Covay had a stroke in 1992. The following year Ronnie Wood of the Rolling Stones, Iggy Pop, Todd Rundgren and others performed on a Covay tribute album, Back to the Streets: Celebrating the Music of Don Covay. He was presented with a Pioneer Award from the Rhythm and Blues Foundation in 1994. He released the album Adlib in 2000 on the Cannonball label, his first album in 23 years. Super Dude I 1973. Hot Blood 1975. Travelin' in Heavy Traffic 1976. Don Covay hadn't seen a lot of chart activity since the '60s, but he returned in 1973 with the comeback album Super Dude. Single releases Overtime Man, I Was Checkin' Out She Was Checkin' In, and Somebody's Been Enjoying My Home were all worthy of high recognition, but only I was Checkin', a classic about a guy cheating on his woman while she's cheating on him at the same motel, made any real noise. Leave Him, Pts. 1-2 is another good gritty track, but Mercury spoiled it by putting the first part on. Album: Super Dude I. Have This Want This. Album Info This Release. Visitor rating.

DON COVAY Super Dude - The Mercury Years 2008 issue UK 18-track CD album - Partly recorded at the legendary Muscle Shoals Studio in Alabama, 1973's 'Super Dude 1' was a landmark for Don Covay, released. Super Dude was Don Covay's only nationally charting LP, reaching 45 on the Billboard soul albums chart in the late summer of 1973, largely on the strength of the stupendous single I Was Checkin' In, She Was Checkin' Out, the ultimate infidelity song. It was the third biggest soul single of his career and his biggest pop crossover hit ever. Recorded brilliantly in Muscle Shoals, Alabama, and produced superbly by Covay, this was among the last '60s-style southern soul albums to have success as a new release this deep into the 1970s.
