If This Doesn't Make You Happy, Nothing Will

[mp3] Mavis Staples: "Creep Along Moses"

Pick it up if you don't have it. Happy Friday ya bastards. See after the jump for a bonus Friday vid -- if THAT doesn't make you happy, you have no soul. "Beautiful..."

Thanks. Two things:

1) These are the same song, right? Same changes?

2) Did they rip a backup singer from the cast of Law & Order?

She sounds great. Liked her last one, going to have to do this one too.

1) Yes, they are the same tune.
2) The drummer is a sieve and drops his stick.
