The Tweedy-Staples pairing does not seem that likely a partnership but shared love of both of them for Chicago blues, gospel and R&B provides the unifying force and it works a treat. No where is this more apparent than on the stirring "Creep along Moses" which is the type of gospel powerhouse infused with the emotion that is at the heart of soul music and is an aural delight to savour. It takes considerable restraint not to utter a loud "hallelujah" at the songs conclusion. The mood slows on Staples dramatic cover of Randy Newman's "Losing you" which is infused with so much genuine authenticity and passion that it will barely leave a dry eye in the house particularly when she sings "Do you know how much you mean to me?Read more ›
I could lavish superlatives on this all day, and other reviewers have given a more detailed track by track review, so I'll conclude by saying simply that this is, in my opinion, the album of 2010. And remember: "The downward road is crowded with unbelieving souls" - so believe in Mavis and buy this album.
is a joy to have the opportunity to consider Ms Staples'
truly joyous expression of a faith of more modest proportions.
As a creature without a soul I may not possess the necessary
credentials to evaluate performances of such obvious comittment
but what passes for spirit at the core of my hairy heart cannot
but respond with warmth and affirmation to a work of such simple,
uncluttered beauty and consummate musical refinement.
Ms Staples voice is remarkably intact for a septuagenarian; it
has inevitably deepened and darkened with time but this only
serves to enchance her impeccable ability to give life to the
words she sings. The interpretations of these thirteen fine
songs are full of light and shade; pointed emotion and unbridled
fun. They are framed with subtle understanding by Jeff Tweedy's
marvellously focussed production and the unfailingly sympathetic
and highly skilled instrumental contribution of her cracking band.
The treasures are many! Ms Staples rips up the rug and delivers
a raucous performance of Rev. Gary Davis' 'I Belong To The Band',
belting out the lyrics with extraordinarily rasping and robust power!
No less so her ripe-to-bursting rendition of Pop Staple's 'Downward
Road'; a call to arms to drive the devil down!
Allen Toussaint's 'Last Train' gets a laugh-out-loud treatment!
With Ms Staples "....huffing and puffing and chugging like a
choo-choo train (CHOOO CHOOO!)" it is simply impossible NOT to
love her! This lady is certainly no "Cuckoo Brain"!!
The stripped-down bluesy arrangement of Randy Newman's 'Losing You'
is one of the album's several highlights.Read more ›
It really is a good piece of work and just commands listening. It's a funny thing but as an atheist I get so pissed of with some "religious" works but his is gospel as it should be.

I have to say up front that I am not usually a fan of church music of any form, it clashes so strongly with my atheist principles. Read morePublished on 8 Oct. 2012 by Victor
I was disappointed in that the production had lost its spontaneity through being far too polished. Come back the "Songs of Praise" informality, a must for true worship!Published on 27 April 2012 by Marmeduke
This was one of those times when I just saw the CD and thought 'that looks good, ' but I'd never heard of Mavis Staples before. So it was pot luck! Read morePublished on 18 Jun. 2011 by Huckleberry Finn
