Phil Spector took his "wall of sound" recording technique to its utmost for this US Hot 100 number 1 hit. The Righteous Brothers was a duo consisting of bass-baritone Bill Medley and high tenor Bobby Hatfield. Medley was born on 19 September, 1940, in California, and Hatfield on 10 August, 1949, in Wisconsin. Medley had been a member of the Paramours, while Hadley had sung with a group called the Variations. They were brought together by a mutual friend, in the hope of forming a new lineup for the Paramours, but together they went on to form the Righteous Brothers and were discovered by Phil Spector when performing at a gig that also involved Spector's own Ronettes. The Righteous Brothers original version of "You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin'" was recorded over several days in October 1964 and released as a single on Philles Records 124. Because it was felt that the duration of the track (3m 46s) was too long to be acceptable to radio stations, the original label of the single version showed it to be just 3:05.
A rehearsal version of the number being sung by Elvis was recorded on 10 August 1970 and released on the "Elvis Aron Presley" silver set. A version sung on 11 August appeared on the "Live In Las Vegas" set, with the original Elvis release being recorded on 12 August, 1970 and available on the sets indicated above.
