Blue-eyed soul: Colour Me Soul
Bill Millar, History of Rock, The, 1983
The phrase 'blue-eyed soul' was coined by Georgie Woods, a black disc jockey on the WDAS radio station in Philadelphia. One of the major personalities in the field, Woods invented the term to categorise the Righteous Brothers, whose records were played on R&B radio stations before black disc jockeys and programme directors realised they were white.
