Although they originated in Detroit, the Spinners epitomized sleek Philly soul during the 1970s after signing with Atlantic and getting together with Philadelphia producer/writer Thom Bell. Led by the late Phillipe Wynne's distinctive falsetto, the Spinners launched a slew of dazzling hits that scurried to the top of the charts, including "I'll Be Around," "Could It Be I'm Falling in Love," "One of a Kind Love Affair," "The Games People Play," and "Rubberband Man." It's been decades since the Spinners had a hit, but they're still looking and sounding sharp, evoking a potent era with original members Henry Fambrough and Bobbie Smith anchoring the quintet.
