In 1966, The Stylistics formed in Philadelphia, PA from two groups, The Percussions & The Monarchs. When members from each group were drafted, the remaining members joined forces to become The Stylistics. The original group lineup was Russell Thompkins Jr., Herb Murrell, Airrion Love, James Smith, and James Dunn.
Their first song, You’re a Big Girl Now, hit #1 in Philadelphia, and other cities soon followed. Bill Perry then contacted Avco Records and made a record deal. Hit producer Thom Bell produced their first album, The Stylistics, featuring hit songs “Stop, Look, Listen To Your Heart”, “You Are Everything” and “Betcha By Golly Wow”. The album’s success was phenomenal and continued with the release of their second album, Round Two.
