It's amazing that one of Lamont Dozier's most satisfying LPs appeared on the miniscule, short-lived M&M Records. No, there's nothing as pointedly woeful as "Fish Ain't Bitin'," as compelling as "Why Can't We Be Lovers," or as gripping as "Trying to Hold on to My Woman," but on his previous albums, the pickings got slim once you got past those songs. Not so here; there's enough to keep you listening through all nine selections, with the standouts being "You Oughta Be in Pictures," the pulsating "The Pressure Is On," and the toe-tapping, handclapping "Shout About It."
