    Martin & Terry Co-Write 'Sailin' Away' ...

    1970/1971... Heatwave played, 'It's Over Now' and 'Rainmaker Man' written by Martin (drummer).
    Richard (lead guitarist) played bottle-neck electric slide on the latter which was recorded at the BBC and twice aired on the Jimmy Young BBC Worldwide Show.

    As a result, John Edward paid the princely sum of 1/- to publish the song.
    The money was invested in a Mars bar and cup of tea at the Blue Boar on the M1 on the way home from a gig.

    Unfortunately, no recordings of either song seem to have survived.

    2013... Martin and Terry (rhythm guitarist) were reunited in Florida, U.S.A.

    2014... when Terry was back in the U.K., Martin sent him some lyrics and finally, after 45 years, they co-wrote their first song.

    Terry sang and played all the instruments on, 'Sailin' Away'.

    BBC Transcription Services ‎– 357

    'Cinnamon Girl', by Neil Young, was broadcast on the BBC in 1971 by DJ Brian Matthew and is included on the BBC Transcription Services ‎– 357 compilation Top Of The Pops - 357.

    The song was recorded at the BBC when Heatwave was a 5-piece...
    John Fellows – bass & vocal
    Terry Shea – rhythm guitar & vocal
    Richard Steen – lead guitar & vocal
    Martin H. Samuel – drums
    Peter Allatt – lead vocal & percussion

    Terry (rhythm guitar) does not remember ever recording at the BBC as anything but Heatwave and believes the Top Of The Pops - 357 compilation album B-side track 4, 'Cinnamon Girl', is erroneously stated as by The Sensations.

    The A-side track 5, 'I Hear A Melody', is the single released on MCA records in 1971 by Sensations.
