His Hands (Discontinued) by Candi Staton
LP version, repressed. Honest Jon's re-releases this modern soul classic (originally issued in 2006) by legendary U.S. soul/gospel singer Candi Staton. After years of gospel releases (including two gospel album Grammy nominations), His Hands marked Candi Staton's return to secular music with an album that collects four of her own compositions alongside songs originally written by Charlie Rich and Merle Haggard, as well as the heart-wrenching stand-out title track by Will Oldham (Bonnie "Prince" Billy). His Hands sees Staton returning home to the tear-soaked and aching Southern soul that first guided her career, with consummate backing support by Muscle Shoals legend Barry Beckett on the Hammond B3 organ, various members of Lambchop, as well as Candi's son Marcus Williams on drums and daughter Cassandra Hightower on back-up vocals.

VINYL RECORDSVinyl records are able to capture the purest quality of recorded music in true form. This is possible because the initial recording is captured on an analog source (usually tape) for the ultimate in High Fidelity sound, it is then pressed onto virgin vinyl. Analog recordings capture the bottom end (or bass) while adding sweetness to the high end (or treble) better than any digital recording ever could. Analog systems are still commonly used before they are digitally transferred to CD. This means that the sound then is altered in the transfer process when CD's are produced. The word fidelity means accuracy and faithfulness. High Fidelity sound is faithful to the original sound made by the artist, capturing maximum accuracy of what was intended for the listener to hear. Vinyl records capture those sounds for the ultimate High Fidelity listening experience!
180/200 GRAM Vinyl LPThese vinyl records are produced with 180 or 200 grams of high definition premium grade virgin vinyl. This is a higher quality audiophile pressing than the typical vinyl record of 100-120 grams. These limited edition LP's are manufactured with the hi-fi enthusiast in mind. A 180 or 200 gram LP is sometimes also referred to as an audiophile pressing, there is a higher bass response and an even warmer High Fidelity sound. 180 or 200 grams LP's are typically manufactured in limited amounts and are considered collectables, commanding a higher price.
VINYL REISSUESTypically, a vinyl reissue is a repressing of an original LP, usually extracted from the recording's master-tapes. In some cases, reissues are remastered to lower surface noise and improve overall sonics. Reissues help preserve the music of an original recording, especially when original LPs become unavailable or can no longer be found. Reissues can be pressed on a variety of thickness from 150 gram to 200 gram and offer a great opportunity for records collectors to own many classic recordings.
