Proving his boutique label is far more than just a world music shop front, Damon Albarn’s Honest Jon’s imprint now gives us a collection of southern, country-fried soul from Candi Staton. Included here are 26 of the tracks she cut at Muscle Shoals in the ’70s, many of them on CD for the first time. Tough, funky and proud, she sounds like she could have been the new Aretha (who often recorded with the same musicians). Instead, she signed to Warners, who crassly decided to pack her off to LA to be a disco diva.
