STYLISTICS WITH CARL CARLTON

DESERT DIAMOND WELCOMES THE STYLISTICS WITH CARL CARLTON TO THE
DIAMOND CENTER.

One of the best things to ever happen to soul music began with the breakup of two high school bands. The remaining members united – and together they gifted the world with The Stylistics. In 1971, the group collaborated with legendary producer Thom Bell and released their debut self-titled album. Success was instant and phenomena and with the then unheard-of release of six singles from this album alone. The Stylistics produced 12 consecutive top-ten hits from 1971 to 1974, culminating in a Grammy nomination for “You Make Me Feel Brand New.” Hit has followed hit for The Stylistics, making them into a shining example of longevity in a business known for its one-hit wonders, breakups and strife.

Born in Detroit, Michigan, Carl Carlton began his career in the mid-1960s and by 1968 had been signed to the Back Beat Record label. His first single with the label, “Competition Ain’t Nothing” became a huge hit on the UK northern soul scene. Carlton finally saw major success in the U.S. with a cover version of Robert Knight’s “Everlasting Love.” This song went to #6 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart, and #11 on the Billboard R&B Charts in 1974. Carlton’s next major hit was a Leon Haywood-penned single, “She’s a Bad Mama Jama (She’s Built, She’s Stacked)”, which peaked at #2 on the soul chart and earned Carlton a Grammy nomination in 1982. Carlton’s subsequent album, Carl Carlton, went gold in 1981.

America

AMERICA AT THE DIAMOND CENTER 

America formed in the late 1960s and quickly reached the top of the charts with their signature song “A Horse With No Name.” Their best-known tunes, which also include “Don’t Cross The River,” “Tin Man,” “Lonely People,” and “Sister Golden Hair,” were cornerstones of 1970s Top 40 and FM rock radio. In 1972, America was rewarded for their hits by winning the Grammy for Best New Artist. Their albums—six certified gold and/or platinum, with their first greatest hits collection, History, hitting four plus million in sales—displayed a fuller range of the group’s talents than did their singles. Their material encompassed an ambitious artistic swath, from effects-laden rockers to oddball medleys to soul-bearing ballads.

In 1982, America once again hit it big with their smash single, “You Can Do Magic.” America experienced growth as singers, songwriters and musicians during this period, which has continued into the present day as illustrated by landmark releases such as 2000’s “Highway” 3-disc box set, 2002’s “Holiday Harmony”, an album comprised of seasonal classics and live showcases, 2007’s “Here & Now,” 2009’s “Live In Concert: Wildwood Springs,” and 2011’s “Back Pages.”
