For All Lovers of Classic Soul Music

The Stylistics were one of the preeminant purveyors of Philly soul. Russell Tompkins Jr., had the greatest falsetto voice of any soul singer on this side of Smokey Robinson, and the songs were tender, nostalgic and warm. The hits are all here, and chances are you know more than a few of them. It seems that the chronological track listing is almost in step with the popularity of the hits. The only track that should be higher in this sense is "You Are Everything". It's easy to fall for these gorgeous songs, particularly the ballads, because they remain true to the form of soul, never falling victim to the middlebrow excesses of disco, which was enveloping popular culture when these songs, that were seemingly nostalgic for a more exciting time in musical history, were being penned. A must have for fans of soul music, particularly the Philly axis of the Temptations, Delfonics, O'Jays and the period prior to and including the early Gamble and Huff.

Oh man, I miss listening to them

There are so many memories this CD brings back. So many great songs, and perfect for listening on a summer day at the beach.
I knew a lot of these songs from first hearing them on the radio, but now that I see them all together, I realize just how much I loved listening to the songs of the Stylistics.

One of the best album

I think that this is one of the greatest albums ever created. I grew up with all of these songs in my life and I do wish that they could come back. We really need songs like these in our lives again. The world is a better place with artist like these... I love you guys and thank you for being a part of my life...
