Rose RoyceFresh Cut ... CD
Atlantic/Expansion (UK), 1986. New Copy ... $8.99 16.99
An overlooked 80s moment from Rose Royce – a set recorded after the group had stepped away from their famous association with Norman Whitfield, but were still very much at the top of the modern soul game! The production here is maybe a bit more 80s than before, but the group continue to keep things nice and warm – especially in the way they make use of the mixture of vocals from Ricci Benson and Kenny Copeland, that male/female blend that always give Rose Royce a fuller sound than some of their contemporaries – very welcome here on some of the more upbeat numbers. Titles include "Listen Up", "If Walls Could Talk", "Lonely Road", "Magic Doll", "Doesn't Have To Be This Way", "I Know I'm In The Mood", and "Fighting Chance". CD

Rose RoyceIn Full Bloom ... LP
Whitfield, 1977. Near Mint- Gatefold ... $7.99
A big one for Norman Whitfield – who found in Rose Royce what he'd been lacking for years – a hit group ready to handle a number of styles, all well, and all with an adventurous style that would break them past the legions of lackluster funky soul groups of the late 70s. The record blends the band's more famous funky styles with smoother jazzy soul that's almost in a Minnie Riperton mode – and which is made even more so by the sweet lead vocals of Rose Norwalt. She's heard to best effect on the cuts "Wishing On A Star" and "Ooh Boy" – and other funkier numbers include "Do Your Dance", "Funk Factory", and "It Makes You Feel Like Dancing", which are all filled with great keyboards and nice spacey grooves. LP, Vinyl record album

Rose RoyceRose Royce – The Definitive Collection (3CD set) ... CD
Robinsongs (UK), Late 70s/Early 80s. New Copy 3CD ... $24.99 30.99
A career-spanning collection of work from the great Rose Royce – a group who first appeared on the scene with a crossover single from a big hit film – but who soon grew into a wonderfully cool, sophisticated soul act on their own! Motown producer Norman Whitfield was one of the more righteous forces at that label at the end of the 60s – and he left the company to strike out on his own in the 70s – hitting well with some acts, but really knocking it out of the park here with Rose Royce – a group who are wonderfully flexible, and able to latch on to all the best ideas that Whitfield wanted to try in the studio! That means that the set here has some catchy groovers, fantastic mellow moments, and superb midtempo cuts that often have a nice current of darkness – that subtle way of putting over a tune that can really make Rose Royce shine at their best. And although other collections have featured their work, this huge 3CD set is the first to bring together their material from the labels Whitfield, MCA, and Epic – in a package of 38 tracks that features the full long mixes of "RR Express" and "Car Wash" – plus "I Wonder Where You ARe Tonight", "Tell Me That I'm Dreaming", "Love Is In The Air", "Golden Touch", "Funkin Around", "Pazazz", "Put Your Money Where Your Muth Is", "Wishing On A Star", "I Wanna Get Next To Yu", "Do Your Dance", "Ooh Boy", "Love Don't Live Here Anymore", "First Come First Serve", "Do It Do It", "Fire The Funk", "Illusions", and lots lots more!

Rose Royce/Norman WhitfieldCar Wash – Original Soundtrack ... CD
MCA/Universal (Japan), 1976. New Copy ... $13.99 16.99
A solid bit of heavy funk – and one of the last strong-selling soundtracks of the blacksploitation era! Sure, you know the hit "Car Wash", but there's plenty of other great numbers that rank this set right up there with the best of its genre. There's a lot of nice instrumentals on the album that feature a tight smooth funky sound – with good work on clavinet, wah wah guitar, and horns – all quite different than the usual work of Whitfield and Rose Royce at the time. The group do a good job on the vocal cuts, working in that soulful early 70s Motown mode that Whitfield was working on with other acts – and the whole album's as great a debut for Rose Royce as anyone could have hoped for. Features the hit title cut, plus "I Wanna Get Next To You", "Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is", "Zig Zag", "Mid Day DJ Theme", "I'm Going Down", "Crying", "Doing What Comes Naturally", and "Righteous Rhythm". The Pointer Sisters sing on one track, "You Gotta Believe". CD

Heaven & EarthHeaven & Earth ... CD
Mercury/PTG (UK), 1978. New Copy ... $11.99 19.99
Excellent work from this smooth Chicago vocal group! The album may well be the best the group ever recorded – and it features some stellar ballad work produced with a nice spacey tone, almost in a Rose Royce mellow mode – by Jerry Butler's Fountain Productions team and by Clarence Johnson, who brought the group up from the beginning! The real strength of the album, though, is the group's vocals – wonderfully harmonious, but with a rougher edge and a deeper soul than many other 70s groups of the same type. The album includes the massive semi-hit "Guess Who's Back In Town" – plus other good ballads like "How Do You Think You're Gonna Find Love", "Let's Work It Out", and "Distant Melody". The album also features some uptempo numbers – and other tracks include "Run & Tell That", "Dance A Thon", and "No Limit". CD

VariousPsychedelic Soul Produced By Norman Whitfield ... CD
Kent (UK), Late 60s/1970s. New Copy ... $14.99 22.99
Fantastic sounds from one of our all-time favorite producers in soul music – the legendary Norman Whitfield, the man who helped some of Motown's artists pick up a new sort of righteous sound at the end of the 60s, before moving on to start his own Whitfield label in the 70s! If you don't know Norman, you definitely know his work – as he's the cat responsible for adding heavy basslines and fuzzy guitars to Detroit soul – picking up on some of the wider musical changes in the Motor City, and using them to push more message-oriented tracks into the scene! Yet Norman wasn't just a 60s powerhouse – as when the 70s approached, he found a way to expand and refine that sound, keeping it fresh in so many different ways – as you'll hear here in this really well-done collection of his best recordings, supported by very detailed notes as well. Tracks include "I Saw You When You Met Her" by The Undisputed Truth, "Ooh Boy" by Rose Royce, "And All Hell Broke Loose" by Willie Hutch, "I've Been Waitin (single version)" by Spyder Turner, "I Heard It Through The Grapevine" by Marvin Gaye, "Come With Me (single version)" by Rare Earth, "Just One Love" by Stargard, "Wishing On A Star" by Jr Walker, "Love Don't Live Here Anymore" by Rose Roce, "Love Is What You Make It" by Masterpiece, "Good Lovin" by Mammatapee, "Papa Was A Rolling Stone (single version)" by The Temptations, "War" by Edwin Starr, "It Should Have Been Me" by Yvonne Fair, "Me & Rock & Roll Are Here To Stay" by David Ruffin, and "Psychedelic Shack (single version with intro)" by The Temptations.

✨✧ NytroNytro ... LP
Whitfield, 1977. Very Good+ ... Out Of Stock
One of a number groups that Norman Whitfield was working with during the late 70s – the most famous of which was Rose Royce, and perhaps the least famous of which was Nytro. The group's got a sound that's similar to Rose Royce, with a mix of male and female vocals, and a basic style that's mostly funky soul, but which sounds even better on the ballads. The album's got a great spacey electric ballad called "Dreaming", which could have been lifted off of one of the early albums by RR – and it's got a number of bass-heavy funk numbers like "Atmosphere", "Trick Bag", "What It Is", and "Atomic Funk".
