    If All I Was Was Black

    "Mavis has done it all and worked with
    just about everybody from Bob Dylan to
    Prince to Jeff Tweedy She still is singing
    for justice and equality and influencing a
    new generation of musicians and fans."
    - President Barack Obama


    A voice of reassurance in troubled times." - Chicago Tribune


    "Rather than protest the state of the world, Staples is toasting
    human endurance-- hers as well as ours." - Pitchfork


    "a voice that has lost none of its gutsy power since she unleashed
    it, some six decades ago." - New York Times


    MAVIS STAPLES is an American Music legend. She
    was at the forefront of the civil rights movement in the
    1960's, as singer for the legendary gospel group, The
    Staples Singers. Mavis, along with her father, Pops,
    and siblings marched and worked alongside Dr. Martin
    Luther King, Jr on the fight for equality in this country.


    In December 2016, Mavis went to Washington, DC
    to receive the coveted Kennedy Center Honors from
    President Obama, with whom she has had a long
    standing friendship. Mavis invited Wilco frontman and
    dear friend, Jeff Tweedy as her guest for the weekend's
    festivities. The two spent hours discussing the
    current events and how today's fight for equality is
    very similar to those in the '60s. Inspired by these
    events, Mavis and Jeff got together and wrote Mavis'
    new album, If All I Was Was Black, produced by Jeff
    Tweedy. The new album is a perfect message for our
    time and is by far Mavis' best work to date.

    Only For The Lonely

    Mavis Staples has worn many hats over the years - that of an uplifting gospel singer, a civil rights activist, soulful frontwoman for the Staple Singers, a solo artist, and, most recently, the subject of new documentary Mavis!. Released 45 years ago, 1970's Only for the Lonely marked the R&B star's second solo effort. AllMusic.com proclaims the album to be "one of the best LPs Mavis Staples ever recorded [Staples'] energy, delivery, timing, and technique were consistently awesome."

    You Are Not Alone

    Soul Gospel Legend at the Top of Her Game: Staples Declared Best Artist at 2010's Lollapalooza Festival



    Hallelujah: You Are Not Alone Might Be the Best New Album You Hear in 2010



    Stellar Set Produced by Wilco's Jeff Tweedy and Features Songs by Allen Toussaint, John Fogerty, Tweedy, Randy Newman, and More



    The best album you hear in 2010? You Are Not Alone will be at the top of the list. This is music that's timeless, soulful, and pertinent, performed with an energy and commitment that burns with the same level of conviction as Mavis Staples' belief in a higher power. Here's a record that will change your life and elevate your mood. Just as its two main architects intended.



    When Wilco leader Jeff Tweedy and Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Mavis Staples sat down to talk about what they wanted her new album to sound like, they both turned to the original spiritual roots of the Staples Singers as a backbone. Both wanted to make a record about connection, about reaching out to someone through the power of music. What they achieved is the album of Staples' career, a warm, powerful, spiritual, and fervent collection of brilliantly chosen and interpreted songs.



    Produced by fellow Chicagoan Jeff Tweedy at Wilcos studio The Loft, the intimate and textured production--glorious on LP--mixes traditional gospel numbers with two new songs written for Mavis by Tweedy, plus her unique interpretations of songs by Pops Staples, Randy Newman, Allen Toussaint, John Fogerty, Rev. Gary Davis and Little Milton. Backed by Mavis smoking touring band (Rick Holmstrom, guitar, vocals; Jeff Turmes, bass, vocals; Stephen Hodges, drums; Donny Gerrard, background vocals) and featuring guest turns from Tweedy and Wilcos Patrick Sansone, with background vocals by Kelly Hogan and Nora OConnor, the album cradles Mavis exquisite voice, allowing her to stretch out emotionally on tracks like Randy Newmans Losing You and the Creedence Clearwater Revival chesnut Wrote a Song For Everyone.



    The two songs Jeff wrote for Mavis meld seamlessly into the vibe and theme of the album: He would listen to my conversations, my words, and then feed off that. The songs he wrote take me places I wouldnt normally go, says Mavis.



    Already one of the bestâ€received releases of 2010, Mavis message of joy and redemption has found the setting it has always deserved. Truly, a must-own album that will last you a lifetime.

    Your Good Fortune

    In conjunction with the new career documentary film Mavis! which premieres at SXSW Film this spring,
    ANTI- is pleased to announce a unique collaboration between two generations of ANTI- artists. For the recording
    of the EP Your Good Fortune, gospel and soul legend Mavis Staples went into the studio with new
    ANTI- singer-songwriter-producer Son Little, recording two new Son Little original songs, and two vivid
    reworkings of Staple Singers classics. To hear Mavis' clarion voice bedded in Son Little's ancient/modern
    swirl of swamp guitar and b-boy programming is to discover the knife edge of Mavis Staples' art.

