A tale of transfiguration, Candi Staton’s rendering of “He Called Me Baby” was originally penned in 1961 as “She Called Me Baby“, via country and western singer/songwriter Harlan Howard. Not the song’s first r&b interpretation, Staton’s take was preceded in 1968 by Ella Washington, courtesy of the Nashville, TN based soul label Sound Stage 7.
