It has been a long long time since I had the chance to listen to anything by Hot Chocolate, since my vinyl is all stored away in a closet. I forgot how much I missed these guys. H.C. was everywhere on the radio in the seventies, with good reason. Happily, this collection has most of their best work.
The poignant "Emma", even leaving the 'message' aside shows their vocal abilities; deep and lush. But these fellas surely could burn down the house, and did so: "Every One's a Winner" is a classic, as is the now over-used "You Sexy Thing". They jam through "Don't Stop it Now", and "Could've Been a Lady" and even "Disco Queen". One of my personal favorites is "So You Win Again" for every one of us lucky guys who has been crushed by some gal (not to be confused with the similarly titled and messaged Hank Williams classic).
Good stuff.

As everyone else has said this is an excellent album of music from a great band. But there's something missing.

I have this album on vinyl. There is a (quite good) song on the vinyl called "Confetti Day" which is conspicuous by its absence on this CD. I wonder what happened to it. Why would they drop this song from the CD?

Otherwise an excellent album. If you like this kind of music, then there is much to like here.

Hot Chocolate, remarkable for being the first black British group to have continued success, made a carefully costructed, catchy brand of funk and soul music. Everyone knows You Sexy Thing because of its inclusion in The Full Monty, but most of the other 18 songs are well worth hearing too.
Hot Chocolate, fronted by the songwriter Errol Brown, didn't have a lot to say musically, but were at their best when their songs were emotional pop narratives, like Emma, It Started with a Kiss, and the anti-racist polemic Brother Louie. The major hits So You Win Again and the eponymous song are just pleasant light funk.
It's worth buying if you enjoy their biggest hits (and they stacked up an impressive number of them), but it's hardly an essential addition to one's collection.

HOT CHOCOLATE-VERY BEST OF HOT CHOCOALTE: Remembered today mainly for their biggest hit, the exuberant booty call YOU SEXY THING, England's racially mixed RNB outfit HOT CHOCOLATE actually produced a half dozen funk-infested dance inducers during the disco era (a tag they were above). ERROL BROWN's pleading vocal cascades and tortured screams fueled the doomed heroine ditty EMMA, while DISCO QUEEN and EVERY 1'S A WINNER pumped out irresistably fleshy bump 'n grind grooves. Almost as interesting as their own chartbusters were two group penned tracks that scored big for rock artists...YOU COULD HAVE BEEN A LADY was APRIL WINE's breakthrough and interracial love song BROTHER LOUIE sold a cool million in the hands of one hit wonders THE STORIES. While not held up today in the same light as American ensembles KOOL & THE GANG or EARTH, WIND & FIRE, HOT CHOCOLATE could deliver the goods, leaving behind this sturdy catalogue of cool soul party starters.

RATING: FOUR WHIPPED CREAMS

this joint was bumpin' for the most part, however, for me, i would've focussed more on their 70s material and left out a great bit of that 80s stuff. YOU SEXY THING is one of the groovinest songs i have ever heard period. i also love EMMA, the original BROTHER LOUIE, DISCO QUEEN (sampled like crazy), and others i cannot think of, dang!!!!! if you that british thing in your funk/rock music, then you will dig this for sure. if you prefer their earlier material, then find a collection that focuses on that. the one i saw omits BROTHER LOUIE, which is a no no for me.

I have been listening to the Hot Chocolate since the late 70s, this is 1999 and the music is still very fresh in my whole Being. It is a Gold that everyone needs to have.
