Description
America's first family of gospel brings their soulful, bluesy harmonizing to a 1962 album that should never have gone out of print. Their classic call-and-response is anchored by Pops' signature guitar groove on compelling songs like "The Last Month of the Year" and "The Savior Is Born."

"Pops Staple has one of the most angelic voices ever recorded. Together with progeny Mavis, Yvonne and Pervis, they made up one of the finest (and grooviest) vocal combos ever….They transform the normally upbeat 'Go Tell It On the Mountain' into a mournful, minor-keyed lament while 'Joy to the World' would be right at home in a country church (white or black). But this collection isn't about the usual Christmas fare (except perhaps the deep, tremoloed version of 'Silent Night'). It's songs like 'No Room at the Inn' and the swaying soul of 'There Was a Star' that capture the real essence of the holidays. On second thought, no matter what holiday it is, Pops' 'Holy Unto the Lord' will make you thankful you're alive."—Chicago Sun-Times

"Righteous music with very good stereo sound, and 'The Last Month of the Year' absolutely rocks!"—Goldmine

"A wonder of gospel-blues, with Pops Staples' subtle electric guitar rooting the whole affair."—Buffalo News
