Mavis Staples - Only for the Lonely
Mavis Staples has worn many hats over the years - that of an uplifting gospel singer, a civil rights activist, soulful front woman for the Staple Singers, a solo artist, and, most recently, the subject of new documentary Mavis!.
Released 45 years ago, 1970's Only for the Lonely marked the R&B star's second solo effort. All Music proclaims the album to be "one of the best LPs Mavis Staples ever recorded... Staples' energy, delivery, timing, and technique were consistently awesome. " Includes 'Since You Became Part Of My Life', 'You're The Fool', 'Since I Fell For You' and more."
