Here was a mellow soul group who hit it big, back when mellow soul ruled the charts.Back when many music lovers say there was love in the air more then hate. I always felt they did a good job with music from good composers like THOM BELL, HUGO AND LUIGI etc etc.They were truly a class act, Any thoughts?

They were very good, and a couple of their songs had a peaceful rhythm to it*. I admit it took a few days to accept that falsetto voice when they first appeared.

I consider myself lucky, in a sense, to have grown up in the days of them and the Spinners and the Chi-Lites, etc.

"You Are Everything".

One of my favorite records of all time. But only their version.

Thom Bell, along with Gamble & Huff... some of the finest producers ever. Classy AND elegant.

Bingo. Bell, Gamble & Huff, I think Linda Creed wrote a few of their hits ( could be wrong) but yeah, Russell Thompkins' voice was magical.

You'll Never Get To Heaven, Betcha By Golly Wow, still just as lovely as ever!

VAN MCCOY AS WELL, sadly there was some tragedy along the way for the creative talent-LINDA CREED died young of cancer, VAN MCCOY died young of a heart attack.However the STYLISTICS themselves have hung in there pretty well over the decades.
