This Time Around The Staple Singers


Modern Soul
Catalogue Id:

First released in 1981 during the third era of Stax, the Staple Singers’ “This Time Around” album features titles recorded between 1970 and 1972 that, for a variety of reasons, did not make the cut for the group’s official albums of the period. Some of the tracks were unfinished at the time, and all were brought up to releaseable standard by multi-instrumentalist Herb Jimmerson. All Jimmerson’s overdubs were handled with sensitivity, and the album more than stands its ground with any of the Staples’ Stax sets from the 70s. Indeed, it contains some of the best tracks the Staples recorded for the company, including the magnificent Phillip Mitchell songs ‘When It Rains It Pours’ and the club classic ‘Trippin’ On Your Love’, plus the brilliant ‘It Wasn’t For A Woman’, penned by Homer Banks, Raymond Jackson and Carl Hampton.
