The 7CD luxurious collection (with artwork by Roger Williams), contains expanded editions of every one of The Spinners’ studio albums produced by Thom Bell, newly remastered with stellar work by Nick Robbins and featuring bonus single versions, the non-LP side ‘Once in a Life Proposal’, the 12-inch mix of ‘If You Wanna Do a Dance’, and the full, four-song session helmed by Jimmy Roach which paved the way for the group to work with Thom Bell. Produced by David Nathan of SoulMusic Records and Joe Marchese of popular re-issue site The Second Disc, and annotated by Marchese drawing on new and unpublished interviews this is the ultimate box set tribute to the extraordinary – and extraordinarily soulful – group known the world over as The Spinners.
