Candi Staton - His Hands (2006) Retail CD
An absolute belter of an album. Candi Staton may be known these days for the odd 70s classic (Young Hearts Run Free) and vocals on remixed club tracks (You Got The Love), but this album sees her tapping into the style of music that Joss Stone has made popular again, and which Van Morrison has been keeping the flame burning.
And where you sometimes get the feeling that Joss Stone is good, but somehow hasn't lived enough to sing the songs, this record certainly makes you feel that Candi has been there, done that.
As well as the excellent vocals, the whole vibe of the record is 'real' - from livemore… drums (not a drum machine in sight it seems) to a proper horn section to piano and guitars. All this gives the record a true 'warm' feeling.
The songs range from good to excellent - highlights include the opening track (You Don't Have Far to Go - a magical piece of music) and I'll Sing A Love Song To You. Neither would sound out of place on an old Stax LP.
Still not sure about the cover of "Cry to Me" - done this time in a Sam & Dave soul stomper style, it's good, but I'm a big fan of the old Solomon Burke one. But I'm just nit-picking here, trying to find a fault.
So there you go - just a brilliant record. If you like Ms Stone, then you'll love this.
