Four decades after first spinning its mesmerizing harmonies, the Detroit quintet finally receives its true due.

Four decades after first spinning its mesmerizing harmonies, the Detroit quintet finally receives its true due. This three-CD boxed set lovingly lays out the group's extensive catalog and doubles as an R&B primer. Discovered by the Moonglows' Harvey Fuqua, the Spinners (né Domingoes) have done it all from doo-wop to dance. The ex-Motown group clicked big-time on Atlantic, teaming with Philly soulster Thom Bell and gospel-weaned singer Philippé Wynne. Divided into three distinct career periods, it's all here: hits ("It's a Shame," "Mighty Love"), classic tracks ("I Don't Want to Lose You"), rare gems ("We'll Have It Made") and tributes (David Bowie, Dionne Warwick). One of a kind, indeed.—GM
