Have A Little Faith

Mavis Staples
17 Aug 2004
The Bottom Line:

Small contribution to fine album by soulful singer.

Jim Tullio fecit.

"This is the joy that I have, the world didn't give it to me" - Mavis.

John plays mutron guitar and has a small but effective role.

John Giblin does bass and electric guitar, by the way, on track #4 God Is Not Sleeping (now why would he do that).
