✨✧ DriftersEvery Nite's A Saturday Night (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Arista/7T's (UK), 1976. Used ... Out Of Stock
The Drifters' one and only album for Arista Records – and, like their previous Bell albums, a UK-only set that continued their revival years overseas! The production's a bit smoother than before – mostly in keeping with the shifting styles of soul at the time, with a few more uptempo numbers thrown into the mix, but never in a way that's too cheaply disco or commercial. Rogers Cook and Greenaway are still working with the group here – continuing a unified sound from the Bell years – and the vocals continue a nice evolution from the 60s sound of The Drifters – picking up a fair bit of inspiration from younger American vocal group soul of the 70s. Titles include "I'll Know When True Love Really Passes By", "Summer In The City", "You're More Than A Number In My Little Red Book", "Do You Have To Go Now", "Twice A Week", and "Like A Movie I've Seen Twice Before". CD features 9 bonus tracks – some previously unissued – including "A Good Song Never Dies", "I Can't Believe It's Over", "When Ya Comin Home", "Devil In Me", "You're Never More Than A Heartbeat Away", and "Don't Act Like You Don't Know".

✨✧ DriftersThere Goes My First Love (plus bonus tracks) ... CD
Bell/7T's (UK), 1975. Used ... Out Of Stock
The third in The Drifters' early 70s revival run in the UK for Bell Records – and possibly the strongest album of the bunch! The lineup of the group has changed a bit, but the sound here is still the same – a nice 70s update of the group's earlier sound – in a way that still keeps all the lilting moments of the early 60s Drifters' style on Atlantic, but which also brings in some fuller, smoother production too – handled by Roger Greenaway, who also wrote a number of tracks for the record too. The wealth of original material really keeps things fresh – and has the group stretching past a simple rehash of the early days – and titles include "The Juggler", "Harlem Child", "Hello Happiness", "I've Got You On My Mind", "Don't Cry On A Weekend", "Can I Take You Home Little Girl", "There Goes My First Love", and "You Chose A Fine Time". CD also features 2 bonus tracks – "It Looks Like I'm The Clown Again" and "Closely Guarded Secret". CD
