Candi had grown up singing, first in the church choir as a schoolgirl, and in gospel groups from the age of eight onwards, later touring with Aretha, Mahalia Jackson, Sam Cooke and others, and had no difficulty whatsoever in switching to the rhythm and blues and country soul she recorded for Fame. Her naturally sweet voice was deliberately given a hoarser edge by Rick Hall through over singing to get the soulful effect he desired. Country music was as big in Alabama as soul so it was unsurprising that Candi should have hits with her heartfelt interpretations of Stand By Your Man and In The Ghetto.
This collection gathers most of the best of the classic recordings she made with the Muscle Shoals crew between 1969 and 1973, and which had been overlooked for far too long. They are not presented in chronological order and the notes are very hazy as to what was recorded when, and which of them were singles and which were album cuts. Eight A-sides and nine B-sides are actually included, with all but one A-side (Love Chain, from 1973) and three B-sides (tracks 13, 19 and 26) also duplicated on her first three albums.
In fact, the first two albums are present in full.Read more ›
There's the sweetness in Candi's voice on the tender, but dramatic ballads "How Can I Put Out the Flame (When You Keep the Fire Burning)," "Sure As Sin" and Otis Redding's "That's How Strong My Love Is."
The cd also features Candi's biggest Fame hits such as her earth-shaking boogie on "Stand By Your Man" and her Grammy nominated "In the Ghetto." There's also the chart scorchers such as "Evidence," "Mr. & Mrs. Untrue" and "Love Chain." candi's smoky songs about unrequited love, adultery and the sweet blues is intoxicating and an unearthed treasure. I highly recommend this cd to anyone who likes classic soul, blues and passionate singing. This is A+++++++ Recently saw Candi on Jools Holland's Hootenany and she still has the sass and swagger that made these recordings so great and so precious.
To borrow a contemporary line from Outkast its !!!!!SOUTHERNPLAYALISTICADDILLACMUZIK!!!!!!!!
Nearly every track a winner, from up tempo to 'down home' material her winsome slightly nasal voice never ''over-souls' and the Fame Studios back up band is on top form.Wonderful baying horns,marvellous guitar infills etc etc,empathy and sympathy perfection.Dare I say even better than Stax?No mention of who they are, that I can find ,on the liner notes.Ever since Ray Charles 'went country' in 1962 I was a fierce critic of this crossover music.Candi (and Joe Simon come to that) have changed my point of view.Stand By Your Man and Mr and Mrs Untrue , being great examples of the genre.
This CD on the car player has made my business trips around the country a pleasure.But beware you don't run in to the back of a truck while you are in soul ecstasy!.

Some fantastic tracks halfway between groovy funk and classic soul music. Read more
I've always liked Candi Staton since 'Young Hearts Run Free' days. This CD is of course much earlier and in someways very much a CD of its time because of the songs content... Read morePublished on 23 Jun. 2014 by Christine Dixon
Despite the poor material and weak lyrics, this album, the last from Candi Staton's Warner years, is saved by the strength of her voice and interpretation. Read morePublished on 1 Oct. 2013 by C. C. Graeme
