Description by OLDIES.com:

Inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1988, The Drifters had one of the most illustrious careers in the world of music. They hit the R&B and Pop charts regularly from the mid-'50s to the '60s and were also popular live performers. This disc includes two of their Atlantic albums which contain many of their greatest early '60s hits, such as "Save the Last Dance For Me" (a #1 Pop hit), "Please Stay", and "Sweets for the Sweet".

Product Description:

2 LPs on 1 CD: SAVE THE LAST DANCE FOR ME (1961)/THE GOOD LIFE WITH THE DRIFTERS (1965).
Includes original release liner notes by Bob Altchuler.
This single-disc reissue CD contains two classic albums by the Drifters, 1962's DAVE THE LAST DANCE FOR ME and 1965's THE GOOD LIFE WITH THE DRIFTERS. That second album title is indicative, because the polished, warm sound of the Drifters' smooth harmonies were 1960s at its most ultra-civilized, more in keeping with the supper club than the roadhouse. SAVE THE LAST DANCE FOR ME, of course, contains the classic single of the same name, one of the Drifters' most beloved hits. But other highlights on this excellent 24-track package include Top 40 hits like "Saturday Night at the Movies," "Sweets For My Sweet," "Some Kind of Wonderful," "Please Stay," and "I Count the Tears." Album tracks of note include "Mexican Divorce," one of Burt Bacharach's earliest songs, and fine versions of standards like Anthony Newley's "What Kind of Fool Am I?" and "Who Can I Turn To (When Nobody Needs Me?)." THE GOOD LIFE WITH THE DRIFTERS finds the band moving decisively into middle-of-the-road cabaret pop as its Top 40 reign was coming to an end, but it's as fine a disc as its hitmaking twin.
