Mavis Staples’ gospel power, Pops Staples’ mellow voice, the Muscle Shoals Rhythm section laying down the funk groove (with the help of the Memphis Horns and a Moog synthesizer) and Al Bell producing – what more could one ask for? A Stax classic from the peak of the soul era, this 1972 release delivered three top 10 R&B hits, with I’ll Take You There shooting to the top of the charts and Respect Yourself holding position number two. Recorded in part at the ex-casket factory at Muscle Shoals studio on an MCI 16 track with overdubs done on a 16 track 3M M56, this album defines the soul of the 70’s.
