Luv N’Haight presents Lost Soul; a comprehensive
collection of material recorded by Geater Davis for
the House Of Orange label. The name of the album is
an accurate description of the life and career of the
legendary blues and soul singer who passed away at
age 38 while on the verge of breaking through.
Geater Davis’ career began in Texas but with the
success of a few regional hits he was able to go to
Shreveport and all throughout the South. He was
always on the move looking for a better chance,
keeping his career alive and the “big break” so many
artists look for. Just weeks after moving to Dallas he
suffered a heart attack and a few weeks later died
from heart failure on the day he was supposed to
record a session. Although he didn’t find the success
he sought while he was alive, his legacy is secure as
one of the finest blues-soul singers of the 1970’s.
Lost Soul features the highly sought after single “My
Love Is So Strong For You” along with all the tracks
from his “Sweet Womans Love” album and a few
other singles that he cut for Allen Orange’s House Of
Orange label including different versions of his
classics “Cold Love” and “I’ll Play The Blues For
You.”
