AllMusic Review by

Razor & Tie's Drift Away: His Very Best is the definitive Dobie Gray collection, containing all of his Top 40 pop hits and all of his charting R&B singles -- "The 'In' Crowd," "Drift Away," "Loving Arms," "Find 'Em, Fool 'Em & Forget 'Em," "You Can Do It" -- plus 12 other lesser-known singles and album tracks. A few of the songs may fall flat, but there are more hidden gems on the collection than you might expect; in particular, the country-soul of "There's a Honky Tonk Angel" and "Watch out for Lucy" sounds particularly good. Either way, Drift Away captures the full range of Gray's talent and provides an excellent summation of his career.
