Gotta Love Ben E.

His soaring tenor voice was first heard by all in 1959 as the lead singer for the Drifters, "There Goes My Baby" was a smash hit followed by a string of Drifter hits through the early Sixtie's. Then in 1961 Mr King went on his own with "Spanish Harlem", "Stand By Me", the forgotten "Young Boy Blues". The soulful sounds of Ben E. King need to be rediscovered by a new generation. If you are a real singer listen to this man's voice, the emotion in the highs, the soulfulness in the quiet, listen for the quick hum he throughs in most songs. This album will introduce you to a true artist that has us with many timeless classics. You Will love Ben E. King. Now, the Drifters are another amazing group.

King's approach influenced countless smooth soul singers in his wake, and his records...
