Let's Spin! is the title of the debut album by rock band The Swirling Eddies, released in 1988 on Alarma Records.

Although the true identities of the Swirling Eddies were later revealed, it remained a complete mystery for most people at the time of this album's release. Frontline Records helped to launch the Swirling Eddies debut release with a "Guess the Eddies" contest. Fliers and magazine advertisements were distributed that included clues as to the identities of the Eddies. Contest participants were able to submit their own lists of who they thought the Eddies might be.
