Consumer Guide Reviews:

The Best of Rose Royce [Omni, 1987]
If Norman Whitfield had been content to concoct a disco trademark, they could have been greater than, I don't know, the Undisputed Truth. Instead he fed them, you know, ballads, exactly one of which is good enough for, let's say, Jennifer Holliday at the Holiday Inn. Leaving three nice dance grooves and the eternal "Car Wash." C+
