Spinners' silky smooth 1972 self-titled record birthed the Philadelphia Soul Sound

Includes Top 5 hits "I'll Be Around" and "Could It Be I'm Falling In Love"

Spinners is the third studio album recorded by American R&B group The Spinners, produced by Thom Bell and released in April 1973 on the Atlantic label. The album was the group's first for Atlantic after leaving Motown.

Spinners ranks as an all-time soul classic. It includes their first American Top 10 and R&B number-one hit "I'll Be Around", along with the successful songs "Could It Be I'm Falling in Love", "One of a Kind (Love Affair)", "Ghetto Child", and "How Could I Let You Get Away." The album was also the second of 14 straight studio albums to make the Billboard 200, and their first in the Top 20, as it reached No. 14 on the charts. Additionally, it was their first of three consecutive R&B albums chart-toppers — and the second to hit those charts overall.

Thom Bell created a sound for the group that was "lush" yet gritty. Bell's insistently soulful orchestral arrangements played perfectly to their harmonic strengths. "Could It Be I'm Falling In Love" (later a hit for David Grant and Jaki Graham) is the keynote; sung by Smith, it is beautiful, optimistic and upbeat. Often cited as the birth of the Philadelphia Sound, Spinners yielded five American Top 100 hits, and two U.K. chart successes.

Such a classic early 70s soul album. The album has some of their best ever hits. A very solid upgrade over all my digital files of The Spinners. The music has a lot more dimension and depth than other versions of this album. Very solid but tight bass. Amazed this album hasn’t attracted more attention. Another great mastering job from Krieg Wunderlich and the folks over at MFSL.
