Quick Overview

Having spent the 1960s redefining R&B through writing/producing most of The Temptations’ hits, Rose Royce would prove to be Norman Whitfield’s most enduring project of the 1970s. With 1976’s multi-racial quasi-musical CAR WASH acting as the band’s launch, the Grammy-winning soundtrack was a playful guide to the funk/disco the band would expand on through the remainder of the disco era. Signing to Whitfield’s self-titled label, Rose Royce would close out the 1970s with internationally successful hits.

1977’s ROSE ROYCE II: IN FULL BLOOM (SOUL #1/POP #9/UK #18) continued the band’s run of chart hits, with first single ‘Do Your Dance’ (R&B #4/POP #39/UK #30) giving the album its Funk/Disco centrepiece.
Second US single ‘Ooh Boy’ (R&B #3/Pop #72) is quietly assured Jazzy Soul with a particularly charming lead by Gwen Dickey whilst her performance on the second UK single ‘Wishing On A Star’ (UK #3 and later, R&B #52) helped it become a bona-fide low light classic and was later covered by many artists including The Cover Girls, Randy Crawford and Seal.
UK follow up ‘It Makes You Feel like Dancin’ (UK #16) was a perfect balance of the Norman Whitfield funk sound with the more electronic strains of late seventies disco and proved the group to be one of the biggest US imports in the UK in 1978. BBR are thrilled to present a newly remastered and expanded edition of IN FULL BLOOM presented in a super jewel case with four added bonus tracks and comprehensive liner notes that include
