A Tamla Motown Collection – Part 14

The Detroit Spinners – Sweet Thing – TMG 514

This May 1965 release saw the UK Tamla Motown debut for the group known simply as The Spinners in the USA, but in order to reduce confusion with the UK folk group of the same name, EMI (Tamla Motown’s UK distributor, re-christened them the Detroit Spinners.

The trademark Motown Sound is present, with the Funk Brothers providing their usual solid instrumental support for another single that should perhaps have been a bigger hit at the time and should be a bit better known now.
