Today’s soundtrack is brought to us by ANTI- records, who just released a summer sampler that caught my eye with the magic words: MAVIS and STAPLES. The Staples selection comes from her new album, One True Vine, and was one of the many highlights from her show last night at the Englert Theatre: “I Like The Things About Me,” a new take on a Staple Singers classic.

Solid throughout, put this mix on and do whatever it is you do on another dog day Saturday afternoon. You can stream it here or click the download link to save it directly to your device. Enjoy!

    added I get several e-mails with the same comment.

    Is there any way you can remove people from that service?
    Appreciate it!
