Happiness Is Listening To This Stuff
Andre S. Grindle | Brewer Maine | 04/27/2005
(3 out of 5 stars)

"If you want pure mid 70's Philly soul magic The Spinners are great ones for that.And certainly the funky "Rubberband Man" and "I'm Gonna Get You" are fantastic,brilliant tunes but neither of these albums are consistant.Between the two the upbeat "Wake Up Susan",the wistful "Heaven On Earth (So Fine)" are great tunes but the ultimate Spinners CD collection to get is 'One Of A Kind Love Affair'-it's packed full of great hits and album cuts from their entire 70's career.Much of the time The Spinners weren't really great album acts (say for 1979's consistantly strong 'From Here To Eternally')and these two are certainly no different.I think Philly thought of them as more of singles act and produced them as such.But these guys have wonderful voices and should've been developed in a different way at this point.If they had I think both these albums would've done alot better"
A lot of paint, no magic

"The Thom Bell magic wanes a bit on Happiness is Being w/ Spinners.The album opens with the light hearted and lyrically banal 'Now That We're Together',a showcase for Henry Fambrough who gets more lead time than usual.
The LP version of 'the Rubberband Man' is flippant and dancible,and the jazzy 'Toni My Love' is pure Philly-soul heaven.
Spinners#8 is more style than substance,and although new comer John Edwards has his way with 'Heaven On Earth(So Fine),Phillippe
Wynne's personality is greatly missed.(He went solo in 1977.)"
