Product Description

* Candi Staton's recording's for Fame Records are some of the most essential moments in Southern Soul's history. For the first time ever all 48 of the tracks she made for Rick Hall's label between 1969 and 1974 are together in one place. 22 have never been on CD before and 12 are previously unreleased.

* This collection contains 12 R&B chart hits, four of which went Top 10, including her peerless version of Tammy Wynette's `Stand By Your Man'. Kent have also included every track from her three albums released on Fame.

* This is the first time that Candi's Fame recordings have been reissued by anyone with access to the Fame Studios tape archive. This allows Kent to present everything in stunning sound as well as the previously unreleased tracks which are all of a high quality. In the ballad `We Had It All' and the dancer `One More Hurt' Kent are introducing new classics to her canon, some of which she will be incorporating into the set she will perform on her upcoming European tour.

* The booklet has an extensive note based on exclusive interviews with Candi and producer Rick Hall as well as many of the musicians involved. Access to Fame's own photo archive means that Kent are able to include many wonderful and previously unseen photos of Candi.

A few years back Honest John's put out a splendid CD featuring some of Candi's Fame material. It was an essential purchase and is much tresured.
Now that superb compilation has been trumped by this wonderful set, featuring all of Candi's standout recordings with Rick Hall in the late 60's/early 70's. Amazingly some of this material hasn't been released before, which you will find hard to comprehend given the quality.
Southern Soul music really doesn't get much better than this and anyone with a love of this style will want to add this to their collection.
The music is a sublime confection of great songs, brilliant musicianship, masterful production and, of course, vocals of the very highest order.
Buy it.

Having for years listened to James Browns funky divas and fine female singers such Aretha franklin, Etta James, Chaka Khan, Bettye LaVette, Mavis Staples ... (the list goes on) and then one day come across a phenomenal female voice like Candi's is just indescribable. She was certainly outstanding in those days! Notice btw that Elvis wrote her a thank you letter for her fine version of his hit "In the ghetto". This 2cd album makes a natural replacement for Honest John's 27 track compilation: "Candi Staton". So don't be sad if you own that album already, simply give it away to someone who likes soul music. You won't regret this purchase since the majority of new released track are just as GREAT as the ones we knew already.

Picture the scene. It's a sultry, emasculating July night, so much so that activity other than sitting and drinking and talking and eating is too much. There's a studio across the road, and despite the weather there's a female singer, some backing singers and some musicians laying down some Southern soul like their lives depended on it, and being generous souls they've got the doors open, so the music sounds out.

I don't know how effective a verbal picture that is, but in an ideal world that music would be what's on these two discs, because it's frightening.....in the best way. There are forty eight tracks across these two discs and the old `all killers, no filler' chestnut applies, for once. The perennially deluded Mick Hucknell covers "That's How Strong my Love Is" on his current album, which only goes to show he should stick to growing grapes. Staton's reading of the song kills his from the moment she sings `If I were....' which as it happens is but a percentage of the first line of the lyric.

The birds must be real wilful for Staton not to sing them out from the trees on "Mr and Mrs Untrue" where she takes hold of the lyric from the first line and the horns and strings carry her all the way. Hell, I'm going to have to start a new paragraph; the goose bumps are getting too much for this one.

One Elvis Presley did a heartfelt reading of "In the Ghetto" but Staton trumps it. Every word is clearly enunciated so the pathos of the lyric -something which the likes of both Hucknell and Joss Stone would either mangle or simply fail to get- sparkles. The resulting verbal picture is far more vivid than anything this writer could convey.

"Are You Just Building Me Up?" wasn't even released until 2011, by this writer's reckoning some 38 years after it was waxed.

Completely wonderful. The FAME musicians at their absolute mightiest with a singer who achieved greatness with these recordings. Two CDs worth and barely a dud track. Well done to all concerned.

Verified Purchase
I picked same cd with just 26 tracks in a charity shop , played it and fell in love with it. Then saw this 2 disc version on Amazon with 22 tracks extra.
Had to purchase it straight away, the first disc is being sent to my son who's a dj who might even do a mix of a few songs.
