Concert #5 - The Righteous Brothers at Disneyland (1983)
Bill Medley and Bobby Hatfield arrived on a motorized raft. When they sang together in harmony, they sounded just like one would expect the Righteous Brothers to sound. Bill's voice was as powerful as ever, but Bobby's solo moments weren't quite as good - he had some trouble hitting Unchained Melody's high notes. But they did most of their greatest hits and everyone was happy.
The show ended with the two hopping back on the raft, which then took them just a couple of feet from the "mainland". Then they were gone.
My father, who was in his 70s at the time, was quite impressed with the show. Unlike my mother.
Driving home, I remember constantly going from one oldie radio station to another, hoping to hear the Brothers sing, but no luck.
