If God were ever to appear in a church somewhere between Winona and Chicago to front the choir, She'd probably sound a whole lot like Mavis Staples: warm, wise and boundlessly soulful. Staples got her start in the Staple Singers, a family group that gave everything it touched—be it a trad gospel number, a modern spiritual or a study of social injustice—a mighty glow, illuminated from the inside by the guitar of patriarch Pops Staples. With her last two studio releases, the civil rights-themed We'll Never Turn Back and the brand new, Jeff Tweedy-overseen You Are Not Alone, Staples has reached the heights of the Staple Singers' catalog, singing songs old and new to the highest heaven.—Rick Cornell
