H, 1951: Sort of a mixed bag. There seem to be a million different compilations of hits from The Drifters and, of course, they’re all a bit different. The particular one picked by Rolling Stone is now only available as an import, and isn’t available for streaming on Apple Music. But others that are close in terms of song selection are available. However the identification of “The Drifters” as an artist is a bit misleading in any case, because the composition of the group working under that moniker changed so much over the years, and the songs were written by so many different composers. Some of the songs on here are stone classics – things like “Up On the Roof,” “On Broadway” and “Under the Boardwalk” – but others are pretty forgettable. So while I respect the group and its legacy, it’s hard to produce a full-throated endorsement of a particular compilation as being a classic album.
