Little Ben and the Cheers: Beggar of Love (Rush, 1968, 7″)
Soul ballad out of Chicago.
One of my favorite “new arrivals” from 2013/14 (I think I may have bought this in MN but at this point, I don’t remember). I’m guessing this was originally on the Laredo label in ’68 and Rush was a 2nd issue (though I’m not positive there). Little Ben and the Cheers had a short-lived (3-4 years?) recording career, having begun on the Penny imprint (of Nickel and Penny fame) and “Beggar of Love” was likely their biggest single, especially since it appeared on three different labels (including under the name “Norfleet Cousins“).
