For Dobie Gray, music is the ultimate medicine: "Oh, give me the beat boys and free my soul / I wanna get lost in your rock and roll and drift away". Originally conceived by Mentor Williams in 1970 and first recorded by John Henry Kurtz on his 1972 album Reunion, "Drift Away" was a Number 5 Billboard Hot 100 hit for Dobie Gray who took the song to new heights in 1973 with his soulful version of the swamp-rock song. Thirty years later, Dobie Gray teamed up with "Follow Me" hitmaker Uncle Kracker for a new version of the song recorded for the latter's studio album, No Stranger to Shame, in 2003. The '00s update saw Dobie Gray step in to sing the bridge and sing backing vocals and the final verse with Uncle Kracker, and claimed a Top 10 position in the US, also peaking at Number 25 on the New Zealand Singles Chart. "Drift Away" has also been covered by a raft of other artists including Rod Stewart and Jon Bon Jovi.

    BGVs are a bit slurred. Instrumentation is good.

    Drift Away is a hard song to cover. My band backed up Dobie Gray in Sacramento. I picked him up every night, took him to the gig, struck up a good friendship. One to ten, I'd give that track a six; the harmony is supposed to be three part, but is one voice singing the lead note. Not one of your best tracks. b3wizzard

    The vocals and the guitars are quite good, the bass sounds like a keyboard bass, the drums and percussion sound like samples played on a keyboard.
