When discussing Motownís best producers first, foremost and undeniably is HDH

Second seems to be Norman Whitfield (and no offense to Norman who has a ton of stone cold classics to his name but itís a distant second)

Whoís third?

Iím going to disqualify artists who mostly produced themselves

So that counts out Stevie & Marvin

Iím tempted to count out Smokey but he definitely produced a lot for other others and My Girl alone rates consideration

So after HDH and Whitfield who would you say was the next best writer/producer?
