Candi Staton: Nightlites

Album Notes

A reissue of Staton's 1981 album for Joe and Sylvia Robinson's Sugar Hill Records label, which specialized in rap music at the time. The album was a reunion with "Young Hearts" producer Dave Crawford. A measly seven songs, more than half geared toward the dance floor, such as "Love and Be Free" and "In the Still of the Night" -- the latter shouldn't be confused with the song by the Five Satins. The set features a nice uptempo pop song of marital reaffirmation in "Count On Me" and a sensuous ballad written by Deniece Williams, "Hurry Sundown." Staton even tries a little rap on the tail end of "The Sunshine of Our Love" and gives Elvis Presley's "Suspicious Minds" a nice, poppish dance workout. ~ Bil Carpenter
