From Riverside, the Staples moved on to Columbia subsidiary Epic in 1964. With Epic, they delved further into the secular realm, hitting the pop charts twice with Pops Staples's plaintive "Why Am (I Treated So Bad)?" and a cover of Stephen Stills's "For What It's Worth." Both are included on this two-disc anthology, as is a stunning side of live performance. Great stuff.
