  1. This takes me way back. I remember they used to call the Righteous Brothers, The Blue-eyed Soul Brothers. This is one of my favorites. Bobby Hatfield will surely be misses. Blessings and Peace.

    1. Hello cf! Hope that you are doing well and staying safe. The Righteous Brothers as I have always known them, were two guys that followed their hearts and dreams. Actually they found their niche in r&b and stayed with it. I can admire any person (s) that live within their own happiness and guidelines. )))SMILES(((
