Since taking early retirement I have been downloading historical music albums as if I was a on a mission. I just had to have every piece of music I'd liked when I was younger but could never get hold of, or afford, back then. I have now got a superb collection ( if I say so myself ) of Blues, Soul, and RnB to be very proud of, and this album of Don Covay tracks is an essential part of that excellence. This is a great album to get into if Don Covay is someone you may have missed out on previously. He wasn't dealt a very good hand, in the commercially driven international promotion stakes, when in his prime and got drowned beneath the big money deals that other people were getting all about him. That doesn't stop me giving him the appreciation that he deserves. A good thing survives the hype.
