The Hot Chocolate Band – Give Peace A Chance (1969)

Hot Chocolate started their recording career making a reggae version of John Lennon’s “Give Peace A Chance”, but band leader Errol Brown was told he needed permission. Much to Brown’s surprise, he was contacted by Apple Records, discovered that John Lennon liked his version, and the group was subsequently signed to Apple Records. The link was short-lived as The Beatles were starting to break up, and the Apple connection soon ended.
