The gospel group Staples Jr. Singers has won world-wide recognition almost fifty years after the release of their first and only album, When Do We Get Paid (1975)! A family band (they started out as teenagers) comprising two brothers and a sister, the Browns from Aberdeen have been given a new lease on life after their album was re-released by Luaka Bop (David Byrne’s label) to glowing reviews. Their blend of incantatory funk, sonorous guitar, simple arrangements, the extremes of female vocal range in call-and-response counterpoint was termed “heavenly music” by Der Freitag, and Die Zeit described it as “music of the past oriented towards the future”.
