The Legends & Heavy Hitters of Soul - Latimore

The Legends & Heavy Hitters of Soul show was held at the Show Place Arena in Upper Marlboro, Maryland, on August 1.  It featured Nellie 'Tiger' Travis, Clarence Carter, Latimore, Wilson Meadows, and Millie Jackson.  I love southern soul shows and was thankful to have the opportunity to attend one in the DC/MD/VA area. 

Ah Latimore, I love this man and have seen him perform quite a few times.  He still looks sexy with his silver hair - he sounds the same and plays a mean keyboard.  I think he was the crowd favorite that night and is an awesome entertainer.  He sang songs that I wasn't quite sure of the title, but here goes: It ain't where you been, it's where you're going, it ain't what you did, it's what you're doing; Take Me To The Mountaintop (previously done by Lynn White/Willie Clayton) and he did a wonderful job with it; Stormy Monday (a blues song and boy could you feel the blues coming off his keyboard); My Give A Damn Gave Out; Bow Wow (I'm An Old Dog); and ended with his signature Let's Straighten It Out.  Latimore gives you a performance to remember.  Bow wow!!!
