In the 1960s, singer Howard Tate recorded several soul-music classics, including "Get It While You Can" and "Ain't Nobody Home." Tate vanished in the 1970s, sinking into a life as a crack addict. Now the singer once compared to Sam Cooke and Marvin Gaye is back with a new CD called Rediscovered. Joel Rose of member station WHYY reports.
