BOX SELECTION (THEIR 8 RAK ALBUMS 1974-1983)
London soul band Hot Chocolate came together in 1968 and soon began recording for producer Mickie Most's RAK label. Most's Midas touch brought the group a steady stream of hits in England until 1975's “You Sexy Thing” put them in charts all over the world. The massive success of that oft-revived disco classic tends to obscure the rest of Hot Chocolate's catalog, something BOX SELECTION (THEIR 8 RAK ALBUMS 1974-1983) aims to rectify. This affordable set gathers all the studio albums recorded during the band's original incarnation, and every 1 is a winner. The 72 remastered tracks here include such U.K. Top Tens as “Emma,” “Put Your Love In Me,” and “So You Win Again,” which topped the British singles chart on this day in 1977. Highly polished productions, hook-filled songs and the charisma of frontman Errol Brown make Hot Chocolate quite addictive, and one taste of BOX SELECTION will keep you coming back for more.
