What it is.

Soultreats is Soulville U-A´s music blog. It´s updated several times a week with a new soulful record. It is our chance to spotlight the artists and record labels that made the music but rarely the charts.
It´s a celebration!

The legacy.

Do not use the comment button for this since there is no way for me, for now, to know which additions have been commented on. Help us be as detailed as we possibly can in our description of this wonderful music.

Thanks in advance.



Howard Tate - Half A Man - Verve

60s SoulPosted by Martin Fri, October 21, 2011 16:49:33

Howard Tate was born in 1939 in Macon Georgia but his family relocated to Philadelphia when he was just a few years old. In his teens he befriended Garnet Mimms and joined him in his gospel group called The Gainors. Mimms also introduced him to songwriter and producer Jerry Ragovoy who recorded Tate and secured a deal at Verve records, where Tate would record nine singles between 1964 - 68. This is Tate's first release on the label, a 1964 record that had previously seen the light on the small Utopia label but was picked up for wider distribution by Verve. Enjoy!
