Phillipe Wynne ...one of the more overlooked r&b frontmen...he had a distinct rhythmic cadence to his vocal phrasing... almost similar to a rapper with his innate rhythmic ability to ad-lib, scat, and tapdance across the track...

Great post and very true. I think the Spinners overall are very underrated.

Classic song. Yes Wynne was a one of a kind singer;however,he doesn't lead on this song or the majority of hits the Spinners had. For years I thought Wynne sung lead on most of the songs but it was actually Bobbie Smith who sang lead on most of the
Thom Bell-Linda Creed hits. They sound so similar you wouldn't think it's two different voices. Of course Wynne was the more flamboyant one. I remember watching some of their performances as a kid and Wynne would never stop singing after the song ended and the other members would have to pull him off the stage. lol

It was surprising that Wynne left the Spinners in 1977 to join the P-Funk camp.That seemed like a very questionable career move.P-Funk was on top at that time,but there was also alot of chaos in that organization too.Phillipe sorta got lost in the shuffle and his solo album,released in 1980,went absolutely nowhere.By that point,the Spinners were still riding high with disco-styled hits like "Working My Way Back To You" and "Cupid".I always thought that he should have stayed with the Spinners.

Yes he sure should have stayed with the Spinners but I guess he wanted more shine

and thought he could have pulled it off. I always thought Wynne and PFunk was a weird

combo. Just saw a video with Phillipe with PFunk on Youtube and the PFunk band are

dressed in their funky outfits and Phillipe still has on his Spinners suit. lol
