StylisticsSome Things Never Change ... LP
Streetwise, 1984. Very Good+ ... $2.99
An overlooked later moment from The Stylistics – proof that a great vocal group never gets old! The set has the quartet reinventing themselves for a new generation – recording for Arthur Baker's Streetwise Records, and getting production and arrangements from Maurice Starr – who has this great way of creating an 80s take on the mellow modes that always suited the group's vocals so well – the kind of late nite harmony numbers The Stylistics virtually helped invent! There's a few more electro soul numbers, too – and even these sound pretty great, given that there's an honesty to the vocals that's very different than a stiffer singer of the vocoder generation. Titles include "Give A Little Love For Love", "The Girl In Yellow", "Love Is Not The Answer", "Just The Two Of Us", and "Some Things Never Change". LP, Vinyl record album

StylisticsSpecial Style ... CD
Streetwise/Octave (Japan), 1985. New Copy ... $13.99
A whole new sound for The Stylistics – one that has the group working here with Maurice Starr in a sweet 80s street soul style! The approach is a surprisingly good one – and given that Starr's backings are always on the lighter side of the spectrum, the group's trademark harmonies are never dominated too much by the beats and the basslines! In a way, hearing Starr work with The Stylistics here, we can almost hear the link he made between older group soul modes and some of the younger acts he pushed to fame in the 80s – but that's not to say that this set is a pop record at all – because The Stylistics keep things real throughout with a great old school approach to their vocals. Titles include "Love Is Serious", "Special", "Let's Go Rockin", "O Sha Ma", "Sad Girl", and "Only From The Heart". CD

✨✧ StylisticsStylistics ... LP
Avco, 1971. Very Good- ... Just Sold Out!
A masterpiece of harmony soul – one of THE all-time greats of the genre, and a lasting treasure from The Stylistics! The album really took vocal soul to a whole new level for the 70s – pushing from the sometimes fragile ballad style of the late 60s into a smoother, more mature sound that was impeccably produced, yet still had all the depth of feeling as before! Maestro Thom Bell is the man to thank for the greatness of this album – as his production and musical vision really helped The Stylistics hit levels that few other groups like this were reaching at the time. Titles include their seminal long version of "People Make the World Go Round" – which, at 6 minutes in length, was really unusual for the time. Other titles include "Stop Look & Listen", "Betcha By Golly Wow", "You're A Big Girl Now", "If I Love You", "Ebony Eyes", and "You Are Everything". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Stylistics5 Classic Albums (Stylistics/Stylistics 2/Let's Put It All Together/From The Mountain/Thank You Baby)(5CD set) ... CD
Avco/Spectrum (UK), Early 70s. Used 5 CDs ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A wonderful set of work from one of the greatest vocal groups of the 70s – presented here in a package that features five full albums, all in little LP-styled sleeves! The first two albums might well be the blueprint for sweet soul in years to come – the legendary Stylistics and Stylistics 2 – records that managed to bridge heartbreaking soul with more righteous currents of social consciousness, at a level that's still extremely relevant all these many years later. The other records to follow are slightly less classic, but still a strong cut above most of the group's contemporaries – and are overflowing with mellow soul gems that never get old. There's a special feature to this package, too – given its British nature – in that the cover of Stylistics 2 is different than the "black fist" cover in the US, with a very different image of the group used for the UK – and the album From The Mountain is actually their record Heavy – but presented here with a different title and cover for the UK. 48 tracks in all – including "Betcha By Golly Wow", "People Make The World Go Round", "Children Of The Night", "You'll Never Get To Heaven", "You're Right As Rain", "Pieces", "Love Is The Answer", "You Make Me Feel Brand New", "Star On A TV Show", "Heavy Fallin Out", "Thank You Baby", "Tears & Souvenirs", "I'm Stone In Love With You", "You Are Everything", "Stop Look Listen", "You're A Big Girl Now", "It's Too Late", "Break Up To Make Up", "Doin The Streets", and lots lots more!

✨✧ StylisticsRound 2 ... LP
Avco, 1972. Very Good+ ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Landmark harmony soul from The Stylistics – a set that's every bit as wonderful as their debut, with the kind of sweet, soulful sound that got played over and over and over and over again back in the day! The album's got a subtle sort of power, though – one that lies not only in its classic cover image, but also in the way that the group mix up the fragile themes of love with some deeper aspects of the human condition – heard to best effect on the classic "Children Of The Night" – a massive 7 minute number that stands nicely next to the shorter singles. Thom Bell produced and arranged the whole thing to Philly perfection – with lots of help from Linda Creed on the songwriting – and titles include "Children of the Night", "Break Up To Make Up", "You'll Never Get To Heaven", "Stone In Love With You", "It's Too Late", "If You Don't Watch Out", and "Peek A Boo".

