Promo label scans uploaded. A delicious slice of Philly-Soul.
Thom Bell's usual writing partner, Linda Creed was out of town, so Thom tracked down a songwriter he had gone to high school with named, Phil Hurtt (his surname is spelt incorrectly on the promo), who agreed to compose the words.
The musicians on I'll Be Around were the Sigma Sound Studios house band, MFSB: Norman Harris on guitar, Ronnie Baker on bass and Earl Young on drums.
Finally got my scanner working again. Here are the scans of my 'Spinners' copy. The matrix numbers in the run-out are K10243A1 and K10243B1 respectively, matching the labels. This was bought in UK at time of release.
