“Six Nights And A Day” was recorded during a period of limbo for soul singer Candi Staton. She released her first solo album, I’m Just A Prisoner, on Fame records in 1969, but the southern soul she specialized in was already falling out of fashion by that point. She managed to crack the top 100 four times in 1969 and 1970, and even got to #24 with a cover of “Stand By Your Man,” but after he initial succes, she only appeared on the charts three times between 1971 and 1976 (in 1976, she reinvented herself with the rise of disco, and got to #20 on the charts with “Young Hearts Run Free“). “Six Nights And A Day” was recorded in 1974 and released on the unremarkable Candi album. (George Jackson, an excellent song writer for Fame, has a partial credit as a writer.) Candi is in top form on the track, spurred on by cooing backing vocalists, blurting guitar, and an emphatic horn section. If it had come out five years before, it might’ve been a hit. This is also one of the great “days of the week songs,” like this cover.
