Detroit Spinners – The Artist

The Detroit Spinners are an American rhythm and blues vocal group that formed in Ferndale, Michigan, in 1954. The group is also listed as the Spinners and the Motown Spinners, due to their 1960s recordings with the Motown label. These other names were used in the UK to avoid confusion with a British folk group also called The Spinners. In 1954, Billy Henderson, Henry Fambrough, Pervis Jackson, C. P. Spencer, and James Edwards formed The Domingoes in Ferndale, Michigan, a northern suburb of Detroit. James Edwards remained with the group for a few weeks and was replaced by Bobby Smith, who sang lead on most of the Spinners’ early records and their biggest Atlantic Records hits. Spencer left the group shortly after Edwards, and later joined the Voice Masters and the Originals. George Dixon replaced Spencer, and the group renamed themselves the Detroit Spinners in 1961.They enjoyed a string of hit singles and albums during the 1960s and 1970s, particularly with producer Thom Bell. The group continues to tour, with Henry Fambrough as the only original member.

Working My Way Back To You – The Song

‘Working My Way Back To You’ is a song by the American rhythm and blues vocal group, the Detroit Spinners. The song was written by Sandy Linzer and Denny Randell and originally recorded by The Four Seasons in 1966. The lyrics tell about a man who cheated on his girlfriend and also emotionally abused her. When she leaves, he realizes that he did love her and is very remorseful about his past actions. He vows to win her love back.

The Men at Work Sign – The Shape

Modelled into a silhouette of a man shovelling dirt or digging a hole similar to the roadside warning sign. The design is inspired by the shovelling dance move the band perform while singing the song. According to the Highway Code a ‘men at work’ sign is a warning sign. Men at work signs indicate that road workers are in or near the roadway. Drivers should be alert and prepared to slow down or stop if they encounter this sign. Oftentimes the men at work signs are posted in construction zones where speed limits are reduced.
