A powerhouse soul belter and wailer, Mavis Staples doesn't have to play second fiddle to anyone, including Aretha Franklin, when it comes to pure, house-rocking, testifying authority.

Stax

Throughout the 1960s, the record label Stax from Memphis gave birth to the biggest names of gospel-inspired soul. Though above all, Stax offers a unique sound, in total opposition to that of Motown Records. While Berry Gordy, founder of Motown Records, breathed an element of pop into traditional rhythm’n’blues, Stax anchored its semantics in rhythm’n’blues, blues, gospel and even country. Both labels evoke the image of a family. But make no mistake, only Stax could make this claim with no hidden agenda.
