I saw the Drifters in concert a couple of months ago at Bridlington Spa.

The music brought back so many happy memories. I didn't realise that they had so many hits or that I knew so many of their songs..!!! I even loved the 'new' songs, some of which can be found on the album.

If like me you had their songs on vinyl and tapes and finally what to replace them, then this is the album to buy..

The "very best of" is the key thing here with this release. It is not the definitive compilation of the hits of Drifters at all, but it is by far the "The very best" compilation of the most important and memorable hits all collected together. Previous compilations suffered because the Drifters had recorded on various record labels, and the line up changed a few times so for this release to bring together the best of those hits on one disc is excellent.
There are in fact eighteen hits that span the 60s and 70s on this collection. The disc includes two bonus tracks.

This is a fabulous compilation with some great hits. These are the original recordings including all the different line ups of the group.
The sound is excellent and generally this is the one to get if you are a fan of the Drifters.
The hits include their debut hits "Dance with me" and "Save the last dance for me" from 1960, "I count the tears" from 1961, "When my little girl is smiling" from 1962, "Under the Boardwalk" from 1964, "Come on over to my place" from 1965, and 1972, "Saturday night at the movies" from 1972, "Like Sister and Brother" from 1973, "Kissing in the back row of the movies" and "Down on the beach tonight" from 1974, "love games", "There goes my first love" and "Can I take you home little girl" from 1975, "Hello Happiness", Every nights a Saturday night with you" and "Your more than a number in my little red book" from 1976.

There are some hits not included which seems ok really, they were "I'll take you home" from 1963, (reached 37 in the UK charts) "At the club" from 1965 and 1972, (reached number 3 as a double A side record with Saturday night at the movies) "baby, what I mean" from 1967, (reached 49 in the UK charts) So not much missing there for a compilation.

Who absolutely loved it.
As a snapshot of the main body of work from The Drifters this is excellent.
It's true that not every classic song from the group is included and there are CDs out there they do have them all but they are more expensive.
My Wife just wanted a CD of some of the classics and this CD fits the bill nicely at a very reasonable price.
Recommended.

I bought this for my step mum having been to several brilliant Drifters concerts. I thought the cd was the current line up singing some old & some new songs. Bit disappointed it is just a re-hash of the original Drifters. Good tunes of course, but the current line up are just brilliant.

FANTASTIC as I expected all the sounds you expect to hear and more so if you want a trip back in time or would like to listen to voices that are so harmonious this is the CD to buy.

I have been a Drifters fan for many years and this is one of the best Drifter albums ever. Includes all of their most popular songs and 2 new recordings. If you are a fan you will enjoy this album, highly recomeded. Most of their classic songs are included on one album for the 1st time such as Like Sister and Brother, More Than a Number and Down on the Beach Tonight.
I have many Drifters albums in my collection including the so called "Definitive " but this disc is the VERY BEST.
