HOWARD TATE - SWEET LOVE CHILD


One of the finest voices in all of music, Howard Tate also has a remarkable story. Despondent, homeless and addicted to drugs throughout most of the 1980's, he managed to pull himself together to become a counselor and preacher by the mid 1990's. Found by a DJ in 2001, he was reunited with producer/ songwriter Jerry Ragovoy for an album and he has also been touring. I can attest to the fact that his voice is still as powerful as it was when this record was cut, as I was lucky enough to see him in New Orleans last year.

from 1968...

I'm only familiar with a handful of Howard Tate's tunes and one of those I got from you about a year ago. This is a welcome addition to the, all to slim, collection of Tate's work in my library. Thank you!

Once again I had to drop you a 'thank you' and tell you just how great this record is.
