In the 1970s, The Spinners were one of hottest vocal groups in the industry. With the assistance of producer Thom Bell, the quintet scored hit after hit, and delivered some of the most elegant Philadelphia soul albums of the time, albums that are still revered by soul music fans more than four decades later. While illness and sad deaths of members have left the group with only one original member, Henry Fambrough, The Spinners have soldiered on in concert with a lineup that includes Jessie Peck, Marvin Taylor, Ronnie Moss and CJ Jefferson. And they surprised fans with the release of their new album, “Round The Block And Back Again.” While most of the songs are new compositions written or co-written by producer Preston Glass, the quintet also takes on the doo wop classic “So Much In Love.” “So Much In Love” was a George Williams/Bill Jackson composition that the Tymes took to the top of the charts in 1963. It has been remade a dozen times over the years, most notably by All 4 One, who took it back to the top in 1993. Now The Spinners make the song upbeat, delivering impeccable harmonies underneath a light dance pacing. This is a nice up date of a classic, and a good look for the current version of The Spinners, who sound fantastic together. Listen to “So Much In Love” below.
