The most unique comeback story of the year. Dennis Lambert was one of the most successful and diverse songwriter/producers of the '70s and '80s, with hits like "Ain't No Woman Like The One I've Got", "Rhinestone Cowboy", "Don't Pull Your Love", "Baby Come Back", "One Tin Soldier" and "Nightshift." He had chart-toppers in almost every genre of music - at one point four of his songs were simultaneously on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, a feat previously accomplished only by The Beatles. Lambert has had #1 songs in almost every genre of music.
That was then. Today, he's a 60-year-old family man selling real estate in Florida. But it turns out his obscure 1972 solo album is huge - in the Philippines. A Filipino concert promoter has been begging Dennis to tour for decades, and in 2007 (35 years after the release of his album) he finally agreed. "Of All The Things" is a hilarious and touching pop/rock/country/R&B documentary that follows Dennis on his whirlwind tour as he rediscovers his passion for music - a two-week adventure that takes him from the comforts of Boca Raton, through the remote outer islands of the Philippines, to a sold-out show at Manila's famous Araneta Coliseum for thousands of fans he never knew he had. Some lives deserve an encore.
"Of All The Things" is directed by Jody Lambert and produced by Taylor Williams, who comprise the production company The Shot Clock. The film had its World Premiere at the 2008 South By Southwest (SXSW) Film Festival.
Songwriter/producer Dennis Lambert began his career as a child performer in the Catskills in the late 1950s and signed his first record deal with Capitol Records at age 13. In the mid '60s, 16-yr-old Lambert found himself amid the British invasion - Dennis wrote and produced hits by Freddie and the Dreamers ("Do The Freddie"), the Nashville Teens ("Find My Way Back Home"). The McCoys ("Up & Down"), and the Roulettes ("I Can't Stop"). On the rhythm and blues front, he scored hits with Jerry Butler ("I Dig You Baby"), Lorraine Ellison and Jerry Lee Lewis. By the end of the decade, he had composed the smash song, "One Tin Soldier" from the film 'Billy Jack.'
By then, Lambert had formed a songwriting partnership with Brian Potter, with whom he signed a publishing deal with ABC-Dunhill in 1969. At ABC/Dunhill, Lambert & Potter helmed hit records for The Four Tops, Dusty Springfield, and Glen Campbell, among others. Lambert cut a solo album, 'Bags and Things,' in 1972. However, Lambert's songwriting and production work at ABC-Dunhill was beginning to make clear that his real impact lay behind the scenes. More hits followed, including Gayle McCormick's "It's a Cryin' Shame" and Hamilton, Joe Frank & Reynolds' "Don't Pull Your Love."
But 1972 was their true breakout
year, thanks to their work on The Four Tops' post-Motown
LP 'Keeper of the Castle.' The group went on to score hits
with the Lambert/Potter-penned title track and "Ain't No
Woman (Like the One I Got)," which revived The Four Tops'
career. In the wake of that success, Lambert & Potter were
teamed with new ABC-Dunhill signee Dusty Springfield for
1973's 'Cameo,' and the following year they helped bring
R&B group Tavares their first significant chart success.
Lambert & Potter's biggest smash as producers came in 1975 with Glen Campbell's 'Rhinestone Cowboy' LP, for which they also wrote four songs.
The '80s saw hits for Lambert
by the Commodores ("Nightshift"), Starship ("We Built This
City" and "Sara"), Dennis Edwards & Siedah Garrett ("Don't
Look Any Further"), Natalie Cole ("Pink Cadillac" and "I
Live For Your Love"), and The Temptations ("Love On My Mind
Lambert's records have been sampled by everyone from 2Pac to Jay-Z to Erik B. & Rakim. Simply, Dennis Lambert's songs are modern classics.
