Southern Soulstress

Considered the first lady of southern soul, Candi Staton‘s 1969 LP I’m Just a Prisoner is a pure classic and it’s at the top of my “stranded on a deserted island” records.

MP3: Candi Staton- I’d Rather Be An Old Man’s Sweetheart

Candi’s been doing it for years, and even had some disco hits before going back to gospel where she started.

This one reminds me of Rod Stewart‘s Young Turks but is much more beautiful:

Here’s a track from Candi I posted a few years ago.

I’ll leave you with a cover that’s been done numerous times, but I likey a lot. Wish I could get my hands on a copy…
