The rockabilly-cum-countrypolitan pianist and singer Charlie Rich enjoyed his greatest successes in the early- to mid-'70s, with a string of singles produced by Nashville mastermind Billy Sherrill, who was also responsible for George Jones's dominance of the country charts during that same period. By 1980 however, the hits had mostly dried up and Rich began a restless search for a sympathetic label and renewed career mojo. It wasn't to be, but along the way he made some very fine albums, 1980's Elektra release ONCE A DRIFTER notably among them. DRIFTER is very much in the easy listening country pop mode of Kenny Rogers and Glenn Campbell except that the string arrangements are musical and flowing, the singing gentle and wistful, even frail sounding in spots. Even in a somewhat diminished capacity, Charlie Rich is one of the greatest white soul singers the music ever produced, subtle and nuanced where Elvis could be bathetic. Interesting highlights include a cover of Randy Newman's "Marie" and a decidely unmacho take on "Goodtime Charlie's Got The Blues."
