ASHFORD & SIMPSON - - "Street Opera" - EMI 1982 Dutch Sealed [Expired]


no longer for sale

"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 couple’s separation. “It’s 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.