    One True Vine

    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 song 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
    Singer's "I Like the Things About Me." Tweedy and Staples have constructed
    a dense narrative arc, that starts with the literal soulsearching of Sparhawk's
    "One Holy Ghost" and Tweedy's "Jesus Wept," and then breaks wide open
    with Nick Lowe'ssoaring "Far Celestial Shores," a song he wrote for Mavis
    after touring together with Wilco. After that,the album builds to full tent
    revival mode, as the dark night of the soul passes and joy arrives in the form
    of Mavis' glorious voice. Closing out with Tweedy's rapturoustitle track,
    One True Vine truly builds on the promise of You Are Not Alone, and will
    delight the myriad fans discovering Mavis for the first time though her
    Grammy wins and performances, her White House performance in the
    tribute to Memphis Soul, and the glorious second act of this American icon.

    Rehab Reunion

    Rehab Reunion, Hornsby's piano-free new album, features guest appearances by Bon Iver's Justin Vernon as well as the magisterial soul-gospel singer Mavis Staples. Recorded in Williamsburg with The Noisemakers, produced by Hornsby, it's a trenchantly sung ten-song collection that spins into intricate dramatic scenes mundane things like skipping town ("M.I.A. in M.I.A.M.I."), calculating gratuities at restaurants ("Tipping"), and airport security as sensual experience ("TSA Man"). But it also captures rarer stretches of life that seek or attain transcendence.

    The Invisible Way

    The Invisible Way is Low's tenth album in 20 years as a band. Low's Alan Sparhawk says of the album: "While driving though Chicago, on tour, we stopped finally to visit Wilco at their studio, The Loft. They had invited us to come check it out several times over the years, but this would finally be the day. It's a great place-a sea of instruments in a relaxed, open working environment. It's cool, but what really converted us was hearing the new Mavis Staples tracks they were working on: big, simple, raw, and intimate. How is this different from any other Low record? Mimi sings lead on five of the eleven songs (she usually only does one or two, despite being a fan favorite). Piano, lots of piano...and an acoustic guitar. Songs about intimacy, the drug war, the class war, plain old war war, archeology, and love."

    Don't Lose This

    In 1998, Roebuck "Pops" Staples recorded a final session, capping an
    illustrious career as leader and patriarch of the Staples Singers. Unfinished
    at the time of his passing in 2000, the tapes went to his daughter,
    Mavis, who then waited for the right opportunity to finish the recording
    in the spirit Pops intended. When she began her series of remarkable
    collaborations with Wilco's Jeff Tweedy, starting with 2010's You Are Not
    Alone and continuing with 2013's One True Vine, Mavis knew she had
    found the person to work on her father's record. Mavis Staples: "I
    chose this title because these were the words my father said to me as
    he gave me the tape of his final recordings. He was sick and lying in
    bed and asked me to play the record for him in his room. After listening
    to it, he called me to his room again. He was weak, but he handed me
    the tape and in a soft voice said 'Don't lose this, Mavis.' While Pops'
    voice and guitar sounded so good on the original recordings [and remain
    untouched on this record], I knew the songs needed something else to
    really come to life. Something special. Pops deserved that. So I called
    on my dear friend Jeff Tweedy to fill out the tracks around Pops and he's
    helped to craft this beautiful album."

    Into The Deep

    Hailing from New Orleans, Louisiana - Galactic has been exploring their seemingly limitless musical possibilities for more than 20 years. Since then, the band has consistently pushed artistic boundaries on the road and in the studio, approaching their music with open ears and drawing inspiration as much from the sounds bubbling up from their city's streets as they do from each other.
    Galactic's new release "Into The Deep" features collaborations with artists they've made connections with over the last 20 years - including Macy Gray, Mavis Staples, JJ Grey, Ryan Montbleau, David
    Shaw of The Revivalists, Maggie Koerner, Brushy One String and Charm Taylor. The first single from the album is "Into The Deep" - featuring Macy Gray.

    Witness is the highly anticipated follow-up to Benjamin Booker's critically acclaimed self-titled debut album. The album's ten new, original tracks were all written by Booker, produced by Sam Cohen (Kevin Morby) and mixed by Shawn Everett (Alabama Shakes), and the title track features a guest vocal from Mavis Staples.


