Although the Staple Singers' recording career spans more than 40 years, the Chicago family quartet achieved its greatest level of commercial success during the three it worked in Muscle Shoals, Alabama with producer Al Bell for Stax Records.

This release brings together the entirety of the Staples’ fourth and final Bell-produced album–containing the hits “City in the Sky” and “My Main Man”–with the earlier hit single “Oh La De Da” and, from the 1972 Watts Summer Festival, live renditions of the classics “Respect Yourself” and “I’ll Take You There” and an extended treatment of the Pops Staples-penned “I Like the Things About You.”

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
