(Feb. 3, 2015): The Staple Singers – I’ll Take You There

From the 1971 album, Be Altitude: Respect Yourself. This tune appears on the 17th long player by the Staples.  On the Stax label, it was recorded at Muscle Shoals.  Al Bell (Alvertis Isbell), the co-ower of Stax wrote the tune. It still brings back memories of summer at the Fontainebleau swimming pool in South St. Louis County as a kid.
