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.

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.

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!

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.

This expands the 1993 "Verry Best of the Drifters" from it's original 16 cuts to 30 cuts, but it could all fit on one CD! anyone who held out on that CD would be happy with this album, because not only do you get the Ben E. King cuts, you even get the early Clide McFadder cuts! this CD starts strongly with "Money Honey", and moves you through classics like "Adorible", "Ruby Baby", "Fools Fall In Love", and "Such a Night", which were covered by Elvis Presley in the 60's. "Money Honey" was also covered by Elvis. I also njoyed "Honey Love" and "Steam Boat". after those Clide McFadder cuts, Ben E. King steals the show with songs like "There Goes My Baby", "Dance With Me", "This Magic ent", which was also covered by Jay and the Americans, "Lonely Winds", "I Count the Tears" and when ben left, there are classics like "Saturday Night at the Movies", "Under the Boardwalk" and "At the Club" is included! Now I'm wishing that "He's Just a Playboy" was here! it's a great catchy song! which every album you go with, anything from 1959- 1965, you won't be disappointed! I have all the complete Drifters Atlantic recordings, and I haven't skipped a single song!
