Candi Staton: Nitelites

Bob Fisher, Sequel Records, November 2014

"As the president of Sugarhill Records Ltd, I have never given my opinion in writing on an album cover. I have often wondered why Candi Staton was not the most successful female artist in the world. Now I have her career in my hands. It is my intention to do just that. Candi Staton has always been my favourite female artist. It seems fitting that Sugar and Candi goes together."

Joe Robinson, President, Sugar Hill Records Ltd

"In 1973, I was nominated for a Grammy Award for "In The Ghetto", Elvis Presley wrote me a note congratulating me on a job well done. I only wish he was here to hear my version of "Suspicious Minds". This song is dedicated to you, Elvis."

Love, Candi Staton
