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.”
