Album artwork for Hot Chocolate by Hot Chocolate

Not to be confused with English commercial funk outfit, Lou Ragland’s Hot Chocolate trio steamed out of the Cleveland scene in the early ’70s powered by their own recipe of groove-forward R&B. Housed in a replica jacket showcasing Dick Dugan’s ubiquitous cartooning, Numero is proud to present the first American repressing of this Forest City touchstone since its original release; a steaming mugful of funkier-than-thou tunes from the incomparable Ragland songbook. Hot is, after all, funk’s ideal serving temperature.
