YOU CAN'T RUN AWAY FROM YOUR HEART * JUDY CLAY * STAX 601022 * UK
Judy Guions, aka Judy Clay (1938 - 2001) sang Gospel with The Drinkard Sisters, she made her debut as Judy Clay in 1961 with More Than You Know on Ember. Written and produced by Isaac Hayes and David Porter the Bluesy Soul ballad You Can't Run Away From Your Heart was her first for Stax. Released in the US on Stax 230 the grown-up lyrics of the song suited her strong, adult sounding voice (though she was versatile enough to make her voice sound younger in her big hit Private Number with Billy Vera).
