In 1979, superstar R&B veterans The Spinners were rewarded by their label Atlantic Records with their first greatest hits album simply titled The Best of Spinners. Featuring the classic line-up of the Phillipe Soul Wynn, Henry Fambrough, Pervis Jackson, Bobbie Smith and Billy Henderson, these Detroit superstars ruled the charts for many soulful years.
Featuring a ton of smash hits produced and written by the likes of Philly favorites Thom Bell and Linda Creed, and featuring The Sound Of Philadelphia and Motown players like MFSB, and the Funk Brothers' Bob Babbit, The Best of Spinners album has become one of their most loved works in their stunning gold and platinum career.
With superlative chart topping pop and R&B classics like "One Of A Kind Love Affair," "Could It Be I'm Falling In Love," "I'll Be Around" and "Mighty Love," plus brilliant dance smashes like "The Rubberband Man," "The Best of Spinners" album would go on to become one of the best-selling albums in their extensive catalog. The long out of print original version of this greatest hits masterpiece also includes the history making duet with Dionne Warwick and their chart topper, "Then Came You."
Dig deeper into the Philly and Detroit grooves and there you find even more platinum plus treasures like the masterful "One of a Kind (Love Affair)," the powerful "They Just Can't Stop It the (Games People Play)" plus the tender ballads "Sadie" and "How Could I Let You Get Away," making The Best of Spinners one of the finest overviews ever of this stellar supergroup.