    'I wanted to make a record about the things in my life I never wanted to talk about. It's a record about self-exploration, about learning to love yourself and opening yourself up to love others, about choosing the kind of person you want to be, about confronting death and appreciating life. Really it's about trying to take control from the perspective of someone who has come very close on several occasions to losing ALL control.'

    I can feel you creep into my private life (Pre-Order)

    Tune-Yards' magnum opus will arrive in the form of new album I can feel you creep into my private life. Thematically, the 12 new songs tackle race, politics, intersectional feminism and environmental prophecies head on. But in the billows of intense subject matter, the album arrives as Tune-Yards' most immediate and upbeat music yet- this is Tune-Yards' music to dance to.


    On I can feel you creep into my private life, Tune-Yards is officially a duo. Garbus is joined by longtime collaborator Nate Brenner who produced and wrote the album together with lyrics by Garbus. Tune-Yards worked with mixer Mikaelin "Blue" BlueSpruce (Solange, Kendrick Lamar). Tune-Yards' 2014 release Nikki Nack was one of the most well-received albums of the year. New York Magazine called it "possibly the catchiest record of the year," the New Yorker praised its "joyful energy" and "surprisingly sweet singing and catchy tunes," and Entertainment Weekly said, "life needs joyful noise like this."


    Since the release of Nikki Nack, Tune-Yards has kept busy collaborating with legendary musicians David Byrne, Laurie Anderson and Yoko Ono, as well as penning the standout track, "Action," from Mavis Staples' 2016 album.

    I Learned The Hard Way

    Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings are already well known as one of the most exciting acts in the nation for both their explosive live shows and their prolific output of gritty studio recordings. I Learned The Hardway is their fourth full-length release on Brooklyn's independent Daptone Records and it marks a bold step forward for a band who almost single handedly stewarded today's return of soul music to its more traditional sound.


    Produced by Bosco Mann and recorded on an Ampex eight-track tape machine by Gabriel Roth in Daptone Records' House of Soul studios, the record drips with a warmth and spontaneity rarely found since the golden days of Muscle Shoals and Stax. Sharon's raw power, rhythmic swagger, moaning soulfulness and melodic command set her fi rmly alongside Tina Turner, James Brown, Mavis Staples, and Aretha as a fi xture in the canon of soul music. From the lush Philly-Soul fanfare that ushers in The Game Gets Old at the top of the record, to the stripped down Sam Cooke-style Mama Don't Like My Man at the tail, the Dap-Kings groove seamlessly through both the most crafted and simple arrangements with subtlety and discipline. I Learned the Hard Way is the Daptone Sound at its fi nest.

    To All The Girls...

    Decades of heartfelt performances and compositions in popular music have long solidified Willie's reputation as one of country's greatest romantics. To All The Girls... continues Nelson's musicial relationships with some of the most talented women in country, pop, and soul.


    Among the centerpieces of To All The Girls... is the emotional duet with Dolly Parton, From Here To The Moon and Back, a song Parton wrote for the 2012 motion picture Joyful Noise. Willie also tackles the Bill Withers' classic Grandma's Hands with Mavis Staples, duets with Sheryl Crow on The Great American Songbook selection Far Away Places, and brings a new shade to his self penned classic Always On My Mind with Carrie Underwood.


    Willie is also joined by familiar contemporaries including Emmylou Harris, Alison Krauss, Miranda Lambert, Norah Jones and Rosanne Cash. To All The Girls... reunites Willie with producer Buddy Cannon, who worked with Willie on his most recent successful releases, Heroes and Let's Face The Music And Dance.


    Having turned 80 years old in April, Willie Nelson has no intentions of riding off into the sunset. Since signing to Legacy Recordings, Nelson has been steadily recording an releasing albums with the same rough-and-ready spirit of his timeless recordsing for RCA and Columbia Records. Heroes was praised by Uncut for being as spirited as it is poignant. Of 2013's Let's Face The Music And Dance, Paste cheered for his strongest and most engaged performances in a decade.

    Rock 'n Roll Blues

    Luther Dickinson enters a new phase of his storied musical
    career with his rollicking and raw new solo album, Rock 'n
    Roll Blues. From the propulsive beat and unbridled sound of
    opener Vandalize, to the insanely catchy Bar Band, it's clear this
    is a unique chapter in the acclaimed Southern musician's
    songbook. More informed by a youth spent listening to punk rock
    than the blues and boogie rock of his revered band North Mississippi
    Allstars, the record consists mostly of acoustic guitar, stand up
    bass and drums and although not punk in sound, it is in spirit and
    the DIY ethos. In essence, an autobiography set to music, the
    10-track LP traces Luther's journey from excitable teen to
    tour-van vet and offers a side of himself seldom seen before.


