NOT ORIGINAL MATERIAL,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Greatest Hits (MP3 Music)
"The Drifers - The Greatest Hits" (ASIN:B0013SGTQ2) is manifestly NOT original material. I can hear synthesizers in the mix.
I read some of the other reviews which claimed this collection was original material and then purchased without verification. Mistake. If you read these reviews, you are going to get a mixed message about whether or not this collection is original material. Please listen to samples before you purchase and make up your own mind.

Under each review is a line stating: This review is from.....and the title. There are no mixed messages, you simply did not pay attention to what you were reading. This is partly Amazon's fault, as they feature reviews of differing collections on the same page, but the information is there if you'd care to see it.
Another clue is this: Go to Allmusic.com and check the artists' reviews there. They will tell you, among other things, what label the artist was on. The Original Drifters recordings are owned by Atlantic Records, nowadays handled by Collectibles Records and Atlantic/Rhino Records. You then went to a page on Amazon and didn't check the owner of the recording - GOLDENLANE RECORDS.
Your avoidance of doing your research netted you what you deserved, namely, the wrong recordings.
