We'll Never Turn Back
Released: Mar 2007
The amazing Mavis Staples joins forces with Ry Cooder on this glowing tribute to the troubles and triumphs of the past and how they can help us all carry America forward once again. Lyrics aside, this is music that moves the heart and nourishes the soul. Even the new tunes by Staples & Cooder are strong enough to almost carry the same punch as protest classics like "We Shall Not Be Moved." Hey, aren't younger pop artists supposed to be doing this work and letting the tough, determined old ladies rest?
