Mavis Staples

is on stage since 1948. First as a member of the family band The Staples Singers, then as a solo artist – produced by such luminous figures as Steve Cropper, Curtis Mayfield, Ry Cooder and Prince. But who doesn’t want to give the greatest soul and gospel singer of all time a hand?

a song that reminds you of school
Ruth Brown - Mama He Treats Your Daughter Mean
best Bob Dylan song
Bob Dylan - Blowin’ In The Wind

I fell in love with that song because of the message. I remember my sister and I were walking down the street one summer evening coming back from the store and heading home, and there was a beggar on the sidewalk. And he started singing in the most beautiful voice: «How many roads must a man walk down...». It stopped us us dead in our tracks. We just looked at each other, we couldn’t speak, it was so glorious.
