Thread Name: What ever happened to the Spinners ?
Subject: RE: Origins: What ever happened to the Spinners ?
The Spinners did get criticised by many folkies because of their very popularity - often a problem for folk stars who cross over into the mainstream, even today. They did do a lot to popularise folk music in the 1960s and 1970s, even if they weren't to everyone's taste.
