"It's amazing that NONE of the reviews mention the fact that THE COVER FOR THIS CD IS ACTUALLY FOR "Rose Royce III - Strikes Again" which came out around 1978. I recognized the cover because I own the album. I also checked the back cover photo which shows the song names (since no song list was available). I thought I had finally found the long lost CD for the album I had.
What I received was Rose Royce Greatest Hits Live. NOT WHAT I WANTED. HAD TO FILE A CLAIM TO GET MY MONEY BACK, and yet the item is still here being offered for sale. AMAZING!"
RR-the Ultimate-Best Love

"As being part of the soul/funk movement of the 70's, Rose Royce will always be remembered for the Car Wash tunes. Personally, I think they never got the attention as they deserved, they will always have a special place for the real soul/funk lovers. Even these days, many remixes are based upon tunes from RR (wishing on a star/Is it love you're after). Any song by RR will have my 5 star reward. I just wonder where is the song "Best Love" one of my favorites which shows the classic souly sounds and the modern disco beats during those times (terrific drums and timing) which will go on to eternity. I'm still hoping on the release of their Best Love Album, well the tape will do for the time being."

"funny how a group who doesn't get much love sure has played a major part on the landscape of songs.many of there songs have been remade by everybody from madonna to mary j bliege. and sampled like crazy.harmonys,the funky grooves,and pop hooks are all here.the name did them justice cuz they are a class act period."

"After glancing at some of the titles you begin to think to yourself, oh that's who sings that song. Rose Royce is probably the most underrated bands and or groups to have swept through the late 1970's and Rose Royce Greatest Hits is proof of such. With a style similar to Earth, Wind & Fire as the first half (first seven songs) have the same pop disco feel with live instruments. Most memorable is "Car Wash" as it gives you the push to get you up. The other half (tracks 8 - 14) is slower and remains classics for soulful R&B love songs to this day. "...I hope you feel the same way to...""
