Dobie_Gray_-_DAWhile admiring yet another song from the 1970s, DobieGray1973I 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.

  Drift Away | Dobie Gray – 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.
