Interesting. I knew Covay did record some stuff at the Stax studio in Memphis. As an Atlantic artist.

Well, as Lou said above, perhaps released in France only? The BIEM mark?

Then again, saw "Sookie Sookie" by Don Covay on a yellow Atlantic label. Released in 1966. He was on many different labels but ... not Stax/Volt to my knowledge.
"Sookie Sookie" by Don Covay was originally on a red Atlantic.  Atlantic Records, which distributed Stax Records' releases from early 1962 through the late 1960s.  They wrote their contract with Stax such that they (Atlantic) kept the rights to re-issue those Stax cuts they acquired during their distribution period, in perpetuity.  Atlantic effectively "stole" the rights to those Stax recordings from the original producers and financiers of the recordings.  Stax should have hired a better lawyer.
