Lamont Dozier became a household name as one-third of the legendary songwriting team of Holland-Dozier- Holland. His songs hit #1 more than four dozen times with such acts as The Supremes, the Four Tops, Marvin Gaye, Phil Collins and many others. These seminal hits include "Baby Love," “I Can’t Help Myself,” "How Sweet It Is (to Be Loved by You)," "Reach Out I'll Be There" and "You Can't Hurry Love," among the many.
