EDITORS’ NOTES

The hallowed combination of Bobby Hatfield’s crystalline countertenor, Bill Medley’s purring bass-baritone, and the duo’s ear for celestial, gospel harmonizing established The Righteous Brothers as champions of midcentury soul—and equipped them with an arsenal of crescendoing R&B hits. This compilation retraces their steps through the ’60s, from the doo-wop-inspired “Little Latin Lupe Lu” through densely woven mid-’60s Phil Spector collaborations like “You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin’” and “Unchained Melody” to later raw and unshackled songs such as “On This Side of Goodbye.”
