THE ULTIMATE COLLECTION... contains 20 songs including 3 with The Drifters.
Recorded in New York between December 17, 1959 and March 17, 1975 & Los Angeles in February, 1963.
Personnel: Ben E. King (vocals, guitar).
Recording information: Los Angeles, CA (12/17/1959-03/17/1975); New York, NY (12/17/1959-03/17/1975).
Unknown Contributor Role: The Drifters .
Available on cassette only, this brief set features some of Ben E. King's leads with the Drifters and a handful of solo efforts. Three solo monsters are included: the stalking "Stand by Me," fan favorite "Don't Play That Song," and the everlasting "Spanish Harlem." His stint with the Drifters is best represented by the popular "Save the Last Dance for Me" and the lilting "This Magic Moment." King's '70s smash "Supernatural Thing Pt. 1" is disappointing in this context because "Pt. 2" is omitted. Perfect for casual fans of Ben E. King and the Drifters who only need an appetizer. More serious fans should seek the many single- and double-disc sets for a better picture. ~ Andrew Hamilton
