Originally released in 1977 

Roots, blues, funk and soul from 1977 by one of the leading figures in the 1960s soul music explosion, who clearly and directly inspired the vocal stylings of rock 'n' roll legends like Mick Jagger and Eric Burdon, and worked as composer and producer with the likes of Chubby Checker and Aretha Franklin.  

In the 1950s, Covay also sang as member of the doo wop act The Rainbows, a DC institution that at various times had also featured soul legends Billy Stewart and Marvin Gaye. 

Long-time DC denizen Don Convay was a gifted man when it came to music and this shows in his 1977 album Funky Yo Yo. His voice is just beautiful, rich, strong and charismatic whatever he does.
