Editorial Reviews

Digitally remastered and expanded edition of this 1982 album from the Soul/R&B outfit. Stronger Than Ever proves that Rose Royce were certainly plenty strong at this point in their career, working with a tight modern Soul groove on Epic Records, away from their previous placement on the Whitfield label, even though Norman Whitfield's still very actively handling production here. As well as being a hit in the R&B charts the single 'Best Love' made the Top 20 in the Netherlands with the album making the top 30. 'Still In Love' is also a long standing hit with UK Soul fans.

Rose Royce was QUITE the R&B band in the 70's with seemingly hit after hit after hit. Pigeonholed into the "Disco" category (and unfairly so,) they jammed the charts for weeks with the now CLASSIC, "Car Wash" and other strong R&B/Funk contenders such as "I Wanna Get Next to You," "I'm Going Down," the ever classic, "Wishing on A Star" and "Love Don't Live Here Anymore."

Come the end of the 70's, the hits began to taper off and after two failed albums on Warner Brothers ("Golden Touch" and "Jump Street,") they were signed to Epic/CBS with "Stronger Than Ever," which found them in peak form. Sadly, they were no longer the household name they once were and it, too, failed in returning them to R&B greatness.

"Stronger Than Ever" boasted a couple of excellent songs that SHOULD HAVE BEEN hits and were not (except in the U.K.,) despite the fact that the vocals (Ricci Benson) as well as the arrangements were spot on. Also here are a couple of tender, melodic ballads that are reminiscent of say, Lionel Richie. My favorites include the first single, "Still in Love" which features one of the most impressive piano solos ever heard in (then) contemporary R&B!

Also noteworthy are the second single, "Best Love," which charted but without much heat (in The States) and "You Blew It," a nice, tight little funk jam similar to what bands of that day might have been doing like Skyy or Con Funk Shun. The latter's "Too Tight" comes to mind specifically.

The cover art is really, really special with that giant rose busting out from under the pavement and the production, top notch.

It's good to see that this title has finally been released on cd. I had been trying for years to find out who recorded the 1982 song "Still In Love". I would've never thought that it was Rose Royce. It sounded like Chaka Khan at the time when I first heard it back in 82. The 80's really rocked I tell you. It would be nice if Warner Brothers could release this group's 1978 album on cd entitled "Strikes Again". That was the album with their hit song "Love Don't Live Here Anymore".
