Spyder Turner is well loved on the northern soul scene.  He caught the eye of MGM records in 1967 and released several 45s and an LP including his big hit Stand By Me plus the popular crossover track I Can’t Make It Anymore.  Through the 70s and 80s Spyder partnered with Norman Whitfield and released 2 LPs and wrote and performed music for film soundtracks.  Having now returned to Detroit, Spyder continues to record and is still performing in the US and enthusiastic audiences.
