"Good news for lovers of blues with a high soul content! Pam Tate & Her Men In
Blues have released a new album with (only) 6 songs, all in that genre.
Pam Tate is a singer from New York, who after some peregrinations ended up in
Nashville. With her Men In Blues (Bob Hatter (guitar, former Rick Derringer), Pete
Young (drums) and Dow Tomlin (bass) she opened for artists like Hall & Oates and
The Doobie Brothers and now she is already at her fourth album.

An album that opens with the lazily shuffling Forecast Calls For Pain in which her
warm soul voice is great. The song is in style in the same angle as Robert Cray.
Bob Hatter stands out in a positive way with his hard crying guitar. Robert Cray
was also of great influence in the slow blues Gonna Get It Right . This is apparent,
for example, from the text "We play Robert Cray while we're making love". Pam
goes vocally to the raw hole here and Bob Hatter is back on his piercing game.

After we heard all kinds of radio stations passing by, we finally end up with the
languid boogie Leavin' With My Heart in which, due to the raw slide guitar, there is
a slight Southern rock edge. Kiss These Tears Goodbye is a softer soul ballad with
Pam's vocal in the lead. Take Me To The River, by Al Green, has been covered
countless times. Pam has opted for a faster and raw blues version in which the
raw slide stands out. A great pumping cover!

Even A Song For You is a cover. This time from the ballad of Leon Russell,
transformed by Pam and her men into funky soul blues. After all these ballad
versions this version is a relief.

This album is recommended for fans of the better soul blues.


GONNA GET IT RIGHT is Pam Tate's fourth CD,
this one recorded in Nashville with her band,
Pam Tate & Her Men In Blues
, and featuring
Bob Hatter on guitar
. Since forming in 2018, Pam has been
winning fans
and gaining radio airplay internationally.

Pam's pared down sound on this releaseputs the

emphasis on her soulful voice andemotional
renderings of new originals.  Kiss These Tears Goodbye is a
tender song about
fighting and making up. The satiric
Leavin' With My Heart rocks the house
, and
Gonna Get It Right, about a woman
trying desperately to please her man, becomes a
blues anthem for strong women who won't take it anymore.
Her interpretations of two classics, Al Green's
Take Me To The River and  A Song For You by Leon Russell,
secures her reputation as a unique stylist.

Tate writes and sings from her soul to make music
that would have won over audiences in a Roaring Twenties
speakeasy, that hits the listener right in the heart today and
that will sound just as passionate and meaningful in some
future era.” -
