Even the greatest singers can get cold feet sometimes. Mavis Staples and the Staple Singers learned this lesson the hard way while recording I'll Take You There. The group had mostly recorded serious gospel music before they were signed to Stax Records in the 1960s. Once on the label, Mavis Staples was reluctant to sing lead on the track because it was so different from what she had worked on previously.
