The GREAT Howard TATE....Dead at 72

Postby Matt The Cat » Tue Dec 06, 2011 6:55 pm

We've lost another one. The incredible HOWARD TATE has passed away at 72. He is one of my all-time favs and is definitely one of the most underrated soul singers of the 1960s. He had a comeback a few years ago, but still remains virtually unknown to most of America. His singles for Verve in the '60s, like "Get It While You Can" are some of the best soul ever laid down on wax. Plus, Rudy Van Gelder recorded him and Jerry Ragavoy produced him. Top notch all the way...RIP Mr. Tate...
