Thread Name: What ever happened to the Spinners ?
Subject: RE: Origins: What ever happened to the Spinners ?
As I've said earlier in this thread. I have Micks recent solo album of Ewan Mcoll songs. The accompianment is plain simple Spinners style guitar playing with some string bass an a few bits of fiddle and other instruments. Very uncluttered and to the point. The songs and the vocal performance are just fine and any more sophisticated musical approach would in my opinion be wholly unnecessairy and even detrimental. I enjoy the musical sophistication of many younger folk musicians but feel there is often a case for direct simplicity. No one expected these guys to be virtuoso musicians but they got it across to a lot of folks over the years.
