Ben E King and The Drifters First Taste Of Love Cd
[GVC 1010]
 

BEN E. KING & THE DRIFTERS , 1958-60 - FIRST TASTE OF LOVE

Also featuring The Crowns and Lavern Baker

Although Ben E. King's name is wholly synonymous with that of The Drifters, the reality is that he only actually sang on a dozen Drifters tracks - indeed, he'd effectively left the group after their first hit together. Ben E. King would, of course, go on to enjoy a massive career - as, indeed, would The Drifters - and both are still active to this day. But the body of work he recorded during 1959/60 was truly exceptional, and included many of his own and The Drifters' respective career benchmark recordings. ‘First Taste Of Love'/‘Spanish Harlem' was released in December 1960 and initially it was the former which took off (as, indeed, it had been custom-written to do). However, one or two deejays soon began playing the flip, whereupon ‘Spanish Harlem' took over, eventually reaching No.10 Pop, No.15 R&B, giving Ben his first hit and winning him a gold record. In the UK, ‘First Taste' made the Top 30 .
