Get Right With God – Stax

Welcome friends, how’s your weekend? Last week we went to Motown, so this week we float on back down the mighty mississippi to Memphis and Stax. Who stayed closer to their roots in the delta, both geographically and musically. They had The Staple Singers for one, and you know we love them. There was also plenty of gospel popping up here and there in a lot of the music they put out. Today we gots for you three righteous tunes from the label. Marion Gaines is the straightest, gospel wise, the other two get pretty funky, Clarence Smith on an old classic an The Sons of Truth on what’s really just a story about how the Deacon likes to praise his Lord in his own way. So if you gonna get down children, get down an pray.
