Pops Staple and his daughters, a long legacy and tradition of performing in the Music Business. They bring their church and gospel background, the emotion, the heart felt words and rhythms that go straight to the heart; difficult for many artists to achieve, touching the listeners heart and soul. The Staple Singers manage to surpass this feat with grace and artistry. A good looking family with voices to match, with pops Staple old time pastorial voice you can imagine him at the pulpit giving a sermon, laid back and cool the staple singers women weaving in and out and around pops gentle style. Mavis takes the lead on many of the songs her voice is ravenously charming a very distinctive sound, a delivery that is suave and debonaire she really packs a punch in the pulling of those emotive phrases, and not to mention a good dose of warm pulsating attitude, a little bit like "Now folks, y'all listen up, cause we got somethang to say" then they launch into the classic and brilliant "Respect Yourself" I love the line "put your hand over your mouth when you cough, that would help the solution" what a great line. The next classic "If your ready" come go with me again great lyric No hatred will be tolerated, peace and love throughout the races" sublime. Its great to see what the Staples singers have done with cover versions such as Otis Reddings "Dock of the Bay and "The Weight by the Band" great voices that can sing and rework any style of music and put their unique stamp on it. A splendid Album
