Product Description
The latest in Ace Records' songwriter series comprises an eclectic mixture of soul, rock n roll, pop, R&B and rock gems from the pen of the multi-talented Don Covay. A successful recording artist in his own right, Covay made his biggest mark as the writer of songs for other performers. During his time as an Atlantic Records artist he supplied material for some of the company's biggest stars, including Aretha Franklin, Solomon Burke and Wilson Pickett, all featured here. The set features Covay's best-loved songs 'Chain Of Fools', 'Pony Time', 'See Saw', 'Letter Full Of Tears', 'Sookie Sookie' etc plus some great lesser-known numbers by Mary Ann Fisher, Lena Horne, Dee Clark and others, all wrapped up in a bumper fully illustrated booklet. Other highlights include 'I Don't Know What You've Got But It's Got Me' by Covay's idol and mentor Little Richard, 'Long Tall Shorty' by the Graham Bond Organization (a nod to Covay's underground popularity in Britain in the mid-60s) and a great version of 'This Old Town' by the Staple Singers. Compilation and notes by Mick Patrick and Malcolm Baumgart with a foreword by Covay's friend and producer Jon Tiven.
