The Staple Singers - Slippery People (1985)

The Staples are well named - they have been with us forever - and should be a part of everyone's musical diet.  Gospel in the 50s and 60s, part of the rescue roster of Stax in the 70s with all those self belief and politically savvy tunes (Respect Yourself", "You Got To Earn It", "I'll Take you There" are just three), then after a short time with Curtis Mayfiled's Curtom label, they moved to Columbia and showed they remained current and true to their message - this is a Talking Heads track but as always with Staples' covers they make it all their own.  From the "Turning Point" album.

This is the cover from a dutch promo Epic - EPC 4784
