Born in Charleston, TN in 1939, Benny Latimore was influenced by country music, his Baptist church choir, and the Blues. WLAC, via the strong evening signal from Nashville, was a favorite in Latimore’s youth.

Benny Latimore, who was produced by Steve Alaimo, describes “The Miami Sound” as a kind of combination of R&B and Jazz.

In a career spanning over 35 years and beginning with recordings in the1960s for Miami music legend Henry Stone, the gems on this CD were cut on the Dade label long before Benny’s success on the Glades/T.K. label. These early recordings for Dade are solid deep soul, graced by Latimore’s deep, sultry voice.

Included on this disc are the much sought after 1965 hits, “I Can’t Go On Anymore” and “Rain From the Sky”, originally recorded on Stone’s Blade label. These are treasures that until now only a few collectors were lucky enough to have. Today we bring them to you for the world to hear.
“Sensational” really is the best word to describe Latimore. He proved to be extremely adept as both a superlative vocalist and keyboard player par excellence. Benny Latimore is Florida’s master soul stylist.

  2. I am looking for the song “Ain’t Nobody Gonna Make Me Change My Mind” by Bennie Latimore. It use to be on YouTube, but for some reason it is not there anymore. Can you locate that particular song for me, or the album that it is on?
