One True Vine (Anti-Records)
by Mavis Staples

FOR FANS OF: The Staple Singers, Mahalia Jackson, O Brother Where Art Thou
Rating: 4 Stars

Nothing sort of a national treasure, longtime Staple Singers leader turned soloist Mavis Staples once again delivers a hauntingly beautiful rootsy gospel record. Produced for the second project in a row by Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy, the collection is equally suitable for the church as the hipsters, but never comes across as anything less than an all out spiritual revival.
