TR-150 Miss Hot Stuff/Mr. Hot Stuff - Clarence Reid
Clarence Reid (born February 14, 1939 in Cochran, Georgia) is probably better known as Blowfly. As Blowfly, he has recorded numerous albums, mostly of sex-based parodies of other songs, as well as original raps themed around sex. After moving to Miami, Florida, Reid started off writing songs for artists of the Henry Stonefamily including Betty Wright, Gwen McCrae, and KC & the Sunshine Band. He also recorded many songs of his own in the 60s and 70s including his 1969 hit record Nobody But You Babe. The 45rpm single which we choose for re-release might be his rarest, and certainly one of his best too. The backing track of Miss Hot Stuff is actually an instrumental called Screwdriver which was first released by Leon Austin. No question asked, Reid's screams and shouts puts the song to another level. You'd better be quick and get your hands on this limited repress - the other option is to spend hundreds of $$$ for an original copy, if you can find one.
