Posthumous release of tunes recorded over a decade ago, the style of Pops–the patriarch of the Staples Singers–is unmistakable.  Vocals described as powdery and soulful is just about right.  Bluesy, twangy guitar, female backup singers (with help from Mavis Staples), and clean blues drum riffs.  Produced by Jeff Tweedy of Wilco.
