Apart from being performed live and recorded at the ABC Kingston, Surrey, England on 7 March 1962 (like ROVIN' GAMBLER), this rousing gospel song was not recorded at any other studio.
Cliff had recorded Save My Soul at the same Luxembourg recording sessions as Rovin' Gambler, Dim Dim The Lights, Razzle Dazzle, Reelin' and Rockin', Do You Wanna Dance, The Young Ones, Rosalie and I Got A Woman during early 1962. In fact many of these tracks featured in Cliff and The Shadows' UK spring tour throughout February and March 1962.
The quality of this track is quite good, but intermittent bad interference spoils some parts of the song.
MC: the RL version lacks the sheer kick of the Kingston performance, as Cliff and the group were spurred on by an appreciative audience to deliver the goods in style.
