While admiring yet another song from the 1970s, I learned that the song writer of "Drift Away" was Mentor Williams, brother of popular song writer, singer, composer and actor Paul Williams. While reading a bit more, I didn’t realize just how many other artist performed the song … not the least Dobie Gray who made it a big hit in 1973.

One of the more interesting performances was by the afore mentioned Paul Williams and the late John Denver back in 1974 (below). What a natural entertainer the talented John Denver was … still my all time favorite live concert. I truly miss his music.
