Brian-Lamont-Eddie, 1965-1966

more Holland-Dozier-Holland

Brian, Lamont, and EddieWhen Holland–Dozier–Holland was a songwriting and production team for Motown in the 1960s, Lamont Dozier and Brian Holland were the composers and producers for each song, and Eddie Holland wrote the lyrics and arranged the vocals.
