Thread Name: What ever happened to the Spinners ?
Subject: RE: What ever happened to the Spinners ?
I was delighted, to find this. I have listened to The Spinners, for years. I suppose in many ways, they were an English style version, of Irish folk groups such as The Clancy's and The Dubliners. Their music, was very popular here in Ireland. While they recorded a lot of albums, the albums are nearly impossible to get now. We are told that they sold the rights of all their material, when they retired. It was bought by an American company. Because of this, you simply can't get Spinners material on c.d. It has to come from America, and the buyer must be prepared to pay big sums of money for it. Because of this, I feel they are badly remembered. I hope that their c.d's, might yet become available here in Ireland.
