Rose Royce: A Very Satisfying Year

John Abbey, Blues & Soul, February 1979

UNDOUBTEDLY, 1978 was The Year Of The Groups. Earth Wind & Fire, the Commodores and Rose Royce almost held a monopoly on the awards. Though slightly weaker than the former two, Rose Royce can look back on '78 with great satisfaction. Although they didn't actually top any section, you'll see Rose Royce represented in the top three of four categories.
