The Drifters – The Definitive Drifters

Between 1959 and 1964, The Drifters had 16 American hits, many written by top teams from New York’s Brill Building, notably including “Save The Last Dance For Me”, “Up On The Roof”, “On Broadway” and “Under The Boardwalk”. These are all-time classics by any measure and any collection featuring them is worth having. On this two-disc set, a great deal else from the group’s extensive catalogue appears, not always to much effect. In the absence of something more selective, this is worth considering.
