Dobie Gray: Drift Away

Bob Woffinden, New Musical Express, September 1973

I COULDN'T find the name 'Dobie Gray' in any of the rock encyclopaedias. Presumably after 'The In Crowd' he became one of those half-forgotten names that are recalled with nostalgia, and an occasional touch of merriment. A One-Hit Wonder, to be sure. Except that 'The In Crowd' didn't make the charts.
