Reelin’ In the Years 103: Love is Life / Brother Louie (RIP Errol Brown)

I was sad to hear the news yesterday of the death of Errol Brown.

His band, Hot Chocolate, first came to my attention with this song in 1970.

Love is Life: Hot Chocolate

They were notable for being one of only three acts to have at least one (UK) hit in every year of the 1970s with Brown writing (or co-writing) most of them. In fact that run of chart success continued till 1984.

Perhaps their bravest release was Brother Louie, with a spoken word part which was voiced by British blues legend Alexis Korner.

Lester Errol Brown: 12/11/1943 – 6/5/2015. So it goes.
