The 12" Collection" gathers together 12 tracks, pressed on 180-gram vinyl 12" singles, including many of the beyond-rare 12" mixes that were previously never commercially released, and originally only appeared as promo-only 12" extended 'disco mixes' which featured the handywork of Valerie's brother Jimmy Simpson, a pioneer of 'intros and breaks' which now form the basis of much o. The fifth 12" is a "Remixes EP", cut at 33rpm, and featuring four contemporary retellings of Ashford & Simpson musical lore by star remixers whose admiration for the songs pulses through every groove.

Notes

Description:
R&B's most enduring duo Nickolas Ashford & Valerie Simpson sure know how to make it right when it comes to soulful R&B gems and lush dance grooves from golden era of '70s soul and disco. They recorded for Warner Bros. from '73 through to the early '80s, and Rhino's ASHFORD & SIMPSON - THE WARNER BROS. YEARS: THE 12" COLLECTION both rediscovers and re-imagines the best of those years.

"The 12" Collection" gathers together 12 tracks, pressed on 180-gram vinyl 12" singles, including many of the beyond-rare 12" mixes that were previously never commercially released, and originally only appeared as promo-only 12" extended 'disco mixes' which featured the handywork of Valerie's brother Jimmy Simpson, a pioneer of 'intros and breaks' which now form the basis of much of today's dance music. The original mixes are cut at 45rpm and record one couples "One More Try" with "Tried Tested & Found True", record two pairs "Over & Over" with "It Seems To Hang On". Record three features "Don't Cost You Nothing" backed with "Bourgie Bourgie", and record four backs "Found A Cure" with "Stay Free".

The fifth 12" is a "Remixes EP", cut at 33rpm, and featuring four contemporary retellings of Ashford & Simpson musical lore by star remixers whose admiration for the songs pulses through every groove. DJ Tom Moulton's revealing take on the hit "Found A Cure", including his unearthing of elements that were long forgotten and Paul Simpson and John Morales reconsider "Tried, Tested And Found True", Dimitri re-edits "Stay Free", to become a slamming club mix and Tommy Musto re-touches "It Seems To Hang On" to create a sexy between-the-sheets groove. 'These remixers', noted Simpson, 'did an incredible job breathing new life into our songs while maintaining the integrity of them.'

All five 12" singles come on original contemporary labels and are housed in the "Disco" range bags of the period, housed in an attractive 12" x 12" slipcase box. This release is a strictly limited edition of 3,000 copies worldwide and is exclusive to Rhino.

As Ashford & Simpson would say: 'Ain't nothin' like the real thing, baby!'

**Rhino U.S. imported a quantity (750/1000) for domestic use at the time at the behest of (then) Atlantic staffer and compiler Johnny "D" De Mairo from Rhino UK and shipped from there through Specialty/Olyphant.

Excellent companion boxed vinyl set to the CD comp of the same name. Excellent pressing quality in both sonics & presentation. A shame the Dimitri from Paris re-edit of "One more Try" was not included here, but at least we get the original version, which is super RARE on OG 12".

I've bought a couple of these records without the box-set. Wonder what the story is... 3000 was way to much to handle?
