Howard Tate :: August 14, 1939 – December 2, 2011

While he may not have been one of the most celebrated soul singers, Howard Tate was one of my favorites. This morning I learned   that Tate died Friday from complications related to Leukemia and Myeloma; he was 72. As far as tributes go, read Funky 16 Corners piece on the man and his music, here, and listen to Tate’s stirring version of Dylan’s “Girl from the North Country” below.
