World's HOTTEST Central Heating

  • Mar 9, 2008
Who other than Rod Temperton could do a funky thing on Central Heating?
The fabulous UK Band Heatwave made two albums with the musicians you get on this album. Both are R&B gems but I prefer this one. Why? No flaws, it's that simple.
I got it in 78 when it came out in Holland, two years later bought me a second copy cause the first one's grooves were gone. Then the cd.
It is funky and happy R&B music, with tight playing, almost no horns (except for an occasional toot here and there and a nice trombone solo on Happiness Togetherness). Not that you'd miss them for a second.
The Groove Line, Put The Word Out, Central Heating, Party Poops are the up-tempo dance tracks, Send Out For Sunshine and Mind Blowing Decisions (my favorites) great mid-tempos, Happiness Togetherness (another favorite), Star Of A Story and Leavin' For A Dream, wonderful ballads. Great lead vocals (Johnny Wilder Jr. and his brother Keith Wilder) and harmonies, terrific guitar, bass, drums, percussion, keys.
The songwriting is top notch. Beautiful ballads, good stompers, most written by Rod. Quincy must have loved this one too because a little later they started working together on Michael's albums, George Benson, Brothers Johnson etc.
So, get it (if not available here, try amazon.co.uk) and let it heat up the place.
