'HOT CHOCOLATE' DELIVERED MANY MEMORABLE TRACKS DURING THE 70'S AND 80'S'
on 5 February 2015
Sadly as many will know, the lead voice of 'Hot Chocolate' 'Errol Brown' past away after suffering from cancer on 6th May 2015
The music of course will live on in our memories of those times.
One of the greats in terms of both 'Romantic' and 'Disco' from the .70's and early 80's
The group was put together by lead-singer 'Errol Brown' toward the end of the 60's first calling themselves 'The Hot Chocolate Band'
however when producer 'Mickie Most' signed them up in 1970 it was shortened to Hot Chocolate.
The group were soon on the hit-trail with 'Love is Life' (Chart '6' 1970) which is not included upon this release, however most of the
groups best known releases are, they had numerous Top-Ten successes throughout the 70's into the 80's (along with several re-releases
and 'remixes' during the late 80's into the 90's.
Ironically , though enormously popular the group only had the one Chart-Topper that was 'So You Win Again' (1977) among their Top-Ten
successes on-board 'Brother Louie' (Chart '7' 1973) 'Emma' (Chart '3' 1974) ('Emma probably my personal favourite)'You Sexy Thing'
(Chart '2' 1975) 'No Doubt About It' (Chart '2' 1980) 'Girl Crazy' (Chart '7' 1982) and 'It Started With A Kiss' (Chart '5' 1982) among some
of the groups favourites for many and also on-board 'Every 1's A Winner' (Chart '12' 1978) and 'I'll Put You Together Again' (Chart '13' also
There are one or two significant Top-Ten-Hits not included on the albums play-list including - 'Put Your'e Love In Me' and 'A Child's Prayer'
though, overall this is a great reflection of the groups long-run on the pop/funk/disco scene of those times, 'Errol Brown' left the group in
1986 to pursue a solo career, he still performs to this day, the group with one or two member changes reformed n 1992 and also continue
to perform to this day.
