Format: Audio CD
The UK band Hot Chocolate were regular visitors to the UK Top Ten right through the 1970s. Emma from about 1974 is a passionate dirge that tells the tragic story of Emmaline and So You Win Again was their huge top 5 hit from 1978. My other favourites here include You Sexy Thing, I'll Put You Together Again and their other massive hit, Every 1's A Winner.

The lead singer's smooth warm voice wraps itself perfectly around the synth-based instrumentation and all of the songs are tuneful and memorable. Hot Chocolate were perhaps the UK's premier soul band in the seventies, consistently scoring hits, even during the disco era when they mastered the form in their song Disco Queen.

If they weren't a British band, I would have expected them to be on the Stax label! Yes, this music is that good and Hot Chocolate's sound compares well with the best of Motown and Stax/Volt's romantic songs. Unfortunately this collection does not contain their first hit I Believe (In Love) and another good one Love Is Life. Those may be found on the album Their Greatest Hits.

What a fantastic record. Hot Chocolate made some absolutely marvellous records & this collection is testament to that fact.
The songs are smooth as silk.They can be a combination of very funky,sexy & saucy,bitter & sweet. The musicianship is fantastic,as is the production & if Errol's voice was a business, I reckon Ann Summers would be bankrupt.
You do forget with some bands how much quality they produced & Hot Chocolate are probably for many people, one of those bands. I thoroughly enjoy this record, its pure quality (& its a tip top party record too !)
A must own - no, really, it is !!

This is a wonderful collection. Errol Brown's voice is so smooth and sexy. The rumbling basslines,the sublime strings, A perfect combination. One of the late Mickey Most's discoveries and his most successful.
The hits keep coming. Every one a winner!

The UK band Hot Chocolate were regular visitors to the UK Top Ten right through the 1970s. I Believe (In Love) from 1971 is an oh so gentle, wistful song with melodious organ lines and a male voices that caresses the soul, Emma from about 1974 is a passionate dirge that tells the tragic story of Emmaline and So You Win Again was their huge top 5 hit from 1978. My other favourites here include You Sexy Thing, Love Is Life, I'll Put You Together Again and their other massive hit, Every 1's A Winner. The lead singer's smooth warm voice wraps itself perfectly around the synth-based instrumentation and all of the songs are tuneful and memorable.

I've been promising myself this CD for years - ever since I first heard 'It started with a Kiss' - the voice and arpegio guitar works so well for my favourite musical period - the 60s. The rest of the CD is also v.good - so all in all - a great buy for an excellant price. Even the kids rate it so there you go!

I bought this CD to reminisce as sometime, long, long ago when plastic albums (or LP's as we used to call them) were the only musical thing available, I owned 'Hot Chocolate's Greatest Hits' or whatever it was called at the time. The one with a Malteser in someones lips on the front (well I think thats what it was, I was only a teenager at the time) I played it over and over again, and thought that Errol Brown was THE most sexy man on earth, with his open neck shirts, medallion, bald head and provocative lyrics. I've just bought the CD and wow, it all came rushing back to me..I'd remembered all the words to every song, and it still gives that feeling....apart from I'm a middle aged married mother of 2 ...oooohhh, you sexy thing!!

Loved this, listening to this took me back in time to some great memories. So you win again is my favorite, I like how it tells you what position in the charts it was, would have been good if the year had been added. As it's the greatest hits, there's not much to say as you will only buy this if you like hot chocolate.
