Album of the Day
So So Satisfied
While songwriters Nickolas Ashford and Valerie Simpson penned enough hits at Motown to last a lifetime, the creative well was far from dry when the duo signed to Warner Bros. as performers in the mid-1970s. SO SO SATISFIED was the husband-and-wife team's fourth longplayer for the label, and opener “Tried, Tested And Found True” is an apt description of the set's superb songcraft, rich orchestration and lushly romantic atmosphere. “Over and Over,” “Destiny” and the title track are other highlights of the self-produced album, which set the stage for a trio of gold records that followed. Out now on spring-green vinyl, this 1977 collection will leave R&B fans SO SO SATISFIED.
