Ending up the week on a Soulful note, with a radio concert by none other than The Staple Singers. Recorded in studio at WPLJ in New York on June 26, 1972. One of the most celebrated Gospel (and Blues and Soul) Family groups in music, The Staple Singers are an American institution, having played every venue imaginable and won every award possible – they are as much a part of Americana as Mahalia Jackson or Norman Rockwell (check ’em out – trust me).
What’s happening tonight is a 45 minute sampling from one of the great singing groups in America in a live setting; the best way to hear and feel the unique and spellbinding magic of this band of legends.
And if you don’t believe me . . . . .hit the play button and hear it for yourself.
