The term blue-eyed soul was first used in connection with The Righteous Brothers by coloured American DJs. On earlier albums there were often only soul / R&B singles, but there were still some hits. This album was produced by Mickey Stevenson of Motown (Dancing in the Streets) and contains a strong selection of original material. The lack of hits has more to do with the hip music in 1967 than with the quality of the songs.Stranded In The Middle Of No Place was only a small hit, but had much more potential. So Many Lonely Nights Aheadand Love Keeps Callin' My Name are among the best tracks the duo Bobby Hatfield and Bill Medley ever released.
