Album Info

Karen Young vaulted to full-fledged disco diva status on the strength of one hit song. "Hot Shot" is a throbbing, latin-ish stormer that is a classic among disco junkies. The rhythm track is so hot it could have been a hit for anyone but Young's spirited, roaring vocal performance really sends it over the top. Even today, "Hot Shot" stands as one of the most salacious invitations of the disco era -- and that's no small feat. And notably it came a full year before Donna Summer's "Hotstuff" which was thematically similar. "Hot Shot" was released in 1978 by West End Records. West End was founded by Mel Cheren in 1976 and its releases were enormously popular in NYC discotheques. "Hot Shot" was its first hit and is still one of its best known. For years, on every visit to NYC I could count on WKTU to play "Hot Shot" at some point. It rocketed to No.1 on the Billboard dance charts, stayed there for 2 weeks and only relinquished the top spot to (The Fabulous) Sylvester's double A-sided single "(You Make Me Feel) Mighty Real/Dance (Disco Heat)." Despite it's failure to crack the pop Top 40 -- making it strictly a disco hit -- "Hot Shot" has enjoyed remarkable longevity. It even survived some pretty mediocre remixes in 2007. The album Hot Shot was released in 1978 as well. Young is obviously a gifted singer but the other tracks on Hot Shot don't really ignite. Even so, the album is listenable, particularly "Baby You Ain't Nothing Without Me."
