Firmly ranked among the best Candi Staton records, this 1981 album for Sugarhill Records (who specialized in rap music at the time) has remained unavailable for many years. Â· 'Nightlites' was a reunion with Dave Crawford, producer of Staton's massive 70s hit 'Young Hearts Run Free'. Â· Of the album's seven songs, more than half are geared towards the dance floor, such as 'Love And Be Free' and 'In The Still Of The Night'. Â· The record features a nice up tempo pop song of marital reaffirmation in 'Count On Me' and a sensuous ballad, 'Hurry Sundown', written by Deniece Williams, she of 'Free' fame. Â· Candi even tries a little rap on the tail end of 'The Sunshine of Our Love' and gives Elvis' 'Suspicious Minds' a nice dance workout. Â· This remastered edition is finally available again on LP.
