SoulTracks Lost Gem: The rare "Memories of Allison" by The Spinners

After years of languishing at Motown, in the 1970s, the Spinners became one of the biggest acts in the world. Read full biography

The group went on to release a decade's worth of hits, but by the late 80s, the Spinners were pretty much forgotten by radio. So a beautiful ballad issued by them in 1989 on the album Down To Business was downright ignored, and that's too bad. "Memories of Allison" displays some terrific harmonies in a haunting song. Check it out below and tell us what you think.
