Overview

No disrespect to the Righteous Brothers. But if Webster's dictionary had an entry for "blue-eyed soul," there would be a picture of Daryl Hall and John Oates next to it. Anchored by Hall's lilting tenor and Oates's soulful baritone, the Philadelphia duo made pop-soul perfection in the late '70s and mid '80s with an engaging string of hits such as "Sara's Smile," Maneater," and "One on One." So what better way to honor the most successful duo in recording history than with a definitive best-of collection, The Very Best of Daryl Hall and John Oates -- which offers six more tracks than the 12-song retrospective Rock 'n' Soul Pt. 1. With their roots firmly planted in the Philly soul tradition of Kenneth Gamble and Leon Huff (Teddy Pendergrass, the O'Jays), Hall and Oates transcended racial and chart boundaries with synth-funk-drenched jams such as the irrepressible "I Can't Go for That (No Can Do)," which spent time atop both the pop and R&B charts. Other highlights of this excellent compilation include the precious pop gems "You Make My Dreams Come True" and "Private Eyes" and grittier chart-toppers "Adult Education" and "Method of Modern Love." On the latter track, the limber-voiced Hall inquires, "We know what we're doing, don't we?" After listening to this nostalgic collection, the obvious answer to that question is a resounding yes.
