Wails and soulful coos

By AL SCHACKELFORD
A couple of albums that de-
serve mention here are Al
Green's Let's Stay Together (Hi
32070) and Howard Tate (Atlan-
tic 8303). Green's album is bill-
ed on the cover as "the Mem-
phis sound" and features drum-
mer Al Jackson and a couple of
the Memphis Horns, but t h e
Memphis sound has always had
more balls than this.Green is
just too sweet and breathy.
The hit title song and t h e
potential hit "How Can You
Mend A Broken Heart" are the
only cuts which are going to
make anyonehholler "Oo-we-ni!"
The second stretches success-
fully over six minutes, thanks
to Green's soulful cooing and
great syrupy background vocals
that are straight from Birdland.
Green's major weakness -
virtual bankruptcy as a writer
- is no problem of Tate's al-
bum. Atlantic stalwart J e r r y
Ragavoy shows a considerable
talent as an r&b writer, author-
ing no less than nine of these
songs.
While Tate has been around
and had the hit "Stop" a few
years back, he has spent little
time on the charts or in Amer-
ica's heart. He has a strong
voice, heavy on high-pitched
wails - hard, harsh soul, like
James Brown with a voice and

material, driven by a band that
includes the ubiquitous Jemmott
and Purdie.
Among the good things: "8
Days on the Road" sparks with
intensity, and you better be-
lieve that Howard has been on
the road back to his baby for
a. LONG time when you hear
him sing this.
The album's only fault that
comes to mind, other than the
inclusion of Dylan's "Girl of the
North Country," is Tate's oc-
casional lack of restraint, his
tendency to brutalize a song and

scream a
whisper.

lyric that needs a

A Tate composition entitled
"The Bitter End" brings this
winner to a fine conclusion. If
you've ever heard Sam and Dave
sing "If I Didn't Have a Girl
like You," you've heard all this
before: fickle friends, ' no job,
hard luck-and-troubles-but-a-baby
-that's-true. Run out and buy
this album to make up for all
the others that have been keep-
ing the Howard Tates of the
music world out of the lime-
light for years.
