Image of The Drifters


The history of rhythm and blues is filled with vocal groups whose names -- the Orioles, the Cadillacs, the Crows, the Flamingos, the Moonglows, the Coasters, the Penguins -- are held in reverence by fanatics and devotees. The Drifters are part of an even more exclusive fraternity, as a group that managed to carve out a place for themselves in the R&B firmament and also define that music, ...

Editorial Reviews

This 2-disc, 30-song collection shows off the Drifters' agile harmonies and impeccable song sensabilities that bridged '50s R&B and '60s soul and epitomized the vocal group essence of the Brill Building era with a sound that was both streetwise and as sweet as soul music gets.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Real Deal! November 30, 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This collection is all I dreamed it would be. For years I have tried and failed to obtain a collection of the Drifters songs that included both Clyde McPhatter and Ben E. King as the lead singers. After having purchased several albums and CDs that purported to be the "real and original Drifters", I gave up. However when I saw "The Definitive Soul Collection, I decided to give it one more try. I have purchased several other artists from this company and was pleased with the result. Their record remains unblemished. I am thrilled to have at last found the truly "definitive" Drifters compilation. This CD contains their early 50's songs as well as those they later recorded in the 60's. A bonus is the excellent sound quality. This is an excellent product and I wholeheartedly recommend it to my fellow Drifter fans.

4.0 out of 5 stars Love this one January 21, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I read some of the reviews for this double album and was sure that it was what I wanted. When I first played it, I decided I liked the second CD the best and replayed it two more times. The words from each of the songs came right back to me years after I had heard them. The voices of the Drifters are clear and wonderful. This is a good one to own.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Remastering January 19, 2013
Format:Audio CD
I have purchased at least two other Drifters compilations over the last decade and neither one of them came close to sounding as clean as this one. My other two Drifters compilations sound like they were made using inferior source tapes. Purchase this collection while it is still available on cd. Compressed MP3 files just don't cut it with their limited sound range and this is one vocal group that deserves to be heard in all their digital glory!
