Ecstasy

Pomus-Spector, 1963 (mono), 1992 (stereo).  Recorded: 11-10-63

Johnny Kidd (vocals) - Mick Green (lead) - Johnny Spence (bass) - Frank Farley (drums)

A fantastic version of Ben E. King's "Ecstasy" with all cylinders pumping.  Mick Green's solo is faultless.

 
The magic of your kiss is holding you like this, is ecstasy
The love that you have given makes this life worth living, ecstasy
Whoah, never let me go
Let that lovelight show, come on now
Take me by the hand and lead me to the land of ecstasy

The first time that I saw you you showed me the door to ecstasy
Now I'm always prayin' that we'll always stay in ecstasy
Whoa
h, don't you go away
For a single day, come on now
Take me by the hand and lead me to the land of ecstasy

(instrumental break)

I've travelled up an down much, never have I found such ecstasy
Know that now I know you everywhere I go is estasy
Whoah, kiss me dear and then, kiss me once again, come on now
Take me by the hand and lead me to the land of ecstasy
Aaahhh-hahhh, Ecstasy
Yeah, I know I'm in ecstasy
(scat to fade)
