Wow, I wish I had your ears. I have heard this many times and I hear only a dirge. Even the beautiful voice of Phil does not lift it for me. Sorry Bert

I know where you are coming from Mike, I have heard it many times in the past and Phil is virtually covered, such a shame his beautiful voice is covered by the harsher Bill Medley.

I think it was in 2007 Redhead. On an album called amn Near Righteous.
Mike I have to admit that's Phil's voice is not "that" clear but he's there very close to the voice of Brian. Bill's voice in mix is indeed louder as lead singer.Brian and Phil are harmony singers and are mixed almost on the same level and melt almost to one voice, but right at the first lyric line I here Phil's voice next to Brian's. I just love it.

ps , don't understand why that smiley is there instead of the D in the song titel ?? I have edited that line several times , but it will not go away, gggrrrr.

Mike another thing : It is of course a Bill Medley's album, with Brian and Phil as background harmony singers.Phil's role is different here as in the Everly Brothers of course, where in some songs his voice was even louder in the mix as Don's.
Listen to this one where Phil is also invited to do background harmony....
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i0e_NtimnUM John Prine's album : The Missing Years.
The same story.Enjoy.

Have to say I enjoyed the harmony- It is difficult to distinguish Phil from Brian here.
As you said Bert their harmony seems to melt into one.
It's beautiful.

Bill medley is a bit gruff for me..
Off to listen again see if I can catch Phil's harmony.
Thank you again for sharing.


Oh!! Loving the John Prine one.
Thank you.

"In my room" is one of my favourite songs Bert... however it only works for me sung by the three Wilson brothers. I think Bill Medley's gravelly voice doesn't really suit this beautiful song.
I can pick out Brian's sweet voice but cannot distinguish dear Phil's at all. I would love to have heard Phil sing this solo. It
is an interesting version though and thank you for posting it.

Sorry Craig, that youtube link doesn't work, do you have an alternative or try pasting it again? Thanks

Nah, didn't think it would. I give up. It was a YouTube video of The Righteous Brothers on Shindig and Bill Medley explained first how the song "Little Latin Lupe Lu" came about....and....I know this is an EB site, but the closeness of performances, songs, music, interactions, etc., makes any other 'branch offs' o.k.

Sorry and thanks, Craig

There is a longer clip from Shindig and the Righteous Brothers Craig, but I wonder if this is the clip you were trying to post:



This one live on Shindig is a fantastic one too.

Thanks for your help, Chris. These are also great clips, but the other YouTube one was the one I was trying to post...probably just go to YT and type in "Little Latin Lupe Lu" - Bill Medley, perhaps and it will come up. Simply him relating how he came up with the song. Like Don & Phil, The R Brothers had great hits, heck, I liked Petula Clark, I liked The Animals ("Sky Pilot", Flatt & Scruggs, The Byrds, the list is endless....good, ol' rock-pop sounds from 1956 onward....although not much for me after 1970, IMHO, but that's just me. Young people growing up back then probably were really into whomever or whatever groups were 'hot' then........... instead of transistor radios, youth today have smart phones, iTunes and earbuds......

Hi Bert [& all],

The reason you keep getting the exasperating smiley is because the site's operating system is programmed to insert it whenever certain combinations of signs are typed, e.g. "colon" [:] + "closing parenthesis" [)] = .

In order to avoid this you can type a "square parenthesis" whenever you need one NOT changing into an emoticon, e.g. :]

In addition to explaining the origins of "Little Latin Lupe Lu" he tells the story of the name "Righteous Brothers", one of the first & most paradigmatic "Blue Eyed Soul" groups.

By the way, "Lupe" is short for "Guadalupe", maybe the most common name in Mexico due to "Our Lady of Guadalupe" having taken the place of one of the most important Aztec [actually Nahoa] female deities after the Spanish conquest.
