iTunes Review

Between her work as a civil rights activist, a GRAMMY®-winning solo artist, and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, Mavis Staples has shaped a legacy as one of the most influential R&B stylists of her generation. In her latest gospel-themed release One True Vine, the soulful singer continues to showcase her moving voice on commanding tracks such as “Holy Ghost” and “Can You Get To That”, a hearty, polished Funkadelic cover. A sense of resilience and positivity run though the album, especially on the confident, electric guitar-driven “I Like the Things About Me,” which flaunts a self-appreciation the legend has earned.

This lady is amazing. How old is she ..? Early 70's ..? Wow. I haven't put a new album on repeat so many times for ages. Gospel for everyone. But it's more than that. It's R & B and Soul sung by an extraordinary lady with the backing of exceptional musicians. It blew me away. Thank goodness for radio stations brave enough to play and introduce this music to us.

Subsequent efforts included a Curtis Mayfield-produced soundtrack on Curtom, a disappointing nod to disco for Warner in 1979, a misguided stab at electro-pop with Holland-Dozier-Holland in 1984, and an uneven album for Paisley Park. Staples has a rich contralto voice that has neither the range of Aretha Franklin nor the power of Patti LaBelle....
