And Loud Flows The Don

Don Covay, who sadly left us back in 2015, had a long and distinguished career as a soul singer and songwriter starting way back in the 1950s. In my humble opinion he was at his peak as a performer in the early 1970s. To support my case here is a track each from two great albums from that period, "Different Strokes For Different Folks" (1972) and the very modestly titled "Super Dude 1" (1973).

"Sweet Thang" - Don Covay

"Somebody's Been Enjoying My Home" - Don Covay

Don had a few hits in his own right over the years but had much more commercial success as a songwriter. Here are just some of his tunes.
