Formed in the 1950s, the Detroit Spinners career didn t take off until they left Motown and joined Atlantic Records in 1971 where they joined forces with Philly songwriter/ producer Thom Bell. Under Bell s direction, they racked up a slew of memorable chart hits throughout the 70s, including I ll Be Around, Could It Be I m Falling In Love, and Ghetto Child. This sterling 2-CD retrospective features all of the Detroit quintet s significant Atlantic recordings and big US and UK chart smashes.

For years I have wanted the wonderful "Love Is in Season" on CD and finally here it is. The album it comes from "Crossfire" has not received a CD release and because the single wasn't a hit, it doesn't appear on compilations. So that was reason enough to buy this and it sounds awesome on CD, better than my well-played 12" single.
So what about the rest? This is a very good overview of the Detroit Spinners UK and U.S. singles from the Atlantic record label (1972 onwards), focussing mostly on the 7" single versions and is the first time a more comprehensive collection has been put together covering 2 discs. There are some singles missing here, but nothing vital. All the main singles are here, a few album tracks and some great B-Sides like the B-Side of "Working My Way Back To You"; "Disco Ride", which was actually the A-Side in America and is here in its full 6:23 version.
There can't be many people who don't know the classics "Could It be I'm Falling In Love (later a hit for David Grant & Jaki Graham)" and "I'll Be Around (later a hit for Terri Wells) and "Are You Ready For Love" will be instantly familiar due to Elton John's number one hit version.Read more ›
