The Good Life With the Drifters (8013) (1965)

SAM_0372As I say, it wasn’t all perfect last weekend. This Drifters Lp, I don’t quite know what to make of it. It’s like a soul-musical crossover. Sometimes it works for me (“Quando”), but as often as not, it plays it too straight for grittier tastes and would surely have sounded terribly old hat in ’65. “Saturday Night” was the big hit, and stands at odds with the rest of the album as R&B pop (though just as dated) with better integrated backing vocals. Great condition, nice camp cover, so no great loss at 50p.SAM_0373
