    I believe Lamont was going through a divorce at the time of both "Out Here" and "Black Bach". Not sure if Scherrie was his wife or not, but I know the contents are about a failed marriage. Being a...

    Yessir. One of the songs Lamont prepared about a year before he defected from The Hollands. "Out Here On My Own" and "Black Bach" are both great examples of the creative chemistry that existed...

    Very good observation Brad. I think the Tops version could've benefitted from a re-cut as far as the track is concerned. Maybe Quality Control suggested one, but didn't want to fight with Ivy &...

    There is an alternate version that I believe wasn't released at the time about the " Black Bottom Roughouser" bird that someone had seen on the airplane.

    My guess is that it didn't hit the public like some other records. The market is and always has been unpredictable, but there's something for everyone. The people that liked the record enough bought...

    I would say it was all in the matter of the producer and the engineer keeping the tape running. Usually they would only keep two takes of a vocal performance, the master take and an alternate. They...

    Great song. The "Bondage" album is an underrated classic. I tie him to Invictus/ Hot Wax more so than Motown even though he wrote some good stuff there too. Stellar works from Angelo and the great...

    Never made a duet, but Smokey did give "Just My Daydream" to her so I guess that picks up the slack somewhat.

    They only did one duet as far as I know. I discovered somewhere that around the time that "Warm Thoughts" was released Smokey was working on a full album with Claudette. About Ten years ago I asked...

    It was Berry Gordy's fault though. He thought that if he gave them superior positions within the company then he wouldn't have to let them in on the real wealth that the company was acquiring. Paying...

    As HDH was planning to leave Motown, Smokey tried to convince Brian Holland to stay and let Eddie Holland and Lamont Dozier go. This was a shortsighted effort to salvage...

    Yes,I couldn't agree more. This tends to happen to me when I listen closely to Roger Troutman's productions. He's the master of the talkbox and was one of the greatest guitar players ever.But what's...

    I like this version too. Gladys Horton is the lead vocalist. As far as the background vocals go, I agree that the sound is a little different. Maybe Brian Holland & Lamont Dozier actually used the...

    California Sunset is one of the few great albums that Lamont produced on someone else. Who knows how it would've done commercially had Berry Gordy got behind it. Suzanne DePasse approved of this...

    G.C. Cameron: You're What's Missing In My Life in 1977. The track "Don't Tear Down What Took So Long To Build" is the standout track to me. Great James Carmichael arrangement as well as a shades of...

    Never actually listened to the "Duet" version of this tune all the way through. As I stated long ago, the mix in my opinion is less than appealing. Here's my take on events:
