Product Description:

Personnel: Curtis Mayfield, Gary Ray Thompson , Phil Upchurch (guitar); Rich Tufo (keyboards); Quinton Joseph, Donnelle Hagan (drums); Master Henry Gibson (congas, bongos).
After a brief stint on Curtis Mayfield's Curtom Records in 1975 which yielded the number one pop hit "Let's Do It Again," the Staple Singers entered into a deal with Warner Bros. Shortening their name to the Staples, Pops, Mavis, Cleotha, and Yvonne decided to continue their relationship with Mayfield, asking him to produce their first Warner effort, 1976's Pass It On. While the album lacked a surefire hit like its predecessor, it continued to blend the group's signature gospel sound with soul, R&B, pop, and disco. Standout track "Sweeter Than the Sweet" is a classic uptempo gospel/soul rave-up featuring some of group's strongest vocals, and the title track features a deep, soulful groove courtesy of Pops' and Mayfield's dueling guitars and the impassioned vocal interplay between Mavis and Pops. While the Staples would never again reach the upper echelons of the pop charts, Pass It On is a solid release by a veteran group who could produce classic soul music like no one else. ~ Timothy Monger
