Lost Soul: Joi

Fresh from producing and playing piano on Dusty’s A Brand New Me album – her greatest lp, surely – Gamble-Huff staffer Ugene Dozier wrote Spring Fever Pt 1 for Joi, released on the small Beverly Hills label in 1971. I don’t know anything else about Joi – although I’d love to hear more, if there is anything – but am certain that even counting his work with Wilson Pickett, The O’Jays, Dusty and a whole load more, Spring Fever ranks at least equal to anything Ugene Dozier was involved in.
