OUT TODAY: Mavis Staples Live: Hope At The Hideout

Mavis Staples' new album, Live: Hope At The Hideout, is in stores today. Make sure to go out and buy it!

- "She sat in at lunch counters and marched with King to protest segregation in America in the 1960s. Now Mavis' marvelous new Live: Hope at the Hideout revisits that era with personal recollections and brilliantly evoked songs from (or recast for) the movement...if this concert doesn't get your heart pumping, check your pulse." -Philadelphia Daily News

- "Blistering...remarkable." -Time Out Chicago

- "Her voice's laryngitic burr is extraordinarily potent for a 69-year old, and there's a frisson of hope discernible on the delivery of a song like "Eyes On The Prize," a civil rights rallying-cry lent fresh pertinence by Barack Obama's campaign for the US presidency." ***** -The Independent UK

- "Simply magnificent." -Detroit Free Press

- "Staples- even at 69- is a geyser of ferocity and depth...her energy is gobsmacking. Following a raucous rendition of "Freedom Highway", which the three-piece band plays as a runaway bus on a rural road, culminating in much cymbal smashing and jubilant howls, Staples apologizes, "I get so all up into it. You know, when the spirit hits you, you've got to move!"" -Pitchfork

- "Haunting and relevant." -Blackbook
