The Staple Singers: Soul Folk in Action

[cover art]

The Staples' debut Stax release included covers of Otis Redding's "(Sittin' On) The Dock of the Bay" and the Band's "The Weight." See the Staple Singers page at the American Music Archives for more on this wonderful vocal group.

The Staple Singers' original version of "The Weight" is also available the 1990 Stax/Fantasy compilation The Best of the Staple Singers. They would later do versions of "The Weight" with The Band (The Last Waltz, 1976) and Marty Stuart (Rhythm Country & Blues, 1994).
