Ashford & Simpson were an American husband-and-wife on team and recording duo of Nickolas Ashford (May 4, 1941 – August 22, 2011) and Valerie Simpson (born August 26, 1946). Ashford was born in Fairfield, South Carolina, and Simpson in the Bronx, New York City. Afterwards, his family relocated to Ypsilanti, Michigan, where he became a member of Christ Temple Baptist Church.

Album · 1979 · 7 Songs. Stay Free Ashford & Simpson. Ashford & Simpson: The Warner Brothers Years - Hits, Remixes and Rarities.

Soul-Funk of "Stay Free" and the pretty mid-tempo ballad of "Crazy" (played in bedrooms everywhere in 1979) will thrill fans of this criminally forgotten A&S album. I remember the LP built strongly on the good stuff from "Is It Still Good To Ya" record from the year previous - to a point where Ashford & Simpson seemed to be on every dancefloor everywhere at the end of that eventful decade

Ashford & Simpson dominated the '70s as few couples ever have in any era; they were the textbook blend of classic R&B energy and urban contemporary class and sophistication. Their best material was neither so generic that it lacked soul, nor so soulful that it couldn't attract a crossover audience.

Here he gets to work on Ashford and Simpson's 1979 cut "Stay Free", delivering four different revisions.

Stay Free - Ashford & Simpson. Artist: Ashford & Simpson. Album: Ashford & Simpson: The Warner Brothers Years - Hits, Remixes and Rarities, 2008. Ashford & Simpson ‎– The Warner Bros.

I did this one when the Ashford & Simpson remix album came out a few years back with 2 other versions of mine, has never been released.
