Tonight I’ll be exploring the songbook of Eddie Holland, Brian Holland and Lamont Dozier. The team of Holland, Dozier and Holland – it sounds like a law firm – played a large part in the success of Berry Gordy’s Motown empire back in the days of Detroit as a viable city. Life inside Gordy’s world, known as “Hitsville USA”, was ruthlessly competitive, as producers and songwriters were constantly vying for success, lest Gordy replace them in his favor with a more successful team. The team of H-D-H, as they were known in-house, defined the Motown sound of the Sixties.

In many ways, Gordy was the Paul Whiteman of his era, although he would have bridled at the suggestion. Just as Whiteman had “made a lady out of jazz” in the Twenties, Gordy came up with a black sound that was quick, nervous – and rather white. His acts were all required to go to Motown’s etiquette school so as to learn which fork to use, how to dress and how to express themselves in a ladylike and gentlemanly manner. An old friend of mine, still in radio and working at an oldies station in Tulsa, said about Motown’s sound in the Sixties, “It’s not considered black music; it’s white.” White or not, it made fortunes for a lot of musical entrepreneurs in Detroit. The harsh discipline of Hitsville USA forced people to succeed.

In the early years, Berry Gordy had trouble settling on a basic sound. Eddie Holland had worked with Gordy back when Gordy was producing him at Mercury Records. In 1961, Eddie had his first minor hit for Motown – which he didn’t write. In this recording, Eddie sounds like Clyde McPhatter, and the basic sound is very much “Brill Building”.

Eddie Holland: “Jamie”

Eddie’s brother Brian Holland was a staff songwriter from the very beginning of Motown, and he had his first success in 1961 too. That’s Marvin Gaye on drums.

The Marvelettes: “Please Mr. Postman”

Lamont Dozier had been around for years, recording for different labels but not registering a hit.

It was in 1963 that H-D-H had their first entry on the charts, featuring Eddie Holland on vocals. It’s pretty good, and it gives a clear indication of how the H-D-H sound would evolve over time. It’s quick, nervous and very catchy.

Eddie Holland: “Leaving Here”

Martha Reeves had a fine set of alto pipes, much more robust than the thin, reedy soprano of Diana Ross. In 1963, Holland, Dozier and Holland came up with three successful records for Reeves and her girl group. The first just missed making the Top 10. The instrumental interlude at 1:08 shows a fine touch, but the resolution at 1:40 is inspired.

Martha & the Vandellas: “Come and Get These Memories”

It took a while, but H-D-H found a groove for Martha, and that groove was flat out kick-ass dancing. If you wanted to get people jumping on the dance floor, all you had to do was put this on the turntable. (Remember turntables?) It’s not only a great up-tempo number, but it has solid lyrics and is even beautiful in places. I’ve always admired the way that H-D-H move effortlessly between C minor and E-flat. At 1:43 there is a musical technique called “deletion” where the rhythm is interrupted by a half-bar, and it propels the song into the brilliant resolution at 2:03. These guys knew what they were doing.

Martha & the Vandellas: “Heat Wave”

The H-D-H team had the annoying trend of milking an idea for everything they could before moving on to a new one. It was to add a degree of sameness to some of the acts that came later, but in this situation, the dancing groove they created for Martha Reeves worked out well. That drum riff at 2:03 is inspired.

Martha & the Vandellas: “Quicksand”

It was somewhat productive, but nothing to write home about. I've been a little under the weather for the last week or so - feel better today. No work this weekend - I should be able to get the planting done and a few things around the house. My son John did some heavy pruning in the front garden last night - we cut the Yellow Banksian Rose almost to the ground. A lot of old wood - stems over two inches thick. It should generate some new stems in short order.
