His biggest success came in 1974, with "Let's Straighten It Out", an R&B chart #1 which also reached #31 on the U.S Billboard Hot 100 charts. He followed it up with more hits including "Keep The Home Fire Burnin'" (#5 R & B, 1975) and "Somethin' 'Bout 'Cha" (#7 R &B, 1976). However, the hits dried up in the late 1970s. Latimore moved to Malaco Records in 1982, resulting in seven albums worth of modern soul music. He briefly left the label in 1994 and released a song for the J-Town label ("Turning Up The Mood") before returning to Malaco in 2000 with "You're Welcome To Ride".
Next he recorded one album with Mel Waiters' label Brittney Records called "Latt is Back". After several years he collaborated on a new record label with Henry Stone called LatStone, which issued his first new album in six years called "Back 'Atcha". He has also continued to work as a session pianist. He appeared most recently on Joss Stone's albums, The Soul Sessions (2003) and Mind, Body & Soul (2004), along with fellow Miami music veterans Betty Wright, Timmy Thomas and Willie Hale.
