An undisputed classic soundtrack. One of the few tracks guaranteed to get a funk fan moving at a wedding disco, 'Carwash' is a great funk album. Norman Whitfield, the producer responsible for turning the Motown sound into funk, wrote some seriously groovy tracks for the Richard Pryor movie. 'Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is' and 'Zig Zag' are only two of the great tracks on this album. But you already knew that, right?

What this review fails to do is mention the fact that the album also was the very successful debut of the Norman Whitfield Produced group Rose Royce.
