Click below for a Candi Staton sample:

Do It In the Name of Love

 
Owner of one of the best voices in southern soul, Staton made her mark with some tight 1970s soul tracks like "Do It In The Name of Love" before transforming into a disco diva with "Young Hearts Run Free," "Victim," and "When You Wake Up Tomorrow."  She was also married to Clarence "Strokin'" Carter during the 70s.  

She later returned to her gospel roots and you can find her these days on religious cable channels giving her personal testimony.

Candi Staton's Deepest Grooves

Candi Staton (Fame, 1973)

Candi (Warner Brothers, 1974)

Young Hearts Run Free (Warner Brothers, 1976)

House of Love (Warner Brothers, 1978)
Home to "Victim," one of her most-loved dance numbers, especially among gay men.

Chance (Warner Brothers, 1979)
All you need to know about this LP is "When You Wake Up Tomorrow," another Patrick Adams classic.  Rest of the album isn't up to that standard, look for it at a reasonable price, especially with "Tomorrow" being recently issued on compilations.

Candi Staton (Warner Brothers, 1980)

Young Hearts Run Free: Best Of (Warner Brothers, 1995)
Well-deserved retrospective covering from Muscle Shoals to gospel tunes.
