Ben E. King was one of the soul and R&B singers who bridged the gap between the doowop and R&B vocal groups of the late 50's and the soul boom of the 60's, beginning his career as a member of The Five Crowns, which became the core of a new Drifters line-up in 1958, and providing lead vocals on hits which included “Save The Last Dance For Me”.

Embarking on a solo career with Atlantic Records, he worked with producers Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller to have a debut hit in 1960 with “Spanish Harlem”, followed by the landmark classic “Stand By Me”, which he co-wrote and which the Record Industry Association of America lists at No. 25 on its list of “Songs Of The Century”.

This 43-track 2CD contains all his A & B sides on the Atco label during this era, along with his duet single with Lavern Baker, plus all the tracks from his albums during these years “Spanish Harlem”, “Ben E. King Sings For Soulful Lovers” and “Don't Play That Song!” which were not otherwise released on singles.

It naturally features all his eleven pop and R&B hits from this time, including the R&B and UK No. 1 “Stand By Me” and the Top 10 classics “Spanish Harlem” and “Amor”.

It’s a comprehensive overview of this key era of his career and a fine showcase for one of the great soul voices of the era.
