts of all time. Their sound has stretched from delta blues to disco and funk. Late last year Mavis Staples released You Are Not Alone, an album produced by Jeff Tweedy. It won the Grammy for Best Americana Record. The record opens and closes with new recordings of numbers originally recorded by Mavis with The Staple Singers and released by HOB Gospel. The new renditions pay homage to Mavis' beginnings by staying very true to form. Now you can rediscover all of the group's best work released by HOB with this newly re-mastered collection.
"The Staple Singers are one of my favorite groups. They have and sing songs that are truthful and very thought provocative in any decade, love their style and the songs they sing. Nothing but love. Believe it or not I still hear these songs sung in my church that I attend."
