Mavis Staples by Mavis Staples

Produced by Steve Cropper (1969 Volt)

Mavis Staples has a unique voice that is effortlessly beautiful and incredibly soulful. This is her first solo effort apart from her family and she delivers the goods. This is raw soul. My favorite track is "Good To Me" which is just soul encapsulated. I must say Mavis looks dope on the cover!!!

Side I

Until I Met You

Sweet Things You Do

The Choking Kind

You're Driving Me

(To The Arms Of A Stranger)

A House Is Not A Home

Side II


Son Of A Preacher Man

Pick Up The pieces


Good To Me

You Send Me

Wow, another fantastic music blog! Thank you for this lp. Luther's version of A House is Not A Home is the definitive one, but Mavis puts her corns and bunions all up in that joint! Thank you and keep up the great work!
