Singer/songwriter/producer Lamont Dozier was part of the legendary Motown production team of Holland-Dozier-Holland. A galvanizing force in the '60s pop and R&B chart-dominance of the Detroit-based independent record label, the trio later formed Invictus and Hot Wax Records, and enjoyed gold-record-laced success with the Chairmen of the Board, Freda Payne, 100 Proof Aged in Soul, the Honey Cone, and 8th Day.

For some reason P-Vine Records subtitled this "The New Lamont Dozier Album," a misleading title since these tracks were first released on Invictus Records as by Holland & Dozier. Dozier doesn't even lead "Slipping Away" – Holland does, but the best tracks, "Why Can't We Be Lovers" and "New Breed Kinda Woman," are classic Dozier. Though he later had a few hits on ABC Records, Dozier recorded his most accessible music while at Invictus under the artistry of Holland & Dozier; Eddie Holland, strangely, never sung with the duo, despite having some acclaim as a solo artist before these '70s recordings.

One-third of the unstoppable powerhouse team that steamrolled the music charts for the better portion of a decade, Lamont Dozier originally started out as an artist in several local Detroit groups before Barry Gordy recruited him for Motown. After non-stop writing and production for the label, Dozier left Motown and immediately rejuvenated his personal music endeavors as a solo artist. And while he will always be better known for his production efforts, Dozier had several gems in his own right and Soul Man compiles his finest moments. This is a thorough enough introduction to the man without diving into filler or less than stellar moments within his career. Casual listeners will find this a worthwhile purchase as well as a perfect supplement to Castle's equally brilliant Why Can't We Be Lovers: The Invictus Sessions release.

8th Day were a studio-based congregation on Invictus Records: the post-Motown label from Holland/Dozier/Holland. There wasn't an official group lineup, and the musicians and singers in 8th Day were featured in other Invictus/Hot Wax groups – most notably in 100 Proof (Aged In Soul) – but sweating over the details of who did what and who was where misses the point of the Invictus sound: the sound and the songs took prominence over group membership, and why not? The team at Invictus was tremendous, creating big, "Wall of Sound" productions that were nevertheless nimble, stylish, and lush: a perfect expansion of the Motown aesthetic for the post-psychedelic, smooth, soul era.

Freda Payne was a onetime flagship of Invictus, the label established by Motown mutineers Holland-Dozier-Holland. Though she only made three albums with the former Detroit hit machine, it was through the first two singles both artist and label became instantly known. Parting with Motown proved the right decision for HDH in their search for more creative recognition. Through Payne's "Unhooked Generation" and " "Band of Gold" they nurtured a newfound soul style. Combining the infectious rhythmic base of their earlier efforts with the Supremes and the Four Tops, HDH ventured into a more funk-oriented approach, with a little less emphasis on the familiar orchestration.

Funk came of age in the 1970s when a term used in jazz circles for the previous two decades crossed over to the dancefloor. Our 16 slices are served up by acts ranging from Parliament -one of the genre's undisputed trendsetters, led by the irrepressible George Clinton- to Afro-rockers Osibisa and Cymande, taking in acts as diverse as girl group Honeycone and legendary 'Hustle' hitmakers The Fatback Band. Chairmen of the Board are one of five artists featured from the Invictus/Hot Wax stable, founded by the writing/production trio of Holland, Dozier and Holland. They struck out on their own after scoring hits with innumerable Motown acts; you can hear a touch of Stevie Wonder in 'Finders Keepers'. From Detroit we travel to New Jersey for our collection's title track, performed by female vocal duo Positive Force, which wrote their name in the last UK chart of the decade. If it's dance music with a heavy bass line and layered guitar, keyboard and vocals you're after, look no further - 'We Got The Funk'!
