One of the best soul albums of the '70s owes its success to two men. First, there's Philippe Wynne, the sweet-voiced lead tenor who joined the Spinners not long before the album was recorded in 1972. And second, there's Thom Bell, the songwriter, producer, and arranger who, at Philly International, had already worked with the O'Jays and the Blue Notes. This historic teaming resulted in the soul-pop smashes "Could It Be I'm Falling in Love," "One of a Kind (Love Affair)," and "Ghetto Child," each of them matching Wynne's sweet leads with Bell's lush and delicate, but always deep-in-the-groove, arrangements. --David Cantwell

Critics have called this the best soul album ever. They're right. This is the best non-greatest hits soul album one can buy. Outstanding singing, precision producing make this a can't miss album. The album looks like a greatest hit package with "Ghetto Child," "One of a Kind Love Affair," "How Could I Let You Get Away," "I'll be Around" and others. The first track, "Just Can't Get You out of My Mind" gets you going and you won't be able to turn it off.

I've always been one for giving credit where it's due...and in the case of THE SPINNERS, one person always gets way TOO MUCH, and another doesn't get NEARLY ENOUGH.That person is the fantastic BOBBIE SMITH. BOBBIE has been the REAL LEAD SINGER OF THE SPINNERS FROM DAY ONE !!! He sang lead on the SPINNERS VERY FIRST HIT BACK IN 1961... ( That's What Girls Are Made For )...and also their first million seller ( "I'll Be Around" ). In between ,he lead virtually ALL of their PRE MOTOWN HITS ("Too Young, Too Much, Too Soon","What Did She Use " ,etc.)and such MOTOWN CLASSICS AS "TRULY YOURS" (my favorite SPINNERS song },"I'LL ALWAYS LOVE YOU "(the group's second biggest Motown hit} ,"SWEET THING",AND TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE SUCH SWEET MUSIC " And THEIR BIGGEST ATLANTIC HITS "COULD IT BE I'M FALLING IN LOVE " ,"GAMES PEOPLE PLAY ","MIGHTY LOVE", and "THEN CAME YOU"...Yet , Bobbie get's VIRTUALLY NO CREDIT FOR HIS PART IN THE SPINNERS' ACCOMPLISHMENTS..AND NEVER HAS !! In newspaper & magazine articles, music history books , even in ATLANTIC RECORDS own liner notes... all the credit goes to PHLLIP WALKER {aka PHILLIPPE WYNNE )!!Some music writers have even gone so far as to credit Phillippe for songs BOBBIE ACTUALLY SANG LEAD ON!! While I dont take anything away from Phillippe (he was a fantastic singer & dancer ), the REALITY is that his initial single with the SPINNERS, "HOW COULD I LET YOU GET AWAY"(which he sang lead on), ONLY REACHED #77 ON THE BILLBOARD pop chart! It was only after the nations' disc jockeys TURNED THE RECORD OVER TO IT'S FLIP SIDE,"I'LL BE AROUND" which BOBBIE SMITH sang lead on,, that the group had it's FIRST MILLION SELLER !! BOBBIE ALSO SANG LEAD ON THE GROUP'S SECOND MILLION SELLER, " COULD IT BE I'M FALLING IN LOVE ".Read more ›

The back of this CD states that this is simply the best Philly soul album you can buy, and I can't disagree. The Spinners put it all together on this one: soulful vocals, top notch songs, and great arrangements. The best word I can use to describe this music is SMOOTH. Every time I hear the opening strains of "Just Can't Get You Out Of My Mind" or "I'll Be Around" I know it's time to chill. Also, the seven minute "I Could Never (Repay Your Love)" contains one of the best vocal performances by the late great lead vocalist Phillipe Wynne. If you are a fan of soul music or R&B of any kind this disc should be in your collection.

I first herd "could it Be Im Falling In Love back when I was only 16.The Moment I herd it I was hooked.The thing that really hit me was"boy this is a different kind of music" It was the first time in which music actully touched my very soul.I had never herd such music before that could encompass your very Heart & soul.This I had to look into,and found out that the Artist involved was The Spinners,and the song in which I had instantly fell in love with was off of an album which I later discovered had numerous soul moving classics.I was then hooked and became enthralled to this unique new sound which was later coined The Philly Sound.(incidently The Spinners Im talking about are not of the Motown sound).I have noticed that some people get this point confused.There are two big ditinct differences between The Philly Sound and the *Motown sound(not to be confused)Because if you listen to early seventies Motown Sound then Listen to the Philly Sound and this isn't putting down the Motown sound but it's quite obvious that when you Listen to the Philly Vibes,it then makes the Motown sound seem stupid.What I mean is The Musician's who did the Arranging for All of Philly's super soul groups of the seventies are very unique and Classicly Trained such as Thom Bell who I personally believe was the master mind genious and Inovator of the Philly sound,whom incidently produced Arranged and conducted the Spinners along with penning songs with his partner,the late great Linda Creed.Also Arrangers Jack Faith,Bobby Martin,Norman Harris,e.t.c to name just a few contributed a great deal and of course last but not least the producing and song writing team of Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff.This Album is hands down The Spinners Very Best.virtully every track were Million Sellers.Read more ›

I already own this fabulously evocative Atlantic Records Soul LP from 1973 inside the SPINNERS "Original Album Series" 5CD set on Rhino – something I reviewed extensively way back in the mists of 2010. So why buy it again?

Because this new 2015 CD reissue is on Big Break Records of the UK (BBR is part of Cherry Red) and I always get a bit excited by their sensationally good Remasters. The Audio on this peach is best ever and along with quality presentation, a Previously Unreleased in the Bonus Tracks that actually enhances, a total playing time of nearly 78 minutes and a miserly mid-price – and I’m a very happy satin-suited bunny. Life ain't easy indeed...here are the Ghetto Children...

UK released 6 November 2015 – "Spinners" by SPINNERS on Big Break Records WCDBBRX 0321 (Barcode 5013929062139) is an 'Expanded Edition' CD Remaster with 8 Bonus Tracks and plays out as follows (77:43 minutes):

1. Just Can't Get You Out Of My Mind
2. Just You And Me Baby
3. Don't Let The Green Grass Fool You
4. I Could Never (Repay Your Love)
5. I'll Be Around
6. One Of A Kind (Love Affair) [Side 2]
7. We Belong Together
8. Ghetto Child
9. How Could I Let You Get Away
10. Could It Be I'm Falling In Love
Tracks 1 to 10 are the album "Spinners' by SPINNERS - released March 1973 on Atlantic SD 7256 in the USA and Atlantic K 40477 in the UK. In Britain the band was known as and credited as - THE DETROIT SPINNERS. THOM BELL Produced the album (JIMMY ROACH Produced tracks 11 to 14) and it peaked at No. 1 on the US R&B charts - No. 14 on Pop.
