From the Land of Band Box Records

HDH Music Inc.

They were known as HDH in Detroit. They were brothers Eddie and Brian Holland and Lamont Dozier. From 1962 until 1968 they laid down the “Sound of Young America” – or the  quintessential “Motown Sound”.  From Brian Holland’s debut with Motown outing with “Please Mr. Postman” by the Marvelettes in 1962 (#1) to their last “Forever Came Today” by the Supremes in 1968 – and far beyond with their work at the Hot Wax and Invictus record labels – they leave an enduring legacy to be enjoyed for all time.

The Holland Dozier & Holland Hit Tally:

180 songs entering the Hot 100 (or “Bubbling Under”)

97 songs entering other charts (R&B – Country – Adult Contemporary or the U.K.)

277 total chart songs

61 songs entered Billboard Top 20

44 songs entered Billboard Top 10

15 songs achieved Billboard’s #1 position
