Pops Staples: Don't Lose This
Buy! - (Anti-)
The famed leader of the Staples Singers recorded these songs in 1999 (a year before he passed away), with his daughter Mavis producing. She recently gave the unfinished recordings to Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy, who did a magnificent job completing and producing them, with Mavis contributing a few new vocals. Pops’ own vocals and tremolo guitar sound as vibrant as ever, as do his daughters’ bright harmonies. 2/6/2015 - Don Yates
