So High (Rock Me Baby And Roll Me Away). Thank You For Tonight. From "Dobie Gray" - Infinity 9016 (1979).

From 1973's DRIFT AWAY through 1979's DOBIE GRAY, here's an opportunity to finally own all his prime - era recordings! Also included is a 19:39 spoken word interview, six (6) singles recordings from artist's earlier work in the 1960's with the White Whale label, and a sumptuous 19-page booklet with great bio and photos included! . I bought the Drift Away LP when I was a kid because of the hit title track and soon discovered that the entire album was excellent. All there seemed to be were compilations of his songs on "best of" collections. I recently found and purchased this set (sold through Hip-o-select).

It was a wonderful blend of soul, pop, and '70s singer/songwriter, best heard on the title track, which may have been the peak of the record, but is far from the only good cut here. After that hit, Gray started to get even more idiosyncratic on his subsequent albums for MCA (1973's Loving Arms and 1974's Hey Dixie) and Capricorn (1975's New Ray of Sunshine and 1976's Let Go). Using Drift Away as a base, Gray delved into country, developing a tremendous country-soul hybrid that had a loose, funky.

Dobie Gray never had the consistent recording career that, judging from his output, he surely deserved. Poor promotion, contract difficulties, bankrupt record label. omething always seemed to creep up and crush his career in its tracks. But with indefatigable energy, he kept on pushing, with the net result being only three Top 40 songs spanning fifteen years. Drift Away was the kind of song that had to make it, no matter how many curveballs it needed to dodge, simply because it was such a great record.
