1960

NOBODY BUT ME * THE DRIFTERS * ATLANTIC 2071 * USA

Most fans of Soul music will know this record for the A side: Save The Last Dance For Me a great record, one of those enduring hits that has been covered and sung almost to death and become an evergreen on both sides of the Atlantic. Singing lead on both sides is, of course, the man with that beautiful baritone voice Ben E. King; and both songs were recorded in New York, May 1960 along with I Count The Tears and Sometimes I Wonder the production credits going to Leiber and Stoller, but Bill Millar in his seminal book on The Drifters believes that Phil Spector had to be in there somewhere too. This copy of Nobody But Me once belonged to Betty Terrille, I wonder what she was like, where was she from, was she a big fan of Soul music, did she buy lots of records, go out dancing to Drifters records, or possibly even see them live.
