Dobie Gray: Drift Away

Last week I chose Dobie Gray's The In Crowd. This, from 1973, was his other great hit.

There were only eight years between the two records, but so much has changed - not least the way Gray styles himself.

No doubt it is partly because I have grown older, but it does seem to me that youth culture moved at an unprecedented (and unrepeated) pace in the 1960s.

Thanks for this, Jonathan - this was one of my favourite songs!
Made me look it up - found that the Rolling Stones covered it too (unreleased), like Tina Turner and dozens of others who obviously felt similar about this song! the Stones version
wiki has info on it too!
