This is the album on which The Staple Singers consolidated their gentle folk-gospel into something altogether funkier, and delivered with enough wit and variation to make people stand up and take notice. Until then, the family quartet of Pops Staples and his kids enjoyed a reputation as an acoustic gospel group, who took their subtle harmonising into the 1960s folk scene. Be Altitude jumps straight into solid syncopated southern funk with The World, then eases into what became the groups theme song, Respect Yourself. Verified Purchase.
