'Sorry Cilla,' Said The Righteous Brothers To RM's Norman Jopling, But 'We Don't Like Your Record!'

Norman Jopling, Record Mirror, 30 January 1965

"WHAT do we think of Cilla's version of 'You've Lost That Lovin' Feeling'?" said America's Righteous Brothers when I posed them the question. "Well, we don't like it...for a start we don't think she sings the song in the way that it's meant to be sung. When we first heard that Cilla Black had recorded it we were pleased and complimented – especially as Cilla was one of Britain's top singers. Also, we went mad over her recording of 'You're My World'.
