    Twilighters on Spin It 0202 was reviewed in Billboard in 1950.

    Thanks for all your interest and the nice complement.

    [Edit: link no longer active](www.soulsides.co.uk/detroit/Spin) supplies information about the Spin label and also lists the Spin-It release as 020.2 at the end.

    Billboard (April 18 1960) does review Spin 000.1. I’d really appreciate if you would supply the link to the Billboard issue reviewing Spin It 0202 (Helene/Tantalizing Darling).
