God Knows Mick.. I'd say a guitar.. but what do I know...

I do think you should seek out the 100 club footage of him singing it for sheer feeling, especially when he hits that note mid way..and the club goes crazy... you can see the confidence it gives him knowing they all know it, and they all Love it..!!

God dam I wish I was there..

For me "The Drifter" just encapsulates the full on, heart wrenching and emotion driven passion of soul music, I still love to hear this 45', the moment when Pollard just purrs as the lyrics effortlessly flow from those incredible vocal chords, it still has, and always will have, the ability to electrify every sinew and nerve ending in my poor wretched and self abused body.

Unbelievably I've never owned this masterpiece, I have had many chances but i seemed always to chase other things, I got the demo of Ray Pollards equally brilliant "It's A Sad Thing" (possibly just edging it for me), but alas this legendary vinyl wonder still has a place waiting for it ..

As a collector i always went for the US version (first copy et al, never was interested in UK versions), but i always fancied that fabulous French E.P. with both "Drifter" and "Sad Thing" on it.....mmmmmmmmmmmm
