RIP Nick Ashford

Sad to hear Nick Ashford passed at 70... He was 1/2 of Ashford and Simpson, the brilliant singer-songwriter husband and wife duo that penned 'Ain't No Mountain High Enough' and many other Motown classics before launching their own career in the 1970s... Their memorable soul/disco work in the late 70s reminds me of my earliest days in New York, as a starry-eyed and newly out kid of 19. I actually met them both on the street in the 1980s, they are lovely people with a good, generous vibe.. From 1983, enjoy 'High Rise.'

The duo's signature song is 1984's 'Solid', a huge crossover hit and a testament to their marriage.

I love their smoking 'Nobody Knows,' from 1979...

I was won over by their charming 'Found A Cure', from 1979..
