I'LL BE AROUND * THE SPINNERS * ATLANTIC 2904 * USA
Beautiful Soul ballad with a haunting and desolate feel, throughout the song the singer is trying to be optimistic in the face of tragedy yet a fatalistic air seems to permeate every line. Written by Thom Bell and Phil Hurtt, and produced, arranged and conducted by Thom Bell, it beggars belief that this mighty song was issued as a B side! As good as this song and it's production is, there is, however, a version I like even more but, unfortunately I only have it on album, fans of Studio 1 will know that I'm referring to the magnificent Otis Gale version, oh.
