The Spinners (1) (Pittsburgh, CA)
Lawrence Brice (Lead)
Gilbert Joseph (Baritone)
1958 - My Love And Your Love / Marvella (Rhythm 125)
These Spinners were not the famous detroit Spinners, but rather the west coast Pittsburg, CA (SF/Oakland) group, as played on KDIA. It was Rhythm Records "The Boss in the Bay" #125, it was an Oakland label owned by college basketball hall of famer and legendary KDIA-AM (the "choice voice of the Bay")(Lucky 13....1310 on the dial) Don Barksdale.
As a business entrepreneur, Barksdale established an advertising agency and a beer distributorship (Blue & Gold Beer, the first black-owned enterprise of its kind in the Bay Area), a record label (Rhythm Records) and two popular Oakland nightspots, The Sportsman and The Showcase.
Spinners' members included Lawrence Brice, Gilbert Joseph (baritone), Robert Thomas, and Maurice Allen. Co-writers were Brice and Joseph.
They became one hit wonders with the Doo Wop song 'My Love And Your Love'.
My Love And Your Love Marvella
