Description

The smoothest of 70's R&B outfits Heatwave crossed many borders, laying claim to huge hits like Boogie Nights, The Groove Line, Gangsters Of The Groove and Always And Forever which had a great impact on both sides of the Atlantic. The members of Heatwave hailed from all over the globe making this group a truly international act which contributed to their unique and influential sound. Heatwave's sophomore LP Central Heating (R&B #2/Pop #10/UK#26), released in 1977 on GTO Records, more than lived up to the groups breakthrough album from the year before. All but two of the tracks were penned by Rod Thriller Temperton with the remainder from the hand of lead vocalist Johnnie Wilder. The stand out tracks include the funk smash and disco-era anthem The Groove Line (R&B #3/Pop #7/UK #12) and the quiet storm classic Mind Blowing Decisions (UK #12/R&B #49) as well as party grooves Put Out The Word, and Party Poops and the smooth soul of Happiness Togetherness and The Star Of A Story, which was later covered by George Benson on his Quincy Jones produced Give Me The Night album.
