• Don COVAY - Rockin' and Doowoppin' - The Early Years

Don Covay was an original and very influential soul star particularly for a young Michael Jagger (or Mick to his mates). Listen to any Rolling Stones recording, especially the early ones, and then listen to Don Covay and you'll hear all the same tones, nuances, mannerisms and inflections. In fact in these examples of Don's earliest work and as far back as 1958 you'll hear a bit of Jagger.

This is the most comprehensive set of his original early singles yet released on CD and showcases his popular Little Richard impersonations which were released under the name 'Pretty Boy'.

Fully detailed liner notes.
