This Magic Moment 45 by Jay & The Americans

The Drifters reached number 16 on the BILLBOARD MAGAZINE Pop Singles Chart with “This Magic Moment.” Eight years later Jay & The Americans covered the song and had the last top ten single of their career.

It is always interesting to compare the two versions. The Drifters had a smooth soul sound and Jay Black had a powerful pop voice. Both versions were excellent in their own way.

“This Magic Moment” by Jay & The Americans first reached the Pop Chart, December 28, 1968, and early in 1969 peaked at number six and sold over one-million copies. Any compilation album by the group is still worth a listen.
