The Original Spinners (released in the UK as The Detroit Spinners) is the 1967 debut album by The Spinners for Motown Records. The LP includes the group's earliest singles on the label (such as Top 20 R&B hits "I'll Always Love You" and "Truly Yours"), as well as their first ever single "That's What Girls Are Made For" (which was released on the already defunct Tri-Phi Record label). None of the group's other material from Tri-Phi appear on this album.
The lineup on the cover features Bobby Smith, Edgar "Chico" Edwards, Henry Fambrough, Billy Henderson, and Pervis Jackson. Former member George Dixon (who is not pictured on the album because of his departure back in 1963) actually only appears on "That's What Girls Are Made For", The other tracks all feature Edwards. This is both Dixon's and Edwards' only appearance on an Spinners studio album (Edwards would leave the group soon after this production of this album was completed).
The album notes state that members Bobby Smith and Edgar "Chico" Edwards shares most of the lead vocals on stage. However other than "Tomorrow May Never Come", where he does the lead vocal in unison with Smith (who also leads all the remaining tracks on this album) and Henry Fambrough, Edwards does not have any other leads on this album.
