Thom Bell stopped working with the group in 1974, and the split proved commercially devastating to the group’s success in the U.S. However, in 1975, the Stylistics did release one single which was commercially successful as an early disco track entitled, “Hey, Girl, Come and Get It”. After 1976, the Stylistics general commercial decline was more pronounced, and they would only sporadically make the R&B charts the next two decades. However, just as U.S. success began to wane, their popularity in Europe, and especially the United Kingdom, increased. The lighter “pop” sound fashioned by Van McCoy and Hugo & Luigi gave the band a UK No. 1 in 1975 with “Can’t Give You Anything (But My Love)”.
