Product Description

At 12 tracks, Very Best of the Righteous Brothers: Unchained Melody is considerably lighter than the ambitious double-disc Rhino Anthology, and it doesn't cover nearly as much ground; in other words, no "Rock & Roll Heaven" or any other '70s material is here. However, for those listeners who want a straight-up dose of the biggest Righteous Brothers' hits, this offers the peaks of their peak, highlighted, naturally, by "You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin'," "Unchained Melody," "(You're My) Soul and Inspiration," and "Little Latin Lupe Lu."

everyone remembers and loves ''unchained melody'' due to the fim ''ghost'' but this song was a hit many years previous to that. Jimmy Young recorded this, and was a hit for him too, and i do believe, someone one even before Jimmy had a hit, if the hit parade was around in those years! Unchained melody is only one of the songs on here. An easy listening to CD and good for the memories.

Format: Audio CD
They weren't related at all, but Bill Medley and Bobby Hatfield made a great combination with their contrasting voices. With Phil Spector as producer, they recorded some classic songs.

You've lost that loving feeling went to number one in both Britain and America. The achievement was particularly creditable in Britain, where Cilla Black's cover version was first to chart and had climbed to number two before the original version overtook it. It is clearly very popular as it made the UK top ten when re-issued in 1969 - and that wasn't the end of its UK chart success.

Unchained melody was a cover of a fifties movie song. It was somewhat less successful at the time. Even without a rival cover, it stalled at 14 in the UK charts - however, its use in Ghost (a 1990 movie) prompted its re-issue as a UK single and this time it made number one. As a follow-up, You've lost that loving feeling was re-issued for the second time, this time making the top three.

Of the other Phil Spector tracks, Just once in my life missed the UK charts but made the American top ten, while Ebb tide was a sizeable American hit but only a minor UK hit.

The professional relationship between the Righteous Brothers and Phil Spector was difficult so they didn't stay with Phil Spector very long. As things turned out, they provided Phil with his last major success in America, although he had one more big hit in Britain when River deep mountain high in 1966, performed by Ike and Tina Turner, made the UK top three. After the split, the Righteous Brothers had an American number one hit (it also made the UK top twenty) with You're my soul and inspiration, but soon ran out of hits.

This compilation is rather short but it contains all the essentials.

These recordings cannot be covered. They are classics that simply can't be sung by anyone else. The songs will be played and played by future generations.

heard a track on Radio 2 last year as a result I researched their music as they did bring out a lot of tracks from the late 60's onwards I chose this as it seemed to have the best of their collection.
