Dennis Lambert may be the biggest hit machine you never heard of, a songwriter and producer in the '70s and '80s with such classics as "Rhinestone Cowboy," "Baby Come Back," and Starship's now notorious "We Built This City" to his credit. After that, the New York native, who's now 60, moved to Boca Raton and went into high-end real estate. But a call from the Philippines — where his obscure (in the US) 1972 solo album, Bags and Things, was a smash — sparked a comeback tour. Son Jody Lambert's touching portrait reveals an artist who's a perfectionist behind the controls but lets loose with pathos and exuberance in front of a crowd.
