Candi Staton - Candi Staton

Format: LP
Availability: Out of stock

In 1972, Rick Hall moved distribution of his Fame label from Capitol to United Artists. This was to give his label more heft internationally as well as Stateside. The first single from this new agreement was Candi Staton’s ‘In The Ghetto’ which was released in May 1972. Not only did the single do well, but Staton received a personal note from Elvis Presley telling her how much he had enjoyed her version of the songs. Two more successful singles – ‘Lovin’, You, Lovin’ Me’ and ‘Do It In The Name Of Love’ – followed before her third Fame album – Candi Staton – became the first LP to be distributed under the new agreement with United Artists. Containing all three singles and B-sides like ‘Do It In The Name Of Love’ and ‘The Thanks I Get For Loving You’ Candi Staton is a ten track beauty, a fantastic album and a cornerstone of Southern Soul.
