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 album's superb songcraft, rich orchestration and lushly romantic atmosphere. “Over and Over,” “Destiny” and the title track are other highlights of the self-produced 1977 set, which set the stage for a trio of Gold albums that followed. A collection that will leave R&B fans SO SO SATISFIED, the album's beautiful love ballads also make it perfect for Valentine’s Day.
