A TV advertised 'greatest hits' album that somehow manages to omit two of their greatest hits: Can't Help Falling In Love and Star On A TV Show.

I'm sure they'll be on the next Extremely Ultimate Very Best Of... CD due sometime soon.

I have loved the stylistics forever so this is one of the best albums to go back in time and remember all those times in your past.
Soul at its best with tunes that you can remember and songs that you can sing along to,in this day and age it makes a change to be able to.
That distinctive Betcha Golly Wow to that You Make Me Feel Brand New,one of my all time favorites is I Can't Give you Anything But My Love.The high and distinctive singing voice with the ranges falling away gave this group it's clear cut sound,in my opinion this is one of the best all round collections.
Disco numbers that you can dance around your front room to buy and enjoy your trip down memory lane.

Hey! Whats not to like. Great songs, great voices, great to listen to. I am a huge Bon Jovi fan and found this album to be a welcome change. Then again I am of that era so maybe thats why, but give it a go for great music, with great orchestral arrangements, not found on many many many pop tracks today.

Go ahead, buy it. You wont be disappointed.

I originally had this on vynil and so I am not dissappointed by the CD. I had the pleasure of seeing the Stylistics live recently and they are as good as ever. This is a great albumn and it is amazing how many hits they had. There is music to dance to, music for a romantic dinner for two and music to make you smile.

Russell Thompkins Jr wraps his smooth falsetto vocals around the tracks on this album with distinct style. There were 10 top 10 hits (in Britain) from this album. It all kicks off with their only number 1 hit 'Can't give you anything'; which for me is one of their best ever releases and the quality rarely goes down hill from there until you get to the last and 21st song.

These songs came from the times where Philly soul was probably it's most popular, around this period the American soul legend Teddy Pendergrass came in with writers Gamble and Huff behind him. I have to say that my absolute favourite song on the album is the Weiss/Peretti/Creatore penned song 'Thank you Baby' as if I were a writer I would have loved to write this song for my wife but alas my writing skills are of a lower quality, having said that All I need is you by Teddy Pendergrass would be another one too.

I will now broaden my search for more Philly soul as the classic songs/ballads seem to originate from this era.

This is an album I would reccomend to anyone who likes the music of the Stylistics. It bought back a lot of memories of my childhood in the 1970's. Standout tracks for me are :
You Are Everything
Can't Give You Anything But My Love
People Make The World Go Round
You Make Me Feel Brand New
Stop Look Listen (To Your Heart)

All of which are digitally enhanced so sound clear and loud... there are a couple of missing tunes like Can't Help Falling In Love and Star On A TV Show but they are not standout tracks for me and I was happy with this cd.
