Ben E King - What Can A Man Do - Atco

60s SoulPosted by Martin Wed, February 09, 2011 20:54:05
Another one of King´s lesser known tracks, I´ve featured his great "I Can´t Break The News To Myself" some time ago. This was released the year before, in 1964 to be exact and although it sold fairly well judging by how it is to find nowadays it still has to be considered a poor seller by King´s standards. Still active to this day, Ben E King has a recording history that spans over five decades and includes hits with both The Drifters as well as a solo artist. He also managed to make a remarkable return to the spotlight in the 70s after having been out of the limelight for some time. Definately one of the most rememberable voices of soul music, here it is in all its glory, enjoy!

I believe this to be the first soul record I heard in life - at the tender age of 12. I taped it by chance from radio and almost decided to erase it at first, because it was ... so different ... from anything I had heard before. But before long I taped little else...
