R.I.P Nick Ashford 1942 - 2011

We mark the passing of another Soul legend Nickolas Ashford who died yesterday.

As half of the prolific recording and song writing duo Ashford and Simpson they were responsable for writing massive Motown hits like 'Aint no mountain high enough' and 'You're all I need to get by' in the 1960's and continued writing hits like 'I'm every woman' in the 70's. This coupled with recording a long list of quality Soul LPs throughout the 70's and 80's in their own right.

Below is one of my favorite Ashford and Simpsons songs by way of tribute from the 'Mixtape'.....

Thanks Grizz, and while were at it, one of my favorites.