✨✧ StylisticsLion Sleeps Tonight ... CD
Dash/Ultra Vybe (Japan), 1979. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A lesser-known album from The Stylistics – at least in comparison to their mega-hits of the early 70s – but a set that's still got the vocal group in beautifully harmonic formation! The group are still produced by the team of Hugo & Luigi, and arrangements are by Horace Ott – who turns in a 70s version of the full, emotive backings he could bring to a soul record back in the 60s – almost an old school level of presentation that's a really nice surprise – even as the group step out in a few clubbier numbers, which they really know how to handle well. Titles include "School For Lovers", "Fly", "Music Is Another Word For Love", "We'll Live The Good Life Together", "Make Believe", "Where You Are", and "Sunday In The Chapel". CD

Blue MagicBlue Magic ... LP
Atco, 1974. Near Mint- ... $29.99
The start of a tremendous run from Blue Magic – easily one of the greatest harmony groups of the 70s, a quintet we'd place in a rare class with heavy hitters like The Stylistics or The Moments! The album's smooth and sweet, but never slick – perfectly arranged by the great Norman Harris, who makes the vocals sound equally great on mellow tracks and uptempo numbers – setting a new Philly standard with the album, and one that few other groups could match so well! Every piece of the core 70s Philly harmony sound is in place here – from the near-perfect (but wonderfully human) vocals of the group, to the full yet subtle backings by Sigma players who include Vince Montana, Earl Young, Bobby Eli, and Harris himself – and if you've ever needed a record to prove the genius of the east coast harmony sound, this may well be it! Titles include "Look Me Up", "What's Come Over Me", "Tear It Down", "Sideshow", "Stop To Start", "Welcome To The Club", and "Just Don't Want To Be Lonely". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Heaven & EarthI Can't Seem To Forget You ... CD
GEC/P-Vine (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... $19.99
The classic first LP by this stellar Chicago harmony group – and a monster! Heaven & Earth had a wonderful falsetto harmony sound that reminds us a lot of east coast winners like Blue Magic or The Stylistics – and like some of the best east coast groups, this group's vocals work equally well on slow ballads or faster uptempo numbers, both of which are handled extremely well on the record by producer Clarence Johnson. The bulk of the arrangements on the record were done by Tom Tom 84 – one of Chicago's true soul geniuses, and in perfect form on this record. The whole thing's amazingly well put together for an indie soul group album – and is a sure indication of the group's later fame on Mercury. Titles include "Nature's Miracle", "The Message", "I'll Always Love You", "Let Me Back In", and "I Can't Seem To Forget You". CD

Maysa (Maysa Leak)Sweet Classic Soul ... CD
Shanachie, 2006. Used ... $6.99
Timeless soul from Maysa – who here lends her sweet molasses vocals to numbers made famous by Stevie Wonder, Teddy Pendergrass, The Isley Brothers, Chaka Khan, The Stylistics, Roberta Flack and others! Maysa fully employs the sophisticated mellow soul approach on this set – befitting the material quite grandly with her sultry vocals, and tight band providing laidback keys, snapping drums & percussion, and some jazzy smooth horns and flute in spots. The most mature outing yet from the gifted vocalist whose roots helped plant Incognito! Tracks include "Wishing On A Star", "Don't Say Goodnight", "All I Do", "Love Won't Let Me Wait", "Come Go With Me", "Betcha By Golly Wow", "Playing Your Game, Baby", "Love Comes Easy", "Any Love" and "The First Time (I Ever Saw Your Face)".

Two great cuts from this oft-overlooked east coast vocal group, who, at their best moments, could rank with the best of them. This is definitely one of their best moments, and "Extra-Ordinary People" could rank with some of the Stylistics best from the time. Their cover of the Eddie Holman hit is nice, too. 7-inch, Vinyl record

✨✧ VariousPure Miami Jewels – TK Hot Numbers ... CD
TK/Ultra Vybe (Japan), Late 70s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A great little set that really looks at the wide range of sounds handled by Miami's TK Records powerhouse in the 70s – a label that's famous for its big disco hits, but which also had a lot more to offer, too! There's definitely some clubby cuts on the collection, but most of those are nicely past the TK hits of the time – and interspersed here with other numbers that shows the label's great commitment to deep soul, where they were flying the flag strongly after labels like Atlantic or Stax had dropped the ball. There's also some surprisingly smooth, sophisticated cuts – showing the modern soul shift the label was making – and which no doubt would have suited them very strongly into the 80s, had they kept up their 70s steam. Titles include "Secret Lover" by Paulette Reeves, "Ebony Affair" by Timmy Thomas, "That's What I Get" by Beginning Of The End, "Fly" by The Stylistics, "What Do We Do About Our Love" by Leon Debouse, "Can't Do Without You" by Eddie Horan, "Somebody's Gettin It" by Ted Taylor, "That Woman" by Wilson Pickett, "Tonight Is The Night" by Betty Wright, "Put Pride Aside" by Latimore, "People Fall In Love" by Foxy, and "Tired Of Hiding" by Jackie Moore.
