Get Felts

Visit The Official Narvel Felts HomepageAn album to look for is the Bear Family release of "Drift Away" by Narvel Felts. In some way it is a rather unusual release from Bear Family as, instead of the label's usual in-depth coverage of an artist's recordings, this album picks out Narvel's career highlights. Subtitled "The Best Of Narvel Felts 1973-79", the tracks are drawn from Cimmaron, ABC/Dot and MCA archives, kicking off with "Drift Away", the song that started Narvel's country chart career in June of 1973. Among the 29 other tracks, the unique Felts' vocal styling turns in wonderful performances throughout, with somgs such as "Reconsider Me", his biggest hit and "Fraulein" which was not a hit but should have been. There is also a great duet, "Until The End Of Time", with Sharon Vaughan (who enjoyed fleeting success in the mid 1970's). Bear Family have a great track record for releasing quality albums and this one is no exception and also a great value, lasting more than 77 minutes. This album should really have been released by one of the major labels to give it that extra push into the world arena because it richly deserves it.
