The Detroit Spinners

Now for something a little less some substantial and much more jolly. ‘The Rubberband Man’ features on The (Detroit) Spinners’ 1976 album Happiness Is Being With the Spinners. Singer Philippé Wynne does a great job scatting his way through the track, helped by some clever call and response moments and those lush Philly strings. The song was written (and produced) by Thom Bell about his overweight son.
