Ben E. King - Anthology

En cet hiver 1961, Benjamin Nelson maudit certainement la tempête de neige qui sévit sur New-York, empêchant les autres membres des Drifters d'arriver au studio, ce qui va l'obliger à enregistrer seul un premier single sous le nom de Ben E. King: 'First Taste Of Love', et surtout sa face B, 'Spanish Harlem', qui va exploser au Billboard... La suite de l'histoire, on la connaît... Sale temps, effectivement, pour les Drifters, qui n'avaient jamais réussi à garder un chanteur et qui, pour ce coup-là, ne s'en remettront pas, mais bénie soit la météo pourrie pour Benjamin Nelson!

We were doing things with a hundred
per cent feeling. It wasn't programmed.
It wasn't asked for. It wasn't structured.
It was just there. It was very raw.

Ben E. King

Essential addition for any serious collection.

Brilliance on display via Ben's rich, gorgeous voice, Lieber & Stoller's historic, ground-breaking production, and state of the art, Brill Building songwriting.

This is as joyous as it gets.

The booklet is a true bonus as well. Special thanks for this one.

Dès les premières notes de la contrebasse un frisson parcourt l'échine ! Stand By Me...
J'ai une grande affection pour Willy Deville: il reprenait la chanson avec passion mais Ben E. King...
La première fois que j'ai entendu "Don't play that song", c'était dans la version de Johnny mais il a fallu attendre quelques années avant d'être projeté "ailleurs" par cette voix!
Drifters, Coasters, A. Alexander, Pickett, Cooke, Redding, Meyer !!! On est dans le domaine de l'intouchable, de l'émotion immédiate, de l'absolu et de l'éternité !!!
Et je n'échangerai pas un baril de cette musique (j'ose plus dire r'n'b)contre cent de ce garage rock d'aujourd'hui qui se généralise (s'uniformise) un peu trop à mon goût!
Un seul mot : MERCI Dr Faustroll!
