Don Covay - Funky Yo Yo

In the analog days Don Covay`s 1977 album Funky Yo-Yo was rare and hard to find. And the original lp still is but nowadays there are several ways to obtain a re-issue.

The current rights holder seems to be the Unidisc label based in Canada. The company sells the album in digital and physical formats and is also offers it on streaming services Spotify and YouTube Music.

The original lp is titled Funky Yo Yo on the sleeve and Funky Yo-Yo (with a hyphen) on the labels. Versatile who released the lp was a short lived company only issuing records between 1977-1980. A test pressing of the original vinyl issue offered for sale on eBay in 2018 has the date "7-21-77" written on the label suggesting a late 1977 release.
