trying to find the name of 70's R&B group
I can't think nof the name of the R7B group that I saw at the Howard Theater in Wash. DC back in the 70's. They opened before Mothers Finest and their hit son g went like this: It's time to come together so we can move/Been down too long/Does anyone have a telephone/So we can communicate/On better terms/...Chorus...And you can call me, call me, call me, Call me on my hotline so I can tell you what's on my mind...Call me on my Hotline...

The Sylvers sang "Hot Line". They were a Jackson 5 type of a group with 5 brothers and 2 sisters in the act. Their best known song was "Boogie Fever", which I believe was a #1 tune. "Hot Line" will still be played on the radio, as an 70's oldies song, because it made the Top 10.

Does this help you at all?

Hey Thanks Jack! But this is a different group that did the one I'm trying to find. Ther beat was slower than the Sylvers tune. By the way, one of the Sylvers dropped by the club that I ran in DC. Believe it or not no one recognized him cause everyone had hairdo's in the Afro & Gheri-Kurl style back then! :) Thanks Again! Anyone else ever heard of this group I'm trying to find?

Well..there was another group called Shotgun. Their debut release "Hot Line" came out in 1977. There were of the funk groups that exploded at the time of disco. Let me know if this is the group.

Guru is right in that "Hot Line" was originally done by SHOTGUN but it was also covered in 1978 by both "Platinum Hook" and "Sweet Thunder". Here's a clip of Sweet Thunder's version
Sweet Thunder - Hot Line


That version was originally on their 1978 album but in 1995 they redid the song on the cd
Everybody's Singin' Love Songs

The original 1977 Shotgun
album
containing the song was also issued on CD in 1995.

You guys have made my night. If I can actually find any of these versions, especially Shotgun (I also loved Muthafunk back then), I'm gonna lose my mind. I've been looking for this forEVER! Thanks!
