2 LPs on 1 CD: HAPPINESS ID BEING WITH THE SPINNERS (1976)/SPINNERS 8 (1977).
The Spinners includes: Henry Fambrough, Billy Henderson, Pervis Jackson, Bobbie Smith (vocals).
This twofer brings together a pair of Spinners' albums--1976's HAPPINESS IS BEING WITH THE SPINNERS and 1977's 8. By the late '70s the Spinners had enjoyed a fair degree of success: their take on the smooth Philly Soul sound had earned them a sizable following. Neither HAPPINESS nor 8 are standout discs, but taken together they serve up enough tasty moments to make the twofer a worthwhile purchase.
The funky "Rubberband Man," for example, is a standout cut: a dancefloor favorite that rides a serious groove while lead vocalist Phillippe Wynne does his thing. Opener "Now That We're Together" finds the group working their tried and true smooth magic. Standouts from 8, which finds Wynne replaced by John Edwards, include the rousing opener, "I'm Gonna Getcha," and the ballad "Baby I Need Your Love (You're The Only One)." Tom Bell's lush production style adorns all the tracks.
