Mastered from the Original Master Tapes: Mobile Fidelity 180g LP Presents Groundbreaking Soul Album With Pristine Detail, Soothing Warmth, and Involving Emotionalism Sweeping Strings, Funk Rhythms, Brassy Rejoinders, Immaculate Harmonies, and Satiny Lead Singing Fill Thom Bell's Melodic Arrangements: Few Albums Sound Creamier Than This Watershed Effort. The timeless music and expert arrangements are about the only things smoother than the powder-blue suits sported by The Spinners on the cover of their resplendent self-titled 1972 record.
The band's first album for Atlantic after departing Motown, Spinners ranks as an all-time soul classic - a filler-free set boasting immaculate harmonies, sweet melodies, and impeccably matched vocals. Thom Bell's flawless production puts it all over the top. Yielding an ideal balance of lushness and grit, the collaboration between the Detroit-based group and studio veteran yielded a record that birthed the celebrated Philadelphia Sound. Now, you can finally experience it in audiophile-grade sonics.
Mastered from the original tapes and pressed at RTI, Mobile Fidelity's numbered limited-edition 180g LP of Spinners presents the quintet's magnum opus with pristine detail, soothing warmth, and involving emotionalism. Free of previously constraining ceilings, highs soar to their intended heights.
Each singer's voice can be distinctly heard amidst the expert mix. Superb dynamics, soundstaging, and imaging highlight Bell's gorgeous orchestrations as well as The Spinners' pillow-soft mellifluousness. Backing instrumentation, ranging from rolling bass lines and punctual horns to swaying strings and crisp high-hat beats, unfolds with reference-caliber purity and transparency. Not many 1970s albums of any genre sound silkier, creamier, or more tonally rich than this LP.
