    Another decent old one.




    Too bad that this video quality is so bad.

    Someone confused "Dobie" with "Doobie."

    We hashed this very song out, and this very version, a couple or a few months ago.

    George, the more I listen the more I think you're probably right, it's attributed wrongly.

    But Daniel just likes digging up the muck :)

    Here's where we did it, in October:
    http://www.gamersonlinux.com/forum/...rd-sing-shake-a-hand.2460/page-143#post-25727

    Dobie made a big hit from it, but it wasn't actually his song, that is for certain.

    This from Wikipedia:
    ""Drift Away" has also been covered by many bands and vocalists around the world. Versions include those of Uncle Kracker, Allan Clarke, Roy Orbison, Ike & Tina Turner, Humble Pie, Mud, Rod Stewart, James Hollis, Waylon Jennings, Ray Charles, Michael Bolton, the Neville Brothers, Jon Bon Jovi[19], Copperhead, Christian Kane, the Rolling Stones, the Nylons, Ringo Starr, Bruce Springsteen, BoDeans, Judson Spence, Billy Joe Royal, Steve Young and John Kay.[20] Folk singer Tom Rush recorded the song on his album What I Know, released in 2009."

    No mention of the Doobie Brothers.

    George, you are vindicated :)

    How good is this?
    Damn, I miss the 70s.

    Really good quality sound on this video, too. [It was probably lip-synched]



    Here's another, older Rod doing the same song. I rather like this one, but it's not the amazing Faces [one of my favorite 70s groups]:

    Amazing! I totally forgot that "Drift Away" had generated fear and doubt (in me) before. Wow, I must be far more careful in my repetitions!
    Thank you ThunderRd, you are a great Member of this here joint!
