I can’t remember why this album was next on the to-listen list, but whilst listening during the week, we then also watched the episode where Mavis Staples pops up on Carpool Karaoke and they sing I’ll Take You There. Amazing. That song is the standout of the album, but overall it’s a good soul/gospel album with some incredible vocals and some heartfelt themes.

Rating: 4 / 5
