The only downfall in this collection is that the full length version of the evergreen classic "Always and forever" is not included, therefore we settle for the 7" version. The Best songs here are the Rod Temperton penned "Boogie nights" "Too hot to handle", the previously mentioned track, and johnny wilders "mind blowing decisions" Overall this is a great introduction to one of the great British soul groups to emerge from the late seventies. As mentioned before, only the fact that the omited full length version of Always & Forever has prevented me from giving this 5 stars.

The british ground breaking band that wowed us in the discos with "The groove line" and charted with "mind blowing decisions"
and hit the floor and the charts with "boogie nights"
This is a best of album and has many more club tracks that remained album tracks only, nevertheless still have that rod temperton Quality about them, Who went on to be one of the most prolific writers of all time for michael Jackson.
Lend an ear to the last track "big guns" an infectious piece of jazz-funk that I cant stop playing!!

This album aptly summarises the best hits of the early British funk band, Heatwave. There is something fresh, light, happy, naive even in the way the band play, in the orchestrations and in Wilder's unique vocal range which means that many of the tracks have outlived the post-disco era and can lay claim to being classic funk tunes. Rod Temperton's peerless songwriting skills are in evidence on the biggest hits, Boogie Nights probably being the biggest of all.
The album contains all the best songs, although I share the previous reviewer's frustrations that extended versions were not included, specifically of Always and Forever and Gangsters of the Groove.
Only four stars because there is unfortunately a bit of padding with some truly poor efforts, notably track 9, which show up the fact that Heatwave were not a band "built to last". There's also some fairly shameless copying of the Earth, Wind & Fire style on one or two of the tracks, showing that the band quickly ran out of ideas.
Nevertheless, Heatwave were pioneers of the Britfunk scene and helped lay the path for bands like Level 42, Incongnito, Light of the World, Central Line et al. The album is good value and, with use of the skip track button, gives you half an hour or so of great music.

An excellent collection of oldies from a great seventies disco group who had some classic hits like Boogie Nights, while also being sufficiently diverse to write beautiful ballads like Always and Forever. A joy to listen to again for anyone like me who live through the period as well as younger listeners unaware of such treasures.

It's one of those days, when I was scanning through my bookmarks, and came across this album I'd saved, to buy, one day. I've had this on hold, possibly for over a year! Just goes to show from the song list I've read through, that it's one of the best compi's ever, from Heatwave. One, because the songs are original studio cuts, two, because there are so many songs I loved from them when I was a kid, oh, SO many years ago! Plus, the added bonus of certain tracks finding their way here that I've never come across.

Good ol' Amazon does it again as one of their lovely features where you can buy the CD and grab a download to play with while you're waiting for your album to pop through the letterbox! D'you know what? That's what keeps me coming here. That really is a lovely feature, especially with this album.

Really glad you guys have still got this one. It's a treasure I spotted ages ago. Been a fan of Heatwave for many, many years.

All the hits, brought back memories of late 70s etc, and a pleasant listen. I suppose a bit dated now, but certainly one to have in your collection, for Soul,Funk fans of that era. Favorites include "Posin' Till Closing" "Groove Line" and "Boogie nights"
