Staple Swingers The Staple Singers


Modern Soul
Catalogue Id:

From 1971 comes the third album that the Staple Singers cut for Stax Records. It gave them their first hit on Stax with the Bobby Bloom, Jeff Barry song "Heavy Makes You Happy" (Sha-Na-Boom Boom) as well as their second with the Smokey Robinson song "You??ve Got To Earn It". In fact the 12 track album is full of great songs from the likes of Betty Crutcher, Mack Rice and even the brothers Gibb as well as a great cover of Bobby Bland's "You??re Gonna Make Me Cry." At this stage the line up was still sisters Mavis, Cleo &Yvonne with 'Pops' motivating the whole thing with his highly distinctive and indeed underrated guitar playing to create their startling blend of gospel rooted soul with blues guitar.
