Reseña de álbum

This double album, the soundtrack to a hit 1976 urban-themed comedy starring Richard Pryor and George Carlin, was also the debut album for funk hitmakers Rose Royce. Although they had already recorded most of a non-soundtrack album prior to Car Wash, their producer and Svengali Norman Whitfield insisted that they put that aside when he got the opportunity to write the score for this film. The result was a killer crossover success that made the group's named and proved there was life after Motown for Whitfield. It also produced some serious hit singles: the title track was a clever tune that blended a throbbing disco beat, hypnotic funk riffs from the rhythm section, and an ornate string arrangement to become a number one hit, and "I Wanna Get Next to You" married ethereal strings to a mid-tempo soul beat to create a classic ballad in the mold of Whitfield's work with the Temptations. The remainder of the album divides its time between funky songs and orchestral-tinged instrumental workouts. In the song arena, standouts include "I'm Going Down," a torching, dramatically arranged ballad that features an all-stops-out vocal performance from Gwen Dickey, and "Daddy Rich," a witty portrait of a religious con man that is built on an infectious combination of staccato horns and a relentlessly churning rhythm guitar hook. The masterpiece in the instrumental arena is "Sunrise," a hypnotic ten-minute epic whose effective tension-and-release arrangement adds and subtracts layers of instrumentation over a pulsating beat to create a thoroughly hypnotic effect. Two albums' worth of Rose Royce may be a little too much for the casual listener, but there is no denying that Car Wash is both stylishly crafted and intensely funky. It is a required listen for anyone interested in Rose Royce and a solid choice for funk and disco fans alike. ~ Donald A. Guarisco, Rovi

If you're really into good music.... and more

think about it. This was a time when the music was being written for the purpose of music not because it was going to be on some lame selling movie album that might sell better than the movie. These songs were it then, and today they still do test the ultimate test---TIME! They hold up, every one of the songs that I listened to; back in '76 still sounds strong today because a great degree of talent and skill went into making it happen. I challenge what is coming out today to make that same statement.

Car wash & Rose Royce

This record makes you feel like you're living in the 1970's disco era. "I wanna get next to you" is the best song for chillin out with your girl. Car Wash puts you in the mood not only for love, but it changes your mind set. Sunrise and Yo Yo are amazing chill out songs. If you're having a bad day play this record and I promise you will feel better. I can't live without this album. It's a must have!

Definitely one of the best soundtracks ever. Everything here is in the pocket and good to yer earhole. The most famous tracks (title track, "I Wanna Get Next to You, & "I'm Going Down") are undisputedly classic. But don't sleep on "Put Your Money...," "Born to Love You," "Daddy Rich," "You Gotta Believe," and "Water" (which sounds like a cross btw Whitfield's "I Heard It Through the Grapevine" and his "Papa Was A Rolling Stone.") BUY THIS. PERIOD. (And go rent the movie. Also a classic.)
