Review

Review Text Don Covay is one of the most diverse vocalists to ever come out of the Atlantic stables. The man could sing blues, hardcore Southern soul, early funk, jazz old-school -- as in Joe Turner styled rhythm & blues, and rock. The man can sing anything he decides to and puts his mark on everything he does. And what's more, many of those songs are his own. What is borne out by this 22-track Warner Platinum Collection -- a single-disc version of the Rhino package that came out in the '90s, is that Covay's reach was not only brilliant, but his choices were eclectic, and in some cases revelatory. Sure, there are the big hits like "Seesaw," "Mercy Mercy," "Sookie Sookie," "Come on In," et. al. But more than this are the lesser know numbers like his "Fat Man," where it becomes plain and simple to see the place Mitch Ryder snagged his vocal attack from. Add to this the fantastic tunes Covay wrote with Steve Cropper (aside from the bigger hits mentioned above), like "I Never Get Enough of Your Love" and "Iron Out the Rough Spots." Then there are the covers: a stellar version of Allen Toussaint's "Everything I Do Gonna Be Funky," Percy Mayfield's "You Must Believe in Me," and Big Bill Broonzy's "Key to the Highway." All of these tracks are stellar: they're all raw, wild, and wooly by one of the greatest soul men ever. This is a dynamite set and should be snagged immediately. ~ Thom Jurek
