Thoughts and inspirations about Reggie...

by John P. Reisman

When I was managing Promise Productions, which was one of the hottest mix rooms around LA, I saw many producers and engineers come through our room. Of all the producer/engineers that I heard there, Reggie Dozier stood out among the rest. The sound that came out of the speakers was so perfectly balanced, so powerful, so sweet and so alive... it was as if you were standing on stage with the musicians, and the music literally surrounded and enveloped you... and at the same time, it penetrated your soul.

But that's not the best part about Reggie...

The best part of Reggie is Reggie. He is one of the warmest people you will ever meet. When you meet him, he greets you like a friend; it's as if you have known him for years. Maybe one of the most easy going guys on the planet. His reputation for integrity and getting the job done has been exemplified throughout his career.

No matter what kind of music he was working on, he was always able to make it shine bright and clear, and slamming when needed. Reggie is still actively producing and making music better than ever. If your ready to make some music, Reggie is the one you want behind the desk!

Like his brother, Lamont Dozier, Reggie is an artist as well. As a producer, writer, arranger, musician and vocalist, Reggie's 'musical sense' comes from his amazing talent and experience. He 'knows' how to make music.

I don't know when I first met Reggie, it may have been in North Hollywood at Sound Master Studios back in 79 or 80, or Hollywood at Lionshare, when he was Chief Engineer working with Kenny Rogers.

Now I've known Reggie for years, and I can't tell you how many times I've heard one of his signature phrases, always delivered with a smile and a look that tells you 'you're about to get a treat'. He leans over and simply says, "Check this out" with the excitement of a childhood friend sharing something special, shiny and new..., and then he reaches for the play button...

The data indicates that current on trend warming is very likely human caused. That means those that claim 'it's a hoax' are participating in the hoax and if we really want to protect our economy we need to put on our thinking caps and get this all in context.
