About this release

Crimson presents Heatwave ‘Gold’, the only Heatwave compilation you’ll ever need.

Heatwave are a British funk and disco band formed in 1975. The group arrived on the scene with their debut album ‘TOO HOT TOO HANDLE’ in 1976. The album featured Heatwave’s first hit single ‘Boogie Nights’ which charted at #2 in both the US and UK and was the first in a string of hit records for the group. Heatwave’s influential funk-disco sound led to member Rod Temperton working on tracks for Michael Jackson’s ‘Off The Wall’ album and later writing the iconic ‘Thriller’.

This new compilation features tracks from across Heatwave’s career including all of the hit singles and a third CD of disco mixes.

CD 1 kicks things off with the band’s mid-’70s classics including the smash hit ‘Boogie Nights’, ‘Ain’t No Half Steppin’’, and ‘Always And Forever’ which went on to be covered by numerous artists including Luther Vandross, Whistle, and Johnny Mathis.

CD 2 covers the group’s later hits including UK top twenty single ‘Gangsters Of The Groove’ and ‘Jitterbuggin’’.

CD 3 rounds off this new compilation with a collection of some of Heatwave’s finest disco mixes. Highlights include a selection of Mike Maurro remixes plus a variety of 12” mixes.
