Hot Chocolate – The Artist
Hot Chocolate are a British soul band popular during the 1970s and 1980s, formed by Errol Brown and Tony Wilson. The act had at least one hit every year from 1970 to 1984, and their 1975 song “You Sexy Thing” made the Top 10 in three decades. Formed in 1968, the band initially consisted of vocalist Errol Brown, guitarist Franklyn De Allie, drummer Jim King (shortly thereafter replaced by the unrelated Ian King), percussionist Patrick Olive, and bassist Tony Wilson; with keyboardist Larry Ferguson joining the band in the following year. By 1970 the band’s line-up had changed again to include Harvey Hinsley and Tony Connor replacing De Allie and King respectively. It was in the disco era of the mid-1970s that Hot Chocolate became a big success. A combination of high production standards, the growing confidence of the main songwriting team of Wilson and Brown, and tight vocal harmonies enabled them to secure further big hits such as “You Sexy Thing” and “Every 1’s a Winner”.
So You Win Again – The Song
“So You Win Again“ is a popular single from the Hot Chocolate album Every 1’s a Winner. The single was released in June 1977. Written by Russ Ballard and produced by Mickie Most, it is the band’s sole UK number one single, spending three weeks at the top in July 1977. The song was also popular world-wide especially in Australia and the United states.
