Livin' On A High Note - Mavis Staples (February 2016)

You may think reading this that today I'm in the mood for the music of Old People!

Mavis Staples is 76 years old and is still making great music. Her last two albums were produced by Jeff Tweedy and for her latest she's gathered up a wealth of fine songwriters to get across the message that she's still Livin' on a High Note!

I still have a lot of time for her music old or new. Anyway, have a listen, there's so nice tunes on it.
