friday funk & soul

i wasn't one of the lucky few to catch mavis staples when she played the hideout earlier this year, but i'm pretty happy i'll be able to listen to the live album taken from that performance when it comes out this election day...in the meantime, here are a couple classics, recorded in a chicago church over 40 years ago, that were also played at the hideout...& don't miss mavis when she returns to town in a couple weeks with booker t & the mgs! 

related: spinner featured mavis' live version of "waiting for my child", a song pops staples recorded for his second solo album, as their song of the day earlier this week...make sure to check it out.
