  • vvCool story.
  • Amazing that 'You Make Me Feel Brand New' was originally a 'b' side ( Only For the Children). I used to be half of a local mobile Disco at the time, and we used to play it at every gig we played in early 74. The Stylistics actually came to Peterborough that June (unusual as we didn't get anyone big normally). When they played the latest single 'Only For the Children' they got a very muted response. But when they played 'You Make Me Feel Brand New' the roof came off. Shortly afterwards they turned the single over and had their big hit. Always felt we had a small hand in that (although probably not lol). I'm sure we weren't the only ones who had noticed a big difference in quality between the 'A' & 'B' Side. I miss 7" singles.

  • I've been looking for years for a song which I don't know the lyrics and which I saw the name "The Stylistics" on it, unfortunately I don't remember its name. I only remember that it does have a horn, a high octave keyboard just like little bells and there's a time when the group sings like "pa-ra pa-ra pa-ra pa-ra PA!". Anyone could help me on this one, please?
