Streetwave Records originally released this set in 1984. It represents one of the final chapters of Rose Royce's interesting recording career. The tunes are as arresting as any they ever did; but with little promotion, these charming caressers and robotic grooves escaped all but Rose Royce's most fanatical fans' attention. Kenny Copeland's sugary falsetto (he doubles on trumpet) and Ricci Benson's -- who replaced Gwen Dickey -- striking soprano sparkle throughout. Like good brewed coffee, Music Magic is good from the first to the last drop.
