VMP Presents The Spins feat Mavis Staples

Come listen to a full playback of VMP's reissue of Mavis Staples Mavis Staples. We'll be giving away the VMP edition of the album, sipping on our favorite drinks, and bringing together the community in 20+ cities all on the same night.

Staples’ debut solo LP, Mavis Staples, is the first of a series of LPs that should have vaunted her to solo stardom. Recorded as part of the deal that brought the Staple Singers to Stax in 1968 — after years as gospel road warriors, band leader and Mavis’ dad Pops Staples brought the group there to try to go pop, and Mavis having a solo career was part of the negotiations — Mavis Staples is the sound of an artist, figuring out who she was and what she had to say, even if she was already 20 years into her career.
