GODMOTHERS OF POP

Candi Staton is set to release Unstoppable, her 30th album of a 50-year solo career, and hoping to score yet another hit to add to her impressive tally. The Southern belle first appeared in the US charts in 1969, with her pop makeover of Tammy Wynette’s Stand By Your Man following in 1970. She enjoyed her biggest hit in 1976 during the disco era, with Young Hearts Run Free. In the new millennium, Staton has collaborated with Groove Armada on 2007’s Love Sweet Sound, been remixed by DJs Frankie Knuckles and Jean Tonique, and had her 1986 single You’ve Got The Love covered by both Joss Stone and Florence + The Machine in 2009.

About Classic Pop

Issue 44 of Classic Pop magazine is on sale now! In the latest issue we speak to Soft Cell's Marc Almond and Dave Ball as they prepare for their farewell gig at the O2 in London and release a career-spanning boxset, Keychains & Snowstorms. We also take a look at their Non-Stop Erotic Cabaret LP in our Classic Album feature. Elsewhere, we have an exclusive interview with the world's biggest record producer, Mark Ronson, catch up with The Proclaimers who return with their politicised new album Angry Cyclist and talk to Level 42's Mark King about his life in pop's funkiest band. This month, we look back on the glory days of house music and Toyah tells us how she brought the punk aesthetic to the pop world. For boombox fans, we take an in-depth look at why cassettes are making a return and we also serve up a buyer's guide to the wonderful Luther Vandross. Our packed reviews section features new albums from Prince, Paul Weller, Lenny Kravitz, Paul Simon and many more while the reissues section includes Pet Shop Boys, the latest David Bowie boxset and Curiosity Killed The Cat. On the gig front, we head to Hyde Park for The Cure's only European show of the year, delve into the latest Let's Rock festival in Shrewsbury and check out gigs by Nick Heyward, Del Amitri and others. Enjoy the issue!
