SOUL MUSIC'S BEST SONGTRESS
(5 out of 5 stars)
"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!"
EXCELLENT Soul Music!!

""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!"

"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..."
