BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1979
Released in 1979 “Totally Hot” was the third single from Olivia Newton-John’s ninth studio album of the same name. The disco flavored track was a minor hit in the US peaking at #52 after spending six weeks on the Billboard singles chart. In Canada the single reached #92.
Considerd to be one of the rarest Olivia Newton-John records this 12″ was only released in Mexico and is extremely hard to find. The “Disco Mix” is exclusive to this release. In the US an edit of this mix was used for the 7″ single and has never appeared on CD. In 2010 Japan included the “Disco Mix” as a bonus track on the SHM release of the “Totally Hot” album, however the mix used was taken from vinyl and as occurs with many remastered CD’s clips severely (see clipping).
The titles on the label are written in Spainsh and English.
