It reached number one on the . R&B Singles chart for four non-consecutive weeks and peaked at number four on the Billboard Hot 100 on the week ending 3 April 1965. Shotgun" uses only one chord throughout the entire song - A-flat seventh. Other songs featuring this same structure (or non-structure) are "Chain of Fools" and "Land of 1000 Dances".

While 1965 saw the release of their signature hit "Shotgun," they remained active on the charts through to 1972, disbanding in 1979.

Hot Shot (8-Trk, Album).

Autry DeWalt Mixon Jr. (June 14, 1931 – November 23, 1995), known professionally as Junior Walker, was an American saxophonist and vocalist who recorded for Motown during the 1960s. Walker was born Autry DeWalt Mixon Jr. on June 14, 1931 in Blytheville, Arkansas, and grew up in South Bend, Indiana

Produced by Lawrence Horn & Berry Gordy. Written By Junior Walker. 7. Tune Up. 8. Hot Cha. 11. Cleo’s Back. 12. Ain’t That the Truth.

This is likely the best album length project Motown released during the mid 60’s. A time when the label was Hitsville USA and emphasizing single records. The feeling is very much that of a long, steaming, stomping, funky jam session. It’s also for all intents and purposes a full on Funk Brothers album-with bassist Jamerson and drummer Benny Benjamin locking everything down for an album that consists only of medium to uptempo dance music and no ballads. Shotgun backed with Hot Cha was issued in January 1965 and is arguably the record that gave Junior Walker instant national (and even international) identity. It is forever associated with him as much as one immediately sees The Temptations when My Girl plays, the Supremes, palms-out and declaring, Stop!
