Vinyl version. Honest Jon's releases a new studio album by legendary U.S. soul/gospel singer, Candi Staton -- the follow-up to her sublime 2006 soul re-emergence, His Hands. Who's Hurting Now? could arguably be even better than His Hands, once again recorded in Nashville by producer Mark Nevers (Lambchop, Silver Jews), with a grittier, more live, Southern-funk sound. As before, this album hosts a combination of veterans and newcomers, including Candi's son on drums and her daughter singing back-up; but this time, the band is led by keyboard-player Mose Davis, from Detroit funk legends The Fabulous Counts. Again, there is a mix of original compositions, including another song written for Candi by Will Oldham (Bonnie "Prince" Billy), and country and soul revivals by songwriters such as Dan Penn, Mary Gauthier, and Dave Crawford, who also wrote Staton's 1976 disco-hit, "Young Hearts Run Free." Another soul classic in the making.
