REPOST: VALERIE & NICK - I'LL FIND YOU (Nick Ashford, RIP)
So Sad to hear that we lost not only Jerry Leiber but also Nick Ashford.
(originally posted in 2009)
Shortly before they wrote such classics as "I Don't Need No Doctor", "California Soul" (one of my all time faves) and "Ain't No Mountain High Enough" (among others), Valerie (Simpson) and Nick (Ashford) released this incredible debut record as a duo for a tiny label. Can't say that I'm a fan of latter day Ashford & Simpson joints, but their writing throughout the sixties was at that level that very few ever achieve.
What a start they had on this great record!
