Friday Flashback: Rose Royce

"Love Don't Live Here Anymore" by Soul/Funk group Rose Royce is noted as being one of the first songs to use the electronic LinnDrum drum machine, which Dave Thompson, author of Funk noted as if " virtually duetted with Dickey, creating one of the most distinctive records of the year—and one of the most imitated of the age.". Originally recorded in 1978 by Rose Royce, the song has been covered by Faith Evans, Madonna, and a few other groups. The song was written by British songwriter Miles Gregory, produced by Paul Buckmaster and Norman Whitfield on his own Whitefield Records, and featured lead vocals by Gwen Dickey.
