The Spinners: The Complete Atlantic Singles - The Thom Bell Productions 1972-1979 (2-CD)

(Real Gone Music) 43 tracks.

The Spinners' "Complete Atlantic Singles" is a one-of-a-kind collection for the ages.... the pinnacle of sweet 70's soul!

Could it be that you're falling in love right now? With six Grammy Award nominations, eighteen gold and platinum albums, twenty Top 40 pop singles, and both pop and R&B chart-toppers, The Spinners have more than earned their place in the pantheon of American pop.

Working with producer, arranger and conductor Thom Bell, the five-piece group of Philippé Wynne, Bobbie Smith, Henry Fambrough, Billy Henderson and Pervis Jackson (and later John Edwards) helped define the sound of smooth and Philadelphia soul in the 1970s while paving the way for disco. With Bell's unique arrangements and MFSB's distinctive musicianship, The Spinners delivered rich, textured harmonies in hit after hit, including "I'll Be Around," "Could It Be I'm Falling in Love," "One of a Kind (Love Afford)," and The Spinners' "One of a Kind (Love Affair)," "Sadie," "The Rubberband Man," and the No. 1 duet "Then Came You" with Dionne Warwick.

The Spinners

That's What Girls Are Made For

Naming The Spinners after their lead tenor's favorite spiffy Cadillac hubcaps apparently ensured the Detroit quintet getting off to a speedy start once they landed a recording contract. That's What Girls Are Made For, their debut on the Tri-Phi label, zipped out to a #5 R&B/#27 pop showing in the summer of 1961.

Tenors C.P. Spencer (born January 13, 1938 in Detroit), Billy Henderson (born August 9, 1936), and Edgar 'Chico' Edwards, baritone Henry Fambrough (born May 10, 1938), and bass Pervis Jackson (born May 17, 1938 in New Orleans) came together in 1954 as The Domingos. Bobbie Smith (born April 10, 1936) joined a couple of years later and ascended to the lead role when Spencer split to join The Five Jets. Harvey Fuqua, former lead singer of The Moonglows, had relocated to Detroit and teamed with Berry Gordy's sister Gwen to launch Tri-Phi. The Spinners were their first signing.

Harvey polished The Spinners and had them wax That's What Girls Are Made For, which he'd penned with Gwen, at Motown. By then Edwards had left temporarily; he was replaced by short-termer George Dixon. A Moonglows tinge distinguishes the lovely ballad, Tri-Phi's inaugural release that May with Harvey's discovery Marvin Gaye on drums. The rocking Heebie Jeebie's (penned by Fuqua and Smith) sat on the B-side. Their Tri-Phi encore Love (I'm So Glad) I Found Youmade it to #91 pop late in the year, butWhat Did She Use and She Don’t Love Me didn’t follow suit.

Motown absorbed Tri-Phi and its sister Harvey label in 1963, picking up The Spinners, Shorty Long, Johnny Bristol, and Jr. Walker in the process. It was late '64 before The Spinners had a Motown release, Sweet Thing. They nailed their first national hit for Berry Gordy's enterprise the next year with the soulful I'll Always Love You, and their inspiring Truly Yours did the same in 1966. During a long gap on the charts, the group busied themselves with various tasks at Hitsville.

"They chauffeured The Tempts around so much, they thought they were The Tempts' drivers," says G.C. Cameron, who replaced Edwards and sang lead on the quintet's 1970 smash It's A Shame, produced and co-written by Stevie Wonder. G.C. was contractually obligated to remain at Motown when The Spinners defected to Atlantic in '71 (Phillippe Wynne succeeded him). Working with Philly producer Thom Bell, The Spinners commenced a string of smashes in 1972 with the silky I'll Be Around and Could It Be I'm Falling In Love. With John Edwards coming in for Wynne in 1977, The Spinners endured decade after decade. Spencer died October 20, 2004; Henderson succumbed to diabetic complications on February 2, 2007, and Jackson passed away from cancer on August 18, 2008.
