'Spanish Harlem' is the classic debut album by Soul icon Ben E. King, originally released in 1961. The album peaked at #57 in the Billboard 200 Charts. Latin flavours and sunny drums run all the way through his 12-song platter, which, at times, is more of a Pop record than a Soul record. King's version of 'Besame Mucho' is a very successful reinterpretation in a Latin soul vein, and 'Perfidia' never sounded better than it does in his hands.
