Soft And Soulful was an overall more satisfying album as he stuck close to his soulful roots. “Peace Brother Peace” had a gospel feel with lyrics that fit the peace movement of the late 1960s well. Other cover songs had more of a soul pedigree. “Then You Can Tell Me Goodbye” (The Casinos), “For Your Precious Love” (Jerry Butler & The Impressions), “Any Day Now” (Chuck Jackson), and “When Something Is Wrong With My Baby” (Sam & Dave) all came to life through his soulful vocals. Medley even wrote three tracks, and co-wrote a fourth. “I’m Gonna Die Me,” “Reaching Back,” “Something’s So Wrong,” and “Street Of Dirt” were a welcome return to the style and sound of his Righteous Brothers days.
Bill Medley 100% and Soft And Soulful have been out of print for years. Their return should please all fans of Bill Medley and the Righteous Brothers.
