Candi Staton – I’m Just A Prisoner CD (Kent)
1. Someone You Use
“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 CD edition is a gorgeous Japanese Style Mini-LP package with a 13.5cm x 13.5cm rigid card sleeve and coloured inner, along with a booklet 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.
