Ashford & Simpson ‎– Solid. Format: Vinyl, LP, Album.

Ashford & Simpson showed a harder edge on ‘Outta The World’, a sharp slice of minimalist, machine-tooled, funk about sexual attraction (it was the second single released from the album, making N. in the US R&B chart). Other highlights included the rock-inflected ‘Babies’, a cautionary tale with a killer chorus about the consequences of teenage pregnancy (it was the third single lifted from the LP, reaching N. 9 in the R&B chart). Thirty-three years on, Solid remains the undoubted jewel in Ashford & Simpson’s crown. Solid can be bought here.

Produced by Nickolas Ashford & Valerie Simpson. And for love's sake Each mistake Oh, you forgave And soon both of us Learned to trust Not run away It was no time to play We build it up And build it up And build it up. And now it's solid Solid as a rock That's what this love is That's what we've got, oh, mmm. Solid Solid as a rock And nothing's changed it, woo The thrill is still hot, hot, hot, hot, hot, hot, hot, hot. Oh, ha, you didn't turn away When the sky went gray Somehow we managed We had to stick together.
