Bridgewater 2014 [no label, 1CD]

Live at the Duke Island Park, Bridgewater, NJ; August 17, 2014. Good to fairly good audience recording.

It’s really back to the ’70s… the trademark falsetto vocals, the memorable songs and, whatever he felt, sure wished Russell Allen Thompkins, Jr was still with the group.

Thanks to TheCommish for recording and sharing the show at Dime.

TheCommish noted:

A dynamite FREE show that was a make-up for the original July 25 date that got postponed due to threatening early evening thunderstorms in the area. The only small gripe is that The Stylistics were originally scheduled to play a 90-minute show but the actual show clocks in a bit short of that mark. That’s because the band originally scheduled to play on this August 17 date (JoBonnano and the Godsons of Soul) became the night’s opening act and they played their full 90-minute show before The Stylistics took the stage. I’m guessing local curfews/sound ordinances had something to do with The Stylistics keeping their show a little short.

In any event, it was a great performance by the four members of The Stylistics as well as the members of their backing band, the Style Orchestra.

  1. One Response to “THE STYLISTICS - BRIDGEWATER 2014”

  2. this is my first full show of these guys. the only other recordings of them i have are audios of the tv performances that they have done on some of those pbs specials during fundraising week. usually its only a couple of songs. while i would much prefer a tv or fm or sbd type recording and again something from the 50s or 60s or even 70s this is good enough for me since its my first full set. a full cd length recording. i guess we dont see much soul or r&b on here. this is a nice one. ty vm for this.
