i ordered this cd recognising some old favourites on the cover and was not disappointed. This is brilliant and i have played it over and over whilst working in my stables.I transfered it onto my ipod also to be able to keep lisrtening (Great for drowning out the irritating constant announcements on Ryanair flights!!!!)
The quality is top level recording and the content superb. My many visitors have said they are/have ordered their own copy, having heard me playing it. So i can thoroughly recomend it to anyone who enjoys this style of music.

Why couldn't they have kept the faith in the charm of Dobie Gray's voice and the magic of the original arrangements of soul classics like "Slip Away" and "Ain't That Good News" and the like?

I can see that they are trying to combine new Big Song material with their chosen soul classics, and the production balance has tipped too far towards accommodating the new (highly-polished and programmed-to-the-nth-degree) sounds, so they've done the same to the music of the classics, and that jars.

I wish they had vetoed the tinkly synthesiser and drum-machine-quality sound and clean/sterile programmed-to-order backing singing on the classics.

Dobie Gray's voice is the massive silver lining in this over-produced thundercloud of a CD. His new material would be received more favourably, I suspect, if it was set out on its own; being included with these misguidedly updated soul classics is not a happy combination.

I must say that they've respected "Drift Away", thankfully.

I heard this title being played on the Radio, and stopped the car to write down the details - his vioce made come out in goose pimples...never heard of him until then. I will update with my opinion on the rest of the tracks....

Re-recordings... no remasters 30 July 2011
By J. HARMON - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I have yet to listen to my new copy... but I can tell prospective buyers, beware... as these are re-recordings of the songs rather than remastered versions of the original recordings. The liner notes makes this reality all too clear. Now I will have to spend more money for the ULTIMATE COLLECTION as it seems to be the only legitimate compilation with the original recordings. Should anyone wish to buy a never used but opened copy of this compilation, you are welcome to contact me.

Best wishes to all Dobie Gray fans.

John

Dobie Gray--Drift Away 10 July 2009
By David H - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The title song alone, Drift Away, is worth the cost of the CD. Great song. Put it on a jukebox in a bar and immediately everyone started singing. GOOD STUFF!

Finalmente!! No Rap Just Great Songs Sung By A True Artist!!! 2 July 2005
By John Baranyai - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This album is a rarity these days because it features a black guy who ACTUALLY SINGS instead of just talking fast like he was wired on Benzedrine in the mistaken belief that Rap consitutes music. My favourite track on this album is the soulful and mournful "We Had It All". This album wa released at a time when a music artist was judged solely on the quality of his songs instead of how many half naked women with big breasts he could fit into a 3 minute so called "Music Video".Dobie my man, you ROCK!!!

Get My Drift 19 Jan 2011

I normally like country or oldies, being so I had heard some RB from old times. I could not get songs out of my head... For some time would try to find who sang them songs, some time later was in a store and it played and I caught myself knowing and singing words. When got to a computer I put some words into search, others were asking also. It came back Drift Away by Dobie Gray. Come to find out several songs I knew of. For months try buy in stores but was told to old of song artist only online. kept looking anyway. My Birthday was Sept that is what I wanted. I did get it finally for christmas, play it constant. Soothes me, enjoy most of songs - few not familiar with yet. It was ordered, pleasant person and got it right away at my door. Thank you.
Amazon.com is amazing.
