This voice is right after my taste: rough, gritty with a touch of velvet. The two tracks I am posting today are heavily slanted towards the Blues. I'll post them on my Soul blog because Geater Davis is Soul through and through.
Geater was born in Texas in 1946. Most of his recordings have been made in the early seventies. He not only wrote/co-wrote much of his material but also played guitar and was producing.
Unfortunately, lady luck was not on his side, and despite his soulful singing and many ear-pleasing songs, his music never sold well.
He died of a heart attack at only 38 years of age.
The songs posted are from a 2 CD compilation: Geater Davis, The Lost Soul Man (2005).
