Mavis Staples is all the rage...

Check out some early press quotes about the new Mavis record....

"It's flat-out one of the best collections of songs Staples has ever made, a small-combo gospel album that rocks and rolls. At 67, she sounds more fiery and inspired than ever." -Chicago Tribune

"righteous passion and dignity" - USA Today

"Even as she mourns Katrina, hope remains the strongest quality in Staples' voice - and this album trembles with it." - VIBE

"Staples calls it like it is, not just how it was, from Katrina to Kabul. By the third track, you'll be shouting along." – DOWNBEAT

“It’s hard not to be won over by the project’s eerie majesty” – Uncut

"An album that can only add to her legend." – Mojo

“Cooder and Staples work well together, his epic sound-scapes pushing her to sing in a fiery way….Stunning”- London Times
