This compilation features Ashford & Simpson
cuts from Street Opera
, Solid, and Real Love
, their four Capitol albums. Some but not all of the duo's best recordings are included -- Ashford & Simpson
were on the downslide at Capitol, their albums were no longer going gold as they had at Warner Brothers, and hits were hard to come by. The best of this lot includes the upbeat "Solid," where they sing about the joys of their long-lasting relationship, and "Street Corner." Ashford & Simpson
fans should unapologetically love this, but casual fans might want to go with a more complete "best-of" collection encompassing more of the duo's career.
