This is pretty much as good as it gets. Written and produced by Curtis Mayfield. With all this Mavis Staples publicity lately, I thought I’d post an all-time favorite.
If you’ve never spent time with the Staples Singers’ discography, particularly their earlier secular records like Respect Yourself, The Staple Singers and Be What You Are, you owe it to yourself. Some of the warmest, most beautiful and stirring popular music every recorded. And believe it or not, they didn’t even need an indie guy to pick the songs!
