    Working My Way Back to You/Forgive Me Girl

    (Sandy Linzer/Denny Randell/Michael Zager)

     

    In 1979, The Spinners found themselves without a producer, and without a hit.  Michael Zager changed all that by hopping on the disco train one more time and setting the old Frankie Valli and The Four Seasons hit to a dance beat and pairing it with one of his own compositions.  The result was a mega-hit for The Spinners, going to #1 in the U.K., #2 on the Billboard pop chart, #5 in Canada, and #6 on the U.S. R&B chart.  Overall, it was the #14 song of 1980 stateside and put The Spinners back on the musical map.
