Soul Asylum is an indie band formed in 1983, perhaps best known for their song "Runaway Train". Also, The Spinners are known in England as The Detroit Spinners or The Motown Spinners because a Liverpool based folk band had taken the name in Britain during the 1960s. Close (1999). In their recently released box set The Chrome Collection, The Spinners were lauded by David Bowie and Elvis Costello. I Will Still Be Laughing (1998). They are big draws on the oldies and nostalgia concert circuits, and continue to play the music that made them famous. Promises Broken (1996). Even though their last hits were over 20 years ago, the bright lights of their 1972-1976 run of the charts continues to provide for the current members.

String Of Pearls (1995). The Spinners appeared on the charts only twice more, both in 1980. Misery (1995). When Wynne left the group in 1977, the hits dried up. Can't Even Tell (1994). This turned out to be a precursor to disco, the dance music fad that came several years later. Insomniac's Dream (1994). The Detroit band's popularity was contributed to by their producer, Thom Bell, who was beginning to be recognized for his trademark Philly soul or "Philadelphia Sound".

Runaway Train (1993). With songs like "I'll Be Around", "Sadie", "Could It Be I'm Falling In Love", "Rubberband Man", "One Of A Kind (Love Affair)", and "Then Came You", The Spinners had cemented their place in pop music history. Somebody To Shove (1993). The Spinners began a climb up the charts that put 11 songs in the Top 40 pop charts between 1972 and 1976. All The King's Friends (1991). They did not achieve another commercial hit until singer Philippe Wynne joined the group, and (as legend has it) Aretha Franklin suggested the group finish out their Motown contract, and change to Atlantic Records. We 3 (1991). Success mostly eluded them until 1970, when they had a hit with Stevie Wonder's composition, "It's A Shame".

Spinnin (1990). They also signed to Berry Gordy's Motown label, based in Detroit. Easy Street (1990). The Spinners first hit the charts in 1961, with "That's What Girls Are Made For." In 1964, they made their debut at the Apollo Theater and won instant acclaim, a rare feat at the time. Cartoon (1989). Dixon was the first to go. Beggars And Choosers (1989). Dixon, and Bobbie Smith called themselves the Domingoes. Early on, The Spinners established a pattern of rapidly going through lead singers.

Sometime To Return (1989). Billy Henderson, Henry Fambrough, Pervis Jackson, George W. Black Gold: The Best of Soul Asylum (2000). A group of friends in a Detroit, Michigan high school in 1957 came together to make music. Candy From a Stranger (1998). The band still tours as of 2004. Let Your Dim Light Shine (1995).
