Candi Staton

John Abbey, Blues & Soul, 30 June 1972

IT'S BEEN many months since Candi Staton was last featured on the charts in the States. Now, to confound everybody, she has two singles at one time – well, almost! One is her own single, 'In The Ghetto' and on the other she merely gets a name-check as Candi on husband Clarence Carter's hit for Atlantic, 'If You Can't Beat 'Em'.
