£13.99


an eclectic mixture of soul, rock’n’roll, pop, R&B & 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 & 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 & others, all wrapped up in a bumper fully illustrated booklet.
