Car Wash: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

1 rating: 5.0
Soundtracks album by Norman Whitfield

IfCar Washlooks and feels like a 97-minute music video, there's good reason for it. Lacking anything resembling a workable script, screenwriter Joel Schumacher (yes, him--funny how things don't change, isn't it?) enlisted Motown veteran Norman Whitfield … see full wiki

Most famous 7 hand claps in music history

Everybody knows this one song starting with the hand claps: CAR WASH.
It was from the first movie built around a soundtrack. And to me it's still one of the best soundtracks - if not THE best - ever.
Genius music producer Norman Whitfield in 1976 actually created a band for this - and what a band it was: Rose Royce. As they were filming the movie they used the real music as background for the shoots. That's why the cast is "in the groove" at all times.
The entire album is composed, arranged and produced by Norman Whitfield.
Just in case any of you don't know who he is.... The Temptations, Marvin Gaye, The Undisputed Truth, Gladys Knight and the Pips, Stevie Wonder, Rose Royce - just a few names of the many greats whose albums he produced.
Papa was a Rollin' Stone, I Heard It Through The Grapevine, Car Wash - his music is timeless.
Rose Royce is: Gwen Dickey vocals, Kenji Brown guitar, Lequeint Jobe bass, Victor Nix keys, Henry Garner drums, Kenny Copeland trumpet, Michael Moore sax, Terry Santiel congas
This cd has all the songs and instrumentals from the movie. Don't go for any best of's cause you'll be missing out on a ton of gems.
If this disc doesn't make you wiggle I don't know what will.
GET IT NOW!
