Reissue of two rare Motown solo albums by the legendary songwriter/producer and recording artist Valerie Simpson. Originally issued in 1971 and 1972 respectively, “Exposed” and the self-titled “Valerie Simpson” have been out of print on CD for almost a decade.

As part of the creative duo with her husband, the late Nick Ashford, Valerie’s work as a songwriter and producer was at the forefront during her tenure with Motown from 1967-1972.  Artwork by Roger Williams and notes by Charles Waring with additional comments by founder David Nathan, who has been interviewing Valerie since 1972.
