1973 was a magical year for The Spinners. It was captured on tape by legendary producer Thom Bell in the way of ten extraordinary soul masterpieces that make up their debut Atlantic Records album simply titled Spinners. The love affair with radio and retail began as dee-jays flipped to the b-side of their first masterful single How Could I Let You Get Away and it blew up into their first number one smash I’ll Be Around. Featuring the vocal power of their super-talented co-founder Bobby Smith, The Spinners soon enjoyed the accolades and success that they had so painstakingly worked towards for over a decade. The success of this major soul and pop classic forced the executives at Atlantic to get more tunes to the people in a hurry, and Thom Bell and The Spinners nailed down what would become their debut multi-platinum smash Spinners. How do you follow up a smash number one record? How about with two more number ones! Could It Be I’m Falling In Love would be another of their many many classic hits. It didn’t take long for the world to figure out that the Spinners were here to stay. This melodic r&b dance track had it all going on for it. If you listen to the opening drum roll by Earl Young (The Trammps) and then the vibes of Vince Montana, and keyboards by Thom Bell, then the voice of Bobby Smith and The Spinners.....it’s just magic! The more important aspect of this song is that it ushered in the vocal prowess of the late great Philippe “Soul” Wynne with his trademark adlib and scat at the end of the song, which would become a career boost once again for this Detroit quintet. Number One Hit Part Three developed in the form of Philippe’s own first time lead on the very soulful One Of A Kind (Love Affair). This shot the album into the upper rungs of the soul and pop charts and of course continued the launch of probably one of the most successful r&b/pop music acts of all time.
