Thursday 5/13/21 12pm ET: Artist Countdown: The Stylistics Top 30 Hits

The Stylistics are an American, Philadelphia soul group that achieved their greatest chart success in the 1970s. They formed in 1968, with a lineup of singers Russell Thompkins Jr., Herb Murrell, Airrion Love, James Smith, and James Dunn. All of their US hits were ballads characterized by the falsetto of Russell Thompkins Jr. and the production of Thom Bell. During the early 1970s, the group had twelve consecutive R&B top ten hits, including “Stop, Look, Listen”, “You Are Everything”, “Betcha by Golly, Wow”, “I’m Stone in Love with You”, “Break Up to Make Up”, and “You Make Me Feel Brand New”, which earned them 5 gold singles and 3 gold albums.

As of 2020, the remaining members of the original group, Love and Murrell were still performing, continuing the Stylistics legacy with their unit. While Thompkins and his New Stylistics continue to perform as well.
