The Stylistics "A Night of Soul Music" 3/22/2020 Agua Caliente, Rancho Mirage, CA
The Stylistics remains one of the best-known Philadelphia soul groups of the 1970s. They formed in 1968, and were composed of Herb Murrell, Airrion Love, James Smith, and James Dunn. All of their U.S. hits were ballads, graced by the lush productions of Thom Bell, which helped make the Stylistics one of the most successful soul groups of the first half of the 1970s. During the early 1970s, the group had twelve consecutive U.S. R&B top ten hits, including “Stop, Look, Listen”, “You Are Everything”, “Betcha by Golly, Wow”, “People Make the World Go Round”, “I’m Stone in Love with You”, “Break Up to Make Up”, and “You Make Me Brand New.”. Today’s Stylistics are the two originals, Love and Murrell, joined by Barrington Henderson and Jason Sharp.
