About this item

What's left to say about this sublime slice of disco soul that hasn't been said  before?
Lamont Dozier was part of the legendary Motown songwriting team Holland/Dozier/Holland who wrote (amongst many MANY others) 'Heatwave'; 'Where Did Our Love Go'; 'Baby Love' and 'Nowhere To Run'.
'Back To My Roots' came out in 1977 and features one of, if not THE, greatest piano intros of all time. Covered by Odyssey, Richie Havens and FPI project, it's probably one of my all time favourite records, it's impossible to hear it and keep still.
So, if by some chance you've spent the last forty years as a prisoner in a Vietnamese pow camp and never heard this (original) version all I can say is I envy you (not the Vietnamese pow camp, obviously) I'd love to be hearing this record for the first time.
Oh and no biggie, some guy called Danny Krivit has done a remix on the B side...
