I'm Just A Prisoner, CD (£10.68)

With Candi Staton flying into to the UK to play the Love Supreme festival over the weekend of 30th June/2nd July, Ace records are reissuing her debut LP, out of print on vinyl for decades.

I’m Just A Prisoner was released in 1970 and remains a definitive slice of Southern soul. Recorded at Rick Hall’s legendary FAME studio in Muscle Shoals I’m Just A Prisoner pulled together five tracks - I’d Rather Be An Old Man’s Sweetheart (Than A Young Man’s Fool), I’m Just A Prisoner (Of Your Good Lovin’), Evidence, You Don’t Love Me No More and Sweet Feeling - that had appeared as A and B-sides on early singles issued in 1969 and 1970. These were augmented by another five tracks recorded specifically for the album; Someone You Use, Get It When I Want It, Do Your Duty, That’s How Strong My Love Is and Another Man’s Woman, Another Woman’s Man. Like Southern fried chicken, this music is essential food for your ears.

This new edition includes an inner sleeve featuring a new interview with Candi conducted by Ace Records, Ian Shirley about this magical stage of her career as well as photos from the period.
