THE STYLISTICS: LOVE IS BACK IN STYLE (SoulMusic Records/Warner X)

The Stylistics

The Stylistics are renowned for their vocal harmonies and LOVE IS BACK IN STYLE is a testament to the timeless quality of their artistry. The group - known for such classics as "Betcha By Golly Wow," "You Are Everything" and "You Make Me Feel Brand New" - first came to prominence in 1971 working with Thom Bell, the legendary producer, songwriter and arranger, one of the architects of Philly Soul.  In 1994, three original members of the group  (Russell Thompkins, Airrion Love and Herb Murrell) cut this wonderful album with Preston Glass, a protege of Thom Bell at the outset of his own career. 

Available for the first time digitally, the original 1994 CD release prompted the following comments in an All Music Guide review: "A few tracks into this and you'll think you're listening to a reunion of the Stylistics and Thom Bell...This one...surrounds the group with elegance and first-class Philly songs and arrangements. Russell Thompkins' effortless falsetto never sounded better, and the same is true for Herb Murrell, and Aiiron Love, whose deeper register takes "Love Can Heal a Wounded Heart" to lofty heights. There are too many keepers...to single out favorites, but if you enjoyed the early Stylistics, you'll love this well-crafted and well-executed gem."