    The son of the late great producer and musician Jim Dickinson,
    Luther made his recording debut at age 14 and has recorded
    with a who's who of musicians including The Replacements,
    Beck, Jon Spencer, John Hiatt, Levon Helm, Mavis Staples,
    Ry Cooder and Patty Grifffin. He is the lead guitarist and vocalist
    for the North Mississippi Allstars and widely known as both a
    talented musician and producer with four Grammy® nominations
    to prove it - three in the contemporary blues category and one in
    traditional folk.

    Larry Campbell & Teresa Williams

    Two of the most in-demand artists in roots music, Larry Campbell and Teresa Williams, take center stage with their self-titled debut album on Red House Records. After decades of marriage and seven years working closely with the late Levon Helm - Campbell as bandleader and producer (winning three Grammys for his work) and wife Williams as singer - their first album together features eight originals and three covers honed at Helm's legendary Midnight Rambles. Levon himself even drums on one track, `You're Running Wild,' recorded before his passing. Other guests include his daughter Amy Helm singing, and Little Feat keyboardist Bill Payne on piano, augmenting Campbell and Williams' core band of Justin Guip (drums) and Byron Isaacs (bass). In addition to Helm, Campbell and Williams have played with a Who's Who of Music Icons: Bob Dylan (Rolling Stone called Larry's 8-year tenure `the greatest period of the Never Ending Tour'), Paul Simon, Phil Lesh, Emmylou Harris, Sheryl Crow, Keith Richards, Cyndi Lauper, Hot Tuna and Mavis Staples. In addition to his Grammy wins, Campbell has won the Lifetime Achievement Award (2008) and Instrumentalist of the Year Award (2013) from the Americana Music Association.

    More Rain

    M. Ward has released a string of acclaimed solo albums over the past
    several years, along with five LPs with Zooey Deschanel as She & Him
    and a 2009 collaborative album with My Morning Jacket's Jim James
    and Bright Eyes' Conor Oberst and Mike Mogis under the moniker
    Monsters of Folk. In addition to his celebrated work as a musician,
    Ward is an accomplished producer, handling those duties for such
    luminaries as Mavis Staples, Jenny Lewis, and Carlos Forster as well as
    his own musical projects.


    More Rain, Ward's eighth solo affair, finds the artist picking up the
    tempo and volume a bit from his previous release, 2012's A Wasteland
    Companion. Where that record introspectively looked in from the
    outside, More Rain finds Ward on the inside, gazing out. Begun four
    years ago and imagined initially as a DIY doo-wop album that would
    feature Ward experimenting with layering his own voice, it soon
    branched out in different directions, a move that he credits largely to
    his collaborators here who include R.E.M.'s Peter Buck, Neko Case,
    k.d. lang, The Secret Sisters, and Joey Spampinato of NRBQ. The
    result is a collection of upbeat, sonically ambitious yet canonically
    familiar songs that both propel Ward's reach and satisfy longtime fans.

    New Magic (Blue Vinyl)

    Pressed On Blue Vinyl

    Son Little, the singer and songwriter born Aaron Livingston, is the easygoing musical alchemist of our time. He is a conjurer, and much like those of his heroes Stevie Wonder and Jimi Hendrix, his songs are deconstructions of the diaspora of American R&B. Deftly he weaves different eras of the sound-blues, soul, gospel, rock and roll-through his own unique vision, never forced, always smooth, each note a tributary on the flowing river of rhythm and blues. And now, with his second full-length album, New Magic, he has delivered a profound statement, a cohesive creation that captures the diverse spirit of American music in a fresh and modern way.

    The song that serves as the album's true centerpiece is Blue Magic, a Philly Soul inspired number deconstructed almost like a rap song or the best of production savants like J Dilla or Madlib, complete with chiming glockenspiel bells and old school female backing vocals. The song has the appeal of an instant classic. On the heels of his 2015 self-titled debut and the 5-song EP, Songs I Forgot, that came before it, Son Little found his reach steadily growing. His song Lay Down had been streamed over seven million times, he had toured the world with artists as diverse as Leon Bridges, Kelis, Mumford & Sons, Portual. The Man and Shakey Graves in addition to his own headlining runs, and also became a Grammy Award winning producer, earning a 2016 Best Roots Performance award for his work on Mavis Staples.

    The Haden Triplets

    Third Man Records is proud to present the debut album from The Haden Triplets. These are songs steeped in history and sung in a close harmony
    that could only be achieved from sharing a lifetime of sisterly togetherness and a near psychic vocal interplay that can only come from being born mere
    seconds apart from each other. It's been rendered and produced beautifully by American music legend Ry Cooder.


