Bobby HatfieldOther Brother – A Solo Anthology 1965 to 1970 ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $12.99 19.99
Overlooked genius from Bobby Hatfield – the lesser-remembered Righteous Brother – or at least one who never hit the fame of his duo partner Bill Medley! Yet Bobby's a hell of a singer, and really steps out wonderfully here – on a range of rare tracks that includes material cut for Verve, but unissued at the time – mixed with other 7" single tracks, a few Philles cuts, and lots more work for MGM. The core of the record – about fifty percent – is the excellent Messin In Muscle Shoals album – a killer session down at the legendary Fame Studios in Muscle Shoals, with a heavy soul vibe that really knocks the album out of the park! The set's one of the best in that rare early 70s blend of soul, funk, and rock – the kind of groove that few cats could handle as well as Bobby – with a vibe that maybe reminds us of Eddie Hinton at his best, but even more stripped-down and rootsy! The lineup features great work from Muscle Shoals stalwarts – like Harrison Calloway on baritone sax, Clayton Ivey on organ, and Travis Wammack on guitar. Lots of the other material follows in the same vein – even the tracks for Verve – and titles include "Hang Ups", "Soul Cafe", "So Much Love", "Brothers", "See That Girl", "Woman You Got No Soul", "Paradise", "Crying In The Chapel", "In My Mind", "What's The Matter Baby", "You Left The Water Running", "The Promised Land", "Shuckin & Jivin", "I Saw A Lark", and "Messin In Muscle Shoals". 24 tracks in all – 7 previously unissued!

Righteous BrothersSouled Out ... LP
Verve, 1967. Very Good+ ... $6.99
One of the greatest blue eyed soul albums of the 60s – and one of the few full albums ever recorded by the mostly-singles Righteous Brothers! The album builds wonderfully on the duo's earlier work for Phil Spector – and uses Motown maestro Mickey Stevenson to give the record a sophisticated uptown soul sound that's a perfect match for the well-crafted vocals of Bill Medley and Bobby Hatfield. The songs here are pretty fresh too – a batch of tunes that gets past their familiar hits, and features some great Motown influences from writers Leon Ware, Stevenson, and others. Titles include "Been So Nice", "Stranded In The Middle Of Noplace", "You Bent My Mind", "Without You I'd Be Lost", "Love Keeps Callin My Name", and "So Many Lonely Nights Ahead".
