    Mavis Staples is an international musical treasure, and here you’ll find the recordings that cemented her standing as a living legend.

    Listeners looking for a concise introduction to the Staples' best work should pick up 1991's single-disc The Best of the Staple Singers, but Come Go with Me demonstrates how consistently rewarding and even moving their lesser work can be, and listened to in full, their Stax catalog is a soul-satisfying revelation.

    Unlike the band’s recent Faith and Grace collection, which crams the Stax material onto a one-disc compilation, Come Go With Me offers the first-ever complete portrait of the group’s most dynamic, and in some ways, most turbulent, period.

    In all, a cherishable tribute to the vitality of the right-on gospel group whose strides into soul still echo today. [Mar 2020, p.103]
