Subject: RE: Obit: Tony Davis ex Spinners (1930-2017)
The Spinners were a big influence on me when I first became interested in folk music, but I'm now ashamed to say I rather looked down on them once I'd moved on the more hard-core stuff. It was only later that I again began to appreciate their musicianship and rapport with their audience. They made it all look too easy.
Like most folkies of that era, I owe them a massive debt of gratitude. RIP and thanks for the music.
