The Staple Singers were a gospel group for many years, before entering the pop mainstream in the ’70s. Founded by Roebuck “Pop” Staples, and including his daughters Cleotha, Yvonne, and Mavis, the group earned eight Top-40 hits between 1971-1975. Recorded in Muscle Shoals, Alabama, in 1971, “Respect Yourself,” a song whose message can be applied to any generation, features the drumming of the legendary Roger Hawkins.
