I’d like to blame John Mellencamp, but I don’t really have an excuse for forgetting Don Covay‘s birthday on March 24. Better late than never, and I’d rather do something to expose Covay’s amazing catalog of music in the context of a celebration, and not in an obituary some day. A few selections are below the cut.

Don Covay, “I Stayed Away Too Long”:

Don Covay, “If There’s A Will, There’s A Way”:

Don Covay, “Somebody’s Been Enjoying My Home”:

Don Covay, “40 Days And 40 Nights”:
