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

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!

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!!!

I just read a review of someone saying beware these are re-recordings rather than re-mastered recordings; guess you had to live it back then... I gotta ask, why would anyone want a re-mastering when you could have a re-recording of the original!? Dobie Gray was not meant to have one dimensional rap/hip hop engineering, rather, a "Sound City" or analog voice. I have some re-mastered Beatles, and a few other things, and all I can say is the originals are by far better than the re-masters. I also don't like it when the order of the songs has been changed. Gimme originals and "authentics" (my word), any day. It may not be apparent to some music enthusiast, but the amount of compression and "noise" cancelers takes away from the over all depth and measure of the original. If you, generally speaking, ever get the opportunity to listen to original recordings, and re-mastered recordings back to back, decide for yourselves. I'd like to like re-mastered versions of stuff, so far, nfw! Give me George Martin and other noted producers and recording engineers any day over the re-mastering geniuses of the digitized world any day. "God gave rock and roll to us..." Long live rock! I love you all, Twanger .

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.

I was hoping for the radio-version of Drift Away. This is sooo close, but is missing that little 'something' that the other recording has, which is embedded in my musical memory. Nevertheless, it's a very nice album, and even Drift Away is very, very well done. I'll keep searching for that just-right recording!
