Fragmented Notes:

Hot - Line Records (Hot Line Records & Tapes) was a New Orleans Southern Soul Label and a record shop. A subsidary label from NOLA RECORDS http://www.discogs.com/label/117384-Nola-Records (from 1965 to 1972???)

Senator Jones has worked as promotion man for Malaco in Mississippi. Trip back to New Orleans he contacted with Lee Hildebrand of Mardi Gras records and worked more for the "bluessoul" R&B popular genre.

More realeases known are:
HOT LINE RECORDS 118 June Gardner - 99 plus 1 cc Mustard Greens (1965)
HOT LINE RECORDS 119 ???
HOT LINE RECORDS 120 Senator Jones - Wachta Gonna Do cc Boston Fleet
Hot Line 118 appears to have been the label’s very first release. The R&B Indies discography of the label starts with it, as it has the lowest matrix numbers (174-1290/1291) in the Hot Line series. Why the release number led off with 118 is a mystery; and there were only three releases with numbers this low (118, 119 & 120). The remainder ran from #901 forward.

Most of the productions are from Allen Toussaint & Wardell Quezergue, co-owner of Nola Records (started 1964) and Toussaint’s main music business rival at the time.
