Lamont Dozier* – Why can’t we be lovers?


Lamont Dozier is Motown royalty. However, it wasn’t until this week that I knew it was as a singer and not just as part of the incredible and prolific Holland-Dozier-Holland song writing trio.

This is so fresh, it has been a while since I have been so moved by a soul artist I hadn’t heard before. I tend to judge a song by how many times I am compelled to listen to it in succession after first hearing it. On that scale this scored pretty high (I am still counting). 

Ooh baby, why can’t be lovers? Oh darling, from loving you I’ll never recover…
