Valerie Simpson: I Just Wanna Be There (Tamla, 1971, Exposed)

Debut soul album from one-half of the Ashford and Simpson team.

Valerie Simpson’s solo debut LP made little impact, especially relative to the immense success her and Nick Ashford had as a songwriting duo in the 1960s for Motown (or their later ’70s duo career). And if we’re being honest here, this first album was rather unmemorable overall but out of it, I did think this was, by far, the catchiest track on there.
