Hard Times, Come Again No More

Mavis Staples

I go to Mavis Staples for the beautiful and touching song written by Stephen Foster in 1854, 150 years before legendary singer went to Nashville to record her version of it. Mavis shows how to make the song sound contemporary, which is great, since the song talking addressing the concerns of the working folk, trying to stay afloat in the midst of hard economic times. Sound familiar?
