THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO ASHFORD & SIMPSON: COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS is part of EMI Records' Heart Of Soul series.
A 15-song sampler of their 1980s work, leaning far more heavily on tracks from the first half of the decade, this includes the hits "I'll Be There for You," "Count Your Blessings," "Street Opera," and "Solid," although one of their biggest, "Outta the World," is strangely absent. More than just about any other single-artist compilation you could name, this is a definitive representation of how mainstream soul often sounded in the 1980s. Which is to say, it often sounded more like adult contemporary pop than soul. ~ Richie Unterberger
