Guide Review - Righteous Brothers: Gold
Now, however, we have two CDs that cover everything from their debut as a frat-rock act ('63's "Little Latin Lupe Lu") right through to their pure pop comeback with the 1974 tribute novelty "Rock And Roll Heaven." Of course, all the big Spectorian and pseudo-Spectorian hits you love are here -- "You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin'," "Unchained Melody," "Ebb Tide," "Just Once In My Life," "(You're My) Soul And Inspiration" -- but they're sandwiched between a generous helping of early R&B cuts, half a dozen late-Sixties solo efforts each from Bobby and Bill, and their very last chart entries like "Give It To The People" and "Dream On." With the absence of any domestic box sets from the group still in print, and given the remastered glory of these songs (some of the most sonically complex recordings in all of pop music), the modestly-titled "Gold" becomes the righteous Righteous Brothers collection for any but the most casual fan.
