On One True Vine
producer Jeff Tweedy shows respect for Mavis Staples' long career while at the same time stretching the sonic boundaries of her deep catalog. Mavis Staples is an extraordinary singer and her talents are showcased beautifully by Tweedy's spare production and choice of material.
Coming off the huge success of her first collaboration with Wilco frontman Jeff Tweedy - the GRAMMY® winning You Are Not Alone
- Mavis Staples wanted to make their second album together both a continuation of the joyous spirit of the first, and an evolution. With new songs offerings from Alan Sparhawk of Low, Nick Lowe and three new Tweedy originals, One True Vine
is at once a darker and more uplifting album, anchored by reinventions of two 70s classics – Funkadelic’s “Can You Get To That” and the Staples Singers’ “I Like The Things About Me.” One True Vine
builds on the promise of You Are Not Alone
, and will delight the myriad fans discovering Mavis for the first time.
ReviewsGospel - as emotionally-powerful a musical genre as one could name - rarely enjoys the audiophile treatment, which it most certainly deserves if emotion" is what it's all about. As Mavis Staples is one of gospel's greatest practitioners, with a voice that defines spirituality, this album is surely an arbiter of soulfulness." - Ken Kessler, Hi-Fi News
