The Stylistics ... the ultimate in showmanship, harmony and style. You know their hits
"Betcha By Golly Wow," "You're My Everything,"
"I'm Stone in Love With You." Of course, there are scores of
other hits, all with the magical sounds and grace of The Stylistics.
Collectively they are one of the best-loved and longest-lasting R&B
groups to date.
The Stylistics were formed in the late
'60s when two Philadelphia high school groups, the Monarchs and
the Percussions, disbanded. At the suggestion of a teacher, the
remaining members of each group came together to form a new entity. That
entity became The Stylistics.

with The Stylistics
Originally consisting of
Russell Thompkins, Jr.,
Airrion Love, James Smith, James Dunn and Herb Murrell, The
Stylistics hit the Top Ten at the top of the Seventies. Shortly
after their initial chart success, they were put together with the
songwriting and production team of Thom Bell and Linda Creed. That
pairing would lead to a string of major hits over the next few years
that would put The Stylistics indelibly on the R&B map.

groups of the day such as the
they managed to forge their own unique sound and identity. In the
mid-'70s, due to differences between the producers and the label, the
Thom Bell/Linda Creed deal was terminated. And, in the early '80s, the
two "Jameses," Smith and Dunn, departed. Today, the group continues to
tour and record with founding members Airrion Love and

"You're a Big Girl Now," they continued to exist at the top of
the charts with 12 consecutive top ten soul hits, including "You
Make Me Feel Brand New" (which received a Grammy Award Nomination)
and "Break Up To Make Up." "The
Best of The Stylistics" went Double Platinum, selling more than four million
Their 1992 Christmas-album release, "Stylistics
Christmas," launched their 25th Anniversary Worldwide Tour.
Of all their peers, The Stylistics were one

hits were ballads, graced by the soaring falsetto of
Russell Thompkins, Jr. and the lush, yet graceful productions of Thom Bell.
