Spin 1ne 2wo - Spin 1ne 2wo - 1993 - CBS/Sony

Spin 1ne 2wo, was a one-off band formed in 1993 by Rupert Hine, Phil Palmer, Paul Carrack and Tony Levine. The full band consisted of the great session guitarist, Phil Palmer (Bliss Band), Paul Carrack (of Ace, Mike and the Mechanics; vocals and keyboards), drummer Steve Ferrone (Average White Band), Rupert Hine (producer, keyboards, and member of Quantum Jump) and bassist Tony Levin (Peter Gabriel, King Crimson). The album here is a one-off album of classic rock covers including songs by Jimi Hendrix, The Who, Led Zeppelin, Blind Faith, Steely Dan and Bob Dylan. Some of the covers are a bit "lightweight" compared to the originals, but nevertheless, the musicianship by these very experienced musicians is Grade A. The band is not trying to "better" the original songs. Who could improve on songs like "Black Dog", "Angel", or "Reelin' In The Years"? However, the band do manage to bring something new to these classic songs and the great vocalist Paul Carrack is brilliant on lead vocals and Hammond B3. "Spin 1ne 2wo" is HR by A.O.O.F.C. The following albums are just some of the recordings by and featuring members of Spin 1ne 2wo; Rupert Hine's "Pick Up A Bone", Paul Carrack's "Live In Liverpool", Tony Levin's "Waters Of Eden", Bliss Band's "Dinner With Raoul" feat. Phil Palmer, and the Average White Band's "Cut The Cake" feat. Steve Ferrone

Philip 'Phil' John Palmer (born 9 September 1952, London, England) is a sideman and session guitarist in jazz and rock who has toured, recorded, and worked with numerous famous artists. He is most renowned for his great slide guitar technique. He has supported and toured with artists including Wishbone Ash, Joan Armatrading, Eric Clapton, Roger Daltrey, Dire Straits, Bob Dylan, Tina Turner, Pete Townshend, Johnny Hallyday, David Knopfler, and David Sylvian. In 1986, he was a session musician on Alphaville's "Afternoons in Utopia" album . He was the musical director of and performed with The Strat Pack at the 50th anniversary celebration of the Fender Stratocaster held at the Wembley Arena in London in 2004. Phil also plays with a side project called Blue Tuesday. Ray and Dave Davies of The Kinks are uncles of his.


In among his ongoing work with Mike + the Mechanics and a brief return to Squeeze in 1993, vocalist Paul Carrack took time out to revive an art form truly lost in the 1980s, when he formed the de facto "supergroup" Spin One Two. With a lineup completed by bassist Tony Levin (Peter Gabriel, King Crimson), drummer Steve Ferrone (Average White Band), session guitarist Phil Palmer, and producer Rupert Hine, Spin One Two sank their teeth into a beefy set of classic rock covers and, generally, caught the flavor of them all. A freshly laundered list of rock's who's who, the songs on Spin 1ne 2wo unfold like a blueprint to all the things that really mattered back in the day. From Bob Dylan's iconic "All Along the Watchtower" to Led Zeppelin's behemoth "Kashmir" and Cream's stately "White Room," the bandmembers obviously enjoy letting rip on songs they might only have jammed on in the past. Rounding up the set is a slab-worthy take on Bad Company's "Feel Like Making Love" and an oddball rendering of "You Keep Me Hanging On," slowed down à la the Vanilla Fudge's definitive retread, but laced with a savage extra burst of prog guitar. It's an interesting set -- eclectic and obviously chosen for the sheer love of the songs. If there is any criticism to be made, though, it's that the originals are all so mythic and so very good that there isn't much point to any of these versions. They are good, in their way, but they aren't spectacular, leaving the whole thing to play out like a vanity project gone slightly wrong. © Dave Thompson © 2011 Rovi Corporation.
