The Staple Singers, Linda Lewis: Royal Festival Hall, London
Tony Cummings, Black Music, March 1974
IT WAS great, but then we knew it would be. Linda Lewis won the cool crowd first, soft and gentle, then hard and funky, a taste of innocence, a snatch of reggae, a version of 'Rock A Doodle Do'. A fine set, a superb collection of accompanying musicians.
