For nearly four decades, the Righteous Brothers have defined the essence of "blue-eyed soul." Together and as solo artists, Bill and Bobby have reached generations of fans with their unmistakable, heartfelt vocal style. From their 1865 chart-topping success with "You've Lost That Lovin' Feeling" to 1990's surprise rediscovery of "Unchained Melody," the Righteous Brothers have endured and thrived as legendary talents.
The raw emotion which Medley and Hatfield convey as singers explains the duo's evergreen appeal. They also have the knack of choosing timeless, immaculately crafted songs to record. Today, the Righteous Brothers are currently at renewed heights of popularity, reaching legions of new admirers over the airwaves and in concert. Bill believes the one thing that is constant in their songs is the pure emotion.
Bill and Bobby were invited to perform at President Clinton's Georgetown University reunion last year and they have been highly acknowledged by artists like Billy Joel and Bruce Springfield who both have thanked The Righteous Brothers for their timeless inspiration.
"Reunion," is their latest record release. The album brings the Brothers together again for an album of all newly recorded songs. Such classics as "You've Lost That Lovin' Feeling," (You're My) Soul And Inspiration," "Ebb Tide," and an updated rendition of "Rock And Roll Heaven," are included in this impressive collection.
"Reunion" appears in the wake of the Righteous Brothers' surprise comeback as Top 40 hit makers. "Unchained Melody" featured in the film "Ghost," became a platinum single in early '91 when the duo's newly recorded version sold over one million copies. The song also earned them a Grammy nomination in the category of "Best Pop Performance By A Duo or Group with Vocal."
