Best of 70s Soul: Music Is My Sanctuary

Philly soul group The Stylistics achieved their greatest chart successes in the 1970s. They were created from two different groups, namely The Percussions and The Monarchs. All of their hits were ballads, characterized by the smooth falsetto voice of Russell Thompkins, Jr. and the slick production of Thom Bell. During the early 1970s, the group had twelve consecutive R&B top ten hits in the US, including 'Stop, Look, Listen', 'You Are Everything', 'Betcha by Golly, Wow', 'People Make the World Go Round', 'I'm Stone in Love with You', 'Break Up to Make Up', and 'You Make Me Feel Brand New'. When disco broke loose by the end of the decade, their popularity faded.

The opening track by Patti Labelle is from the new mixed compilation album 'Glitterbox - Disco's Revenge', out on Defected Records.
