Nickolas Ashford and Valerie Simpson have written 6 songs that reached #1 on the Billboard R&B charts since 1965. Five of those songs were hits for other artists but, in 1984, Ashford & Simpson took their own composition to the top of the chart. “Solid” was the title track of their 1984 album release and it climbed into the #1 spot on December 1, 1984 and remained at the top of the chart for 3 weeks. “Solid” also reached #1 in New Zealand. This UK 12″ release features the “Special Club Mix” that was mixed by Francois Kevorkian and Ron St. Germain. The b-side contains a dub version and their 1982 Top 10 R&B hit “Street Corner”.
