Boombox 12 Electro Funk & Deep Disco

Enjoy the 12th part of Boombox! The opening track by Ronika is from her brand new album 'Lose my cool' and the following song by Khemistry, ‘I Can't Lose With The Stuff I Use’, is probably about doped athletes… ;-)

Rose Royce used to play with Motown artist Edwin Starr and consisted of former members of studio band The Undisputed Truth. They became famous for the Norman Whitfield-produced soundtrack to the Richard Pryor movie 'Car Wash'. With its hand-clapping, funky intro, exciting vocals and the band's great performance, the title track became one of the biggest disco songs ever, leaping to #1 on the pop and soul charts. Fortunately, Rose Royce turned out to be neither a one-hit-wonder, nor just a disco band. The group's follow-up album, ‘Rose Royce II: In Full Bloom’, produced two Top Ten singles, ‘Do Your Dance’ and ‘Ooh Boy’. It also included ‘Wishing on a Star’, which for Rose Royce was a top-10 hit only in the UK. It became notable elsewhere through its cover versions, including The Cover Girls' Top Ten single in 1992.

Next up is a new part of Best Of 70s Soul!
