• This 4 CD clam shell box set features every A and B-side they issued on the seminal RAK Records label, all 36 singles

• ‘So You Win Again’ was the band’s sole No.1 single but they scored Top 10 hits with ‘Love Is Life’ (No.6), ‘I Believe In Love’ (No.8), ‘Brother Louie’ (No.7), ‘Emma’ (No.3), ‘A Child’s Prayer’ (No.7), ‘You Sexy Thing’ (No.2), ‘Put Your Love In Me’ (No.10), ‘No Doubt About It’ (No.2), ‘Girl Crazy’ (No.7), ‘It Started With A Kiss’ (No.5) and ‘What Kinda Boy You’re Lookin’ For Girl’ (No.10)

Hot Chocolate chalked up at least one hit single every year between 1970 and 1984, a rare achievement and they are among the Top 200 most successful UK chart artists of all time.

Unlike many UK ‘pop’ acts of the day they scored chart success in the USA where ‘Emma’ (No.3), ‘Disco Queen’ (No.28), ‘You Sexy Thing’ (No.3), ‘So You Win Again’ (No.31), and ‘Every 1’s A Winner’ (No.6) were all Billboard Top 40 hits.

24 of these singles were also chart entries in Germany while eight of them went Top 20 in Australia, the band scoring hits across most of Europe as well.
The booklet comes complete with detailed notes on each single by 1970s expert Phil Hendriks and is fully illustrated with sleeves from across the globe
