Thread Name: What ever happened to the Spinners ?
Subject: RE: Origins: What ever happened to the Spinners ?
From an earlier post:
"IMO The Spinners were not (by and large) great musicians or singers"

I would disagree. The only time I saw them live was in Dubai, 1980, when they sang a few songs, unaccompanied, at a lunchtime session in "Wilkie's Wine bar" in the Dubai Marine Hotel, where they were staying while performing at the Country Club.

I have rarely heard anything as good as that performance, which was far better than I ever saw them do on TV.
