Although the Righteous Brothers are best known for their majestic 1965 hits "You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin'" and "Unchained Melody," California vocalists Bill Medley and Bobby Hatfield recorded prolifically from '63 to '74. This impressive 48-track Universal collection ranges from the duo's early rock-&-roll singles (the raucous "Little Latin Lupe Lu") to their lush pop collaborations with producer Phil Spector (the two aforementioned songs and other wall-of-sound staples) to numerous solo tracks by both Medley and Hatfield. While not for casual Righteous Brothers fans, GOLD is ideal for devoted aficionados of the blue-eyed soul duo.
