Husky-voiced gospel powerhouse Mavis Staples started out sharing stages with the Dixie Hummingbirds and Soul Stirrers as a member of the Staples Singers until pater familias "Pops" Staples realized that '60s rock packed as much spiritual substance as the Christian stuff – and was a lot more lucrative, to boot. Mavis's two most recent Jeff Tweedy-produced albums continue to deliver the transcendent goods.
