mavis staples

The sounds of the soul full seventies with Mavis Staples and the Staple singer in 1972 on this video of the audio recording:

The Staples counted 12 chart hits at Stax. When Stax encountered financial problems, Curtis Mayfield signed The Staples to his Curtom label and produced a number one hit in “Let’s Do It Again.” The Staples went on to continued chart success, albeit less spectacularly, with Warner, through 1979. One more album followed on 20th Century Fox in 1981
