Love the way this has been packaged. Loads of the older songs, (19, in fact) on Disc 1, then some newer hits on the second CD, again, 19 tracks. I loved their old style of singing. Thrilled with the album. It's the best 'Hits' album of Hot Choc's that I've ever seen. I won't run the tracklist since someone else has already done it.
So sad to hear of the death of the brilliant Errol Brown, and had to buy this absolutely brilliant Hot Chocolate Compilation. It is such a pleasure to hear his brilliant singing talent, recognised originally by the genius that was John Lennon.
Been a fan of Hot Chocolate from the days of "Rumours". Got to say their 70's stuff was my preference, especially classics like "Emma" and "A child's prayer". Oh and how can one forget"I believe in Makerels". Had the honour of shaking Errol Brown's hand at a gig about 20 years ago - lovely human being and a great humanitarian. BTW: Where is his Knighthood?
