iTunes Review

This is a treasure. Recorded a year before the death of Roebuck “Pops” Staples, it's our chance to hear a musical icon’s final work. Shortly before passing in 2000, Pops—the patriarch of The Staple Singers—told his daughter Mavis: “Don’t lose this.” She didn’t. Mavis, who recorded some of her own vocals for this release, enlisted Jeff Tweedy to overdub bass and help with production. Tweedy’s son Spencer plays drums. The result is vintage Pops—the trademark tremolo guitar tone, spine-tingling vocals, and uplifting, socially conscious lyrics. Featuring several originals, two standards, and a live Bob Dylan tune, the entire album is strong; the backstory only adds to its poignancy.

Lesson in music

If you think Drake, Kayne, Taylor Swift, and the Florida Georgia Line is real music, then you got a thing or two to learn about the roots, where it all came from and the artists you like need to do the same thing, This is a great place to start.

Oh. My. God.

This is some amazing, old-line stuff. Buy it.

Album of the Year

Cheers to Mavis Staples and Jeff Tweedy, who lovingly released this last recording by the late and legendary Roebuck "Pops" Staples. For the lovers of roots, blues and simply great music. Life gets no better than "Sweet Home!" Thank you, thank you, Pops. And to Mavis and Tweedy, what lovely production and a soulful remembrance.
