Trading Places present a reissue of Don Covay And The Jefferson Lemon Blues Band's Different Strokes For Different Folks, originally released in 1972. During his long and fruitful career, multifaceted singer-songwriter Don Covay recorded in a variety of styles, including gospel, doo-wop, soul, rock, and blues, and his enviable skills as a songwriter were responsible for the likes of Chubby Checker's "Pony Time", as well as Aretha Franklin's "See Saw" and "Chain Of Fools".
Following his departure from Atlantic, Different Strokes For Different Folks was cut for the small Janus label at the esteemed Swampers HQ in Muscle Shoals, Alabama, the resultant groove irresistibly mixing funk, soul, gospel, and rock, all the while working in plenty of Covay's individual humor.
