Notes

Tracks 1-11 to 1-14 were recorded January 14-25, 1972 at Pac-Three Studios in Dearborn, Michigan, produced by Jimmy Roach; Track 1-11 remained unissued until 1991 when it was included on "One OF A Kind Love Affair (The Anthology)" (Atlantic 2CD set, 7 8282332-2); while tracks 1-12, 1-13 & 1-14 were unissued until included on the 1995 Rhino Remasters CD reissue of "Mighty Love" (R2 71586). Though these tracks were not produced by Thom Bell, we have included them due to their historical significance as The Spinners' first recordings for Atlantic Records.

Made In The EU

Presented in a clamshell box with 7 CDs in individual sleeves.

Includes a 28 page booklet with an essay by The Second Disc’s Joe Marchese drawing on new and previously unpublished quotes from Spinners’ Henry Fambrough, road manager Steve Allen, Atlantic Records Artist Relations Director Barbara J. Harris, and the late Thom Bell.

    A superb comprehensive collection of the classic Thom Bell era. The Spinners were one of the top soul acts o the 70s and early 80s. This 7 disc box set includes all the Thom Bell sessions and additional single/12 inch mixes. Excellent quality.
