    Mavis Staples and the producer of her recent albums, Jeff Tweedy of Wilco, have now completed that album, Don’t Lose This (Anti-), adding some instruments and vocals, and it’s done right: lean, un-slick and focused on Pops’s vividly recorded guitar and determined voice, still finding the unexpected pause and turn.
  2. As Tweedy has done with Mavis’ music of late, he filed Pops’ final songs down to their steely core.

    Along with the new reissue of 1965's Freedom Highway, it's a worthy tribute to a gentle giant of American music.

    Save for the big live band arrangement of Dylan’s “Gotta Serve Somebody” that closes the album, it’s a thoughtful, intimate set.

    A gorgeously produced and emotive swansong.

    The material is faultless. [Apr 2015, p.92]

    The moments that stir the most are the ones where Pops' work seems to have been left untouched, as on a simple, effective version of "Nobody's Fault But Mine."
