I'm trying to ascertain who sang "The Rubberband Man" in the 80s. It was a female singer. Apparently the song was originally done by the Spinners. Any ideas? Thanks.

Artist - Tamera Sylvera

Go to Sounds / Full Air Checks / 1986 Spring at this site to hear it.

The original was in fact by the Spinners, but the version played on CFNY was by Tamara Silvera. I featured it in June of 2002, you can read more about it here:

Rubberband Man was also covered by Yusef N'dor (Peter Gabrial's friend--both did that song Shaking the Tree). Linda Carter (Wonder Woman) did a version on TV.

Kate Bush did Rubberband Girl that was played on 'NY

Where oh where can I hear Rubberband Man by Tamara Silvera. Amazing track. I have the 12' but no turntable and haven't heard it in 15 years ...
