The Staple Singers • For What It’s Worth • 1967


  1. Good poster, true message! A few days ago somebody on FB posted a sage saying; with a small change in wording I can adapt it to the present occasion: "People are made to be loved and things are made to be used. With capitalism it works the other way round." So much for our dose of daily wisdom! BTW, the Staples crop up regularly in your blog, so I guess we share this liking (not only this actually, looking through your blog). Thanks!

  2. Good quote, so true . . . it seems like only now many of us worldwide are beginning to wake up to it.

    Yes, I'm a big Staples fan (as I see you are too by your blog) and I seem to have been on a run of Staples songs recently; but really, there's no shortage of good stuff from them and I'm sure you'll be hearing more from these parts in the days to come.

    And, hey folks, if you haven't already, check out Cussin' and Carryin' On: A Cultural History of Groove, 1950 to 1975 at:
