4.0 out of 5 stars Rediscovered and in fine form .... welcome home!, 10 Mar 2004
This review is from: Rediscovered (Audio CD)
I was in my friend's record store earlier and was so blown away by an album that I heard that I bought it without even hearing the rest of the tracks and what a remarkable disc it is too. Howard Tate was a soul marvel in the 60's but never got the attention he fully deserved and after cutting a few more albums, culminating in his swan song album from 1974, he disappeared off the face of the Earth.
Many thought he was dead, in fact on many levels he was. He suffered the death of his daughter, watched his marriage crumble, ended up as a vagrant and began using. He then turned his life over to God and got himself back on his feet. He was rediscovered only recently (2001) and this is his comeback album and what a fine return to form it is.
Born in 1938, his voice could have faltered but it's all there, the silky smooth soul voice and the swooping, heartfelt falsetto. Do yourself a favour and listen to the real R&B/Soul sound, not the rubbish that passes for it today. Welcome back Mr Tate and this time, may you be rewarded for your efforts.
