“Drift Away” is a song written by Mentor Williams and originally recorded by John Henry Kurtz on his 1972 album Reunion. In 1973 the song became Dobie Gray’s biggest hit, peaking at number five on the Billboard Hot 100 and certified gold by the RIAA.[1] It was the final pop hit for Decca Records in the United States.

A new version by Uncle Kracker, with Gray, became a major hit in 2003.

    This song includes one of my favorite lines: “Oh, give me the beat, boys, and free my soul, I wanna get lost in your rock and roll and drift away.” I also think Dobie Gray’s cover is the best edition this song out there. Cheers
