The Staple Singers
The Staple Singers were a United States gospel, soul, and R&B singing group featuring three daughters & their father, Pops Staples, the patriarch of the family, who formed the Chicago based group in 1951. They signed with United Records, then Vee-Jay, Riverside, Epic and, eventually, the black-owned indie Stax Records label where they hit their most fertile commercial peak in the early 1970's. In 1967, on Columbia subsidiary Epic the Staple Singers first began moving into mainstream pop markets with "Why (Am I Treated So Bad)" and "For What It's Worth" (written by Stephen Stills[/track]).
