King's plaintive baritone had all the passion of gospel, but the settings in which it was displayed were tailored more for his honey smooth phrasing and crisp enunciation, proving for perhaps the first time that R&B could be sophisticated and accessible to straight pop audiences. /artists/az/king_ben_e_/bio.jhtml   (190 words)

 Ben E King
Ben E King came to prominence as lead singer with the Drifters when ‘There Goes My Baby’ took both US RandB and pop charts by storm and very nearly became an international hit.

Ben’s earliest solo singles didn’t take but after he linked up with Leiber and Stoller ‘Spanish Harlem’ hit the US top ten and though popular in the UK the flipside ‘First Taste Of Love’ was preferred and became his first British hit. /artists/king.htm   (190 words)

He was also a fine singer, able to carry the lead vocal on Ben E King's Stand By Me and to supply the distinctive top harmony in the band's vocal mix.
But by the spring of 1966, Curtis began to find that the glamour of being a member of Liverpool's "second most popular group" was being outweighed by the drudgery of their touring and recording schedule.
The band were renowned for intricate vocal arrangements and distinctive guitar parts, but Curtis's innovative drum parts and willingness to experiment with bongos, cowbells and castanets added extra intrigue to their sound. /arts/news/obituary/0,12723,1428937,00.html?gusrc=rss   (218 words)
