Total Music. It is immediate - it is urgent - it is a concept of singing-performing to alert us to the fact that something emotionally satisfying is going on. It is, in fact, the Righteous Brothers.

It is a way of breaking away from preconceived patterns and creating something new and exciting. It is a way of blending the sounds of jazz, gospel, rhythm & blues, rock 'n' roll, spiritual and pop into a musical element that defies specific categorization but is still identifiable and a complete entity of its own. It is, and will continue to be, despite imitation, the Righteous Brothers' way.

At a time in our musical history when it was thought to be impossible to surprise an audience with any musical form at all, the Righteous Brothers came along with a style so individual and so fresh, and yet so honest and so right, that the audience was jolted into frenzied enthusiasm and their success was assured. It's been just a little over three years since Bill Medley and Bobby Hatfield, who are not related, became known as the Righteous Brothers but in that short time they've made a mark that's long and lasting.

One hit album has followed another and one hit single has been succeeded by another and their appearances in theatres, concerts, night clubs and television have created demands for return engagements. Total music begets total acceptance and total recognition.

Think of such history-making singles as Little Latin Lupe Lu, Koko Joe, Fannie Mae, Try To Find Yourself Another Man, You've Lost That Loving Feeling, Just Once In My Life, Hung On You and their newest hit Soul And Inspiration and you think of the Righteous Brothers. There is no one else. Just as there is no one else who could bring total music to this album, their first for Verve, and make it Total Entertainment.

And as a bonus, there's a track here by the Righteous Brothers' Band, the album-closing Rat Race. This is the same top-brass band that has been much sought after for an album all its own. Bill and Bobby wanted very much to have the group cut its first solo side on the Brothers' first Verve set.
