The Spinners’ 1973 LP was self-titled because it represented a new start for the group. They had a new label (Atlantic), a new lead singer (Phillipe Wynne), and a new studio team (Sigma Sound Studios, in Philadelphia). This confluence of fresh ideas helped create one of the great soul masterpieces of the early '70s, one that boasted a trifecta of hits in “I’ll Be Around,” “Could It Be I’m Falling in Love," and “How Could I Let You Get Away.” The first song is one of the most seductive arrangements of all time, courtesy of Thom Bell. A sequence of guitar and bells chime as a heartbeat-like drum pattern builds from behind, drawing in listeners. The rest of the album followed the lead of its brilliant hit singles, creating a sound that was at once mature and perfectly sweet. Of the lesser-known tracks, the best are “Just You and Me Baby” and “One of a Kind (Love Affair),” in which the group’s cascading harmonies fall around a set of cyclical rhythms.
Pound for pound,note for note and tune for tune...this is the greatest single soul album ever recorded. I doubt the Spinners knew what they had back in '72. "72? Oh dear, 35 years ago and this music is still vital,beautiful, uplifting. The Spinners were/are the absolute perfect mix of church and street.I listen to this music everyday.
Anyone who grew up in the 60's or 70's would love this classic from a group that, I feel, never got the recognition it deserved. The sound is as great today as it was then and it is classic.
Not to be missed
I think this, along with the Jackson 5's "ABC" are two of the best pop/r&b albums of the 70s.
