I heard Mavis do this last night in Prospect Park and it was funky.

I find that no matter what the question, Mavis Staples is the answer.   2

A cover of the Funkadelic tune from their '71 album Maggot Brain. I'm not sold on the new album, One True Vine, by this Chicago gospel and soul icon. Like her previous one, '10's You Are Not Alone, it was produced by Jeff Tweedy; whereas that record had a celebratory feel, every song on the new one seems restricted to a drab simmer. The difference may be that Tweedy and his son Spencer play most of the instruments on One True Vine. This track is my favorite, and Mavis doesn't even sing on the majority of it (Donny Gerard gets all the good lines). Nonetheless, while I can't recommend the album, this song has rattled in my head more than any other this week.   2
