"Blue-Eyed Soul" duo Daryl Hall and John Oates joined the "MTV Unplugged" roster in mid-1990. The artists that hold the record for having the most Top 40 songs in the 1980s performed the classic #1 hits "She's Gone" and "Out of Touch," and debuted their '90s hit "So Close." They were backed by such highly acclaimed musicians as Tom "T-Bone" Wolk and Bob Mayo. The timelessness of their songs shows why Billboard magazine deemed them the Most Successful Duo in Rock 'N' Roll History. Audience reaction to the accoustic set influenced their decision to support the "Change of Season" album with an all-accoustic tour later that year. MTV1990-01.jpg (24925 Byte)

An excerpt from the MTV Unplugged book... "Daryl Hall was an exceptional voice, and hits like 'Out of Touch' and 'She's Gone' seemed completely reinvigorated. Hall & Oates was also one of the first groups to recognize the show's increasing significance. Although they had already completed an upcoming album, the success of their Unplugged performance inspired them to add a last-minute acoustic version of 'So Close' and then hit the road on a full acoustic tour."
