Bill Medley and Bobby Hatfield began The Righteous Brothers brand in the early 60's out of
the Los Angeles recording their first albums and singles on Moonglow Records, and hit big
with "Little Latin Lupe Lu."
Upon signing to Phil Spector's Phillies Records, The Righteous Brothers would go on to
record a plethora of incredible hit singles including the most played song on radio in the
20th Century with their # 1 "You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin' " plus huge follow ups
"Unchained Melody" "Ebb Tide" "The White Cliffs Of Dover" and "Just Once In My Life."
Moving over to Verve Records in 1966, the duo became more album centric and delivered a
number highly successful albums and hit singles including their second number one classic
"Soul and Inspiration."
The Verve Records era would produce more blue eyed soul magic like "On This Side Of
Goodbye" and "Go Ahead And Cry", while The Righteous Brothers sound would continue to
be a household name and over the next few years would release some of the most
memorable rock and pop songs ever recorded.
In 1990, the blockbuster movie "Ghost" featured their classic hit record "Unchained Melody."
Radio listeners all over called their favorite stations asking for the song to be played, which
resulted in Polygram/Verve to rush release an amazing hit collection "The Very Best Of The
Righteous Brothers - Unchained Melody" to satisfy millions of record buyers.
The 12 track collection gathered up all of the top charting hits noted above, as well as some
more great tracks like "See That Girl" and "Hung On You", which in some cases would be
heard by an all new audience, making these songs and the rest another great chapter in the
continuing legacy of The Righteous Brothers.
In honor of the legendary artists and their music, Friday Music is very pleased to announce
the first time 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl release of the Polygram/Verve Records classic
“The Very Best Of Righteous Brothers - Unchained Melody.”
