The Best of 70's Soul

The Manhattans ft. Gerald Alston, Russell Thompkins & The New Stylistics, Harold Melvin's Blue Notes

Hear soul hits from three popular groups from the 1970s.

The Manhattans were formed in the 1960s as a doo wop-influenced R&B quintet, before reinventing themselves as sweet smooth soul balladeers during the 1970s with Gerald Alston joining the group.   They scored one of their biggest hits “Kiss and Say Goodbye” in 1976.

For over 30 years, Russell Thompkins, Jr. was the original lead singer of the Stylistics. His falsetto gave the group hits like “You’re A Big Girl Now,” “Stop, Look, Listen,” “Betcha By Golly Wow” and “Break Up To Make Up.” He assembled The New Stylistics along with the band’s original guitarist Raymond Johnson to preserve group’s legacy.

Carrying on the legacy of Harold Melvin and The Blue Notes, Donnell Gillespie, Rufus Thorn, Anthony Brooks and John Morris excite crowds with the same array of groovy rhythms and soulful ballads that was the foundation for the ambitious Philadelphia soul band that produced hits like “The Love I Lost,” “Wake Up Everybody” and “If You Don’t Know Me By Now.”
