Geater Davis is one of those hard luck stories - bankrupt record companies, never caught a break, etc.
But he wrote some great songs and created some truly fine deep soul recordings.
Here's "Sweet Woman's Love" from 1970.
Geater Davis' work is highly regarded enough that there are a few compilation CD sets available, notably Sadder Shades of Blue: The Southern Soul Sessions 1971-76. We will certainly be picking that one up for the Soul Corner library.
Davis was from Kountze, a small oil industry town in east Texas. He died of a heart attack in 1984 at the age of 38.
