Lamont Dozier enlisted Grade A L.A. musicians, including fellow Motown alumnus, bassist James Jamerson, for his 1976 Warner Bros. debut, Right There — an engaging set of soul and pop music. The first single, the smooth ballad “Can’t Get Off Until the Feeling Stops,” was in the vein of his earlier hit, “”Let Me Start Tonite.” Dozier vocally milks the smooth-as-molasses groovers: “Groovin’ on a Natural High,” “With a Little Bit of Mending (We Could Be as Good as New),” “Joy,” “Ain’t Never Loved Nobody (Like I Love You),” “Wild Frame of Mind,” and “Good Eye.” The singer/songwriter/producer reworks The Four Tops’ “It’s the Same Old Song,” giving it a restrained, classical sheen through the use of a prominent string section. Right There runs a very close second to being Dozier’s best, and most consistent LP, but that distinction belongs to Working On You.
