The Staple Singers' trio of major chart successes, the inspirational "I'll Take You There," "Respect Yourself," and "If You're Ready (Come Go With Me)," are only the tip of the iceberg of this collection, which also includes the gospel group's version of the Band's "The Weight" and Sly Stone's "Everyday People." Reflecting the major business changes in the late 1960s at Stax Records, the family recorded at Muscle Shoals in Alabama, and the freshness of the backing musicians' approach to their material is reflected in the supple reggae tinge to many of the rhythm tracks.
