The smoothest of seventies R&B outfits, HEATWAVE crossed many borders, laying claim to huge hits such as Boogie Nights 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. ALWAYS AND FOREVER: LOVE SONGS & SMOOTH GROOVES revisits some of Heatwave''s finest work from their original GTO and Epic albums released 1976-1982. These 17 tracks show the smoother side of a band whose ballads and down-tempo funk grooves are some of their best kept secrets. Producers Barry Blue, Phil Ramone and James Guthrie crafted classics and radio favourites written by Rod Temperton and lead vocalist Johnnie WIlder, Jr., including the timeless Always and Forever, Mind Blowing Decisions, Razzle Dazzle, Where Did I Go Wrong and rare B-sides Turn Out the Lamplight and Birthday. Even at their coolest, Heatwave was the hottest band in town.
