About this Episode

Foxy [00:30]
a side: "Hot Number"
b side: "Call It Love"
Dash Records 5050 1979
Nice medium groove b-side, but that a-side! Awe yeah, rock that talk box. Follow up to their 1978 smash hit "Get Off". Label brethren to KC & the Sunshine Band (and Weird Al for that matter).

Kim Deal [08:56]
a side: "Hot Shot"
b side: "Likkle More"
Not On Label DEAL02-7 2013
The 2nd of 5 solo singles released by Deal.

Donna Summer [14:18]
a side: "Hot Stuff"
b side: "Journey to the Center of Your Heart"
Casablanca Records NB 978 1979
Donna Summer and Giorgio Moroder of course, but also Skunk Baxter guitar solo? Hot stuff indeed!

Bobby Hatfield [22:05]
a side: "Hot Tamales"
b side: "I Need a Girl"

You know I love a good food song.

Ace [28:33]
a side: "How Long"
b side: "Sniffn' About"
Anchor Records ANC-21000 1974
This is about as close to hearing Mike + the Mechanics on Vinyl-O-Matic as you'll likely ever get.

Bruce Springsteen [36.35]
a side: "Hungry Heart"
b side: "Held Up with a Gun"
Columbia Records 11-11391 1980
Written for the Ramones? What? I would love to hear a Ramones version of this song. The b-side seems a little atypical... but what do I know, I'm not much of a Springsteen afficianado.

Chelsea Wolfe [42:10]
a side: "Hypnos"
b side: "Flame"
Sargent House Records SH155 2016
Beautifully doomy.

Elvis Costello [49:49]
a side: "I Can't Stand Up for Falling Down"

Stand up, sit down, rah rah rah, Elvis Elvis, rah rah rah!
