They set up two record labels: Hot Wax and Invictus, scoring some early hits in 1970 and 1971 with Freda Payne (Band of Gold), Chairmen Of The Board (Give Me Just a Little More Time), and a US number one with Honey Cone's Want Ads. All these were produced by Holland-Dozier-Holland; they also wrote the latter two. But without the infrastructure (and financial muscle) of Motown, the labels didn't last more than a few years.
More about Honey Cone another day. But before Lamont Dozier left for a minor solo career (peaking with 1974's Fish Ain't Bitin' - which notably wasn't written by him), the team put out a few singles of their own.
Don't Leave Me Starvin' For Your Love is, like a lot of their compositions, a low-key song without any real punches... but it really grows on you. There's times I just could not get it out of my head. And it's the only one of their own renditions that made a (minor) dent in the charts, credited as Holland-Dozier featuring Brian Holland.
