  1. I think I remember him pulling off those long notes when he was with the Kingsmen. What a voice!

  2. Daniel,
    I, too, remember when he was with the Kingsmen and pulled those longgggggg holds.
    This man has an amazing set of lungs to go with his vocal chords.
    When he comes off the end of “how great thou art” into “then sings my soul” he sounds amazingly like James Blackwood. That in itself is a great compliment to anyone!

  3. My favorite long hold he did with the Kingsmen was on “A Place Where the Hungry are Fed.” That’s a good song period, but his voice really put it over the top!

  4. I’m sure I’m in the minority on this but the extensive hold on the note just doesn’t do anything for me. In my mind I’m saying, “OK get it over with!”

  5. Maybe you’re right, but you have to admit that he has the bext lungs in the business!

  6. Arthur Rice is amazing. If I could chose anybody from any genre of music that I could sing like it would be Arthur Rice.

  7. I’m with Dean on this one. 🙂

  8. It is pretty impressive though.
