Product Description

1983 saw the release of their second album on Capitol, HIGH RISE, and was the follow up to 1982’s Street Opera which included the top ten R&B hit, Street Corner and was also the warm up to Solid, the Gold Selling album that would give ASHFORD & SIMPSON their biggest selling single and first R&B #1 spot. Written, produced and arranged by ASHFORD & SIMPSON, HIGH RISE flew high in the R&B charts peaking at #14. HIGH RISE also contains the hugely successful title track, which reached the top 20 on the US R&B chart. Other notable singles include the up tempo second single, ITS MUCH DEEPER and the third single, I’M NOT THAT TOUGH which also achieved R&B chart success. The album also features their own version of STILL SUCH A THING. BBR is proud to present this fully expanded reissue for the first time on CD in the UK complete with extensive liner notes and added bonus content.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great album beautifully remastered 28 Aug 2011
By barry - Published on
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This album from 1983 is Ashford and Simpson perfection. A perfect mix of uptempo tracks with some glorious ballads. The title track HIGH RISE is a sublime dance trace with an irresistible beat and of course the glorious harmonies of our married duo. They seem to be having so much fun. SIDE EFFECT and IT'S MUCH DEEPER are also uptempo standouts. For me though the true magic on this album comes from the superb ballads. EXPERIENCE (LOVE HAD NO FACE) and I'M NOT THAT TOUGH are songs with deep meaning and are sung with heartfelt conviction. I'M NOT THAT TOUGH builds to a true vocal and emotional climax. Also both tracks, though duets, seem to highlight the vocals of Nick Ashford more than usual and it is a true treat to hear all his voice can do. MY KINDA PICK ME UP is one of those album tracks that should have been a hit. This song alone shows the true versatility of Ashford and Simpson. It is pure r@b jazz and their vocals soar all over caressing each shining moment of this true gem. BBR presents this excellent album here on cd beautifully remastered with extensive liner notes and 5 bonus tracks.

Ashford and Simpson are historical in the music world and all their efforts totally stand the test of time. HIGH RISE shows them at their best and is indeed a must have. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars A timely classic. 24 Aug 2011
By Pavel Palees - Published on
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I received this classic CD the day Nick Ashford died, how ironic. This cd is as brilliant today as it was 28 years ago. The title track is a suspenseful yet soulfull slice of heaven. The liner notes are simply superb. This British company, BBR, who specializes in re-mastering soul/dance music from the 70's and 80's does a superb job here and with every remaster they take on. If you are a fan of ASHFORD AND SIMPOSN, this is a must!!!
