Southern Soul Sunday 46
As a surprisingly anonymous recent commentator recently kindly pointed out I am clearly incapable of an original thought.
It will not, therefore, come as a surprise to you that I am again revisiting an artist who has previously featured on Southern Soul Sunday.
Candi Staton graced the pages of SSS 9 back in December 2013 with a cover of Mary Gauthier's Mercy Now and her disco classic Young Hearts Run Free.
This time round we are going further back in her long and illustrious career with a couple of early recordings from her FAME Years.
First up is I'm Just a Prisoner (Of Your Good Lovin') a George Jackson and Eddie Harris song from 1969.
We then fast forward to 1972 with the self penned The Thanks I Get For Loving You.
Classic Southern Soul.
More unoriginal thought tomorrow
