Back Road into Town

"This is worth buying mostly for two tracks; the incredibly jaunty, affirming "My Main Man" and the lush, emotive, deceptively simple "Back Road into Town" - one of my favourite Staples recordings. Otherwise much of the rest of the album (apart from bonus tracks like "Respect Yourself", which don't really belong here but are marvellous anyway) tends to be weak on the lyrical side and a bit of a come down after material like "We'll Get Over". But even the weaker songs are still blessed by the extraordinary musicianship of the Staples. "Back Road into Town" is superb, though. If you want to start somewhere with the Staples, look at the Greatest Hits or "Bealtitude"; if you've found out that they're superb, and your appetite's been whetted, then that track alone should give you what you want."

"I have owned the vinyl copy of this since it was released and has been a top album for me. The CD version is just outstanding with 2 added songs that I love also."
