Description


This was more than Mavis’ career comeback album — it was her first since 1996 — but it was her life comeback, as she started touring and playing music again for the first time since Pops Staples died in 2000. She went to the Chicago blues label Alligator records for ‘Have A Little Faith,’ an album that was a throwback to her work with the Staple Singers — it’s a spiritual album, at its heart — and featured a powerhouse reimagining of the Staple Singers’ “Will the Circle Be Unbroken?” The highlight here is “Have A Little Faith,” which Mavis performed on Conan O’Brien in what may be the most sanctified moment in late night TV history. The album is a subtle reminder that continuing on, despite deaths in your family, despite your life taking turns you didn’t anticipate, you just need to keep on doing you.
