"Their next major move came in 1981, when, after a series of successful releases on Warner Brothers, they signed with the Capitol label. Their first release, Street Opera, seemed to reflect a new creative freedom: on one side of the album, four songs were linked together in the manner of a classical opera by sung dialogue and a simple but heartfelt plot line that explored the difficulty of maintaining a stable relationship in the inner city. The story ends with a couples separation. Its semitragic, because she understands his problems and that they must leave each other, but there is hope in the end because she understands
why he must leave, Ashford was quoted as saying by Irwin Stambler. Street Opera yielded the hit single Street Corner, and the career of Ashford and Simpson entered a new and consistently successful phase." - CCI.
