To listen to Live, an album drawn from that Denmark concert, you wouldn't guess this guy spent the better part of three decades between gigs - Tate's voice is in great shape; his delivery is committed, passionate, and fully authoritative at all times; and the fact that he's one of the less celebrated figures in R&B history actually works in. his favor on this album.

Howard Tate was born August 13, 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, who released the album Get It While You Can, and a total of nine singles between 1964 and 1968. But by the mid-1990s Tate had overcome his addictions and become a minister. In 2003 he released the album Rediscovered, with Mr. Ragovoy once again writing and producing, and the album was nominated for a Grammy for best contemporary blues record. Over the next five years Mr. Tate toured and released four more albums. He died on December 2, 2011 at his apartment in Burlington, . at the age of 72.

Tate followed up this work ten years later with 2012's Kings & Thieves. In contrast of the heavy metal of Queensrÿche, the album explored a variety of other genres such as dance-pop, electronica, and adult contemporary.
Exclusively for Prime members. Sample this album Artist (Sample). 1. 30. She's A Burglar. This is an excellent album and is hard to stop listening too. From Tate's falsetto to Ragavoy's funk groove hooks and arrangements. 3 people found this helpful.
Howard Tate got his start singing gospel in a Philadelphia group that also included vocalist Garnet Mimms, who eventually introduced him to producer Jerry Ragovoy. That partnership resulted in three albums, the second of which is this fine 1972 self-titled set for Atlantic Records; if less well-known than his earlier work for Verve, the collection is an equally effective showcase of Tate's talents.
