Digitally remastered and expanded edition of the solo album from this '60s British band who eventually became 10cc. Thanks to the novelty hit nature of the million-selling single 'Neanderthal Man', little attention was paid at the time to the other recordings cut by pre-10cc act Hotlegs. That's a shame, because the album Hotlegs Thinks: School Stinks was a veritable smorgasbord of turn-of-the-decade studio pop moves that deserves to be considered alongside the heavyweights of the era. With its roots in the aborted 1969 Frabjoy & Runcible Spoon (aka Kevin Godley & Lol Creme) album for Giorgio Gomelsky's Marmalade label, the Hotlegs LP was a daringly ambitious creation, peaking on the White Album-era McCartneyish ballads 'Take Me Back' and 'Today', the equally beautiful, Beach Boys-inspired 'All God's Children' and the sumptuous, 13 minute song suite 'On My Way/Indecision/The Return' ("our version of Side Two of Abbey Road", according to Godley).
