Born Dwight Turner in 1947 in Beckley, WV, 'Spyder' grew up in Detroit, MI. As a teenager, Turner sang in doo wop groups and in glee clubs. In 1966, record producer Clay McMurray had Turner's group do a recording session, and soon after Turner signed to MGM Records and released a single, a cover of the soul number "Stand by Me," imitating not only Ben E. King, but Smokey Robinson, Chuck Jackson and Billy Stewart, among others. The tune climbed to #3 on the U.S. Billboard Black Singles chart and #12 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart early in 1967. Yes, I do have a R&B & Soul side too. #SpyderTurner #R&B #SoulMusic   8
