Mavis Staples: You Are Not Alone
Buy! - (Anti-)
The latest album from the legendary gospel/soul singer is a first-rate set that taps into the bluesy gospel spirit of the Staples Singers’ early recordings, with material ranging from traditional gospel songs and vintage soul and rock chestnuts to a couple of new originals penned for Mavis by the album’s producer, Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy. Tweedy’s intimate production is a great fit for Mavis, as is the backing group assembled for the record, especially blues guitarist Rick Holmstrom, who masterfully conjures Pops Staples’ heavily reverbed guitar tone. 9/8/2010 - Don Yates
