Most Wanted – Jessie G. – That’s Hot (Nugget Records)
The rare Jesse Gould aka Jessie G. teaming up once again with producer Billy Nichols on the insanely string driven ‘That’s Hot’…
Using the same kind of flow as ‘Out Of Work’ released 4 years earlier, although with a more positive lyrical content. Therefore generating the same kind of demand on the second hand market.
Already hot back then (in 1981) and most likely still nowadays…
Billy Nichols was born in 1940 in Carrollton, MS. He learnt playing guitar by his own self, most likely getting inspiration from his dad who was playing Blues during his spare time.
Moving to Detroit, MI at the age of 24, he got himself a job at Motown, first playing with Martha & The Vandellas, then acting as a musical director for Marvin Gaye in 1965. The following years seeing him alternating his activities between touring and songwriting.
He would reach his peak when writing and producing ‘Do It (Til You’re Satisfied)’ and ‘Shout It’ for B.T. Express. He’s also responsible for Jesse Gould‘s ‘Out Of Work’ on P&P Records. Not to mention ‘That’s Hot’ for the then called Jessie G.
Signing as an artist on West End Records, he delivered a couple of gems under his own banner. Beginning with ‘Give Your Body Up To The Music’ and the boling hot ‘Diamond Ring’. And he also produced ‘The Adventures Of Super Rhymes’ and ‘Rhythm Rap Rock’ respectively for Jimmy Spicer and Count Coolout.
