Biography

CANDI STATON: WHO'S HURTING NOW?

Southern soul is back and so is its First Lady - Candi Staton, who racked up 16 grits and gravy R&B/Pop hits between 1969-1974 such as the Grammy-nominated “In the Ghetto” and the swamp boogie of “I’m Just A Prisoner (Of Your Good Lovin’).” After detours into disco in the late 1970s and a 21-year return to the ...

Give these songs a listen and you won't be disappointed. "When We Wake Up Tomorrow" will always be a favorite of mine.

Finally I listened to the rest of the cd.

Candi Staton has got to be soul music's best singer! She sings all of her songs with emotion, strength, and most of all, reality. Which is something that we all can relate to, you know all the ups and downs in everyday life. I remember listening to these songs back in the day and loving her voice. This CD has it all from sensual ballads to stomping dance grooves! My favorites have got to be "Young Hearts Run Free", "Victim" and "Honest I Do Love You". I was kind of surprised to find out that Warner Bros. did not include "Looking For Love" from the CANDI STATON (1980) album and the wonderful title track from the 1979 album, CHANCE. This album also includes a previously unreleased track entitled, "He's Making Love To You". This CD has wonderful liner notes by Bill Carpenter and gives us a glimpse of her Warner Bros. years. It is nice to know that after all of these years being out of print, these songs have been reissued.....only thing is, Warner Bros. Records should reissue all of Candi Staton's albums! I have all six of her albums and still play them on my record player :) She has also released a nice dance album OUTSIDE IN, which is worth buying at the import price. Buy this album and enjoy listening to one of soul music's best singer!

"Young Hearts Run Free" has been one of my favorite songs of all time (the original 1976 album is a wonderful album as well). When I found out that Warner Bros. reissued some material for this greatest hits album, I was excited because she in my opinion, is one of the best female singers of all time. This album has it all from fast dance tracks (ie. "When You Wake Up Tomorrow", "Victim", and "I Ain't Got Nowhere To Go") to relaxing ballads such as "One More Chance On Love","Halfway To Heaven", and "He's Making Love To You".
This greatest hits album has the special disco versions of "Victim", "Run To Me", and "When You Wake Up Tomorrow", which are very hard to find nowadays. I am glad that Warner Bros. has actually released some of these wonderful songs onto CD, but I want to know when will they reissue all of her six albums ("CANDI", "YOUNG HEARTS RUN FREE", "MUSIC SPEAKS LOUDER THAN WORDS", "HOUSE OF LOVE", "CHANCE", & "CANDI STATON")? Believe me, they are all worth reissuing!! Bottom line......Candi Staton is truly one of soul music's best soulstress and DIVA, and this albums proves just that!
UPDATE: On October 22nd, Ambassador/Rhino Records will reissue two Candi Staton albums on one CD! The albums that will be released are "YOUNG HEARTS RUN FREE" and "HOUSE OF LOVE". These two albums were released in 1976 and 1978 and were Candi's biggest selling albums for Warner Bros. The reissue for the other four albums depends on the sales of this first reissue....so support Candi and buy your copy! Thanks!

This delightful collection of most of Candi Staton's best work includes deep soul ballads like Here I Am Again, As Long As He Takes Care Of Home and He's Making Love To You, plus soulful disco like When You Wake Up Tomorrow and Victim, a dancefloor classic that reappears in a new remix every few years. Her greatest hit, Young Hearts Run Free, is a classic pop number with amazing lyrical depth and a wonderful melody. But my favourite here is Honest I Do Love You, a brilliantly arranged slow disco number with beautiful lines like" "I've been humming for days/Melodies, some you've never heard". The omission of her Bee Gees composed hit Nights On Broadway is strange, but overall, this album is a great introduction to the work of Staton. It concludes with the gospel song Take My Hand, a reflection of her roots. The CD booklet has a very informative history of her career plus some nice black and white pics. What distinguishes Candi from so many other soul & dance divas of the late 70s and early 80s are her genuinely soulful vocals and the intelligence of her songs.

I am a native of Newark, N.J. I remember Saturday evenings, as a child, sitting on the front porch of my house on the southside, listening to 92WKTU's Chep Pedibone, Frankie Knuckles or Live radio mixes from Club Zanzibar's very own Tony Humphries. They would play disco, house and club in such a way one can only make sure they had enough 90min blank tapes available for recording. Then, from a slight distance you can hear the intro to "Victim" being faded in. Enters Candi; the voice of passion, feeling. She carries a song with the vibe preacher giving a sermon about experiences in life and love. From Young Hearts Run Free to When You Wake Up Tomarrow Candi has been there did that. You do not want to miss this one...

To find these songs on one collection after all these years is amazing! When You Wake up Tomorrow ... in all of it's 7 &1/2 minute glory at that ... just pure heaven! Also just nearly as good ... Victim , with it's 8 minute anthem version ... also pure heaven!
Every song on this amazing album is just terrific. From start to finish, a complete winner. Check out the booklet for a very eye-opening look inside Candi's life. Every song here has become a favorite for me ... hopefully they all will for you too!

When I was under age and sneaking into the gay bars of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, I heard "Young Hearts, Run Free" and "Victim" and fell in love with these songs. I never knew who the artist was until I found Candi Staton here on amazon. I bought this Warner Archives release and only listened to those two songs...over & over! Finally I listened to the rest of the cd. WOW! What a great find. I recommend it. Nice mix of old school funk, disco, and ballads.
