Album Review

The Spinners lost lead singer Philippe Wynne in 1977, as he left to join Parliament/Funkadelic. While they were getting replacement John Edwards acclimated, Atlantic issued this greatest-hits LP containing all the gems with Wynne as their lead singer. Until the Atlantic two-CD set was issued, this was a definitive work, and it's still as complete a single album package as is available. It includes "Could It Be I'm Falling in Love," "How Could I Let You Get Away," "Mighty Love," "Rubberband Man," and "One of a Kind (Love Affair)," among others.

Differences Between this Playlist and Original Vinyl

Who can be sad listening to The Spinners? I have loved this music for many years because it just picks you and makes you feel like moving. That being said - I notice some differences between this list, the old cd, and the record, which I've practically worn out.

Most of the songs are basically the same length- such as : I'll Be Around - this list time is 3:14, the cd is 3:12, and the record is 3:10. However, there are 2 especially big differences in versions of Mighty Love and Rubberband Man. On this list Mighty Love is 3:18, the cd is 5:00, and the record is virtually the same at 4:56. On the iTunes playlist Rubberband Man is 7:24, while the cd and record are much shorter at 3:33 and 3:32 respectively.

The other notable song on this list that doesn't match the original album or cd is They Just Can't Stop It The (Games People Play) - 4:40 for iTunes, 3:28 for both record and cd.

Just wondering why the different versions are presented here - and suggest that maybe they should be labeled as such?

Felipe"Soul"Wynn was a GENIUS!!!...left us before his time....listen 2 Ghetto Child and enjoy

Nice compilation

But I believe the reviewer is slightly mistaken; this was released on Atlantic, not Motown . . . I had this on tape in the mid-80's and played it over and over - highly recommended.

The Spinners were the greatest soul group of the early '70s, creating a body of work that defined the lush, seductive sound of Philly soul. Ironically, the band's roots lay in Detroit, where they formed as a doo wop group during the late '50s. Throughout the '60s, the Spinners tried to land a hit by adapting to the shifting fashions of R&B and pop. By the mid-'60s, they had signed with Motown Records, but the label never gave the group much consideration. "It's a Shame" became a hit in 1970,...
