"A great pack of pure disco pop fun, containing such gems as "I Like Sugar Candy Kisses", "Eeny Meeny Miny Moe" and "If You Love Me." Luv' may have been a B-level ABBA without a human depth, but while ABBA happens to be one of the greatest pop bands ever, it means Luv' can't be bad. (Something in this Dutch disco project's vocal feel also seems to hint of what was to come by the 1990s girl groups.)"

"They are kind of nice songs to play when you drive a long journey, like from California to New York. They are happy songs and up-tempo, a kind of lifted your spirit and energizing. The sound is excellent. It improved a lot as compare to 2001 release of LUV's greatest hits CD on Universal Music label as well. It must have been re-mastered for this release. Nice pictures too. Sexy ladies in skimpy outfits. All 4 CDs actually should fit into 3 CDs though. Go and buy it, you won't be disappointed. Highly recommended."

Luv' is a Dutch pop girl group which scored a string of successful hit records in a large part of Continental Europe and also South Africa and Mexico in the late 1970s and early 1980s.In 1976, two Dutch music producers, Hans van Hemert and Piet Souer, and a manager Han Meijer,decided to form a girl group, inspired by the German disco trio Silver Convention.
After the singles My Man (#12 in Holland and a Flemish Top 10 hit) and U.O.Me -Top 5 hit in the Netherlands and Flanders (Belgium),Luv' started it's Luv's international career (1978-1981).The You're the Greatest Lover single was their international breakthrough in 1978 and one million units of this record were sold. Apart from its homeland, Luv' topped the music charts in Belgium, in France, in Germany, in Austria, in Switzerland, in Denmark, in Poland, in South Africa and in Mexico. The follow-up singles ( Trojan Horse (a million seller), Casanova, Ooh, Yes I Do...) were successful. Their albums were big selling records (especially With Luv' and Lots of Luv').In 1978-1979, Luv' was Holland's best export act and received for their works the Export award (2,5 million records) from Conamus, a foundation dedicated to the promotion and support of Dutch music abroad.In Germany, the trio was often invited in two popular TV programmes.In 1979, the three singers, their producers and their new manager (Han Meijer was replaced by Pim Ter Linde who runned Interlinde Management) changed their strategy for better opportunities. That's why, they founded a limited company, Interluv'/Luv' BV , to control every aspect of their career. They chose a new publisher and a new record company (after a deal with Philips Records, they signed a one million Dutch Gulden contract with Carrere, a French label).After the One More Little Kissie single was released during the summer of 1980, Patty Brard suddenly left the band. She was immediately replaced by a model and limbo dancer from the Ricardo and The Flames revue, Ria Thielsch born on August 25. 1951 in Manokwari, New Guinea. Ria was officially introduced to the public when the My Number One single and the Forever Yours album were released in the fall of 1980. These records sold well in Holland and Belgium.In March 1981, the girls and their team annonced Luv's break-up.
Luv' sold from 1977 to 1981 seven million records (singles and albums)
In 1988, the original line-up was reunited for a Dutch TV charity show (Samen). Luv' later planned to record a come back album with the British producers Stock, Aitken & Waterman,however, it never happened.Then, José and Patty didn't want to belong to the band anymore.
1989 - 1992:
Marga Scheide (only original member) and two other singers, Diana van Berlo and Michelle Gold recorded as Luv' a single (Welcome To My Party) which reached the 22th position in the Dutch charts and the 28th position in the Flemish charts in the autumn of 1989. Moreover, the trio was involved with other Dutch girl groups (Frizzle Sizzle, Mai Tai...) in the All Stars project to help Third World children with the Star Maker single. In 1990, Michelle Gold was replaced by another vocalist, Carina Lemoine. During the Gulf War, Luv' performed in Dubai to support the Dutch troops. The formation splitted up in 1992.
1993 - 1994:
Because of the 70's revival due to the success of ABBA and Boney M compilations, the original Luv' girls got together. An anthology CD (Luv' Gold) and a medley single (Megamix '93) were released in 1993 and topped the Dutch charts (respectively #14 and #23 in the hit lists). The ladies went on tour in Holland, Belgium, Germany and Denmark. Then, what turned out to be their last studio album (All You Need Luv') was issued by an independent label (Roman Disc) failed to enter the hit lists. Later, José, Patty and Marga broke up again.
In 2003, to celebrate Luv's 25th anniversary, a double CD compilation (25 Jaar Na Waldolala) was releasedIn 2005, Luv' made a surprise showcase at the 40 year business anniversary of Hans van Hemert. One year later, a docusoap (Back In Luv) about their comeback was broadcast on RTL 5 (a Dutch TV channel) and on VTM (a Flemish channel), a DVD (also entitled Back In Luv) and a 4 CD Box (Completely in Luv with bonus tracks and remixes) came out.Nowadays, Patty, Marga and José perform in TV shows and are often booked for live performances (in discos, private parties, corporate events and festivals). Luv' is one of the few fully manufactured bands of the Disco and Dance era to be on stage with the original line-up (unlike Boney M. and Village People).
