I have several...
In my list the tandem Brian Holland-Lamont Dozier head the list because it's incredible the quantity of quality records by so many artists that they produced.
Then, Norman Whitfield. I was tempted to place him first.
Ashford & Simpson.
William "Mickey" Stevenson.
Henry "Hank" Cosby.
Non-Motown: Arif Mardin-Jerry Whexler-Tom Dowd, Thom Bell, Richard Perry, Skip Scarborough, Eugene Record...

Eli, what about Gamble and Huff? I think they were great. I'm wondering why you left them off your list. An oversight?
