Spanish Harlem/ First Taste of Love by Ben E. King

 mp3 availablePlay mp3: Side A | Side B
Label: Atco 6185 Year: 1961
Factory sleeve included
Condition: M $40.00
Spanish Harlem/ First Taste of LoveFrom a warehouse find, this is a new, unplayed stock copy with a drillhole, in its original Atco records factory sleeve. I'm assuming that everyone out there knows the unbelievably classic "Spanish Harlem," either in its first version by Ben E. King or by the amazing version Aretha Franklin recorded a decade later. But I suspect that not many have had the pleasure of this single's B side, so I'm sticking a snippet of it in the jukebox for you. "First Taste of Love" is more uptempo than "Spanish Harlem," features surprising, doo-wop-style backup vocals, and was cowritten by none other than Phil Spector. (That B side, by the way, is a non-album tune.) This perhspas the nicest copy of this classic single I've had to offer since opening the store in 2001! Note: Aside from the drillhole (see scan), this beautiful copy is pristine Mint, including gorgeous Mint sound. (This scan is a representative image from our archives.)
