We are in the middle of a semi-heat wave, so there is no better band that could represent the heat than these guys right here. A couple of brothers ( who were actual brothers), a Spaniard, a Czech, and a couple of Americans came together to form a very soulful band. Some people say that they were Disco, and they were, but the roots were pure soul. The three albums I dug to get theses songs: Too Hot to Handle, Central Heating, and Hot Property, all came out while we were living in Germany. The Germans loved it for the disco sound while the Black G.I.s dug the soul. It was played at the carnivals, beer fest and my tiny youth center dances. The first two albums were “play the entire album” list in my house, but I tried to pick the ones that weren’t the BIG hits, though they were all big hits to me.
Anyway, get in the house and stay cool fools.
Ladies and Gentlemen:Too Hot to Handle- Heatwave
Central Heating- Heatwave
Send Out for Sunshine- Heatwave
Therm Warfare- Heatwave
This last one doesn’t really have anything to do with heat, but the harmonies are way too tight to not include this one.Super Soul Sister- Heatwave
