    "Candi Staton" [1972 Fame LP - Ace UK-3/29/2024]

    Info from Ace Records UK:

    In 1972, Rick Hall moved distribution of his Fame label from Capital 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.

    Hi Heikki;
    I read your articles about Candi Staton back in Sept. 2023 when I posted news about Ace Records reissues of Candi's I'm Just A Prisoner & Stand By Your Man albums. Also Candi Staton is among the artists that will be profiled on TVOne's Unsung series when it returns in March.

    Thanks anyway [and keep up the Fine Work you do on your Soul Express Website].
