Righteous Brothers Japanese Verve Vinyl Albums


Last updated 19 February 2015 - Updated items in red

Generally speaking, record collectors will often cite Japanese records as being the best in the world, not only for their superior sound but also the packaging which included lyric sheets as standard in both Japanese and English languages. Also included, was the obi, a narrow paper sash with all the albums release information, these are also very collectable.

The Righteous Brothers releases in Japan on the Verve record label, manufactured by the Nippon Grammaphon company, are of interest to collectors because of the differences to their US counterparts, these changes are noted on the discography where applicable.

Any further information, including the details of the "Souled Out" & "Greatest Hits Vol. 2" albums would be gratefully received.
