Gouge?

>I usually hang out on the hand tools forum but have a question on turning. I have bought a new lathe and want to buy some new turning tools. It may sound dumb to you experienced turners but what is the difference bewteen a detail gouge and a spindle gouge. Is there a difference and if so do I need both? Also what steel do you prefer?
