Two original early '60s LPs are combined here and the result is a virtual Drifters Greatest Hits. 'Up on the Roof,' Carole King's gorgeously romantic ode to working class escape and freedom, is here in both the hit single and slightly longer LP versions (the single is in mono, the LP version is stereo with a longer intro). Elsewhere, you'll find a real embarrassment of riches, with song after brilliant hit song from the fertile imaginations of the great Brill Building writers of the pre-Beatle era, including Barry Mann and Cynthia Weill ('On Broadway'), Doc Pomus and Mort Shuman ('Sweets for My Sweet,' 'This Magic Moment,' 'Save the Last Dance for Me'), plus lesser known but equally evocative songs from Burt Bacharach and Otis Blackwell. Timeless stuff.
