In the early and mid-1960s, there were few duos more soulful than the Righteous Brothers. With their desperately impassioned R&B style, the blue-eyed Southern Californians crossed barriers of time, place, and audience. "Brothers" Bill Medley and Bobby Hatfield joined forces with legendary "Wall of Sound" producer Phil Spector, resulting in one the greatest, most enduring hits ever, "You've Lost That Lovin' Feeling." The Brothers continued to combine their distinctive vocals with dense, emotionally dramatic musical backgrounds, resulting in a clutch of soul/pop 1960s classics many of which are contained here, including "(You're My) Soul and Inspiration" and, of course, "Unchained Melody."
