Press:-


‘Criminally ignored in their US homeland where their only top 40 hit was native New Yorker – Odyssey were more than one hit wonders in the UK, putting together a run of impressive an polished hits in the R&B/dance vein. Now remastered and expanded, Hang Together was the first of three consecutive albums by the group to crack top 40 her, and arguably the best. Music Week, May 2012

"Native New Yorker labelled them a disco act but producer Sandy Linzer widened the trio's appeal on this 1980 LP with Lillian Lopez's beautiful vocal on 'If You're Looking For A Way Out'". MOJO, September 2012

Candles
During their most commercially successful years, Heatwave were a band that crossed many borders, laying claim to such international hits as Boogie Nights, Too Hot To Handle, The Groove Line, Eyballin', and Always And Forever, all having a huge impact on both sides of the Atlantic. Heatwave’s fourth album, Candles, saw Johnnie Wilder Jr take on the producers role alongside James Guthrie, best known for his work with Pink Floyd, returning to work with Heatwave since serving as an engineer on both Too Hot To Handle and Central Heating.

Fresh off his success of contributions to Michael Jackson’s Off The Wall album, Rod Temperton remained the bands chief songwriter penning a total of five tracks including hit single, Gangsters Of The Groove which provided Heatwave with further R&B chart success reaching #21 and gaining a top 20 UK pop spot accompanied by an early foray into music video.
