Timeless in a way that few other acts today are, The Spinners are one of the most iconic and enduring groups in R&B history. With a towering legacy spanning over six decades, The Spinners have never lost their universal appeal… and this past Summer, they returned with their first all-new original album in nearly 40 years, the aptly titled, Round the Block and Back Again.

The band both created and came to define the singularly smooth sound of Philadelphia Soul, channeling the highs and lows of romance and heartbreak into a catalogue of classic hits, beloved across generations. Throughout the years The Spinners have topped both the Pop and R&B charts with smash singles like, “I’ll Be Around,” “Could It Be I’m Falling In Love,” “Then Came You,” “The Rubberband Man” and many more – earning six Grammy nominations, a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and selling millions of records worldwide in the process.

Though The Spinners popularized, and came to embody, the lush sound of Philly Soul in the 70s, they got their start in Detroit at Motown in 1954. After a brief time there, The Spinners signed with Atlantic Records in 1972, teaming up with producer Thom Bell in Philadelphia, where the band blossomed under his masterful watch.

In 1979 The Spinners completed their first collaboration with producer Michael Zager, and by early 1980 the single “Working My Way Back to You,” was topping Pop and R&B charts giving the group its 12th gold record. The Love Trippin’ album’s release included “The Cupid Medley,” one of the fastest-selling records in The Spinners’ career. The follow-up album, Labor of Love, featured such stand out tunes as “Yesterday Once More,” and “Long Live Soul Music.”

Four decades later, The Spinners haven’t skipped a single beat, as the new release Round the Block and Back Again makes clear.
