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.
