Candi Staton in Camden
Went to see Candi Staton at the Jazz Café in Camden on Wednesday 23 August. What a night! What a woman! But enough about me. What a voice that Candi Staton's got! As well as the hits – Young Hearts, Run Free, Nights on Broadway, You Got the Love – Candi belted out a couple of Elvis songs, a Merle Haggard and a Tammy Wynette as well as some cracking stuff from her new album. Noticed her keyboard player who never cracked a smile all night looked a bit familiar - it was Mick Talbot (left) who used to play keyboards for The Style Council. Anyway, this was a great gig. Sang on the tube on the way home and am still singing now.
