Staple Singers: Be Altitude: Respect Yourself [Stax, 1972]
Musically, this is a triumph of the Staples' evolving pop style. The arrangements fit, and Roebuck and Mavis have never sounded more at home. But despite "I'll Take You There," a lot of the material is as silly as the contorted title pun. Even "Respect Yourself," you will recall, has that line about stopping pollution by coughing into your hand.
