*About the Artists:

The Stylistics*
During the early ‘70s, The Stylistics were the leading Philly soul group. The band had 12 straight Top Ten hits, including “You Are Everything” “Betcha by Golly, Wow” “I’m Stone in Love With You” “Break Up to Make Up” and “You Make Me Feel Brand New” Of all their peers, The Stylistics were one of the smoothest and sweetest soul groups of their era.
*
The Emotions*
A trio of sisters with a strong gospel base, the Emotions (based in Chicago) were one of the leading female R&B acts of the ’70s. Lead singer Sheila Hutchinson and her sisters Wanda and Jeanette were only teenagers when they crashed the soul charts in 1969 with the engaging “So I Can Love You,” but they sang gospel as children and enjoyed secular fame locally before signing with Memphis-based Volt and working with producers Isaac Hayes and David Porter. When Stax folded in 1975, the group hooked up with Maurice White of Earth, Wind & Fire, an association that led to the number one pop/R&B hit “Best of My Love” in 1977.

Manhattans
Jersey City natives, The Manhattans, sold millions of records over four decades. Honors include winning NATRA’s “Most Promising Group” in 1969. In the late 70’s recorded and released the songs they are are still best known for — “Kiss and Say Goodbye” and “Shining Star”. Through the years, the group has persevered though numerous management and personnel changes to continue performing and recording.

William Hart’s The Delfonics
Known for their sleek, soulful Philadelphia sound, this trio has been performing for nearly 40 years. Their first chart topper, La La Means I Love You, was released in 1968, followed by hit singles including You Get Yours, I’ll Get Mine, I’m Sorry, and Ready or Not. In 1971, the group received a Grammy for the single Didn’t I.

The Legendary Blue Notes
The first single, “I Miss You,” was a hit on the R&B charts, but their second was a smash — the classic ballad “If You Don’t Know Me by Now,” which featured an anguished, star-making vocal turn from Pendergrass. “If You Don’t Know Me by Now” went all the way to number one R&B, and also became their only Top Five hit on the pop side; it was later covered in 1989 for a number one hit by Simply Red. The Blue Notes scored again in 1973 with the string-laden dance track “The Love I Lost,” credited by many observers as one of the first disco records; it was their second R&B chart-topper and Top Ten pop single. The accompanying album, Black & Blue, produced another R&B Top Ten in the follow-up “Satisfaction Guaranteed (Or Take Your Love Back).”