    This is an album expanding on an American musical tradition. It is not pastiche or a tribute, but rather a direct antecedent and extension of the original folk legacy that is being exhibited within these songs.


    Here's a little more about it in the Haden's own words.


    During our early life, we were surrounded by music on both sides of our family. We visited our dad's family in Missouri, where they taught us old country songs they used to perform on the radio as The Haden Family. Our grandparents on our mother's side used to sing us to sleep with old Yiddish songs. Growing up, we often had music playing in the house, whether it be our mom playing Billie Holiday and Nina Simone records, or our dad playing Keith Jarrett and Ornette Coleman in the living room.


    We met Ry when we played with his son Joachim, and Joachim asked him if he'd sit in for our show. Once Ry heard we were singing "Voice From On High" by Bill Monroe, he was in right away. The next day we got a call from Ry suggesting we record an album. We wrote down a collection of songs we all liked, then narrowed it down to the music that became the Haden Triplets album. These songs are rich in history, and by recording them we hope to help keep them alive. - Tanya, Rachel & Petra Haden


    Produced by Ry Cooder (Buena Vista Social Club, Captain Beefheart's Magic Band, Paris, Texas)and mixed by Martin Pradler (Robbie Robertson, Mavis Staples, Buddy Guy)

    Phantom Limb (Out Of Stock)

    Import


    The Phantom Limb's sound is an indefinable blend of classic southern soul and country blues. They blend modern songwriting and rich acoustic music with powerful gospel-inflected vocals. Already comparisons are being made to Mavis Staples, Aretha Franklin and The Band. Their honest, melancholic, Bristolian edge creates one of the most original and compelling new propositions of recent years. The group is epitomised by the fantastically bold yet intimately soulful vocals of the 23-year old Yolanda Quarty who also provided vocals on half of Massive Attacks forthcoming album, the majority of which was incidentally co-written and produced by Robot Club (Phantom Limbs guitarist Stew Jackson and bassist Dan Brown). Phantom Limb's self-titled debut album was the brainchild of the Robot Club production team, whose recent writing/production credits also include Will Young, Skin (Skunk Anansie) and Fortune Drive. The album was recorded at their very own Robot Club Studios (Bristol) as well as Rockfields Studio (Monmouth) and Caveman Studios (Bristol). The album was mastered and cut for vinyl at Optimum Studios, Bristol by Shawn Joseph and Timothy Dennen.


    The six-pieces unique sound has made an instant ascension within the industry. In March of 2008 they played the famous SXSW in Austin, Texas, which led to countless festival offers including Glastonburys Jazz World Stage in June 2008 and a record deal with Naim Edge! The bands line-up represents the pick off Bristols vibrant, almost incestuous music scene, including Dan Moore on keys (Elevator Suite/Cousteau/Andy Sheppard), Matt Jones on drums (Nuge/Emily Breeze), Luke Cawthra on lead guitar (Emily Breeze/Lena Rez/Nuge), alongside Yolanda Q (Bugs In The Attic), Stew (Milk with Ian Matthews, now of Kasabian) and Dan B (Ilya/Elevator Suite).

    What Have You Done, My Brother (Out Of Stock)

    Like many gospel and R&B singers, Naomi Davis Shelton learned to sing at an early age in the church where she was baptized in Alabama. She began her professional career with a gig as the house singer at a little club called the Night Cap in Brooklyn, NY. It was there where she would meet the man who would become her producer, mentor, and friend for life.


    Cliff Driver and his band were just off the road backing Baby Washington as part of the James Brown Revue, and had taken a job as the house band at the Night Cap. It would be a number of years before they would meet up again, but Cliff took an instant liking to Naomi's voice. I liked her cause she had a different type voice, a raspy sound like Mavis Staples.


    In 1999, Cliff and Naomi were doing a club set with legendary James Brown bassist Fred Thomas at Flannery's in Manhattan, when then Desco Records label man Gabriel Roth approached them about doing a recording. Naomi and Cliff cut 41st Street Breakdown. The record made some noise on the then budding deep funk scene, getting heavy rotation at overseas funk parties.


    Over the next few years, Roth formed and developed Daptone Records with partner and saxophonist Neal Sugarman. It took three sets of sessions over three years before Roth and Driver finally found the right combination of singers, songs, and musicians to cut Naomi Shelton & the Gospel Queens' full length. The final result, What Have You Done, My Brother?, is a testament to the singular sound of gospel and soul music.
