Tate’s Soul Triumph

Howard Tate is back, and he still has what it takes.

This ’60s soul singer went missing for more
than three decades, resurfacing in 2001 after conquering private demons. Against all odds, Rediscovered is a triumph. Tate balances youthful intensity and dark wisdom. His urgent vocals, dotted by thrilling falsetto trills, blend Robert Cray’s melancholy
blues and Al Green’s sweet soul. With different lyrics, this could be gospel music, but “Sorry Wrong Number” and “Either Side of the Same Town” tell haunting stories of heartbreak, while “Organic Love (100% Natural)” delivers a funky come-on. Best of all, the album includes a stunning new recording of “Get It While You Can,” once covered by Janis Joplin.
