Level 42 – Hot Water (US 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on 25th February 2016

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1986

A. Front

“Hot Water” is a single released in 1984 by the British musical group Level 42. It was released a couple of weeks before the album True Colours. The single reached #18 on the UK Singles Chart and was a top ten hit in the Netherlands and Norway. The song was produced by Ken Scott

In 1985, “Hot Water” and another True Colours song, “The Chant Has Begun”, were tacked onto the US version of Level 42’s breakthrough album, World Machine, in place of “I Sleep on My Heart,” “Dream Crazy” (which only appeared on the European CD version of the album), and “Coup D’Etat.” “Hot Water” was released as the US follow-up single to the World Machine breakthrough single, “Something About You” in 1986; it peaked at #87.
