Different version of the song "You Sexy Thing"!!!!
The first part is sung more like a ballad, than the powerful bestknown disco version. This version differs physically only by its matrix runout. It has 97 109 A-1. In the other version (the "Hit-Version": You Sexy Thing / A Warm Smile) the 1 is crossed with an "X" and a "2" is added. Labels and cover are totally the same to the second version. Also the durations printed on the label with 4:04 are both the same.
Didn't find anything in the internet to this. If there are any experts on Hot Chocolate please add additional info.

Also released with same labels and sleeve Hot Chocolate - You Sexy Thing / A Warm Smile but other version of song!

The info in the description of this particular version is right. I listened to both versions and recognized the different vocal sound in the beginning. I wonder that I didn't recognize it before. The voice sounds a little bit deeper ... it has more of an acoustic version in my opinion.
So I studied the cover of the 3 german 1c-pressings again and I found out something different. There is a capital letter "U" behind the release number in the upper left corner on the back cover. Everything else is exactly the same like the usually version. In my case the "U-cover" matches the acoustic version. But maybe this is circumstantial.
I think this version is not so rare because I just have two of this and the little differences are easy to miss and maybe because of that there are plenty of pressings in many collections. So that's still a lot of maybes. Perhaps someone else has more detailed information of this release.
