Biography

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. 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. Between 1972 and 1977, the Spinners and Bell recorded a number of soul classics, including ‘I’ll Be Around,’ ‘Could It Be I’m Fallin in Love,’ ‘Mighty Love,’ ‘Ghetto Child,’ ‘Then Came You,’ ‘Games People Play,’ and ‘The Rubberband Man.’ Originally, called the Domingoes, the Spinners formed when the quintet were high school students in the Detroit suburb of Ferndale in 1957.

EXPAND FULL BIO

The band’s first single, ‘That’s What Girls Are Made For,’ became a Top Ten R&B hit upon its 1961 release. Though the Spinners had some R&B hits at Motown during the late ’60s, including ‘I’ll Always Love You’ and ‘Truly Yours,’ they didn’t have a genuine crossover success until 1970, when Stevie Wonder gave the group ‘It’s a Shame.’ Motown never concentrated on the Spinners, and they let the group go in 1972.Once the group signed with Atlantic, they became a veritable hit machine, topping the R&B and pop charts with songs like ‘I’ll Be Around,’ ‘Could It Be I’m Falling in Love,’ ‘One of a Kind (Love Affair),’ ‘Ghetto Child,’ ‘Rubberband Man,’ and ‘You’re Throwing a Good Love Away.’ Not only were their singles hits, but their albums constantly went gold and charted in the Top 20. The Spinners, meanwhile, had a number of minor hits in the late ’70s, highlighted by their disco covers of ‘Working My Way Back to You’ and the medley ‘Cupid/I’ve Loved You for a Long Time.’
