AllMusic Review by

The packaging looks a little better than most releases of its kind, but Heatwave is a to-be-avoided compilation that combines original recordings with re-recordings (or "original artist re-recordings," as noted on the back of the disc). Five of these 14 songs are inferior re-recordings of popular Motown hits, including the title track, "Quicksand," and "Dancing in the Street." The listener deserves better.
