Special thanks Moa Abrahamsson at EMA Telstar and Yvonne Staples for setting the interview up and of course to Mavis for spending hours with me on the phone, when she should have been taking care of a nasty hay-fever. Also, a very special thanks goes out to Oskar Ponnert for lending me his pictures of the Staples at the Lollipop Festival. Oskar is one of the driving forces behind Sweden's only pure black music magazine, Gidappa!.
A "you are incredibly kind" award goes out to the unbelievably generous Len Romano, who sent me the "Love Gone Bad" CD as a surprise gift. Len, you made my day!
