Brian Holland, of the Holland/Dozier/Holland Songwriting team turns 76 today

To a casual music listener, the names Holland/Dozier/Holland may not ring a bell, but if you were to look at their credits, their work speaks for itself. They racked up a few dozen Top 10 hits, largely for Motown artists (The Supremes, The Four Tops, Martha Reeves & The Vandellas, Marvin Gaye and many more) making them among the most prolific songwriters of any era. Happy Birthday to Brian Holland.
