Benny and Us resulted from a chance meeting in Miami between Ben E. King and the Average White Band, who were vacationing there just when King was starting work on a new album. The finished LP yielded two hit singles and became King's best-selling LP, rising to number 33. The sound is soulful and funky, very bright and passionate - the upbeat, relentlessly catchy Get It Up for Love and the soaring, horn and string driven A Star in the Ghetto made respectable showings on the R&B charts, and a good portion of the rest The Message, What Is Soul.
