"My father, Pops Staples, started the group back in 1949 when he became frustrated with his present band members for showing up to rehearsal late (or not at all). He sat me and my siblings, Pervis, Cleedi and Yvonne, down on the floor and started to teach us songs. The first one we learned was "Will the Circle Be Unbroken." I never thought that that would lead to the career that we've had-singing for Dr.

Martin Luther King, Presidents Kennedy, Carter, Clinton and Obama, winning Grammy® Awards, being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame…and so much more. I still get surprised when I look in the audience at my shows and see all these young people, whole new generations, and they want to hear these songs and what I have to say. And it feels so good. I'm truly blessed." - Mavis Staples (in the

forward of the box set), July, 2015
